So, I need a haircut. My hair is really, really long. I think the last time I got my hair cut was around 12 months ago and that was only a trim.
I'm not going to lie: I have NOT been taking care of my hair. The ends are horrible; split ends all over the place. I guess I haven't been paying much attention, since I never meant for it to get this long! Believe me, my hair is not this long as a fashion thing - it's pure laziness!
To give you an idea of how long it is. (Pic from Google Images)
Anyway, it is time for a cut. I was planning on lopping off around 10-15cms. It would still be long; around shoulder blade/boob (depending on which angle you're viewing me from ;) ) length - nothing drastic, or overly exciting. A safe decision. Something like this (loving the colour too!):

But then I had to go look for inspiration, didn't I? Now I'm more than a little confused! I found these:
Katie Holmes - I am obsessed with these two pictures, loving that hair! (Pics from Google Images)
I have done the blunt fringe twice before. It looked good the first time, but when I got it done again a few years later, it just wasn't the same. Probably won't be going there again for another couple of years. The bob, however, I am considering.
Also inspiring this extreme change is Domestic Divinity. When I first saw the pics in December (here) I loved it, but never imagined I'd be able to pull it off (I feel so dirty saying that... I may be a little immature!). I also love her current haircut, but I KNOW I definitely could not make that work!
I am also loving the angled bob (shorter at the back, and tapers down towards the front) - but Winter is coming, and I my neck will get cold! That's my excuse anyway. I just have no guts. (Pic from Google Images)
Other things that I must consider: I look crap with a side part, so I am stuck with a centre part. My hair is very straight and does not hold styles well.
Some centre part action! (Pics from Google Images)
When I was around 17, I dyed my hair very dark brown, and it has been that way ever since. I'm currently growing it out to my natural colour, I've made the dark brown fade enough so the regrowth kind of blends in. Needless to say, my hair is up most of the time to hide this! Have you ever made a big change regarding your hair?
I also need to ask: what are the drawbacks to having shoulder length or shorter hair? I know that it will be difficult to put up in a ponytail (lazy work days), but I'm thinking it would be easy to style - I'm not really sure on that though.
So, that's what I'm thinking in the way of hairstyles... don't even get me started on what colour I'm going to choose (Lauren Conrad is my hair colour idol FYI)!
