I know how the saying goes. It’s been drilled into my brain since puberty. “When going through a major lifestyle change, never quit your job, call your ex, or cut your hair.” It’s a girl’s mantra that’s been passed down through the ages. And I’ve always obeyed the unwritten law.
Here’s the thing: I’ve been thinking about changing my hair for awhile now. And here, on the cusp of my 31st birthday, I’m thinking about it even harder. See, I got all my hair chopped off in 2008. And don’t get me wrong—I still love it. I think the style suits my face. But I’m worried that, because I’ve had the same hairstyle for 4 years, that it’s only a matter of time before I get ambushed by a certain style duo for Crimes Committed Against Fashion.
So, I’ve been toying with the idea of changing my hair, maybe even growing it out. I’m having a hard time visualizing what I’ll look like with a different hairstyle, so I did what I do and turned to Photoshop for help. Here are a few looks I’m considering:
The Layered Bob
Inspired by Mariska Hargitay.Perfect for a round face. And a crime-fighter extraordinaire. That’s me, right?
The “I’m Out Of My Mind For Even Considering This Hairstyle” Hairstyle
But if GaGa can do it, I can do it. Right? (Did I seriously
Photoshop pink hair on my head? Sheesh.)
Huh. Maybe I should reconsider. Especially since I’m realizing now that the above-picture makes my head look like a cross between an Easter Egg and an old-fashioned football helmet.
