growing out my hair...

So, I'm trying to grow out my hair, I think. I used to have long hair, and liked it. But for about the last 10 years, I have had med/short hair and can never make it through this "ugly" phase before losing my patience and cutting it off again.

SO, today, I found one of those makeover sites and tried on a few long hair styles to see how I'd look. What do you think? BE HONEST.

ps, I feel very odd posting about something as unimportant as my hair...but, it's what's on my mind today. (lame, huh?)

here's me with no bangs and long hair...


And here's me with bangs and long hair

Va va va VOOM!
Your 'try on hair' photos are the nicest I've ever seen. How'd you get it to look SO good? (Maybe it's just you ) :)
I hear that bangs are in right now. Both photo's of you are lovely. I liked the color better on the bangs pic.(to each his/her own) Really, both styles are gorgeous on you! ~You're a good lookin' lady!
~I'm growing my hair out long...bangs down to my ears/graduated layers throughout.Talk about that sucky grow out phase.

i love both a lot, but my favorite is the one with bangs. So young and hip! i am considering cutting bangs. Emma and i are growing our hair for locks of love right now, so no haircut in the near future. I think you should push past the phase and grow it out - your hubby will love it.

Both of them looked AWESOME. You can do it - you can get through the ugly phase. I know bangs are really in right now, but I think I liked the bangless one better.

I actually like the one without bags as well. I just had my first bangs cut since....well, like I told her, the last time was when I did one big curl up and one big curl down. Do you remember?

i like the 'bangs' cut. I say, go for it! I think you'll look hot! I'm thinking I'm going to cut it short tomorrow. Not short, short...just new and short. I'll have to try your website!

Julie said...

okay, i did it but I used up my 'free looks' really fast. I didn't realize you had only a few. I needed a better picture. Yours turned out soooo cute!

Trish said...

Fun!! They are both cute, but I really like your hair short!
I do love the new look of the blog and that picture of the preschooler makes me laugh everytime I see it!

Hot Mama! I like the 2nd cut the very best. I understand about the "ugly phase", I can't grow my out b/c I hate that phase and I get bored too easily. Those long cuts do look great on you though!

Thanks girls! I updated my post to include a link to the makeover site...check it out! It's fun. I made myself look like a man (beard and all) and the preschooler thought it was HILARIOUS! I couldn't get my pic to load though...

SO cute! i also love your cute bob-do that you have now, but love the long one w/ bangs. (i think it reminds me of MY hair) : ) you're a cutie no matter what!

i like the top photo.
that's a fun idea.
i will give it a try.
i have every hairstyle and now my husband really wants me to keep it long. if he didn't care (as much as he does)i would totally have new colors adn styles all the time. i love hair.
but i am also very low maintence so it probably wouldn't work right? i can barely remember to make an appt. let alone come up with new and cute things.

The one with the bangs looks more like you, I think and it's super cute. It's just crazy to think of you with long hair! I've never seen it that way. Aren't those sites fun? If you go to Instyle.com, you can do the same thing with "celebrity" hairstyles and I think you can do it as many times as you want. I tried it too, I'll have to send you what I looked like. If you can believe it, a hairstyle that Ashley or Mary-Kate Olsen had actually looked the best on me! Go figure!
Miss you!
