Growin' it out.

Tuesday, August 26, 2014


Dear bob, or "The Hayden" as I so graciously dubbed you,

It's been real. We've had some good times together. People loved you. So did I. I still do. But it's time to move on. I know, I know, I said I'd never go back to long hair. But people change. Grow. {No pun intended.} Don't be upset. It's not you, I promise. Thanks for the memories. 

When I chopped my hair, I was so ready for a change and over my long hair, and I loved the short so much that I swore I would never go back. But I feel like it's run its course. I'm starting to once again long for messy buns and side braids and long curls. 

If I had it my way, I would just twitch my nose like Samantha Stevens and my hair would be juuust the perfect length. Sadly, that is not the way real life works. To get to that perfect stage, I'm gonna have to go through the "growing out" stages that feel like they take forever first. I'd never had an angled cut before this, so when I first decided I wanted to grow it out, I thought I was going to have to deal with awkward, less-than-flattering phases. However, thanks to google and many hours scouring pinterest, I've found that there are lotsa fun ways to deal with waiting for length. 

The first most obvious stage for growing is the lob, which I love the look of and I've had a variation of before, so I'm ready for it. I'm visiting my stylist in a couple of weeks and poor thing won't know what hit her with all my hair talk. Maybe I'll just print out this post to show her. That would be interesting. 

Here's some styles I'm lovin'......

Trying to grow out your hair can be a long and exhausting process, but I'm up for the challenge. And who knows? My mind might change again and have things chopped. But that's the thing about hair. It always grows back.
