A Fresh Hair Cut

Just another mini post for today…. I got my hair cut last night!

Prior to my wedding 3 years ago I’ve always had shortshortshort hair.  So for some reason I decided I wanted long hair and grew it out for the wedding and have been getting it longer and longer ever since.

For some reason I just felt like it was too much and I needed a change.  My hair was starting to look drab and lifeless and I didn’t even want to bother styling it as a result.

I have a hair stylist who comes to my own home to do my hair (highlights & cut) along with doing Felix’s hair which I love.

I gave her these three images as inspiration:

Nina Leen for Life Mag.

The ever elegant, Grace Kelly.

And a modern inspiration, Reese Witherspoon.

I personally think that these three cuts (all on my pinterest board) are nearly the same (or at least the styling is).  I thought this length would enable me to curl my hair a bit easier while having a fresh new do.  Plus, I think I have a similar texture hair to Reese and Grace; so if they can pull it off I figured I could too.  heh

With these images in mind, my hair gal (Molly) took quite a bit of length off and I love it so much more!

I don’t have curly hair naturally, in fact it’s stick straight.  She curled it up for me, just for fun.  :)

It’s only been a few hours and it already feels fresh and easy.  It’s silly but I can’t wait to wash my hair and attempt to style it on my own.  :)  While I liked having long hair, I think this is a big improvement don’t you think?

    Adorable! It looks great on you!

    Squee I wondered if you were up to that when I saw those pins! That’s a great length on you and it’ll be so much easier to style. It looks fabulous!! I also find it’s a little easier to go shorter in winter, less hair to look craptastic when the weather hits. I’m due to chop a couple of inches myself.

      Nothing gets past you Tasha. :) If you saw my pins you probably saw the really short hair do in there. I chickened out on going any shorter, but am glad I still have some length to play around with still.

    Really gorgeous – you look so stylish!

    BABE ALERT!! As much as I loved your long hair – this is definitely an upgrade! Short hair is so much easier to style, too, at least when it comes to pin curls and stuff (and they don’t fall out as fast, since the hair isn’t as heavy)!! I really love your new ‘do, you look gorgeous, Liz!

      Thanks Miss Lauren! :) After looking at my pictures, I feel like I have the same cut as you do. Which is totally gorgeous on you btw!

    looks great! when you do style it yourself you’ve got to do a little hair tutorial. i’ve got a similar hair length but i never do anything with my hair and i love your inspiration pics and your new do!

      Thanks Dixie! We’ll see what I come up with. I’m such a newbie myself when it comes to doing my own hair. I feel like I missed out on learning how to do one’s hair in my youth since I’ve always had it short.

      I was on pinterest and I found this easy looking tutorial: http://www.pinspire.com/pin/show/10679952

    You’re a babe either length, but the short style really suits you!

    • Liz / Dec 6 2012

      Heh Thanks Wanett, you’re such a sweetie! :)

    Wow Liz, you look stunning! Your long hair was lovely too, but this new do is so chic and classy…and fun and flirty! Love it!!!

    Gorgeous! You look adorable and pretty close interpretation of the inspiration pictures.

    I used to have VERY short hair… and once I grew it out I never went back LOL That being said, I am not afraid of anything chin length or more… but my hair needs a slightly longer length or it gets kinda wild ;)
    Yours looks lovely though, and I know you will have a lot of fun styling it (I have seen several Grace looks around the web recently… perfect timing ;))

  13. Meli / Dec 6 2012

    Very cute! I like it!

  14. Ginger / Dec 6 2012

    Cute cut! It’s very you! You have great hair– it looks amazing both ways!

  15. Liz / Dec 6 2012

    It looks fabulous – very chic!
    I have just cut mine off too – summer inspired me to go short!

    So Michelle and I are sitting at Sister Arts last night for the sweater knit along, and we’re chatting and she goes, “Have you seen Liz’s hair cut? It’s super cute!” and I said “OMG WHAT.” And then my phone died and I couldn’t look this up to see your awesome haircut.

    I ABSOLUTELY LOVE YOUR NEW HAIR!!! It’s fresh and fabulous, and I love how you’ve styled it here!! So so gorgeous :)

    • Liz / Dec 7 2012

      Heh Thanks Lady! As you were knitting I was at the gym slaving away. :( Would have much more preferred to be knitting with you peeps.
