I am not one of those girls who is super-attached to her hair, which I think is a good thing: There is a lot of other stuff I get worked up about, and my hair does not need to be part of that. Over the past couple of years, it’s been really long, really short, mid-length, layered, un-layered, dyed ombre and dyed back to its natural color. I’ve never done anything really dramatic, like dye it blonde or chop it into a pixie, but my philosophy is basically, “It’s just hair. It’ll grow back.”
That said, I have discovered that my hair looks best in a shoulder-length-or-slightly-above bob, and I’ve actually kept it that length for almost a year, which is a big deal for me. Unfortunately, something I have not yet discovered is exactly what to do from a styling standpoint: My impetus is always to straighten it, but my hair’s naturally wavy texture plus the Florida humidity equals some interesting hair behavior on days when the weather’s not perfect.
I’m going to see my stylist, Niki, soon, so I’ve been doing some Pinterest reconaissance, and I think for the first time ever I’m going to ask Niki to show me how to style my hair so that it looks good with waves as opposed to flat-ironing it into submission. Here are my inspiration photos.
Do you have a love/hate relationship with your hair? Do you put a lot of effort into it, or do you just let it do what it wants? And yes, I realize this post is 100 percent frivolous, but sometimes those are the most fun!
P.S. The other question I’m forever asking myself when it comes to hair: Bangs or no bangs?
