Short hair love

"Short hair may be low-maintenance in the style department, but it's like a needy boyfriend when it comes to trims."

This sentence just made my morning! It not only makes me smile at the less-than-subtle jest, but it makes me smile at the truthful comparison.

I have short hair. I love my short hair. I adore my bob and think it is a great cut for my face, but it truly is a needy little thing, let me tell you! Not only does my hair grow quickly, but it grows unevenly. Note: we are talking needy, clingy boyfriend-like hair now! The back grows faster than the front, which means that despite getting the back nicely stacked, by the time 5 or 6 weeks have passed it's hard to tell what my cut originally looked like. I feel disheveled and find myself getting angry with my hair in the morning. I am more than willing to admit that this issue is far more noticeable by myself and my hair dresser than by anyone else, but it still irks me.

I am currently hitting that I-feel-disheveled point, but am happy to say that I have a hair appointment already scheduled for tomorrow afternoon. My hair has behaved far better this go-around than usual, so my morning battles have been minimal. Nonetheless, I am looking forward to getting my scalp massaged, my dead-ends trimmed and my short hair refreshed!

On a side note, I recently tried a new shampoo and I LOVE it! It's L'Oreal EverPure Moisture Shampoo for color-treated hair, and it's getting my seal of approval so far. I usually find that moisturizing shampoo makes my hair too soft and takes any body out of it, but not this lovely product; this makes my hair soft, light and healthy-looking. And, bonus: it smells like an Aveda product (rosemary and juniper) without the associated ridiculous price tag. I am in heaven!


  1. If I could pull of a short hair style I totally would!! I tried in junior high and it was a major fail.
    I love it on you though! It makes you look mature and classy!

  2. Aww, I think you made me blush. :-) lol.
    You hair is faaaar too gorgeous to ever cut too short, my dear!

  3. I so wish I could rock straight hair! My frizzy mane would never succumb to the look. Sigh.

  4. I can't even remember what it was like not to have short hair. Mine's been short since high school!

  5. I have long hair, but I use that Shampoo too! I don't fuss much about shampoos, but I use the Loreal conditioner too, and it seems to work (By work, I mean, If I can get a comb through my hair without a lot of effort) I PREFER a pricier conditioner, but I use the Loreal one as back up!

  6. I think it was the scent more than anything that drew me to it initially.


Thanks for stopping by!
