Change is as good as a rest?
For most of my life I have had my hair in pretty much the same style, sometimes long, sometimes a bit shorter but that's about the most to have changed.
Back in 2007 I went for a more drastic cut after reading somewhere that it's time to get a new hair cut if you have had the same one since school or if you have lost or gained more than 3 stone. As both of those thins applied to me I decided to be brave and put myself in the capable hands of a hairdresser friend of mine.
I was still not brave enough to consider having it all chopped off but I went shorter than I had ever done before and it was graduated at the back so for the first time ever there was no way I could put it up any more!
It was to date my most favourite hair cut but since then I've not really been able to repeat it, especially since moving to Cyprus. My problem is that although I like it short like in the picture above I can't stand to not be able to tie it up in the summer, I also want it to be low maintenance or it will look rough all the time, especially with a new baby on the way! In summer I'm in and out of water all the time and using a hair-dryer is the last thing you want to do after a nice cool shower, so something that doesn't need a lot of styling is also a requirement!
I'm thinking it's time to take the plunge and go for a proper short style, although I'm nervous about losing the ability to chuck it in a ponytail and be done with it!
Any suggestions will be gratefully received!
