And here is what I ended up with. I did have a fringe cut in but they just don't suit me. I look 'weird' with a full on flat fringe so I swept it to the side but because it's short it didn't look right.
Here I am looking daft with the fringe down - please don't all laugh at once!
Over the week I have really struggled with it. To say I hated it doesn't even cover it. I tried straight, I tried curly, I tried fringe down, to the side, clipped up - I just wasn't happy :-( The last photo is how I wore it when it was longer so what was the point in having it cut?
I called a lady who has cut my hair once before and as luck would have it she had a cancellation and could fit me in yesterday (Friday). IMMEDIATELY she saw the issue. The one length bob just isn't for my face/height/build and so we went for the graduated bob. She came, she cut, she dried and left all within the hour and for £15. HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY!
I bought the Babyliss big hair dryer last week - bargain at £40 from Feel Unique who offer free delivery - result!
Now to do it myself! Watch this space for hair-gate update!
