Those who follow me on facebook and twitter already had a sneak preview, but this weekend a bunch of us headed over to Shona's for a group session with our lovely hairdresser Wendy. After much debate, I decided to take the plunge and go for a much shorter style - quite an adventure after having long hair most of my life (the only time I've had it anywhere like this short was when I was about 11, and I quickly let it grow back out that time).
And the day after...
What do you think? My mother and sister say it makes me look younger. Either way, I'm delighted with it - it's perfect for styling 30s, 40s, 50s or 60s (when Wendy first blowdried it, she gave it a fabulous Jackie Kennedy bouffant - so much fun!). I've been trying out different hats with this new length too.
Now I just need to learn how to style it properly with rollers and things. I've never really been able to do pincurls easily because it's so thick and I'm unskilled, but at this length I might actually be able to manage it - watch this space!
