Advice Please: Hair Rut
This is going to be a new feature on my blog. I will be asking my readers to offer their advice, opinions, suggestions and two pence worth on various style issues I may be having. I mean, we all like to have our say, right?
Most blogs offer YOU their advice but following the amazing shoes suggestions on this post
, I have realised there is a wealth of varied knowledge out there to be tapped into.
And so, my first request for style advice is this: I am in a hair rut and I need a change. At the moment my hair is one length and naturally brown. I have spent years growing all the layers out because my hair was just too wispy for all that and I deemed my fringe impractical with my fieldwork
in the tropics. But now I am just feeling so blah about my hair. I miss my fringe – I miss the way it framed my face and I miss the way it hid my unruly eyebrows. But I don’t miss the high maintenance of it all (another reason for my current state of hair).
I am also at a point in my life where little stragglers of grey are appearing and trying to grab each one of them to pull out is just too much effort and saddening at the same time (I will enjoy my long silver hair in a couple of decades time <- this has been much fantasised about). So it is necessary to colour my hair for the first time in years too.
(Some of my hair history)
My options are as follows:
1. Stay with the one-length hair and colour with dark brown hair dye.
2. Cut a fringe and colour dark brown.
3. Colour red.
4. Colour red AND cut fringe.
Here are some hairstyles I am particularly liking…
Let me know what you think!
