the grown out bob

A week or so ago I popped to Toni and Guy to have myself a good hair cut as it had been far too long since I'd been to the hairdressers. I went in with the intentions of just having a regular trim but after having a chat with my lovely hairdresser came to the conclusion that a grown out bob style was what I fancied and told her to just cut off as much as she wanted to. In the past I've been really quite precious about my long hair but have realised it grows back remarkably quickly meaning it's easy for me to swap and change styles, which is always to my hairdressers delight as they can have a bit of a play with the style of the cut. I'm pretty sure that I had around four inches chopped off in total, not a huge amount but enough to give me a good shock when I saw how much fell to the floor when being cut. I couldn't be more pleased with the end result, it looks so effortless and suits the shape of my face much more than how heavy looking my hair was before. It's also massively easier to style, I blow dry it roughly for a few minutes and then spritz with salt spray and run some oil through the ends and I'm good to go. I also think she did a cracking job with my fringe too, I can definitely see myself sticking with this style for a long time from now on if not only for the amount of time and effort it saves in a morning. I've also let the black dye fade out in an effort to go back to a more natural medium ash brown tone, I may eventually go back to black but for now I'm enjoying my natural colour again.


  1. I love this, it really suits you. I wish I had the courage to chop my hair but it's got so long, I just want to carry on growing it.

  2. loveee this cut on you, and the colour too (:

  3. I love the hair cut! I want to say that this looks like my hair right now. It was bob cut and the length is only up to my jaw, but it's been a year so it has grown quite long. But your hair looks a billion times better. And I love your fringe too! <3
