I finally got a haircut since my head started feeling really heavy and I was getting headaches from the additional weight of my hair. I’m not really used to long hair anymore, so shorter is better.
Originally, I planned to get my hair cut like Carey Mulligan’s but since my sister’s graduation is coming up in a few months, I wanted to make sure I looked at least decent for the photos.
So, I reverted back to a style I know looks more sophisticated than my current one. I had a similar cut 4+ years go in New York, when I was there to visit a friend.
It looked pretty good then, so I asked my stylist for the same look, an A-line straight bob with slight layering. He did a fantastic job and I think it turned out even better than when I had it cut in New York.
It makes me look more professional than when I had longer hair. Now, I think I look more like a polished young professional instead of a immature recent grad.

I find long hair that flows past your elbows is too long for a petite. It can make you look younger and weighed down. But any length between your shoulders and the middle of your bicep is more than enough to keep you happy and looking great if you want a longer hairstyle. Lately, I’ve been bitten by the short hair bug so I’m attempting styles that will range from the shoulders up the the ears. The actual style may change depending on what my stylist suggests and my face shape.
For an A-line bob, since my face is pretty round, it’s best not to go much higher than a shoulder-length since it adds more roundness to my face. The slight layers take out the weight at the bottom to create lightness and avoid a triangle shape. Side swept bangs with a slight asymmetrical line polishes the look to keep it fresh and young. It’s a perfect summer haircut since it’s long enough to tie back and short enough to feel the breeze.
