Later tonight is the second round of the Petite Fashion Challenge hosted by Kelly of AlterationsNeeded. I don’t want to give away my whole look, so this is just a quick glimpse of what’s coming up.
If you couldn’t tell already, my hair is getting longer and I haven’t stopped by the salon yet. Since it’s been blazing lately, I’m enjoying the shorter hair since I don’t have to tie it up.
Right now, it’s at that stage where I’ve moved away from the Justin Bieber hair to the Alice from Twilight look. Not sure which one I prefer but it’s kind of nice to experiment with this length.
Maybe I’ll even get it curled so it looks wavy.
Do you think I should grow it out or cut it short?
For a while now, I’ve been talking about cutting my hair to look like Carey Mulligan’s and I went for it this weekend.
My stylist was pretty excited and he thought that I would look fabulous. The other people in the salon looked at me like I lost my mind. I guess, to them, it was like I was giving up my femininity with short hair.
But I’d like to think that it adds to it. I look really different, but it’s kind of nice.
I don’t have to blow dry my hair, I can just add a bit of wax for texture, and the messier I style it, the better it looks!
My friends say that this cut shows my face more and my delicate features are better defined. When I had long hair, it hid my features so you couldn’t really tell what I look like.
Another plus is that I actually have volume in my hair now. I had the worst time making my hair fluffy and voluminous because the weight of my hair always pulls it down after a couple of hours and it just sticks to my scalp by the end of the day.
So far, I’m having fun with my new haircut and it’s kind of exciting since I’ve NEVER had my hair this short before.

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.
Every year around this time, I feel the need to change my hairstyle. Two years ago, I gave up hair dye because it makes my hair unhealthy. I also got bangs to make my high forehead less noticeable. This year, I want to chop it all off.
At first, I wanted something like this…
Which one should I choose?
