Getting my hair cut is always a huge event for me. I have super thick, blonde hair, and whenever I sit in that chair at the hair salon, I freak out. I'm planning on getting my hair cut, and probably highlighted, before I go back to school in August and I'm on the prowl for something new that I can do to my hair.
A little background story, when I was in second grade my hair was starting to get really thick and I just couldn't take care of it by myself. My mom would always have to brush it, and of course, I would get major knots. Tears were shed, my scalp was constantly hurting from brushing it so much, and my mom had to actually cut out knots sometimes when they got too bad. That being said, she decided that the best idea was to cut my hair super short - just below my ears. I hated it, to say the least.
I've grown out my hair ever since then and I'm so scared to cut it short again. My hair is so thick that when it's cut short, it just poofs out and looks enourmous, not flattering. I was awarded "Best Hair" in my high school superlatives due to my long hair, but now, I feel like I need a little bit of a change. I'm not sure if I should try layers, or a shorter length, or maybe even a color change. You can see what my hair looks like now in the pictures above. I could use any and all opinions! I'm being pulled in all directions from people telling to not cut it at all and other telling me to chop it all off. Help me!
I absolutely adore Lauren Conrad. I think she's super classy and fabulous, and of course, always beautiful. She always knows how to present herself and she hasn't rocked a hairstyle that I haven't liked yet. In fact, today she decided to dye her tips these bright colors. It's so bold - I love it! It looks so good with that tone of blonde hair, but I just don't know if I could pull off such a daring move. I feel like it might cause more bad attention than good, and I don't know how my family and friends would take such a unique look. What are your thoughts?
