Pinterest Leads to All Sorts of Temptations

Growing out your hair always feels like a never ending battle with resisting the urge to chop it here and there just to give yourself a whole new look. My mood on my hair can honestly change from week to week. Getting bored with my hair, I dyed it a sort of deep red colour (not brown like it looks above) which I love that is only really noticeable if the light catches it just right. Recently I was so thrilled that I could finally tie/pin my fringe back without it looking ridiculous. Then my fingers got the itch to do something different. I was so bored of my hair lacking any real style.

No problem, I thought. I'll just look at hairstyles on Pinterest to give me ideas for closer to my wedding when I'll no doubt want a little hair cut. Until then I can just stay away from the scissors except from a little trim to my ends to keep them healthy. It never is as simple as that when it comes to Pinterest though, is it?

Suddenly I am faced with pictures upon pictures of gorgeous celebrities showing off their enviable locks that I could only ever dream of having. I can just feel the itch growing stronger and the little voice in my head saying "Do something different. Cut it." And oh, I was doing so well at resisting the urge until I started looking at Zooey Deschanel and her all-around beauty. I had a serious case of the hair envy. I wanted her trademark fringe and long locks that looked so pretty when curled.  It would be enough to make a difference to my overall hairstyle if I cut myself a fringe, without going too far and chopping the whole lot off. Then again, did I really want the fringe or just to look like the beautiful Zooey? Only one way to find out.

I slept on it.

When I woke up I still had the urge (and fear) to go for it. I took a deep breath and decided to go for it. It's only hair. It will grow back soon enough. So I grabbed my hair scissors and a few snips later the fringe I had been growing out for months which was passed the end of my nose, was sitting just above my eyes.

It isn't perfect. I'm not a hairdresser. However, I do like it. I'm happy with it. It is nice to have a little change once in a while.

Sadly though, I still don't look like Zooey...

  1. You look lovely! Good for you on doing it yourself - I manage to cut my own hair (with layers I may add) but the idea of cutting in a fringe (although I do have a side fringe) really scares me! I love the color of your hair, it's so rich!

    1. Thank you! Yeah, I've been cutting my hair myself for about two years now and whilst it isn't perfect I *think* I do a good enough job of it!

  2. your hair looks absolutely gorgeous and it looks so silky! I'd love to have thick enough hair to have a fringe and it really suits you. I think we all envy Zooey and her beauty :)

    1. Thanks :) Zooey is definitely my hair crush at the moment. It always looks so lovely.
