My hair is in an awkward stage. The angled a-line bob is now growing into what I believe is called (attractively) a “lob”… but it needs some serious shaping. I’ve been hanging out in this limbo land for a while because I’ve been trying to decide whether to cut it again or let it grow a bit. I’ve never been a big fan of myself with long hair. It gets really thick and full at the ends and gives me an attractive triangle head, if ya know what I mean.
So I started looking into how the hip young kids are wearing it these days (crap, I feel so old), and found a couple of styles I really like. I’m definitely keeping the bangs, but I think I’ll be thickening them and chopping my angled cut into a blunt cut; because apparently, it’s all the rage. And messy, loose curls seem to be a must.
Here are the top contenders:
Of course, mine will end up looking somewhere in the middle of all of these, because it never looks like the pictures I bring in. But, whatever. Once I take my angled cut to a blunt one, I’ll likely end up closest to image #3 on bottom left, but I’d like to grow it a little longer into one of the other looks.
