A Summer Snip

When you have shorter hair it can be easy to forget the difference a cut can make. Mine has been getting into the realm of slightly too long for the past few weeks and the need for a snip was becoming more apparent day by day. As my tresses have a tendency to go dry and frizzy at the ends, keeping up with regular trims helps to maintain the condition of my hair alongside removing any pesky split ends that have reared their heads. With this trip to the hairdressers I went back to the same salon that coloured my hair a few weeks ago, different stylist however their cheap rates are too good not to take advantage of.

After a consultation we decided to take just over an inch off in length so as to neaten everything up, I was also recommended that I straighten off the back of my hair to make it neater. As you can see above the style now sits all at one length as opposed to being shorter at the sides. I’ve found that by squaring off the cut my hair looks thicker, more healthy and it prevents sections from misbehaving too much. Overall I am really happy with the cut and although it’s nothing groundbreaking, it does feel so much lighter and also looks more healthy. One added bonus is that it prevents my hair from acting too much like a helmet and trapping in all the heat on a warm summers day! Cooler hair for the win ;)

  • It’s gorgeous!
    I love a slightly longer bob that sweeps the shoulders for summer, I really should go get a hair cut too.

  • Oh I wish I could get away with a short bob! Must be so much easier to style!!

  • This haircut is so cute! I’d love to go short but last time I did it was an absolute disaster! I do love the choppy bobs that are around at the minute – I haven’t seen a bad one yet! I especially love them with a little ombre and tonnes of texture :)

    • Thank you :) Am hopping that I can keep the condition of it looking healthy so it looks nice and neat!xx

  • I love the short cut on you!

  • Your hair is gorgeous, looks so healthy! I love shorter hair, but I’m always too scared to do it myself

    • You are too kind! I am surprised I went so short but sometimes you just gotta bite the bullet!xx

  • I’ve been wanting to go shorter too but I’m just too nervous! :-) The cut really suits you though :-)


  • I love it! Really suits you :) I got my hair chopped off last year and now I couldn’t ever go back to having long hair, it suits me much more and looks much healthier. Yay for shorter locks!

    • Eek thank you lovely! I don’t know if I could ever go back to long either! I do look at pictures and sometimes miss it but having shorter locks is so much easier :) xx

  • Really pretty, the cut really suits you and your hair color is absolutely perfect!
