If you know me but at all, then you’ll know that I am the most indecisive person IN THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE. Not world. Universe. Lately, I’ve been longing for a bit of a ‘change’, and what better way for a brand new you, than a haircut?

However, let it be known that I am not one for small measures. I would never really consider just taking a few centimetres off. I’m an all or nothing kinda gal.

So, my question to you, dear readers, is this: should I cut my hair into a short, messy bob?

This is the current length of my hair:


And this is the look I’m thinking of going for:


I’m so confused, and I don’t know what is giving me doubts. Some friends tell me, “Absolutely, yes! Do it!” Others say, “No, don’t even think of touching your hair!“. I’d love some extra outsider opinion here – so just click your vote down below!

As a side note for the super practical people asking a ton of questions: I have had short hair before so I know it suits me – that’s not a concern. <boast>Also, I have an oval face shape and apparently that’s the best face shape for all hairstyles. </boast> I am not a morning person, so I am slightly concerned about needing to spend extra time every day styling my hair. I currently do nothing with my hair. It’s always in a top knot or ponytail. Occasionally, if I go out somewhere nice, I’ll maybe do something like curl it but that’s about it. I have very thin, fine hair (similar to Estee up above).

So, give me your vote!

Thanks guys!




P.S. How freaking gorgeous is Estee?! <3

  1. Do it, own it, love it.

    Bob’s can look damn good, as can unnatural hair colouring, knots are also good, but seems you have done that. (Unfortunately, you know, work appearance.) Women have way more options for hair styles, so take advantage! (Personally, I have yet to see a really short hair style on a women that I liked, but I’m just a single biased guy.)

    If you find yourself wanting to grow your hair again, then do yourself a favour and don’t feather, or layer, your hair while growing it out. Men often skip on trimming, or cutting, for years and then end up with a wreck of split ends and a tangled mess, and women seem intent on layering/feathering/styling when growing their hair and land up thinking their hair grows exceptionally slowly, and thinly. Some are unlucky and actually do have slow growing, thin hair though, or men who go bald early. :(

  2. Go for it! I might not go as short as Estee’s cut – but shorter will suit you so so well. Plus I’m jealous, since I can’t have shorter hair… too much of curl.

  3. My only question is how well does your hair hold a style? How much time are you willing to put in doing the curls and the texturising spray, and the watching of they Youtube tutorials when yours doesn’t look as put-together?

    • That’s one of the things I’m questioning. I’m a very low-maintenance kinda girl, I do enjoy the ‘get up and go’ kinda look. I have watched a couple tutorials, so I have an idea of how to do it. But to be honest, it would be trial and error in the beginning to see if I can recreate it. I used to have a sleek, slightly longer bob and I manged that just fine (it was a long time ago though, so I can’t recall how I felt 100%).

  4. I would say cut it into a longer bob that you can then tie up on the days you don’t feel like doing anything, but it’s still short enough to be a change. Best of both worlds!

  5. My hair is a similar length to yours and I have not done anything with it in about 8 months. I am booked to go and have a cute in 2 weeks. I can’t wait. I am opting for a Long bob or LOB. I don’t have thick hair and I always have to take the fine hair I have into account when choosing a style. The pics always look so great but my hair doesn’t always end up looking remotely like the style I choose. A LOB is a big winner.
