Chopped. - Pretty Real


3:54 PM

I needed a change.  Kind of like this time.  Except this time I wanted it to be obvious that I got my hair cut.  (Last time I chose picture 5 and no one (except my dear co-author Megan) even noticed)! I wanted something edgy and cool.  Most likely because I am not edgy, nor am I cool.  But I can fake it right?  I'm also not modeling anymore--so I didn't have to worry about being "commercial." And I'm also not getting any younger.  So I thought I should embrace something fresh while I'm still young.  And it resulted in this.

What do you think?  The picture doesn't translate it perfectly. It's a little more "piece-y" in person.  I like it.  I sort of chickened out and didn't go quite as short as I wanted.  Take a look at my inspiration pictures at the end of the post...and tell me--do you think I should go even shorter next time?!  My stylist (who knows me well and whom I love) advised me to "live with this" for a little bit first.  Great advice.  My major concern was maintenance.  I don't have time to spend a half hour on my hair in the morning!  So I'm going to see what the maintenance is like on this and how it looks as it grows out before I go even shorter...

In the first photo I've tucked the long piece behind my ear. In this one I left it out. (Oh and a con against short hair/no bangs-- I actually have to tweeze my eyebrows on a regular basis.  Can you tell how crazy they are in this photo?!)

Side views--looks a little Carol Brady in the top shot but I think it's just the angle. Speaking of the top photo, I've recently discovered that unsightly dark spot near my chin/lip. Any suggestions for a product I can use to lighten that?  ew!

And here was my inspiration:

I liked this but not so heavy...

I was VERY tempted to go with this...maybe next time?

Totally wasn't ready to shave my head. 

Of course this one would have been the most work...but I LOVE it.  Another issue- my hair texture is nothing like Halle's so I wasn't sure how it would translate.

Ok, spill- what would you change about your hair if you could?  And what beauty product will erase that gross dark spot on my chin?
