The Long And Short Of It

Recently I have been thinking about cutting my hair into a long bob but I am not sure whether to take the plunge. I am getting tired of my ombre hair and think it would benefit from being cut and given a chance to grow back healthily. My hair is naturally quite wavy and thick and often frizzy so I think maybe a long bob may make my head look rather huge. I used to always have shorter hair but decided to grow it but now I am thinking of getting it cut again.
I would love to hear your advice because I really don't know whether to go through with it.

This is what my hair looks like at the moment:

And this is what it looked like before in a bob:

I do think my hair will look healthier but it will also be thicker as the weight of it won't be pulling it down.
I really would love to know what you think and which look you think is better.

  1. You look gorgeous both ways but I guess bob makes you look younger and cuter. :)

  2. as your hair looks quite thick and wavy (like mine naturally) I wouldn't go too short with it, I would say your hair would look nice with layers or a little bit longer than the bottom picture :) xx


  3. either way looks lovely! but a bob is always a nice change <3

  4. Amazing hair journey! I love what you have now, it really suits you, as well as your hair colour and texture. Lovely locks :) xx

  5. oh my god the short bob on you is AMAZING!! i definitely don't think it's too large- it just looks beautiful and thick. i vote yes for the haircut- do it!

  6. I think it really suits you- you've got quite thick hair so it still looks really full and syled. I'm jealous, your hair is so pretty!

  7. My hair goes crazy thicker when it's short too. I always regret cutting my hair but you look so sweet in the bob! I say go for it. And you will be nice and cool in the hot summer months to come. x

  8. Wow, I love your hair in a bob! It looks really pretty and also brings out the nice shape of your face... not to be weird or nothing, lol. Great post!
