hair cut idea

i need a change big time. i am thinking about cutting my long hair into a pixie cut. why not? i could do it. why am i holding onto this long hair? because it took so long to grow it out? it's sort of a good reason but also a ridiculous one because i could use it forever and waste my pixie cut years away. i think now is the time. well, next week. i have to do some research about where to get it done. i am just so sick of blow drying and straightening my super long hair. and it's wavy so i have to put all of this work into it, otherwise it is a big, poufy, half-wavy crazy mess of hair. also, it's hard when you have bangs to come up with a new style, unless it's shorter. the more i think about it the more i like it.

it's thursday already? when you are living the life of leisure like me all the days blend into each other. today i am going to go swimming or do a pilates video, and go shopping. i really shouldn't be shopping but i need to "get out" if you know what i mean. there are only so many things a girl can do around the house before going crazy. i am downloading season one of heroes (i've seen some of season two on tv) but it's taking forever. i also have to finish my latest book club book. it's "a complicated kindness" by miriam toews.

it's a really good read but hard to read all at once because the plot is very loose. it's more like a bunch of ideas centering around a central thought.

I think a pixie would work well on you but I have to say I think you're very courageous to go for it! I have uncontrolable wavy/curly hair that is even worse when it's short so the thought of a shorter cut always makes me 'uncomfortable'... But you know what - it grows back...

It will be cool to take so little time to style it!! :)

In case it's helpful: Someone who has very nice 'shorter' hair at work recommended Leeza at Coupe Bizarre (Queen/Niagara) - I need a haircut too, maybe I'll test her out and let you know about it! :)

I love and am scared of the idea of a pixie cut!! It is a gutsy move and one I think you could pull off!

I loved that book. It isn't a read in one sitting book but it is still a great one!

Pixie or a cute chin-length angled bob would look fantastic on you, especially with those gorgeous bangs of yours. Can't wait to see it!

I definately think a pixie cut would look fantastic on you. You can always do it in phases too - like cut it half way now then go all the pixie way in 2 weeks or so. Then again, that's a lot of time and money spent at the salon. Just go for it!

I think a pixie cut would look AMAZING on you! Do it! I have to blow my hair out everytime I wear it down, and it gets really annoying.
