Restlessness and Hair.

At this present moment in time (the time being the 3rd of July 2013), I am feeling a certain sense of restlessness when I start thinking about my hair. Call me vain and superficial all you want, but it's on my head 24/7, so technically I can't help it. Since about Grade 3 though, I have, every five years or so, a moment of impulsiveness and I kid you not, I cut all my hair off. Now, when I say 'cut all my hair off,' I don't mean like Emma-Watson-cut-all-my-hair-off. What I mean, is I-cut-a-significant-portion-of-my-quite-long-hair-off. I've come to fondly regard this as my personal 'five year itch.'

And guess what? The bug is itching again, because surprise surprise - it's been about five years since the last time I had shorter hair. I don't know if I'll go through with it (but let's be real - I probably will), however in case I do, I have started collecting pictures of haircuts I appreciate and am considering.

Seeing as I've never been particularly good at making decisions (also, I'm not a hairstylist), I thought that it may help me if I got your guys's opinions on them. Alas, go forth and conquer!

(a quiet note here: i'm not changing my hair colour - it's just my hair cut)

1. Ashley Benson - Mid Length
I dunno, I'm just really been digging Ashley Benson's hair recently. I think this haircut is a good length and it doesn't have a complete middle parting (which is something I feel I don't suit). Plus, it looks like it's long enough to put in a pony tail, which would be helpful. It also looks like it may have layers and I heart my hair with layers, so yea. I have another one of her haircuts at a slightly shorter length a little bit down, too.
yay or nay?

2. Carey Mulligan
I quite like this. I mean, honestly it seems quite similar to the Ashley Benson one above, so I don't know if that's why, but yea. It looks like there aren't many (if any) layers, and I don't really know how I feel about it. It seems a bit thicker than the first one, but I don't know whether that's because of how it's styled, or not. The other small problem is that it's centre parted, and like I mentioned above, I don't think I suit a centre parting.
yay or nay?

3. Keira Knightley
This one seems a bit longer than the other two. This would be kinda good if I decide I don't like my hair shorter. Plus, it's got the side parting (so check!) and it's got a side fringe as well. That could be fun. The last time I had a fringe was probably three or four years ago. Can't really tell if there's any layers or not though.
yay or nay?

4. Ashley Benson - Shorter Length
See? Told you she'd make another appearance! I like this one because it seems like it's only a teensy bit shorter and the side parting is a bit more to my tastes. It looks like there may be a few layers in there too, so that's nice as well. I don't know if that's a little too short though. If possible, I think I'd prefer my hair to be long enough to put up, I think, and I can't really tell whether or not that's just her hair's actual length or if it's been put up to look that way.
yay or nay?

5. Karen Gillan
Karen Gillan got a haircut! OMG! I really like it though. Like, it's really, really nice. Good choice, A+ Kazza. (Also, sorry. This is the best photo I could find of it). She's styled it so it's a centre part, but I reckon if I got a full fringe, I could pull it off. It's looks a little sixties, to be honest, but I'm ok with that because the 60's are cool. Looks like a good length, but I can't tell about layers.
yay or nay?
edit: so it turns out this was probably a wig. that's a little awkies.

So, they're the haircuts I'm thinking of. To be honest, I'm leaning towards one of the Ashley Benson cuts (probably the mid-length one, to be more specific). I dunno, I just really like the way they're styled. 

Which ones do you think would suit? 

I'm so terrible with these things, so I really don't know how it'd look.


  1. I love this blog post, it's the kind of thing I like to talk about with my girlfriends :)) I definitely think the Ashley Benson - Mid Length would you suit you best and it's the safest bet, but I do believe that you can also pull off her Shorter Length.
    I have a thing for layers as well, they make my hair ridiculously wavy!
