My hairstyle has received so much attention in these last few months. It therefore only seemed fair to feature in an exclusive blog post. And after today’s trip to the hairdresser, I thought you would all appreciate a profile of all my sides.
In just under 7 months my hairstyle has gone from asymmetrical pixie to a side shave pixie and now shaving off both sides and the back. Whats in common with all these hairstyles? It’s extremely low maintenance. When it comes to styling, I wet it, comb it down and voila! As a busy mum that’s really something to love.
If you were to look back at all my hairstyles in the last several decades you’d see quite the hair evolution. The changes don’t come from the fact that I’m brave or don’t hair too much for my hair. Quite the opposite in fact. My hairstyles form part of my creative outlet and the confidence comes from knowing that my hair will grow back.
Although I’ve been mistaken for a man amongst other stereotypes, I love short hair and the fact that it doesn’t make me your average looking girl.
If you are reading my blog for the first time, I am proud to make mention that I haven’t purchased a single item of clothing for Moi since 1 January this year. Everything I’ve worn this year thus far are items I already own. There are clothes I have had for years and some that I purchased and just never bothered to touch. Now each day I become more fond of what I have and less of a need to indulge in compulsive consumerism. I am completely amazed at how I have managed to kick such an addictive habit.
So what’s new on the blog?! My hair! Truth be told, I made an attempt last week to do it myself and it didn’t turn out so well. So I have waited a week for it to grow out and slipped in to the hair salon today to get it done properly. When I arrived home and showed my husband, he got the shock of his life and then figured he would eventually get used to it.
In terms of styling, this hairstyle does come with a price. The cut is edgy and not so feminine therefore the clothes I have chosen to wear today are fine however, I am unsure how I would look in pretty floral dress or my work wear for instance. Speaking of work wear, fingers crossed my colleagues do not find this cut too inappropriate for the work place.
In the coming weeks, days and months, I am looking forward to all the new looks I can bring with this new hairstyle. Its the new me and I hope you will enjoy what’s to come.
Thanks for reading and hope you all have an ah-mazing weekend.
