beauty + the blunt cut


We're totally in the time of year where I get super bored with my hair and want to just chop it all off. 

Two years ago in January I made my millionth "big chop," but since then I've been growing it out. It is currently the longest I've ever had it since 7th grade (so almost 10 years), and don't get me wrong, I like it a lot, I just get so bored, so easily. 

So, I've been looking at blunt bob/lob pictures on Pinterest.

I do not like layers. At all. I have too much hair to completely forgo all layers, which is a shame, but the dream would to have a blunt cut. 

More realistically for me, I would have a blunt cut at the ends, with invisible layers throughout to lighten the load. 

The important thing with a blunt cut is to use the correct products so it doesn't triangle out or become a "mom bob." This is a nod to the post I wrote last year, "Beauty + The Cool Girl Bob." Product is everything with a short cut. You want your hair to be thick and messy, but still manageable and definitely not crunchy. 

I love the Oribe Thick Dry Finishing Spray, and obviously the best texturizing product of all time, the Oribe Dry Texturizing Spay. Bumble and Bumble's Un-Dressing Creme was a favorite when I was figuring out how to work with my ultra-short cut a couple of years ago, and a good curling iron to strategically wave out your hair works wonders. 

I've been stalking Anh Co Tran and Kristin Ess' instagrams lately to see if I become particularly inspired. Just makes me want to have an in-house hairstylist. 

Unfortunately for me, whenever I cut my hair, I immediately become focused on growing it out again, and never fully enjoy having it being short and swingy and so easy to manage. Will I actually let temptation take over and cut my hair? We shall see. I'm starting a new job in January so it may be time for new job, new year, new haircut!
