Before and after: the haircut edition

I think it all started when I saw Safe Haven earlier this year. I fell in love with Julianne Hough’s haircut, and wondered how it would look on someone with fine hair (unfortunately, mine is not as thick and glorious as her hair – little bit of a girl crush over here…)

Then winter came, banishing any thoughts of cutting my hair shorter. But now the sun is coming out, we’re less than a month away from spring, and I happened to come across this photo of Jessica Alba. With… ‘the lob’, or long bob.

That was it. I saved the photo to my phone, obsessed over it for 2 weeks, and last night I walked myself into my local Just Cuts to get it over with (don’t judge, my hair is so straight and easy that I really can’t justify spending $90!)

So this was me yesterday morning… comfortable hiding behind my mane of long ratty hair.

Haircut before photo - long locks

Followed by me last night, all fresh and funky and in desperate need of some styling tips!

Haircut after photo - the lob!

Do you have any plans for a new do? What do you think of the ‘lob’ (long bob)?

And – most importantly – do you have any styling tips or products I should know about to help me with my new look!?
