Which Hair Do I Dare??

Alright. I'm getting my hair cut. It's been forever. It's crazy long. I'm not one of those people who gets their hair cut every 6 weeks. I go months. Many, many, months. It is a requirement for my job to wear my hair up everyday (aka look like a scrub)....so there is no real reason for me to do anything to it during the week. Honestly, it is a rarity even on the weekends if I do anything to it. I straighten it if we have plans...but other than that, it's pony tail city. I need a change people!

So here are some ideas I am considering:

As you can see, I am leaning towards a short-ish bob...maybe with some sweeping bangs. I haven't had bangs since I would say...hm...I was 5...so this is admittedly freaking me out a little. It took me years to grow them out and it was NOT fun. But, I'm thinking with the sweeping ones, they would still be fairly long so it wouldn't be as drastic.

So help! Do any of you have this hair cut? Likes or dislikes? Bangs or no bangs? Eek! I think I just need to take the plunge! And maybe throw in a pedicure while I'm there :)

I LOVE the last one with Jenny McCarthy. I think that would look really cute on you!!

I keep my hair pretty short and in more of a bob style. I had the longer side swept bangs for a while, but if you need to have you hair up for work keep in mind they don't always go back well and that if you don't take the time to style them each day they look like crap.

I would probably go with the style Jennifer Aniston has and see how much you really do your hair. If you do it a lot then maybe for the next step do bangs.

My hair is right at/above my shoulders. If you have to wear your hair up every day don't go shorter than that and be careful how short you do bangs/ angles because they won't fit into a ponytail! I use bobby pins but it's be a pain every single day!!

They are all so cute! I got the same kind of hair cut at the beginning of summer....this is the picture I used!

i love the second nicole richie pic.

Shaina said...

Yes yes yes! I love the Nicole Richie haircut. I am actually kind of growing mine out a bit and I'd like to have something like that. I think you should totally take the plunge with some bangs...if you don't, I'm guessing you'll be thinking about them for forever. I know I do. :)

Dollface said...

I wish i would have enough guts to do that to my hair!! I would choose the Jennifer Aniston one, but Nicole Richie's is pretty cute too... please take the plunge so I can live vicariously through you!! xxxooo

PinkSass said...

Love love the Nicole Richie haircut! I've tried to have sweeping bangs and had to give up since my hair just wouldn't corporate with me! Too much work! I'm growing mine out now and then probably in a few months I will want sweeping bangs again! ha!

Kristen said...

love the 2nd picture! Good luck to whatever you choose. Hair change scares me! lol

Heather said...

Love Nicole Riches cut. I love her too. I think it would look great on you.

Brittany Ann said...

I don't have bangs (not a good look for curly girls) but I do have that length! And I love it. I'm voting Jenny McCarthy, seeing as you all share a name, why not a hairstyle?

Sonja said...

ooooh im excited for you! I love playing with hair changes :)

Right after the wedding in 08 I cut all my hair off and did the Nicole Richie! but I threw in some Kristin Cavalarri! It was cute!

I love the cuts you have picked out! Can't wait to see!! ;)

Ashley said...

the nicole richie and jenny mccarthy pics are the ones i always went to when i was i was contemplating cutting my hair into a bob.... love them both!!

Jacqueline Smith said...

2nd nicole richie!!!!
love it!!!!!!!!

Kassie said...

I love the look with the sideswept bangs!! That way, even if you wear your hair up, you can still look a bit put together.

I took the second picture of Nicole Richie in when I cut my hair into a bob...I loved it! It was easy to manage and very cute :)

Newlywed Next Door said...

Do the sweeping bangs! You won't regret it. I love the 2nd pic of Nicole Richie. Are you going to do any color in your hair or just a cut?

Lindsey said...

LOVE them all, but I chose #2!

THE Stephanie said...

They're all super cute, and mostly the same style. The sweepy bangs are really in and super easy to style!! All you need is a flat brush and a hair dryer and you're done!

Super, super cute!!

New England Girl said...

I think Nicole Richie's style would look amazing on you! But really, any of them will be so so adorable. I usually don't touch my hair, 'cause it is fine and it can't hold a style anyways! I'll live vicariously through you. Can't wait to see what you decide! :)

Annie said...

i love nicole richie's hair and just her style n her in general ;)

i think you will look adorable with any of these short styles!!

That's what my hair looks like when I wear it pin straight. Or, I can give it body, curl up the bottoms and have a retro-60s look. I LOVE this cut. You'd look awesome in it.

Dreams2009 said...

Love the Nicole Richie's Hair cut. I'm thinking about doing that myself as well! :)But I know how you feel, I'm thinking of dying my hair and I haven't for 2 years so it's so hard to change. Haircuts are fun, so have fun with it!

Abbie said...

Although all of the hairstyles are pretty similar, I really like Nicole Richie's! It's short enough to be sassy but still long enough to pull half back! Very cute!

Nessa said...

Oooo, do it, do it!! ;)

..and yes i did attempt a bob with sweeping bangs in order to "reinvent" myself after a tough year.......

....
...
i have VERY curly hair.
BIG mistake.
Lesson learned.

But you? Should do it!;)


p.s.sorry for the essay.

Naturally Caffeinated Family said...

I think I used the Nicole richie (2nd pic) when i was trying to decide what to do with my hair a while back=)!! Love it! I do like Jenny M's too=) They'll look great! Can't wait to see =)

Lucy Marie said...

I'm partial to the last photo. I'm getting my hair cut on the weekend .. I'm going to do something quite different I think. Maybe. We'll see.

I was contemplating side-swept bangs and a friend of mine gave me some advice "Don't do it". I sadly ignored her advice and spent a long, long time hating my bangs while they grew out. They were fun for awhile, but then they just became a nuisance!

Kerree said...

I took that first pic of Nicole Ritchie into the hairdressers about 3 weeks ago and I have now discovered that I look absolutely horrible with sweeping bangs! I hate it! I have gone into hibernation until it grows out. It might look better on you though :)

emily said...

Love them all and I have hair similiar to this...shorter in the back and longer in the front and I love it! The sexy side bangs (that's what my hairdresser calls them) makes you look younger and I have them...they took some time to get used to, but now I cannot imagine not having bangs!
