My hair has suddenly got to that stage where it's just hanging there looking awful. It's quite long. Layered a good while ago, now it's just messy.

for many years I had a long sort of shoulder lenght bob

I am SOOOO tempted to get DH to do it right now. Would I be unreasonable? Would my haircut be? grin btw he is NOT a hairdresser grin

DH has cut my hair for the past 20 years (and no, he's not a hairdresser). he does a mean bob, then I let it grow out to shoulder length, then he cuts it again.
Depends if you trust your DH to cut it sensibly, and if you can be guaranteed to not fall out with him if it doesn't look like how you imagined it would wink.
Wouldn't let my DH do anything other than cut in a straight line though.

Will up-date grin

My dh used to cut mine in a straight bob when we were skint. It looked fine, but he's a v. careful, deliberate sort of person. I wouldn't trust anyone to do it who wasn't going to try really hard and take their time.

if you really are going through with this (and I'm not advocating it or anything), make him start with just taking a little bit off, in case he can't cut straight, and you end up lopsided and need to straighten it up yourself. It can always be cut shorter. [worried]

He's done it!

I am really pleased!

It actually looks quite glam!!!!


I really couldn't be more pleased if I'd paid 40 quid at the hairdressers for this.....good old dh eh
