Have had a hair disaster - went last week to my normal hairdresser (cheap and cheerful) and he cut a shortish layer in my hair and because I didn't want to lose the length just trimmed the back - the layer wasn't blended and I looked like a 70s male rock star.
Next day I cut the long bit off and now have chin length bob with long fringe swept to the side(uneven at the back) with a bit of layering.
Im going tomorrow to another recommended hairdresser to have it tidied up and hopefully just more stylish looking. I will be growing it again as I do feel rather frumpy with this shorter cut (rightly or wrongly I liked my hair a bit longer).
I don't want a 'try too hard cut' as I think this looks silly on a middle aged woman. But do want something quite edgy and not helmet looking IYWIM.
I also want to have some ideas so that Im not persuaded to go even shorter.
The only good thing to come out of this is that my hair does look healthier as the ends have been cut off.
Perhaps I'll post a photo later of what it looks like now.
