This is me ((brave)) hair is not dyed. Some layers, about 2" longer than bra strap at the back. It hangs around my face and is boring me sensleless.

I do however like that I can straighten it, curl it, tie it back, I'm lucky that it only needs washing twice a week.

I want a change!

These are my current 3 pics. Style of blonde on but not colour... colour of the other 2. Possibly.

I have a similar problem. I'm considering something like this...

I like the 2nd one, it's modern and a fresher, younger style.
I think it will really suit your face...

Mind you long hair pisses me off too much so I might not be the best judgewink

Here is a bit of Jennifer Lawrence styling inspiration...

Colour of first one is great. I have very similar style as your 2nd saved to my hair ideas Pinterest! Have you thought about a fringe as well to add a bit of interest?

That's a great article abc. Total hair skills envy though. I'd never be able to manage any of them. smile

I've never ever had a fringe Tom. Not even as a kid. I'd be too scared!

It wouldn't have to be a straight across heavy fringe, you can get longer side fringes although there's a bit more upkeep involved.

If I had your hair, I would be happy forever <not helpful> grin

Me too!envy

Thank you ((blush))

To be honest I do love my hair, it's just so thick and hangy sometimes it's annoying. I haven't done anything with it for 7 years (had to be really short) and am just a bit bored.

My mum constantly tells me I'm too old for long hair hmm

Your hair is my dream hair! I wouldn't touch it. I like your lorry and tractor pics! 😆

Haha yes should have really cropped them out. smile

Your hair look healthy and have good length. If you are boring I would recommend change color. Your skin tone is warm so you will be suit yellow, peach, or red undertones Check ideas with different colors and will demonstrate it your hairdresser.
Not trime . Messy buns are great, any kind of braid, ponytails. You can also do where you french twist the front of your hair across

Your hair is amazing! It makes me sad when people with lovely hair cut it off but just because I'm jealous...

I'm not one for radical hair changes, so personally if I was unhappy I'd just have a bit of the length taken off which means you can bring your layers shorter and so have a bit more shape and movement round your face.

I think that's probably why I'm so bored. I'm useless at styling it...I'd love to be able to plait it and stuff... thankfully I have a ds or I'd be just as useless! Maybe YouTube tutorials when I've got a spare hour..
