Shall I go for a bob that is short on one side and longer on the other?

Bored, bored bored bored bored, BORED!

I have a bob now - see profile pics if you want, and it's long at the front, short at the back. It's nice, I like, but fancy a change.

So - having a colour (have some grey sneaking in) and it's going to be subtle lowlights underneath in a kind of reddy / purpley colour.

But the cut - I thought, maybe I might try the sort of bob that on one side ends at just under my ear lobe and the other side ends about 6 inches from my ear lobe.

What do you reckon?

would it be like a pob?

Is that style not kind of 80's? I like it as it is now but can appreciate the boredom factor.

Is your dp Scottish?

A woman I know has this, it looks like she holds her head at an angle.

A pob?? LOL!
Is it 80's, I don't know?

He's not scottish no but he originates from there and it was a scottish wedding.

LOL at holding head at angle!

my hairdresser is always on at me to have this

i say no

I had almost exactly as you describe a few years back, looked great but has to be cut all the time. The longer between cuts the worse it looks

Our regional news reporter has that style and well let just say her clothes are not exactly high fashion.

I was going to say no way but having looked at your pictures I think that you are one of the few people that could carry it off!

What about a graduating cut up to the nape of your neck ? Longer at front ?

Thomcat Tue 15-Jul-08 21:25:45

lilyloo -yeah I have that cut now. Had it for ages, hence the need for change.

The fact I'm asking shows I'm unsure, never asked opinions before.

Just need a change.

Maybe I'll get a tattoo instead? wink

Thomcat Tue 15-Jul-08 21:30:28

PMSL - Fucking hell!
Right, that's it, job done, I shall keep the style I have now for ever.

How did you find that / think of that??!!

snice Tue 15-Jul-08 21:30:53

Don't do it unless you arejoining a tribute band

Thomcat Tue 15-Jul-08 21:32:04

snice Tue 15-Jul-08 21:33:24
