I'm pretty traditional when it comes to haircuts. No pixies, edgy cuts, or extreme color for me—quite the opposite, actually. I'm a soft curls, fuss-free sort of hair girl, and my dream 'do is much like Rosie sports below.
So, in preparation for next week's appointment, I've been testing out my friends' reactions to these cuts I've stumbled across during the winter. For spring, I'm thinking about giving a few inches the chop and getting rid of my long waves in leu of something a little different. However, the new cut must adhere strictly to my "don't spend longer than ten minutes on my hair" policy—low maintenance and relatively fuss-free is key here people.
This option keeps most of my length (I'm known to freak out when I go to short) but adds some face-framing layers that would be easy to style when on the fly. I like to think of this as the safe option, as it can still be styled many different ways.
Jessica Alba's cut is so stinkin cute here. But I have so many questions: Can I wear a middle part (most signs point to no), will hair above my shoulders make my shoulders appear broader and most importantly will it make me look like Jessica Alba?
So here she is again with a slightly longer version. I said I wanted to get rid of waves, but I like them with these short alternatives.
Also up for consideration is somewhere in the middle. Olivia P, my idol, also consistently hits the mark with a good mid-length hairstyle.
Help a sister out.
