Hair ideas? Selfie pics of cut added.

Postby clothmama » Wed Oct 11, 2017 11:23 am

In prep for going back to work I'm going to get my hair done on Monday, going to get highlights to hide the greys. I want to go shorter although not pixie short like I had in Qld (takes too long to grow out). Has anyone seen any styles that they think could look good? I don't want to look like mutton dressed as lamb but part of my issues with feeling frumpy is just putting my hair into a bun every morning!

All ideas welcome!

Hey, wait, what?! Going back to work?!

Can you post a pic of your current style?

I fly out next Saturday for a month in Oz purely to get some hours up. I need to do a minimum of 3 months in every 5 year period in order to keep my registration - it costs about $15,000 (GBP10,000) plus 3 month unpaid work to get it back if you loose it :shock: not prepared to do that - cheaper to head back every year for a month! Luckily my new boss has allowed me to go on the casual pool so I can do it and is giving me shifts so I'm very very lucky really @JabberJabber ! I'm also :panic: - it has been 3 years almost to the day :panic: and with all the iron stuff I'm exhausted so even the thought of the flight has me quaking let alone actually going back to work!

Here I am :hohoho: :hohoho: - my phone is playing up so having trouble so thought I'd have a look through some ideas!
Image
I like the length being all one still so easy to grow out but mine wouldn't look like this as I have really fine hair!
Image

Image
I have been having a longer at the front, shorter up the back bob and I'm a bit bored bored bored. I don't want to go short pixie like I had as that was a nightmare to grow out but thinking about a long short style that will make me want to spend 2 seconds styling it rather than putting it up. Thinking those above type styles might do it?

Maybe too short, not sure if it would work a bit longer or not
Image
Not sure if I'd wish I'd gone a bit more interesting, I think this is just a very slightly shorter version of what I usually start with. Actually I have just realised this is the picture I took to the hairdresser in the UK 2 Christmases ago LOL!
Image
This I actually really like but I have a pretty tiny forehead so not sure how it would work (and hair in my face annoys me :giggle: ):
Image
Too busy?:
Image

Too boring or simple and nice? She isn't as stunning as the other models which I shouldn't even say but does that make a difference to how I feel about the cut :oops: :giggle:
Image
I'm terrible for tucking my hair behind my ears regardless of what the style is supposed to do so this could work as look like it kind of does it!:
Image

Or should I just have my normal angled bob? J just made a big deal of how lovely my hair is when I have it down (never :hohoho: ).

Will try again to upload my pics of current cut if my phone is playing ball!

I'm rubbish at stuff like this which is why mine is pretty much permanently in a mum bun :giggle: :oops: !

I like all those above. Will you want/need to tie it up for work at all?
