You might know some of these gals...and some you might not recognize. That's ok...I'm just searching for hairstyles for medium hair lengths and some of these came up. I think I prefer bangs...yet there weren't too many with bangs in the pictures that I looked at. And then again...not a one of them is old, chubby or wearing glasses! Tee Hee Don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to be a glamor girl...just trying to do the best with what I have! (:>)
I usually wear my hair really short, but a year ago I started growing it out...just because I wanted a different look. But it takes so long to get it long enough to do much with it, and so I have been tempted to just cut it short again.
I think it is really feminine to have longer hair. But on the other hand it takes so much longer to dry it and style it.
I look at these styles and think I like them...but of course they wouldn't look the same on a mature woman like me. I have been pulling it up and using clips and just curling the bangs and the stray tendrils... and that's pretty easy.
But if I just want to wear it down and casual it just never looks like I want it to look.
I used to have thick hair and if that were still the case I would LOVE to wear it like this! (And I like the color of the weaving here too.)
Do you all ever just wish you could do your hair different? I am so much wanting to either find a style that works for me...or I know I am going to cave and just get it cut off again. And that seems silly after going through more than a year with the growing out process only to cut it off! Ugh!
One friend says I should do it dark again...but I was getting so much gray I didn't want to have to color it once a month so I just got a lighter weave to blend in the gray. See all the gray in my dark hair?
And here it is really short! Like I have worn it for so many years.
This is me today as I head out to do my final Christmas shopping. See, nothing special...just kind of blah! (:>) I keep thinking I should just keep growing it a few more inches and then get some layers put in it. But then comes the question of color. Darker? (I have always heard that when you get older you shouldn't go darker because it can make you look harsh) Or more highlights? (But is going lighter much different than just letting it go gray naturally?) Sheesh...it's hard to be a girl! Ha (That is funny....a 60 year old calling herself a girl!)
I'm not really sure what I will do...and even when I do try something different it never looks like the pictures. Ha! Does this happen to you too?
