How Short?

In truth, my hair currently is too long for my preferences. No, that doesnt mean its halfway down my back, or more, but its well below the bottom of my neck, which in my ‘vintage’ eyes, is way too long! What happened, you ask? Simple, I tried to grow it out for last September, and the wedding, because I thought I needed it a bit longer than the back of the top of the neck, or just below, which is my norm. It did get trimmed in November, in truth, but my hairdresser took off about the normal amount, so it was about my normal ‘just before cut’ length, rather than its normal level.

Lets just say I’m the low maintenance type, so keeping my hair in a respectable mane, at this length, not so good. Anyway, looking at the March calendar, it now seems that I have 2 20’s related events coming up in quick succession. And yes, what does that mean, in a hair sense? Yes, the bob!

No, I’m not thinking anything too drastic, a la Louise Brooks version, far too boyish in style, and lets face it, the last thing I want to look is boyish, lol! But a slightly less dramatic bob, why not? Sadly, with my hairline, I have no chance of getting anything even vaguely resembling the Brooks bangs, or the helmet fringe, only wish I could! But a longer bob, without the dramatic bangs, at least I’ll look the part, if not the age. Lets face it, those flappers were young, in their twenties at most, and one of those events is on my 60th Birthday! So fine, unless someone can make me look a whole lot younger, lol…? And yes, the dress will be the one in the last blog, not one that will be above my knees!

So yes, big question, just how short do I dare go, without the boyish looks issues, both length, and volume? And yes, I am staying blonde! Perfectly natural, oh I wish!

But yes, if I’m going to do this 20’s thing seriously, for 2 lovely events, I need a bob cut… just how much of a cut?

Fine, video time. Lets just say its someone asking the opposite question, and leave it there!

How long?

No, I’m not talking about the length of my hair, post cut, though if you really want to know, its about shoulder length, and apart from the front (grr), its doing its best to resemble a long bob style lol! The front, well, I’ve got a fringe, and lets leave it at that! And no, no one here has commented since their return today, but I’ll put that down to their long day travelling back from Cyprus. The cats can now get back to their normal feeding, and begging arrangements until the next time lol! I think one of them still doesnt believe my food is for me, not for him!

In that case, it has to be, yes, you’ve guessed it, the work shift tomorrow! Lets see, I start at 9.00, ends at 9.00, and the shift is longer than one minute lol! Thats right, 12 hours! Even worse when you think I’ll get home about 10.30, get to bed somewhere after midnight (going to have tons to catch up on, internet wise), and then be up by 6 the next morning to start work at 9.00. No, not another 12 hour shift, but all the same… Coffee might be a critical ingredient by then lol!

Thankfully Euro 2012 takes a break tomorrow, before the quarter finals start, but all that means is that the shops will be ringing up for prices on the Icelandic 3rd division, and any other games desperate punters find to lose money on, in leagues that no one with any sense would take a second glance at. But anyway… Oh, and the second day of Royal Ascot to keep up with as well!

Its funny, it used to be we would get 5, 7.5 hour shifts in a week, and that would be it. Nowadays a 7.5 hour shift is a rarity, though I have got a couple at the weekend! Yes, they do get countered back, its why I’ve got 5 hour shifts Thursday and Friday, but I suspect that wont be much consolation tomorrow evening!

So no, dont expect a blog tomorrow lol! 😛

The video, well some might say that in a sense the title is a dry comment about tomorrow

Oh, and I only wish my hair looked like this!
