I didn’t plan to grow my hair this spring but it was actually pretty long at the beginning of summer this year, which was ok with me until the hot weather hit us a few weeks ago and I just couldn’t stand it. I have thick oily hair which takes ages to dry and is also very heavy and the only positive side of having long hair I could find was being able to style it in a lot of different ways – but considering that I only place them in a ponytail or a bun, I had no excuses. Also I chop my hair quite often and I’m pretty used to shorter hair length which is totally fine with me, however I can’t remember the last time I chopped it this short.
As you can see and imagine I’ve chopped my hair recently, around 5 inches fell on the floor, but I was super ready to say them goodbye. I love how shorter hair looks, it is a lot more lightweight and fresh for summertime and my plain hair can actually look a bit more alive and messy without all the weight that made it so flat and not voluminous at all. Not that now it looks amazing on its own, but it’s a lot better and I can style it a lot more easily and it dries quicker too which is always a plus in summertime. But what is not an understatement is that I always chop it myself (with my mum’s precious help) and being that I have no big expectations and I just want my hair to have the same length all around, it’s pretty easy. The trick is to get some good hair scissors like these and forgetting about using some classic all purposes scissors which won’t give a precise cut, simply decide the lenght and cut the first piece, then follow the line you just cutted for the rest of your hair. I ask my mum to help with the back which is a bit more tricky, but for the rest is just as simple as that and I just prefer cutting my hair myself on a regular basis instead of talking to an hairdresser, which not only is too expensive, but sometimes won’t get what you really desire and I always end up being dissatisfied about something.
Are you thinking of chopping your hair for summertime?
