Hair Today...Gone Tomorrow....

Hairstyles and fashion are a thing of complexity. There are oh-so-many rights and there are oh-so-many dead wrongs, but what I've learned over the years is that it might not be a wholistic thing. Although teased bangs as a whole are horrible, the perm might work for someone although it was a disaster for me. Just like gladiator sandals might be darling on you but they are a big H-to-the-no for me. I spent the better part of my youth chasing something I couldn't have. Maybe it was because there was no Chi at the time (and computers had just started making their way into every household....I know, it was basically primitive. I'll be something of a caveman to my children...) but quite possibly it was because I was trying to fit a square peg in a round hole. I'm something of a Monica but I was trying to be a Meg.

You may think I'm kidding, but all of my friends will tell you that every time I went to get my haircut I was armed with a picture from Meg's latest flick. I spent 2 years trying to achieve "You've Got Mail" Meg. And as a result I hate just about every photo from college! ha!

So now, I'm seeking advice from you dear readers. My family has differing opinions so I figured I would put it to a vote. I'm about to inundate you with photos from the past 3 years. My hair grows VERY fast, so in 3 years I've been shorty-short, LONG, in between, short again, etc. I've had bobs, layers, bangs (but I always had longer bangs swept to the side) and I just can't decide where to go next, but I know I need to go somewhere! It's time for a change.

My hair is getting long again and I either need to style it up with some layers and let it grow, or cut it again. But how short? The pictures below are in sequential order of the past 3 years. There are some things in these photos I'm not proud of. There are eyebrows that would make the ladies at my nail place cringe. There is an outfit or two that my friends should be ashamed they didn't warn me about. I'll take that up with them personally. And I must shamefully point out my weight gain. Because the short bob might not be the way to go with my more "full-figured" face. Y'all weigh in. Short or long? Layers or no? And tell me which picture you prefer because I've had several different stylists. (I'm the queen of inexpensive cuts. A few of these came from salons and were a bit pricey but the majority of my cuts have been $20 or less!! Don't judge....I'm actually pretty proud of my very high maintenace hair at low maintenance prices:)

Cast your vote! And thank you!

I love this post! How fun! My fav is the firat picture with the bob. It is adorable! I love it. You are lovely though, so whatever you do you can't go wrong. Goodluck.

Jessica said...

how in the world are we supposed to pick!? Your hair looks cute in every single picture!!

I think I like it cut short in a bob or a little longer, like in your friends wedding the best, but that is only because you are making me pick!!

Amy said...

I think it's cute longer with some layers, Tiffany! The photo of you and V-Rog at what looks like (and is most likely) a baseball game is a cute style for you.

Kristen said...

I love your hair in the second picture (and the first) You look great with a bob!

Sonja said...

I love the shoulder length with waves!

Very pretty and classy! xo

Liz said...

Reamsies wedding pic is my DEF fave. Not that you're not ALWAYS adorbs... but I like it with some length and a few layers. But like a little below shoulder... not way long.

Leah said...

I like picture 4 and 5. I agree with Liz...a little length and some layers but not super long.

You know, you could always get you some Jessica Simpson clip in extensions and then you can have all the looks you like whenever you want them! That would be a great blog post! :)

All you need is love... said...

I like your hair when it is hitting your shoulders, and is flipping out a tad. Like pic #4

Jamie Pickle said...

Your hair looks great in all these!! I think I like it best at shouler length with layers and side swept bangs. The pic with you and the bride is my fav.

Emily said...

Shoulder length!! Are you a Red Raider?! Guns up!

Susannah said...

I LOVE the third picture bob! Love it! So sleek!! My other favorite is the longer one where you are with the bride. Both are super cute! I am in the same rut right now, but I don't know what I want to do. I do know that it needs to be MAJOR low on styling cause that just doesn't happen EVER now that momma needs to sleep til 5:45!

Emily said...

How funny! I am a Red Raider and my husband is an Aggie. We have a flag that is half Tech and half A&M in the front yard. Gotta love football season :)

And, that episode of Friends is one of my favorites. "It's the humidity!!!!"

Katie said...

i'm gonna jump on the band wagon and go with the pic of you at your friend's wedding, although i think anyone that can rock a bob (or short hairstyle) def should, and you, my dear, can. but i do love the shoulder length pic. so not that i have you royally confused, good luck!!!

Red High Heels said...

I think you look wonderful with it at mid-length. The wedding picture is my FAV!!

MissBrightside said...

I like a little longer with layers...very soft and pretty!

tootie said...

Your hair looks cute in all of them - seriously! But if I had to pick favorites, I liked the length/style in pictures #5 and #6.

Good luck deciding!

Elicia said...

I like it best in front of the Christmas tree! :)

Carol {Everyday Delights} said...

I like the Christmas tree one! I think after my wedding I am chopping off my hair!

Joyce said...

I love the christmas tree one, and also short hair int he blue dress :)

Annie said...

Gosh....it looks really nice in all of them. I think that my fav is the wedding pic one. I like the bangs swooped to the side like that.....but I guess you could do that with even a shorter cut if your wanted to!!

Good luck :)
