Hello, Bob

No, sadly, Bob is not the name of my latest flame  —meet my new hair. If you’re an Instagram follower, you may have seen my (rather awkward) selfie of me donning a new ‘do. This is by far the most ‘exotic’ I’ve gone with my hair and most probably the shortest I’ve ever had my hair since I was 4. I do love my long hair and a hairdresser once told me I’ve got a face for it (whatever that means), but it was starting to get really limp and flat —making me itch for something different.

L’Oréal True Match Foundation in W3 mixed with Clarins Ever Matte in 108 Sand, RMS Beauty “Un” Cover-Up in 22, Soap & Glory Archery in Hot Chocolate, Lancôme Rouge In Love in 153M; Whistles Jumper (not available)

All I said when I went in is that I wanted my hair washed and chopped slightly longer than my shoulder. I think she’s cut off about 15 cm off my hair – if not more – and I couldn’t be any happier with the result. It’s slightly shorter than I initially anticipated, but I actually like it this way. It’s crazy how many compliments I’ve received, both virtually and in person. Currently I’m struggling a bit to add a bit of volume and texture to my hair as it’s super straight and glossy, so I’m testing different products. I’ll report back once I’ve found something that works!
