The Hot Mess Life

June 15, 2010


I am on the hunt for a hot new hairstyle.  A few months back I had 10 inches cut off of my length and went with a pretty short bob w/ heavy bangs a la Katie Holmes.  (It was about inch longer than hers.)  It was awesome, and it was a great change from the long hair, but now my hair is about shoulder length, the bangs are well, long enough to be considered another layer and not bangs. 

The time has come for me to get another haircut, I am not very good at doing the every six weeks thing, I go about 3 times a year.  Especially since I haven't been able to find a decent stylist.  All the good ones start having babies and then leave me, how rude, right???

I am thinking about growing it out again, until then I need a cute in between style.  It is summer here in the midwest, so I would like to stay away from the heavy blunt bangs, (I sweat like none other), I do like bangs, so I am thinking longer side swept bangs.  My face is heart shaped, but at this particular time in my life, a bit pudgy. :)

 I am so in love with this:


My favorite though is this, not sure if it would still be amazing with another inch or two added, I am leaning towards this one.  (Also because Jennifer Aniston is my American Idol.) 

All in all for summer I want a clean, simple and classy look.  I don't like blowing drying a lot since it is so hot, but I do realize some amount of blow drying and straightening will be required.  Although if I could keep that to under 15 minutes, I am golden.

I know it's hard without an actual picture of me, but there is a small one by my profile.  :)



  1. Ummm YES! Long bobs are sooooo cute! Just enough to make your hair look sleek and fresh in the in-betweenie stage!

    I could see you with your Heidi haircut in a pretty light espresso color! You would look great in a very deep, rich color!

    { So Chic! }

  2. I am going through the same thing. Donated 11 inches to Locks of Love. Done with the really short hair and need a new do. These are cute choices you picked.

  3. I am leaning towards the Heidi Klum style, I think that is what Jennifer Aniston's would look like with a few more inches, just like I wanted!
    Hair Appt is made next thursday!
