Hair. Debating. Always.

So I've got a much-needed haircut scheduled Friday at Carmen Carmen, and I'm so antsy to get it done.  Way overdue!  I've been barely surviving on bang trims alone, and my last proper haircut was in (eek!) November.  Between the holidays and the busy travel season, this appointment can't get here soon enough.

As always, I'm having the longer v. shorter debate.

On one hand, I like having long hair, I like the flexibility it gives me for wearing it up (topknots, ponytails, braids).  Ian loves it long.  I can put hot rollers in or wear it stick-straight.

On the other hand, I'm just not sold on whether my hair is thick enough to merit a long length.

So thank goodness for the InStyle Hairstyle Try-On app on my iPad (along with a good dose of boredom and a glass of wine)!  I "tried on" a few styles and got a kick out of it.


Um, this could never be my hair, but I sort of wish it was.  Thick, long, layered, subtle highlights.  Gorgeous.


The style above has a lot more volume at the top than I could probably muster, but I like the layers and length.


I love this hairstyle!  Pouf at top, soft curls and layers.  Hmm.  If only I could get my hair to hold a curl like this.


This one is probably my favorite of the mid-length styles.  I like how modern it is, and those long bangs are so cute.  I'm unsure if my bangs would lay that flat.


And same style but in blonde!
Hmmmm.... I think not.
(shudder)

Have you used this tool before?  It's great for a laugh with some girlfriends!

  3. I think the third style looks most like it does now, but I love how the bangs look on you in the first picture!

  4. I need that app! So cool! Do you love Carmen and Carmen? I still haven't found a place to get my hair done yet. I usually end up going wherever I purchase a groupon.

  5. That app is so fun, I need to try it out next time I get a cut, I am always debating short v. long. I love the curls on you :)

  6. What a fun app! I recently took the plunge and cut my hair up to my shoulders. As much as I miss my sock bun { and let me tell you I really really do } this do is so much faster and easier to deal with. I am sure you will look lovely no mater what you chose :)

  7. Hehe that looks like a fun app. Maybe I should check it out to figure out what I want to do with my hair after the wedding! I love the second to last one on you!

  8. Love those side bangs on the last pic. Have you ever tried a Sultra Bombshell curling rod? Your hair will hold curl if you use it... promise. Also, do you ever use dry shampoo at your crown? That helps tons if you are going for volume.

  16. What an adorable app! I need to download! :) I like the style you like (the bangs up, with the soft curls). I'm always changing my hair, too, but usually in small/subtle boring ways, haha. (Bangs, no bangs, layers, less layers) :) Can't wait to see your new 'do!
