I love reading other people's blogs, and one of my favourite bloggers (rbekhaj.com) has a series appropriately named 'Small Happy Moments'. I love reading this series because it is so positive and uplifting, and it has reminded me to appreciate some of the smaller things in life. So, I thought I'd try my hand at writing some happy moments myself. Welcome to my first 'Happy Moments' post...I got a (pretty drastic) haircut!
I've never really known what to do with my hair as I'm really lazy with it, but recently a hairdresser friend of mine wanted a model to take with him to London to showcase his work. I had absolutely no say in what he did to my hair and I actually loved what he did - which I was glad about, as I was scared I'd hate it. I've always wanted my hair blonder and have never even considered going darker than my original colour, so it was a bit of a shock to me when I loved the darkish brown he'd dyed my hair (even if the sun has now tinted it lighter). He also put a fringe in and cut a fair bit off the length so my hair's now in a bob; I absolutely love the fringe - something I never thought I'd say - and I like the shape of my haircut, too; I'd like it a little longer just so I can tie it up.
Here are a few before and after pictures.
This haircut has given me such a confidence boost and it was definitely a change that I've been wanting for a while (that 'post breakup haircut'? A year overdue). The change to my appearance has given me a lot of happiness so I felt that it was worthy of my first 'happy moments' post. I hope you enjoyed reading!
