Today I woke up with a bob.

Well, okay, I had my hair cut yesterday (as of publishing this, it’s actually been a couple weeks). But it doesn’t really appear until the next day. That’s when you wake up, puffy faced and styling-less, and you can really look at the horrible mistake you’ve made.

Just kidding! For once I’ve woken up and I love it more than I did when I first had it done. It’s had time to settle into my face. Do you know what I mean?

This sudden short hair has got me all obsessed with head-wear. When I had long hair, I was always worried about it getting messed up. A small breeze could push it out of the delicately styled do I did before I left the house. There was no chance I’d purposefully mess that up with a beanie!

But an elegantly styled bob simply falls back into place. And if it gets messed up, I just look all the more punk rock, am I right?

So, here goes. Let’s start the bob-spiration.

Since I’ve gotten a bob I’ve gone back to listening to my old favourite girl punk bands. I can’t believe I stopped loving Heaven’s to Betsy. This kind of hair is making me channel my inner riot girl again! I need more floral bridesmaid dresses and flannel shirts.

Since I’ve gotten a bob, I feel simultaneously more elegant.

Since I’ve gotten a bob I realised how many of my favourite alternative characters have amazing bobs that look exactly like mine. Jane Lane from Daria, Enid from Ghost World, Scully from X-Files (original series).

Since I’ve gotten a bob, it’s made me want to cover it up! With hats, that is. I feel like a bob goes perfectly with all of the hair accessories.

What about you? Is it about time you changed up your look? I know for me, a hair cut has been long overdue. My ends were dead and still red from a million years ago. I’m still trying to grow out my side-cut – which is so much more difficult with long hair, and I just ended up putting it in a bun every day. Oh, and are you a bob fan? I didn’t think I was, but suddenly I am! Who knew?

    Haha a bob is useless for those of us with curly hair. I tried it once, straightening every day, but gave that up. It's also too short to put up, but long enough to fly in your face. Haha never again. You probably don't have it as bad since you have straight hair lol.

    I love this hair on you! I used to have a bob somewhere around 4-5 years ago and I really liked that style, but my hair is naturally wavy, so in order for it to look perfectly styled I had to straighten it, which wasn't exactly the best thing for my hair :S So eventually I decided to let it grow back out 😛

    It looks great on you and totally 90s!
    Short to mid length hair is broadcast for bad hair days for me, as my hair is naturally wavy and can go all sorts of directions when short hehe. So I am happily growing it out at the moment.

    So cute! It suits you so well. Short hair is brilliant, so lovely for summer and quick to dry.

    You look fantastic with a bob! It's one of my favorite styles! I definitely understand that need for change. I had a pixie cut about a year and a half ago and I've been growing it out. I very recently went greyish silver blonde and I love it 🙂
