A Middy Cut
I asked another stylist for a bob and walked away with a sterotypical short "mom" hair style. I instantly looked ten yrs older and much less-cuter for my husband.
After that, I just trimmed the ends myself, avoiding trying to find a new stylist.
Below is my hairs a few days ago when my in-laws were in town. (They gifted me a Ninja blender - the thing is awesome!)
Well, my friend (and hairdresser) moved back to little 'ol upstate NY and since my favorite way to wear my hair is in sort of 1940's styles I sent her a diagram of a long Middy cut from the era. It looked like gibberish to me but she is brilliant and deciphered it and modernized it a bit so I can wash and wear it.
I've found that longer hair is so easy to care for and keep nice (than short hair, having had both lengths). My husband also prefers the more feminine looking-ness of length. My hairdresser had curled my hair but this little half updo took about two minutes with just a few bobby pins and keeps it out of my face all day. On busy days I quickly braid the rest of it into a side or back braid or a bun at the nape of my neck. Youtube has been a huge source of hair style inspiration for me. I don't consider doing my hair as vanity but see taking time to learn how to do my hair as a way to glorify God by looking presentable and look cute for my husband (and it just takes a few minutes, like I said).
