What do you do with your hair?
I think my regular hair dresser was half drunk from the night before, the last time I visited her salon.
She didn't cut it the way she usually does so at the minute, it's longer than usual and with no defined shape to the layers around the face. As a result I'm feeling like I need a "do".
My inner voice keeps telling me I should have a "DO" at my age (41)
It's getting to the point where I'm feeling twitchy and I might do something drastic.
But every time I've ever gone for something shorter or not the norm for me, I've REALLY regretted it.
Shorter hair ages me something fierce.
But is long hair too try hard for my age?
See, that's stupid isn't it.
I regularly see older women with long flowing locks in all shades.
I never, ever think that about them, why am I being hard on myself then?
Bl00dy hell, why didn't I get her to cut more off at the time.
It's only been about 6 weeks and I can usually go 4 mths without seeing the hairdresser. Maybe it just didn't feel like I had anything done and so I'm feeling overdue a cut now?
I don't know why it's bugging me so much lately.
Oh yeah, and it's started falling out after bub, maybe that's it.
Maybe I'm just tired and need a pepping up.
Do you have a do?
Oh what to do...
btw,can you tell I'm rocking DD to sleep and a bit bored

I have a layered cut just above shoulders and had a full fringe cut back in (sometimes do a side swept fringe).
I think face shape and hair type is really what makes a cut look good on a person or not. I love long hair however it doesn't suit me. My hair is heavy and thick and long cuts drag it down flat and it looks terrible. I also have a small face which gets lost in long hair haha!
Google images for your face shape and cuts - that might help a bit 😊

I know my face shape - wrong!
If I get a fringe or shorter layers at the front it makes me look like I have no forehead and elongates my face shape.
But then no shape isn't doing me any favours either.
I'd love to go to a stylist and have it cut properly, just once, but it's a case of who to trust.

Hairdressers! They're like GPs, sooooooo hard to find! That's half the battle. My DS is 10 months old and always pulls my hair so I wear it in a high pony all the time!
No long hair isn't too try hard if you're 40!!! Never ever! Do you have much time in your day to dedicate to styling it? Or do you need to wash and go?

My hair is down to my bra strap and I'm 36. I've had it pixie short and every length in between but prefer having it long. Mine is just a simple straight cut, no layers. It's very fine and I don't have a lot of it. I dye it brown with golden highlights underneath and wear it down most days. I struggled finding a great hairdresser when we moved here three years ago but found one on my fourth attempt. It's really just a matter of trial and error in my experience. You could also go by word of mouth or try something like True Local for reviews.
I love long hair on grown women. I don't see an age limit on it though I definitely think anything longer than waist length is a bit much, but that's because I've never seen hair that length in really good condition.
I also like to Google haircuts and show my hairdresser what I like and she either tells me yay or nay based on my face shape and hair type.

I have a long bob - always blow dried and out most of the time.
I think you need to decide what type of style do you want or need. Wash and go, time to style, up or down.
I would pay to see a stylist and have a consultation before you get a cut.

I'd do some googling and try to find some positive reviews of local salons/hairdressers. You want someone who has a clue of what will suit your face and your styling requirements. Let them guide you into making a decision.
I'm in my mid 30's and I've decided that shoulder length hair works best for me, but it needs some good layers in it. And it needs to be just long enough to put in a ponytail for those days where your hair won't cooperate!
I desperately need a cut myself, it's just finding the time and deciding where the heck to get it done!

I have never, ever done that in my life.
I have pretty straight hair though so it doesn't take much to dry it.
She always does a great job and understands that I can only get to see her 2-3 times a year so she works with colour than will grow out gradually and always gives me a decent cut, so that grows out lovely too.
I swear, she was off form last time I was there haha. I've forgiven her.
I'm just nervous of handing over all say and letting her cut what she wants. I'd be like that with anyone though.

I'm early 30s and my hair just touches the top of my bum. It's not a style I've consciously chosen; it's a combination of not knowing what works on me and never having the money spare to see a hairdresser. Last time I saw one dd had just been born; she turns 2 in just over a week.
I almost always wear mine in a messy bun these days because its curly and frizzy and I just cannot.
I need a style dr stat.
