10 Reasons Why Lob > Long Hair.

Yesterday, I told you all about my new haircut. It's been exactly one week since I went for the chop, and I've already counted ten reasons why a short 'do is so much better than a long one...

1. You don't look like every other girl on the street.
Tumbling, brunette Kate Middleton-esque waves with the odd Zooey Deschanel fringe thrown in for good measure = zzzzzzzzz.

2. Hair flipping no longer comes with risk of serious injury.
Long hair is all fun and games until someone loses an eye(s).

You flip that short hair freely, gurl.

3. Brushing your hair no longer requires a day's planning...
... because it used to take so. Damn. Long.

4. ... and the prospect of washing and blow-drying your hair no longer brings you to tears.

Time restraints + long hair - it's not a combination worth dealing with.

5. It's so low maintenance.
An actual bob is a nightmare to style. Long hair is an effort to style, but also to wash.
But the lob? 5 minutes to wash, 5 minutes to dry, and you're good to go... and you can't help but feel a liiiiittle bit smug about it.

6. Come summer, you'll be feeling even more smug.
That beast sat on your head is no longer retaining all your body heat, so you'll feel about a billion degrees cooler than your long-haired pals, and your shoulders might actually get a chance of getting a tan.

7. You can freely use this Mean Girls one-liner.
Say goodbye to backcombing and masses of hairspray, because less weight at the ends = more volume at the roots...

 8. ... and less of that zhuzh-ing = longer lie-in.
Lob = the lazy girl's dream.

9. Bedhead is actually chic.
A lob manages to look even better having been slept in...

... can't say the same for long hair.

Oh dear. 

10. Taylor. Lauren. Rosie. Jenna.
Need I say more? I think my work is done.

Farewell, long hair - it was a blast... but short hair is so much better.

  2. Totally agree with this...and you look just beautiful with the lob. Although the minute I saw Miss Taylor had gone for the cut I just had to do original eh!
