Fashion or Fad

Have you noticed that the just-got-out-of-bed hairstyle is everywhere? Apparently, it’s very “in”.



I’m not against a tousled look. Casual and carefree can be quite attractive.

But, I do have one question…

Where was I when parting your hair with a comb went out of style?



When I was in school, if a girl showed up to class with hair like this – the teacher would pull her aside and ask whether she lost her hairbrush… or just neglected to stand close enough to her comb that morning!



The photos in today’s post popped up while I was searching for hairstyle ideas. I’ve had short hair for years, but I’m ready for a change!

Of course, it’s not easy to live through the transition from short layers to a longer, more even length. No siree, Kids! Not easy at all!

I’ve tried and failed countless times before. (story here)


This time is different!
I’ve spent the last year patiently impatiently waiting for the layers in my hair to grow into something like a chin-length bob.

For inspiration, I’ve been paying more attention to the hairstyles of women on TV and in magazines. So many feature a zigzag part!

I don’t think it’s for me, though. I’d constantly be tempted to grab a comb and straighten it out.

Guess I’m not that casual. ๐Ÿ˜‰


Do you change your hairstyle, often? Are you more adventurous than I?



I’d love to hear your thoughts!

  1. I am a person before my time. I love the tousled look and have worn my hair that way for some time. Occasionally I blow dry it smooth, but I really like to pull it up with a clip haphazardly. That crooked bang look was big when my daughter graduated from Cosmetology school. She can do it quickly somehow, but I never could make it happen.

    I went through that grow out the layer syndrom and you are right, its not easy. Now the layers are gone for about a year and I’m wondering if I should have Laurie cut layers again to enhance my tousled look ~lol~. And that’s not even mentioning that I am thinking of changing colors again. I often wonder how some women can wear the same style year after year. I am known for shaking it up every year around January.

    Hope you post a pic when you decide on what you will do!

  2. I like to keep my hair about shoulder length. I cannot wear the tousled look at school because I don’t think it is professional enough for teaching. I don’t have layers anymore either. It took me about 2 years to grow them all out. It can pull my hair back in a pony tail on hot days and wear a do-rag on the Harley.

    Good luck! When you decide what to do let us know. I bought hair color today to cover up the grey. There are so many choices these days, its hard to know which brand to choose. Stay warm, everyone!

  3. Hi Ladies!
    Love hearing your opinions!

    Carol, it must be great to have a daughter with a Cosmetology background when you need input on a new style or color. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Kelly, I admire your patience waiting 2 years… Would you believe I haven’t ever colored my hair? I do have some grey but mixed in with brown. I tell myself the grey strands are “highlights”. Lol

  4. I cut and colour at home frequently lol.
    I must admit i wish people would dress up more,it almost seems the more casually we dress the less manners are used .

  5. Oh yes, Michelle!
    I also miss seeing people dressed up, now and then. It really is fun.
    Sure, it’s important to be comfortable but a nice outfit can be comfortable, too! ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Oh yes…growing out a short hair style can be so difficult! I had short hair only once a long time ago. The style was called “The Dorothy Hamill”. I remember how hard waiting for that to grow out was. I’ve had long hair ever since. For years I wore a bob a bit longer than shoulder length, but now it’s really long. When it’s not down, it’s up in a casual, messy bun …but a zig zag part is a bit too messy for me! Good luck growing out your hair, Crystal. Soon you’ll have the style you’ve been waiting for! xoxo Paulette
