It was the most random and impulsive decision.
While driving on Saturday, I glanced down at my hair during the slow-moving traffic, and just felt so disgusted and frustrated at the yellow dry strands (it didn't help that I was having a bad hair day. But then again, I seemed to be having bad hair week/ month for awhile already...).
Suddenly I thought of the long bobs that I have been admiring on Instagram recently. It seems like everyone has been chopping off their hair for a blunt bob nowadays. Lauren Conrad, Taylor Swift, Lily Collins, Emma Stone...
I WANT TO CHOP OFF MY HAIR TOO!
In the traffic jam, I messaged Yen Lim, one of my most trusted hairstylist friend, and sent her this photo....
.... and asked her: "Can I carry off a long bob?"
She replied: "YES!"
And I proceeded to make an appointment for Monday (i.e. yesterday).
I was quite excited about the prospect of having a hair makeover, though I am scared shit of how a long bob will look on my round face (and big head T_T). After all, my nickname in office last time was Chupa Chups WTF.
But then it hit me that we have our wedding reception next year! :O :O :O I DO want long hair for that... We still don't have a wedding date yet (that's another story for another day...), but there's a chance it will be in July-- which leaves me with about 7 months.
Furiously googled how fast can hair grow, and the answer is-- about 3 inches in 6 months! That's not a lot. T__T Also posted a vote on my Dayre, and the votes were half-half-- some of you said absolutely NO, whereas some of you said that I can always rely on hair extensions, haha.
Anyway, I went ahead with a hair cut!!!
Tada, new hair!
I didn't go for as short as I intended-- I still hope to wear my hair long on my wedding (without hair extensions). But I still went shorter than I *should*! :P Probably took off 7-8 inches at least.
Lunch today with Teeny. A lot to catch up on since I haven't seen her properly for about 2 weeks already!
We wanted to have lunch at Lai Thai at Happy Mansion, but it was closed. Somehow I don't have fate with Lai Thai! Everytime our lunch plans at Lai Thai sure won't work out. T__T In the end, we still had Thai food at My Elephant, which was nearby.
Very excited about today's outfit, because it's a dress from AZORIAS' new line! We are launching a new range of apparel with a slightly lower price point, and there are so many pretty items in it. *heart* Will announce its launch soon! :D
