On September 1st I went to Lorraine Aprile Salon to get my long blonde hair chopped off. I was super excited! I was bored by my long locks and ready for something new.
In short (pun intended), I wanted a modern 1920s bob.
A true 1920s bob was very short, cut bluntly across the cheekbones with thick bangs cut ending above the eyebrows and symmetrical all the way around.
I wanted my hair to end a little longer, before my chin and my bangs to fall a bit over my eyebrows. I used Katie Holmes bob pictures as reference. (Cutting her hair short was the best thing Katie H ever did.)
Most importantly I wanted razor cut ends to add some texture.
My stylist was Kris and she knew exactly what I wanted. She had plenty of experience with retro hairstyles and she was great to work with. They also gave me free wine so that was a bonus. Even better, the first cut was half off, so I ended up only paying $33 for it!
This is the end result! I love it!
It’s super easy to deal with. Quick to blow dry and I only need to use a round brush to get the look. I can’t wait to play with it and see what else I can do. :)
