Bob, Anti-Bob

At least once every year (and by once I mean 6+ times per year), I am convinced I need a bob again. Logically I know that every single time I've bobbed my hair the enchantment lasts a week. Then it starts growing in like Moncchichi hair and I have to get it cut every 4 minutes so it doesn't grow out weird and start getting flippies. Within the first month I get pissed off that you can't do very much with a bob. (Never mind that I almost eternally have a ponytail. That is failure on my part but I could have more than a ponytail.)

Additionally, it's really hard to grow in a bob without some awkward as heck hairstyles.

And for all of these reasons, I will not have a bob. Won't.

Needless to say, I love them on everyone else.

  1. So you tell us bobs are awful, then show us how fantastic you look with a bob. WHOSE SIDE ARE YOU ON?!

    But seriously, I am fickle about hair. Since I have short hair, I want long hair. When I have long hair, I shave my head. Once the "hey, isn't short hair better?" thought enters my mind, there's almost no chance I'll resist a dramatic hair chop.

    BOTTOM LINE: All hair sucks. Being hairless also sucks. You will be beautiful with any or no hair.

  2. It was cute in the pic but I agree, don't do it. It's taking FOREVER for me to grow my hair out.

  3. I had a bob and am completely hating my hair now! Ive been wearing it in a ponytail as much as I can and then a headband to hold the rest. I look lime I'm ready to play volleyball.
    PS a bob looks so cute on you!

  4. You're taking the words right out of my mouth. I've been good (or bad) enough to not even get a haircut in three years after growing out my stupid bob. But oh how I want one so bad again! When you have a bob, you feel 12 again while all the girls around you have long swishy hair!

  5. In the meantime, I makeup for the urge by constantly destroying my bangs :-/

  7. You pull this off so, so well. I understand your frustration though! But really, the look is very adorable.

  8. Oh, I loved my bob, but it wasn't the right hairstyle for my hair. You look adorable with it. Sounds like you just need to find some beauty students who need to work on trims every week.

  11. I hate to say this but I love your bob! It's hard to grow out - I try growing my short hair out and always give up. Once, I got to the bob stage, but not farther.
