My new Roman haircut


Not quite. But I had this done for my holiday in Rome. I've had long hair for ages now I thought it was time for a change. Last time I took this bold step was about three years ago, and regretted it for a year at least afterwards. This time I decided not to go so short, and my new lovely hairdresser cut it into a soft bob.

In the picture I've tried to blow dry it myself, with not much success. I'd also run out of any product to put in, so that didn't help. And not wearing a stich of make-up wasn't such a good idea either. But you get the general shape of the cut. So what do you think?

I think its lovely. The blow dry looks great I wouldnt try to get it too perfect yourself I bet it would look great messy too. Is that your own colour ? It looks it has a good quality to it you lucky girl. I always tried to be an ash blonde its only the last two years I have let it go to natural which is more a strawberry blonde. Have a great time in Rome x

Of course it's my own colour...(she lies). I haven't yet tried it messy, I've got such curly and thick hair, it'll look like a crow's nest 'au naturel'. I might have to give it a go in Rome though, as it'll too hot for a perfect hairdo! xx

You go girl (so AMERICAN, I know!) I love it! I can't really tell without a full on photo, but it looks damn good to me! I have really long hair and have "longed" to part with it.....but can't imagine seeing the shears lop off my locks. It would kill me. You are a brave soldier of the scissors. I think you'll enjoy it. It's really much freer having shorter hair. And to be a blonde....something I'll never get to do :( Do you guys have more fun? xoxoxxoxo--- One of 365

LOVE it!!! I actually just got much the same haircut...the longer pieces in the front make it look soft and kind of sexy in a "Bridgitte Bardot if she had a bob" sort of way...very chic look for Rome :)

It looks wonderful! I did the same thing not too long ago, and I'm really glad I did! (I've ALWAYS had long hair...)

It's still possible to snag it back when I want it out of my face or off my neck, but it's shorter and bouncy now, which I really like- tho of course MINE is grey and brown and yours is lovely sexy blond.

The part I like best is that when you get a good haircut, you don't have to worry about your hair because it just falls right.

Some things are worth paying for.
