Long Bob Update #lob

A while ago I blogged about how much I loved the look of a long bob but totally I chickened out at the last moment when the time came to chop off my then long locks. Well if you follow me on social media then you'll know that I did eventually go for the Lob. I'm not sure why I've taken so long to blog about it though, I think I had envisioned myself photographing a beautiful post with mw modelling various Lob hairstyle options but being a busy mama, I just never have the time!! Despite being apprehensive beforehand, I loved my new cut right from the start. I think I wanted to get used to seeing myself with short hair, work out how to style it before telling everyone how much I love the Lob as it's affectionately known.

One day I was walking past the Richard Ward Metrospa on Duke of York Square, Chelsea. Richard Ward is said to be responsible for the Duchess of Cambridge's lustrous locks. A friend who has equally gorgeous hair had recommended them to me so I thought I would stop buy and see when the next available appointment was. Expecting to be told I'd have to wait at least 6 weeks, I was pleasantly surprised that they had a slot for me the next day, and one for my sister too. That was it, no chickening out this time!!

When I arrived I was given a tour of the Salon and then a consultation with my stylist Nando. He said that my hair was in good condition, especially considering the length and that I colour it regularly and asked if I was sure that I wanted to chop it all off. To which I replied 'No, I'm not sure but let's do this anyway...... '
I went off to get my hair washed and when I returned, my cheeky little sister had already had her hair chopped in to a Lob and she was only supposed to be having a trim!! Nando was absolutely meticulous in cutting my hair, the attention he paid to the detail was just astounding and I left with the best hair cut that I have ever had. As a result of his precision, my nightmare hair has been a dream to handle since cutting it, even if I don't have time to style it properly it still looks heaps better than before, mainly due to the great haircut.

I adore my new(ish) Lob, it's the perfect mummy haircut, without looking mumsy! I love how versatile my hair is, it's still long enough to wear up, I can of course straighten it or just blow dry it with my Babyliss Big Hair. I can now style my hair in a fraction of the time that I used to spend and the style tends to last longer too. The only disadvantage really is that I now need to go for regular trims, I'm due for one now and it's difficult fitting it in ( and also costly) if I don't have Gaga around to babysit whilst I pop to the salon. Other than that I haven't regretted cutting my hair one bit, I love it! My Rapunzel obsessed 3 year old on the other hand....... well she wouldn't talk to me for a while when I came back from the salon and her first comment when she finally did dare to open her mouth??

"Mummy, you're hair is NOT amazing"

Well that was me told!!
