    I got bored of brown so I died my hair a dark red. It’s been that way for a few months now and next Saturday I am dying it back brown and chopping it! I am so excited! It always makes me feel so refreshed!

    For some reason it is not letting me write a comment. I can type in the box but I can’t see a send or post message to click. I wanted you to know that I love your new hair and think it is great that you are donating your now old hair. X

    It looks great! I recently buzzed the side of my head for an undercut look.. so many people told me not to. I stuck to my guns and decided that it was just hair. After I got it done EVERYONE told me it suited me so well, and looks like I’ve always had it. It was actually so liberating to do, I felt like I could take on anything, and there were no boundaries. Just goes to show – always stick to your guns, ladies!!

      I think it takes a lot to go against everyone’s thoughts and stick to your own decision. It really does pay off! It is so liberating. I love reading stories like these, sometimes physical change can really affect our minds.

    It is SO much easier! The maintenance part is amazing, although it does require some product. With long hair, I spent forever trying to make it look less messy. With short hair, it is the complete opposite! xx

    Wow, it’s like you’ve read my mind. I have been contemplating lately whether to cut my hair or not and was going to make a post about it, haha! My hair’s shoulder length and gets a lot of compliments, but I also want to experiment and cut it short. It’s always scary going to the hairdressers and not knowing what kind of haircut you’ll leave shop with! By the way, you look gorgeous! X

      Thank you!! Cutting hair can be really daunting because if you do not like your hair, you can get insecure about your image. I noticed that with my long hair, I liked scrapping it all back, so I thought going short would not be such a shock for me.
      I say go for it! Maybe even take baby steps with cutting a little further away when you for your trim. I am sure it will work! X

    That is one of the nicest comments! You are gorgeous and I always love reading your blog posts. You discuss such a good range of topics.
    Here is hoping that I do actually change it now – in a good way! x

    It looks great! My hair is long-ish so I never style it. I just pull it up in a bun to get it out of my face. That’s not cute! Wth? Lol I like your short haircut. Very inspiring!

    • lauzieslifestyle says

      lol I am terrible at styling my hair! I can barely even do a good bun so just resorted to making it look ‘messy’ on purpose.
      Long hair doesn’t need styling and there is nothing wrong with pulling it into a bun. 🙂

    Thank you girl!
    I think it is great that you stuck to your decision. I don’t know why people have such an obsession with women needing to have long hair.
    It is easy to manage but I do need to style it and usually with mousse. Otherwise it awkwardly sits flat on my face and I look like Dora the Explorer haha. But it is amazing when I realise how much quicker it dries and easier it is to wash etc. x

    Thank you!
    You hair looks great so what you are doing is clearly working. I am glad that I stopped colouring mine. It looks so much healthier since I stopped and I agree about the natural shampoo’s and conditioners. x

      I dont know what is it with my hair and coloring them. The 2 times I colored them I got greys! I think there is some kind of consipiracy theory with hair color brands. I dont find them honest. I go for natural hair colors like henna based or something. But unfortunately I have a lot of hairfall.

      • lauzieslifestyle says

        After dying my hair black, I used to go to a salon and do semi-permanent, as I was told that it was less harsh than full. Every 6 weeks though, despite doing exactly what they recommended, my hair look in a bad state – far more than what it should in 6 weeks!
        I guess each to their own. At least you know now to avoid the hair colour brands and you do have a beautiful, natural shade. Henna based sounds good and I might do that if I go back to dying my hair.

    You look so cute with your short hair! I’ve always preferred my hair longer, just cause I feel like I can do more styling with it. However, it always takes forever to dry which annoys me. It also tangles a lot and breaks since my hair is quite fine. I’ve been considering cutting it shorter than I usually do lately, just to shake things up. And after all, it’ll grow back right? 🙂

    • lauzieslifestyle says

      Thank you Angela!
      My hair is quite fine as well and it does tangle quite easily. I also have to wash it routinely because of how oily it gets – apparently a symptom of fine hair – hopefully you don’t have that problem!!
      You have beautiful hair but there is no harm in cutting it a little shorter than usual, just to see what you think. x

    I had done a pixie cut on a whim 3 years back, and I remember how liberating it felt to trade my long hair for a shorter one. I suddenly felt a lot more in control of my own life, sort of like a girlboss! And short hair suits you as well as your long hair did. ☺️

    • lauzieslifestyle says

      I tried to click on your profile and WordPress says it is no longer available – it happens a lot to me, so I wanted to ask what length your hair is now and whether you kept your hair short?
      I do feel really liberated and more in control. x

      • Mahalakshmi says

        My hair has grown beyond my bra strap, maybe an inch or two below that. This is with the curlier ends of my hair, from April 2014 to now. I plan on growing it pretty long, because I’ve never tried it before. 🙂
        Weirdly, my url gets displayed as some old one I previously had. In case you’re interested, my website is https://melangeofwords.wordpress.com/ 🙂

    Whenever I feel like a change in my life or whenever I start a new chapter ( for example going to university last year) I will always change my hair style weather it’s cutting it or changing the colour. Short hair looks good on you and since it’s summer I just think it’s way better than having long locks!

    • lauzieslifestyle says

      Thank you! I am curious to see whether I get used to it short or whether I grow it out in the winter.
      I think changing your hair when you start a new chapter is a really cool idea. It is almost like changing mentally and physically together. 🙂

        I chopped 4 ” off 2 months ago and its still below my bra line. Was thinking of a long bob… With me its a in the moment thing. One day ill wake up and decided thats the day my hair will be chopped…. If i think about things for to long they never happen 🙂 xx

        • lauzieslifestyle says

          I am the opposite because once I have my mind set on something, I have to see it through. But you have great hair. You need your husband to surprise you with a hair app. and then you can’t get out of not cutting it lol. xx

    You look gorgeous! It suits you so much. I had long hair all my life and the second I left school I cut it all off and had never felt so fierce and free. It’s amazing what a haircut can do for you! I always looked more ‘desirable’ with longer hair but didn’t necessarily feel it, when I cut it off I didn’t care about how I looked anymore because I felt so good and like I could take on the world (that might sound silly though). Great post! X

    • lauzieslifestyle says

      It does not sound silly at all! I can completely understand and since this cut, I have felt a sense of freedom and power.
      It is about how you feel and what keeps you feeling alive. As much as I love long hair – maybe I will even grow it again, I think it is so important to embrace change.
      It is amazing what a haircut can do! xx
