‘Do Overs’

My hair is the same length as Anna Ewers’ in the bottom image. This story, by the brilliant hair stylist Guido Palau, is from the May issue of W.
A few days ago, as I was running to a school assembly with my hair tucked into the neck of a turtleneck sweater, I got a number of compliments on my “haircut”. I’m eyeing the top pic and thinking I should give that length a try. TBC

  • The long crop looks so modern and fresh! Love it.

  • That cut is so classic. You can’t go wrong.

  • Like Nike says, “Just Do It”. It will look fantastic on you!!

  • Although I think the cut is modern and chic…I have hair similar in length and cut to yours now. I personally have regretted my “lobs” especially with summer coming. There is so much more versatility with longer hair in the summer – chic ponytail, braid etc. If you are considering, I suggest waiting for fall, but my hair curls up with humidity so my lob quickly becomes a bushy bob.

  • My hair is the length of the first photo, after a “lob” and although I like it when someone blow dries it well, it is harder to style, and to not long enough for a messy chignon or anything. Growing mine back to just past my collarbone.

  • I agree. Hold the cut for fall when you won’t mind that hair on your neck. With warmer weather on the way updos and ponytails are the way to go.

  • Such a personal decision, but I vote cut! Grace Kelly wore a nice length, as did Audrey Hepburn. In the Hollywood world, Annette Bening sets a nice example. Something very adult about shorter hair.

  • I’m taking AMaryB’s advice and waiting until fall. I predict that we will have a scorcher of a summer and I’m going to want to put it up.

  • I would actually wait for fall like several suggested here. And also, enjoy the long hair while you’ve got it. I’m in my 40s and enjoying still having a rather long hair, although must admit to have cut it a little bit shorter recently.
