Wanted: New Hairstyle

February 18, 2014

I’m looking for a change.  I’ve been wearing extensions for years.  They are easy to maintain, convenient and my hair (weave) always looks good.  But I’m kind of over it (for right now).  I need a new do!  I want a style that I can wear with my natural hair.

I’m leaning towards the style of the moment, the Bob.  I know everyone is wearing them.  All the ladies look super classy and put together.  I’m thinking that if a long bob I will still be able to wear my infamous high buns and rock the curls.  Since my hair isn’t thick, I feel a shoulder length bob would be the best look for my natural hair.  I’m leaning towards a bob like Zoe Saldana (bottom left) and Keri Hilson.

Are you feeling the “new” Bob?  Which look do you like best?

    I’ve always loved Zoe Saldana’s hair like that. I fell in love with it when she did drumline. Good luck with your decision- can’t wait to see what you decided!

    I currently have a “mini” jet black bob, I’m in the awkward stage of growing it out but I love the bob, and its easy. I don’t put direct heat on my hair so its always rollersets for me and they keep the cut looking full and healthy.

    I love a good bob! I’ve had my hair cut in a bob a few times, but my head is a bit too big to pull it off like the ladies above! I really like Zoe Saldana’s version!

    You would totally look great with a bob! You can definitely pull this look off.

    Yes, the bob would look great on you. I like Tia’s and Keri’s (#1 option).

And I love how CONSISTENT you are with your posting! I just had to throw that compliment in there because I know that is very hard to do. Keep up the good work!

    I need a new hair look too—I’ve been thinking about lobbing y hair off, donating and leaving myself with a stylish bob. I love bobs, they are so elegant, I grew up with one…but I don’t know. I’m scared to do it…but I’m also tired of looking like everyone else in Miami with the long long locks. I saw go for the bob, you can totally pull it of! XO

    The bob is current… And you can make it your own… Maybe with a pop of color!

    Beyoncé’s bob! It’s very dramatic, but you have the personality to pull it off!

    I like Zoe’s and I like Bey’s. Go ahead and rock that pixie again (let me get the pics together for #TBT)!!! Whichever style of the bob you choose, I’m sure you will look great!!

    Great minds! I just made an appointment to get my hair cut. I am definitely about to get a bob soon too! I’m tired of the long hair!

    Bey or Keri’s bob would look really good on you I think.

    so funny that I totally used some of these exact pics when I went in for my bob a few weeks ago. Of course, mine didn’t look like any of these but I’m finally loving the shorter look. I have long, natural hair and so I just got bobbed weave. Hair is just something I don’t have time for, so you could totally do the look with a weave if you want. That way you’re not dealing with the elements or flat ironing or curling your own hair to death.

    I used to have a haircut like Beyonce and I loved it – the only problem was going to the gym. I looked a mess after I sweated it out!

    It’s nice to know that you’re up for some hair style changes, Trina. Whatever bob you choose among these inspirations, I’m sure it will look good on you. I hope you’ll post updates about your new hairstyle. Thanks for sharing! 🙂
