Thoughts By Natalie

the faux bob.

[1, 2, 3]

Last week I shared six of my favorite summer-worthy hair styles, and today I’m here with even more hair goodness for you to soak up and try for yourself.

I have super long hair, and I’m oh-so-proud of it. I’ve written all of my deeper thoughts on the topic here, but that’s not what I’m talking about today. To my long-haired girls out there: do you ever get this wild temptation to cut off all of your hair even though you love having long hair? If so, I’m with you. Every now and then I neglect to recognize the ease of my long locks and get an itch to try something newer and more fun.

Enter the faux bob.

It’s a super easy way to give yourself a temporary change and feel like a chic, hip short-haired girl. I first discovered it on the B.Jones Style blog. In her post, she does a fabulous demonstration that shows just how easy it is to do:

Would you try the faux bob? Why or why not?

    Hey Natalie!

    I love this idea and think I may try out the faux bob this weekend. Thanks for the video.

    I also want to say that I really like your blog. You really offer something different and truly inspirational. Although, I am not a Christian (but follow an Eastern religious belief system) I still find wisdom in your words and writing. You have a strong faith (which is admirable), offer an optimistic outlook on what it means to be a woman.

    Thank you for all the inspiration you have given me. You have really helped me accept myself and grow into a young woman.

    All the best!

      Hi Laura,

      Thank you for your kind words! I’m so glad to hear you’re finding value in the blog, and I’m encouraged by everything you said! It reminds me of why I do what I do–to help other women know, love, and accept themselves.

      Thanks for being a reader!!

      In love,

    Yeah! I just chopped ten inches off for a REAL bob and a donation to Locks of Love. Thought I’d miss the hair, but am loving it. Hooray for the bob! :)
