So… up until just after the birth of my first little one, I had long dark hair past my shoulders.
Did I ever wear it down? – NO. I think I wore it up in every conceivable style but mainly kept it in a low pony tail soooo much that the sides were constantly breaking.
To be honest, I never really felt like the long hair suited me and wearing that stupid elastic band everyday gave me a headache. I just didn’t know what else I could do with it that would suit me and still look professional…(but not matronly if you get what I’m saying…. )
You can see from my recent profile picture that I’ve gone super short for the summer (and blonde) but it doesn’t take cutting off ALL of your hair to get a put together look. Check out this gallery for some hair style inspiration at many different lengths:
