E-LOB & I


LOBS have been doing the rounds for a number of years. A LOB? Long Bob. Just to make my self clear.

{Celebrity Lobbers}

On Saturday morning, I was contemplating getting a hair cut. A LOB, perhaps? That contemplation turned into a last minute hair appointment. Going into the hairdressers, I smelled of hair desperation. My hair was practically begging, 'cut me off'. Just cut the whole lot off. At first, the hairdresser wouldn't comply. 'Really?', she asked. 'Are you sure?', she also asked. By this stage, I was fit to grab the scissors and cut it my self.

I eventually persuaded her that my desired hair cut would be perfect. So, she cut and chopped. What was I left with? An E-LOB. Yes, you read that right. E-LOB? Extra long bob.

Just to be 'different', ya know? Despite having a ridiculous named haircut, it was the best decision I have made in quite some time. I feel like a new person. Only, I'm not. No hiding behind my hair now. See Ms. Hairdresser, I told you it would be all okay. An added plus? My hair style rhymes. E-LOB, Knob, Sob, Mob, Lob.......

I may not look happy in the picture below, but trust me, I am delighted. Capital D-E-L-I-G-H-T-E-D. E-LOB & I will (hopefully) live happily ever after.


Who also has a LOB, or even better an E-LOB? Let me know!

Nice LOB:) I am saving for one!!!!!

GRIT AND GLAMOUR said...

Looks great! And would look sensational curly too!

A did a big chop into and ELOB a couple years ago, and grew it out immediately. But every once in a while, I feel so compelled to do a drastic chop and shock the hell out of everyone. Only thing is I know the person most shocked (and not in a good way) will be me. Oh well. One day!
