THE CHOP

My poor locks were strangled. After being blonde for many years and then colouring my hair red, they gave up on me. The ends were spindly and no matter how I tried to style it, the strands remained limp and tired. I couldn’t put it off any longer, it was time for the chop! So in typical Katie fashion (all things done to extremes), I decided to lose the length completely and go for a long bob with a fringe. I was channeling an Alexa Chung vibe. Although, Alexa doesn’t have to contend with a hot Canterbury wind which renders the fringe unnoticeable due to severe blow-back… Isn’t it funny how as women we develop an emotional attachment to our hair. We often think that a shorter, more manageable do will have us looking a little less sexy and feminine. I must admit, when I go out now I do feel different. With my messy, choppy auburn hair swinging at my shoulders I feel a little sassier than my long blonde days. But strangely, I think it aligns with my personality better. I’ve never really been the graceful, lady-like girl who breezes into the room, pouring with elegance. I’m the girl who trips on the welcome mat and yells F**K at the top of her lungs, miraculously managing to recover before hitting the floor. So a sassier haircut seems to fit the bill nicely.
