My good friend Simply Nutmeg has had a genius-level brainstorm. You know how we’re all awesome? And how there are times we really want to steal each other’s post but aren’t sure if we should? Well, she has devised Filch It Friday to make it legal for us to do so. And I am so honored she chose me to filch from for her first go ’round. Of course, in true Meg style, she wrote a post that was way better than mine ever was, or could be. Smooches, Meg.
As for my filching I know there will be no improving on the original. If you haven’t been paying attention, Whoorl does hair make-overs every Thursday and she borders on being a hair savant. She is crazy good at this and I don’t understand why TLC doesn’t call her up and put her pretty face right there next to Stacie, Clinton and Carmandie. Is that show still on? It should be cause they rock! (Yeah, let’s not forget I am cable-less, which makes my references somewhat dated. I can’t tell you how many emails I received after the Rob Lowe/Snow White incident where no one knew what the hell I was talking about).
OK. Err. Right. Back to Filching Whoorl Hair Thursday.
– is of a fine texture, but has lots of it (usually has to have a bunch of texturizing for this style)
– is very straight and soft
– she is very happy with the color
– she is open to going shorter or longer, just not long-long (it all breaks off)
– she is open to bangs
– will not use a curling iron or curling aparati, but is kick-ass with a brush and hairdryer
– hair will not take a perm, it’s a waste of money
Here’s the thing. I am ready for a change. I have had this longer in the front, shorter in the back bob for quite a while and I am bored. More so, I am sick of the pointy slab in front turning into a weird curl when it gets longer (it is starting to show itself in the pic above).
About 8 years ago, I had the Gwyneth Paltrow Sliding Doors cut and really liked it, except I was 40 pounds heavier (that was prior to the diabetes diagnosis) and I didn’t like how fat my neck looked in the back. I would post pictures of it, but didn’t I just say I was 40 pounds heavier??? Don’t you ever listen??? So, just in general, let’s all remember even with the weight loss, I am still a big German girl with big German bones and while I love the short cuts, I am still not sure I could carry off a pixie cut with the adorableness that Susan from Friday Playdate does.
I also can carry bangs well, and another way I have considered going more shoulder length with layers and bangs.
Basically any advice, links, photos and all around Whoorlness would be most appreciated!

P.S. Don’t forget to do your own filching and let Nutmeg know about it!
UPDATE: Apparently you all want me to leave my hair exactly as it is. WAAAAHHH! Except the people sending me emails with photo ideas for styles. Here are some of my favorites (in no particular order), thoughts?
