When women chop off their split ends and get rid of their fried locks, they also snip away their troubles and frustrations. And when your loyal stylist happens to be a good listener, that’s just cherry on the cake.
So get a headstart on your personal spring cleaning with a hot new hairdo.
Every woman wants to get a pixie, but it takes an incredibly awesome woman to take a chance on one, pull it off well and not care about her husband’s eventual dying libido.
Pobs and Shabs
The ‘shab’ is a shaggy rocker bob while the ‘pob’ is a variation of a bob which was made popular by Victoria Beckham back in the day. This year, a lot of actors have gotten variations of these quintessential haircuts and made it their own.
If you’re too petrified to get rid of your tresses, then embrace your femininity even more and make your hair look longer and bigger by adding extensions, a whole lot of hairspray and backcombing.
