Hair | Choppy Bob

Karlie Kloss haircut

I need a haircut. For reals. I haven’t gotten one since just before my friend Aimee’s wedding in November of 2011.

I bring it up from time to time and am all “Hmmm, I should really got a haircut. It’s been awhile.” But it hasn’t been until this week that I feel like I need one. It’s just getting in my way all day long.

The worst is in bed. One of the occupants of whatever bed I’m sleeping in inevitably rolls over and pulls my hair in the process (keep your head out of the gutter, people. I play musical beds with my kids all week long).

There’s also the fact that my new easy breezy go-to is clipping it up on top of my head as soon as I wake up and not thinking about it again. There are usually wild strands hanging everywhere and it sometimes slips into a sideways 80s look unbeknownst to me. My 6 year old has compared me to Medusa.

Honestly, it’s not that terrible. But I’m definitely in a rut. I need something new and Karlie Kloss is calling to me.

It’s nothing too dramatic. Just a short, choppy bob with texture. Once I saw it, I noticed that I was pinning a bunch of similar looks.

I think I might love it. It’s fun and simple and seems to be relatively low maintenance. What do you think? Is there a particular hairstyle you’re loving right now?

  1. I love these! You should definitely do it. And post pictures when you do! I think I’m going to have to add this Karlie Kloss cut to my list of possible ‘dos.

  2. Yes. Yes, yes, yes. I’m making an appointment to get my hair chopped off too! I got it cut some months ago to just above my armpits, but now I think it’s too long! We’ll all be rocking Karlie Kloss! 😉

  3. Ahhh, I kind of LOVE this. I’ve really been wanting to do something kind of drastic (my hair has gotten rather long, so this would be pretty drastic for me), and this is exactly what I had in mind in my head.. but didn’t know how to put it down. Maybe during the summertime I’ll get the courage.. I think you’d look gorgeous with it though 😀

    1. Thanks Kristina! I think I’m going to show my hairstylist my Pinterest board with all of these options and see what she thinks will work best. I just can’t decide how short to go! Eeeep!
