A few weeks ago, I chopped off my long-ish hair into a short/medium-length lob. Getting rid of my dead ends felt great, and I love my cut – it’s trendy, it’s fun, it’s simple to work with, and it looks a whole lot healthier. My main issue? My hair, which is layered, is now too short to do much with. Updos are difficult without a minimum of 100 bobby pins, buns are nearly impossible, and even my ponytails look stubby.
