silvia-gaitan

I’m getting ready to go see my hairdresser. It’s time to do another keratin treatment. Now that summer is coming to a close, my hair is like a wild untamed nest. It’s growing!

I’ve been flirting with the idea of going short for a few months now (I have a whole bunch of inspiration images for this one here, if you want to take a look) but I also want to grow it back out, like the beautiful Silvia in this photo. Or maybe I’ll just get a bob again?

Yeah, in short, I just don’t know. What do you think?

    Un carré court ? Bon compromis plutôt que la coupe très courte ! Bon, tu me diras, c’est ce que tu avais déjà fait mais bon…
    Quant aux cheveux longs, j’ai abandonné récemment, arrive un stade où on craque, sont longs à coiffer, durs à démêler, sont nuls après avoir fait un chignon… Bref…
    J’ai les cheveux courts, je veux des cheveux longs, j’ai les cheveux longs, je veux une coupe courte… Comme on dit #KillMeNow

    Bon courage en tout cas et peu importe ce que tu feras tu seras divine comme d’hab Garance !

    Happy Friday <3

    Try an asymmetric bob. Longer on the front, shorter on the back. You looked sublime in the photos for Intothegloss.com

  • Meghan August, 23 2013, 9:06

    Agreed! Your hair looked amazing in that ITG shoot! I also support the short look…but I would support whatever your heart told you. If your heart is not sure…maybe it would be worthwhile to wait to decide until it is…

    I love your hair shorter I think if you can pull if off why not keep it like that. You can always grow it out later. The shorter hair always looks amazing with scarves and big turtleneck sweaters.
    Either way your hair looks great.

    Ah, the great old debate–to cut it off or keep it growing?! When I find myself in that dilemma, I usually don’t cut it off and just change the texture a bit. Like have them add in some layers or maybe add some bangs. You might regret cutting it short…especially with the fall and winter approaching!

    Love the girl in the picture, I think that style would look great on you and the Keratin treatment will help with the frizz.

    While many will disagree, this is my personal hair philosophy: I grow it out really long now when I’m younger, because there will be plenty of time for bobs in my 50′s and beyond. (While I think everyone can look good with a shorter ‘do, I don’t see many long hairstyles on maturing women that appeal to me.)

    I may be the only one that thinks this I’m the whole entire world, but shorter hair requires more upkeep! With long hair you can look great in a ponytail. With short hair you have to style it so that it isn’t pointing everywhere.

    I completely agree! I got a surprise short haircut a couple of months ago (as in I asked for 2 inches off and got 5+ chopped) and I haven’t had a good hair day since because I’m awful at styling it. Can’t wait til mine grows a bit more.

    I went very short 3 years ago….. I had what I call a sexy Mohawk……. I quickly realized the maintenance was hell!…….. every 2 weeks spending 3 hours in the hair salon was just not cool!….. then the worst was to come……. the period where its too long for the style but too short for anything else!….. at times I looked like a squirrel had crawled on my head and died!……. I couldn’t wear hats as I just looked bald so I invested in lots of scarfs and took to looking like a pirate most days!……… I enjoyed the 6 months that I had it…….. but never again would I go so short again………. that moment when your having a bad hair day and you cant wear a ponytail………. its hurtful!…(even I had to laugh at that!, I remember the disappointment all too well! ) how about you let your hair grow?… get some layers and then leave it too do its own thing…. alternatively invest in a cute pixy wig….. wear just for fun!… that way there is zero damage.xx

    La photo est magnifique!! Ses cheveux!! Mais c’est fou, ils sont trop beaux!!! Et j’adore son top.

    Pour ton impasse capillaire, je peux te comprendre mes cheveux sont grichous, épais, longs et probablement pire que les tiens. Le conseil que je peux te donner est quel est/était ton objectif premier?? Les garder long et dompter la bête ou avoir les cheveux courts car tu les as déjà eu comme cela ou tout simplement tu en rêves. Si tu optes pour les cheveux courts au moins tu iras jusqu’au bout de ton idée et par la suite tu pourras passer à autre chose, le cas échéant.

    Mais je me rappelle de la photo prise par Scott ce printemps, et ton carré te faisais vraiment bien, tu étais très jolie.

    Ahhhh le dilemme…

    Haha! I love it! I keep looking at my “Halloween wig” (to quote Tina Fey) hair and know it’s time for hairdresser help! In fact, after seeing the lovely photo of Heathermary Jane in the “Black, white and red” post, I think about a short and stylish change. You know it’s bad when someone says they didn’t recognize your “blond” hair (dark roots!) up in a bun. Wait! It thought I was looking chic and cute!??!!!! Instead, it has defaulted to a “hausfrau-ish” style. So sad. Kids back to school……hair overhaul! Can’t wait!

    You show me i am not alone to make a big fuss of going to the hairdresser : do i cut ? do i let them grow ? is the hairdresser good enought to beallowed to cut my hair ? what if i regret ? what if the hairdresser really was NOT got enough i do not want to look like all these girls with bad hairdressers i see in the street ? …. Talk about dentists, hairdressers are worse.

    Good luck. And i liked you hair when you came out of your last treatment, suits you so well.

    I’ve had short hair for years and love it. I think you look great since you had your Keratin treatment and cut it. I think it’s only a natural progression that since you got a little brave, you’re ready to get a lot brave! Every so often I think I want to grow my hair, but then I realize my short hair is one of the things that makes me stand out from the crowd. I found a stylist who specializes in short hair, so not only does he give me a great cut, he sends me off with the right products to make styling easy…because I have zero patience. I would ask your stylist’s opinion what they think is best. I mean, they’re the trained professional, right? Can’t wait to see the results!

    So funny, I’m going to the hairdresser today in fact. After I graduated from college I went drastically short and have been experiencing something of a conflicted relationship with my hair ever since– agonizing whether this shape or that shape suits me better, and sometimes ending up with **gasp** MOM hair. I’m not sure if this is something you’d go for, but it seems that every time I go in for another chop, I try to channel one of Eva Fontanelli’s coifs. I can’t decide which one I prefer!

    I think go with whatever you feel most comfortable in! I know there is ALWAYS the debate about long hair v. short hair, with the pro-short argument that short hair means you are a confident woman. I think that is ridiculous! Hair doesn’t necessarily define who we are, it could just be our mood at the moment. Whatever your hair is like is your decision, so whatever you feel like…just do it!!! And remember, it will always grow back out so don’t stress too much :)

  • Cassandra August, 23 2013, 11:41 / Reply

    ahhhh – me too! me too! Been seriously considering cutting off my long locks – ever since seeing how amazing Robin Wright looks in her short hair cut on House of Cards!

    I’ve done it twice before and I found the change amazing. yes, I found more upkeep and I tended to wear more make up because i feared I might look like a boy (not really but I felt less feminine somehow without the long hair).

    But i was delighted that some people didn’t even recognize me! My long hair was so much a part of me.

    I also did it both those times in a bit of rebellion, once after a break up and once after a lost job. “If I couldn’t control those parts of my life, I could at least have control over my hair!” – kind of thinking. I had moments of mourning, but it did grow back.

    Here is my pinterest board of hair envy – http://pinterest.com/cassmetz/hair/ (and yes now I realize most of them are long dos!)

    Have fun today. I can’t wait to see what you decide. Love, Cass

    I’m a regular visitor of your blog and i LOOOOVE it. because my hair is like yours i can completely understand and feel with you every time you write about your hair! please don’t cut it pixie short, you’ll have to go to the hairdresser every 2 weeks to really keep it looking good, and if you want to let them grow again it’ll be a nightmare!!!! (I have a friend who has pixie short hair, curls and looks absolutely fabulous but only the first two weeks after a visit to the hairdresser and styled!!) my advice is: let it grow long again, you’ll have more possibilities. just look at all your pictures with different hairstyles and decide (easy: google your name, go on images and you’ll be able to decide)…i think you look best with long hair, although you can do anything!!!

    Les cheveux courts ont la faculté de rajeunir le visage.

    Growing your hair out long might be a good thing because as your hair grows it gets heavier and the curls sorta drop. Well thats how my hair and my mothers goes. My hair is quite curly like yours too, I grow mine down to my waist and find it easier to manage weirdly. I find having shorter hair a bit of a hassle because you have to keep styling it and try to keep it looking perfect. Anyway its totally up to you! Do what you feel is right. And if you go short it will always grow back ^_^

    Bob! I’ve had long hair and currently a very short style. But nothing beats a bob. It’s cool, classic, has edge and is, as someone else mentioned above, great with heavy knits, a scarf, beanie, hats….the whole enchilada! I am always a big supporter of trying new hair styles. I am 22 now and have come to the conclusion that I am letting it grow again to my beloved blunt bob :)

  • Jane with the noisy terrier August, 23 2013, 12:40 / Reply

    Here’s the deal, my dear. We BOTH know that if you grow your hair out long again, you’re not going to wear it loose and wavy, you’re going to revert back to THE BUN. Now, there’s nothing wrong with THE BUN, in fact, you have beautiful bone structure that really works well with your hair pulled off your face. But…and there’s always a “but”…wouldn’t you feel as if you were back-sliding a wee bit? So here’s my thought — keep the bob length but maybe mix it up a bit. Long bangs? Layers? Choppy ends? Daria in the Celine ads glamourous waves? Arizona Muse messy bedhead? Go online right now and book an appointment with David Mallett for when you’re next in Paris. He gave me the best haircut ever (and since he was ill on the day of my appointment earlier this month, the fabulous Fanny gave me a rockin’ do as well). And for those of you who are afraid that long hair is only for the young, take a spin around the Advanced Style website!

    I would go for Sylvia’s or Catherine’s hair styles, if I were you. A few months ago I cut my hair from a long bob really short and dyed it platinum blonde. It is nice for a month or so, but now I am waiting for it to grow long again and I am back to my natural dark blonde colour too. Plus with the short hair I have to spend more time and effort styling it in the mornings..

    If you want to cut it off and you want to grow it out then go for the bob, but not the short short, because the short short is extreme and takes forever to grow, but the bob, there is a change and its shorter and a little fun and sexy and you can still play with it…unless you are ready for the extreme. Short hair is gorgeous on women, but the woman has to love it and be clear and fearless.

    I have wavy thick coarse long hair. I used to have a bob. The secret for me staying sane with my long hair is the braid. Braid my hair when still slightly damp. Sleep on it. Then the waves are manageable the next day. I get tons of compliments. Then a day later, I can straight iron my hair and wear it straight for a few days. Then wash and braid again.

    I’ve had short hair for almost six years now, first short (mid- neck) bob with bangs, got loads of compliments from everybody; two years ago had it cut into a pixie with bangs and still loads of compliments from everybody… I also liked it, but I looked the same every single day! Plus spent hours styling it and had to go the the hairdresser max every 5 weeks. The worst part was when I decided to let it grow and it reached the half ear lenght…I looked like one of those medieval painting young boys with an idiotic expression (and I have my passport pic to remind me of how stupid I looked for the next four and a half years!!!!!). Now a have a cute bob (with bangs) just below my chin than looks really sexy and for which I keep on getting compliments but it still needs loads of maintenance. I loooove short hair, I find it so much more interesting than long hair but it is such a hassle and as many other readers have written above, it is crazy to have a bad hair day because you can’t just tie it into a pony tail. Garance, by short I mean from half neck up or shorter. You looked fabulous with your soft, not so short bob, which is a totally different story from mine, so go for it!

    Même réflexion sur mon blog il y a quelques jours, j’hésite moi aussi à me faire un carré court. La question est, vais-je le regretter ? Et mes cheveux mi-longs, vont-ils me manquer ?

    Bref, je ne peux pas t’aider en somme…

    Tu étais tellement contente de ton carré : pourquoi ne pas le porter une saison de plus ?
    Il te va à ravir… et ça te laissera le temps de la réflexion, si vraiment tu as envie de changer, non ?

    My hair is just like yours in terms of texture etc. I had long hair and always always wore it up so I got fed up and cut it like a bob about 8months ago and felt like a new person. Wohoo.
    Now I am also longing for long hair…but realistically long hair will never look like it does on the lovely girl in the photo as it does on me…I’m just a dreamer haha.
    Would you ever wear it like that if it was long? I like you in short :).
    Good luck with the decision :)

    Carré court c’est le top ou court, surtout pas les cheveux longs sinon tu vas recommencer à faire des chignons tous les jours..

    Long! Long layers with your colour ,texture and wave, very feminine and nice counterpoint to your style ….also more versatile

    Mes cheveux sont très très fins, je ne peux donc pas les laisser pousser car ils s’usent très vite et se cassent dès qu’ils dépassent la longueur des épaules. Donc Je porte un carré très court, nuque rasée. J’aime bien,m ais ce n’est pas vraiment un choix.
    Alors Garance, si toi tu as le choix, porte-les longs. Il y a tant de belles coiffures à réaliser avec des cheveux longs et bouclés, pas forcément difficiles
    Belle journée

    Cut it as short and as radical as you’ve ever dreamt of cutting it, so in the future you would not wonder if it would have been good or bad on you, so in the future you new what you really want, because you can be sure only after you had both long and short hair, and you already had long, so now you should give a go to a short haircut.
    I have a round face and I cut my hair really shor by MYSELF, because my hairdresser refused to do it, saying that it would look bad on me. After a took the matter into my own hands and did a really shor haircut I get so much compliments and it seems really funny to me, that before I cut every one said it would look terrible and now they are like “wow, I love your haircut!”

    Cette photo est très proche de la chevelure de mes rêves. J’hésite aussi à me refaire un keratin treatment, ou un xtenso de l’Oréal, plus agressif, mais au résultats plus proches de ce que je souhaite. D’après les photos que tu nous montres, les cheveux mi-long/long, te vont très bien. Quant à une coupe courte… c’est très courageux avec des cheveux bouclés!

  • Marie August, 24 2013, 9:04 / Reply

    Un carré!!
    J’ai eu le même dilemme ce matin en allant chez le coiffeur! Et j’ai opté pour une coupe au carré! Les boucles ressortent plus sur un carré! Et c’est moins d’entretien quotidien!
    Il est vrai qu’une belle chevelure , comme sur la photo, c’est beau . Mais moi je finis par les accrocher…
    Donc un carre!

    Si tu es prête à laisser un coiffeur te couper les cheveux comme lui il le pense je te donnerai le nom d’un magicien à Milan! Un bon coiffeur c’est quelqu’un qui vous sent qui veut vous rendre plus que belle! Je l’ai trouvé à Milan cet homme! J’ai passé du long au court en perdant 10 ans en étant plus que belle et le comble c’est qu’avec ça même en sortant de la piscine c’est beau! Un bon coiffeur aime les cheveux et les comprend! Tout le monde n’est pas toujours prêt à se laisser faire;) et voilà on partage ses adresses?

  • Valentina August, 24 2013, 9:59

    Qui est donc ce coiffeur milanais ? Je rêve de trouver la coupe parfaite, pourrait-il m’aider ? :)

  • Valentina August, 24 2013, 10:20 / Reply

    Garance, j’ai les cheveux bouclés comme les tiens, et plus je les coupe plus j’ai du mal à les discipliner. Les laisser pousser a permis d’allonger les boucles et de trouver plus de manières de les coiffer. En attendant, je pense que la coupe de Karen Elson t’irait très bien !

  • Svetlana August, 24 2013, 10:58 / Reply

    I would agree with girls who say that you’ll have plenty of time to enjoy the bob style when you’re in 50′s. you look so young and beautiful with long hair. But it’s up to you to decide – what’s closer to your heart!

  • Meredith August, 24 2013, 11:21 / Reply

    It’s the ever-present debate isn’t it? I myself go through this on a regular basis.

    My advice – shoulder length or longer. I love both Karen Elson’s style and Thandie’s style on your Pimterest board. Plus, you really rock the bun, which is both beautiful and carefree.

    I think you will regret cutting it short.

    I agree with one commenter about the reality of growing your hair out and then just putting it up in a bun. Yes short hair needs to be maintained in a way that long hair doesn’t, but short hair at least forces you to put it in a style daily vs long hair. I think your face will really pop and just give more people reason to take note of how much of a light you are in the world…(without that sounding corny).

    Moi j’ai les cheveux très longs (mais très lisses, j’avoue). Je dois dire que les cheveux longs, c’est quand même super bien. On peut faire pas mal de coiffures, quoi qu’on dise, et changer de tête assez facilement. Toutes les autres filles te regardent avec envie (eheh!), les mecs avec des yeux de merlan (eheh!)… y a quand même un truc avec les cheveux longs. Après, je trouve un carré longs super chic et super sexy, et j’avoue que des fois, je me prends à y rêver…
    Mais je trouve les cheveux longs très élégants et féminins, et je déteste ces histoires comme quoi passé un certain âge, faudrait les couper! Ma mère a 65 ans et ses cheveux sont magnifiques, elle les laisse pousser et c’est très bien!

    perso, étant donné ta texture de cheveux, je pense qu’une courte garçonne t’irai très bien, bien lookée, peu d’entretien (un bon laquage arrière pour les soirées…) mais au bout de quelques semaines, tu vas peut être commencer à regretter la sensualité de cheveux plus longs parce que là, on peux jouer sur du lâché de cheveux, du chignon pratique, de la queue de cheval, tresse mermaid basse de côté, raie de côté etc…
    bref cheveux longs…?

    Cut it off Garance! don’t be so gutless; everyone should try a short crop at least once. I have had really short hair for most of my adult live but have now grown it into a bob. Strangely it is less styling than the short style which I hadn’t expected and I do like the look of it but I HATE the feel of hair flopping on my face. I think it is pointless to grow your hair and then be constantly tying or pinning it back, I put it behind my ears but it doesn’t stay there. i loathe the feel of wet hair on my face after i wash it and I hate having it flying about when i’m outside or doing sport/yoga. I will persist with the bob for a while but the temptation is very strong to just cut it off and get rid of the horrible fluffy stuff!

  • Nicolette August, 26 2013, 11:16 / Reply

    Go for the same lovely haircut as before or if you must change it : choose ” EASY COOL HAIR ” in the collection of pics in your link.
    This pic shows a hairstyle that is definitely a good choice for your hair type, your lifestyle, your personality and complimentary to the clothes you love to wear.

    If you have a boyfriend who does not love short hair on you , rather do not have it super short !
    Super short pixie and gamine styles can make some women look unexpectedly more masculine or clumsy or even heavy looking !
    Here is the best barometer : If you are fearless about having short hair it probably suits you and you have the confidence to pull it off . On the other hand, those women who are always so coy about cutting it short as if it’s such a big deal , probably these women know somewhere in their hearts instinctively that their hair suits them best longer and makes them feel sexiest / prettiest/ most confident that way.

    Alors franchement Garance moi je te conseille de tenir bon et de carrément les laisser pousser.
    j’ai le même genre de cheveux que toi et la dernière fois que je suis passé à NYC j’ai compris un truc: Il faut juste arrêter les dégradés sur cheveux bouclés. Il faut arrêter de laisser les coiffeurs s’amuser avec le volume de tes cheveux pour sculpter dedans. Stop!
    Le dégradé ça fait gonfler, ça demande beaucoup d’entretien et au final on a l’air d’un petit caniche.
    J’ai tenté le carré mais là pareil il faut qu’il soit hyper bien structuré pour que ça ait de la gueule, c’est pénible et frustrant.
    Quand au cheveux courts, tu as la vie devant toi pour les porter courts quand il n’auront plus la même vitalité.
    Moi je laisse pousser sans dégrader, et leur simple poids dès qu’ils ont dépassé mes épaules suffit à les garder en place.
    Après je mets des produits Aveda pour qu’ils restent beaux entre deux shampoings et basta!
    La clé c’est le poids.
    Bisou

    Je dis COURT (même si on voit bcp de cheveux longs avec le retour du grunge cet hiver, c’est beau les cheveux longs, on se sent femme, un peu déesse, la plupart des hommes aiment les cheveux longs mais à moins de se faire des coiffures sublimes, c’est boring à la longue;).
    Je te vois bien avec les cheveux juste en dessous du menton, un peine ondulé (pas curly). En ce moment, je suis un peu obsédée par les barrettes et autres accessoires de cheveux et je trouve aussi ça super sympa avec des cheveux courts.
