Last year, I cut my hair short for the first time in like 20 years! I had always been a fan of long hair because I felt like it provided more versatility when it comes to everyday styling. But thanks to Jennifer Lawrence's super chic long bob, she convinced me to finally let go of my long locks and sport a bob (with bangs to boot!). I blogged about that here. I loved rocking the short hair for a while because I felt empowered and the timing was fortunate because a lot of famous celebrities were rocking the short 'do.

When my hair length started the re-growth phase though, I admit I had trouble keeping up with it. I did not know what to do with it. It was not long enough to be tied up into a ponytail or a bun. The bangs, as it grew, became seriously annoying. It kept blocking my eye (I had a side bang) and it was difficult to get it out of the way. Eventually, I switched to wearing buns (when it grew a few inches longer) with headbands just so I can get it out of the way. But as I dealt with the awkward re-growth phase, I was tempted to cut it short again. The boyf, though, had different ideas since he said he missed my long hair and I kind of agreed with him - I was longing for my long hair, too. Hence, I have decided to grow it back so I can get a new color and maybe curl it.
Thankfully, I discovered some excellent hairstyle ideas from Julianne Hough. I refer to her now as my celebrity hair icon. Seriously, she rocks some seriously gorgeous 'dos.. all. the. time! Her long bobs are chic and sassy! I wish I had her hairstylist! Check out below some of my favorite hairstyles she has sported over the years as they had been my go-to for inspiration on styling my own.
