July 2014

If you've been a follower of my blog since I started in 2011 you've probably seen me in almost all hair lengths I ever had. After having long or medium long hair all my childhood and youth, I went for a bob in 2009 and from then on my hair cuts became shorter and shorter until I reached this super cute pixie cut in 2011. Unfortunately that was about the time when ombré dyed hair became more and more popular and I didn't want to miss out on that trend! So I decided to grow my hair and it took me about 2 years to reach a good length to go ombré. Now it has been one year since I dyed my hair and it has grown another 10 cm since then. So most people would have said: "Yeah, that's it! I've reached my goal and I'm finally happy with my hairdo." Not me. Because in fact I still loved the ombré (which looked better now than in the beginning) but I started to get annoyed by my long hair. I thought the length wasn't really modern and some of my friends kept telling me that I looked better with shorter hair (which I am convinced of myself, too!). So without hesitating or shedding tears I got my hair cut last week. I really don't miss my long hair at all and I think this is the perfect length for me. It's cute, modern and I can still make a pigtail which is ideal for summer. What do you guys think? Do you like my new hairdo or do you think it's a pity I cut it? What do you think about the pixie I had in 2011?

Right now

Is anybody of you trying to grow their hair out? How long did it take for you to go from short to long?


  1. I love your hair in a bob best! It looks so perfect! I tried a bob before many years back but my hair is so frizzy when it's shorter so I'd probably never want it short again. My hair was at its longest the last few weeks at almost at my waist, below the chest definitely! I've taken about 4 inches off so it's still covering my chest! I just love having long hair. Not all girls can grow out long hair and have it look good without much maintenance and I feel like one of those lucky ones who grow it out and really love it and not just wants to chop it off! Thanks for sharing the photos, love seeing the hair journey!

  2. Wow! You had it super short!!! I love it in september 2012... and now ^^


  3. Ich finde deinen neuen Haarschnitt schön (und kann ihn hoffentlich bald live bewundern!). Auf den Bildern gefällt mir außerdem der Bob mit der Schleife aus 2012 supergut! Dieser gerade Schnitt sieht zu deinem Gesicht einfach klasse aus! Aber da bist du ja jetzt auch wieder ganz nah dran und auch wenn ich dein Ombré sehr hübsch fand, ist das kurze Haar doch irgendwie ein bisschen frecher und koketter ;)

  4. How gorgeous do you look with a bob!! I would love to cut my hair short but I'm too nervous! xx


  5. your hair looks gorgeous ! Its amazing the way it suits you at any length. I hate going to the hairstylist because everytime she cut off way too much and then I get home and cry haha. I have a strong connection with hair. :D

  6. Hi Carmen, I love your hair now and in July but i like also the first pic..

  7. Super schöner Haarschnitt! Steht dir ausgezeichnet, obwohl die langen Haare auch perfekt zu dir gepasst haben.

  8. Love this post - I drastically cut my hair last September and it's grown back (not quite as long but getting there). Something about short hair is just so cute! Love how this length looks on you!
    You've totally inspired me to do a post on my own hair growth journey. Thanks!

  9. Wow! I like the May 2012 cut best. It's funny that you made a post about this topic because yesterday I was thinking about cutting my hair again. It's really long and annoying me. So I'm thinking of going above chest first and then maybe shoulder length. Anyway, love your current look too. Whatever you are happy with, will look best on you!

  10. du Süße!
    super schöne Bilder! Die Frisur steht dir total!
    Hab einen tollen Tag!


  11. Randomly found your blog and I’d like to say that you have amazing design, beautiful photos and interesting posts! I’m also impressed by your style! Everything is perfect!

    would you like to follow each other?
    will be happy to see you in my blog)


  12. You look great on the last photo, but I think that even those longer hair or that pixie weren't bad. You look beautiful in every hairstyle:)
    I had hair exactly like you on the last photo - like 2 years ago. Now they are about bra-strap lenght and I want them longer and longer. I can't help myself but I still feel like my hair are way too short, haha.
    Have a lovely day, kisses

  13. deine neue frisur sieht so schön aus!!!! ich persönlich finde sie sogar am schönsten von all deinen vorherigen frisuren! der pixie gefällt mir nicht so... finde deine jetzige länge steht dir richtig, richtig gut!!!
    ich hab meine haare letztes WE auch abgeschnitten, ungefähr dieselbe länge wie du - einen tick länger. hab es selbst gemacht. meine waren einfach so trocken vom urlaub und sehr sehr ausgedünnt. und sie haben mich einfach genervt^^ obwohl ich 2 jahre lang gezüchtet habe. nun sind 30cm ab!! und es fühlt sich sooooooooo so gut an! ich lade bald mal ein video auf youtube hoch von meiner haarschneideaktion :)

    viel spaß mit deiner neuen frisur!!!! superschön siehst du aus!!!!

    liebe grüße,
