My hairdresser of the past 12 years has moved to Cyprus. I am bereft, of her serialised company and wisdom as well as her skills.
How does one grow out a 20s bob, without it looking rubbish?

You could keep the bob and get a new hairdresser?

I could, but I'm thinking of growing it out anyway. This length is a pain for Victorian costume.
The two statements in my post are connected by proximity but not by logic. ;-)

Is this Kathy? Gosh.
I have found a lovely new hairdresser's place right by me, though now that is not near to you. Oh rats.

Yes, she's been asked to manage a new salon in Larnaca, by an Italian-based haircare organisation. It's a fabulous opportunity for Kat(hy) and she's getting the recognition she deserves. And obviously a huge betrayal. ;-)

There are some near me too, but Kathy is so good I was prepared to do the half hour drive.

Oh I hear you. I was gutted that it wasn't really feasible to go to her on a regular basis. Not driving made it a big pain for me.

She so deserves it.

I'll have to tell my mum, maybe they can have a clandestine meet up at the border. :)

Maybe have some layers put in? The jet black bod is tres cool though.

S likes it - having what he describes as "cartoon wife".

Seconded on the layers. I had a shortish layered cut done a while back and it lasted a good six months of growing out looking pretty respectable (I can't really claim it still does, but I am skint!). Sad to say, I bought some hairdressing mags and picked a couple of pictures I liked which I took along to the hairdresser. I have an abiding fear of hairdressers but this approach seemed to work.

Fringes are all the rage at the moment. Annoyingly, as my hair doesn't do good fringe. I've always been quite jealous of your bob.

Are you planning to retain the fringe? My pal who has similar hair wore a sort of bun, tidied up into a neat round with a false bit, while she was growing hers. I could probably explain this better with hand signals.

I'm not sure I could cope with growing the fringe out. I've had it forever.

Could you go to longer bob with turned under ends? Am occasionally jealous of people with very straight hair, but less so that used to be.
Or you could wear a wig for Victorian stuff?

Hair woe indeed! Lordy, but what shall we do?
