Looking at These 32 Blonde Bobs Made Me Cut My Hair

Being experimental with your hair doesn't necessarily mean that you have to go all-out with new hues, statement fringing or lashings of layers. Often, the simplest switches make the most impact. Right now, with the changing season, it seems everyone is busy dreaming of, and mood boarding potential styles.

As changing your hair can be a big decision, I thought it might be worth sharing my recent experience in hope it might inspire some of you. You see, I recently chopped off my lengthy blonde hair to join the bob/long bob brigade. A few months back, after researching for a feature on blunt bob hairstyles, I convinced myself to go for the chop, which was masterfully created by session stylist Jenn Linton of Linton & Mac.
