I don't like doing stuff with my hair, so I'm always on the look out for extremely low-maintenance hair styles, the sort of thing I can wash and leave. I can't remember when I last owned a hair dyer; like jeans that's something everyone else seems to think is essential but actually it's perfectly possible to get along without. I always loved my 20s bob when I had it years ago, though it was a bit of a faff getting it cut every month. Also, and there's no avoiding the truth, now I'm five stone heavier, a blunt fringe just makes my round face look rounder.
I've got into 60s looks by accident and have been mulling over hair to match. Browsing 1960s hairdos on Pinterest, I came across shots of people like Sandie Shaw, and realised that a 1920s do didn't have to mean either a towering updo or a Quant bob; I could have a shoulder length 'do.
You know who also had shoulder-length hair?
(No, not John Steed!)
I did cut my hair myself with a pair of shousehold scissors, so it could definitely do with some tidying up, but I'm really happy with the length. Now I just need to work out how to get the ends to turn up, a la Emma Peel. What do you reckon, would wide curling tongs do the job?
