When I was a little girl I had this traumatic era where I had really short hair (it was around age 9) so everybody thought I was a boy for a really long time. I got so upset that I vowed to always have long hair and long hair only. From ages 14 to 21 that was actually the case, but since I have curly and frizzy hair it was so hard to maintain the proper care and style. Besides I started to feel that it didn’t suit me that well, however I could never trust the hair dressers (I still can’t). So, on a looong night of studying for the last finals ever of my law education in 2008, I snapped and cut my own hair into a bob. I was so bored of my long hair I didn’t even think about how I would style the shorter bob or if it will fit me. To be honest it was a disaster for a couple of months – and the following 3 years where I waited for my bangs to grow the same lenght (my hair grows incredibly slow) but since then I am so in love with the long bob that even if it’s a few centimeters long on my shoulder I cut them and turn them into a bob again.
