I am finally getting my hair cut and colored in a few weeks since finding out I was pregnant back in April of 2009. I was a freak about getting color in my hair during pregnancy so needless to say, my hair needs some SERIOUS help. I have been in the process of growing out the wedge bob since about the same time. My hair is now in that in between phase where I can continue to grow it out or get another bob like cut. This is where I would love your help. Should I grow it out like the second picture below? Or get a bob like cut again in the first picture? I am also thinking of getting side swept bangs like I had in the second picture. Ease of use is not an issue for me here because my hair is so thick, even a shorter cut doesn't really reduce much prep time for me. Longer hair is actually better because I can easily throw it up in a pony tail where I can't with shorter hair.
