I've been debating for a while whether to get my hair cut or not, and this morning I bit the bullet so to speak and went to Supercuts and got it done.

It's nice, but I lost well over 10 inches off of my original length. Put it this way, earlier today my hair was long and straight to about my waist, now it stops at the bottom of my neck above my shoulders.

My mum nearly cried when she saw me get up out of the chair in the hairdressers. Austin ( boyfriend ) seems completely indifferent at the moment. Craig ( Ex and best friend ) hasn't really seen it yet, he's coming over in around an hours time. I'm very worried as he loved my hair. Rikki ( Friend ) seems to love it and wouldn't stop going on about it and says he prefers it short, which threw me a bit. My best girl friend hasn't seen it yet, so I'm waiting for her opinion.

With all these mixed responses about it I'm now feeling a little unsure as to whether I made the right descision or not.

Shall I ask you? Or am i just being silly?

Most probably the latter. [Big Grin]


Also I went to a bike show at Cheshire Oaks today and well...it wasn't exactly much to write home about so that's why this sentence is ending....here.

I spent from 9 to 33 with varying lengths of hair -- short to medium. Right now I'm growing my hair because I want to wear a bun or braid (depending on the formality of the event) through my forties to death.

But yeah, having short hair was always great for getting up and going.

I've had my hair from one inch long to past my cheeky-bits. I prefer it to be about shoulder length because it's nice to tie it back and ignore it on a bad hair day. Short is too much work- everyone can tell if you haven't had a trim.

Though I'm free to get my hair long I find it uncomfortable, I always like chic cuts, always changing, I love surprises.
A good cut is a good cut no matter how long it is, both Annie Lennox and Demi Moore look great even with their heads shaved.

What an interesting topic, no I'm serious. I've been thinking about cutting mine as well, though I'm not sure if I have the face for it. Right now my hair sits near the upper part of the middle of my back when it's steightened, other wise when it is its normal crazy wavy/curly mess it's right below my shoulders. I'm think about cutting it right below my ears...wadda you guys think?

Ideas?

Try it short, LemonSmuggler- I suspect you can pull it off. It's up to you, though. I don't know your hair as well as you do. If it's shorter, will it be curlier?

Okay well, I've put an updated " current " picture of me on my profile if anyone wants to share an opinion...

And Lemonsmuggler, as I thought, would it be curlier and harder to handle if it was short...but then again, it would be soooo easy to straighten...or wax...I have an obsession with waxing mine already [Big Grin] .

I ask waaay too many questions and think about things too much. [crazy]

YMMV but I have really curly hair. I have been growing it out for almost 15 years. It only stopped being a royal PITA after it hit waist length when straightened out. I had it short as a teenager (My mom's choice, not mine, she thought her hair was easier to control short, but hers isn't as curly as mine. Also, she had as a teenager resolved herself to spending 45min to an hour on her hair a day, and I just don't care that much) It was a disaster. I couldn't control it, I couldn't put it in a pony tail, and as soon as the humidity went above 20% I was a giant frizzball. When it was behaving, it was mushroom shaped. I had to put about 3 pounds of gel in it a day to make it behave, so it was crunchy, and then I had to wash it every day to get the crunchy gel out, so it got dry, which made the frizziness worse. Now it hangs about waist length when it is dry, I only put hair goo in it for special occasions and most of the time it is in a braid and out of my way. I can only brush it when my hair is wet with conditioner, but it's heavy enough that unless it's really humid, it behaves reasonably well, even if it is frizzy. I wash it every other day, so it doesn't dry out as much and I will *NEVER EVER EVER EVER EVER* have my hair short again. The growing out the bangs/layering stage was awful. It does behave pretty well in 3 and a half foot increments however.

It all depends how much time you are willing to put into your hair, and if it is as curly as mine!

I got layers put in my waist length (well it was...) hair about six months ago and I regret it. It was easier to handle when it was all the same length.

As for cutting it? I don't see me doing that. I hate me in short hair.

Some people look great in it. And then there are those of us who look like crap.

Yours is just fine [Smile]

I have been growing my hair out for the last year or so (since leaving the soul-crushing 3-letter corporation). I have to say it is much easier to take care of when long. Right now it is just below my shoulders, but I am trying to let the front catch up, so it is all one length. The only problem is the heat. I am in the desert southwest, and it is hitting 105-110 now, and will be for the next 3-4 months [devil wand]

Eternal, I looked at your pic, I think your hair looks really nice. Try not to obsess about it too much, and really try not to worry too much about what others think of it. Good Luck.

I second the above - it looks good that way. Probably going to be a lot faster to deal with, too.

Looks good from the front - now turn round please and let's see your neck! I expect that's what your friend Rikki is so keen on - very under-rated erogenous zone, the neck. I love my wife's bobbed hair for many reasons, but that's one of them!

As the others have said - with hair you should just try it* - it'll grow back before you know it.

*Apart from bleaching it / using strong chemicals - it might not grow back then.

I actually just got my ears lowered on saturday. They took about five inches off, which leaves me with just enough to tie back and a fresh start as far as conditioning goes; my hair was beginning to get painfully dry and frizzy. I also bought some leave in conditioner, in order that I may keep my hair healthy.

I don't know how long I'll keep my hair this long, but for right now it works. It grows pretty fast, though it is very curly so it's hard to notice until it gets straight and long.

Either way, I'm just glad that I don't keep pulling my own hair when I toss and turn at night [Smile]

He he, not under rated in my opinion. Kiss my neck any time and I'm yours until you dare to stop. [hearts]

That could be a dangerous thing to admit around here, EL. Next thing you know you'll have certain, shall we say, less savory members of the forums hitting you up for "scientific evidence." [Wink]
