On the subject of hair cutting





I am getting really bored and impatient with my hair. I have been growing it out for years now and it's finally where I've wanted it to be, but now I feel like it's too long, definitely damaged and kinda boring. I am thinking about cutting 3-4 inches off, but then I see photos of Kennedy and Caroline and I tell myself "NO! DON'T DO IT!"

I think it's more that I am generally dissatisfied with my over all appearance that I am looking to change something - anything. Hair seems to be the easiest and fastest way to fulfill that need. Just chop off some hair! Change accomplished in a matter of minutes! What I really should be doing is running, which will hopefully change the things I really want - ie my body.

What do you think? Cut some off or wait it out?

Don't do it! I feel like you are a long hair person - whereas I am a short hair person...

Noo dont do it! I felt the exact same way last summer and I'm still regretting my decision, its taking me ages to grow it back! long hair is so much easier to style, you just wake up and don't really have to do anything whereas short hair needs product and straightening etc..

youre right olivia! i really like not having to bow dry my hair... ever. it basically looks the same even if i do! i think i just need a more significant trim this time around... maybe two inches instead of one?
