I had to cut my hair again today - the ends were just getting too ratty. I just cut about 4" off a few weeks ago, so my hair now feels really, *really* short. Like, shorter than it has been in years... Though, its still quite long by most people's standards. On one hand, it's odd to have what feels like a bob cut, even though in reality it is still halfway down my back. On the other hand, I had a moment of impulse to actually chop it off at about my jawline, just for a change that would be noticeable to anyone other than me. :p

Don't do it!!!

Well, unless it's horribly horribly damaged. In college I finally caved to a friend's pressure to visit her stylist, and told him "cut off everything that's damaged". Presto, chin-length bob! There are photos. Or ask Mikey.

Yeah, I love my long hair and so have been able to fight off the impulse, but now and again, it just seems like a good idea to do something radical. Luckily, I'm not usually terribly good at following through on radical impulses and generally tell myself to sleep on it first.

I second the DON'T CHOP IT!

I haven't yet... it's just an impulse I get every few years and thus far have resisted. One of these years, I may not, though...

I get the same impulse every so often. I want a big change, but also remember the photos of the one time I did do short, many years ago. Oy.

Yeah, the reason my hair is the way it is is because in high school I permed it and hated it, colored it and hated it, and cut it and hated it. Since I've been about 16, the policy has been to essentially leave it the hell alone. :p

I occasionally get the impulse to cut mine to shoulder length. So far, I've managed to fight it off..

I know I'd regret it within the week, if not the hour, but it still is a powerful impulse!

Heh. I'm the opposite. I've pretty much always had short hair. I grew it out "long" a couple times (down to my shoulder blades) and it almost made me insane. I'd lie down on it, it'd get caught in things, it got in my face, it seemed as though my hairs were *everywhere*, especially in the shower drain (ew!)...

I'm waiting for the day when I'm brave enough to shave my head. :)

I like it long and, while the "short" length is still taking some getting used to, it is OBVIOUSLY in such better shape, I have to accept it as a good thing.
