I’m throwing in the towel!!
After attempting to grow out my chin-length hair for 7 months. I’m getting it cut off today. I hate (hatehatehate!) having long hair!! Why did I ever think I needed to look like someone else on my wedding day??
Has anyone else called it quits and prayed that your stylist has short-hair talent for your wedding?

Yes, yes, yes! I lasted two months before running back to my stylist and begging her to cut off my extra hair. I just look so much better with chin-length hair, and I knew I couldn’t stand having long hair for an entire year in the name of having a “bridal updo.” And on the day of the wedding, my stylist did a great job — I looked great, and most importantly, I looked like me at my best!

ME!! My first wedding I grew my hair out just to have it up and I hated it!! It’s not me. This time I keep it as is because I love my short hair and so does FI!! However, my stylist told me I can’t cut it for the next SIX months if I want to curl it because it does need a little bit of lenght. I have my hair trial next month…which will be 2 months since a cut and we’ll see how it goes!

I’m actually a long-hair person, but I think short-haired brides are so chic and different. Sometimes I wish I had short hair so that I could curl it and wear a cute head band or something.
I think this is a classic case of always wondering if you should do something different. When it comes down to it though, just be yourself on your wedding day! 🙂

I had a pixie cut all through high school but started growing it out my senior year for college. So I’ve had longish hair since then. However, I think short hair is so chic and adorable, especially when it’s paired with girly things. So I’m completely jealous. If short hair is just you, go with it!

I am also growing my hair out, but I think I am a long haired girl at heart…I go through the phases of where I get frustrated with my long hair and then decide it’s time for a chop. Then of courses months later I begin to miss my long flowy locks and I then attempt to grow it out again. I just hate the in between stage where it begins to look ratty…4 years ago I got the chop 12in off and then it grew back to the middle of my back, then got the chop last November now waiting for it to grow grow grow!

I like that you’re going back to “normal” for your Big Day…you’re right – you should be totally YOU all the way. If that means a bride with short hair, then that’s what it means. Don’t listen to the industry or anyone else tell you that you have to have long hair to be a bride…

My hair has gotten about 5-6 inches shorter in the last couple months. I know it’s normal to try and grow it out before the wedding, but I wanted to try something new and I must say that I love my hair now. I’m still not sure about what the heck I’m going to do with it for my wedding but maybe I’ll just leave it down.

I know! Mine is killlllling me! It was about an inch below my chin when I started growing it out last November. Now it’s past my shoulders. It’s kind of fun trying out new up-dos, but most days it’s just an annoyance. I only have 1.5 months left – I hoping I can deal with it.

I think it’s totally cool that you’re just going for your normal look on the wedding day. I don’t know why there’s this pressure to have long hair on our weddings. Short hair can be totally elegant and pretty. 🙂

I’ve been growing mine out for two or three years, it comes down to my hips at this point and it drives me nuts! All for this stupid wedding, lol. I can’t wait to hack it all off, it’s going to be shoulder length when I’m done. Fiance will be traumatized but I’m sorry, long hair can be a pain!
Short hair is definitely so fun and flirty and youthful, I think you will look great! I was going to cut mine but I chickened out.

I think short hair can look great for weddings! I chopped off about 6 inches (too about shoulder length) a month after I got engaged. I know its not going to grow back out before the wedding – but I love it!
@arobb81: I’ve heard of growing out hair for a wedding, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen an updo with hiplength hair! Thats so much hair! I bet it will look gorgeous 🙂 I was always so jealous of girls whos hair grew that long growing up – mine just wont grow more than to about my bra strap.
