Hi Bees. I’m debating whether or not to do the post-wedding chop. The hubs likes my hair long, but it’s getting to be such a pain to maintain that I just wear it up in a ponytail all the time.
Did any of you do the post-wedding chop? Any before and after photos to share as insipration? Did you new husbands opinion influence your decision?

i’ve asked my fiance many times, and he always says the same thing about my hair. "i like it either way." so my personal opinion is: if you’re tired of it, then cut it. do something different. i’ve ALWAYS had my hair long.. until 2 years ago when i decided to get it cut for locks of love.. &it hasn’t been past my shoulders since. i love it short. but i’m letting it grow out for my wedding.. and then i’m chopping it all off afterwards!

My husband loves my hair long so I am growing it out. I chopped it off a few months before the wedding (oops) it still grew out pretty well before hand! I say do what you want it will always grow!!!

I did it and LOVED it. I have had long hair since college and felt like it was time for a change..
In the second picture, it had grown for 2 months so it was even shorter when I got it cut!

I’m doing it this saturday! My hair was short when I met my hubby and I let it grow out for the wedding. Now my hubby wants me to have it cut the way it was when we met. My students are going to flip! I’m attaching pics, one of how my hair looks now and one of what it looked like when we first met.

I just did it! My hair was halfway down my back and it was just getting too long so I had it cut it just past my shoulders. I hate styling my hair so it’s a very simple cut, but I LOVE how healthly my hair feels now and it is so much easier to blow dry…and really easy to curl if I want to change things up. I don’t regret it. I haven’t taken a photo of my new hair yet, but maybe I’ll take some picture this weekend to share with you 🙂

Oh, and if you want some inspiration for shorter hair, here are two styles that I liked (but I chickened out and went for super simple and longer).

I kept my hair long – took way too long to grow out. I’m talking years!
You can totally pull off the short hair where I couldn’t. I’ve always read if you wear it up more than 50% of the time, chop it off!

After years of cutting my hair short because it just took too much time to grow out, I’ve realized that i just look better with longer hair. Hubbs says he doesn’t care either way (typical) so I’m leaving mine long 🙂

I just did it! Rather than retyping the whole story here, you can follow the link to check out my blog about it:

I couldn’t wait to do the post wedding chop! I have curly hair so it’s a bit time consuming and not very manageable, so short is the way to go and I love it!
Here’s some pics:

My wedding also hasn’t happened yet but I am planning on chopping it after. I am only growing it out for the wedding. My FI absolutely loves my long hair but in the end he doesn’t have to deal with it’s "b*tchiness". I am a low maintenance gal. I love making things easier for myself especially when it comes to my hair.

I’ll be chopping mine off! I donated about two feet of my hair two years ago and am hoping to donate about a foot after the wedding. I’m not going to lie, I am pretty excited. I miss having it short, plus it grows really fast, so it’s not that big of a loss.

yes, I’m mega sick of my hair (yes, I realize that’s lame, but that’s how I feel)
mine is almost long enough to donate to locks of love and still have chin length hair but DH is whining
