    Do it!

    No way, your hair is so nice long!

    Cut it, but here is a style I would recommend... (comment)

    I would be too afraid for something that dramatic, but you have a good face shape for a shorter cut, so If you’re really ready for a drastic change then I would go for it. i would just make sure you are 110% prepared for such short hair. It would take a long time to get those long locks back and it’s not as low maintanence as it seems (still have to use styling products to get it to look good) but would certainly be great for a new chapter in life!

    Wow that is dramatic, but I think it’ll look great! I think cuts like these are always scary to get done, but if you have the confidence you can rock it!

    I would love to do a pixie cut, but don’t think it would look good.  I say go for it, as long as you and the hubs are on board! While my hubs thinks that short hair on a girl can be sexy, he admitted to me that he wouldn’t like it on me

    @DeathByDesign: it’s a little bit different for guys and girls πŸ™‚ I can guarantee you Natalie Portman did not role out of bed looking like that. She has texture paste and mousse in her hair to give it the definition and hold. Trust me, I’m not saying short hair is higher maintanance than long hair, cause that is definitely not the case, but if DH rolled out of bed and did nothing to his hair (it’s short, but thick) it would look it.

    I have several friends with super short hair (girls) and they are always quick to dispel the myth that short hair takes no effort, so I was just passing that info along to the OP

    Your face is stunning and I really and truly think you could pull off that cut, BUT I think you might have hair regret.  Thats a lot of hair to lose and you might love your cut initially, you may hate the upkeep and feel loss.

    Keep it long!!!!  Wear ponytails if you need to get it off your face, but keep it!

    I’m of the mindset that it’s just hair – cut it! It can always grow back πŸ™‚

    I do agree, however, that it might not be a bad idea just to pick up some pomade or texture paste at the salon when you do get it cut. I bet all it would take is a small dollop, rub it between your palms to emulsify it, and then rub it through your hair to tame any flyaways. Wouldn’t take more than 45 seconds!

    The only issue I have with a short cut is having to constantly get it trimmed for up keep.

    Last time I chopped my hair I HAD HAD HAD to get it trimmed every 6 weeks or so to be able to stye it correctly… This was a total pain… especially since I’m one that only makes 2.. maybe 3 trips to the salon a year. lol

    Otherwise, I love a dramatic cut…. just not the demanded upkeep. lol

    I have had short hair before. Not pixie short, but not bob long and it is so much easier. Believe me. Theres no need to worry about fly away as they are easily tamed, humidity, as its so short, it doesn’t bug it, no blowdrying necessary unless you want to, and no straightening/curling. Thing is though, you need a haircut much more often!!!

    Go for it!! Change is good! You have a beautiful face; you can pull off a cut like that. You’ll feel so liberated! And the great thing about hair is that it grows…so if you don’t like the super-short cut, you’ll have a bob soon enough. DO IT! πŸ˜‰

    @runsyellowlites: yes, that is one thing that I don’t envy about DH, he MUST go get a haircut every 5 weeks (his hair grows super fast) or it looks so bad. If I really want to with my long hair, I can go 3 months without a cut and it doesn’t look bad, just a little uneven.

    But then again his does not cost as much as mine, so maybe it evens out? I’d have to crunch the numbers, but def something for the OP to consider
