Ok, so I have had long hair for the past couple years. My problem is that my hair is EXTREMELY thick. As in, I feel like Hermione from Harry Potter (in the first two movies, not the later ones when they made her hair better). I have been saying that I am going to chop it after the wedding, but I don’t know if I can wait that long. My long, thick hair is such a hastle.
This is me 8 months ago (my hair is even long and crazier now!)
And this is the style I want to get it cut to:
Should I do it? Please help!

I would want my hair to be long for the wedding. I had long hair that I cut over 2 years ago. It is still growing out (so slowly) and I wish I hadn’t done it. I don’t think I’ll cut my hair again because of the time it takes for it to grow.

@MsPoodles: Mine seems to grow quite quickly. Only 2 years ago I had it cut to my chin, and now it is nearing my elbows.
It has just become such a pain!

Go for it! That will still be long enough for tons of great styles!

@JessesGirl: That is what I am thinking, especially since I still have 5 months to go!

That was the picture I took to my stylist last year when I got my hair cut! It didn’t look exactly like that since I have thin hair, but I absolutely love it! You should cut it!

Could you layer it so you keep the overall length and reduce the bulk?

I think it would look adorable, but if you’re not sure – why don’t you cut it, but go a few inches longer than that? You can also lighten the weight of your hair by adding layers and bangs. Then, if you love it, you can go shorter after the wedding.

Why don’t you just keep the length and get it thinned out instead of cutting it? My sister does this to my Best Friends hair (she has Super thick hair like yours) and it looks amazing and really makes a difference for her hair. It is so much easier to style and holds curls ten times better thinned out. My sis just uses thinning shears– you should try it out.
P.S. I love your inspiration pic! I think it would look adodrable on you. I would just be afraid of not having the length of hair I would want for the wedding. That’s up to you though.

I like your long hair. Have you had it short before?

First, that new haircut would still technically be long and is long enough for most updos. Second, if your hair is super long and thick, it might be too muhc hair for most updos.
I think the super long hair is doing nothing to make you look your best. It’s pretty hair, but it’s kind of just there. If you cut it, it can work for you, enhance your features, etc. Your wedding is like 5 months away, so you will get about 3-6 inches back depending on how fast your hair grows, so even if you don’t like it, it’ll have grown out a lot by the wedding day.

Honestly, even with layers and getting it thinned, within a few weeks it starts feeling super heavy again.
I had my hair chopped to chin-length a few years ago and loved it. I just don’t want to go that short before the wedding.
I think I am going to do it! Thanks for the encouragement everyone!
