First of all, you have BEAUTIFUL hair.  I can only wish I could grow my straight baby-fine hair out like that.  But it looks like you might have some shorter layers in the front.  I think it would be really pretty (and you’d still have long hair) if you got it trimmed to about that length, with the ends layered a bit in front.

I’m with Neva. I’d cut all of it to the length of the shorter layers, and put in some new layers all around to keep it light and give it movement.

From my personal experience, when I have grown my hair out to the length yours is now (actually where mine is now too), and then decided to cut off that 4-5 inches so that it is between shoulder and breast, I am never happy with the outcome.  My hair is thick and wavy, and at that length I tend to get too much volume.  The length helps my hair to weigh itself down, and not be so ‘large’ if that makes sense.  I have decided that I will stay long (like yours) or go all the way to shoulder bob if I ever cut it.  Not sure if you have ever experienced this, but wanted to share.

I think that your hair is beautiful at the length that it is!  Would you miss it if it were gone?

Love your hair! Just about above your ‘chest’ would be perfect and will give you that I got a haircut! fresh feeling without making your face seem round.

Yepp I’m with the majority. I’d cut it to where your shorter layers are now. I’d also do some even shorter layers close to your jawline just to define your face 🙂 I love your hair and I’m so jealous because my hair is so fine that whenever I grow it past my shoulders it just looks like a limp mess!

I agree that taking it up and adding some shorter long layers would lighten it up and still give you that same beautiful hair feel.

I’m ready for a chop as well… but too short and there’s just as much upkeep in trimming it as there is in washing & drying long hair. lol

You & your hair are beautiful!!  I would recommend just chopping a few inches off, I have long hair too, and everytime I get frustrated with it and chop a few inches, I feel so much better!  It doesn’t look like alot, but it feels like alot!

@Neva: This! I think right now it’s too long and drags down your appearance a bit.

your hair is amazing! i think a little trim, maybe have them run a razor through it to get some thickness out (this made my hair so much more manageable) and then layers ie jen aniston now, not from friends. lol.
