Hair Dilemma

Every year, come May or so, I decide I want to cut my hair. Then I'm never sure where to go, what style to have cut, how short to go, or anything else. After a month or two of dithering, I go to Great Clips and have them hack off an inch and continue growing it with the thought "Well, I'll just keep it long until after Dickens." Through the entire fall, I see cute hairstyles and think, "Yes, right after Dickens." I wait through the entirety of October and November thinking, "Whew at last. After just a few more weeks I can cut my hair. Then Dickens happens, and during Dickens I spend all month with my hair up most of the time. When I take it down at the end of the day, I get complements on how lovely it is. And then I start to believe it. Yes, it is lovely. And it's taken so very long to grow out. Maybe I should just keep it long.

Well, the cycle has repeated four times now, and I'm in the January phase again: maybe I should just keep it long. I'm now convinced that this is the last stage/cycle before true madness and next I'll be committed and not allowed anywhere near scissors. But back in October and November, I did look at hair styles. I even did a couple of different styles on me in the online Clairol Try It On Studio back in early December. I don't know if I want to cut bangs. I don't know if I want to cut it short. I don't know if I want to do something small or something drastic. I haven't found just the right thing to make me think "Yes, now that's how I want my hair!" So, I suppose I'm throwing it open to the peanut gallery for commentary and recommendations.


  • heheheheheh. You should not take hair advice from me - I have serious hair commitment issues. That said, I'm all for trying new things. I have had long hair, short hair and everything in between. But for a LONG time I only had long hair and couldn't have imagined cutting it short. Turns out, my super short cut I'm sporting these days may be the best look I've ever had. Easy, fun, versatile.

    The only main thing I'd say is that it's really important to go somewhere GOOD when you do want something more than a straight chop off the bottom. Money=Happiness in the hair world.

    See you later!
