Hair Raising

I have a horrible confession to make.  I have not cut my hair in almost two and a half years.  I remember this only because my last haircut was right before graduation.

Healthy hair, how I have missed thee

I knew I would be growing my hair out to accommodate a fancy updo for our wedding, but our wedding (and anniversary) has come and gone and my hair just keeps growing. You guys, it is long.  And unruly.  To prove this point, I give you this terribly unflattering picture of me and B back in July when his mom and stepdad came to visit.  Add about another inch and that's where my hair is at today.

Long, scraggly hair

My reasons for letting my hair get so long are two fold.  First, I've never been to a hair salon to get my hair cut in my entire life.  I am aware that such a statement sounds implausible, but  it is only because my aunt has cut my hair as long as I can remember.  The prospect of going to a real salon is kind of terrifying to me, but I'm willing to get over it to finally have healthy looking hair again.

My second reason for procrastinating cutting my locks is that I am very indecisive about how I actually want my hair to look.  I definitely want a change, but I'm too scared to do anything drastic.  It doesn't help that other ladies told me not to cut my hair and that I would regret it as soon as I did.  Thanks guys, that helped a lot.

So far, these are my favorite hair hair styles in the running for my big chop:

And, to show I am not just partial to blondes actresses, the wondrous Tina Fey:

What do you think?  Would one of these cuts be a good change for my hair, or should I be more daring with my style?


  1. I love Heidi Klum's hair in that pic. I think shoulder-length hair would look great on you!

  2. I think you should totally take the chance... Just keep in mind to make sure you can still pull your hair back. Everytime I go and chop my hair off I always forget about making sure it isn't too short and I have to deal with hair that is always in my face. Also, you should donate what you cut off to Locks of Love.

  3. I love Heidi's bob the most, and I think it would be gorgeous on you! I love shoulder-length (and shorter, too!) bobs.

  4. Well, since they're pretty much the same hairstyle, I think it's a good sign that this is what you want: a slightly inverted bob with a longer face framing bang.

    I think it'll look awesome on you!

  5. Do it! I can't wait to cut my hair short after the wedding. I wish I had enough to do Locks of Love, but you totally do.

  6. I think that is such a cute cut and would look great on you!

  7. I also think that Heidi's bob would look great on you! Totally my vote. :)

  8. Those are all cute, I'm partial to Jennifer Aniston.
