To chop.... or not to chop.... (*dying sounds*)

So, there are many occasions where I hate being a girl. Don't get excited - I am not looking to be a BOY with all their friggidy-diggidyness, but some things aren't at ALL fair to us glorious women creatures. AM I RIGHT, LADIES? The whole carrying-a-baby, pushing-a-watermelon-out-a-hole-the-size-of-a-chapstick-tube, monthly happy hour thing..... not so crazy about.


One of the things on my hate-the-drama-girl list is the problem of hair. If I had it my way, we would all be bald, beautiful, shiny people. Boys can live in that world. They never have to worry about these things, and they just get to play with mud.

I try to be pretty un-dramatic, anti-girl (oh wait....) but HAIR is one thing I will never get a handle on. I have never liked my hair since the day after I got married. Never worried or hardly cared about it too much before that. But then the hair got old the minute I hurtled myself over the altar. I have had many wonderful friends and family, especially Julie and April, who have cut and helped with the hair. I always love the haircut- for like 2 weeks, or right after THEY style it and do it. And then it's back to the same old I-wanna-break-the-mirror-everytime-I-look-in-it crap. What is the deal? Is it just crazy diddly me or am I yet to find the right haircut for my big old face?

So I find myself in a freak-out-being-a-girl moment. I almost went and hacked all the hair off on my lunch break. The person I see in the mirror is definitely some lunatic that I don't know anything about. I have been growing my hair out over the last 9 months. The longer it gets, the more I hate it. It's in the stupid in-between stage of dumbness, and I keep thinking the longer it gets, the more I'll like it. Or will I hate it more and regret it?? I'm not so good at doing the hair and so is it worse to go short?
I am very lucky to be married to a wonderful, playing-in-the-mud-kind-of-boy, that always tells me he loves me and I'm beautiful to him no matter what. But he's a liar too. He will never help me with the hair question.

So I am pleading, begging, on my knees, tears in my eyes, and with GIRL drama, to ask for your input. To chop.... or not to chop.... that is the question!! And-I-promise-not-to-put-so-many-dashes-in-my-future-sentences too!

I think you should chop it! I love mine short and won't go back for a while. It's so much more sassy and I bet you'd look smokin' hot!

Ditto to Julie's comment up there ^^. I love a cute short cut. I actually really like the pic you have in the middle of your post. I think she kinda looks like you. :)

Chop it! It will always grow back. Have you ever had it that short? You should try it, it would be a fun change.

Oh I think your hair is pretty!! It always looks so nice. I look like a bag lady next to you. I actually like it long, but I know that sometimes change is needed. Knock yourself out!

I have to say I usually like my hair shorter too. I always think I'm going to like it if I grow it back out, and then once it gets anywhere close to my shoulders it drives me NUTS! I always feel more sassy with short hair, and considering I usually have the remnants of my kids' lunch smeared all over me, sassy is hard to come by! Good luck...we need pictures of whatever you decide!

My hair used to be longish...but it was too much work and I was shedding like a banshee..I thought Patrick might die from choking on a hairball. So I chopped it...and I like it.

Janelle Johnson said...

My vote...shake it up somehow without chopping it. Hm? Is that possible? Like play with the color, add layers or side-sweep bangs, or something so it's a change for you but you have more time to decide if you want it long or short. I don't know Girl. That's a tough one.

buzz cut.
or mullet, the choice is yours. Either way, you will be the envy of Jake's flame shirts.

My opinion... just CHOP IT OFF! Michael's opinion... don't ever cut your hair, EVER! Long hair is sexy!

I love having short hair so I say go for short!!

Cut your hair. It will always grow back. Plus short hair can be really fun.
