    To cut hair or not

    Advertisements
    Help.
    My hair falls to my lower back.
    When I joined the navy I had to cut my hair to shoulder length.
    I'm kinda tempted to cut it again, but am being really indecisive.
    Pros: I don't have to wear it in a bun every day. It would be cute.
    Cons: I hate the mid length growing out phase. I like being to do elaborate braids.

    I can't decide...

    I cut my long hair to shoulder length last summer and I was super pissed about it every single day until it grew back. I say don't do it. It's long again now but I still talk about what a huge mistake it was like once a week probably, it remains one of my biggest regrets in life.

    I'm always on cut your hair. Not wanting to have to wear my hair up everyday for work was honestly, like, 75% of the reason I cut my hair in the first place. Do it!!

    I cut my long hair shorter last year and I totally regretted it. Its only just now getting to be to the length that it was before I chopped it off. I am never cutting my hair short ever again.

    I'm having the same struggle right now some days I get so sick of my hair being so long and heavy that I'm like "That's it, I'm done with this shit, it's getting chopped" and then I remember how much I hate having to try and grow it back and I change my mind. It's a problem! I may go get it trimmed at least and get rid of all the split ends but that may be it.

    I typically have long hair. There have been two occasions where I have chopped it to shoulder length. Then, for the next year, I hate my hair until it grows back.

    So you don't have to put it in a bun for work everyday, I say do it!

    You can always grow it back if you don't love it...

    I just cut my hair a few weeks ago, i love it!! Sooo much easier to deal with! I usually dont even dry it anymore, just brush it after I shower and let it dry naturally.

    So I say cut it!

    I recently got rid of ~14 inches and I'm loving it. It's so much lighter and less work but it still looks "long" to me (past shoulders). Background for me, I had had my very long (lower back/just to the butt length) for about 6 years, only ever getting a trim-5 inches taken and so I was for sure ready for a bigger change.
