Decidedly short

Remember this debate I had way back when about growing my hair out versus keeping it short? A couple of months ago I started the growing-out process, because long hair seems so luxurious and like something someone my age should have (meaning every time I get it cut short the stylist asks me if I have kids). It’s now down to my shoulders and driving me insane. INSANE I tell you. It seems like it grows an inch every week and is just plain ridiculous.

I made the cut-throat decision and called to move my haircut up a week and am probably more excited than I have ever been for a haircut... I should've had it moved to tomorrow, I don't know if I can stand three more days of this insanity.

Short hair will be glorious, for so many reasons:
1. Less time spent in the morning “styling” my hair (if you can even call it that, I only know one trick: Blow dry. Straighten. Which is part of the my problem with longer-ish hair).
2. I’ll feel much, much sassier and more confident with short hair. (And can forgo the expensive red high-lights I was planning for added sass)
3. I look better with shorter hair. It’s a fact. More than 5 people have told me that in the past couple of months alone.
4. I will once again live up to my Blogger profile image.

So it’s settled. I will forever be a short-haired lady. And kudos to all of the women who have hair past their shoulders, I just don’t know how you do it.

Maybe bangs?

I go back and forth all the time. I feel your pain. I cut mine shortish last year, but have been only cutting it short enough for it to grow out...hit my shoulders and drive me crazy.

Everyone tells me I shouldn't do the typical get married cut hair, but I've had long hair all my life and have never done a thing with it. Plus I totally feel like I can kick ass with short hair. Why is that?
