Here is a crash course on yours truly, I am sarcastic (if you haven't already noticed) I am silly, and I have very long hair (pictured below about 8 months ago). These days my hair is so long as previously mentioned, if I'm not careful it can easily dip into the toilet. This is not ideal. All I have been thinking of lately is chopping my hair off, I have my hair in a braid today and have been eyeing the scissors on my desk thinking I could chop this braid off any minute. Now that I sound unstable, let me fill you in on why I feel this way...
I have been growing my hair since 2007 and the result is exactly what I suspected, super long, useless hair which I have grown quite sick of! Frankly, I think nobody needs hair longer then their collar bone, so why I have allowed mine to reach my hip bones is beyond me. Every time I shower it takes me a good twenty minuets to comb out the tangles, by then I am too reluctant to spend the time styling it because that takes another hour. I am at my breaking point (and so are my split ends) and have therefore decided to chop it all off.
Only issue with that is 1. I am a bridesmaid in two upcoming weddings and both brides has expressed to me that if my hair cant fit into an up-do I will be scared with a hot poker. 2. I am terrified!
The fact alone that I have put so much effort into growing it out for the past 6 years is enough to make me tear up. Also, I lack the ability to just "get a trim", historically every time I have gone in for a hair cut I have lobbed off at least 4 inches, go big or go home is my mantra. So does this mean I will end up with chin length hair before I know it? Over the past three months I have flip flopped back and forth with my emotions and have even told several of my friends I was planning on cutting it, in the hopes that spreading the word will make me commit. Alas, I have still not made a move, I don't have a hair appointment scheduled in my near future so the prospect of this cut is looking dim.
More then likely, the day I finally make my way into a hair dresser the scene will play off like this.
See that, that's delirium taking over, and it happens every single time I make the decision to cut my hair. This is what my hair looked like last time I chopped it back in 2007. Keep in mind I went in to see my hair dresser for a trim that day and ended up cutting my shoulder length hair into THIS
While I don't think I will be going that short in the front this time, and I wont be subjecting myself to side bangs, I am considering cutting that much off. I'm thinking something like this..
Do you have your own theories as to why it's so damn difficult to cut your hair? Or your own personal story? Please share, I don't like feeling alone, and also any motivation to help me make the cut would be appreciated.
