Totally not fitness related, but I need all the opinions I can get

Tuesday, July 15, 2014

So I've bee thinking of cutting my hair. 90% of my life I've had long hair. I get the urge to cut it once in a while, donate it to Locks of Love. But I've never really gone shorter than shoulder length. Well here is kinda what I'm looking at doing....

So here's the thing. I have THICK, THICK hair and it kinda naturally wavy. Not sure how this cut would pan out. In my head I see it looking afro like lol. My hubs is totally down for this cut because all he's ever seen is long hair. And he is usually seeing it when he unclogs the drain. I kinda have a round face too. Who am I kidding my face it just round, not heart shaped or anything cute like that, just round.

I just need some opinions from some people not afraid to hurt my feelings, and you guys seemed like just the people lol.

    I say go for it!! I too have long, very thick hair and I rarely cut it above my shoulders. BUT,, I make up for it with being adventurous with my color. I'll try almost anything (with exception of unnatural colors like the pinks, blues etc) Like I've told my daughter, it's hair! It'll grow back!! If ya hate it in a few months you'll be over it...have fun, be adventurous, try something new!!

    I say go for it, but maybe slowly. :) I recently cut off about 10 to 11 inches to go a little above the shoulder and I love it! It feels great and so much cooler. I'm not a pixie cut fan personally but if you love it do it. You can always go just above the shoulder or chin length at first to see how that feels then go shorter. If you have a stylist you trust you can also get their opinion. They may be able to let you know the best short cut for your face shape and hair type. :)

    That makes 3 of us with super-thick hair. I find mind pulls the wave out when it is very long and bounces back when shorter.
That said, I am in the process of growing mine out for the first time in years. I have literally been to every hair dresser in my small town and no matter what pictures I bring in, or try to describe what I want, I am never satisfied with the cut. The last lady I went to cut it so that I could style it my way, but she never agreed with my style wishes. I have a very long face and tend to look like an afghan hound in need of a trim much of the time.
I agree with the beautician consult. Keep us posted!

    DO IT! I just finally got up the courage to cut off 8 inches and start the process to going platinum blonde and I couldn't be happier with the result. It's scary, but it's hair! If you're worried about the style, can you try to find a similar style with some waves in it?

It's only hair! It will grow back, even if you hate it you'll have stories.

    Personally, I would say not to go that short. I have EXTREMELY thick hair. Like a friggin' horses tail thick. Even about shoulder length doesn't look great on me because it goes outward. I've always wanted to rock short hair (mostly for the ease of it!) but I doubt I'll ever get to. I would maybe consult a beautician? Good luck!
