Should i cut my long hair short?
this is my current hair (i don't know how to link from here, so i guess just c+p into your search bar):
some bobs i like:
i also like these for leaving my hair a little longer but still kinda short:
so my first question is: do you think i should cut my hair? why or why not? and which of the styles do you think would look best on me?
here's the other part of my question: i don't like change, so even though i'm pretty sure i'd like my hair once i had it cut, i don't know if i can actually get myself to ask someone to chop it all off--i mean, that's a lot of hair and i'd probably have a heart attack from shock when i first looked in the mirror. but i really think that as i'm moving toward the last half of my college career and looking for internships and stuff, it would be good to have hair that looks more polished and professional. on top of that, i think shorter hair is really cute. i'm just scared to take the plunge because i haven't had my hair short in more than ten years.
so the second part of my question: does anyone have tips for how to make it less painful or less of a shock? if you had long hair and cut it to a similar length, how did you feel? would you do it again? if i did it in stages, what would be good ones to go by? i usually trim my hair 4-5 inches every five or so months (it grows fast), so it would have to be more than that to be a change.
