Our Very Own Hair Thursday,* uh, Monday

For a while now, every time I watch Sweet Home Alabama, I get the urge to cut my hair. Seriously, cute right?

But then I just ignore it for a few days and then I get over it.

BUT! I just recently watched SHA again, followed by Veronica Mars, the first season of which I am now in the middle of watching. The season where she has a whole bunch of very cute short hairstyles.

So I'm all 'I could do that,' and 'I have a hair straightener,' and 'no worries,' which of course does not take into account that these people have a team of hair stylists at their disposal who are willing to spend more than, say, thirty seconds on their hair every morning.

It also does not take into account that my hair is crazy long, and thick, not to mention curly. Or the fact that I've spent the whole of my life wishing I had hair this long, and the last five or so years growing it.

Mostly, it's the inbetween stage that I'm afraid of, if I should decide to grow it out again. And the problem that maybe I'd need to be blonde and slim and five foot nothing for this to work.

So I need someone to talk me down off the ledge. Or tell me I could totally rock this look:

One or the other.

*TM Whoorl.


  1. i'm thinking you could rock the look.
    but you might also have to go blonde.
    or, you know...maybe red.
    red is awesome, i hear.

  2. I think you could do it too. I don't think it's height. I am very small and I cannot rock short hair because I have a man face.

  3. Nooooo, don't do it!!

    I always had long, freakishly thick hair. Hairdressers always want to cut it short. Always. It always looks like a mushroom on my head. Seriously...If you have the time to straighten it every single day then go for long as you don't get it feathered or layered. I beg you not to get it layered!! You don't want to go to through mushroom shaped hair hell too.

  4. I definitely think you could rock it. Although I have a personal preference for long hair.

  5. I think you could rock it. When it's shorter you'd be able to blow dry it straight or straight-ish more easily. Plus, if you cut off 10 inches you can donate it to Locks of Love to be made into wigs for kids with cancer.

    So... if you cut it short and you absolutely hate it, you'll still feel good about doing a good deed, and you know it'll grow back, so in the end, there's no real downside IMO (this was the justification I gave myself when I cut MY hair short! Lol! I also made sure that even after I cut it it'd still be long enough to pull into a ponytail if I hated it!)
