Haircut time!

I need a haircut, and I'm sorely tempted to get it cut quite short. I always intended to chop it all off after I got married, but never got round to it and once more my hair has become long, boring and split-ended.

Long hair
Pros:
Versatile
Less frequent washing and cutting
Husband prefers

Cons:
OMG grabby baby hands HURT!
I do nothing other than tie it back these days

Short hair
Pros:
Easy to look after
Funky
No more hair-pulling
Fits under a cycle helmet/theatre wig more easily

Cons:
Needs more washing (I found short hair needed a wash every day)
Needs cutting more frequently or risk looking rubbish as layers grow out


Me now:


Me with short hair in 1999:


Some ideas:


Hair?

Long and luscious
0(0.0%)
Short and sassy
6(75.0%)
Mid-length compromise
2(25.0%)
Something else?
0(0.0%)

Of course, I just got mine cut to that length (and I LOVE it!) so take that into consideration.

(see my FB for a picture of my current haircut)

I'd go for a mid-length thing, so if you change your mind it won't take too much longer to grow out again.

I have long hair and I have to wash it every day. It feels disgusting if I don't :P

It's not so much a matter of length as much as type that dictates how often you need to wash it. My hair is thick and gets greasy really quickly, and I've always had to wash it daily no matter how long I've kept it.

This is what my hair looks like now, if that helps. I put a lot of mousse in it because I like that piecey, spiky look. Chopping it all off was the best thing I ever did for my appearance, I think. ^^;

I don't recall anything about having to wash short hair everyday. I like having mine short because I don't like to do that. But my idea of short might not be like yours. I don't style it, I just get it all hacked off. It doesn't look horrible when it grows out, as much as I'm a judge of that, but I don't think I have layers or anything, I'm not even sure how those are meant to work.

The middle one on the bottom row would look really cute on you!
