Cut Short

I’ve wanted to cut my long hair since April and decided to wait until fall (less humidity). These two images are my inspiration.

  • You do not to wait till fall! I had cut my hair 3 weeks ago. I’ve been thinking doing it since last winter.
    I don’t know now why I hesitated to do it. You won’ t regret if you cut now! Your girly summer dress will be so prettier on you and you are going to wear colorful nail polish.

  • I love the timeless qualities of these images. As for the hair, go for it! You will wonder why you waited. Everyone needs to change it up now and then!

  • Every time I have cut my hair, it seems I immediately began the process of “growing it out again.” One of the hottest summers ever was the one with short hair that I couldn’t put up off my neck. I almost went crazy. That said, these photos are lovely and I can certainly understand the inspiration.

  • Unless your hair is thick and grows fast, I wouldn’t do it. I’ve always wanted long hair, but mine is too fine to keep past my shoulders. And now that I’m over 40, I couldn’t grow long hair, even if I never got another hair cut. Think carefully!

  • I’ve been wanting a change too, so it was between cutting or letting the silver grow in. I chose the silver for now. I think your hair would look great like this, very modern and chic.

  • I vote no. Don’t cut. Be beautifully long-haired and unique.

  • Agree with the other two! I’ve had short hair for years and if humidity is your issue, there are lots of wonderful products out there to smooth things down. You’ll definitely find your short makes you stand out from the crowd (in a good way).

  • Go for it Preston! 1. It will look amazing! 2. It will feel so fresh. 3. It’s only hair. It will grow back, promise. Take a chance!

  • By all means, cut it now! Long hair is everywhere and how many women does it really flatter? I’m in favor of finding the length that’s most flattering for your face. Or cutting it just for a change. Eiither way it will be liberating, you’ll probably look younger and feel fresher.

    And if it’s short enough, you can just tuck it behind your ears, put your riding helmet on and go.

  • Just one thought, short hair requires more time and care.

  • The poolside model looks refreshingly normal–her legs and thighs and little bloomers look natural and wholesome. Short, wavy hair is classic American beauty!

  • Go for it! I don’t know about you, but I always notice a woman with a great short cut, so chic. Think fab earrings and a gorgeous lipcolor. Dressed up or dressed down, it can always be an elegant look. I’m thinking about it myself. I love Robin Wright’s short cut on the cover of Town & Country. I will need a shot of bravery and maybe a shot of tequila.

  • I finally got the nerve a few months ago after having long blonde hair most of my life. It had become very much a part of me. My hairdresser encouraged me, so I went for it! OMG, why did I wait so long? no pun intended! I love it, other people love it, and I’ve been told several times that it makes me look younger! Even by my sisters! Go for it! It will suit you most definitely.
