Day 16: More Me, Sorry

I'm seriously considering cutting my hair short again.

I've really enjoyed having thicker, longer hair (as has hubby, my natural hair is so limp and fine) but the maintenance for hair extensions is so high, not to mention expensive.
Drying takes 10x longer and I've found styling hasn't been as versatile as I thought it would be.
You can't have an up-do for instance, or braid it or even tie it up in a damn ponytail without it looking all buldgy with the weft showing through.

Yea, come summer I think I'll give it the chop.
I can't imagine having to blow wave and wear out a thick mane of hair only to have it turn frizzy and stick to my skin from all the humidity and sweat. Ugh! I can hardly stand the thought of it!

Oh but I do love long luxurious locks...
Not sure what I'll end up going for, Long hair don't care or Short and sweet.
Which do you think is best?

Hmm... I think I'll have to wait and see.

I always wore my hair long when I was younger. But these days, living in the humid Qld climate, I keep it short. My biggest problem is that I have very strong, dead straight hair that absolutely refuses to accept any style. My hairdresser suggested I should wear it in a 'messy' style with 'root lift' and wax. But it was ridiculous - the amount of effort required to keep my hair looking messy.

haha I agree Lyn, it's a bit like the amount of make up it takes to create the no-make up look :)

I love that pic of you.So cute.me and my girls have shoulder length hair.I always had long.The shortest I go is the shoulders LOL.I know exactly what you mean about fine hair though.My youngest and I have lots of hair that appears thick but its very fine.If my youngest would leave her hair alone after washing she would look like she had an afro LOL.But she straigtens it.I know what you mean about those extentions wow they take forever to put in.

Long hair is buns, ponytails etc that for me is a plus.

I also have super thick hair and it takes FOREVER to dry. But, I have to wear it off my face or it drives me crazy. In theory, I'd love to chop off my super long hair. But then I couldn't put it in a pony tail. Your eyes are gorgeous though and you could totally pull off the short look!

Short sculpting your pretty face would be perfect.
