A Little Advice, Please...

Calling All Friends, Family, and Random Readers Who May Have Happened on This Blog Accidentally...

I need some advice.

Don't freak out , it's silly advice. But I'm seeking opinions none-the-less.

It's haircut time again...and I've had the same one for about 2 years...Feeling like it might be time for a change.

I've had my hair all the way from middle-of-my-back long to a barely-jaw-length bob in high school. I've been really happy with the style, lately. It's pretty easy to maintain...Handles the DC humidity...and I can always fall back on a pony tail or a cap over it on really unruly days.

However, when I saw Taraji Henson at the Oscars this year I totally fell in love with her bob and bangs. The guy who cuts my hair has been wanting to cut it short for a while, but I won't let him.

Summer is coming up and I'm wondering if it's time to take the plunge and change it up.

So...I'm seeking the opinions of YOU! Not hard... see the photos below and leave me a comment to let me know what you think.

The Current State of Affairs...




What I'm Thinking About...


So...What do you think? Can I pull this off without a team of expert stylists and a shut-your-mouth-don't-even-mention-how-much-it-costs antique diamond choker?

THIS is what I need to know!

So please, leave a comment and let me know what you think (yes you may post them anonymously...no I will not be offended, regardless...my skin...er...hair (?) is thicker than that). Appointment is on Wednesday. Time is ticking!

Laura & Steve said...

I definitely say go for it. I think it will look fabulous on you! Love ya! :)

While my last survey revealed that guys almost always prefer longer to shorter (If that's supposed to actually have any influence on the decision), I think you totally could pull it off - it would play really nicely with your features and you would look fabulous!

Pere said...

DO IT!!! You would lot HOT!!! Not that you don't already look hot now mind you, but you would look hot in a different way! :D

Oh my gosh! Can I do it too and we can match?! I love love love it and I think you would look simply maauvalous! But seriously can I steel it?

Jan said...

I say do it!

David and Melanie said...

of course you'd look hot! I'm thinking of coloring mine dark. Let's be daring!

JD said...

i believe you proclaimed me to be "of no use" in this department, so I will state no opinion.

cut it! if you trust your hairdresser to go to him more than once, i say trust him. plus you will totally rock that bob. chop chop!

ps call me if you want to ride to the cherry blossom race together...and/or packet pick-up :) (i've trained about as much as you have...might be kind of a miserable race)

I think your hair looks really great as is. That being said, I think you can pull off the style you are considering with ease.

My take as a guy. I think that the short haircut you are considering is very feminine and will be fine. I think the reason why a lot of guys don't like it when girls get short haircuts is because there are some of them that are very masculine short haircuts.

Bottom Line: Go for it!

Jane said...

I think your hair is beautiful and you could pull of anything and it would look great! I think the shorter hair cut would be fun, great for summer and you would of course make it look amazing!!!

Lindsey and Adam said...

I love it! I think it will look great on you. Make sure you post the pictures when it is all said and done!

Mike and Emily said...

I say take the plunge. I've always wanted to be brave, and I want you to be brave for me. Do IT Do IT DO IT!!!! yee haw! Plua, you've always been masterful at styling your own hair. If I got it, it would okay the first day and then I'd look like a disaster for months...

Ashlee said...

I say go for it! I think it would look super good on ya! It would fit your face shape and the bangs are so cute and sassy. Can't wait to see what you decide to do! Post some pics! How's life treating ya anyway?

MomAlicia said...

No! No! No! Don't do it Honey....
Just kidding, I had to be different. You always look amazing, and it's good to shake things up occasionally, keeps the guys interested;o)

Sydney said...

Do it! You can totally pull it off with ease and style!! :)

Meredith Stanfill said...

Yes please!!!!! It will look great! Go for the plunge it'll be worth it!
