To Cut or Not to Cut

I have something I need to talk to you about.

Remember how happy I was here? It was a little over a month ago that I got my hair seriously cut and loved, loved, loved it. But ya'll, my hair grows at the speed of light and it is totally the funk now! I would show you a picture but it is just too hideous and I love ya'll too much. My next hair appointment isn't for two weeks and I don't know what I'm going to do.

My question is: Should I get the same cut again and start paying out the wazoo to get my hair cut every three weeks OR keep going through this HORRIBLE growing out stage? I really need your advice.

I thought it was gorgeous before, so I guess it depends on how expensive your hairdresser is....but I say - do it the same way!

Maybe you could ask her if there was some sort of maintenance you could do in between? Or if there was something simple she could do to make it last longer?

Growing out stages are the pits. But if you have a good stylist, they can help you through it.
The short was sooo gorgeous, though.
Sorry, I'm no help here.

Jill, you know you look cute to me no matter what you do, but I LOVE it sassy short. You need to wear it with style for all of us that can't. :)

I'm going to say this and leave myself wide open for trash talk. Check the farmer's almanac for what days are good this month to get your hair cut if you want to get it cut less. Once upon a time, people used to do it based on the astrological signs - something to do with the moon/gravity, etc. Check it out. I'm just saying....

I'm in the growing out stage myself...and so ready for it to be over! But I am constantly tempted to just cut it off.

You'll look beautiful not matter what. I vote the same adorable short hair cut. Good luck!

The short hair was super cute, but if you don't want to get it cut so often I say grow it out and play with the color to make the process more pleasant. Thanks for following my blog, I hope you get a chance to check out my shop during the sale this week. :)

Oh Jilly, I go through this too. There have been a few times I have gone drastic and gotten all my hair cut off and well I just let it grow out. Never went back to get another short haircut. BUT with that being said I think you should keep it short. It is VERY CUTE and SASSY!!!! :)

I just found your site and I've really enjoyed it. Here is what I think...My advice would be to tell your hairdresser and come up with a length that you can live with and that will grow out where you can manage it until the next cut. She will know what to do to help. By the way, I love the short cut.

your hair looked super cute!!!

I am right now at the growing out stage, so freaking awkward, you have no idea! haha

I can't wait for my hair to be chin-length!!!

Janna said...

I'm a short hair girl, and I think your new cut is SO flattering. Therefore I say CUT!! I go every 4 wks and I have hair that is a cross between Pink and Kate Gosselin - way shorter than yours.

BECKY said...

I loved your new cut, but I'm not the right person to ask about frequency!! I honestly go about 2-3 times a year, and will trim in between myself. I have a hard time swallowing the cost! As long as I can make it look decent, I'm happy! If your budget can afford it, why not pamper yourself and keep your cute cut??!!

Have a delightful Thursday, gal,
Hugs,
Becky

That's a tough one. I loved your new hair style but I know going for a cut every 3 weeks can be a pain and get expensive. I don't know??? Maybe get it cut again and then see how you feel about going in every 3 weeks. It might be worth it or it might be better to let it grow.

Denise said...

it's cute and sassy short. cut it.
i have a theory that we only have so many good neck years, and that that is the time to keep our hair short. when the saggy neck years set in grow it out and hide it!

came over via lemonade make'n mama.

I've got one word for you.

buy a hat

Pappa Rooster said...

ok, i have been asked to clarify my prior statement,
a hat would remove the necessity to have haircuts, therefore rendering hairstyles moot,
it has nothing to do with your current hairstyle which is very nice.

Rebekah said...

Jill, that new haircut is awfully cute! But your hair looks cute all the time!

What does your hubby say? ;-)
