See, it's just there - even when I try to do something nice to it. Every time I go to my stylist I say "trim and keep the long layers". How boring, I know. And now I should say "I'm just so over it" but I'm terrified to because it took me four years to get this. But the truth is that I am over it, I think. I don't know. I'm scared! It's just boring and doesn't do anything and I feel like I need a little va-voom kind of change in this department.
So if you're obsessed with beauty gurus like I am, you may have seen that Nicole Guerriero recently chopped her locks into a long bob-ish, kinda, and it's gorgeous! It's also a length very similar to what I've had many times in the past - so it should feel safe, right? No guys, I'm so scared to make this decision. Yea it's "just hair" and "it will grow back" but mine grows so slowly and I don't wanna wait another few years if I decide that I hate this va-voom change. I'm at this place right now where I'm like "all I've ever wanted is for my hair to be long again....... now my hair is long and I don't know what to do with it other than cut it." The struggle, it's real and it's a bus that I'm on.

Let's weigh this out a bit.
- The cons of having long hair: so much work, so much product, so much money on product.
- The pros of having long hair: YOU HAVE LONG HAIR and it took forever to get it!
- The cons of having short hair: you no longer have long hair, if you want long hair again you're gonna have to wait it out a couple years.
- The pros of having short hair: a lot less work to maintain, a lot less product used and money spent on product, quicker showers, quicker to get ready everyday, you'll look in the mirror and feel like a fresh new woman, and if you really want long hair again.... you can get extensions.
BUT I'M STILL AFRAID!
