It's coming ALL off!

So, it's that time of year again. My hair is grown out, dull, straight, one-length. Zzz... I've resorted to just pulling my hair back because even letting it down naturally is really drab. This is the time of year where I need to do something 'drastic' to my hair.

Last year, it was the fashion mullet. This year... I'm cutting it all off. I've actually contemplated this for a couple years now but never really had the guts to do it. Sadly to say, I've been inspired by the entertainment and fashion world for this final push. Also, I told Ish I'd cut it off if she cut her ass-length hair.

I've been milling a couple of websites and magazines for 'the right cut'. I have to figure out what 'type' of short hair I want: bob, shag, pixie, etc., etc. As simple as short hair might seem, there's different ways to rock it, and all of it has to do with face shape.

I've so far mentioned this idea to a couple of people, most of the reactions have been mixed like the last time I mentioned cutting off my hair. A guy even replied, "I dunno, guys prefer girls with long hair.". Uh... okay. Thanks for the tip, but that's not my entire goal. Now that I think of it, I really wonder if girls choose their hair style based on what men like, because I don't think I've really thought about that or even taken it into consideration.

I've narrowed down my choices to something a la Keira Knightly to Jessica Stam (BTW, Jessica Stam's doing Victoria Secret this year. Go, Stam!).

^Why does Alba look like she's 30 here?
^C L I C H E
^Yeah, Stam's hair isn't that short, but it's perhaps something less drastic?

I really want to get this done this weekend, homework and time permitting. I want to do this as soon as possible so if it turns out bad, it has a chance to grow out and 'calm down' before I actually start to care how it looks. Haha... That reminds me, I need to get my eyebrows 'did' as well. Anyone know any good shaping places in the Mississauga area?

So long, hair getting caught in coat zippers! So long, 4-hour hair-drying times! So long, hair flying into my face and sticking to my lip gloss! So long!

i was thinking about cutting my hair short again too, but i usually make those kind of changes in summer. also, i'd go short-short. although, i know i won't keep it short forever so growing it out would be a bitch. it was the first time. i'd say go angular with piecey vertical layers made with a razor. that way it'll be chic as opposed to fluffy. you'll probably want shorter layers on the top in the back otherwise it might be too heavy around your jaw.

good luck!

I love Kiera Knightley's hair in the second picture. I wish I could have that hair and look nice. I can't wait to see what yu decide on.
