LEAVE IT or CUT IT?

Fine, now that you have all twisted my arms, I attempted to take photos on my own with my little hand held camera of my hair cut.  

Do you by chance realize just how incredibly hard that is?

Now take the challenge of that alone, with your husband sitting on the couch watching you and your one year old tugging at your pants.  

Not an easy task, but like I said, I attempted to take photos just for YOU.

So I went in with these three cut/styles for the stylist.

A little back ground.  

This is my first time to use this guy. He has been my BFF's hair dresser for many years, and as well as several models that I have worked with.  

He is now making "house calls" and so I jumped on the band wagon to join in with three other friends today and get my hair cut by him. 

I went in leaning more towards the first picture in the above collage, with the option of wanting to be able to do style number two if I wanted.  Picture number three, was just a longer version of picture number one, if that's what it needed to be to do the curls.  

So anyways.... 

If you are new here welcome, this parts for you.   A couple of months ago in March, I recently had just cut six inches off my hair.  So, this is round number two, and today I cut off almost two inches, and added layers. However, still thinking about going even shorter.  Just can't make up my mind. 

This is what I left with today.  

I had little light left to work with when attempting to take pictures of myself and hair.  I figured the side angle lets you see more of the layers.

As I "attempted" to take pictures of my hair, for YOU.  All of the sudden, I hear birds going crazy in my back yard.  As I look over, I then see my pet lion cat, holding down a baby bird with his paws.  

So, I of course run out to rescue the baby bird.  The birds parents were going crazy, flying and chirping, trying their hardest to draw the attention on them and away from the baby.  

The Lion. (Shilo)

Morgan was NOT happy about any of this.

Isn't it cute?  Look at its wild feathers on it's head.  
We let it go and mom and dad were thankful.

So then it got dark out and I tried to snap a few more of what it actually looks like. 
This is all I got. 

<span class=
This one was before the bird situation, and I pulled the back up in a clip to get an idea of what it would like ever shorter.  

(and no I did not touch up this photo at all or change my eye color - those are mine, thanks!)

So what do you think? 


<span class=

Daddy brought home two movies tonight.  We watched the girly funny one first "Bridal War" or something like that.  It was alright, but a little too girly for me.  Then Morgan started to get really tired and climbed up on mommy.  Daddy thought it was so cute and I asked him to snap a photo because I have very little photos of me with my kids.  "Her eyes are as heavy as bowling balls", daddy said.

I love this girl.

Don't mind the brown shirt with green sweat pants.  I had brown on during the day, and got home put on comfy sweats. 

So should I leave it or go even shorter? 

Mark's response is cut it short, I will like you with what ever cut you go with, but you have been talking about this short cut for weeks, go for it.   In truth, he actually likes short hair (and long).  But he isn't one of those guys that really has a preference of short or long.  Which is good for me.  

So, I actually can't make up my mind.  

I went in there today, thinking dramatic.  I was walking out of there with short hair.  Instead, I walked out with a pretty rock-n-roll layered look.  I do like it.  I really do.  But..... will I also REALLY like the shorter cut? 


As that song by Ashlee Simpson goes that I am singing in my head right now "L.O.V.E."  

"All my girl stand in a circle, and clap your hands, this is for you.  No matter what you see me through."

So 'girls' what should I do, LEAVE IT or CUT IT???

On Sunday I am going to try the curl look, and see if it can look picture number two of Jessica Simpson.  I have to make my mind up by Monday, for the guy is making one last house call up here in our area that day, and he said he will cut more if I decided over the weekend I rather go short. 

Help!!!

Okay, now watching movie number two "The Uninvited." A scary movie.  I hate scary movies. Honey, however on the other hand is excited, and more excited that it's in Blue Ray.  BOYS!!!

oh go short, its summer and it grows back lol

C ♥ said...

I def think you should go shorter.

It looks FAB the way it is. Really.

But, I just cut my hair into that a-line short in back long in front thing, and I went back to get it shorter, 2 times, and i love it now.

I think short and cute is fab for summer!!! do it!!!

It looks great! Although you would look great with your head shaved, too!

If you're still wanting to go shorter, then do it. I'm sure it would look great and if you don't like it, it will grow out.

I'm looking at how little Hunter is in your wedding photo below - he's really grown since then!

I can't believe what I'm abtou to say, but I agree with Mark - I think you should go shorter! I had that layer cut that you now have a couple of years back and for some reason, maybe because it was thinned out at the bottom, it caused me to get really bad split-ends. Also (I know this because my sister is a hairdresser), the back of the hair grows faster than any other part of the head so you have to keep that in mind too.

The first pic of the hair really reminds me of Heidi Klum's "LOB": The Long Bob, which I guess is the IT haircut nowadays (who cares, right?) but it suits you. I say, style it wavy, curly, and however else you like, see how it works and if you think you'll like the shorter do then go for it!

P.S. We're getting the plane tickets in June, and it will most likely be for the first week in August (2nd through 8th). I'll write more later. We're now off to Josh's half-marathon.

I think it looks beautiful, but I agree with many of the others... cut it :) From someone who just took 8 inches off my hair... it was fun! In a thrilling and "wow this is really different for me" sort of way :)

Jennifer said...

Great haircut! YOu can get away with just about anything girlfriend! I say go for two more inches... You know it will grow back before you know it...and you can still throw it into a ponytail!

Poor birdy!
Remember that day you rescued the bird at the entrance to your house? You're such an awesome animal lover.

Keri said...

Bethany said...

I'd probably cut it. It looks GREAT but I always try to be adventurous and cut, cut because it grows so fast! :)
