I have come to a crossroads. And it involves my hair. I don't know whether to keep growing it out or cut it all off. And by "cut it all off" I mean not short-short, but somewhere between chin and shoulder length.
I've been growing it out for a couple of years now, I guess since my wedding? With the thought that it would be nice to have long hair for awhile, but not necessarily as a permanent state. I like the long hair--it's pretty and fun, and in some ways it's easy because I can just toss it back in a ponytail and be done with it.
But I like short hair too. My hair curls better when it's short, and it's faster to wash, and if I skip a shower one day it doesn't look quite as messy. Also, Callum has started pulling my hair regularly, particularly when he's nursing, and that's quite painful. I wouldn't mind having it out of his way.
People seem to have strong opinions about whether I look better with short hair or long, and unfortunately there's no consensus, so it's hard to decide on that count, too.
Here's my hair currently (or at least recently-ish):
And here's how I wear it most of the time, because it's a mess when it's not freshly washed and also because I want to keep it out of Callum's reach:
And here's how it looked when I wore it short:
And here it is partly grown out, so somewhere in the middle:
So what do you think? Should I keep it as it is, or cut it all off? Or something in between?
