Chop or Really Chop?

Let's cut to the chase.  Here is my hair currently.

It is LONG!  I think it is the longest it has ever been.  In my whole life.  So long that is gets caught underneath anything I throw over my shoulder. Annoying. And long enough to get pinned between my back and the chair/couch/wall that I am leaning on restricting the motion of my head. Very annoying.  Besides those I present Exhibits A and B showing that my hair is not cut out to be this long.

Exhibit A:  The random lump of hair that gets caught up around my neck.  I think it is decides it wants to be in the front and then gets stage fright and tries to retreat to the back unsuccessfully.

Exhibit B:  Undecisive hair that just hangs out on my shoulder looking weird. 

I've decided I'm going to change things up.  But here's the debate.  Option 1 or Option 2? 

Option 1:  Cut off 4ish inches to get a look similar Ms. Lisa Loeb and let my bangs grow out so that it would eventually turn into the hairstyle shown on Leighton Meester (my suggested doppelganger)

Or.... drum roll please....

Option 2:  Cut off 8 inches or more to donate to Pantene Beautiful Lengths and get a short do ala Kristen Cavallari or Reese Witherspoon.

My appointment is tomorrow evening, so leave me a comment and let me know what you think!  I can't make up my mind!  And hubby says he doesn't care as long as I don't shave my head.


  1. I'm partial to the Reese look for you. Go for it!

  2. Hi Elissa! I have donated my hair to beautiful lengths three times, the first in honor of Sherry Grandjean and the second two, in memory of her. Every time, it felt SOOOO good to know I was helping someone and it is totally exhilarating to be so bold. Hair grows back....I say go for it! :^) ( pressure! :^))

  3. I say Kristen or Reece :)
