I cut my hair short (gradually got shorter) April 26, 2008.  It’s almost two years since I’ve had a short haircut.  I’m now contemplating on whether or not I should let it grow out into a bob or longer.  I like the short cut, but after two years, I am BORED!


A lot of people, whether on the street, on blogger, or just my friends/family have commented on my hair & how nice it looks.  I figured I’d let everyone know who does it, and the products I use to maintain my hair in between my weekly(yes, weekly) salon visits.

  1. My hair is shorter than yours and I recently decided i should grow it back out. I say go for it!! if its something you really want to do.

  2. u know always love the short hair on u : )

    PS – I do love the MAC oil control lotion. I feel like my makeup still looks good by the end of the day, sometimes when i don’t wear it, my t zones are shiny : )

  3. I just cut my hair into a chin length bob with tons of layers and I love it! I have always loved short hair cuts but always contemplated cutting it..I wish I would of cut it sooner! I suggest you do what you feel but I’m a short hair lover!!

  4. Yeah I love short but I love the bob too. my issue is the boob was way too hot for summer, but at least i had enough hair to put it in a ponytail lol

  5. You really suit short hair. 🙂

    I cut most of my hair off when I was about 15 to where it was just a few inches long, and have slowly been growing it out for the past couple of years. I didnt even mean to grow it out, I just didnt get a haircut for quite a while and liked how it looked when it was longer!

  6. You look great either way! =) I’m a bit partial to long hair, but cut mine in a bob and loved it. I’m currently growing it out again since I’ve become bored with it. It’s about about inch past my shoulders now. Yeah! =)
