Hair Crisis


Looking back it feels like I've changed my hair style a million different times. Going through all my old pictures, on the other hand, showed me that my hair hasn't really changed that dramatically at all. But I think any kind of change, no matter how small, seems like such a big deal to the person that has to live with it that it feels like there has been more change than maybe actually occurred  What I've got out of these pictures is that I was blonde for a really long time, and you can see how I gradually got to a brunette ombre look. I also realized how my hair got so long: I haven't cut it in years. I've almost gone too long without cutting it. I'm afraid of turning into that person who doesn't know when it's time to cut their hair. I think I'm finally ready to get rid of it and go back to a shorter style. Of course both have their pros and cons. Here are some pros and cons of cutting my hair:

Pro: I won't shed long strands of hair that end up everywhere
Con: It will just be short strands of hair.

Con: I won't be able to do vintage Veronica Lake-inspired curls.
Pro: I couldn't do them anyway. (I've tried.)

Con: I love the beach wave look on long hair.
Pro: I hate how my hair looks any way other than beach waves.

I don't think I'm going to go as short as I used to have it, but shorter nonetheless. And I haven't decided if I want to go back to blonde or keep it darker or even ombre. Going back to blonde seems really boring to me, but it's starting to get boring how it is now. (I just can't win.) Clearly this is a monumental decision and should not be taken lightly. I gathered some inspiration of what I think I want it to look like. Comments? Concerns? Suggestions? Help me!
