Five Words I never thought I'd say...

My hair is too long!

This has been coming on for a while. At first it was little things...my curls drooped. Then it got more serious... my locks all tangled in the neck of my shirt. Then it was code red...ponytails everyday.

I don't want to do anything drastic. But I think, given my face shape, I'm going to have to do some cutting. I really need some bangs. Really. Nothing severe. But I need a shorter layer to soften this fivehead I've got going. Not even a real bang...a one-row fringe just below my nose so that I could swoop it over to the side.

Here's the problem. Every time I go to the mirror with the scissors, I chicken out. This has happened three times this month already. Whenever I go to snip, I hear all these voices saying "How can you cut all that hair off!" The 'trim' would take four or five inches off. But it's just one row. Why am I being such a chicken? It's six or seven locks. Cause I'm too chicken to go more than one row.

I'm going to end up on the Maury show...you know how they bring those sorry women out who haven't cut their hair since Ford was in office. Their hair trails sorrily behind them. They have on those elastic waist pants and knit tops. Sigh.

Help me. Tell me to stop being a wimp and cut the six locks. It's just hair. It will look better. And if it doesn't, it's just one row and I can hide the dirty deed.

I think a bang would look nice...maybe an asymetric one. Can your consultant style/cut hair?...

I love a great bang, but your locks are so fabulous you're gonna need someone else to hold the scissors ;-)

Hmmm, I wonder if I'll ever reach that stage when I'll say those 5 words.

DO you wanna wait until you're absolutely sure, so that you won't have any regrets?

Girl, you are too funny. I don't know what I will say or how I will feel when that thought will be confirmed by my length. I will say I was in LA this past weekend and I hurried up and got that hair off my neck cause it was a bit hot!!!! We wait...
