Am I making a mistake?
Posted 02 October 2008 - 02:40 PM
I mean for something much less important, but just as trivial: for my hair.
At the moment I hate my hair, it's long-ish, the color is disgusting, and I spend everyday with it tied up.
I made an appointment for this Saturday to chop it all off (to my chin) and change the color. Now, a few people have mentioned how silly I am to do this before my wedding as my hair won't have time to grow back, but I can't possibly leave my hair the way it is for the next 7 months.
So, this is how my hair is EVERDAY sans crown and sans drunken FI in the background LOL:
And this is basically what my hair looks like ALL THE TIME when it's down ... Flat and boring ... and the color is horrid:
So I want some opinions girls ... if I chop my hair off to a style like this:
(longer in the front then the back ... but with a side bang on top) ... will I regret it come my wedding day?
I'm torn!! And sorry this is such a long post ... I'm just really unsure now ... even my hairdresser thinks I might regret my decision because she knows I'm going to get married next year!!

It will grow back to length long enough for it to be pulled back in some way..and what the hell..it's hair....it grows, and the people that work in the spa/salon..it's their job to make you look beautiful no matter the length/color!
Tulum..uhh I mean Cancun, MX

Once it's gone, it's not coming back that fast!
BTW - I am totally considering one of the hair styles above after the wedding too!

If you really think that you will like it; then go for it!
Imho, your hair is cute the way it is!
I can share my personal experience though.. bf I got engaged; I got the same hair cut u want (exact) and darkened my hair. I loved it for a month or so... now, its a lot of upkeep. Now, I am desperately trying to grow it out (bangs and short hair) and its a tough road!!!
My hair constantly looks terrible; I have to keep it up all the time. I personally am not wearing a veil and I can't picture myself without a veil and with short hair on my wedding day.
Alas, I wait for it to grow...
Either way, you have such a cute face - you will make a gorgeous bride! And worse case scenario, if you cut it and don't like it as your day get closer - get hair extensions!

7 months left.. you could go with about 2 or 3 inches off without freaking when it's your turn!!

Thanks for the input ladies. ... and Sunsetbride *blush* thanks ...
I think the color def. needs to be done ... but I won't be so drastic with the cut then ... just trim it up a bit and make it a bit more structured.
I'll have to post pics on here when it's done too ... ;-) Hehehe

If you can picture yourself with that short haircut, in your wedding dress and everything else, then maybe you can do it. There is always the possibility of adding hairpeices the day of...
Although, my personal opinion would be to leave it alone. Perhaps get some super light highlights. In the winter I usually get a few super light highlights and then some low lights, and I feel like it gives me dimension. My hair is super fine and flat as well.
Orrrr, you could meet yourself halfway and get a long bob. Shoulder skimming, like Nicole Richie's hair last year, I could find some pics, if you want.
I actually posted some previlusly, cuz I wanted to cut my hair before my wedding too, but I ended up not doing it.

I didn't get THAT severe a cut ... and there's still a bit of length to it (no shaved parts at the back like the Beckham cut) but it is much shorter ... but the color is back to normal and I'm very pleased with the cut. I think it'll grow out JUST enough in the next 7 months and everything will be great for the wedding.
I'm sorry I didn't listen girls ... I promise I'll be behave myself next time...
Here's proof of my misbehaviour ...
