My hair is best long. It’s as simple as that.
It looks okay short, but it just doesn’t feel like me. I think the shortest that it has been in the last 8 or 9 years is somewhere right about here:
The problem is, I have the 5 year itch. I usually go and get somewhere between 10 and 20 inches cut from my tresses, and follow that decision up with 6-9 months of self loathing.
So here’s the deal. I want to change it up, without totally sacrificing my length. I’m intrigued by this partial shaved trend. I don’t think I could commit half of my head to it, but maybe something à la Ellie Goulding?
My question, how does this work with VERY curly hair? And how do you go about growing it out without looking like your kinder-gardener got your hair with safety scissors while you were napping on the couch?
