A little stir-crazy

Well, I'm not sure if it's "stir-crazy" exactly.  And I'm not sure where this is all coming from.  But I've got this crazy impulse to cut off all my hair.  Not buzz-style, a la Demi Moore in Jane.  But my hair is quite a good length.  If I had a decent photo with my hair down, I'd show you, but alas -- I'm always pulling it back in a ponytail.  And it's driving me nuts.

So, here's what I'm thinking. 

Short Hair

I think because as I was walking into my building yesterday, my jaw about dropped when I saw this woman's amazing, short-choppy haircut.  Like short-short.  Like, I've done that before, and man, growing that out was a .. well, I don't usually use that language here. 

A-hem.  But I can't help it.  I'd love to go for that upper left corner -- choppy + longer in the front.  But um, I'm not sure that would work exactly.  But I love + completely trust my stylist, so I know he'll figure out what's best for me.  And, although that pic of Ginnifer Goodwin in the center isn't the most flattering of her, she's so darn cute!  But maybe there's a reason why I couldn't really find any short haircuts on women with round faces... at least, cute hair cuts -- only bad ones!  Shoot...

Well, my appointment is for next week.  Anyone who wants to urge me to re-consider, you have one week to do so :)!

*Sidenote: the last time I went in with a collage of photos similar to this, my stylist said, "So, I'm guessing you want short and... blonde?" Keep in mind, I'm Filipino. But seriously, google images is not quite stocked with photos of ethnic women with chic haircuts. At least, not with my search terms, apparently. But, yes, Kelly's comment cracked me up :D

I chopped mine a few months ago~similar to the upper left photo, and, I love it! It's flirty and fun!

every once in awhile I have the urge to chop. I am growing it long now, guess we'll see how long that lasts.

I say you go with Ginnifer Goodwin's length in the front (in the top pic) and then have it slightly shorter (and a little stacked-- but not too much) in the back. It would look SO cute n you! And would be a little funky... maybe with some big sideswept bangs, too.

You ladies are the best! Merium, your hair looks awesome! Abbie, thanks for the input -- I do think I'll be leaning towards Ginnifer -- in a note to my stylist (he does all bookings online), I told him I was thinking short, but would probably want to be talked out of it :D So G's looks manageable :D I'll update with what happens :D!

More Treasures!
