Short hair for a long haired girl

I have only had short hair once ever in my life and I hated it. Now, that being said, it was a bad hair cut. But lately a few people I know have gotten these amazing looking short cuts done to their previously long hair and I have been really into them. Its got me thinking and looking and considering.

I am getting my hair cut after christmas, so, its something to consider. Now, that being said, I would never go shorter then my shoulders. I know, wimp, but I think I would freak out and feel really awful with short-short hair. My hair has always been long. Like REALLY long.

Exhibit A: High school Prom photo (1997)

Exhibit B: College Grad photo (that’s my gay boyfriend Andrew with me) (2002)

Exhibit C. The growing out stages of the aforementioned bad short haircut. (2004)

Exhibit D. February 2007

Exhibit E. Crap-tastic picture of me before my super-awesome-i-got-bangs hair cut in (April 2010)

(Wow, that was a photo record of weight gain, lovely!)

My experience with Lora at Fringe in TO was soooooo amazing and she gave me the bangs I always wanted, bless her and it has made be a little hair-brave I think. So, I submit for your opinions, my shorter hairstyle considerations.

I like this one the best.

But with bangs. (No way I am giving them up!)

This is more the length I am looking for.

Or, more the length of Mary Heather’s hair  and style in this one. (Although now that I previewed this post, MH and I have REALLY similar hair already, so maybe this is too much of a safe bet.)

What do you think? I know my MM ladies love a hair post, so give it to me!

And for reference, here is a sort-of current pic of me, it was taken in October, my hair pretty much looks the same except for being desperate for some highlights.

Sorry, sorry, sorry

Yeah, I have no excuse except laziness and being busy. Lame. Anyhow, I am two months behind so I am going to do a quick picture rundown of October and November!

I finished knitting my first sweater!!

I am not as thrilled with it as I could be BUT it was a very informative learning experience and I am now about half way done my second cardi and I think I will like it much better.

Phill and I went apple picking at Spring Meadows and this led me too way more forays into canning; vanilla apple butter, chai apple sauce, lemon-thyme apple butter (Phill’s) and I even made some dill pickles! (The dill pickles are to freaking die for. I call the “For-Serious Dill Pickles”.)

Halloween came and went in a blur. I won two costume awards. (Even though I am not thrilled with any of the pictures of me from Halloween this year, this one with my awards isn’t so bad.)

November has been a blur! We made a quick trip to Toronto to see ROH and I of course made a trip to Romni for some yarn therapy. And I met Mark Brisco! (This is only going to be a big deal to me.)

I have also been having some great luck at the thrift stores. My vintage jar collection is growing more by the day it seems.

And I found some other really great things lately.

And of course a ton of knitting has been going on. Mostly Christmas knitting, so I can’t share a lot of pics but I did take a break and make myself this lovely green thing! Called “The Limey Bastard” hat. I really like how it turned out.

Phill became a beardo for Movember. I don’t think the beard will be going anywhere soon. I actually don’t mind it so much with his long hair.

I had a job interview this week that went very well and I have another scheduled for next Wednesday so hopefully soon I will be back to work.  I have really enjoyed my time off, but I am starting to get bored and miss having extra money, so back to the grind I go! December is shaping up to be busy, busy, busy, but hopefully I will be more on the ball then I was in October and November : )
