Poor Jes! I feel your pain in a similar yet different way. I would do almost anything for long beautiful hair. Mine is thin and has no character whatsoever…just boring flat hair (with only one wave in it). Add to that the fact that the front sides won’t grow (when it’s in a ponytail it looks like Juno’s hair from…Juno). It’s quite disgusting. I spent most of my life with boy short hair…and was always mistake for a boy. Every time I try to do something with it, it just looks awkward and stupid. Thus my current hairstyle, which I’ve had for about 3 years and had back in junior high/high school. Sometimes I want to cut most of it off again…but how and why? I’d just be miserable again. So, my advice is to try something different, but not drastic…just a little change…how about some nice modern bangs? A slightly lighter/darker shade? If you like that, and Neil doesn’t flip, then change it a little more a few months from then. That way you ease yourself into something, but it isn’t Earth shattering. I’ve seen too many tears shed over bad/drastic haircuts.
