I had jonbaker measure my hair. From top of the head to the bottom of the longest strands, it's 26". I was mildly disappointed, since I haven't had it cut in 16 years, and I haven't cut off any ends in 6.
I'm thinking seriously of going to a local beauty salon and getting it trimmed. I'm just terrified of hairdressers - they all seem to hate long hair and I don't want to lose any more length than necessary. I just want it trimmed, not styled - there's no real point in me getting my hair styled and I don't want to fuss with it anyway.
My hair is curly and fine.
ETA: I bought a pair of barber scissors. I'll get my husband to trim off the straggly ends tonight. (Scissors will be useful in general - I can dust the split ends and jonbaker can do beard and moustache trims as necessary without using my crafting scissors.)
Should I trim my hair?
OMG, six years since a trim? Trim it NOW.
26"? Wow. Yeah, trim it.
26"? Not long enough.
No one sees it. Why bother?
If yes, how should I do it?
Hairdresser. They're not scary.
Hairdresser, even if they are scary.
For a trim? Get a sharp pair of scissors and do it yourself.
For a trim? Just have your husband or a friend do it.
Get more than a trim - get it *styled*. Even if no one sees it.
