Haircut poll

Last night on Shear Genius, they had women with gloriously long hair. The shortest, I think, was 28", and the longest was 68". I love long hair, although that last is a bit much. It was lovely, though.

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.)
