Short or Long

 photo shortlong_zps430e39a7.jpg
Ok, so I've been wanting to cut my hair again, but there are a few people that prefer my hair long. Not that it matters or anything. But I have my "long" days too. The problem with long hair is I NEVER do it. It is most likely (like as in this very moment) in a bun on top of my head. I do have other hairdos that I like to do (dutch braids, faux shave braid, etc), but I'm usually too lazy. When my hair is short I ALWAYS do it. If I don't have it down, it's in a cute little "princess" thing.

So I figured- why not ask the most stylish people I know? Should I keep growing my hair out (the photos above show the length it is now, I can't go much longer because my hair is too thin) or cut it again into the shag bob?? Vote below and share your feelings in the comments... You know, if you have as much feelings about my hair as I do...

While we're at it, blunt or side swept bang?
(this post is strictly to help an indecisive girl make a decision, that is all. Oh, and I'm not someone that regrets cutting my hair, I have had it short many times.)

you are gorgeous no matter your hair and i know you know it! i Have that thin hair too that we can't grow to be REALLY long and so sometimes I struggle with this too. you just want a change !!! i felt this way too and then i dyed my hair which i am happy i did cause i have never done (lol) and now I am happy with it for the moment. I kindof want bangs just like yours but I love your hair how-to's so if cutting your hair will give me more tutorials I am all for that :D :D either way you look amazing and i love your blog :D

I think you suit all of the above hairstyles but the shorter bob with the blunt fringe is especially gorgeous!

I think both are cute on you! Love the red lip stick!

i love how your hair looks long, and i am all about the blunt bangs! i think they look awesome on you.

i get where you are coming from though. my hair is long and all i do is put it up in a bun :/ but i know that if i chopped it, i would miss that option SO much. and i would regret it every time i see a hair tutorial on a blog or pinterest. haha.

Haha, I see you're finally posing this question to the masses! When we chatted about it before, I think I was undecided. Seeing these pictures right next to one another? Still undecided. I definitely love the short with the bangs, but the length it is now is great too. I don't know that you'd need/want to go any longer though--especially if you know you won't style it.

I don't know! I love them both! Maybe the longer a little more...but with the straight-across bangs. Maybe? ; ]

love the side swept bang look!

When it comes to what to wear or how to do my hair, I'm very decisive so I shall give you my opinion. :-)
You really rock both long and short hair, however I do think the blunt bangs does look best. And because its going to warm up soon, I always go for short in spring/summer.
Do you have any thing special coming up that makes you want longer hair? The only reason why I'm growing mine now is I'm in a wedding in may but come June, it's time for a cut for me lol
And yes, I totally relate to just end up pulling back longer hair, and then no one really gets to see it.
So I voted short with the blunt bangs. :-)

I like them both, but especially short :)

Jennifer said...

I like the long look on you. Or if it was short, maybe something different than the photos above.

I do know the feeling though. My hair is long and it's ALWAYS in a bun, pulled in a clip or in a ponytail.

I'm not crazy about the shoulder length hair. I do prefer it a little longer or VERY short.
And I'm not crazy about the blunt bangs either, Love the side bangs!

One person said shave it all! Haha, I vote for keep it long!

Jane Adensam said...

You look absolutely gorgeous either way but I love the short! Perfect for spring, super cute and lively. You can totally rock short hair.

Kaycie Eddie said...

I love the short on you!!

Elise Frederickson said...

Um, I voted for both short and long, so maybe that was pointless. Seriously though, you look beautiful both ways. (Like, not just saying that, I really can't decide which I prefer.) Therefor, I say, do whatever you want. And if you don't know what you want, I say chop it, because it will always grow out again.

Stephanie said...

i'm not a person who could ever have short hair, but i quite like it on you, lady, and extensions would work if you're having a long hair day.

Marsa said...

i like long hair but thats just because i look like a boy when its short haha
but as for the bangs, BLUNT! omg you look amazing with those blunt bangs. dooo it :)

I look ridiculous with short hair, but the same cannot be said for you! I love yours short! I'm definitely guilty of just putting mine up most of the time and would love to cut it short, but some days long can be fun, too. I know hair grows back, but it can be such a conundrum!

I really love your long hair! But I have to admit I am getting pretty tired of my own long air and kind of want to cut it too! Haha!

Dinah Gacon said...

I voted short on your instagram pic....you would look so pretty with a bolder bang and piecey texture!!!

You could rock any style and be so beautiful lady!!

xo Dinah @ sunshine super glam

Emma Frances said...

My vote is short and blunt! I just cut my hair and I just love having short hair! I'm the same way as you--I don't do my hair when it is long but I almost always do it when it's short.

One of those moments where I wish I was in Utah just so I could shop at this store!
