.short.

I'm taking a big step here.

I am deciding to abandon my allegiance to my husband and his LOOOVE of long hair, and I am cutting it off.

Honey, I never was a long haired type of girl, anyway.  Far too glamorous for a gal like me.  Besides, when your sister was here she reminded me of a time when we were dating and you called her and described me as having "the cutest short hair"...along with other descriptions that probably included sexy, lovable, ingeniously witty, talented, smart, beautiful...I don't know...I'm just guessing.

So, I'm thinking.  If you loved me once with short hair, you could probably do it again.

This is where you all come in.  I need some suggestions.  Some help deciding. 

One thing is for sure. 
 I want to be blonde.  Really blonde.  Dare I say platinum?  
(Though the thought of upkeep does make me nervous)

Here are my cut options:
   

a.  my friend jenna
 (I'm sorry.  I did not ask for permissions to post this)

Meet Jenna...again.  You may remember her from this story.  She is my friend that looks darling in any cut/color that she chooses.  But, as you might remember from this story, things don't go so well when I try to copy her styles.  I do love, love, love this cut.  Doesn't she look sassy even with what appears to be a lil smokie in her hands?

b.  beautiful girl from swell.com  (follow the link)

This cut just speaks to me.  It says I'm a laid-back, surfer, let-the-summer-take-you-way, I love the sunshine, kind of carefree girl.  And  yes please on her body too.  I'll take a double order!

c.  The Victoria A-line



This is a good, classic standby.  I just wonder if my hair is thick enough to pull it off?


So, cast your votes now!  What will it be....the suspense is killing me!

I am glad to hear your doing it! You'll feel better about yourself which means you'll look better!I say a mix of B &C I've tried the C & my hair was way too thin I really didn't like it!

Fawn said...

I say Beckham all the way! I did it when I was prego with Chloe and loved it! My hair is thinner than yours and it was a good cut! Do you remember? I came and saw you and you loved it! I remember!
Ps- did you get my message about Tuesday? :0)

B. I've seen the others far to often. For the record, you could pull any of em off! Be sure to post the after!

My vote is A or C. You'll look darling with short hair.

LiNdSeY said...

I vote C!! :)

jayniemoon said...

Okay,
You always look cute with short hair--that's how I know you!
I say C. But what about your old cut from the BYUSA posters??

I am BYU.

A all the way.... love it. i think it would look so good on you. i actually thought it was you for a minute in the pic.
love the blond idea too. wish i could do that.

loved loved talking to you today. wish we could do lunch a few times a week. that would be fun.

I too am going to cut my hair here pretty soon (but for sure before our little getaway in May) so let me know which one you choose so I can possibly copy it and we can be "blonde" twins! I'm kidding. I already know I have to go super short to get the 10 inches to donate. I'm holding out as long as possible - though the ponytails are getting old.

Hi Ali I found your blog and got hooked!! I have serious blog envy. I read one post and couldn't stop reading, you're hilarious. I think I would follow this blog even if I didn't know you. By far, the best blog I've seen! Tami Gresko
Go with C.

Tarah said...

I vote B it's a bit more unique! By the way the pictures are gorgeous- even though they are not crystal clear- the 16x20's look adorable in the girls room and the fog shot looks awesome in this cool frame. LOVE THEM ALL!! Thanks a million

Lori said...

I really like A but C is safer to start with. If you don't like C after it's cut, then go for A next. (if that's possible) B looks edgy and fun for pictures but might drive you crazy with the bangs in your eyes.

Oler Family said...

my vote is A or C. Maybe start with C then when you want a change again you can still cut it into A...did that make any sense? I love them both and you would look fantastic in any of them!

kelly said...

I know I don't know too much about style... but I think B is super cute and oh so sassy! You could pull it off! B is my vote.

Chantel said...

I covet the swell girl's hair too... in fact I posted about that same chick when I was contemplating a cut. So I vote B!! (Bonus: if you decide you don't like it, you could most likely have it cut into either of the other two cuts!)

It seems that I recall you with really short hair on a cruise we took to Mexico. There was another gal on board who also had really short hair who seemed to be hitting on you. So don't go too short so as to have some gal say Lez-be friends. Just some fatherly advice which is not worth much.,,,just a thought. As for me, I'd rather have fingers than toes, I'd rather have eyes than a nose, and as for my hair, I am glad its all there.....I'll be awful sad when it goes. Love from you gray haired dad.

Brooke said...

I vote A. If you're gonna go short - GO SHORT!! Someday I'm gonna get up the courage and chop it all off.

Marie said...

I love short hair too Ali. However I do have to say you have looked beyond gorgeous with your long locks. You are always so stylish and classy. You're pretty any way you chop it...I think my vote is for C which I think is winning anyway. I always go shorter than I intended too and then regret it. It's just the safer cut that like many others said you could go shorter with later. Can't wait to see what you go with!

Jen Giorgis said...

Oh this is fun...I like B but witha little bit shorter bangs. I like her color as well. As for her body??? well, don't we all wish it was that easy to just order it!!! Look forward to the final results.

Kasey said...

I'm feelin a little Posh action.

(~: Ali :~) said...

You would look beautiful with any haircut... but i think haircut B is totally you!C would be my second choice.
