I love getting my hair cut. Right now I'm going pretty regularly, every 3 months or so, just for small trims to keep my shape looking good while I'm growing it out (trying to get to waist length!). But before that, I would go 6 months to a year between cuts, just so that when I did go in, I could cut tons of it off. There's something I really love about changing up the look of my hair that I just don't get from regular trims (I know this probably sounds weird, but I like seeing piles of hair on the floor - this scares most people, but I love it). I'm trying to force myself to keep it long to make my WL goal, but I have a feeling that once I get there, I'll be chopping it off right away, lol! But I do understand the fear of a bad hair cut - I had a terrible cut in high school that literally looked like 3 shelves of hair sticking out of my head (shudder). But I think I've gotten much better at communicating what I want since then, and haven't really had any major problems (even when I was just going to SuperCuts and getting a plain old wet cut). Now that I have a deva-trained stylist, I don't worry at all.
