yep thats how i felt in april when i cut mine to ear level. it was so long. It was hard to deal with but instead of getting layers he talked me into cutting it really short. I hated it. I felt like a kid. But for some reason my hair is growing back really fast. its already past my shoulders now and usually it takes a year and a half to get there when I cut it in the past. Now i know never again will in get it cut and I trim my own hair now.
