Your future FIL has BSL hair?!
Does he keep it braided?
Perhaps you have hair that the longer it gets the more it corkscrews. My hair gets looser as it gets longer so wants it grows past the shoulders I see the length.
I HAVE to get some big hoop earrings if I go that short.
Well, I plan to get a trim first and once the weather warms up, then I will go short. It is too cold to go that short right now! I suppose that by next winter I will have enough length to keep me warm. LOL
