Default What do you think. . . keep it growing long, or chop it off?

Hi Curlies!

I've been in a bit of a hair rut these past few weeks - it just seems blah and boring. I'm trying to decide if chopping it off would make me feel better about it. My main goal for the past few months has been to grow it out - I've always wanted long curls. So, I'm obviously a little reluctant to chop it off after growing it out for this long!

Here are some pictures with my hair both long and short. . . so, which to do?!? Chop it off, or just get a good cut and keep the length?

I like the shorter length best. It pops up your curls. Your hair is pretty fine, and it looks like your curls would loosen a lot at a long length.

Keep growing and see if you like it! You can always cut later if you don't!

It does seem like the length is pulling out the curl, but they both look great!

This is true! Try it and see what happens! You'll never know until you try it.

I've let my hair grow, but I'm thinking of cutting it to about the length of your 2nd pic, just below shoulder. The weight pulls my curls out when longer.
