Should I big chop my own hair or go to a stylist? I'm thinking about doing it this summer. :)
I would recommend going to a stylist. They can better figure out exactly how much hair to cut, and can easily see every section of hair on your head. Also, getting a big chop on wet hair really isn't so bad. I'd venture to say that most stylists can figure out how to cut dead ends without making you look ridiculous. Your hair will look different, more voluminous, but that's the nature of shorter hair, not a mistake, so don't worry if you're taken aback by the way it looks. You'll style it to your taste and it will look great. Remember, it's about the journey, not the destination.
