But go as short as you dare, because once cut it will just be a little too long and you wish you had gone shorter.  Also it will grow back Smile
 
Go on have some fun



For anyone who cuts hair... if I go this short in the back... will clippers have to be used along the neckline? I hate when hair is like shaved in the back and it looks ugly when it starts growing back. I usually get my haircut only every 2 months. I don't want to have more upkeep if I go shorter!

I'll make my appointment near the end of March. I'm anxious though... I want it cut now, but I try to make my highlights last as long as possible!

Clippers cuts feel awesome, i get a 1-1/2 on the back and side with a 4 or 5 on the top.  My wife hates the 4 on top, but it lasts longer.  Dont fear the clippers!  If you like the cut, they can use clippers to do the back or a pair of scissors, either will do the job.
 Good luck, and dont be scared!  The shorter cut makes you look and feel more confident about yourself.

Have a look and let me know

Lemonlime,
 
You won't need clippers for the back, and I think the combination of this style and Poshs older style would look really good together.  I can't wait to see the results and i'm glad that you have found a style you want. Thumbs%20Up

I cross posted with Conrad and also wanted to send these pics into this thread for lemonlime. I thought of your conundrum when printing these pics for my wife.  She doesn't want it really short again and I have read your fear of going too short.  Hope they help.

This one and Victoria B's hair don't have to be achieved with clippers. It depends on the stylist. Anything an inch or less can be achieved with clippers, but a good stylist can do scissor over comb. It depends on their preference.

Since you have a little time, call up your stylist and ask for ten minutes of her time. Ask your questions. "Can I have this long in front with this short in back?" "Will you use clippers?" You shouldn't get a haircut unless you're confident with the stylist and what you'll look like.

You will get you hair cut short and you will love it.  Then you will want it shorter b/c it will be easier to handle and "do" in the morning/evening.  Then you will go hunting this pic down to show your stylist:)  That is where my wife is in her stage of short hair.
 
Good luck, bring both photos to your stylist, and get her opinion.  It will always grow back for free, but it costs you to cut it shorter again!
 
Post some picks if you can, i will do the same of my wife.

Predictively encouraging, or aggressively creepy?  I will assume your intent is the former.  Reading your first sentence, though, I imagined it being voiced by Hogan's Heroes' Sargeant Schultz (heh).

Definately encouraging, been thru it with my wife, and only after months of encouragement, did she get it cut shorter.  Positive reinforcement is always better when it comes to someones fears about their looks.
 
I will watch my wording better;)

Hey Lemonlime,  Her name is Rebecca Clumm and she was one of the first batch of contestants on Grease You're The One That I Want.  My wife's stylist likes to use a razor for a softer look and better growing.  She makes an appointment every 6 weeks.  Here we are 3 days from her appointment and she still looks great.

tba99, 

Can you post a pic of the back and sides?  That would be helpful to show my wife.
Thanks

I will try and get some pics Thursday.  She is leaving for a week on Friday so it may not happen but I can let you know.  Again, I have seen some people get funky when pics are mentioned but not posted so I am not promising.
Conrad - sounds like your wife liked the above shots.

My appointment is next Friday (March 30) but I think I'm just trimming it and re-doing my highlights because I'm going to the beach for spring break, and I want to be able to put my hair up in a ponytail.. but after that, I'm chopping it again! (end of May)
