If you get it cut, you wont have to mess with a ponytail...  That was my wifes biggest hangup, giving up her ponytail.
 
Have fun on spring break!

Yeah, but if I cut it all off, I won't have any hair left to put in a pony tail which means I will have to fix it everyday :(  especially after being in the water... my hair will not be very cute left down to air dry! That's the only thing holding me back is not being able to put it up and run out the door! Who knows... I usually change my mind once I'm at the salon!! ;)

You sound like my wifeLOL  those were her arguments, however, you dont have to do anything but run out the door.  I read somewhere that when you get a new cut, dont style it the same way you did your old cut.  My wife did this for years, she would get a great cut, but then put it in a ponytail.  I told her that that was like buying a vet and putting a cover on it.

 
She finally understood when she got her hair cut short enough that she could not put it in a ponytail!  Now, she wants it shorter b/c its easier.
 
Just my thought for what they are worth, but it sounds like you are where my wife was about 2 years ago with her hair.
 
Have Fun, dont get burned!

I do agree that having it short is easier.. I find it takes me like 10 minutes longer to blowdry and straighten with it a little longer now.
 
Yes, I'm going through the stages of getting it shorter and shorter. Me & your wife have a the same hair type too it seems.. fine & sorta thin with a little body..
 
I found some pictures of Gina for you:
 
 
 
The results show comes on tonight on FOX at 9e/8c so watch it for her hair!!!

Thanks for the picks, I will not be able to watch the show, I have got about 30 tax returns sitting on my floor to doDead
I will call my wife and tell her to watch it for me, maybe she will see and like the hair cut.
 
Thanks again, and when you do take the plunge, you will most likely think "i should have done it earlier", at least my wife did!
 
Thanks againBig%20smile

Taking a closer look, my wifes hair is about 2 inches shorter than Gina's new haircut.  Her hair was about that length before this recent cut.
 
Thanks again.

Don't let anyone force you into making your decision for you. You have a cute face and bone structure, you could pull off anything!!! Do what you want to do. It is always fun to try something different but you have to be comfortable with whatever you do. It's your hair!

I don't feel forced by anyone... :)   I respect their comments & suggestions! Sometimes I need the extra motivation when I'm scared to do something.
 
Conrad, I got my undergrad degree last May and I'm there now getting my master's. I'm 22 so I may be a little younger than you. I love Freds & Chimes! (not familiar with the other places you mentioned)
 
I used to do taxes for a small CPA firm on Jefferson Hwy. So small that the guy used his house as his office too! Good experience, but not my thing. I'm a state auditor now so it's much more relaxing & stress-free.

You are a good 15 yrs older than me!  Were you in a Soriety at LSU?  My mother was the rush advisor over there for 30+ years. 
The other places are tons of fun, however the happy note was demolished about 6 years ago, it was a terrible day.  The bengal was down the road from chimes, near the police precint (i visited there many times also..oops),  TA's was just down from Chimes on the Right, attached to the same building.  That was the local spot for the high schoolers (back with the drinking age was 18 on the books, or 14 if you had the gumption to walk into the bar and order a drink.)  I was 6'2 in high school and had no problem convincing the bartender to serve it up!
 
Anyway, if you get the nerve up to "just do it" next friday, i bet you wont be disappointed!
 
good luck, and have fun on spring break

Here's a great site for inverted bobs.  I haven't figured out how to capture the pictures though.

Good Luck LemonLime, if you need to have your nerves calmed, have a c*cktail before you go(mamosa or bloody mary in the morning or margarita in the afternoon, or a good ol single malt scotch in the pm - when ever your appt is)Wink!  We used to do that before Strategy presentations in school, Hey, it must work, I was always relaxed and got an A!Clap
 
Anyway, here is your official shot of encouragement, I would always do this for my wife before she would go get her hair cut for the past few months.
 
Ahem....."It will look great, you will love it!  You have it cut short now, and you are wondering if you should get it shorter.  The only way to know is to do it, take that leap (kinda like bungi jumping - scarry at first, but enjoy the ride and the trill), dont be scarred of the unknown.  Its only hair, try it different, if you dont like it, or its not what you expected, decide if its the cut you dont like or the length.  Those are 2 different things.  But either way, dont not do it because you fear what other say, you do it b/c it will make YOU happy(ergo, the confidence).  You have to do it for you, all others aside."
 
And so ends my encouragement speal.......
Good luck, keep us posted (bad pun, sorry)
