Wow Jen looks great. I would let it go for awhile and see how it comes out. Thank you for the update.

Thank you Mike!!
 
Unfortunately, the mullet action is getting to me again, so I'll be getting it cut this week.  I'm not loving my hair right now and sometimes you just do whatcha-gotta-do to love it again!  After cutting this time I think it will behave from here out with minor trims.  I'll post a pic after I get it cut this week.
 
As always, I appreciate your kind words and support!

Jenn, whether you cut it off now, or trim little at a time, in the end you will have the same outcome. You have to do what makes you happy! Hug 
 
 
I can't wait to see your  hair cut. I know you will be happy when all your layers are gone!!

Thanks PAPER.... YOU ROCK!!!band
 
Getting the back cut off will get rid of a lot of layers that just don't work well.  BUT, after cutting them, I think I can let it grow and grow.... which I am looking forward to!

Final goal of 25"

Currently I am at about 17" but will probably loose about 2-3" with my haircut tomorrow.  I'm sooo excited about getting it evened up though!!!  I'll measure this weekend sometime.  Usually I wait until it's wet.  I tend to get a more accurate reading wet vs. dry. 

The great news about this cut is, it will be the last 'big' cut.  I'll be able to go a loooooong time before getting it trimmed (and even then it will be minimal) again.

Aww thanks!  You are very sweet to say!Heart
 
 
OK, so here are a couple of pics regarding the mullet and then the cut yesterday.  I feel sooo much better about how it looks; even if I *do* miss the length a little!  Hubby measured and said I only lost an inch, so not too bad!
 
***sorry about how BIG these files are... I never figured out how to make them smaller on this site***

Wow, Jenn, you sure did have alot of layers! Maybe now that you have some of the back cut off it won't look so bad growing out. Love the color and condition. It's going to look great longer!!!

Nice cut and looks great. Heck maybe you would want to go pass the 25" mark. I also agree with Paper the color looks great.

Well Jenn , your almost to your one year mark, and your doing very well on your progress! Don' let the curls fool you they are such painwhip.

Mullet-ville is such a pain i remember it took me about a year to comfortably leave there and move over to shoulder-bites ave.Wink

i follow your thread an the pictures are great little reminders how far you've come!

     Hey Jenn! I didn't think your hair looked mullety at all from your earlier back photos, but from the side I agree that there were too many lengths. My wife waited so long after her last pixie that she almost retreated back to the pixie. That was with MY blessing, moreover, it was looking so sloppy. But eventually she let me bob her above the shoulders, and the rest is history. Congrats on a good move! Big%20smile Bob

SUICIDES, I know you feel my pain with mullet-ville!!  I'm much happier trimming that off.  Thanks for popping in & for your compliments as well!
 
BOB, I wondered where you've been lately... shhhh.. were you hunting wabbits??? lol  Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment!  I felt the same way as your wife; if I didn't trim it up some, I was afraid I would just whack it all off again.Confused
 
Yesterday I used some 'bendy' curlers (long - foam curlers with a bendable wire inside the foam) in my hair while it was damp.  I left them in about 3 hrs and the curls were crazy tight when I took the curlers out!  However, being a straighty - they are gone today.  Of course, I didn't sleep in the overnight and I didn't use any styling products either.  Most likely the curls would have held longer if I had done those 2 things.  My hair is still pretty short though and I doubt I could sleep in the curlers w/o them slippng out during the night.  Maybe overnight will be an option in another few months.  I liked using them though b/c there wasn't any heat involved.  My goal, when it's longer, is to curl my hair overnight in hopes that I can keep that style for 2-3 days.  We'll see about that later.........

Hi Pburgh.. thanks for popping in on my journal!blush Currently trying to make it to shoulder length and probably a final length of about 25".     
 
   
 
Here's a pic w/curls.  I am TOTALLY digging those sponge curlers.  I wash every other night, put some mousse in - wet set the curlers and go to bed.  The next morning the curls are so kinky I have to stretch them out a little so they won't look like an afro...hehe.  This style lasts 2 days and no heat.  OH YEA, I'm lovin' it!!!
