Bernice Bobs Her Hair? Taking a note from F. Scott...

As predicted, I have been dragging my feet about getting a haircut.

Blame my hectic work and social schedule. Blame my indecision. But the fact remains that my hair looks dull and needs a boost, especially with Reunions right around the corner.

So here's my latest dilemma: I think I want to BOB it.

My hair hasn't so much as graced the top of my shoulders since I was a child, so this would be a major change.

What do you, my dear readers, think?
  • Do I continue to grow my hair for a few months and then donate it to a charity like Locks of Love?
  • Do I keep it long for summer and then bob it in the Autumn in order to create a cute-with-turtlenecks style, a la AH? (It would certainly help if my neck was also 20 feet long..)

  • Should I altogether avoid a bob (since I will never be Audrey Hepburn)?
  • Here are some styles that piqued my interest in the last few weeks:

So, what do you think? Hair DO or hair DON'T? Summer style or Fall fashion?
I always love reading your comments.

I have had long hair all my life. Or at least, the last time my hair was above-shoulders was when I was a toddler, just like you.

But I was so sick of my long hair about 2 months ago that I took the plunge and bobbed it MYSELF! It actually turned out okay - but being that I cannot layer for my life, I went to a salon and they cleaned it up for me. They gave it a little bit of an edge, making it slightly longer in front than in back, a little like the Kirsten Dunst look pictured here. And of course they added in some layers to soften it.

And I LOVE it. And have gotten SO many compliments. And it's just easier and lighter than long hair for the summer! I say go for it. I think you'd look great with a chic bob.

this may sound really weird, but here goes. i think that you look like you could be suri cruise's mom (which is a compliment since she is the cutest thing alive!). suri is adorable with a bob. even though you are a grown up, i think you could totally rock the bob, like suri does! am i weird? yes. but at least i know it.
