  • Got my hair cut pretty short with color. My boyfriend at the time was not so crazy about it, I don't think. It was a little passed my shoulders with auburn and blond highlights.

  • I used to have hair to my butt. I cut it off shoulder length, loved it --had it highlighted and loved it, had it turned red and loved it, then had it permed and loved it, then had it cut off super-short and loved it, then grew it out again and loved it...

    I've had it short for years now and I don't think I'll grow it out again... but who knows. I don't regret hair changes, at least partly because I have had real luck with talented stylists, but also because my hair grows really fast. One year I decided in February that I wanted my hair in a bun for Christmas... it was under 4" long at the time I decided that and more than 14" long by December.

  • Yes, I went from long hair to short hair and everyone loved it.  It took 10 years off me.

  • Last week I went from platinum to brown! I've been blonde all my life and wanted a change. I don't think my family really likes it but it's becuase I've had the same hair color my whole life and they're not used to the change. Last year I had fairly long hair and chopped it to a pixie cut. My family said they loved it and wanted me to keep the style but my hubby liked it better long.

  • I had long hair for most of my life. I decided to grow it as long as I could to donate it I think the stylist was able to get about 8 to 10 inches. I then got 2 different colors for highlights and had it straightened (neither done before, either). Everyone loved it and I didn't regret it a bit. The change was welcome and I liked short hair so much I had it cut shorter 2 more times. (I finally settled on shoulder-length after a while, though, because I can pull my hair into a ponytail.)

  • Yep I went all the way blonde lol, I have naturally dark hair. Wow what a change. Everyone was kinda shocked at first but they got used to it. Its just like anything else once you see it enough it looks normal. Lol

  • My hair was about 3 in from my butt, I got it cut to a bob cut, the front was to my chin the back was almost shaved. I donated my hair to locks of love, I loved the hair cut! I then dyed it from dark brown to blonde and pink highlights. Loved it. Since then i have let it grow long again. It is about mid back. I want it longer but I really loved my hair short. I also like that now i can just pull my hair up and I don't have to flatten my hair everyday.
