I have very long hair that is deep red. I have always had long hair except for a couple times it was cut, for the military I shortened it once and when I was a kid. Both of those times it bothered me to tears, but some of that was also because it was just a boring cut and didn't look that great in my opinion. I don't like boring hair hence my blood red color and those were boring cuts. My husband has a favorite haircut on women, long in the front and short in the back, He loves that style. The pics I seen of it the women had it very shor tin the back and I could never d othat. I have been thinking about getting a new haircut to boost my own confidence and to surprise him because we've been married for years and he knows how I am about my long hair so it would be a real shocker to him and I think he would find it really hot. So I found a picture of a woman with long in the front, shor tin the back...except its not super short in the back, its more like medium length in the back with very long in the front and my hair is long enough that I could have medium length in the back with long in the front and it still look sorta "omg" not just a safe cut, plus I realized if I curled the back it would look even more drastic on some days so I could really change my whole look up. I am a little scared because I am one of those women that seems to never change her hairstyle and if I don't like it I will probably end up in tears looking in the mirror (petty I know) Yes this is partly because my husband loves this style and I do want to be as hot as possible for him, this is also because I feel like something new would be healthy for my confidence so its not JUST for him, but he has a large chunk of the reasoning. Do you think I should get over these weird hair fears and just go for it and change things up or stay safe and leave it as is?Answer Question

If you go with the cut described, you really should get a color/highlights/lowlights at the same time, the color is what really makes a style pop. You have a more dramatic look with your tats etc. I would keep the hair simple and choose a cut that would showcase my best facial feature. Also I encourage you if you are considering such a change that you have not been happy with in the past that you choose a stylist that shares the look you are going for. Good Luck - sounds very exciting!
