Anyone else but me sporting the "I am too tired, and don't have time to do my hair (or even get a hair cut!)" new mom look?  It seems like I never have time for those little things, even a hair cut.  The last hair cut I had was a year ago, and before that it was 4 years.. yikes!  So when was the last time you got a hair cut or took some time for anything like that?

i have extreemly thick hair. when people hear that, they are like well so do i blablabla. Then when they see it or feel it, they realize i mean extreemly thick hair!!! well i got it cut short then i went to get just a tiny bit more off and this was a different stylest. well long story short, she cut it 3 inchs top and an inch in the back and that was it. all my wounderful hair was gone, I had to wear a bandana for months until i could put it half up. ill say this, she had brand new sisors and when she was done cutting my hair, they were dull(how thick). Well i dont look good in a fro so i couldnt wear my hair out at all and even to this day i am bairly wearing it up and when i let it out i have a bush for a haircut. Right now im a sahm, so its not too bad, but i dont think ill ever get it cut shorter again

It have been 3 or more years since the last time I  cut my hair. Is very long now and I plan on letting it grow longer.

I go in phases. I let my hair get really long, then I get tired of it, and cut it all off. Last time I cut it all off was in June 2007 -- Two years before I had my baby (she's an only child at a whopping 5 months). And when I cut it that time, I didn't like it as much as all the other times I'd cut it. I just love my long hair too much. Maybe I'll be singing a different tune in another two years when I'm tired of it. The cycle usually takes four years for me to complete!

I do think it's been over a year since I even got a trim though, so maybe I'll get my bff to come over and do that for me. I just basically pull my hair back at home and wash it (!) and leave it down for the 3 days I go into the office.

I did it too!! I gave two! (pigtails, I have AOT of hair)

So, I just had my hair cut, but I only do it once a year on average.

I got my long hair cut short into a bob in March right before I found out I was pregnant.  When I started taking prenatal vitamins my hair really started to grow fast!  It usually gorws fast anyways and in order to keep a hairstyle I have to get it trimmed avery 3 weeks.  My hair was chin length in May and now it is below my shoulders.  I am waiting until my LO comes and I can get off these vitamins before I fork out another $70 to get it cut again.  I know that sounds like alot of money and there ARE cheaper places to go, but when I go to those places I end up scalped with no style at all.  I don't want a hairt cut, I want a hair style, so I go to a stylist.

 I got a hair cut within the last 3-6 months.. but only because my brothers ex g/f comes to my house and does it.  (she works at a salon) ... if I didn't have her. i would probably be like you.  its not on the top of my priority list.  but in August I did go with a girlfriend and get a pedicure. my very first (sad)  I loved it and would love another. but unfortunately I don't have time. Since to get one I have to travel 30-45mins away!
