A New Look For Me!

OK, I'm having mixed emotions right now. I got my hair cut off Saturday, I love it for the most part, but it's a little shorter than I really wanted. Hubby refused to speak to me Saturday but he got over that, now he'll talk to me but he won't look at me a lot. Needless to say he likes me with long hair. What do y'all think? I've gotten a lot of compliments on it & most people say I look younger. What woman doesn't love the hear that? Anyway, here's the before & after. Please forgive the mess behind me, I'm in my son's room.

crewsk,
your short hair is darling and you look like a teenager I like your hair either way. Which way is easiest for you? Do you feel different with short as opposed to long hair? How do your children think you look? Just remember, in the long run of things, YOU need to please YOU!!!

I love the new haircut and I definitely thinks it makes you look younger. It brightens up your face and make your eyes bigger and brighter. Hubby will get used to it, especially when he hears all the compliments you'll be getting about it. You look lovely!

Crewsk I'm in the same boat. But honestly I really do like your new look.
Like mine did your hubby will eventually get used to it then he might like
it better.

Thank you all! Kadesma, short is much easier for me, I just wash, dry, & brush it, when it was long, it took forever for me to dry it (even though I have very fine thin hair) & it tangled a lot. I feel more "grown up" with short hair too. Savannah keeps saying I look freaky & TC hasn't really said anything about it, he just keeps looking at me a grinning, I'll take that as a good thing!

i have to give u the young single guys opinion.

crewsk, u look stunning either way, you have a very pretty face!!

BUT!!!!!! there is NEVER a good excuse for a woman to cut her hair other than to save her life.

grow it back as quickly as possible...for your husbands (and every guy who surely oggles you) sake!!

short hair makes all women look like little boys....thats why TJ keeps smiling!! he thinks his mom has morphed into a big brother!! lol

Thanks Andy & mugsy! But mugsy, I'm having to laugh at what you said. We went to my parents to pick the kids up shortly after I had it cut. Mom asked dad if he liked it & he couldn't even say no, he just had to shake his head.

Crewsk - your haircut becomes you. Unfortunately men associate a drastic change in style with "my woman is getting older" I will have to agree with everything wasabi said! It REALLY opens up your face which is beautiful!!! Maybe you could compromise and let it come to almost your shoulders and see how it looks - with a bit of wispy bang to one side (it's the "thing" now . Men are so strange about stuff like this!!!!
