Stop or Grow?

(If you're a guy, you will be really bored reading this. You might just want to stop now.)

Sarah texted me one morning a few weeks ago and posed an excellent question: "How long is too long for our hair?"

I've been trying to figure out the answer ever since. I slowly and steadily started growing my hair out over four years ago. It seems like every time I get a haircut I end up being right back where I was the last time I had a haircut. Make sense?

I finally made it past one of personal hair milestones earlier this year but then cut it off myself and ended up back in length limbo land. How much longer do I let it grow? Or do I find a longish length and stick to it from this point forward? I'm sure you can all think of people you know who have long hair that just looks tired, limp, boring, and exactly the same every single day. I don't want to be that person.

I want to have perfect and bouncy hair like Blake Lively:

Or even (ghasp) Miley Cyrus

But how do they have time to make their long hair so perfectly pretty? The very last thing that I do every morning before I have to leave for work is fix my hair. I'm always running late. So guess what I end up not having time for? My hair. The only days that I have time to actually fix it is on the weekends, and most of the time it ends up in a pony tail because I'm working around the house.

My gut tells me that I should never let my hair get longer than about halfway down my back. But then I watch Kourtney & Kim Take New York and get really jealous of Kim Kardashian's waist length hair.

I have to keep telling myself that famous people wouldn't have such pretty hair if they ever had to do their own hair. I mean, they've surely got even less time to spend on their hair than I do.

So what's the answer to my question?

I need a daily stylist. And asap.

hahaha I'm with you on me needing a stylist. I'd settle for just a little good advice. And by the way, (although with hair, it usually doesn't matter what other people think:D ) the times I've seen you, I've thought your hair looked great!
