So, the "after" do...

Weeellll, as expected, I look nicer and more feminine with long hair, and this is kinda ridiculously short. But I wanted them to donate the long locks to the cancer patients, and to do so they needed at least 10 inches, so I boldly told the hairdresser to go as high up as the ears. And, honestly, I don't mind looking like a 15-year-old boy for the time being, since it's MUCH easier to deal with. And in the next few months, as it grows, it will be fun to play with other styles.

Still, I had forgotten how unruly my hair is. ("You can't style it; you can only hope to contain it!" By the way, what is that quote, originally? I can't remember.) This photo is after taming down with gel and water. In the morning, it looks like I did a short Kim Novak style, then took a motorcycle ride without a helmet, then fell off and slept in a ditch. And climbed out through a hedge backward.

It's entertaining, at least.

Well, you're always hot to me. ;)

Short hair is easier, though at that particular length it looks like it might be tricky (was for me, anyway). Mine's about three inches shorter than THAT, and I don't have to do squat to it. Of course, it will be interesting to try to figure out how to tamp it down as I grow it out to donate.

But look at it this way: less hair for grabby little fingers, right? ;)

Aye, the "less hair for grabby little fingers" consideration was key in this decision!

Seems no matter where you cut it to, there's always a "difficult" phase to grow through. But hey, it's all a fun challenge. :)
