I had one hair disaster... when I was about 13 I got my hair cut really short and the lady did an awful job of it... being less than well endowed at the time, I looked like a boy! for years after that I never let anyone come near my hair, ended up growing it about midway down my back... a few years ago I finally cut my hair short again, decided I didnt like it as I have a round face that doesnt take well to short hair, in my opinion. I've been keeping it a little longer than shoulder length since then. I'm scared to death to get my hair colored... which I dont think I really need since my hair has natural highlights anyway. I've always wanted to try being a redhead, but I'm so freaked out about having a botched color job that I wont do it! Maybe one of these days I'll grow some kahunas and try it out... especially since I'd really like to do pin curls and try some really cute shorter 1940's styles!
