Love your hair now and also the pic you would like. I have long hair and it's also my security blanket! But I went to the hairdresser yesterday and got layers put in at the back and sides- I also have a fringe and an overall trim- I also got a semi permanent colour and highlights through. She blow dried it curly and it looks healthier, shinier and only little shorter. I get to keep the length but it's also like a new do!
