Hope the title makes sense, not whether I should have my hair cut short but whether I should do it myself.
I have had short hair cuts before and liked them. For the past 5 years I have been cutting my own hair (moved to a new country couldn't be bothered to find a decent hairdresser and started experimenting). I have changed the fringe, cut layers in and gone from long styles to short bobs. It's worked out well so far and I am itching to try a short style but really worried that there won't be enough hair for a hairdresser to save me if I make a mess of it.
The back is tough, I use two mirrors to see what I am doing but it's still a lot tougher than cutting someone else's hair.
I have very thick hair in a sort of layered bob at the moment and underneath it's cut very very short to try to keep it from puffing out too much. I could start with shaping that bit and if it was awful it would be hidden by the longer hair, if it was good I could cut the rest shorter.
