(Temporary namechange so as not to out myself in RL)

Stuck in that eternal cycle of growing my hair, deciding I don't like it, cutting it, then changing my mind and having to wait an age for it to grow again. V long now but I think it's starting to make me look a big haggard (and I vaguely remember stern warnings from my mother about not growing hair long beyond a 'certain' age, just not sure now what that age is, whether I've hit it confused and whether that is in fact outdated nonsense).

Anyway, tempted to get bob of some description but then it might all start again. I've done that horrible thing where you turn the iphone on yourself, and taken the 'hair dilemma' pic that is now posted on my profile. It's tied back because that is how I almost always have it. Can the mumsnet S&B ladies give me some honest opinions?

Pros of long hair for me:
- simple to maintain: wash, brush, tie back
- It stays out of my face when tied back
- shorter styles seem to need more maintenance, blow-drys etc, which i'm rubbish at and having it long means it can be put up in interesting ways, not that i really do that

Cons:
- it never feels quite 'me' having long hair, especially when it's down (feel a bit like a man in drag)
- i've got quite pointy features, particularly as I'm ageing, and I think maybe long hair accentuates that and makes me look haggard

Thanks v much folks

I have to say I love it long! Looks more casual and youthful on you, I think.

It looks good long.

Get a restyle, keep the length.
