Oh, that's it. Now I must find a way to get a knitted Borat and Amy Winehouse. I must.

Hair... it depends on how fast it grows. Mine grows very fast, which is why I don't keep it short. At shoulder length I can maintain some semblance of order for longer periods of time... short short hair means I'd have to get it cut every 4 weeks or it would look funny.

I would say, go for shoulder length, then get it trimmed every 8-10 weeks to maintain the "shape" (I get mine cut every 8 weeks). I do some layers at the bottom of my hair because when it grows to one length (as I had it at milblogs) it's so thick it poofs at the ends.

You could go with a very simple "bob" that is the same length all around and is easy to take care of.

As for the knitting... all I can think is - someone took the trouble to knit Borat and Amy Winehouse dolls??? Someone with WAY too much time on their hands. LOL.

The last time I tried a new hairstyle was about 10 years ago. I ended up looking like a bad country singer. I'm with you, just grow it and chop it. Although I must echo the above and say a bob would be the way to go. Not to mention if you have a style you have to upkeep it can cost you. I don't think there's a salon in the Philly area where you can get away with spending $60 for a trim.

From someone who is forever on a quest to find the perfect haircut for her... maybe this is just the right time to find a good? new? hair style for you (not that there is anything wrong with the one you have). Don't you need a little distraction? ;)

Locks of Love takes 10-inch donations, so you don't have to cut too much off :)

I share the same haircut/style pattern. I just had a little over 10" cut off for my second donation in under two years (the last was around 17"). I only cut it this time because I thought I needed a "grown-up" look for a job interview. Otherwise, I would have kept the hair to stay warm over the winter :) Of course, my haircut was less than a month ago and I'm already so tired of styling it that I'm seriously considering just letting it grow again...

I loved your haircut you got when you were a junior in high school. I guess it was a bob, and it was so attractive on you. Wait until you get my age; I'm willing to try all sorts of styles because I know if I don't like it, it will grow out in no time! When you got your hair cut in France, that was cute too! Take pictures with you to show the girl/guy what you want.
