: I will always have long one length long hair. Lately I have considered trimming it shorter. It is almost to my belly button. I had it belt length at one time but found it too long for my tastes. I guest growing to terminal length is out for me.

Hi Darrin,

I completely understand. As for myself, ever since I made a horrible impulsive decision back in 2000 to suddenly go from waist length to short ("typical guy length"), for the past 20 years I've been very focussed on achieving maximum length -- which because of my age plus genetics, my terminal length has never grown much further than belt-length... and I've tried and tried and tried, believe me! No butt-length or knee-length looks like it will ever happen (sigh...)....

I'm ready for a slight change though:
One of my niece's has a close girl friend who's an excellent hair stylist, and I've talked to her about trimming 2 or 3 inches at the bottom of my terminal length. My preference is more of a V-shape though, rather than a blunt cut straight across.

Since normally I wear my hair in either a bun or a braid during the day (especially at work), my goal of having my hair slightly shorter is that it will look a little more "styled" when I wear it down... right now it's quite thin at the ends.

Please keep us posted!
