Time for New Hair Style?

As Xyon noted, before I decided to grow out my hair, I had a pattern of cutting my hair very short, then grow out like a Chia Pet. I guess one time I got too lazy and went beyond the Chia Pet phase and now I have long hair.

For the past few months, I’ve been thinking about cutting my hair short again. Cari and Steve first gave me an interesting idea back during Christmas break as they mentioned a friend of theirs recently donated their long hair. Then earlier this year, both Shanna and Angel also donated their hair. I think my hair is long enough for donation (read somewhere that it should be at least 10″). Growing my hair long merely became an experiment at some point. It’s become more of a hassle recently. The hassle I can deal with, but I was curious what other people think. Should I keep my hair long or cut it short?

I was trying to look for pictures of me progressing from short hair to long hair, but it turns out when you’re the photographer, you don’t really have too many pictures of yourself (or at least I don’t). I also haven’t been taking as many pictures as I did when I was back in high school/college. I did come up with this set: Face Shots. I’m sad to say that most of these pictures were taken by Bernabe at Jan Lyk’s Halloween party.

Original pictures are also posted up at Random Toland Pictures.

I should probably get more side profile shots of me sporting my pony tail. Maybe I’ll do that later. So what do you guys think? Should I keep my long hair, switch back to short hair, or go for a completely new style?

What should I do with my hair?

Side note: While exercising on my elliptical the other day, I saw my shadow and thought… I could totally cosplay as Kenshin if I just died my hair red and bought myself a male hakama. Looking at this picture, it looks like I have a long way before I can have hair like that:

  1. What exactly is an asian popstar haircut? Someone else suggested going completely bald. I’m contemplating on that. My sister suggested a faux hawk, but for some reason everyone that has a faux hawk looks like a jerk to me.
