...and will be gone on Friday.

Yes, the long hair is getting cut. I'm going rockstar.

However, I still can't find any pictures of cuts I like to show to my hairdresser. I'm thinking maybe an asymmetric bob. What I really want to look like is Kimbra, but that's not going to happen with my ultra-fine hair.

Spam me with PICS!!!

I so wish I could pull off short hair, but my hair is so thick. I love looking at hairstyles, so here you go, LOADS of pics:

Victoria Beckham is who I thought of first for a short bob

Paris Hilton seems like she has fine hair, so maybe this would work for you

Katie Holmes

I don't know if this is asymmetrical, but I think this type of bob is so cute on Jenny McCarthy

And a cute model

here is one that is not asymmetrical

Ginnifer Goodwin

some websites I was scouring for pictures said that anyone with fine hair should avoid shoulder length bobs, and they recommend an A Line bob with NO bangs, like this one

Great photos there! I think my face shape is probably closest to Ginnifer Goodwin's out of all of them. My face is at its widest at my cheekbones. The top of my forehead is quite narrow in comparison.

I kind of like the "Pob", but since Victoria Beckham's face shape is so different to mine, I'm not sure how it would work on me.

Cameron Diaz probably has a more round face than you, but I still think her short hairstyle would look good

I love Ginnifer Goodwin, I wish that hairstyle would look good on me! For some reason I still think Katie Holmes face seems similar to you, it is just hard to find a picture of her where she is face on and not looking down.

So I realised tonight that my hair is down to my tailbone. Holy moly.

Wow, you're so brave. I'm way too scared to cut my hair off!

Before and after shots!

Here's the photographic proof of how long my hair actually was, followed by the finished product. I took in a couple of photos and the stylist thought the Ginnifer Goodwin one was probably going to work the best with my hair, however, we made it a little longer at the front (so I can still pull it back for YellowKat) and it's asymmetrical as well. I can style it several different ways, too, which is going to be fun to try over the next few weeks.

That looks so cute on you! Your hair has a really nice texture to it and it looks like it will style really nicely all the time. I bet it feels nice too.

Wow, your head must feel so much lighter! The shorter length really suits you even though I did like your long hair too.
