Husband insisting on short haircut

I am Amrita. I am married for a 4 years now and now suddenly out of the blue my husband is insisting on me getting a shorter haircut. Initially I was ready to give it a thought but when i asked my hubby for what he had in mind, he says he wants me to get a bob haircut!!
My hair is very long. 3 or 4 inches shorter than waist length. And bobcut will be too short for me. I never had such short haircut before. I dont know what to do. Kindly advice in the comments below.

    Hi amrita
    I am sanjay and I am a hairstylist,I think Amrita you should try short haircut, may be you look more gorgeous and beautiful in short bob.
    and secondly with in a year you will grow you hair back so nothing to worry for long hair.

    so by cutting your hair ur hubby will be satisfied and you will also get change from long boring hair.
    And one more advise dont throw your long hair away in dustbin, instead after getting haircut donate your hair for cancer patients.

      Thank you Sanjay for such a good suggestion.
      Donating hair would actually make sense. Although I must say that i have really long and silky hair and when i discussed this with my friends, they said they all loved my silky long hair and I should not cut it. I am known for my long hair. It is a part of my identity now. I am really confused.

    Hi Amrita , you should definitely try short hair atleast once in your lifetime. My girlfriend cut it from waist length to a pixie and she looked so cute. She eventually grew it out back in a year

      Ohh, so does that mean my hair will grow back to waist length in a year? I used to think it would take long time.
      But more importantly right now many people like my hair and they feel that i look gorgeous and my long hair is my asset. I am not sure how I will look in short hair.

    hi amrita,
    u should cut ur hair short. going short is nice for every women.
    plz donate ur hair for chemo patients…
    u can eventually cut ur hair and grt blessings from god b donaing ur hair to cancer patients

      Thanks balakumar for your suggestion. I agree on the part that donating hair to chemo patients is a really good thing. But even if i cut my hair short, still my husband expects me to get a bob. That too the one which is short in the back. I have not seen any of my friend getting such a drastic haircut. So i dont know from where this idea came to my husbands mind !!

    Honestly Amrita seeing comments I believe you have decided not to cut your hair. There are couple of websites and mobile app where you can upload your photos and check how you will look.

      Ramesh, infact i am thinking of cutting it and that is the reason i am worried. Else i would have just flatly told my hubby that i am not going to cut it. I want to make him happy and i think i will cut my hair. But i would definately like to get advice from people if it is a wise decision and if bob is going to make me look slutty or something like that. Honestly i feel i am going to look a bit too hot but on cheaper side with what my husband is suggesting!! Short at back and long in front bob. It seems my husband is quite excited about my bob. But only my husband is not going to see it. It will be viaible to everyone right. Lol 😉

    U should obey ur husband’s suggestion

    It will nt only give u a new look.. Bt will also give increments to ur relationship..
    And dnt think dt only long hair is ur identity

    Girls real beauty is in eyes and smile

    I suggest dt u should go for a bobcut!

    Change is a spice of life!

    Ur hair will eventually grow in 1-2 years to waist length..
    Dnt wry bobcut is really really amazing !

      Thanks dev for your suggestion. I agree it is going to add a lot of spice to our relationshiop. My husband is so excited. When i discussed with my husband he said that for so long he was afraid to tell me that he would like to see me in short hair. He said that not just that, he would also like to come with me to see me getting my haircut. He seems really excited at the fact that i am thinking of agreeing to his demands.

    My hubby loves bobs too. I was in your shoes last years, when I was asked all of a sudden to get a bob haircut like a girl on photo 3 from here – URL Blocked . To be honest, I obeyed and really liked the result.

    Instead of going to short Aline job at once. Convince your husband you will cut your hair gradually in months time so that you wont be sad and also people who are going to ask about your haircut will be reduced

  • November 24, 2015 at 6:20 pm

    How did you decide to cut your hair and what advice would you give to those considering their first short haircut?

    • November 24, 2015 at 6:26 pm

      Hi FeelPlanet,

      I think you can comment on my other post if it is related to that post. Dont mind just saying coz it will be easy for both of us to refer :-)

      To answer ur question, i was persuaded by my husband first and then many people here in the forum adviced me to go for it. Adviced is a small word. I would say forced me to cut it… ha ha ha….So i went ahead.
      For those who want to cut it short i would advice – go for it :-)
