Big hair cut before wedding

I just need to vent about my hair.


So a little back story about me is I'm a stay at home mom to 3 littles. I never do anything with my hair, just put it up in a bun. It would take so long to brush it and it was very tangled all the time so I decided it would be better manageable to just cut it. I have been growing it out for my wedding which was supposed to be this past April. It got pushed back to May next year. My plan was to cut it shoulder length after the wedding but when it got pushed back I was like wow this is a lot of hair I'm just going to cut a little off in the meantime. Do a little something for myself etc.
Aaaand now I regret it. The picture outside is of the 1st haircut, the lady butchered it. Uneven and all around a bad cut. So I go somewhere else to have it fixed and she evened it out for me etc. Well now I just feel completely devastated and I miss my long hair. I shouldn't have done that because now its probably not going to grow very much by May.
Hopefully by May I get a little length back. I feel very different with this short, heavy hair. Feeling bummed about all the pretty lengthy bridal hairstyles I could've gotten. Thanks for letting me rant.

    Omg you’re fine! I thought you were going to have a bowl cut the way you described it! You have beautiful, thick hair. It looks great already but you have almost a year to get more length - you’re fine! Take biotin supplements.

    I will look into the biotin supplements. I tend to freak out about the stupidest things so thank you for putting some sense into me!

    You definitely still have enough length to do a lot with it now without all of the growth you'll get before May! I've got super long hair too, so I get that cutting that much off seems like a ton, but you'll still have a ton of options you can choose from with that length.

    You still have a ton of hair to work with. I was envisioning super short like a bob or pixi cut. I agree with PP about biotin. Take by itself or with prenatals. I take take both and feel like my hair has gotten a bit thicker.

    I totally understand, but your hair looks beautiful and is still plenty long to do an amazing updo! I actually think it will be easier. My hairdresser told me that having too much hair makes an updo more difficult, so I think this is a perfect length! Of course let yourself be bummed and feel how you feel, but try not to stress too hard!

    Your hair is long and beautiful. I heard Mane n Tail shampoo is good for growing it out. If it still bothers you, you can get clip on extensions or a halo. You don't need them though!

    I know to go from your lower back to shoulder blades is such a huge difference, but do not worry! Your hair is still so long, looks thick, and beautiful that you have plenty to probably do any kind of style that you would want.

    Hi there!

    Your hair is still so long and beautiful! But trust me. I totally get it.. Im obsessed over my long hair... Im the one who goes to my hair dresser only wanting a trim Smiley smile . Ive always dreamt of having a long gorgeous hairstyle for my wedding. Back in March I went to my hair dresser to start getting my hair healthier for my wedding this coming October. My hair dresser took off about 2 1/2 inches (my hair needed it desperately) To be honest you couldn't even tell she took the length off which made me super happy! It just looked so much healthier.

    A few weeks later I was looking into a natural product that will keep my hair healthy and continue to let it grow. I came across Bondi Boost.. YOU MUST TRY THIS product line! I cannot stress this enough especially if you want you length back. I've been using it for about three months and my hair is the longest and healthiest its ever been! It has grow SO FAST within those three months.

    I use Bondi Boost shampoo, conditioner (hair mask once a week) intensive growth spray (every other day) and rapid repair leave in product.

    By the time May comes around your hair will be even longer before your hair cut.

    Goodluck to you!

    I’m sure that has got to be such a weird feeling having totally different hair then you’re used to, but looks like you still have a ton of length to work with! You could always get clip in extensions. I use them all the time and they look natural. Another option is doing an updo or half up half down hairstyle for your wedding. If it puts you at ease any, I absolutely love your new chop and think it will look totally gorgeous on your big day!

    Like everyone else I was expecting something super short. But I totally get it! I have long hair too and even an inch lost seems like a lot. Your hair is gorgeous and thick so you’ll totally be fine, especially with how much time you have. Mainly just wanted to say how jealous I am of how thick your hair is 😂

    Haha, like the others, I totally get it - but your hair is plenty long! My sister recently cut her hair to just touching her shoulders, so much shorter and much finer than your hair, and my hairdresser said she'll have no problems putting it up somehow.

    Love the new cut! You still have soo many options with the length that it is. I know it will turn out beautifully.


    I definitely feel you on the indecision to get a cut. My hair is past my waist, but I’m having anxiety about cutting it and my wedding isn’t until March.

    OMG your hair is so long and thick! I thought you had chopped it to your chin or something!

    You can do PLENTY with the hair you have, and it will also grow out quite a bit by next May. On average, most people's hair grows about 1/2 inch a month so that's another 5 inches or so. Your hair looks so healthy I wouldn't be surprised if it grew faster.

    I do agree that the "in between" chop was so badly done. What a disservice to your gorgeous hair. Glad you were able to get it cleaned up.

    Yeah like others mentioned I was expecting much worse from your description.. with your time frame it will be waist length in no time.. My hair started falling out so I cut my long hair into a bob myself during covid. Did a fantastic job! Seriously it was a precision cut everyone commented how flawles it was. I Cut it 3 times then when restrictions were lifted decided ro get it cut and she butchered it. My hair was already barely at my shoulders its now barely at my ears and it's so bad i can't risk having someone else touch it yet....needs to grow out more. I'm taking biotin, and praying!

    I had long hair like yours just not as thick. I totally understand where you are coming from feeling like you miss your long hair but your hair is STILL LONG! lol I just got mine cut a couple weeks ago and it feels so short but all reality it is so long still. Give it few weeks and won’t even realize the difference. You’ll probably want to trim it again before next May so it’ll be so much healthier for your wedding day!

    Oh my gosh! When reading your post I thought your hair was going to be suuuper short and not salvageable! But then I saw the pictures and OMG you have the perfect length hair!!! You'll 1000% be fine and be able to have a beautiful hairstyle for your May wedding!

    & I agree with previous post, take biotin supplements - they truly work! I stack biotin with a prenatal and my hair/nails grow out sooo fast!
