How long is too long

I go too long without having my hair trimmed. It's supposed to be every 8 to 10 weeks, I think. I, however, go between 3-4 months!! I guess because I only use dark, demi-permanent dye and always let it air dry...somehow I think I am exempt from this rule. As a result, as soon as I decide I desperately need a trim and cleaner layers, I freak out and become obsessed with how long my hair has gotten and how some of it needs to go! This Friday, I'm making it happen. At least an inch and a half, and more shattered layers...

Here is the current length:

I have a crazy amount of layers in my hair and they seem to do fine without too much sticky product. If I had shorter hair, though, I would be all over this Sally Hershberger spray that has gathered quite a bit of press. She is known for cutting Meg Ryan's shag back in the 90's. I remember trying to
achieve that look, oblivious to the now-obvious fact that I don't have the same type of hair as hers. Therefore, sans flat iron, mine was a large mushroom head.

Anyways, the spray is at Walgreen's. It's a little pricey for drugstore product, $12. But whatever it takes to get that look, probably worth it.

actually, you can use the shagg spray on any length hair, it works just as well on long hair as on short hair. i have long, layered hair and its the only thing i use - its amazing. spray it all over then blast with a blowdryer for 20 seconds and you're good to go!

Thanks for the tip! Now I really want to try long as it's not waxy or sticky.
