I never decide right away whether I like how my hair is cut or not. Miss Whitney always does a FABULOUS job but I always have to take a few days and see whether or not I can recreate the same look with minimal effort. If I can, then huzzah. Success. If not, then I make plans to go back and have it altered to fit the aforementioned criteria :)
PS I only got a total of 3 inches of length removed (which is not very much considering how long it was), plus lots of layering and a SUBSTANTIAL amount of thinning throughout the back. When the hair was all swept up off the floor, it filled that little "sweeper bucket" thingie to the brim... twice...
