Okay, followers, you get to make a decision for me. I've had my hair before Bootcamp, and it's either I leave as is it get it cut shorter (think long buzzcut). View the link if you will, and let me know.

I voted to leave it alone until I clicked on the link. I didn't think it could be that bad. It is. Sorry! Definitely go for the pixie look that someone below mentioned. You could totally pull it off! But at least get those sides trimmed up.

I was glad I cut my own hair before I inprocessed. I would recommend you take care of it to avoid their hack job.

You look great. Leave as is. If they think it should be shorter, they'll cut it. But it looks fine.

As long as it's above the collar in the back, leave it as is.

As the mom whose going to have my own daughter cutting it for the same reason in about 8 months do what seems comfortable and easy. I wonder what it lots like wet (sweaty) and stuck to you...it will grow back.

The issue is they would cut to short enough it can't be tied up, but long enough it gets in my eyes.

So I'm doing so before.

Yes it is a bad wow. A shocked wow I might say. I REALLY hope it looks better a few months from now.

Haha.
I think it looks awful. So I fully intend to chop it down more.
As CM said before, it like a partial mullet. It's awful.

I would just go really short. You've got great hair for a .. Pixie kinda look..that's what we use to call it. Very short around ears and nape of neck and leave it what it is on the top. That way when you get liberty some gel and go..cute

Kris- I don't think the cut is you. I think a buzz would be awesome.

GI Jane it. Would be way cuter than the semi-mullet look. (No offense, I know you don't like it either)

Lmao. CM, I have been looking for a way to describe how horrid it looks.

10/19/13 11:14 am

I wouldn't G.I. Jane it.. I would be afraid that they would pick on you more, you do not want the D I to single you out. Even though everybody has their "shit on" day I've heard.

Cowbell, it's the Navy, so the "DI"s there aren't as bad as army/marines.

And I'm already going in as a Nuke, and with my birthday falling in boot, I'll be getting heat anyway.

Kris, that's good had a nephew go through Parris Island 6 years ago, he met two girls who did the G.I. Jane no-hair cut. DI were hard on them.
Good luck you can do it. You've got the SOH Community behind you

Yeah even a pixie cut like Cowbell said a I've would be just. I'd say 2 in Mac like you said in the poll question

Like it... Advice would really depend upon your style of work and your desired outcome.

From what my military buddy's say, when going into boot camp you want them to be able to cut it, otherwise they don't like that. They feel it's a way for them to tear you down a little more before they build you back up.

It's a bit different being a female. It takes longer to cut our hair (since they just go to the collar) and if I go in how I had it, they'd cut it long enough it hung in my face but too short to put up to keep it out, thus, I'm cutting before.

Right, I was guessing that that would factor in. All my buddies are male, and none were in navy. Just giving my .02

When I went to boot camp (navy), you had to pay for and get your hair cut, regardless of how in or out of regs it was to begin with...

Military organizations don't like you getting ahead of yourself; word of advise. Just go along with the program at
Least until you're out of basic.

I'm in with this thread. Your current hair is fine and not radical - if you come in with the "long buzz", it will target you for "extra attention" that you really don't want...
