Do I Need A New ‘Do?!

I know Madonna is wearing a wig in this photo from the Met Gala, and I also know that my all-too-real hair won’t look this perfect, but I am ridiculously tempted to get my hair chopped like this. Maybe even while I’m on vacation!



Truth be told, I wouldn’t mind owning that jacket either — but maybe with skirt for me, no?!

    Do it!!!!! I think it would really suit you 🙂

  • Rachael says:

    I think it would look amazing on you, go for it!!!

  • Jenna says:

    DO IT!! You would rock it hardcore. And on vacation. Definitely. Vacations are about new experiences and renewal. Works for hair too.

  • Sallie says:

    Another vote for DO IT! Heck, your hair is practically like that now…just longer and no bangs. Go for it. It’s only hair!

  • Mom says:

    Mom votes “yes”. It isn’t that short your hair grows fast even if you change your mind. Plus,you are way more beautiful than Madonna and will look stunning.

  • Sandra says:

    Do what ever makes you happy…When I cut my hair it made me so very happy, but did not make my husband happy at all. So, I tried growing it back out for him and I was miserable. I cut it, now I am happy again…and he is happy that I’m not cranky any more 🙂 Moral:Personal happiness make everyone around you happy too!

  • PammieTaj says:

    I think the hair cut would look good on you, just keep in mind that the proportions of your face and Madonna’s are not the same – make adjustments in bang length accordingly. Overall, the look Madonna is sporting seems to pay homage to Betty Paige and bondage. Considering Paige’s eventual mental health issues, I’m never going to understand people emulating her and seeing her choices as things to celebrate. The jacket is easily knocked off with something from a thrift store belted and with some studs applied. The sub’s collar with a lock? Head to Petco and then the hardware store.

    Looks like Katy Perry’s hair.

  • Isla says:

    Vacation tattoo and hair cut…absolutely yes!

  • Sandy G. says:

    Do it, do it, do it!

  • Cobi says:

    She is copying you! You are gorgeous as is! My vote is don’t do it, copying Madonna went out in the 80’s.
    If you have already done it, you are gorgeous!

    Hi Melissa

    You should let me cut your hair. You can rock it. Where have you been? I’m at Shag salon now.

  • Wonnie says:

    I think you look way better than Madonna. I 2nd Coby: don’t copy. You’ll look like you’re wearing a Madonna wig…
