"Lob"bing it off?

My hair has been really long for a really long time.  I'm thinking about switching it up.  I've had long locks for about 10 years and while I love the long hair, I am getting closer to 40 and thought about giving myself a more "mature" look :)

I have a weird anxiety about cutting my hair and my appointment isn't until the 20th, but I'm super curious what you think.

My style of choice?  The "Lob!"  A long bob with a bit of a lift in the back.  I have a super long giraffe neck (as my brother Jason used to say when we were younger:)) and I thought this would be a flattering cut.

Whenever I see pics of myself all I see is hair. Gwyneth Paltrow has a long neck like I do.  I thought this was a flattering pic of her and similar to what I was thinking.
 Here is a similar pic of Jen Aniston with a similar cut.
I won't ever go super short again I know that, but this seems like a fresh cut and a compromise.  Plus if I hate it, all it will take is a little time and it'll be back to "normal."  There isn't any crazy layers to grow out or awkward phases. 

Be honest, what do you think?

I did the "lob" for a bit! I actually really loved it! It's a super convenient cut; long enough to put it up and get it out of your face but short enough so that it isn't too much of a hassle to mess with! I think it would be a great cut for you!

I could see you with that cut and I'm sure it would look just lovely on you :)

ps~ Forty Shmorty!! If you like it long, keep it long. Your maturity comes through in your personality and attitude regardless of your hair style.

I think it will look cute on you. I think it will look cute on you. I think it will look cute on you.
There. Enough said?

I agree with Alisa! If you like it long, keep it long. But I do think the lob look would look way cute on you. :)
