Hair Chop???!!!

Hey ladies, so I’ve had butt length thin hair for most of my life and I’ve only had short hair when I was in fourth through sixth grade. And now that it’s my senior year I wanna shake it up a bit but I’m sooo nervous to cut it because of how long it’ll take for it to grow back out. Plus no long hair for prom or graduation or the rest of my senior photos☹️ what do you guys think? Just go for it and get some extensions when that time comes???
