A few years back mine was really long too. It went past my shoulders in the back, and at the front it went almost to my chin, though I would always push it back or to the side.
I really liked the feeling of it, but for tennis and diving it was awful. Trying to wear a dive mask without getting any hair in it was a nightmare.
Last time I got it cut, I went pretty damn short with it. Too short, I think, but I actually got a lot of compliments on it. A few people told me it was a shame, since I guess I have really nice thick hair, but it definitely looks a lot more professional now. I guess I've got nice eyes too, so people say it's good to be able to see them instead of a wall of hair. I also had to wear a hairnet at work, which was kind of a pain in the ass.
