Hair Today...

I've had the Mohawk for over 2 years now, and I'm wondering if it's time to change.

I originally got it as a gimmick for a party and ended up keeping it because I liked the way it looked. I had to keep it short because if I let it get any decent amount of length I had issues with it in the car (specifically hair would be pulled out because my head was rubbing against the roof of the car).

I haven't had the 'hawk itself cut since late last year (since that was the last time I saw my regular hairdresser back in Brisbane) and the sides haven't been trimmed since a week before the move (late April). As a result I'm looking very shaggy at the moment, shaggy enough that you can't even notice the 'hawk.

The question is, what do I do with my hair? I haven't found a hairdresser here yet (to be honest I haven't really looked all that hard. Someone who cuts my hair has to be someone I trust, and life hasn't really been stable enough since the move to find someone I can trust), so if I decide to get a new do I'm going to have to find a new hairdresser or barber.

Options are:
1) Shave it all off. That was the original intent when I got the mohawk in the first place, I just got a bit distracted. The good thing is that it's easy to manage, so wouldn't need to find a hairdresser that I trust. Any one would do really.
2) Continue with the mohawk as it was. Means I would have to find a trustworthy new hairdresser.
3) Leave and let it grow. I've never had long hair before, so I have no idea what I would look like with it.

My original plan was to continue with the mohawk, but extend it further down to my neck and possibly let the hawk itself grow longer. However, after chatting with towkarn he's said he thinks I look better with a full head of hair instead of the mohawk, so now I'm torn on what to do. (Yes, I'm easily influenced. How many of you didn't already know that?)

I have very fine hair, so it doesn't hold a style well without using copious amounts of product, something I prefer not to do (a lot of you will know why :) ). Short is easier to manage (in terms of the hair itself, and for keeping the dandruff under control (I have very dry skin on my scalp, so I can't avoid getting dandruff)), but long would be interesting to try. I don't know. Any thoughts?
