I can't stop thinking about my hair.

Literally.  It is driving me nuts.  Too short to put up in a bun or ponytail, too bushy to tame.  I just walk around with my brunette bushy 'fro.  I feel like I'm too old for headbands and cutesy barrettes.  Most hair products make my scalp itch and then I end up with massive dandruff.  The bangs are long enough that they get in my eyes, but too short to pull back without a million pins,  And then they puff out of the pins anyway.

The worst part is, is that I have a major "hot-shot" meeting at work on Wednesday.  I will literally be "at work" all day.  Upper management will be there.  Power point slides with bad music will be shown.  Copious amounts of coffee will be inhaled.  I don't want to look unprofessional.  I can't show up at a meeting wearing a blazer, skirt, heels, and butterfly barrettes in my hair.  I don't know what to do!

So peeps, you can tell me what to do.  Should I:

a) Leave it alone.  No one will notice the unfortunate hair.  Make sure it's well conditioned and wear nice clothes, make-up and jewelry and people will think my hair is a choice, and not a mistake.

b) Get thee a trim now!  Even though I now have an illogical fear of scissors, it's the only way to make growing out hair look graceful and not like a trainwreck. 

I am personally leaning towards B.  I still like the idea of short hair, but I'm not sure how to take care of it.  I'm lost!

Yeah just mousse it up. I googled "short hair styles professional" and clicked on "images" and found a lot of cute looking short hairstyles. You might have some issues w/ the humidity there in Florida, but some mousse should help, I would think.
