    For the past couple of years my hair has been some variation of this general shape:

    I've enjoyed it but I maybe want to try a longer style (I'm pretty certain short styles don't work on my head), so I'm currently growing my hair out. As you can see below, it doesn't sit well without being tamed once a month:

    So I need a cut soon. I want to decide on a style now, either one I can immediately go get done with it at it's current length or alternatively a long style I can prepare for (ie just get some weight taken out for now without shortening any important parts).

    It's easier said than done though, my hair is stupid; the second pic shows it a bit, it's slightly wavy most of the way through then suddenly curls up at the end. So I can't do any straight styles. Any opinions on what might look good with my weird hair would be much appreciated! Cheers

    Edit: whoops, sorry, didn't realise there's a forum dedicated entirely to threads like this...

    No no no, shorter is far better than longer. It already looks like a mess and also slightly Ron Weasley-ish.





    So yeah, trim it. It'll prevent the waviness happiness too and it'll be more controllable.

    You think? Well I'd definitely consider it, any styles that would suit me in particular?

    Don't much like the one below but you seem to like the fringe/length.

    Looks okay the way it is dude. The clean, tidy look (yet tidily messy), is a good style to have. I'd say keep it unless you're sure a change is needed.

    I think you should keep it how it is, but get some of the volume at the sides thinned out a bit so it's not as poofy/fluffy.

    Keep it as it is.... looks cool. Kind of like my hair actually (bar the colour).

    All I'd do is next time you go get it cut ask the hairdresser to take some weight off it, which will make it look less bulky.

    I love your hair i think it looks cool, and suits your face shape. Erm, but i don't think you should cut it short it looks nice how it is, maybe just a little bit shorter than what it is? Have you tried leaving your hair natural without styling it or anything? sometimes long hair looks good when its all a mess

    Wow, pretty much a unanimous response. Thanks everyone, I think I'll just have a bit of weight taken out and stick with the current style. I do really like it, I was just starting to wonder if it still suited me. But apparently it does, so sorted!

    Mate, I tried the whole long hair thing a few years ago. I promise you, it's guaranteed to end in disaster. Not many lads can pull it off. For every one person that looks good with long hair, there are ten who look like complete tits, and no offence intended but I'm going to suggest you'll end up in the latter category (in fact you may already be in it).
