    Hey guys,





    These are a couple of images of my hair to give you guys an idea.

    It's been long for about 2 years now, and I'm really getting sick of it . It's big, it grows 'out' instead of 'down' and is just generally boring me

    I'm really stuck for ideas about what to do if i get it cut short/shorter :/
    i.e how short, what sort of style to have etc. i've looked at plenty of pictures and stuff but nothing seems to jump out at me... D;

    Any ideas? :]

    Looks like you have a pretty similar hair type to me, and I ended up getting the irons on it to see what it looked like long and straight. Kept it like that for like 3 years now. Pain in the arse to maintain but kinda cool, maybe worth a go if you can be bothered xD

    Something where you keep the curls on top but short at the side? Like this?

    No idea if it's your style but I do love it and it would be a shame to totally get rid of your curls :')

    EDIT: Tried to embed the picture but it made it huge so thought I'd just post the link

    I sure am! By then it'll be short enough/not too much of it to straighten, so if it looks terrible and I look like a gippo i can always do that ;D

    Sorry about my irrevevant post before, it was no help to the actual thread. I must say though that I actually think the style would suit you!! because if you look at that model, you are not THAT far off in looks..e.g-same face shape. I think you should go for it and its common to back out at the last minute but at the end of the day a change is always good..AND YOUR HAIR WILL GROW BACK.

    I must say, I think your hair looks great in the pics above and if you really need to do something about it then Post 7's pic is the way to go. Either ways, you'd still be cute.
