I pretty much have the same problem Sonny does. So many people rave about how pretty my hair is then in the next breath say that my face is so tiny and my hair overwhelmes me. I don't actually mind the volume, but my hair DOES seem to cover up half my face. I got layers cut into it for this very reason but the only difference now seems to be that my hair STILL covers my face and my layers don't blend well at all. Dang - but that top layer sure does curl! I did just begin what I hope is a CG routine, though, and maybe my problem will "go away" in a month or so.
Have had my hair short for almost a year now. No regrets! Still loving it!
