Sorry, I want to post pictures but for privacy reasons I'm sort of hesitant to.
I know, it's a dumb thing to worry about, sorry.

But here's the cut I got, I look pretty much exactly like this girl in the pic concerning face shape and size. The hair turned out exactly like this too, but I've left it wavy in the back. It's a really fun style - cute, but edgy, wild, but sophisticated. It can work whichever way you want.

Thanks for the encouragement by the way!
You were so right - screw the people that say not to do it. Do it for yourself, be confident, and the others will follow suit.
I've found that even those that told me it would be disastrous are now complimenting me so much.
