Let it grow, or cut it? w/ pics

New to CG since October. I am growing my bangs out. The question is, should I grow the length, too, or cut it (inverted bob, maybe?) My hair is baby fine, and it becomes see-through at this length. I need some layers for the illusion of volume. I'm just not sure if I should go short in the back or not. I am 35 years old and also an architect (so looking stylish is important but so is being low-maintenance.

The image of the blond is what I mean by inverted bob, but obviously the fine, wavy version of this...

With your hair being as fine as you describe I think it might be a good cut for you - to maximize volume. Plus I think its both Chic and Professional!

I'm guessing it would look more like this photo of Kiera. Do you think so? My bangs aren't that long, though, but maybe they will blend in better if I bring the rest closer to it?

I thought the 1st Pic had a long side swept bang?? I think it would look really nice WITH the bans myself

if you can get you hair to look like keira's i would definitely do it! do you ever straighten it? i had mine kind of like that in may (before CG) and this is what mine looked like... always with the sideswept bangs

Makemewavy,

Do you have a photo of the back of your haircut when you hair was that short? Just curious... All those books in salons don't have us fine-haired girls represented!
i'm not sure, but i'll look. i've switched computers since then but i'll check on my photobucket/myspace/etc

I think a shorter look would be great. Kinda like:

I would grow it you can do more with hair when its longer like tying it up in a nice bun but its up to you remember you have to wear it, noone else
I got fed up with my wavy, shoulder length hair about a year and a half ago and had it cut like the 'do Keira Knightley had in Atonement - bad, bad, bad idea.com.

A-ni-hi-lated my waves; ended up with mostly straight hair plus a weird bit on the right side that decided to stick out at the most unflattering angles and that even after using the iron on it reverted to it's unruly previous shape in a matter of about 30 minutes.
Totally bad idea for me to have short hair...I regretted it once I saw that the beautiful layers quickly turned into these flippy pieces that curled up at the ends and never fell into place. I didn't feel chic for longer than a day after cutting my hair short.

I tried to attach a pic, I'm new to these boards...

However, I am a 2c, and my hair is very thick, so maybe yours would conform better.
Shorter hair is easier to take care of and for fine hair, it is not as temperamental. However, I wouldn't count on that picture with the blond straight hair. Wavy hair will look very different, it will get curlier, not straighter when short. After awhile with short hair, I got bored with it and really wanted to go back to longer hair hoping I can find some way to maintain volume when it gets there. Mine is shoulder length now and I'm waiting for the layers to grow out.
it's pretty much the cut i have.


ahhh maybe not. I guess mine is a lot longer I've been growing, it was super short last summer.
