I think finer thinner hair tends to look better short, whether it's straight or curly. I know we obsess over long hair, but there is nothing beautiful or sexy about scraggly hair...always reminds me of those women on make over shows who have the ugliest split end ridden hair, but insist on keeping it long just because.

I'm glad you had the guts to do what you thought might be right. Either way it grows back!
