Pictures of Short Hair

I am thinking of cutting my hair super short (Eva Pigford short) for the spring/summer. I feel I need a change and am not liking my hair right now.

Anyway, I have been looking for pictures of short, sassy, and modern haircuts with someone with 3c or 4a or 3b hair. I am not having luck on my own and I know some of you curlies are really good at finding fashionable pictures.

So, can you help me out?

Also posted this on the main hair board.


Thanks

Here's a few to start you off.



Her name is Tamara Gregory.

Here's one of Nicole Murphy.

You know what's funny? I have had the urge recently to cut my hair really short. I don't know why since I love having a longer length. I don't think I'll follow through with it, but I may cut it shorter. Just not as extreme.
A wonderful mix of coils, curls, corkscrews, and kinks.

This is me with my short hair, dyed blonde, too. Not the best resolution but you can still kind of see it.

Thanks, shyygirl. You are the queen of finding great pictures!

I really like the shape of the Nicole Murphy picture. I know the cuts are similar but NM's hair is more face framing and that is what I want.

My friends think I am nuts to cut my hair since it is below the shoulder blade now. Meh, hair grows back.

I am thinking of having Yodit do it.

How short do you want your hair to be?


ETA: Sunnedelight, you look really pretty with short hair. I like your cut too.

I have also been thinking about cutting my hair really short, like BC length. I think short curly hair is very sophisticated and chic.

More of Nicole. She has had some gorgeous cuts! This is probably longer than what you are looking for, but I think these are so cute!

This one shows the front.


Same hair from the side.


I'm not sure how short I *may* go. I've been getting scissor happy lately. I cut about an inch or so off in the back since it grows so much faster than the rest of my hair. What's funny is no matter if I cut one inch or five, my hair tends to look exactly the same.

I've been thinking of going to Yodit too. Everyone seems to have such great results with her. And for about $100, I can't really complain. My hair can be a pain in the arse to deal with, so it would be nice letting someone else share my pain. I don't think my SO would be too happy if I got it cut shorter than shoulder length(stretched). He and his father(who has bsl length 3b curls) have issues with women cutting their hair. LOL! Not that that will influence whether I cut it shorter or not. I just wouldn't look forward to the sad puppy dog faces that I know he'll make. He'd get ovet it though. If I'm happy, he's happy.

Atlantisrising (like your new name ), how easy was it to care for your short hair do? Was it high maintenance at all.

I was also thinking of going lighter but I am afraid that I will get chemical damage.

Keep the pictures coming!

There is nothing like a short sassy little crop for the summer. Everytime I see a cute short cut I'm ready to chop again. I still haven't cancelled my appointment with my stylist next week....I'm so tempted even though I say I want to grow it out!

Perhaps you have hair that the longer it gets the more it corkscrews. My hair gets looser as it gets longer so wants it grows past the shoulders I see the length.

I HAVE to get some big hoop earrings if I go that short.

Well, I plan to get a trim first and once the weather warms up, then I will go short. It is too cold to go that short right now! I suppose that by next winter I will have enough length to keep me warm. LOL

I'm jealous!!! I loovvvvveedddd when my hair was 2 inches long, but my husband...not so much. I promised him I would grow it as long as it would grow when I did the big chop and I can't go back on that promise.

When my hair was that short I ended up just using Abba Nourishing and my fingers to style and products lasted a looooooong time

And my hair does shrink up/corkscrew more with more length. Kinda annoying because I have areas that don't corkscrew and just hang, while the rest shrivels up.

Anyway, whatever you decide, you must post pics!

Atlantisrising's cut is super cute on her. I can't see the images in Shyygirl's links but they might show later, that happens sometimes. Agreed that she is the Queen of finding great images

I am getting my hair trimmed this week! I will bring Yodit the pictures to get her opinion on short hair. I was told by previous stylists that I have the face for any type of hair length, so that is encouraging. So, I have been asking people IRL and all say that I will regret going short because it will be a shock to go from my current length (shoulder blade) to 3 or 4 inches of hair.

Also, I figured out how to used Getty Images so, if you think of people who have short hair and cannot find their pictures can you just post their names. I will see if their pictures are on Getty Images.

Potterville, I love your short hair pictures. Actually, your hair looks great at any length. I hope mine does, too.

And you know I will post pictures! I actually took some pictures because I had a fabulous hair day with Curlisto products but I could not get them to load on Fotki. I will try again later this week.

How about cutting a few inches at a time or more and then see how you feel about going short short.

I like Debbie Allen's cut, too. I like that she has a hint of bang that frames her face and it is not all pulled back.



I wonder if she had to brush down the curls to do this.

I am getting excited! I almost want to do it now but I will first get a trim and then decide later. I have never had my hair that short before. I have always had at least 4 or 5 inches. The only thing I am worried about is growing it long again. Headbands and accessories will probably turn into my best friend. LOL

It is so hard to find pictures of short curly hair and even harder to find pictures of curls similar to my texture. I guess most people love long curly hair. *shrug*

This is me with my short hair, dyed blonde, too. Not the best resolution but you can still kind of see it.

Not this short, but maybe above the shoulders. Ive been inspired ever since GabbyC's post about long hair.

Cehua, have you looked at Subbrock's fotki album? She has pics of her hair when it was shorter. Her hair was gorgeous(still is), and was very flattering.

Everyone here who has pics of their hair short ALL look good with short hair. I haven't seen anyone with short hair that wasn't flattering.
