Aww! You guys are all far too nice Although I do love the cut too! I'm not 100% sure on why they straightened it, something to do with not wanting to mess up the curly hair, so they straightened it to "see what they were working with" better... I have no idea, but I will NOT be wearing my hair straight any time soon

I'm really, really glad I just went for it. I do think it suits me a LOT better than the long hair, and hopefully I look a little older than 14 now

Thanks again all! You made me ...
