"As a result, I mostly wear stuff that goes with the hair. It's yet another way my hair rules my life."

LOL Spacegirl, this is me!!

I actually like both but I do think straight hair around my face looks the best, so even when I wear it curly (99% of the time) I straighten the bangs and front sections.

Sadly, my bf does not like curly hair and prefers me to wear it straight. He doesn't even like beautiful curly hair on other women, he seems to have a real antipathy to it. The other day we were watching Julia Louis-Dreyfuss and frankly I think she looks awful with her newly straight hair. I was saying how much better she looked with her big gorgeous curls on Seinfeld and he said "Oh no she looks much better now!" (She doesn't, she looks plain and washed out IMO.)

He's a curl hater! Yuck. Not that I listen, I've told him that constant straightening fries your hair and I refuse to do it. However I will wear my straight wigs on occasion when we go out.

straight hair looks better on me...I wish it was the other way around but it's just not...

No, but it's a nice change from the same old same old.

curly hair definitely suits my face better, so much so that it has been months since I've straightened. My face, at least in my opinion, looks very pudgy when I flatiron.

Unfortunately I think straight hair (or wavy) looks better on me. I generally don't really like how I look in pictures when my hair is curly and down. I think it's just too massive for my face. But it definitely has to do with the cut, right now I'm growing it out a little.

i straightened (ok, more like my friends straightened) my hair for the first time this year, and i freaked out. it looks so bad on me. thank god for the shower. actually, my hair looked better than normal after the shower.. probably because it absorbed the conditioner like whoa.

I wore my hair straight for 23 years because my ex preferred it neat.
