does straight hair suit your face?

Just curious, but when you straighten your hair do you find that your features look...weird? My hair looks nice straight but the look definitely does not suit my face. I've noticed this with naturally curly celebs too. Hm?

I'm the opposite. I feel like straight hair suits me so well. I feel like curly hair makes my face look less symmetrical or something. I also feel like curly hair doesn't work with all of my clothes if that makes any sense. But curly hair has recently become my full-time look so maybe I just need to get used to it.

and I went away hungry from the inhospitable board.

I'm with realistic on this one. I think my curls make my face/features look somehow more angular. My sensibilities tell me that curls should have a softening effect on the face but I just don't see it in myself. Think straight looks better on me.
Curls suit me the best. Straightening my hair just makes me look odd. I don't feel like myself either when my hair isn't curly.
Realistic, I know exactly what you mean about curly hair not working with certain clothes. I feel strange if I'm wearing something like khakis and a button down shirt and my hair is long and curly and messy. It doesn't seem to go. As a result, I mostly wear stuff that goes with the hair. It's yet another way my hair rules my life.

I do think I look good with both curly hair and straight hair though. The straight is more of a novelty for me since I only do it that way a couple of times each year during the cold winter months. I don't even bother trying to mess with nature in the summer.

Agh... unfortunately, I think straight hair suits my face very well, maybe even better than curly hair. Bah! But yes I definitly also feel like sometimes my curls don't go with my clothes, haha! It's weird, but very true.
I think straight hair on me makes me look younger. And weird but I look like I have more hair because it's all flat with no scalp showing through which I reallllllly like. But I dont do it that often (usually when I get my hair cut I will have the stylist do it) because I am sooo inept with the blow dryer/flat iron. It's actually very scary how bad I am with hair styling tools.

I think straight suits me as well as curly, but they're just completely different looks on me.

I honestly don't know if straight hair suits me or not, I just know that I don't like wearing my hair that way!

My hair looks best almost straight- straightened with a lot of body and some wave. I don't even bother in the summer, though.

And yeah, if I'm wearing more "conservative" clothing, I tend to put my hair up or straighten.
I've only had my hair truly straightened once and while I thought it looked nice....I just didn't look like me. I think my curly hair is part of my self image and the straight hair just looked odd to me. I also thought that I would have to change my wardrobe and improve my makeup skills if I wore my hair straight...it just seemed to cry out for a more sophisticated look than my usual natural look. On the other hand, I couldn't stop touching it because it felt so smooth and soft!

Yes, and curly.

I do think that straight hair is more flattering to my features, but it is such a pain to straighten my hair. Besides I like the wild look of my curls.

I think straight hair suits my style better. I dress pretty conservatively (and like it), and curly hair just doesn't look right. I can't wear my hair perfectly straight, though, because I need volume. Somehow I think my curls make me look older (not good on the verge of 41). Maybe if I were more comfortable in funkier clothes, the curls would work better.
This is weird, I was thinking about this today. I think I look pretty with straight hair, and really don't like my face with curls. So strange how hair can make your face look so different.

Shame, cos I'm not straightening my hair anymore, so I will have to try to like my look some day. Even when I think my hair looks fab, I don't think it works with my face, somehow!

But then again, too few to mention...
I wonder how much of this is media pressure. There is so much stuff out there that pushes straight hair to be perceived as "prettier". I like to look "professional", so I wonder if that influences my perception of my curls combined with my conservative clothes. I hate the media and the way they manipulate women's self esteem, yet I may be a pwn to them, too.

I look at the likes of Dina Meyer, SJP, and Julianna Margulies, and love their hair so much, but even if I can get mine to look like theirs, I still prefer my own features when framed by straight hair.

I really think I pulled off curly hair better when I was younger. That could be because I look better with bangs, and bangs and curls don't mix these days. Or it could be that now that my face has more texture (wrinkles) I need less texture elsewhere. Or my hair is just less manageable. Whatever. Straighter seems to work better for me right now.
