Default What would you do if u had straight hair?

(If it was naturally straight)
I would cut it like this:

I have always loved short hair... but I could never cut it like that since I have curly hair. (I like my curls anyways..)
How would you wear your straight hair?

I would get a super cute cut, and love it at first and then realize it's super boring and want it curly again. haha

I would be a much happier person. I just can't accept the way I look with curly hair.

Aw. ^

I would probably think about mine a lot less, but that might become boring very quickly.

I think that if I had straight hair, I'd wish for curly.

I would spend time and energy trying to make it wavy .... Like I used to do when I chemically straightened my hair

People are never satisfied with what they have.. straight haired people always want curls, and curlies always want straight hair.. *sigh*

I am happy with what nature and my momma gave me though, so if I woke up with straight hair I'd probably be running to the doctor to find out what went wrong.

I just don't have the features for straight hair. It took me having it relaxed to realise that! I look back at pictures of me with straight hair and it just looks 'alien', and hangs like a pair of curtains, plus I feel it actually makes my face look fatter, not a good look, lol! Therefore if I was born with straight hair, I guess curling tongs would become my new best friend!

I'd cut it like Leonor Scherrer. I'm in love with her style and for me having that cut would be my only salvation.

I'd wear bangs to shorten my longish face which I can't do with curly hair. Also, I'd wear very modern versions of Sassoon type cuts - longer on one side than the other.

I wish I had straight hair - I've seen women with straight hair step out of the shower, towel dry, comb and go. 'Nuf said.

This ^^

I've had my hair curly for four days and I can't get it off my mind how ugly it looks despite what others say. But, I really want my hair to be healthy again.

If I had straight hair, I'd be one of the happiness girls alive. The things I do to my hair now to try and make it silky, I have no doubt I couldn't achieve that with naturally straight hair.

But, of course this would be if I was granted straight hair today and not born with it. If I was born with naturally straight, I'd be one of those people who say how they wished they had curly hair without knowing how frustrating it is.

Sorry for the negative response, I'm just angry that I'm the only one in my family with curly hair :X

You should be grateful for what you born with.. people would probably give anything for your curls, curly hair is waaay prettier than damaged straight hair.

What would you do if u had straight hair?-ljdfafda.jpg
I absolutely love short layers and bangs, but even if I had straight hair, I'm not sure if it would look good on me. But I do love that color!
A non-stick straight version that I would love is this http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_o8UQ2efK4w...ith-bangs5.png
Too bad my hair would never be that straight at the root.
