just looked at that old post (it's page 82,btw) and your hair is beautiful. i think it would look good at any length. the trouble with a faux bob is while it shows how that length looks on you, it does not show how your curls would be. there might be more curls framing your face, giving volume around your face. but the length has to work first.
when i think of faux bobs, i think of the womens' hair in downton abbey, which i love!! (i've not gotten to season 3 yet, but i am guessing some will have cut their hair. don't tell me!!) :-)
