New here, some advice would be appreciated about hair length :)
4 Attachment(s)

As I said, I'm a newbie here. I've been asking my friends for a week or so what they thought about cutting my hair, and I mean like chin or mid-neck length cut. Some people are very for the idea, others are much less encouraging. But then I realized that I have been asking a bunch of people who don't have curly hair! So here I am, asking a bunch of people who also have curly hair like me.

Basically, I'm really tired of the length of my hair. I've always had it longer, and I really always do get a lot of compliments on it. But it's very temperamental, it gets rather flat and the curls lose their spring and bounce. Usually, as far as daily routines go, if I want it to actually look good I need to diffuse it at this time of year, but during the summer I can let it air-dry. I want to cut it to about mid-neck or chin length, I've attached some pictures. The two with short hair are ones that I (ideally) would like my hair to look like, the other two are ones of me, the one that looks "shorter" is because my hair is pulled back in a braid, the other one my hair is still sorta wet but gives a better idea of my curl type.

Any sort of input would be greatly appreciated :D

My vote is that you go for it! I love the first pic & think that would look great on you (in fact, I just might steal that pic and take it to my own stylist, lol). If you're itching for a change, why not? Hair always grows back! :) If you decide to do it, please update with some pics!

I think it would look great! If you decide to cut it, just be aware of how much your hair curls up. My hair curls up 2 to 3 inches at least so I have to be careful how much I cut off.

Go for it. You will look hot! :thumbup:

I'm sorry, I think longer hair is more feminine and sexy. But as long as you feel good with it, do it then ;). You have beautifull eyes by the way.

So! I would up getting it cut - yay. When I first got it cut, I definitely cut it too short, but I have to say that I'm glad I did it because now I know 1) not to cut it too short and 2) no longer have this burning urge to "change up my hair-do"
The good things about it:
- simply not as much hair to deal with! which makes showering and styling easier
- my hair looks a LOT thicker than it really is
- it's easier to get more volume than it was with longer hair
The bad thing about it:
- I can't really put my hair in a long braid anymore, and it really doesn't look that great in a ponytail since it's more like a pom-pom is attached to the back of my head

Here's some pictures of what it looks like, and this is about a month after getting it cut.
For those of you considering cutting off your locks, I would say go for it, especially if you are having a hard time getting that volume you're looking for.

Very cute cut and very healthy-looking hair, beautiful!

Now I'm tempted to make an appointment with my hair dresser, hm... Thank you for the update!

Oh, gosh. I'm trying SO hard to grow my hair but posts like this make me really rethink the whole decision. That cut is SOOOO cute on you!!!
