Weigh In

I'm chopping off all my hair. I just can't take it anymore. All I do is tie it up. I have rather fine hair, but there are a ton and a half of them. So what do you think of these? Three other things to keep in mind: 1 - I hate my hair in my eyes. 2 - I don't want to look like a lesbian and 3 - I am willing to use product what not in my hair but not have a whole hair routine. One final thought... I have a round face. Please feel free to post your own links to something better. I never know. I'm such a waffler.

This one is cute. Looks simple. Hair in eyes is a downer, but may not be too bad. Or maybe can be adapted with the shorter bang.

I like this one too, but would it make me look old??

This is essentially a bob which may not work for me since it looks like it might hit on the fat part of my face.

I kind of like this, but maybe not. It may be longer than I want.

Well and there's always this option. (Kidding, I swear but it is featured on the page I got these styles from and I laugh a little bit every time I see it. Could not be more lesbionic if it tried).

i have super fine hair too, but it's also super straight and it takes a lot of product to get those spiky looks, which i don't like. so i think you need to consider a few things...

do you have any curl? none of these are gonna be curl friendly.

how much product are you willing to use? i hate having crunchy hair so these would be problematic for me.

also, for myself, i always like the messy tousled look in a picture but in real life, i can't stand the feeling, i always worry that it's TOO messy or that it's sticking up the wrong places and i end up having to go back to my hairdresser for a tidy up. so, how do you normally deal with that? does it ever bother you when you can "feel" you hairstyle?

now, all that said, i like the first one best.

too much? sorry. i have the same problem so i figured i might offer something you haven't thought of yet.

Ren, thanks for the insight! I hate having crunchy hair also, so I do use some product but not like a gallon. My hair doesn't really have curl, but it hasn't been that short since 1985 or 1986 so who really knows. The fine baby hairs at my neck curl a lot. My current hair is shoulder length and layered but I really feel like it is giving me a triangle head and I always tie it back because hate what I think it is doing. Also it is in my eyes and face a lot and that bugs me.

Don't cut your hair off! Or do, but go for the last look. :)

There are products you can use that will give you that look without making crunchy hair. Those haircuts are all pretty close. I like the one with the purple eye make-up. Just do it already. I'll ask my other girl in Seattle if she has a good salon recommendation. She is picky about stylists.

I have an appointment for Saturday at 10:30 already set up. :)

Short hair actually takes more work to look good compared to just pulling your hair back. In spite of that, I love short, short hair on women and may again make the change.

Hair wax will be your best friend and is not at all "crunchy".

The top pix, while cute, will take curling your hair in the back to make it do that. I like the third picture personally.
