Could I get away with a short short crop? DONE!
« on: 09 May 14 / 01:17 PM »
The bits of growing-back hair are sticking up and driving me mad. The hair that's growing back from post-op hair loss is a fuzzy mess that I hate. There is a though in my head of chopping it all off ito a pixie cut and growing it back from there.

Here is me in my chubby-faced glory.



I like what Valorie Curry has at the moment:

Oh Janine! It's YOUR hair that I really like too! Have been trying to remember who had a bright red crop that I like for ages - poor brain couldn't come up with the memory :( What do you reckon?

Pros: you have the same face shape as her (wider cheekbones, narrow chin) so could definitely rock that style.

Cons: it's a lot to chop, so would take a very long time to grow back if you're ultimately aiming for longer hair.  That may not be a problem for you, of course.

For me, I keep chopping mine then missing the floppy front bits to hide behind. So while I think shorter suits me (based on what people tell me) I keep pining for long hair.

So I guess I'm not being much help! Sorry! I'm terrible with deciding a style for mine. I'd love it long but people tell me it ages me cos it's so thin and doesn't hold body.

But if you can cope with it short / regrowth timescales I think go for it. A dramatic new cut is always energizing.

I think you would totally rock it! The extra height/fullness up top will be really flattering on you :) I think it would look awesome too, to leave the front side pieces a little bit longer to keep some 'length' around your face, it will help elongate your face more
Always remember to consider what your hair is going to feel like after processing it BEFORE you do it! Test strands, treatments/oils are important when it comes to hair, but the most important thing is patience!

I agree it looks great, plus I am sure you could still style it in many different ways (like the last pic you posted before your one), I am quite jealous and think you are super brave for getting the chop like that!

It looks brilliant, @TabithaBlue!  Not only do I love the cut on you, but the colour is so gorgeous, and your hair just looks so shiny and full of life.  Really good choice. x
Hair reminds you just how much "patience is a virtue"...

Oh yeah, so these two men walk into a bar: you think one of them would have ducked. ::)
