    Big hair cut change = nervous making. [photo heavy]

    Advertisements
    Soooo... I am thinking about cutting my hair really short. I've been thinking about it for YEARS, but I just need some confirmation that this won't be a terrible idea. Problem is I have sort of a round face and I'm not sure if it'd look good or make me look rounder?

    Evidence:




    My current hair cut is this (though mine has grown out), and I love it. If I chicken out of doing something more drastic I will be getting this haircut again.



    But I kind of want to try something more like this:



    Also, if you've had hair that short or shorter did you regret doing it? How long did it take to grow out/how was the growing out process? Thanks.

    Ive had mine short(ive had it shorter than this but cant find a good pic) I LOVED it but growing it out sucked(04)

    Growing out- 05 and 07


    Now-12


    If it werent super long now I would totally cut it short again. I think I have kinda a round face and I thought it worked well for me. I think it took a good year to be at a decent length after being short.

    I've had that exact haircut before! Literally I brought that picture to the salon with me!

    I don't regret cutting my hair short because I really had no choice, I had long hair and I got SUCH a screwed up haircut that the only way to salvage it was to go for a pixie. I kept it short like that for about two years before growing it out. My hair grows *fast* and it still took an eternity, so I won't be going super short again for as long as I can pull off longer hair. Also, it grows into a mullet.

    I'm sure you could pull it off, but personally I really like your hair the way it is now so I wouldn't cut it.

    That's good to know.

    Sounds like growing it out will be a major pain, which I kind of figured... Growing out hair is always a pain in the ass.

    It does grow into a mullet!! I just kept getting the back cut until the front was a decent length so it never looked awful.

    I really love your hair in the first picture! Also you resemble Maggie from The Walking Dead.
