The short and long of it

So, I've finally figured out how to get my curly hair to look decent and also the quickest/easiest way to straighten it. It's been great being able to alternate between the two.

Now to take it a step further...

I was looking at old pictures and started missing my pixie cut. Has anyone tried or seen a hairstyle that can be short (curly) and long (straight)? I was thinking like a bob or something when it's straight, which I can also tie back for a more "elegant" look.

or do I just want to have my cake and eat it too? :lol:


I'm open to any ideas no matter how weird or wacky

    I used to have so many layers that I could pin the underlayer of my hair up and it looked like I had a bob! It was kind of fun to have the option, but now I prefer to keep longer layers in my hair.

    That's the only thing that comes to mind though. Maybe others can help more?

    Thanks! I've decided to keep cutting it shorter and shorter till I get to a pixie cut. I'll try your pin-up bob when I get to about medium length.

    he he... can't wait to start playing around with hairstyles again. :blob5:
