is there anyone else here who likes short hair?

I want to talk about short hair with people but everyone only talks about growing it out. I want to keep mine short. i want style options for short hair that aren't "Cover it till its longer"
3C/4A mix (Seriously it's all over the place)
Hair is kinda fine and kinda thick.
Super short, I'd like definition but styling products don't like me

    I love short hair!! I'm only growing mine to donate it, then I plan to chop it off again. I'm not sure if I'll be able to make it, I can't stand it and I don't look good with it. Trying to be bigger than myself.

    When I had a pixie, I used headbands a lot. I love hair that's just above chin length, it's so fun! I'm no good with hairstyles though - I'm looking for some myself. I sift through pinterest when I'm bored.

    I think I'm going to have to make a pintrest. Google just isn't cutting it XD either all the styles are for strait/loosely curled hair or it's just too long.

    Long hair is such a hassle and I never do anything with it. I like the way I look with short hair much better. even though I still can't style it yet XD I've never had it this short before and I've had long hair for a long time. I've forgotten how to work with the short stuff XD

    That's half the fun! ;) I feel you on not doing anything with the long hair, I don't do anything with mine either. It's just.. blah. Short hair has so much more character. I can't wait to cut mine.

    I don't have short hair but I've had it before and I like it. It looks good on me with my cheekbones and eyes. Some of my relatives keep theirs short and it's lovely, sassy, sophisticated. What I don't like is really long hair ie past bsl. Too much hassle for me.

    I am at heart a short haired girl. I tried to deny it for awhile but I just don't look good with long hair and it's too much work for me.
    Every once in awhile I'll get the long hair bug but I never make it very far before I'm chopping it off again. Once it starts to get long it will look stringy and lose its bounce. Right now my hair is between my chin and shoulders and I'm really enjoying it. It just flatters my face better. Most people agree and the people who don't are poops.
    My ID photo is from ten years ago, I'm 18 and my hair is long and straight. Every once in awhile someone will comment that they like my hair in the photo and I'll say, "well I hated it. Bugger off." Ok I've never said bugger off before but I'm going to start saying it.

    If I didn't have big dumbo ears and a cold neck, I'd wear a pixie cut.
  • sixelamysixelamy Posts: 4,157Registered Users Curl Novice
    Gosh, I miss my pixie. If it wasn't so awkward and stupid to grow it out, I'd do it again. Well.. that and if little boys didn't think I was a boy. :/

    ultracurlz - if that's your current hair in your avatar, I say you are rockin' it! It totally fits you and I have a bit of secret jealousy and wish I looked that good with short hair.

    I think short hair looks good on people with cute round faces and nice cheek bones. I have a fat square head that is flat in the back, so I quickly learned it is not flattering on me. :sleepy6:

    I think Halle Berry, Lupita Nyong'o, Ginnifer Goodwin, etc. just look *good* with short hair.

    I used to hate short hair but I teallu like longish wispy pixies and bobs. However I have the type of hsir thst looks better long and is easier to handle when it's past shoulder length. I really like Portia de Ross's hair. She wears it straight though I believe she's a wavy.

    Speaking of Halle, I think anyting beyond a bob looks not so good on her. I think people with longer face or pointy chin that long hair drags them down. Then some people look good in both. I like Jennifer Lawrence's cut is fab imo but some guys I work with hated it. They are like why do women cut their hair off. whatev

    I found that Halle looked more striking with short hair after her daughter. I like her with short hair but I also loved when she had extremely long 3a hair. I think it softened her face. I also like Ginnifer's pixie cut but I don't think it's a good look on her but I have never seen her with long hair. The lady from 12 years a slave has the right face shape and a striking enough face to look good with hair that short. JLau looks good with short hair but she looks a little better with longer hair.

    I like this length on Ginnerfer. The other photos of shorter make her ears stick way out. As someone mentioned short hair and big ears not the best mix.

    I like short hair. In fact, I've had thoughts about getting hair cut to about half of it's current length.....maybe even shorter than that.

    But what's keeping me from the big chop, is the fact that I've yet to have reach a point of satisfaction with the length my hair has grown to. It's strange really. I can recall a time that I really wanted the length that I have now....But now that I've got it, I want it all to grow even longer.

    Perhaps I'll never cut my hair off after all..:dontknow:
