Cut or grow? Which style? Please vote! (update)

I'm at a bad point in my hair stages. I don't know if I should cut it shorter and shape it up, or grow it longer. I just need a little change, and a shape-up real bad!

So, if you could take a look at my Hair album and vote for the style you like best, either my own hair photos or the models I posted for styles.
This Album Just vote, then reply with the number of the photo in the album. Thank you! :D

I have an appointment Monday morning for a cut, so any quick replies would be appreciated. Of course, if you can actually POST with all the board problems we've been having. :roll:

    From a males perspective i love long curly hair. I would say grow it longer and maybe just get the ends trimmed. However, you gotta do what feels right for you. If you not happy with it longer then just shape it up and keep it the same length.

    Hope this helps

    Failing that........... go PINK!!!!! :P :P :P

    With your curly hair,fun personality,and cuteness in general, you could wear underpants on your head and still look good.

    Wow, your hair is beautiful. It looks really healthy and I like the shape. I say just get a little trim and let it keep growing.
  • HippieChicHippieChic Posts: 252Registered Users
    You should grow it. I think you could pull off either Melinda's hair or the model in#28. I like both of them alot!

    Thanks! :oops: Number 27 is my latest. It just really feels out of shape.

    I love Melina's #26 and the model's #28 too! But I'm afraid I'd get too triangular if I try #26. :? Rather, I do like it fuller on top like #28. :)

    Grow it!!!! (Like Melina's or pic in bra ad).
  • CurliLocksCurliLocks Posts: 10,571Registered Users
    One of my fave styles was #13, but I can't get anyone to copy it since I left my stylist in Germany. :( I loved it for a shorter cut, easy to take care of and it felt sassy! ;)

    Keep those votes coming! Thanks! :)

    i voted to just shape it up

    you can easily grow it longer, but in the meantime its nice for it too have a good shape that easy to grow..

    maybe talk to your stylist about your desire to grow it longer and wanting a cut now that keeps the length you have but wil look good now and grow out nicely..

    :)

    #26 for "other" #9 for your pics. Either would look good on you.

    #28 would be good to aim for. The lift gives a nice cheekbone enhancement

    S~

    Just get it shaped up & if YOU want, grow it longer! :D
  • EilonwyEilonwy Posts: 12,389Registered Users
    Your hair is so healthy and shiny! I think, though, that maybe it could use a trim. The shape looks slightly off--maybe you should grow the shorter layers a little longer, while trimming the bottom. Not really that noticeable or anything.

    Yes, it needs a good trim. But I was thinking I needed shorter layers again to fill out the top.

    In #28, do you think she has some undercutting? Maybe that's what I need to thin out the triangle. :?:

    Keep growing it :P
    Gorgeous!!!!
  • kimmyckimmyc Posts: 551Registered Users
    I say grow it a little bit. So shape it up then try to grow it for a while. I think you would look great with first the pic to the right of you style then grown into Melina's style. Then you could even grow it longer to the bra models style if you wanted.

    You can always cut it later if you decide you don't like it long! :)

    i can't believe i'm posting on the hair board. :evil:

    i picked #17 as my favorite style. i like the big fat curls and think it would be lovely if they were even longer. like this:

    Go to your hairdresser and get a trim, then try to grow it longer. I say this only because this is what I am doing as well.

    Is the model in picture #28 from the JC Penney flyers? I just cut her picture out yesterday to save it for my hair file.

    Wish me luck! I'm taking a bunch of pics with me and we'll have a little chat first. Probably just a shape up to start. :)

    Yep, that's her! I took that pic too. :)

    Well, it is a bit shorter but much better shaped now. I had some dry ends anyway, gotta grow out the dry New Mexico-parched ends. I actually took my CK and gel and let her style it too. She did a pretty good job, but I don't know if I'll wait until I style it myself to post pics. :) :P

    We talked about growing it out a little since it's shaped better now. We'll see... I can't go too long or I feel like Cousin It (munsters, dating myself here).

    Well, that's about what it looks like now! :D

    Welcome to the boards. I see you're new. :)

    Keep the votes coming, I'll be needing another cut/shapeup sooner than I realize. ;)
