I have been thinking of this too.  I don’t have any photos for inspiration but I like the one you posted.  The only difference is that I think a sideswept bang is a lil cuter.  The blunt edges on me makes me look like I’m 9yrs old!  If you google “shoulder length haircuts for women” you’ll see Jessica Simpson with shorter hair.  I really like that look but it doesn’t look low maintenance enough for me.

I have a photo of my mom haircut (similar to the Selena Gomez pic you posted) but only have one, small picture of it here at work.  I’m growing it out now (again) so I don’t have any others I can show you right now.  Hopefully this one works:

Oh, and ignore my husband’s weird face.  πŸ™‚  We were caught by surprise, lol.

My haircut is actually pretty similar to this.  I know long bangs are trendy, but I’ve had bangs my entire life, and I think anything much past your eyebrows is annoying.  They get in your eyes and you can’t see, plus people can’t see your pretty eyes.  I keep mine at or just above my eyebrows, and at this length I can let them be straight down, or side sweep them.  Good luck deciding πŸ™‚

While I was in the first trimester and feeling awful I went to get my super long hair chopped to above my shoulders because I thought that it would get too hot in the summer & I wouldn’t want to deal with all that hair, etc. But I haaaate it πŸ™ It’s boring, shoulder-length, really generic looking. I wish I had cut about 6″ and done some major layers instead of cutting about 14″ off. 

If I were you I would think about it more and don’t make any rash decisions like I did! πŸ™‚

Personally I don’t think bangs are “easy to maintain” if they get longish they hang in your eyes – just something to consider

I would suggest talking to your (trusted) hairdresser.  I know if I came in and told mine that I wanted to cut in bangs (which are not easy to deal with) and chop off a good portion of it, she would first laugh at me and then have better suggestions.  Like other people have pointed out, losing a lot of length usually turns out to the person not liking it in the end.  Much easier to have someone else make a decision and guide you to what looks best for your face and what you really want.

@camrie: I agree that bangs can get in your eyes and need to be trimmed often! I had blunt cut bangs like this and they were very cute but I felt like I was blinking ALL.THE.TIME! I like the shoulder length cut though, maybe a few easy to style layers? Nothing too complex πŸ™‚

For me, shorter hair doesn’t equal easyness for styling and maintaining. On me, long hair is more of a blow dry and go since it generally will fall straight and smooth. When I have shoulder length hair it tends to be more frizzy and the ends go every which way. Also, hair too short can’t go up in a pony tale in a jiffy like long hair can! And like other Bee’s said…bangs take even longer! You HAVE to style them every single day.

I agree with HelloRaeven. Short hair is NOT easier! 

It is way more fussier. I had pretty long hair like and decided to do shoulder/chin length. All sorts of layers and what not. It LOOKED good, but I had to deal with it every morning. My hair is thicker and more wiry, so I HAD to flatiron it every morning and deal with it, otherwise it looks absolutely stupid. I also had bangs like that, they were ok, then grew them out to side bangs. They were ok too. But honestly, short hair does not fit into a pony tail if you are lazy, so you always have to style it!

My hair is now long again, past the bra strap and boobs, and it way easier for me. I don’t have to do anything to it if I don’t feel like it, I can just leave it and let the slight wave and natural volume do its thing. My bangs grew out and I let it just part in the middle, (My hair does not do side parts), and it looks so much better. I was aiming for victorias secret hair, they always have long wavy hair with a middle part. 

Anyways, don’t do anything rash and cut it all off at once!!!

I like the haircut itself but the bangs might not be as easy to handle as you are thinking.

I have a short bob that I’ve had in various lengths since my wedding over a year ago. Just got it cut to chin length Saturday at an Aveda salon. I love it. For me it’s easier than long hair because I have really thick hair and can’t do layers at all because my hair flips in the wrong direction. I can let it air dry and 1 min with the flat iron it’s great, or just take about 10 minutes with the blow dryer after a shower and I’m ready to go.

I got my hair cut like the pic you posted – with straight across bangs – and loved it. The flat iron was definitely the way to go for me for easy styling.
