    I love this haircut and think it would look amazing on you! It’s not too short–if you said you wanted to go chin-length, I’d say no, probably not good for your face. BUT, i think hair this length is slimming on a face, more so than long hair, so I say go for it! I love the face-framing pieces. And i am super jealous of your hair color. Love it =]

    She has pretty fine/flat hair, too. I’ve been using that Argan oil and i looooove it. It’s great on my hair (makes it smell good and keeps it not fuzzy and I have way fuzzy hair). A volumizer for your roots might help pick it up. My stylist used it on me once and I wasn’t too happy b/c i already have a ridic amount of volume, so I imagine it’d really help you if that’s what you wanted. I think it’s cute; go for it! Changes are good for us =]

    I say cut it. That’s always ALWAYS my choice!! I was growing my hair out and realized I HATED it. Alwyas had it up. And short hair helps me be the best version of myself…. so I took the plunge and cut it for our e-pics – best decision I could have made. Will probably keep it short up until our wedding next June and have a super sassy ‘do. If you think that shoulder-length Kelly is the best version of ‘you’, then GO FOR IT!!! πŸ™‚ That haircut is supercute. Keep us posted!

    I think it’s super cute!

    One thing to think about though:

    When is your wedding? If you want to do an updo, you might want to stick with a longer ‘do. I’m trying to grow mine out from a bob I got almost 1.5 years ago. lol

    My best friend has really thin hair. She just cut her hair, i’ll attach a pic.  I blocked out her face, well, because I don’t know if she’d want me posting pics of her πŸ™‚ She says she can style in 10 min.

    But if your wedding is soon i’d maybe think about what kind of hair style you want too.

    Then I say go for it. Then you can have extra-sassy hair for “I just got engaggeeeddd!!!” shots. :p

    I have the same kind of hair as you, and for a loooooooooong time I was terrified of cutting it short, because I’d always had it long. Well, except that time in high school where I let my 15 year old bff cut it into a completely straight, no layers, chin length bob (using paper scissors, even). It looked horrible! So I assumed all short hair would look the same on me.

    My junior year of college I finally let someone talk me into layers, from chin to shoulder (much like what you posted), and loved it. I was amazed how much more body I got just from a little less length. After that I kept going shorter and shorter. My stylist in the States has similar hair to mine, which really helped too ~ she was able to commiserate. I think my favorite hairstyle was when it was layered just around chin length (not long enough to hit a collared shirt in the back), and she layered it so it would flip out on it’s own. I’ve always been a 2minute or less prep kinda girl, so all I had to do was towel dry it, part it, then finger comb it upside down and flip over. It air dries in about 20 minutes.

    I cut it shorter (cropped) a year ago, and am now pretty much decided on growing it back out into a bob. πŸ™‚

    I say cut it! It’ll always grow back if you’re not happy, but I think it’ll look cute on you!

    Just be sure to tell your stylist exactly what you want (and how you want to be able to style it) – sometimes the cut can add a lot!

    Your post could have been written by me! I have the exact same kind of hair and its so annoying sometimes! You put all this effort into styling it an it goes completely flat and straight. I got a hair cut very similar to the one you posted above, and it think it is definitely the best style for our hair types. I kept mine a bit longer than the picture above though, and didn’t run into the problem of having a shorter cut that makes your face look rounder.

    I was always putting my hair up too because it was always falling straight into my face and it felt so heavy whenever it grew long. Something my stylist does (and forgive me, any hairstyling bees out there for the lack of a better term) is to make very light ends to my layers by cutting INTO the hair. There is also a special pair of sissors they can use that cuts some of the hair, while leaving some intact. It really softens up the end of your layers and makes your hair feel light and bouncy.

    I am in a hair funk too – my layers have grown out and my hair is so plain again!

    I also wanted to say, I think you should consider a super sassy cut to eliminate any “roundness” you think you carry in your face. One time, my dad told me “ann, fat girls can’t have short hair” and it stuck with me for 10 years, and I never cut it through high school and college. Then, I got a horrible haircut at a cheap place, had to get it “fixed” at a VERY expensive salon, and it turned into my signature asymetrical bob that I’ve grown to love over the last few years. I got SOOO lucky!!Do what you want and don’t worry about “roundness” in your face; A killer haircut will accentuate ANY type of face!! πŸ™‚

    Cut it! It would look SO cute on you. I actually might steal those picture to take to my next haircute. I am in desperate need of a change and will wear my hair down at my wedding (whenever that might be… I’m waiting for the ring too!). And the haircut is SO adorable!

    I think that hc would look really cute on you and if you want to do an updo, you’d have time to grow it out a little if needed. Have fun on your trip!
