    Do it!

    It would be okay...

    No! Keep the long hair

    Try something else completely (please include suggestions)

     If you have extremely straight, boring hair. Most likely it’s going to end up like mine if you don’t blowdry it, even after cutting it short. It’ll still be straight boring (short) hair. I might go easy on the layers though if your hair tends to frizz easily. A soft one length look might not be too bad since it fakes volume. How about trying a long bob first and if you’re happy, slowly creep up the length?

     I definitely think you can pull of a pixie. After months of stalking pintrest pixie boards…I took the plunge and got a pixie. I love it and it’s so low maintenance:

    You can def pull it off!

    as far as donation, speak to the individual programs. One of my friends regularly donates and does not color her hair for that reason.

     I think you can pull it off! If you are unsure though you could always try a long fringe style and shorten from there. I know someone who donated to Little Princesses and they accept hair that is dyed as long as it is a natural colour so brown would be fine.

    I think you should do it! I have a friend with a haircut similar to the one you posted and a similar face shape to you and she looks great.

    I think a pixie would suit you! I went from waist length hair to a lob last year and it was one of the best hair decisions ever, I feel so much more “me” now. Highly recommend taking the plunge 🙂

    I think you can pull it off. That said, I’m gonna go against the grain as someone who had a pixie once. They take YEARS to grow out, and it’s hard to avoid some really akward growing out stages that last for months. Though I think I pulled it off and it looked cute, it also just made me FEEL unattractive and soccer mom-y. So… I’d advise against it personally, or at lest recommend that you really think about it, go to a stylist you trust 100%, and are committed to having it as a long term cut.

    I would order a pixie wig first and try it out.

    I think you have the perfect face for a pixie! Like others have said it’s a huge commitment though, so I guess follow your heart on that lol.

    As for hair donation – I spent F O R E V E R looking for a place that 1. doesn’t charge people for the wigs they make; 2. takes color treated hair; and 3. accepts a short-ish length (which won’t be the case for you going to a pixie and I ended up with 12 inches to get rid of so idk what I was worried about). 

    Looking within that criteria, I finally settled on Children With Hair Loss. I’d look into them!
