    is fine. Steve's just an intern anyway, pfft.

    is an eyesore.

    isn't terrible, but could look a lot better.

    It looks great; Steve must be a real jerk who never wants to actually get a job working with adults

    Screw steve. Personally I think you’d look better with side bangs, however it looks nice the way it is.

    I think you have great hair, but here are my two suggestions (seeing as we have similar hair types and this is what has worked for me!): 

    – The shorter layers framing your face are a bit dated in my opinion. I think maybe if you had them evened out a bit, as well as putting some long layers towards the back, it would be less dramatic and it’d soften everything up.

    – Definitely have your hair thinned! When I had my hair long, I would go to the salon every few months for a cut and have them thin it a TON, and I invested in thinning shears to thin it up a bit and keep it from looking too heavy.

    Do you have detachable arms? How in the world do you cut your own hair? I think it looks ok, definitely not an eyesore (which I read as “eeyore” the first time around, wtf) but I’m no style guru. I only get my hair cut twice a year because I hate paying high prices and don’t want to pay some crappy hair cuttery $30 to cut it so I’d rather save and get a real nice style twice a year. I agree with a PP, unless Steve is secretly Tim Gunn or David Tutera then his words don’t hold a lot of weight!

    Your hair is just fine. It looks like you get it cut at a chain. There’s no shame in that. I’m impressed you can do this to yourself on your own.

    However, your hair is nowhere near short or in the weird in-between zone. It’s all past your shoulders, so it’s long. Short is chin length and above, medium is chin to shoulder, long is past the shoulders.

    I wouldn’t look at it and think ‘WTF is THAT?!’ but I wouldn’t look at it and think ‘that looks good’. Being brutally honest, to me the style is dated; I last had layers like that about 10 years ago. I’m also not keen on how it’s kind of flat on top, then wavy at the bottom; to me it looks like you haven’t styled it.

    I’d keep the layers, as they add texture, but I’d get rid of the graduated ones round your face. I’d consider having a long-ish, deep side-sweeping fringe to add some shape and interest, as your forehead looks a bit ‘bare’ to me, and I’d style it differently: I’d either blow-dry it straight all over, or (and because your hair looks lovely and thick and seems to have a natural wave) and practice blow-drying it ‘natural’ with a bit of hair-spray, so that you have a wave and body all over, not just at the very ends (will try to find a pic of what I mean)

    You could also experiment with up-dos: a large bun for example can look very sophisticated and is just a bit different, and is easy and quick to do.

    @mrsSonthebeach:  I think she made the in between comment about her husband’s hair.

    I think it looks fine. My sister (ex cosmetologist) cuts my hair about twice a year, and I cut my own in between. I wear my hair up so often, I can’t be bothered to pay someone to do it. I used to spend $100 on highlights & a cut…I can’t believe all that money I wasted!
