Since You Brought It Up....

Here's the thing...I've been considering cutting my hair for a while now. I mean, anyone who's known me any length of time has seen me with a variety of cuts, colors and styles, so this really shouldn't surprise anyone. Honestly, the only thing that's stopped me from cutting my hair before now is my weight. The last time I had truly short hair I was much thinner. Now that my face is much more "full" I'm afraid I couldn't pull it off. I always felt like the longer hair at least made my face look thinner. (Last year when I cut it to my shoulders I felt like it made my face look fat. I look back at the pictures from that and cringe!)

But when Travis saw those pictures I posted of me & Corey the other day, he once again began his entreaties that I should cut my hair short. (For his part, he thinks short hair is sexy & spunky.) Cami will be here next month, so it would be the perfect time to get a new cut. The only problem is, I don't know what style or length would look good on me, considering my current size. So I'm open to suggestions. I've got pictures here of styles that I like and I've numbered them 1-6. Some of them are celebraties, some of them aren't. Really it's about the hair. Please, please, please feel free to offer suggestions and comments. And if anyone has a suggestion that's not on this post, get me a picture or a description or something. I'm really, really open to your opinions on this.

1. Okay, maybe I like this style just because I secretly want to look like Jessica Alba. Don't we all?

2. Cami is my hair too thin & fine to pull this off?

3. If I were 25 pounds lighter I think I'd have gotten this cut years ago!


4. This might actually be my first choice. It's the one I'm leaning toward anyway.




5. Now that I look at this one, I think it looks too old lady-ish



6. I've always loved Posh's hair, but I think you have to have a personal trainer and stylist to pull off such cutting edge looks all the time. (Besides, isn't this the cut that the infamous "Kate" has now? It's sad that I know that & I don't even watch that show!)

I vote number 1 or 2. Posh's hair is cute but it's so Posh and anyone else who tries it will look like Kate (I've also never seen that show). I've heard Kate has ruined the look.

All you have to do is go to the grocery store checkout to know who "Kate" is. I vote for #4.

Yes you could do #2 with your hair and it would look really cute. But I like #4 the best and think that it would also work well with your density and texture. We could do one, try it for a couple of days and then go to the other if you wanted to.

I think they are all cute. You could pull them all off, some would just be a little more work than others. On a different note Posh and Kate do not have the same hair. Kate's is a little like Posh's in the front but way shorter in the back, almost spikey. Plus I have never thought Kate's was cut very well. It is blunt in some places and choppy in others, and really doesn't blend. Posh is very cute yet sophisticated and spunky at the same time. Their cuts are totally different.

Posh Spice honey. One of the Spice Girls. Real name: Victoria Beckham. (She's married to David Beckham.)

When I saw that pic of your short hair I started thinking that you should chop your hair off again, it's so cute! And you do NOT have a fat face! I like #1 & #4.
And don't get me started about Kate's hair, ugh!!!! I want to grab my scissors and get on a plane everytime I see it!!! I wouldn't hate it so much if the front blended into the back. It's so annoying.
Good luck with your hair Cali!
