As you may or may not know, shortly after my mama was diagnosed with breast cancer, I decided to grow my hair out for Locks of Love. (You can read more about this here.) Well, the time for the cut is drawing near, which means I need to start looking at styles.
I haven't gone short-short since I was kid and had to cut my hair after a perm gone wrong, so this is a tad scary. What if I look terrible with a short do? Eep! But, you know what? The purpose behind the cut is far more important than a bad hair day (or year), so I'm going to do this thing.
I've collected a few cute cuts and would love your feedback. Keeping in mind that my face is not celebrity-thin, which cut do you think would look the best on me? I have a favorite, but my mind isn't made up so I'm not going to tell you which one it is yet. First, I'd love your two cents. So, can you spare some change to help me with mine?
Option #1: The TomKat Cut
Pro: I'm a tucker. Not a day goes by that I don't tuck my hair behind my ears. I like that this cut makes that possible.
Con: I've had bangs like this before (image two), and they're a lot harder to keep up than they look.
Option #2: The Big Love Look
Pro: I love the longer layers in the front. I think it will help disguise my double-chin dance.
Con: My hair is naturally wavy, which means it would probably be a pain to get the sleek, straight strands.
Option #3: The Princess Part
Pro: My hair is definitely on the thick side, and this seems like it would accommodate that without much fuss.
Con: Does it look cute or messy? Not sure.
Option #4: New Moon, New Do
Pro: Feels like a modern and fun take on the traditional short bob.
Con: Like I'll ever look as cute as Miss Alice. That's a hard act to follow, even if it is just hair.
Option #5: Liv's Locks
Pro: People sometimes tell me I look like Miss Tyler, so maybe that means this cut would look good with my face.
Con: It looks like it might be too long. I have to cut at least 6 inches.
So, what do you think? 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5? I can't wait to hair...errr, I mean hear. ;)
