Can you please spare a couple of minutes to see if this will suit me?

I have added a couple of photos to my profile, at the moment weight wise I am in between.

Do you think I would suit this cut?

Thank you in advance smile

Thank you everyone for your replies.

My mum is on stand by for babysitting and I have chosen the hairdressers so will call tomorrow.

My hair is cut like the Sarah Harding photo linked up thread and it suits me much more than the short hair I used to have (I also have a round face.). Got mine done at Toni and Guy and it's very easy to maintain, even though I go swimming every day.

I'm not sure that's exactly the one but I do think you should go shorter and more round the facey. It would look really nice.

lovely cut. I had mine cut like that about 3 years ago from a short bob and everyone was shock and said they hated it. Now whenever anyone sees a photo from that time they say how nice it was, even DH who hated it at the time. FFS. So I would say do it and see what it looks like. It will always grow!

Much agree to start with the Sarah cut.

You have a (lovely) round face - I do too - and the one time I got a short cut it looked bl*ody awful. It did absolutely nothing for me, it wasn't feminine on me, it emphasised my chin(s) blush and made me feel clumping and manly.

Ginnifer has got a gamine, Audrey Hepburn face, with a pointy chin, high defined cheekbones and quite elfin features. Sarah also has a thin-nish face but her cut is a lot more forgiving and suits a lot more face types.

Good on you for taking the plunge though! <admiring> I have had the same long bob for years and years, although I do like trying out different non-permanent styles like bun rings and plaits. I have not the patience or the time to be blow-drying into a style and using wax etc for definition. Your hair also looks soft (not fine, there's lots of it, but soft) and this (like mine) does not also lend itself to a sharply defined cut like Ginnifer's.

Imagine how Ginnifers looks without the mousse and the thickening spray and the wax and the hairspray.. Sarah's will also require a bit of styling, but you can probably scrunch some stying spray in the roots for a more convinient day-to-day look.

Being honest I think your hair is too fine. It wouldn't look anything like you wanted unless you spent ages on it every day and used a lot of product.

I had my hair like that for a couple of years, I have a very fat round face and I thought it suited me fine.

Thank you all for the replies.

I think I am going to initially go for something like Sarah Harding had and if I get on with it (and lose some weight) have the Ginnifer cut later on.

I think it's gorgeous.

Get an appointment with a stylist you feel comfortable with and go for that length. Show photos and show with your hands where you want the longest pieces to fall so they really know what they're aiming for.

You can always go shorter from that style to the Ginnifer but you can't grow it back without a lot of time or money for extensions.

Nagoo Mon 20-May-13 23:23:39

It's such a massive change.

I'd work up to it, get something I fancied a bit longer, just in case you can't deal with the shock!

That was kind of what I was going for last time but it didn't really look like that. Maybe if I try and get an appointment at the local Toni and guy it would turn out a bit better.

cherhorowitz Mon 20-May-13 23:20:12

Yep! Is it something you like? You could do it with just one side but I have a feeling you'd need both sides to balance it out.

BriansBrain Mon 20-May-13 23:14:43

Phew smile

cherhorowitz Mon 20-May-13 23:07:46

Do you remember Sarah Harding's/the Posh bob from a few years ago? I think that could work. Soft around the face to frame it but shorter in the back so it's easier to deal with. The fringe will be a PITA.

HousewifeFromHeaven Mon 20-May-13 23:01:54

That fringe will drive you batshit. A sniff of wind and it'll be all over the place!

Not offended, I posted her for honest opinions.

Thank you, it is a lot to think about.

BriansBrain Mon 20-May-13 22:57:45

As some one with hair just like yours who took a risk the plunge with a cut like that last year I would say no, don't do it.

It is such a drastic move and really does change the shape of your face, I think a looser longer cut would suit your face shape better.

And if you are used to wearing it up the shock of having to faff every morning will move you onto pinning it back within a week or two whilst praying for it to grow again.

That's my opinion, hope I haven't offended!

Thanks I will speak to the hair dresser. Last time I had my hair cut I had an a line bob but wasn't that impressed.

I really need a change as feeling so fed up but also don't want to look like an idiot!

Hmm I'm not sure , I think you'd suit something slightly longer , chin length at least

I do prefer my hair when it is darker but it really shows the grey hmm

cherhorowitz Mon 20-May-13 22:25:36

Oh yes! As long as you keep it soft around the face it would look lovely. I also think you'd suit the Ginnifer darker colour too.

Thank you for taking the time to look.

At the moment my hair is a lot longer and I wear it up all of the time so wanted a change. I worry as my face can look quite round and fat so most short styles would look daft.

Thanks again, getting stupidly excited now grin
