Getting my hair cut short in an hour...

... and the panic is setting in.

I've got the most rubbish, fine, limp just skimming my shoulders hair, and I'm going for the chop.

I'm thinking of, and hoping for, something like maybe Gwyneth Paltrow in Sliding Doors or that actress whose initials are GG with the lovely short haircut (I've completely forgotten her name) or Michelle Williams when she was growing out that pixie crop.

Please tell me your stories of how you went short and it was the best thing you ever did. Please!

Chop it. Mine is fine and lank when long. Had it cut into a Michelle Williams type pixie 3 years ago and never looked back. No way would I ever have long hair again. If you don't like it then it grows back. If you don't give it a go you will never know! Good luck smile

If you are too nervous, maybe have it chopped to jaw length and then go for the full pixie when you are comfortable.

I hanker after Rita Ora's short cut but I think I have too many years and too little hair!

I do always hold the view that hair grows so a cut is always reversible though smile

I'm going for it. I feel a bit sick. I WILL back looking like this...

Do it, do it, do it! As Helen says, it'll always grow back smile

I went really short again recently after having had a non-cut for a while, and I'm so happy with it. Like you, I have really feeble, fine hair and it's now just so easy to look after.

My hairdresser also introduced me to the delights of styling powder. That's a bit of a revelation too.

I have had short hair and it needed a lot more styling than long hair...

Pic or it didn't happen!! Is that actor called Ginnifer Goodwin?

FeckityFeck Tue 02-Jun-15 12:21:33

I did it a few months ago - took this picture of Ginnifer Goodwin in and I love it grin

I wash it, blow dry it and put wax through it. Takes maximum of 20 mins, including shower.

Can't wait to see pics!!
I'll be going for this GG cut & style on the 16th!

WickedWax Tue 02-Jun-15 14:59:06

YES that's the actress!

It's done and I love it <preens>

Went longer than I originally wanted but the stylist was very good and as she said - you can always have more off, you can't stick it back on.

I'll post a duckface selfie when home in a bit grin

So glad you are pleased with it. smile I had mine longer at the fringe the first time I did it. By the time I went back for my next cut I was ready for the shorter fringe. It really is the best thing I've ever done. It's so easy to do in the mornings and looks so much better than it did long.

Here we go. I can't stop looking in the mirror.

Pictures please, I have a meh bob at the moment and am soooo tempted to do this but scared due to huge round football head and double chin........

Waywarddaughter Tue 02-Jun-15 16:37:33

Fabulous!!!!

mrsdavidbowie Tue 02-Jun-15 16:38:07

Love it! Really suits you. I'm tempted to go short again but have put on three stone in weight since the last time I had a cut like that. Not sure it will look so good with a flabby double chin!

noddyholder Tue 02-Jun-15 16:48:28

Looks great on you!

ophiotaurus Tue 02-Jun-15 16:56:00

You look fantastic! It really suits you smile

Gorgeous! I went from bra strap length to that cut last summer and I just love it, so easy to manage it and really flattering.

hauntedhenry Tue 02-Jun-15 17:05:46

Looks great!!

Oh wow that is gorgeous - makes me want to have mine cut again smile.
