Could you live with it for a week or so then dye it a different colour? Maybe a softer colour might tone it down a bit and make your skin look less pale? If you find out how to look less tired/wrinkled/bags under the eyes, please let me know too ... I'm sure you look fab really, it's just a bit different to what you have been used to
I think it may be a bit dark and a more 'golden' colour might be more flattering until it grows back.Which it will! I have cut my longish hair a few times over the years and hated it and now at 45 will never go back! I think if you are a hair person short is very difficult. You have a lovely face though so are lucky you will look ok while it grows By xmas it will be a lot longer. Last time I did that I wore a head band for ages to give the look I had before.
The red will fade rather quickly so I agree just give it a few washes and a good condition and this should make less red but very shiny hair. Regarding the style, can you try drying the fridge to the side to soften the look? Alternatively, drying it all a bit rough and messy and funky?
You do have a lovely face tho, so I'm sure a few washes will make alot of difference.
You're very beautiful and I think you CAN carry off short hair, but it's not a great cut. I agree with Rubies, I think the fringe to the side would be softer. Forget about the frown line! That razored fringey bit covering your forehead looks hard and ageing - and sorry to say it, a bit cheap. Sweep it to the side and make your eye make up a bit softer.
I would let the colour wash out and then go for something more natural (darkish brown/auburn), let the hair grow a bit too and then go to a good salon to have the shape changed. Short hair is such a nuanced thing - it can look gamin and beautiful if it's done right - and like I said, you have the face for it.
Also have a look at some really nice short cuts and maybe take a picture with you the next time - even if you want to grow it out, you can still get it cut better as you do, and you'll feel a million times better.
