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

Virgil Mon 20-May-13 22:12:26

Is your profile public? I can't see it

ThreeDaughtersLoveSandwiches Mon 20-May-13 22:13:18

Probably not I will have a look now!

buttercrumble Mon 20-May-13 22:13:46

Beautiful hairstyle but i cant see your profile pictures.

ThreeDaughtersLoveSandwiches Mon 20-May-13 22:15:15

It is public now, sorry about that blush

buttercrumble Mon 20-May-13 22:17:52

Ooh yes would look really nice smile

cocolepew Mon 20-May-13 22:18:09

Yes smile

ThreeDaughtersLoveSandwiches Mon 20-May-13 22:23:36

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

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.

ThreeDaughtersLoveSandwiches Mon 20-May-13 22:27:25

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

ggirl Mon 20-May-13 22:30:34

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

ggirl Mon 20-May-13 22:32:41

this sort of length

ThreeDaughtersLoveSandwiches Mon 20-May-13 22:53:05

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!

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!

ThreeDaughtersLoveSandwiches Mon 20-May-13 22:59:39

Not offended, I posted her for honest opinions.

Thank you, it is a lot to think about.

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!

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.

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

Phew smile

ThreeDaughtersLoveSandwiches Mon 20-May-13 23:16:55

Do you mean like this

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.

ThreeDaughtersLoveSandwiches Mon 20-May-13 23:23:02

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.

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!

cherhorowitz Mon 20-May-13 23:24:56

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.

BOF Mon 20-May-13 23:29:52

I think it's gorgeous.

ThreeDaughtersLoveSandwiches Tue 21-May-13 07:27:53

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.
