I love this! What do you think? Lots of maintenance? Would it suit a round face?

I'm petrified that is may turn out like this shock

I have literally just had my hair cut like that...copied from exactly the same picture as well that my hairdresser found for me!

My short side is not quite as short as the picture but I absolutely love it. I had shoulder length hair which just hung there and its so easy to style now. She did it all the same length first of all in case I hated it and then went shorter one side. Im so pleased I had it done.

Looks quite high maintenance, but I suppose it depends on your hair type. If you already have short(ish) hair, then I guess you'll already have some idea of how much you will have to do to it each day.

I think it is a lovely style.

Iheartttc - no way! Is it easy to do? Does it need lots of product?

Cardamomginger - my hair is shoulder length at the moment, like iheartttc it just kind of hangs there and makes me feel all bunched up around the neck hmm

Love it. I imagine it would be difficult to keep the height in it...would consider this if maintenance was easy....

The model's face is not round

I took that pic to the hairdressers too grin. I have a round face and lived it.

*loved even

I think you will look like this

I have a very round wide face and I would not choose this type of style. Though what one person calls round is very different to what another may call round.
I think this would be high maintenance(but do bear in mind I am lazy with a capital T when it comes to hair!!
I think it depends on how your hair naturally sits as well as mine falls into a centre parting and I would be constantly fighting with it if I tries to do this style.......I do like it mind you..............

This is me with a similar style when I was at my roundest of face. I had more of a fringe than the pic at this stage.

ihearttc Thu 27-Feb-14 09:08:06

Mine isn't so high as the way would I be able to do that every morning. But the basic cut is exactly the same.

It takes virtually no styling. I literally just wash it and rough dry it then stick some wax/texture stuff on it and go.

It looks less mumsy than a bob but very easy to do...but I am probably the less stylish person there is! My face is also quite round but it looks better like this than in a bob which was how I was going to have it. I hate having my hair cut but Im actually really happy with this.

i like it, it looks like michelle williams's new do

Whitershade - that's lovely! Really suits you smile

What would it be like on a windy day though?
Would your hair stay in place or would you get that "comb-over" look that was beloved of older men fighting the truth?

Jenna Elfman's is nice.

NewtRipley Fri 28-Feb-14 19:58:36

I also like it slightly shorter. I think less bouff might suit a rounder face. Jenna Elfman's is really nice.
