Tell me I'm being stupid

I had my hair cut today, pretty drastically. I tend to not wear it down, ever. Mainly because of a long history of bullying and snide comments over my hair. I like the new cut BUT it was meant to be able to be tied up, and it's too short
Now I'm panicking blush
Ridiculous I know

I don't think you're being stupid but I do think you are still affected by the bullying. If you've always worn your hair a certain way it can take a while to be comfortable with a new hairstyle. You know your new hair looks good, keep telling yourself that and ready yourself for all the compliments. smile

Worst comes to worst you just need to wait a few weeks till it grows a bit.

I am, I know that. Just having a moment that people will laugh at me sad
I'm veering between that and then thinking actually it will break me of my habit of wearing it up

Post a picture so we can admire it! I'm sure it looks gorgeous smile

It's so hard to take a photo of! (Excuse my spotty skin)

Your hair is beautiful and that cut looks fab! It will inspire deep hair envy, not laughter.

AWholeLottaNosy Mon 17-Nov-14 17:28:37

Wow you have lovely hair! Naturally curly and in such good condition. You should definitely wear it down and show it

PicnicGatecrasher Mon 17-Nov-14 17:28:58

Well I love it for starters!! That is one amazing hairdo!

TheCowThatLaughs Mon 17-Nov-14 17:29:31

It's really nice and suits you! Bet you'll end up going shorter next time...

squoosh Mon 17-Nov-14 17:29:50

It's really gorgeous!

Curly hair is on my wishlist for my next life. Along with long legs and olive skin.

AWholeLottaNosy Mon 17-Nov-14 17:29:56

Can I ask why people bullied you because of your hair?

Thurlow Mon 17-Nov-14 17:30:18

No one is going to laugh - that's a fantastic cut!

Ooh noooo ! I love it, I love ringlets my friend has a bob like this with her brown curly hair.

Uber jealous !

goodasitgets Mon 17-Nov-14 17:32:03

Why? Because of the colour and the curls. Mainly the colour. I've coloured it into oblivion but it's back to natural colour at the moment
It was so bad when I was younger I wouldn't even sleep with it down

UterusUterusGhali Mon 17-Nov-14 17:32:21

Flibbertyjibbet Mon 17-Nov-14 17:33:56

I bet your hairdresser did it on purpose so you can't put it up...

goodasitgets Mon 17-Nov-14 17:35:03

Ha! Was actually a new girl, usual one is on maternity, and the one that made it shorter last time is also on maternity now

MidnightHag Mon 17-Nov-14 17:36:09

Full of envy for your beautiful hair!

goodasitgets Mon 17-Nov-14 17:36:13

squoosh - I have the long legs at 5ft 10 but am so pale that Caspar would be jealous grin

AWholeLottaNosy Mon 17-Nov-14 17:39:54

That's such a shame you were bullied for your hair. These things can leave a lasting legacy but I hope these comments are helping you. Those bullies were stupid and jealous. Your hair is a real asset to you!

Oscarandelliesmum Mon 17-Nov-14 17:40:43

It is fab, you look great. I too would looooove hair like yours!

goodasitgets Mon 17-Nov-14 17:45:12

Its when people stare or look that I struggle. Guess I'm thinking they are wanting to take the piss. Part of me knows they are probably just looking straight through me and not noticing but it's such a hard thing to shake off
