Can I get away with this short haircut?

I'm utter bored of my hair, it's fairly fine and the ends are in really bad condition! So that's me taking the dodgy selfie in the pink top, I really fancy the short hairdo attached but I'm worried that because I don't have delicate features like the model I'll look stupid? I can trust MN to be honest with me grin

Gosh yes go for it! It's a nice trendy style and would suit your hair type. Also it's not too short so you could easily grow it again if you ever wanted to.

100% yes! It's lovely and wearable and would suit both your hair type and striking face <3

I think it would definately suit you.

Why dont you tuck some behind your right ear, brush some over to a new parting like the picture & see what it looks like..

I also think you should have it a similar colour to the picture plus some lowlights. Please let us see an after photo, when you get it done!

You've got a lovely face. I think it'll look great on you.

Thank you blush If I'm brave enough, my appt is tomorrow evening!

Yes, that will definitely suit you! Please post an after selfie too!

Looks great!

Wow, you look fab! I love this style and it looks terrific on you. You're making me want to run to the hairdresser smile

Ooh I'm really tempted by hair like this but never been brave enough before, you might have inspired me! It looks great. How thick is your hair? Mine's pretty thick so wary of short styles.

It looks amazing OP, I love it! Getting mine chopped off soon and you're strengthening my resolve with your awesome cut grin

Ugh, I covet this hair! It's looks fab on you OP - on me it would require hours with a straightener every morning so not going to happen unfortunately!

(PS - you can get root powder stuff if you want to try and get that just got out of bed look from the model pose you posted. Boosts the roots and ruffles it a bit!)

Sugarpiehoneyeye Tue 11-Oct-16 20:31:52

Aww, you look fabby OP, and younger!
What a good choice, wish I was as brave as you !

Thank you so much blush I was feeling rather impulsive, it only occurred to me to do it yesterday! And thank you for the tips, I hope I can 'jush' it as good as the hairdresser! My hair is on the fine side lazyb0nes so maybe you should get it thinned down? If it helps I'd love to have thick hair!

lazyb0nes Tue 11-Oct-16 21:50:09

Ha ha we always want what we don't have! My hair winds me up, there's so much of it and I can't be bothered with much/any drying or styling so trying to figure out what shorter styles might work smile

PipersPiping Tue 11-Oct-16 21:52:20

Love it, really suits you.

ThisPasadenaHomemaker Tue 11-Oct-16 21:53:00

OP you look AMAZEBALLS 😍

ConkerTriumphant Tue 11-Oct-16 21:55:29

Proper nice !

1DAD2KIDS Tue 11-Oct-16 22:52:55

It works. Looks great. You must be relieved because you never quiet know until you get it done. Enjoy

Wow it looks great! I'd never be brave enough to have such a drastic chop.

You look amazing and it's exactly the same if not nicer than the style you wanted. Love it.
