Just got a new haircut... I think I hate it - please tell me it doesn't look too bad!?

I had long hair which I was beginning to hate I now really miss it and completely love it sad and decided to just go for it and get my hair cut short. I don't think it suits my face and I don't mean for this to sound rude, but do I look 'butch'? Or not mum-like at all? I think I regret it and all my family's opinions really doesn't help!

I think it suits you and looks ace!

I agree!

I obviously don't know what you look like with long hair or if it suited you better but looking at this photo - you definitely have the face shape to carry off short hair and it doesn't make you look butch at all (especially with your fab red lippy). It must be a big change so it will take you a day or two to get used to it. I think you look lovely!

Really? I know I kind of asked for positive comments, but honestly is the best grin

I have never had it this short and feel like I did it without even thinking.

Looks great

It looks amazing.

I do t usually like short hair but you are one of the very few people that it really does look good on!

I think it looks very cute. Edgy rather than butch. I know what you mean about missing your long hair - can be a real shock to the system and short hair can feel less feminine.

I think it suits your face shape very much. I hope you get used to it soon.

Without thinking is the best way to cut all your hair off, in my opinion! Honestly it does look really nice and suits you very well. It is shocking the first time you go very short but I think over the next few days you'll settle into it and start to see what we can see.

It looks amazing! Very jealous that you can carry it off. You look stunning.

I love short hair, and that style looks fab on you. Not remotely butch, you've got a great shaped face and carry it really well. Wear it with pride and confidence!

doctorboo Mon 13-Mar-17 15:58:04

You look good with short hair better than me

notMarlene Mon 13-Mar-17 15:58:19

It looks fantastic, you've certainly got a face that can carry off short hair. Absolutely not butch or mumsy in the slightest.

Looks fantastic smile

You genuinely do look fab, edgy and smart.

Love it. Wear it with pride.

Oh thanks everyone that's really made me more confident about it. I really appreciate the comments. I thought "oh god" in the hairdressers and when I showed my mum she was horrified! I think maybe long hair suited me better but it really did take me far too long and I couldn't stand it anymore!

Waxlyrically Mon 13-Mar-17 16:02:39

I think it really suits you too - I would have short hair if I looked like you do with it!

ShoutOutToMyEx Mon 13-Mar-17 16:02:39

You look absolutely beautiful, I love it.

I'd love to comment but I can't open the picture! Grrrr.....

slinkysaluki Mon 13-Mar-17 16:28:32

It looks great, it will take a while to get used to it but it looks ace. I just had mine cut from a bob to an assymetric short do. I was unsure at first but now i like it.

Honestly it looks ace ! You suit it and you can wear it lots of ways, and it can always be grown out again which is a new style in itself. Enjoy it love x
