I've been trying to grow my hair but yesterday got fed up and had about 2 inches cut off and more layering. I always end up regretting it.
What do you think? Honest opinions of which looks better (please excuse face obscuring, but hopefully you can get the general idea of face shape/ hair type etc etc).

The longer version is my choice.

DaisyBlameless Tue 28-Mar-17 12:16:23

The longer one.

TearGas Tue 28-Mar-17 12:16:53

Thanks user.
Oh crap...why do I always do this. I'm now going to have to endure another 2 months (at least) looking like Nicola Sturgeon aren't I? sad

By the way, can I ask if age makes any difference, does the longer one look younger? (Am 46.)

user1489179512 Tue 28-Mar-17 12:18:50

Not at all! Your hair is a lovely colour and a nice texture. Funk it up a bit with clasps and stuff while you are growing it!

user1489179512 Tue 28-Mar-17 12:19:14

The long one does look younger!

squoosh Tue 28-Mar-17 12:21:41

The longer style is nicer, very Zoe Ball. You'll have it back in no time!

BaliBound Tue 28-Mar-17 12:24:04

I prefer the longer style, and it looks younger.

EnriqueTheRingBearingLizard Tue 28-Mar-17 12:25:58

I much prefer the shorter style on you Op smile

TearGas Tue 28-Mar-17 12:29:48

Bless you Enrique smile

slyoldfox Tue 28-Mar-17 12:31:45

I like the shorter too!

DavetheCat2001 Tue 28-Mar-17 12:36:56

I think both are nice OP, but the longer one gets my vote.

pnutter Tue 28-Mar-17 12:38:45

I like the shorter (well i like both) but the shorter looks younger to me

Greenvalleymama Tue 28-Mar-17 12:39:35

You have lovely hair! I prefer the first one I think (sorry!)

isupposeitsverynice Tue 28-Mar-17 12:41:23

I prefer the shorter pic. It's just hair, it'll grow smile

floraeasy Tue 28-Mar-17 12:41:59

I prefer the longer one, but the shorter one is pretty nice too. Definitely NOT anything like Sturgeon!

In fact, I'd take either of your photos over my hair right now!

floraeasy Tue 28-Mar-17 12:42:30

The good news is apparently our hair grows faster in the warmer months, so you should have no problem getting it longer over the summer.

TearGas Tue 28-Mar-17 12:43:18

It looks a bit less Sturgeon like today I think, (not that I have anything against Nicola, but not a fan of her hair).

I think I have a psychological problem in that whenever I feel down I think 'I know, I'll get my hair cut!'. It's rarely the answer.

Also...why is it that (without a single exception IME) hair ALWAYS looks great the day you go to get it cut?! (even if it had been looking shite up to that point..)

ILostItInTheEarlyNineties Tue 28-Mar-17 12:47:13

Your hair must feel in better condition after getting cut. Both hairstyles are lovely.
Although it's hard to tell your face shape under all your OTT foundation wink I'd say you had a round face so the shorter length emphasises that.
I'm a fellow round face, the bonus being it makes you look younger, so silver lining there. smile

ILostItInTheEarlyNineties Tue 28-Mar-17 12:49:43

Looking at the 2nd pic, you sure have beautiful hair. What the hell are you moaning about? grin

TearGas Tue 28-Mar-17 12:50:32

Hmm hadn't thought about face shape, here goes without the OTT foundation. <brave>

TearGas Tue 28-Mar-17 12:51:18

pic again

joannegrady90 Tue 28-Mar-17 12:53:56

You're very pretty you can pull both off!

DessieSaysDiy Tue 28-Mar-17 12:54:10

Shorter one looks fab!smile
