Thinking of going in for the chop...would love some picture inspiration! Head-turning in a fabulous way, obvs! 😂 Ideally with a fringe. Thanks lovelies. x

maybe something like this? (if it isn't too short)

I’m hoping to eventually get a short haircut similar to this (the end result). When that will be who can say but I’m fed up waiting!

I have (had - it's unkempt right now!!) similar to Matilda in Leon. I have had several people of around my age tell me they don't know why, but they think that I look like an assassin....the power of film, even if we don't realise we have been influenced.....

I have had a lot of compliments on it.

YouStupidBoy Tue 16-Jun-20 17:12:40

@NameChange84 I really like that cut.

NiceLegsShameAboutTheFace Tue 16-Jun-20 18:40:09

Would definitely turn heads grin

NameChange84 Tue 16-Jun-20 19:05:40

Glad you liked it. The Leon Bob is cool too.

I saw a woman the other day with this sort of cut and she really suited it and I thought it was quite different and daring.

YouStupidBoy Tue 16-Jun-20 19:41:23

I like the texture in that one.

Cocolapew Tue 16-Jun-20 19:44:05

Bobs aren't short hair confused
Google Michelle Williams short hair, hers was always lovely.

NameChange84 Tue 16-Jun-20 19:51:28

No-one recommended a bob @cocolapew confused

OP said she HAS a bob and she is wanting short hair.

NameChange84 Tue 16-Jun-20 19:52:55

Sorry got mixed up there myself and thought YouStupidBoy was the OP blush...don’t mix your painkillers folks lol

I posted a photo of my face by mistake. Have reported. Sorry.

Had mine cut today, turned out shorter than expected.

I asked my hairdresser for a Mary Nightingale.

I don't know if it's head turning but many people have commented on it. Mind you, he's a very good hairdresser. If you find one of those the haircut will be head turning anyway.

Depends what type of hair you have?

Starfish83 Tue 16-Jun-20 20:47:00

Thanks very much for the responses so far.

Just to clarify, I’m including bobs in my thinking - @Cocolapew, apologies if this isn’t technically short hair and I have my wording wrong. 😬

and @NameChange84, I really like those cuts, and @YouStupidBoy, I love yours! What’s the upkeep, etc. like?

Thanks @NiceLegsShameAboutTheFace, those women look amazing, but those styles aren’t for me!

@Chochito, your hair looks gorgeous, hope you’re pleased with it!

Thanks @SuckingDieselFella!

@Lilysharp, hair is fine but masses of it (so people think I have thick hair). Currently very long. I like having lots of hair, don’t want it to be ‘thinned out’, so thinking a blunt, precision cut might work... x

Something very similar to this with a shaved undercut on the sides rather than a scissor undercut.

MaverickDanger Tue 16-Jun-20 20:51:41

Ahh picture didn’t attach annoyingly

Cocolapew Tue 16-Jun-20 20:55:57

I thought my hair was long when i had a bob 😂

Cocolapew Tue 16-Jun-20 20:59:38

Is this too short?

Lilysharp Tue 16-Jun-20 22:17:04

This is nice

Lilysharp Tue 16-Jun-20 22:23:35

Also this...probably is thinned out but still looks thick?

Carolbaskinstiger Tue 16-Jun-20 22:27:12

A mullet would certainly turn heads grin

YouStupidBoy Wed 17-Jun-20 05:39:23

@Starfish83 the upkeep means really frequent trims as it's a really sharp, precision cut and you need to really trust your hairdresser to get it right at first! If you're in a hurry it looks fine just tucked behind your ears though.

Chochito Wed 17-Jun-20 08:54:27

How frequent trims @YouStupidBoy?
