I had mine cut from below shoulder length to short in September and love it. It's much easier and looks like I've made an effort (although I haven't) now more often than not. I used to wear it back in a ponytail too much.
No idea what styles suit you; I'm crap at that sort of thing and my hair is quite curly. I went in and picked out photos from mags I liked and told him what I didn't want (no bob for me, please) and he did the rest.
Good luck. Even if it's awful it'll grow back, so it's a calculated risk.
I had long hair a few years ago and just put it in a pony tail every day. Never did anything with it. So I cut it allll off and loved it - much shorter than those... oh I miss my short hair. I did have to wash it daily but it took about three seconds and not much longer to dry and style. And it was lovely <sob>
I started growing it again when I was pregnant because I knew I'd never wash it every day - well now it's getting long again I don't know what to dooooo. Not much help, am I?
go for it, like JJ said it will soon grow back if you don't like it and if you have it shoulder length at least you can still wear it up if need be. I had a mad moment in the summer and decided to chop my long hair off, walked into the hairdresser and told them to just crop it, my hair now looks like this and I love it!!
by the way just looked at your profile pics and think it would look really nice shoulder length because of the wave you have, don't think you should go chin length though as it may not lay as nice IYSWIM
