Could you pull off a very short haircut? John Frieda once told me the way to tell if you’ll look good with short hair is to ask yourself three questions:

    I wore my hair short thru much of professional career, then a few years ago, I lost all my hair from chemotherapy treatments.  Naturally, when it started growing again, I didn’t want to cut it, so I let it grow.  After about five years,  I realized what a royal pain it is to take care of long hair and I pulled it back in a pony tail and ignored it for a while, that got really old really quick.  Now I’ve gone back to my very short "professional" style, and I love it.  It is so easy to care for, and frankly I don’t give two hoots if others like the style, I like it, and that is what counts to me.

    I have been wearing my hair short for a long time. Recently decided I wanted a change and started letting it grow. After a few months of the growing pain stage and then seeing hair on my head that needed care. Decided to cut it off again, and went out and purchased a couple of wigs in the length and styles that I wanted my hair to be. Voila! It is working for me and I look good with or with out the wig. I love being able to mix it up! No shame in my wigs…LOL

    I’ve worn my hair short on and off all my life. Its looks good short and long. I’m wearing it in between right now. But who knows I might cut it short again during the summer but after my ds wedding. I’m not making any drastic changes right now.

      Just had my hari cut very short and sassy today and I love love love it. I wore it short most of my life until I was 50. I then decided to let it grow a bit. Every now and then it looked ok but I was never quite pleased with my profile when I caught sight of it in the mirror……..this went on for about ten years and also with that I drifted from hair dresser to hair dresser and never pleased. Well todayI took the plunge and went to a new hair dresser that several people I know go to and told her my story. She cut my hair short and she seemed pleased with her work as  she said to her assistant “look at what a difference this cut does for this woman” She told me that the style I walked in with aged me. Any I know that I am going on and on but I guess it is because I am so pleased with my new short cut.

    Since the ‘wash and go’ look doesn’t work for me, long hair is easier!  I can put it up if it’s hot, wear it down for a dressy evening look, in a ponytail it stays out of my face in the wind (important, as I’m a painter who works en plein air, and you can’t brush short pieces away from your eyes with paint coated gloves or the tip of a brush!).  I fantasize about short hair sometimes, but I don’t have the profile, the jaw or the long neck that make it look great!

      I had totally steaight hair for most of my life and could wear it pretty much any way I chose. I had short hair for many year. Now that my hair has turned mostly gray, it has decided to curl! In its short style, it would sproing out like Pippi Longstocking’s pigtails. I am letting it grow a tad longer to see what it wants to do. So far I am enjoying its new personality.

        Wow! Your hair started getting curly while the grey came in too? I was so surprised while it was happening to me. Now the length is just below my ears and I am no longer enslaved by the hair-dryer, straightener, etc. I apply Aveda Go Curly after my shampoo and let it air dry. I love, love my curls.

      I cut my hair in a Meg Ryan-ish shag  once back in the 80s and loved it but I honestly think I’m a long hair lifer too. It is easier in a lot of respects and Long will always feel sexier and more youthful for me personally. I will add that  I do admire short on other women like Judi Dench, Helen Mirren, Jane Fonda, Annette Bening to name a few so I say if you have the attitude, yearning and profile go for it !

        I too have tried the ‘Meg Ryan’ look and I can appreciate that there are many women that ‘rock’ short hair. I however have thick BUT fine hair that just looks ‘blah’ short. While all my friends moaned about their wavy or curly hair, I bemoaned the fact that mine was ‘poker’ straight and I had sooooo much of it!

        The past few years I have been letting my hair grow. It’s about an inch and a half below my shoulders now and cut into a long, shag. I love the ease of my long hair.  It’s still straight and thick, but I can pull it up on the sides, put it into a ‘messy’ bun or french roll or put some nice waves into it with hot rollers. I usually shampoo it before bed, let it air dry until bedtime when I plop it on top of my head in a loose bun. In the a.m., when I take the ‘rubber’ band out, my hair is still pretty damp, so I finish drying with a blow dryer and style. I like being able to say, ‘hmmm, is this a hair up or hair down day?’ Just feels like I have more versatility with long hair.

        It’s all about feeling good about yourself and what makes you happy.
