Ok, I'm getting my hair cut sometime in the next week or two, and its going to end up short. Its just too heavy and there is soo much of it and takes soo long to dry. I'm cutting it for angel hair for kids so it has to be at least 10 inches long. This leaves me with about 4-6 inches <at the longest parts of my head>.

I have never really had short hair so I don't know what to do with it. Can anyone give me any ideas? or good websites to look at. or pictures of their short hair. I'm thinking that sort of choppy look, but ....?

<sorry because i know that this has already been asked before, but can you do it for me??? please?>

thanx in advance!!

Not sure how short you're talking here, but when I cut my hair off to donate to Locks for Love, I gave my hairdresser these pictures for my new haircut:









I'm not a huge Kirsten Dunst fan but I thought her hair was soooo cute when she cut it like this.  It's really, really easy to style it, and I have a round face so it's not a style limited to people who have Kirsten's facial shape.  My hair is almost back to where it was before I cut it.  I'm growing it out to donate again.

Please post pics when you've gotten your new 'do!  How exciting!!!

well for me an ELEVATED BOB has always worked out pretty well...no matter what i TRY to do with my hair i always cut it back to this i love it. ok let me explain its like a regular bob except it gets higher toward the back of your head, so in the back you can have it as short as you want even shaved or shaggy and let it run down your face. i like to keep it along my chin line, but thats just me.heres a few pics of my hair, i dont have any back shots though...

I just cut my hair short again after two years of choppy layers. You might consider (if possible) a consultation with your stylist beforehand to see if they can suggest anything flattering for your face shape. My stylist keeps a huge book full of hair photos from various magazines organized by length and hair texture. I let me stylist cut my hair however she wants, though, so I never have to worry about bringing ideas in.  Huh

Also (this isn't snarky, but I just read about it!) most organizations that make wigs for kids/needy/etc. have plenty of hair, but not enough money! So monetary donations are great, too. =)

thanx again everyone

Uber-crazy,

First, much kudos for donating hair; what a noble thing to do.  Second, the style suited to you would depend on your height, face shape, and hair texture.  Could you maybe give us a bit more info about yourself? 

BTW, I agree that Dunst's hair looks fabulous.

uber-crazy, that looks great. What did you end up telling them to do?  I had my hair cut sort of like that once and loved it, but I don't know what they did.  They just cut it and I ended up getting someone else to do my hair the next time and it didn't end up right because I didn't know what to tell them.

i still don't know if i actually like it - its soo short Sad


when I cut my hair short it took some time to get used to it (and to figure out that I didn't need to use so much shampoo!) and love it--so give it some time..

I'm growing my hair out now so I can donate it and you've totally inspired me to keep going (my hair is sooo close to being 10 inches that is is really requiring all my patience not to get it cut right this instance--patience and alot of homework to occupy my time with...ahh midterms)

Did you end up having a consultation as someone suggested or did you just go in?

Aww wow thanx guys. I can't believe that soo many people like it! I really just posted this and went to my grandmothers, then when i came back i'm like 'holy crap!! thats lots of people that like my hair!'

box of purls - i brought some pictures, but what i got was actually really different than what i brought. <i am soo going back to that stylist!>

sillydickens - ooo, wait, it was actually worth it. All the ladies at the salon were soo amazed that i was doing this, and just having all those ladies cooing over how amazing you <and your hair is> is totally worth it. never mind the fact that your doing something really really nice for some little kid that has gone through something really really hard.

and to everyone else that thinks my hair looks good - well, lets just say you boosted my self-esteem soo much right now and I LOVE YOU ALL!!!!

thank you all for all the nice things you said  Grin Grin Grin

You are so lucky. When I donated my hair, it was down to my waste . . . a little longer, actually. The ladies in the salon had no idea what I was doing (wtf, right? it was San Francisco!) and my hair ended up looking so country. I hated it. It's almost to my shoulder blades now, I think.

Maybe when it gets long again I'll try out asking for Kirsten Dunst's haircut.

i had totally forgotten that i had cut my hair for the kids with cancer, so when this postcard came in the mail today, it blew me away. It pretty much says thank you and that "you are truly an angel to a child", i almost started to cry when i saw it.

thats about it - and thanx to everyone who say my hair looks good - you make my year Smiley

I'm actually chopping all of mine off tonight... not like it's that long to begin with, but much longer than I want it.

Now I just have to figure out what I want by the time I go in!

Well, I chopped it and ended up with a vague combo of the Keira Knightly (sp?) and the Kirsten Dunst.  I'm happy.
