My hair is fine in texture, but there is a lot of it and it grows out of my head curly as hell--think ringlets. For the past couple of years, I've worn it shoulder length, long enough to pull back in a knot on the back of my head, which I did virtually every day. Convenient, especially for taekwondo; easy, but not a particularly attractive look on me because of my square jaw.
Tuesday morning I'd had enough (ENOUGH!) of feeling frumpy. I texted the girlfriend who cuts my hair and she was able to fit me in that day: by the end of the appointment, I'd gone from shaggy to this. (Of course this is not me, but it is the haircut! Image from here.)
Cute and looks much better on me than a ponytail or knot. The downside? It actually requires some work in the mornings...mousse, curling iron, hairspray, all that fun stuff. (Curly-hair bedhead is not for the faint of heart.) But it looks better, and I feel better for looking better, so the time spent is worth it!
