Long, short or very short?

What do y'all prefer, long hair, short hair or very short?

I've had long hair my whole life. For about a year and a half I've been toying with the idea of cutting my hair in an asymmetrical bob, like the now famous Pob. I always back out of doing it, because it's a huge change and I'm not convinced I'll wear it well?

I'll attach some photos: One shows the length of my hair now (and it's actually shorter than norm) and some others to show my facial structure.







What d'yah think...would "boyishly" short hair look good?

I'm also very attached to my long hair, and I was told it was a good factor in getting a man. And sadly, as I am single, that is entering into the equation. So...do guys really prefer long hair?

But, I do like the sophisticated and confident look the bob cut has.

Lately, I've been inspired by this cut...



...and thinking of going short, but not too short. So I've been growing out the front layers of my hair...



...like so...But I keep going back to thinking of just going SHORT if I'm gonna cut it. I mean, it'll go from very short to just plain ole' short anyway, right? :roll: It would just take awhile.

Hhmmmm...oh, decisions, decisions.

Personally I prefer long hair. In my opinion it's somehow more artistic (pretty odd diction I know) than short/half short hair.

But if you feel that new hairdo would suit you better, try it .

I want my long hair back, but I definitly don't regret cutting it. If it's something you want, I would definitly try it !

I'd say if you've always had long hair, give it a shot! Go short! It's hair, it'll grow back :) You never know unless you try.

I like the posh cut!

Thank you guys for your opinions!

Jehanzeb *wink*

TaMMa89 I always felt the same way. That's why I'm rather attached to it. But sometimes I feel like I'm getting to old to have long hair? Also, I thought short hair would look more professional since I'm in the market for a new job.

RusticWildFire, I do love the Posh look, too...my only complaint is the shortness in the back...what is it called, rough hewn (any hair dressers here?!)? It's like shaved almost. That might freak me out. Other than that, I think it looks saucy and confident! But like Sissimut-icehestar said...I'm afraid I'll love it for a week then be all like, "I want it long again!" come the weekend. Haha..

In my opinion you're never too old to keep long hair . My grandma had great long hair during her last times. But as I said if you feel that short suit you better, try it!

I like my hair at a medium length. Likee, shoulders? It's neater to me, & doesn't get in the way as often. Gives 'ya a clean look. I say go for it- it's true, it always grows back!

Ride more, worry less.

What I prefer for myself is my long hair, it is kinda my vanity. BUT, I DO see alot of short cuts on chics that make them look so cute, some girls look good with short, some look good with long, and some look good reguardless.

I would say, MirrorStage, you fall into the last catagory, and would look great reguardless. The bob you picked out would be very flattering, but the long hair you have now is lovely too.

Know thyself, know thy horse.
