I LOVE my hair short and spikey. It's super easy to style, super easy to deal with, no babies pulling on it, etc. This is how I love it best:
(Totally ignore the goofy facial expression in the following pic. Remember, we're dealing with the hair. hee hee)
There are a couple of downsides to short hair. One is that I have to get it cut often. My hair grows really fast, and my hair cutter lives quite a ways away. But I can deal with that.
The other downside I can't just "deal" with, however. My hubby doesn't like my hair like this. He doesn't like it short and spikey--says it's too much like a boys'.
This is how my hair is currently, though it's gotten longer since this picture was taken. (Sorry for the blurry picture. It was a kind of dark room, and I don't like my picture taken, so there aren't very many very often.):
My hubby says he doesn't mind if I get it cut shorter, just not as short as I'd really like. He suggested something like what Alice has in the movie Twilight. But my hair has wonky waves to it, and I really don't have the time to flat iron, style, etc. I need quick and easy.
I also can't do a whole lot in the way of bangs. See how my hair always flows out around my forehead? That's just the way it goes. It always has. It won't hang down nicely in front.
So here's where you come in. How do you like my hair? Short or long? Any suggestions on a style that's not too short bu not too long that you think might work for me?
