Time for a shearing?

Hello Fabbers! 

I'm starting to wonder if it's time for a haircut. I've been feeling lately that my hair is a bit "blah". It's just…there. I don't know what to do with it. I keep it down, I put it in a ponytail to go to the gym…and that's that. I've posted some pictures of my hair at different lengths--the first one is the current length (forgive the bare shoulders--I'm in workout gear). The current length is about the longest it's ever been in my life. I've had a pixie cut before, but don't think it works so well for my face. Also, it curls in humid/rainy weather. There's a lot of that in Edinburgh, so I kind of try to accommodate that. I've included a shot to show just how curly it can get. 

If I don't take off length..I still feel like maybe a change in shape is in order. Thoughts?

Yay: Cut it off!
Nay: No, do something else!

    You have such a gorgeous face, I say cut!

    I think a shorter bob that you can wear curly or straight would look excellent. You have really nice hair texture and colour.

    I don't know, you'll look fab anyway! nr.5 is TDF:-))))

    Your hair looks thick and healthy. I like the length in #3 the best. I bet you could get a trendy cut that would look good straight AND worn natural. You do have a very nice curl pattern. I always thought the chin length bob Keira Knightly got for the Channel show 2 years ago was one of the most versatile chin length cuts ever.

    I agree with Carla. I like the look of #3 I think. It hits your jaw line at a nice place.

    I hear you on hair boredom! I like #3. Honestly, I like it long too. #5 is my least fav.

  • texstyle replied 10 years ago

    I like it long but think it could go even longer and curly/wavy. I also do like #3. I don't care for #5 so much.

    You have lovely hair. My favorite is #2. The layers give it a nice shape and I think they would work well curly or straight.

    That is natural curl in #4? Soft, curly gorgeousness!!! I would embrace that! I vote for a good shaping rather than a shearing!

    I think the shoulder kissing length is rather pretty --- but I would suggest a reshaping with someone who respects curly hair.  It's always easy to go shorter if you don't like it.

    Thanks for the feedback, everyone! 
    It seems to be a pretty even split. I might take Beth's approach. I'm not sure I've ever sat in a salon chair when it's styled like #4, because when you take a blow dryer to it, it'll straighten, but I seem to recall that those who work with curly hair do tend to cut it dry. 

    I like 5 well enough--that's about as short as I could manage (shorter around the face is too much). Looking at that photo again…man, I'm jet-lagged! I'm not sure I know what planet I'm on in that picture. :)
