I am competely unable to style my own hair, in addition to having a phobia of the blowdryer.

At the moment, my hair is supposed to look like http://www20.brinkster.com/fflyer/cam******.html - this . That's right after I last had it cut, and I've never been able to make it look that nice. It turns out like this big blob of, well, hair. The point is, I cannot style and do not want to style my hair. I just wear it in a ponytail everyday. I want a hair cut which is wash-and-go, and can survive being slept in, because I shower at night.

I'd really like some sort of uber-short cut, but I'm not sure how my hair would take it. I'm wondering if, without the weight to keep it down, it would all just fly up and form (dun dun dun) the white girl's fro. Something along the lines of http://www.edwardwadsworth.com/html/hair_style_16.html - this would be great. My hair is not particularly thin or thick, but it's prone to frizz.

So, to make this a bit clearer: if I cut my hair short, will it a) totally frizz up, b) be hard to style, c) just look generally awful, or d) look nicer than the ponytail which I wear every day?

Thank you. :)

Er, sorry about that. Apparently my first link was censored. How embarassing! Anyway, the picture is right here at http://www20.brinkster.com/fflyer/images/xli.gif - http://www20.brinkster.com/fflyer/images/xli.gif . I'm not sure if that will work, though, because Brinkster doesn't allow for direct linking or... something.

What's wrong with frizzy short hair?
If you cut it short enough it shouldn't matter anyway.

If your hair is naturally super-curly, I'm afraid being cut very short would probably make the curls tighten up. If you got it cut to like an inch or less, it would be short enough to not look too out of control and it would be very easy to deal with, though I dunno if you're willing to take it that far or not.

More awesome than a manatee!
