    Posted: February 17 2007 at 3:26pm

I need some help! I cut my hair about a month ago. I am loving it short... but I think I want to go shorter. Or should I let it grow again? I don't have the best picture of my hair short.. I also think it makes me look like a 10 year old with it short. But it's so much easier to fix and manage short. What do you think? I am thinking I want it cut a lot shorter in the back, similar to Posh Spice. I think it's called a stacked bob? Let me know what you think I should do and feel free to post some pics of suggestions!! I appreciate your help!!

All the pics are basically the same style - just a diff. in length.
I think the stacked bob would be a good idea - probably about chin length or a little longer.  I would also go shorter with the bangs - you could still get them cut to blend into the sides.
You don't look like a 10 yr. old boy in any of your pics!

I Would do it with out a doubt. You have the neck line for a stacked / gradiated bob. Have your stylist take it short in the nape and blend the side into it. The bangs are fine. Leave length to tuck behind the ears if desierd. You will look greater!!!!!

Of these 3 pictures I think the first one fits your personality best and I also think it looks the best as well. The simple bob in the 3rd picture just doesn't seem to fit your image at all.
 
I see you with more of a fun hairstyle that has alot of flair and a more daring style that you could easily pull off. Something like this....
 
Although your hair does look great long but a style like I've just posted would look great too and you could pull it off.
 
You definately want something that shows texture in the hair.....it would suit you well.

I agree with mikecuts suggestion; I too think that you'll look awesome with a graduated bob.

I agree go for the Pob (Posh Bob).
 
Short at the back and stack it high.  I think you will look younger with it shorter Wink

Here's a great site for inverted bobs:
 
 
After the page loads, scroll down towards the bottom, click on the big rectangle, wait for the images to load and then click on a style on the left to display in the middle.  The bad thing about this site is that I haven't figured out how to download the pictures but there are numerous variations.  I think there are a total of four galleries.  Have fun!!!  Let us know what you decide.

Thanks for all of your suggestions! I'm trying to find the perfect picture, and then I'll get my appt. Here are some I found on the internet that I like:
 
#1
I really like this one a lot! Just kinda hard to see the back since her hair is darker.
 
#2
Here's the back of another cut I found.. I don't like how thick it looks though.
 
I really need a good picture of the BACK VIEW.. hard to find! Let me know what yall think!

What's up...I think you would look great with the type of style that Victoria Beckham has, you already look hot with your current style but could totally pull this look off.  Let me know what you think.

Lemonlime,

This cut would look wonderfull on you. Have a look at the link it's worth it. Just have the sides cut to blend into your bangs if they are not that  long. I would not have the bangs cut any shorter than needed. I still love the tuck behind the ears. If not you will have them in your eyes all the time. You have nice facial features. Don't hide them. Keep me posted.
Mike

i honestly think that short hair would not suit you at all i think it would look great if you had your hair like in the 2nd pic. Youre reall pretty, you could pull it of perfectly

Curlyred,
Natural curly hair is easier to cut but care should be taken not to hold too much tension on the hair when cutting. It also is easier to hide mistakes! Poker straight hair needs to be perfect in the lines desired. I can't say that this is not taught in schools today. I would just be very positive and reinforce the style that you wish. Not knowing your length it's hard to say how to cut and style it. Maybe a picture or let us know more about it.
Mike
