I love it... it's just so damn hard (and expensive) to maintain.
the curse of short hair.

I your haircut! I know what you mean about so expensive to maintain; every 4-6 months I have to get a trim to maintain my hairstyle.

AGHCK. my hair is in an eternal 'pixie - bob - pixie - bob' cycle and i need to stop myself from looking at things like this when it's getting into the 'bob/long' phase, because i just want to chop it off again it's chin length now and i'm quite fond of it, but i just love short hair so much.

i used to model for toni and guy and they did any number of insane (but cute!) asymmetrical things with weird pink highlights to my hair:






i'll spare you the rest and avoid posting images, but for contrast, with long hair:

http://c4.ac-images.myspacecdn.com/i...ca09785183.jpg (this gets questioned CONSTANTLY)
http://b6.ac-images.myspacecdn.com/0...50613026_l.jpg
http://c3.ac-images.myspacecdn.com/i...765fa85916.jpg

phew. that's enough. but worrying about this just TAKES UP SO MUCH OF MY TIME

new crop. ugh. i think I might be a snipsnip-addict.
this time I decided to dye it blonde too. winter is taking it's toll, and I thought I'd need a little pick-me-up.
this did it

great thread! i just recently cut my hair into a bob as a stepping stone toward a pixie cut. my mother thinks that since my hair is coarse and thick, it won't look good in a super short cut :-/

I've had short hair for 5 years now and I cannot ever imagine having long hair.It's so much easier and cooler(where I live is so humid).

dee -- my hair is pin straight and won't hold a curl, ridiculously thick (both in number of hairs and each actual hair), and really coarse/stiff/dry/hurts if you poke yourself in the eye with it. you can do short cuts, you just need to do short cuts that go along with 'super straight pokey hair'. razoring or channel-cutting the hell out of it is necessary to collapse it, and also, uh, not washing it often helps a LOT with control + texture. just avoid anything wispy + romantic as it won't work -- blocky/piecey/messy will work fine. a pixie with heavier bangs you can comb a lot of product for, or cropped extremely short in the back (like an a-line) will also work well. undercuts (a la kate lanphear, alice dellal, et) also work well but may be a bit more extreme than you want to go.

maintenance + growing it out will be a b*tch because it will get really 'poufy' quickly but most places will charge you just a little bit to go in for a 'bang trim' every 2-3 weeks to get the weight razored out again overall for me it's way better than long, because long i need to flat-iron it constantly -- not to make it straight, but to make it flatter and smoother.
