... and want to bring in a pic to show my hairdresser what I want.<br>
Except I'm not sure what that is yet.<br><br>
My hair looks sort of like <a href="http://www.virtueelkapsel.com/celebrity_hairstyle.asp?name=Milla+Jovovich" target="_blank">the top picture</a> but grown out 3 months too many, so pretty messy and overly thick (think triangle-ish).<br><br>
I have never been able to deal properly with my hair. It's neither straight nor curly, and it's not cute wavy - it just looks like I don't take care of it, even if I do try. I should mention I hate products, even though I've tried expensive and cheap ones. I just don't like them.<br><br>
I have gone quite short before, with varying degrees of success.<br><br>
I need something very very easy <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"> and very low/no maintenance <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"><br><br>
Any suggestions with pics??? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I went from shoulder length hair to this<a href="http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pid=3814991&l=26de085be9&id=503353584" target="_blank">http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pi...9&id=503353584</a> in March, but it requires a bit of styling product.<br><br>
What about something like <a href="http://www.peta2.com/OUTTHERE/page/240-sevyveg-natalie.jpg" target="_blank">this?</a> It looks like it should take much of anything, and you could probably get away with just blow drying it.

I love it! I want something like that, but my giant head and round cheeks beg to differ <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">.

I cut all my hair off, and I loooove it. It's maybe an inch and a half long. I do use styling product though, just a little gob of Rough & Ready by Sexy Hair. It's like glue, I go against one of my cowlicks, so I have to use something strong. It takes less than five minutes to style my hair, and I can do it without having to dry my hair.<br><br>
I need to go find a good pic of my hair....<br><br>

It looks great on you! I'd love to cut my hair that short, but I don't have the guts to do it (says the lady with neon pink hair <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">)

Do it!! It'll grow back, it's just hair <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
I was so sick of my hair, it all had to go. I'm so happy with it, no more blow drying, straightening, curling, ponytails, all of that stuff. It's great, especially when DD only gives me a few minutes in the bathroom by myself. I can just glob up my hair, wash my hands and get going.

I LOVE it, it looks great on you!<br>
Do you think it works without product? I don't like the feel of it in my hair.<br>
I also think I might need to re-pierce my ears, or wear a bit of makeup with a haircut like that, because you are really front and center, if that makes any sense.<br><br>
I also like <a href="http://www.fashionising.com/hair/b--Carey-Mulligan-inspiration-for-elegant-short-hair-2880.html" target="_blank">this</a> ... I'm a little nervous about going ALL the way short. I've done it before and loved it, but done it before and thought I looked too masculine.<br><br>
ETA Logan's mommy the pink looks great!

<b>YES!!!</b> This was the movie I fell inlove with her hair in!!! And what I had in mind when I started going super short. I will go back to it one day, prolly when I hit 40 or something. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
OP, My hair is also not curly, nor straight, but very stringy and just unkempt looking unless I blow dry or curling iron. If I dont feel like doing my hair, it HAS to go up, or else I look like a strung out rat.

I have always wanted a hair cut like those.. but I have super thick super straight hair and I am just afraid I won't be able to pull it off.

I'm doing mine on Saturday. Mine is currently crazy wavy/curly/out of control christmas tree shaped hair down to my mid-back. It's going be about a half inch long all around when I'm done.<br><br>
Go for it!

I LOVE short hair, have cut mine pixie a few times, but I am currently growing it out. I really want something EASIER! I love how short hair looks, but it is so hard to keep up! I have to use product to keep it looking good, then I can't sleep with product in because I break out, so I have to wash it at night, which cause the bushy hair effect, lol. Then start over again in the morning. Its just gotten to be too much!<br>
Just wanted to let you know it can be a pain!

Without product, my hair is just fluffy looking and weird. But, I think with the right cut and length, it would work. Just not with my hair type....stubborn!! haha<br><br>
I do love my product. Makes my hair nice and solid <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> I love being able to drive with the windows down and not worry about my hair going everywhere.<br><br>
I also don't wear much makeup, unless it's a special occasion or I feel like playing with my face. Same with the earrings, unless I feel like wearing them, then I do. Otherwise, I am a plain jane. The only jewelry I wear daily is a necklace.<br><br>
BugaBoo and ps4624- Thanks <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
