How will I know if short hair would suit me. - January 1st 2015, 04:07 PM

Long story short, I've wanted my hair shorter for years. And now I want to have really short hair, but I don't know if it would suit me.
My sister said that I have a really round face and having short hair would make my face look fat and I would just look really ugly. But I really want short hair, kind of like in some of these pictures

This is one of the most recent pictures of me: http://instagram.com/p/wRWA_wkLDN/

So basically do you think short hair would suit me? Because I need to know before I even try to convince my mum.

I think it would look good! You could try cutting it kinda short to start, and if you like that cut it shorter.

I have a round face and short hair (though not as short as those pictures, it's kind of jaw length, but that's because my hair is difficult and it wouldn't go well if it was shorter). It makes my face look less round and makes me look older, which is an achievement as I look about 10 years younger than I am. I think it would have a similar affect on you looking at your picture. Like the other poster said though, maybe you could try a more jaw length style first, apart from anything else it would make convincing your Mum a lot easier.

I think you would look fine with those hairstyles. Do what you feel is best and comfortable for you.

I personally think short hair will suit you. It actually depends on you. If you want to do it and are confident you will be comfortable carrying it off, you should do it, irrespective of what other people say. Personal comfort comes first. I like the idea of cutting it short a little and then deciding if you want to do it further.

I think that short hair looks good on women who have round faces. Just take a look at Ginnifer Goodwin. She has a round face and sports the short hair and it looks amazing on her! Click here!

I think maybe you should get it cut like a bob at first and then if you like it, keep going shorter. I used to be obsessed with the bob and I kept going shorter and shorter until I realized that it wasn't for me. Not to mention, if you don't like it you can always grow it back out - it is just hair.

I've been through hell and back and came out stronger than ever.
