I must confess: I don’t have a Tumblr. I know, I know… lame. But here’s what happened. I had been thinking about going short for ages, but I was terrified about how I would look. I though my head would look like a beach ball, and this fear was not helped by the fact that the only short styles I could find on Pinterest or Google were on these teeny-tiny celebrities and models. Sure, we may both have the same face shape, but a skinny oval and chubby oval just look different. Then… then I got the guts to type what I really wanted to find. Fat girls like me with short hair like I wanted. Found the beautiful ladies here and got the courage to chop it off. I started with a shoulder-grazing bob that I LOVED, but the way my fine hair was cut made the ends split and frizz up after only two days. I went back to get it fixed (even MORE got chopped off!) and now I have an a-line bob. It’s not stacked in the back, just layered. I have straight hair, so I use a flat iron and sea salt spray to put in some wave and texture. Here’s the final result!
When I was younger people told me that I shouldn’t cut my hair, because I had a full face and people with slimmer faces look better with short hair. Well, one day I decided to prove them wrong after my mother told me that it was indeed the other way around. The people who look the best with short hair are girls with fuller faces (who tend to be big like me). It ended up being one of the few things I was proud of considering that after I cut my hair a bunch of other big girls took a crack at it too and we rocked our school! :D
Btw, my hair is shaved all around besides the top. Lol.
I did it! And all because of you beautiful ladies’ pictures. You helped me take the plunge. I carry a ton of weight in my face n neck and I was so scared that short hair would make it more pronounced. But i love it! I’m so glad I did it. No regrets FOSHO!
There’s the before. My hair is naturally curly but I often wear in waves or straight, and before I cut it, it was well past bust level. I cut off quite a bit!
In the salon! My hairdresser was so excited to be chopping so much hair. It’s not often someone comes in and wants a radical change.
In natural lighting. I’m 5’7” size 16 with an oval/long face with asymmetrical features. You can’t tell but it’s auburn on top and black under, but most of the black has been cut away. I love it! It’s so light and fancy!
I have no idea what’s going on with tumblr but everything I had is queue and in submissions doesn’t want to show up. It says I have X amount of submissions X amount in queue but nothing shows up. I’ve tried going on on a desktop and nothing. Please bare with me while I try to resolve this issue. I promise to update all of you on what’s going on.
All of these amazingly beautiful confident women on here are such a big inspiration! I'm 5"8' and almost 200 pounds and have been thinking about a pixie for a while, and I think I might after looking at you guys! You're all gorgeous!
Thank you for this! I just recently chopped my hair into a pixie and a guy told me to "stick with long hair" I kind of let it affect my confidence, but after reading through these posts I feel so much better about my decision! You lovely people are rocking the short hair! Fuck everyone who says you don't. :)
I’ve wanted to do this for sooo loong. It feels so good!
love my new hair!
I will never go back. 14 yrs of short and going strong. In college I had hair to my waist and one day I just decided I was done.
