Chopping off my hair!

I've had it with my hair! I'm going through the postpartum shed and it's way too hot here anyway. I want SHORT hair but don't want to look ridiculous doing it.

My problem, I'm overweight (that might be understating it) and I have a round face. Anyone know of a real short hair cut that would look decent?

I'm not looking for movie star just something that will not make me look mannish and/or fatter :)

Google is apparently not my friend or fat people with short hair don't like their picture taken, either way I'm looking for suggestions from you, oh anonymous masses of cafe mom :)

Feel free to check out my profile picture if you want to know what I look like :)

Thanks for your help!

  • We are in the same boat...I AM cuting mine at the beginning of Sept. Since I JUST trimmed it Bill said I had to wait. But I am going SHORT and cant wait!!! I think you'd look cute with a bob too!!! Maybe a little stacking in the back where it is a little longer in front.

  • A nice a line bob(not too short past chin length mid neck) with some short layers around ur face will give it more shape.

  • Thanks, I've considered a bob but it's been many years since I last had one :)

  • The first thing that came to my mind was a cute bob too! Good luck!

  • With your hair, you'd look cute with any hair cut. I cut my short. It's naturally curly and layered. Bob would look cute...what about feathering?

  • I once had a shag that looked pretty good. Maybe if I just shorten it :) Thanks ladies!
