  • You can cut it shorter. I recently cut off over 14 inches of length and Im LOVING short hair. Mine has always been really long. It was always in a pony tail or bun.

  • Wear it down? Pull it into a high, tight pony and gel/spray the top down smooth but leave the pony long and curly.

  • I cut 15 inches off of mine at one time. It wasn't "short" but was much shorter than what I'm used to. I didn't like it at that length, but ended up loving it in between where it had been and where I cut it to. I now wear it a couple inches past my shoulders with long layers. I don't do anything to it - at all! No blow dryer, no curling iron, no straightener. But I'm fortunate I have curly thick hair and most people think I spend a lot of time on it.

  • I know what you mean about not feeling yourself with short hair.

    If you can French braid, a loosely done braid down the center is quick and pretty for long curly hair. :-)

  • I would do a scrunch and go look for a quick easy style.. just put a little mouse in, and scrunch and go (or use a difuser if you blow dry).
    it's quick and easy, but allows you to wear it down.

    If your not a fan of the curls, invest in a good straightener.. it use to take me an half an hour to do it, when they first came out with a crappy one, but a good one I have it cut down to 5 minutes.

  • you can also do a quick rolling technique before bed and come out with cute loose curly hair..

    try some bangs, some side sweep bangs with loose curls is hot right now as well.

  • I have the same kind of hair and yeah, cutting it isn't an option. I usually wear it down or pulled halfway up with the tie in the middle of the back of my head, or a low ponytail with the tie a bit off center and pulled over one shoulder. You might also try a high ponytail with a cute little bump held in with pins.

    Also try washing your hair at night, rinsing it upside down so the curl doesn't get pulled out with the water. When you sleep on wet hair down it 1. can't really make you sick and 2. usually bunches up the curl so when you wake up the curls are amazing and natural.

  • I watched tons of youtube videos and one day I went and got my long hair cut into a aline bob. I loved it. If you dont want to go short..then I would maybe for the for the long aline bob. some layers in the back.. it would definitely be cooler in the summer. Take care!
