The hair styles are gorgeous as long as you have good hair. My hair is curly and sometimes unmanageable. Enjoyed looking and dreaming.

carol7777: I'm glad you enjoyed this. Many people wish they had curly hair. Sometimes I wish I had it myself. Thanks for reading!

Voted up. You're right about exuding confidence.

(So, are you going for the chop, too?)

f: Thanks for voting! I did get my hair cut recently. It was closer to a bob shape than a pixie one.

Ebower, YW; well I see. Anyway, your hub is about short hair. Do you think you'll ever shorten your bob more?

I've had really short hair before and I liked it. I've never had a pixie cut, but I might try it someday.

Well, I see. Like you said, 'pixie cuts can be messy or sleek'; do you have a preference? So you have had really short hair and liked it; you seem like you're a confident person anyway, but you're right as well when you say: 'Short hair on women exudes confidence'. Maybe you'd not go as short as GI Jane, but maybe something like Annie Lennox instead? Of course, if you go like Annie Lennox or a pixie, it would expose your plugs completely, right? I guess it's all a question of gaining and retaining confidence.

f: No, I wouldn't ever shave my head. I let my stretched ears grow in. That's okay; I welcome any questions. I just may not always have time to reply to every comment right away.

Okay, ty. I don't think GI Jane's was completely shaved, anyway, just suitable for the army. Great hub, anyway. I guess your plugs soon won't fit, then, and it's back to earrings instead... Take care.

Cute collection of styles. I've only worn my hair very short once. That was an interesting experience. Fun, though.

Thanks! Really short hair is daring but definitely fun.

Like, for example, have you had yours as short as Michelle Williams's, above? so you think really short hair is daring and fun; would you call Michelle Williams's really short and daring?

Blessings.

Good hub on hair styles, indeed. I think it's interesting how you see a hairstyle, and you want it, but then you have to consider if you have the proper shaped face for it, or do you have thick hair, thin hair, etc. I do like how short hair is easier to manage when you're getting ready for work. Hair with attitude is what I generally like and most days, I put my hair up in a hair stick. I really liked all your images you included. My hair 's been long most of my life. I think it's great when someone can connect with a salon who actually knows what they're doing and can look at the shape of your face and know what will look good on you instead of just saying, "what do you want?" because what you want may not be right for your face.

ytsenoh: Yes, even though a haircut is trendy, it doesn't mean it will look good on you. You have to consider several factors first (as you described). Thanks for your insightful comment!
