Fat Girls Can Have Short Hair Too


I don't know how you girls do it with the long hair! I have been cutting my hair short since high school. I can't take hairs on my face and on my neck. I get tired of blow drying and straightening and all that back breaking work that comes with thick hair. I am more comfortable with shorter hair and I love the way it looks. It gives me confidence! In my googling of short hair, I have ran across plenty of articles that say bigger girls should stay away from short hair. That somehow longer hair will flatter any plus sized lady. I think we are all different, big or small and so is what will flatter our figure! I also do crazy things like wear skinny jeans and horizontal stripes and I think they all suit me. I have never been the type of person that follows the rules. I think if it makes you feel beautiful and confident, then go for it! For me, that is the short pixie cut. People tell me that I wear it well and I agree!

I love this! and i love your attitude!... being a fluffy lady myself, i would never think i could pull this hair off... i had it years ago when i didn't give a shit what anyone thought.. i need to go back to that.. not caring, that is!

i love it, looks so good!

Crystal said...

Love love love it!! I wish I could wear my hair short, it just doesnt look right :( I completely agree though that it has nothing to do with weight, I ran across that alot when I was looking too and didn't quite get it. Anyways, it looks awesome!

Rachele said...

Thank you! I would much rather love what I've got than worrying about making other people happy. Not caring is the best way to care for yourself!

Claire said...

I LOVE it! You look fabulous. You really suit short hair! I took inspiration from your short cut the last time you had it to have mine cut in a similar style just before Christmas and now I've kept it like that!

I also like to stick two fingers up at the "fat girl rules"!

Danielle Leal said...

I love your short hair! It looks beautiful on you! And you are gorgeous! I'm a curvy girl myself and I have never tried short short hair. It's not that I think it would make me look bad its just that I haven't gotten enough courage to go that route. Maybe someday I will. It'll all grow back eventually.
i too wear skinny jeans. Nothing wrong with that. It could be worse.

Cute cute cute!!! Short short hair does suit you very well and it maximizes your adorableness! I am with you, I prefer shorter hair to longer hair on most women. Long hair is definitely pretty too, but shorter is sassy and confident. I have too been through the cycle of cutting it short and then wanting to let it grow, then chopping it off again. I have never gone as short as your hair, but as soon as I chop mine off again to chin length I suddenly feel relieved. I tend to feel that the longer hair starts to drag my face down...

I think you look great with short hair. I hate when these so called style guru's decide for us what looks good. I think it is all what makes your feel good. It looks great!

Carol Hughes said...

Its lovely! I have long hair because I like to hide behind it...thats the basic reason! I'd love to have a firece short do but I don't think i'm brave enough!! *thumbs up*

Sarah said...

Yay! Look at your pretty new hair!! I love it! Bah to all those fashion know-it-all types. I totally agree that you should dress to suit yourself. Confidence is what really makes people feel and look good.

Liz said...

Okay. Your haircut is AWESOME. I don't think I could pull it off, but you pull it off WONDERFULLY. Seriously. And you cut it yourself? Why is everybody talented but me?!?!
GAH
Well, anyway, looks great!!

Katy said...

Ive just found your blog and its lush, i love owls big time, im a plus size and love your hair looks wicked, i wish i could pull it off like you, and OMG you cut it yourself i think i would seriously mess it up lol. Come see my blog if you like http://katy-itsmyworld.blogspot.com/ not as cool as yours though.

Much Love Katy xx

Coralene said...

It looks so nice! I love it. Also, I recently discovered Avenue... a guy I work with introduced me to it because he buys most of his heels there. They have the best sales!

janna lynn said...

Ha ha..your so right, great minds! I too have always had short hair, every time I even think of growing it out, I am reminded why I love short hair. I agree with you on how people need to stop saying plus sized ladies should grow out there hair (do they think we should stay indoors 24/7 and only wear moo moo's too?). I think my hair looks best short, and it de-emphasizes my double chin (which I had when I was smaller even) and my muffin top on the back of my neck. :) I adore your hair...very, very nice! :) Hearts, Janna Lynn

Rachele said...

I fixed my muffin neck with a tattoo :) No more crease!

P.S. Thank you! <3

Rachele said...

Haha that's awesome. Avenue has some cute stuff sometimes!

Rachele said...

Aw thank you sweetie! Thanks for visiting my blog...I will check out yours too.

P.S. I love the way you talk, it is so cute :)

Rachele said...

Yep, all by myself. I have doing it since high school and I think I have gone to the salon maybe 3 times in the last 10 years and I hated it every time!

Rachele said...

Thank you! I am sooo much happier!

Rachele said...

You would be surprised how much more confidence it can give you. And it is much easier to do for lazy people like me.

Rachele said...

You definitely have to take what they say with a grain of salt for sure.

Rachele said...

I agree. I feel shlumpy and dragged down with longer hair.

Rachele said...

Thanks hon! Your long hair looks very pretty on you.

Rachele said...

Thank you sweetie! Glad to have inspired you because you are adorable.

Rachele said...

Thank you!

Elizabeth ♥ said...

I love your work outfit, and your hair looks ravishing! i am in love with this cut, although i wont be able to pull it off as good as you do :]

Stefanie Stokes said...

I must admit I love short hair myself. I sometimes want to grow it out but it's so much hassle. I will do it sometime though even if just to get it dreadlocked lol :D

Jessica Pallow said...

I so want to move to seattle! and i love your style and your tattoos!!! : )

Daniellerose-smith said...

You do wear it well lovely! I have long hair on top and an undercut :] Strange but i like it.

Jenny Grabert said...

Thank you, thank you, thank you! I have been searching and searching for some sign that it is okay for me to cut my hair short! Right now it's in a shorter bob, but I still have a lot of length in front, it's just cut right to my neck in the back. Everyone loves this haircut, but it's always in my eyes while working out and I've had it for almost 2 years, it is time for a change! I love your cut and your face is built the same way mine is, I know I can pull this off now, thanks again! :)

Jodie said...

 THANK YOU!!!  You are beautiful!  I have been searching for a good cut for my face.  Yep, plus size girls can do short hair!!  I'm sick of being frustrated by my boring hair.  I need a change!!  I'm so glad I found this post tonight.  Calling the stylist tomorrow!

Dana Clark-Scott said...

I've wanted to try this cut for SO LONG, but was convinced it would look horrid on my face... however, your face is similar to mine in shape and fullness and you look AMAZING. 

I think I'm going to take the plunge! Thanks for the inspiration!

Sydney said...

So... I've always had hair at least down to my shoulders, but I've wanted to do something different for awhile now (short), but couldn't bring myself to do it because of my figure, I'm... Curvy, we'll say. But you have inspired me to branch out and take a risk, and let me tell you, I haven't been more happy with my hair... EVER! Thank you! 

Rachele said...

That is wonderful!

Rachele said...

Thank you! I hope you enjoy having short hair as much as I have. I would love to see photos if you take the plunge :)

Rachele said...

You're welcome! Short hair is the best :)

Rachele said...

You're welcome! Don't let anybody tell you what you can and can't do. It is all about how you feel!

Disneyfan3309 said...

I love your hairstyle. I plan on copying it. I hope thats ok! I am so glad I stumbled upon your blog!! Thanks so much!! Im too scared to cut it myself so if you dont mind I am going to take these pictures to the hair salon and get them to do it. So I am asking for permission from you for the pictures. Is that ok?

Love a pixie cut! My best friend cut mine into a pixie the day after we saw our first Ani Difranco concert. That was... 15 years ago now, I think. I've grown it out a few times, and hated it every time. I have very fine hair, and a big round face, and that's a bad combo for long hair. Short frames my face much better.

There's rarely if ever good fashion advice for non-tiny people. It's all focused on how to look smaller. Ef that!

Love your hair. <3

Rachele said...

Of course! But I think you already did it ;)

Rachele said...

Me too! I have totally gone through the cycles and then...back to the pixie. Thank you dear!

Coley said...

You are too cute!! Adore your style! I totally want to copy your hair, if it's cool with you?
Big grrls rawk!

Sandy said...

You go girl!  I've had short hair since I was 17.  I'm going to be 41 this year.  I don't let anyone's opinion bother me.  I think larger girls look better with shorter hair because we usually have larger faces.  Love your style.

Katehalfpenny said...

I love how confident you are, and you look absolutely great with your hair! I want to go short and funky, but I AM very worried that due to putting on some weight recently it'll look awful with my face shape. I've had everything from hair to my waist to shaved up the back of my head, but I was a lot slimmer then =/ what should I do?! my hair's currently shoulder length and postbox red! xx

Anne said...

All of those rules make me laugh, if we aren't supposed to wear skinny jeans, why does every plus size outfitter make them? I love your attitude, I had short hair for 10 years, I grew it out to my shoulders and no one compliments me on my hair anymore.  I got tons when I had a pixie.

I have short hair now but I want to go really short but old if I would look good. When I saw your pick u look really good with short hair, I am not too big but I am on the heavier side should I just say F it and cut it short??

Siti Sidek said...

Love you hair!!! I have very frizzy (and Asian! hair), I don't think I will get the same effect if I were to get a pixie cut. And i have a double chin too - sigh.

Meiko Udovich said...

You are a beauty! I wish I had the right shaped skull bone to do it t
oo!
