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!
