OOTD: Short Hair + Fat Girl = Okay


You might be seeing double if you are reading this straight from my blog! I get really anxious to update my profile picture anytime I change my hair. Which is like every week! Let's just say that my hair scissors are getting dull. I have no patience for even thinking about growing my hair out and this is probably as close as it will get.


dress : target
cardigan : torrid
leggings : fashion bug
shoes : torrid
owl brooch : theory of cute
glasses : coastal


I went with an asymmetrical cut again, which totally floats my boat! I get both sides. Wavy and fluffy + short and sweet. I am just super happy to not have to pull back my hair with rubberbands and bobby pins. And don't ask me how my hair is still this bright! I wash it every day in hot water and don't do any of the tips and tricks. It is just staying put I guess!


This is the in-law's cat, Stella.


If you thought I would shut up about my hair already, you are wrong! Here is some other angles and even an animated gif so you can get the full view. My hair is sort of a structure of it's own, held up with hairspray, teasing and a little magic.


Spinning around, exorcist style:


P.S. The strange title of this post is to encourage the ladies that come to my blog looking for answers about if it is okay for plus size, large, chubby, curvy or fat women to have short hair or pixie cuts. I see what you google to find me!

your hair is adorable! And yes, I agree short hair looks good on girls of all sizes,  just rock it and let your confidence show! I LOVE your sweet owl pin. It's sooo sweet!

After seeing your super short fringe the other day I took the scissors to mine y'day after spending 2 months trying to grow it out, ha ha! I'm loving it though, it's kind of a relief I've had a fringe for like 20 years now! 

Loren Cline said...

I love your hair! I see fat girls with awesome short hair cuts all the time. I think the problem some of them make is that they don't quite go short enough. Yours is really awesome though.

Juliet said...

It's so BRIGHT! It's such a cute cut, looks lovely on you x

Eline Speeckaert said...

you are so adorable!!

Karin said...

I love your hair! :D I used to have a similar haircut myself, and coloured red. Not as intense red as yours though - my hair is too dark and I'm too lazy to bleach it and then colour it...

I actually have never seen a woman who doesn't look good in a pixie cut. It seem like a style that fit just about everyone :)

Faith said...

Love the asymmetrical cut! I just chopped off hair that went down to my butt (HUUUGE sigh of relief) and shaved the sides... I think an asymmetrical cut might be the next thing I do to it, this has been my inspiration. Yay for short hair!

evelynrose6 said...

First thing I saw when I looked at this pictures was your smile :) I had red hair for yearrrs but now im white blonde, it took some bleaching! love short hair, mines a werid half way point at the moment not long but not short! 
love your blog  :) 

Olivia said...

I so wish I could do this but my double chin bothers me oh so much.

Gina Carpellotti said...

I wish I lived near you, as I'd beg you to be my stylist! I LOVE your hair. 
I always thought that sporting a pixie cut well was more about the face (and the attitude) instead of the body. 

Celia Smith said...

What kind of product do you use in your hair?

janna foland said...

Your soooo cute!  I love your assymetrical hair.  I love that many of your styles is something I do or have done! :)  Yay...great minds and all!  Bwhahahaha!  Right now I have a bit of a buzzy cut.  Yep...its shaved down super short and its chocolate brown.  I'm also plus size and I love having super short hair, so spread the word sweet lady!!!  I'm a 14/16, and have even shorter than a pixie cut...and I work it!  Anyone can if I can!!! :) Hearts, Janna Lynn

Danielle said...

Oh my goodness, i was just gonna tell you how fuckin sweet your hair looks! I love that style on you so much, it's making me suuuper itchy to cut my hair, but then I see my/your :) brooch, you always give me the sweetest surprises<3

Amy said...

You're really inspiring! I adore you! <3
Be proud of yourself!
You look great and I love your style and your self-confidence! :)

But please don't the word "fat". That sounds demoting.
You're a really nice person! :)
Be proud!

Your new follower,
Lily. :)

Have a nice day!

Liliana Wolf said...

 Oh... I forgot a word. :D
I mean: But please don't USE the word "fat".

Sorry! My fault.

mari said...

love it as always.  I want to do an assymetrical cut in the fall. I just got a cut, and told my girl and she tried to convince me to do it for my wedding, but the thought of even that much hair touching me during the hottest part of the year is... not desirable.  So come October, I totally plan to rock it.

Kellee said...

I love it!! The colour is wicked too! :) Short hair can go so wrong no matter what size you are.  I am one of those people that hasn't been able to figure out how to rock it, so I tend to stick to long and curly! You, however, look absolutely fabulous!! I wish I knew more about hair dying / cutting... it opens up a whole new world of expression and creativity! Keep on rockin' it cutie pie! xo

Danielle Leal said...

Your red hair is gorgeous!!! I love the cut of it! I wish I had the nerve to chop my hair off! I just can't bring myself to do it! Looking beautiful as always!

Emily Baker said...

man, i wish that my hair would stay the color i want it to be!!! i wash my hair every 3-4 days and it still fades A LOT 

Stacey said...

I love your pixie cut! I suits you so nicely - I wish my hair would stay as bright as yours though! Very cute outfit. I am totally in envy of your little owl brooch.

Alexandria Sherman said...

I adore the broach you are wearing! Your hair is looking rather gorgeous too, I'm also a member of the short hair sisterhood so I love to see cute crops, and yours are always the cutest!

Alicia A said...

For those of us who are fat, using the word fat means nothing more to us than using the word the or and. I always tell people I'm fat, happy, and a I love my life. We're not demoting ourselves we're describing ourselves and we're not ashamed.

Kait said...

I love your hair- the cut, the color- looks so great on you!!

I love the color!! :-) Very cool hair. And I'm jealous of that cardigan. It's awesome and soft looking. 

Sarah said...

where did you get those cat eye glasses, LOVE!!!

Kathy Knowles Konop said...

I love your hair and I did find your blog looking for pictures of fat girls with short cuts. :) I am getting my hair cut this week and love this cut! Is there any way to get the spinning gifs pictures separately so I can take it to the stylists with me? Great blog!!

jessica said...

hey- your hair looks so cute. I saw that you cut it yourself. Do you have any tips? I have asymmetrical hair which is 3in on one side and the back and the other side is a few inches past chin length. For the shorter part of your hair, do you have it all one length or is it longer on the top? -jessica

Robin Rebecca Lintz said...

I love your blog. You've got wit out the wazoo and I think you're awesome.

fat-short-me said...

Now I'm madly in love with you, just like everybody else. And your hair is amazing!
