Here I am minus 14 inches of hair.



I really don't know how I feel about this yet. I keep having extreme emotions, I either super love or super hate it. I love that I can sit in a chair or lay in the bed without pinning myself down by my hair. I hate that I can no longer have gorgeous flowing curls that I've become known for. Everybody has said to me, "it will grow back" lol. Anyway....



(sorry I was playing with my phone camera app)







I'm having a hard time finding a way to style it that I like. It looks cute with a hat:




And I was also pretty stoked to discover that I can finally do this top knot thing that I always wanted to do but never could because I had way too much hair:




Any other ideas? I think curled up and pinned to one side will be cute. Pigtails are a a no go unfortunately, and no more side braid (I lived in a side braid for lazy hair days).

Jess! Honestly, it doesn't look much different to me. IDK, you were a beautiful girl and you are still one I know, 14 inches sound like whoah! But you hair is not that short now give it 2-3weeks, they will grow a little and you will feel different and more confident!

You look gorgeous Jess ! not like you didn't before of course. I'm not good at styling hair at all so no advice from me, but you look really cute w/ the hat on! Def don't look like you're trying to look young

ETA: you look like an actress in that pic ... I can't put my finger on who though ..

I love it Jess! I think you look gorgeous! You probably just need a little more time to get used to it. It looks super healthy! I love that last pic! Adorable!

I love it. You're just feeling the initial shock of cutting that much off, but it looks healthy/more lively at this length

I think it looks great! You can still have gorgeous curls! They would just need to start higher up. You could always get clip-in extensions for days you really miss long hair, too

OMG! You would be beautiful with a shaved head. Your hair is beautiful short and long. It's so thick and healthy looking right now. You remind me a little of Mila Kunis with your shorter hair.

I think it looks AWESOME! I'm totally jealous of thick locks: my hair is ridiculously thin. It looks amazing in that first pic and I love every subsequent photo as well. You're just so darn pretty!!!

Thank you so much ladies! I refused to let her put in any bangs or short layers, but now I'm thinking that it might need it. I made my next appt for 10 weeks out this time, so we'll see how I feel about it then . It's still such a shock when i get up in the morning.

I love it! You have such a pretty face! I was going to suggest getting long-ish side swept bangs. That might make a difference as far as styling options.
Either way, I think the cut is gorgeous and suits you well!

I think the hair cut looks cute on you. I'm really loving the look with the hat and the glasses. Where did you get your glasses from? I want me a pair

Your face is so pretty Jess! I think you look really cute. It's not that short anyways & if you liked your longer hair better, all you have to do is wait 1 year for it to grow back! Your hair grows so fast.
You look great

For some reasons Mila Kunis, Vanessa Hudgens and Selena Gomez look the same to me.. I don't know who they are and who is who And I don't agree Jess looks like either of them i.e. Mila Jess looks much more exotic

I think it suits you really well. I think you've just inspired me to cut mine off. I've been thinking about chopping off my hair (I want to donate it to Locks of Love) but the minimum to donate is 10 inches. If I cut off that much, my hair will be just a little below shoulder length so I think I'll wait a bit.

I love all three of your looks and agree with everyone else, that you are gorgeous

I would have loved to have been able to donate mine - unfortunately no one would have wanted that mess! lol. But yeah, I'll never be able to since they only take virgin hair and I'm addicted to color(and have to cover grey, ugh!)

Thanks again for the compliments ladies!! It is growing on me now. I can't believe how much less shampoo and conditioner I use...At least a fifth of the amount of conditioner

Also found another hair style that looks good. Curled with my clipless iron. With my regular iron with clip it looks stupid, so I was a little worried.

Jess, you are beautiful regardless of how short or long your hair is!!! I love that last hairstyle I think I'm going to buy one of those clip less curling irons. Which one do you use Jess?
