The Chop

So I'm considering cutting my hair short, as in shorter than a bob short. This would be the shortest I've ever had my hair since my bowl cut of 1983 (which I must say has stood the test of time, well done mom). So I type in short hair pics to pinterest and find a link where the first five pics include, katie couric, jane fonda and sharon stone. yikes I was not off to a great start. I have a sinking suspicion that short hair won't look great on me but I want to give it a try before it looks like I'm sporting the q-tip look beloved by elderly women everywhere.
In the off chance that anyone reads this blog and wants to have an impact on your friend and or family members hair, let me know which of the following choices you prefer (if you prefer I not cut my hair don't tell me that as it will most likely make me want to cut it all the more, as Cameron has sadly discovered).

'A' looks more natural, but I think 'B' would look awesome on you. 'B' looks like it would be a ton of work to style, though. I have a friend in Seattle who chopped off her hair, and then cut it even shorter later, and it has all looked great and not q-tip-y (she's like 4 years older than we are). It gives an essence of, "I'm a woman, not a girl." And it will always grow back, and bobby-pins will be your best friend during that process :) I'm excited to see what you choose!

The first photo seems like it would be most manageable and provide more opportunities for a good hair day. I cut my hair really short like this after Mia was born. It was thrilling and I liked looking different than most women my age. Here's another shape you could consider: http://imgbp.hotp.jp/CSP/IMG_SRC/25/99/B002982599/B002982599_271-361.jpg
