Haircuts AFTER weight-loss success stories~Do you luv it or hate it&would u cut all your hair again?

NewLIFEstyle4MENewLIFEstyle4ME Posts: 3,999Member Member Posts: 3,999Member Member
This is a different kinda success story inquiry and thread. I've always had long hair all during my obesity and overweight times. Once I lost a substantial amount of weight, I got a substantial hairstyle/haircut to little longer than my neck-line bob and it's cute, but I'm REALLY tempted to get a...PIXIE CUT or super shorter bob, now that I'm pretty close at the weight I want/my goal weight. I've been looking at some youtube videos about pixie and short cuts and I'm finding the ladies look super CUTE, but many of them are not happy with the cuts and give a lot of pro's and con's about it. The truth of the matter is I'm kinda SCARED nervous unsure to get a super short cut and at the same time think I will look and feel nothing less than FABULOUS with a sassy short cut.

So...Have any of you got a super short cut once meeting your weight-blastification goal(s)? Are you glad you did OR not so much and super wanting to grow your hair out and will never do it again. I totally understand it's just hair and my hair grows pretty quickly too.

Did cutting your hair (getting a fabulous, perhaps even a bit edgy for you, and definitely stepping out of your "comfort zone" hair STYLE/cut) do something wonderful for you/your life/your style or did you regret it?

    A lot of it has to do with the shape of your face. I can't get away with pixie cuts because I have a rectangular face. If you have an oval, square or a circular face I believe those are best. Google it though, just to be sure. :)

    Oops. Guess I was wrong! Though they still don't have the rectangle..

    I went short and spiky and I love it. It suits me well and is really quick and easy to style - which is great as I go to the gym every day and have to wash it afterwards.

    Hair grows back!

    That's my motto. You get to live once. Try it! If you don't love it, then it will grow back.

    Short-short hair doesn't interest me (I like it long enough to do stuff with), but I've colored mine, cut mine, went blond. Went pink and purple. Went deep purple. Went rich, deep red (my natural is red/blonde).

    I've loved the coloring and hair cuts I've gotten, but I'm adventurous with my hair. Did it change my life? Nope, but for the time the color lasted, I felt fabulous! :smiley:

    Take a chance!

    Honey YES it does and I haven't colored my hair (because I LOVE my natural color and the gray is virtually non-existent--which is a miracle for my age), but what you've done and the colors you've chosen sounds AMAZING and FUN! Thanks so much for your encouraging reply!

    Wow and YAY YOU and I love the idea of it being really quick and easy to style as well. Thanks so very much for your reply!

    LOVE this--Thank you!!! When I was obese and overweight, my head/face was round. Now that I've got down to size, looking at these pics I'd say my face and head is either a combo of heart, long and/or oval...I'm getting all hyped up now and excited....YIKES and YAY at the same time!

    I got a pixie after I lost about 40 lbs and I loved it. I'd never felt confident enough for short hair, I tended to hide behind my hair so this was a huge deal for me. Along with the weight loss and the haircut, I found a love for fashion/style and so I felt totally transformed.

    My hair has been long again for a few years now and I've been feeling bored with it. I need a change of some sort but not sure what I want to do yet. I'm not sure if I want to go for a pixie again but it was a lot of fun and I'd highly recommend it :)

    Boom! This is EXACTLY how I felt (not being confident enough for short hair AND using long hair to "hide behind"). I am all the way confident now and that's one of the reasons I'm thinking about "taking the plunge" so to speak! Thank you ever so much for your encouraging reply!

    I know this is directed at females but I just buzzed my whole head. Took me a week to get used to it but now I like it . I have always had somewhat of a receding hairline but hid it with hair or a hat. This is freeing! the only thing I need to do is get a tan on the receding part and my big forehead haha

    I'm THRILLED that you've posted! I've seen some guys with some SUPER cute cuts/hairstyles and as I posted, I was super hoping guys would reply too. Thank you so much for your encouraging reply!

    I expected to see lots of photos here! Love the chart, though. Very helpful.

    I got mine super short after 25 pounds. Wonder what I'll do when I hit goal! 😗

    I concur on the lots of photos comments! I've loved all the colors I've chosen (I love my natural too, but hey, gotta see what it's like with other colors too!).

    That picture is cool too!

    YAY YOU Lynda! Maybe color? Because I really really love my natural color so much--always have, the idea of coloring my hair NEVER enter into my mind until posting this. So yeah, WOW...
    {{ B) wide-eyed smiling from ear to ear :D }} with even the "thought" of coloring my hair! This thread is somehow making me feel younger and sassier for some reason, I LOVE IT!

    Go for it, it'll grow back.

    Also, try googling unicorn hair and be inspired by the beautiful colours.

    I agree that hair grows back.
    I have cut my hair 5 times for locks of love. I cut 27 inches the last time.
    I love my hair super short in the summer. Sometimes I swim 2x a day, which means washing my hair 3x a day. So easy to just comb it and go—let it dry naturally with a pixie cut.
    I definitely say cut it! I bet you’ll love it, too.

    WOW!!!! I googled it and saw some super cute and interesting and WOW styles and colors. I've never colored my hair nor had highlights or anything. I remember in the 1960's and a lot of older women used to color their hair light blue and different colors to cover the gray...like this old ad:

    I even see some young people coloring their hair gray and it looks kinda good too. How exciting. Thanks for having me google that! I also googled "hair colors for short cuts" and saw some cute stuff too!

    I appreciate you adding about swimming, which I'm starting to take up--that's another big ole PLUS for the "no guts no glory" move to doing it. Thank you!

    I went from really long hair to really short hair once. It looked great. I have an oval face and my hair was blond. I was really cute and easy to take care of. It also made me feel more confident. I think you should go for it.
