I’m a seventeen year-old-male, and I’ve had longish hair since I was nine. Lately, I’ve been seriously considering changing to a short-hair style, as I am graduating from highschool, and I kinda feel like a change.
As for what I want to change to, well, I really have no idea. I know that I don’t want to spike my hair, and I don’t want to shave my head. I also don’t want anything that will take a lot of work to maintain. Other than that, I have no clue.
I’m scared it will look stupid on me, or it won’t fit my style, or something like that. As for what my style is, I’m not really sure. I’m fair skinned, I wear T-Shirts and jeans, I have a kinda big nose, etc. I’m generally not concerned with having a refined appearance, although I do try to take care of my appearance, if that makes any sense.
I suppose I’d want it to make me look good, but I don’t expect it to make me handsome. I guess I just don’t want it to make me look any worse than I already do.
I also have pretty unique hair, as I inherited it from my Native American ancestors, so the story goes. It is very dark brown and incredibly straight in that I can’t do a thing with it. It is very voluminous; someone once said it looked like Jennifer Aniston’s hair in the early years of Friends.
I’m posting this on the spur of the moment, and I don’t really have time to take pictures that showcase my hair, but I do have some recent pictures in my collection that give an idea of what my hair looks like presently:
If there is any interest in this, I could take the time to take some more pictures, but as of now I have no plans to.
It’s a pretty big deal to me, I guess, and I won’t do it without any good advice. If anyone has experience with this kinda stuff and can give me some ideas, that would be awesome. If not, I’d like to go to a stylist or something that would know what to do. Can I just go into any Super Cuts and ask for their help, or should I go to a full on salon for good advice? What kinda price should I be expecting if I go that route?
Thanks in advance for any help you guys can give me.
