After cutting my hair short in fifth grade (and crying for hours after someone mistook me for a boy), I'm finally, at age twenty, ready to try short hair again. I'd like a style that's off my neck- not a boyish style, but definitely more extreme than a bob or something.
The problem is, EVERY SINGLE hair site I've seen has exactly two styles of short haircut- the ultra-straight sleek kind, and the ultra-fake-curler-ringlet kind. I've yet to see any styles online that would work with my hair, which is thick and semi-wavy. Here is a recent picture which shows what my hair is like.
I have occasionally seen people with my hair texture who had good-looking short cuts, but I can't exactly whip out my camera to photograph strangers' haircuts.
I do plan to ask the stylist for advice- I'm not going to just show her a picture and have her go to town- but I would like some idea of what's possible and what's not.
My only specific desires are that it be off the neck and that it not require straightening or blowdrying to look decent.
