Q: Hi Bill, thank you for your time, this is a Venezuelan girl asking for your help. I really, really want to cut my hair. But I have a round-shaped face, and I am scared that short hair won't suit me. I have an idea of the haircut that I want, but maybe you could tell me what's the best for me.
I have straight, long brown hair with Ombré. These pics are how I look now. I do like long hair, but I want something different. Thank you so so much! PS: Forgive my English. I tried to explain my points with all the English I know. — Natasha
A: Natasha, I like your hair long as well.
I would add a bang similar to this photo, perhaps a little wider to show off both eyes and cheekbones:
I also love this colour and it would be a great transition from your current look. This can be worn straight or waved.
Long layers would diffuse the weight of your hair and give you some added texture.
This is a do not… I really do not like this for you:
This will box in your face and do you no favours.
Leave your hair long regardless of whether you choose to bang or not to bang.
PS: Your English is just fine and perfectly clear with your requests.
