Would You? Cropped Hair

The long, wavy locks trend of the past few years is beginning to take a turn for the shorter.  Many women are going for a shoulder length bob, like Giuliana Rancic debuted at the Oscars last Sunday.  Karlie Kloss is another who recently went for the big trim, shearing off several inches.

A shoulder, or chin, length bob is the cut of the moment.  Flattering, feminine and fresh.  But would you go shorter and crop your hair à la Charlize?  Theron says it is very liberating to take it all off, and she does look amazing.  This is a big step, but these ease of maintenance and freedom-factor are very appealing.

We’d love for you to weigh in on this…to crop or not?  Would you go super short?  If you did, would you feel the need to wear more makeup?  Or could you still pull off the bare face?  Do you have short hair now?  Do you love it?
