To Grow or To Chop???

posted by on 2012.01.24, under Chriselle Inc.

As you guys know i’ve been “trying” to grow out my hair for quite some time now..but after nostalgically looking back at some old photos I couldnt help but have a sudden urge to chop off all my locks again! Along the long process of growing out my hair I have learned to love & embrace my {slightly} awkward  length curls and bedhead….

I cant help but miss my sleek, short, and easy to manage bob (as seen below)

So I need your help guys…….should I continue to grow out my locks or should I chop em ends off?? hmmmmm….. HELP!




Chop’ em dear bu t not so much.
You look great but your hair is way too long. Keep them shorter and a bit wavy. Just like a few months ago :)
You are pretty, not much hair is needed.

i think you should keep it.
you look very romantic with this curly and longer hair and your bubbly and happy personality comes out more.

I think a bit longer hair softens your face. So I say: grow!

Milja ( February 4, 2012 at 2:21 PM )

oh my gosh, I can’t stop smilling and feel really happy for you I can imagine how happy you are at the moment. When is the exact date that Neeraj will come to US ? It’s like a dream comes true … I can imagine that how long you have been waiting for this I am really really happy for you …

Grow !

Grow it Chriselle!!!

Daria ( February 3, 2012 at 2:17 AM )

I think it looks great the way it is now!

Maura ( February 1, 2012 at 11:52 AM )

Grow it for the wedding. You want to do something with your hair for it. Then after you can cut it. You look beautiful either way though.

Emma ( January 31, 2012 at 7:11 PM )

Personally I love the “bed head” – it has a definite Cali-chic vibe to it that makes your outfits seem effortless

CourtneyOutLoud ( January 31, 2012 at 10:32 AM )

I like it short!

ANNIE ( January 31, 2012 at 12:40 AM )

Ive been searching for a perfect pic of u with ur curls cuz i wanna do the same thing to mine. I love ur current hair very much. Dont chop it off please. And could u sen me a pic of ur hair so i can ahow it to my stylist pretty please!!!!!??!!ill appriciate. Thanks.

QT ( January 30, 2012 at 10:47 AM )

I love your hair as it is now, this length works best for you, in least in my unprofessional opinion ;)

Anonymous ( January 29, 2012 at 3:00 PM )

I like it best the way it is right now. It gives you a more friendly and approachable look :)

Romy ( January 29, 2012 at 1:22 PM )

I’m having this exact problem too! Except my hair’s about almost halfway down my back. I love my long hair so much! But sometimes it just gets in the way. There are some days where I wake up and just want to chop it all off!
I like your hair the way it is :) Try to see if you can grow it out some more!

Stephanie ( January 28, 2012 at 9:22 PM )

I think how your hair looks now is completely perfect. Short and wild enough for boho looks, long enough to pin up for a classy look. Not many women can pull off this look, so you should embrace it because you can!. Keep the medium bob! No longer, no shorter!

Amy ( January 28, 2012 at 6:22 PM )

Dear Chriselle,

keep the long look. Looks so natural and boho, downtoearth.

sabina ( January 28, 2012 at 1:28 PM )

Keep them the way it is! The bedhead is stunningly chic, and as great as the short hair is, it seems a bit too 30-year old momm-ish for you.

Lauren ( January 28, 2012 at 12:46 PM )

you truly look amazing with both haircuts, you rock either look.
but i say keep it growing, if you end up wanting to cut it, you can. you cant glue back your hair if you regret cutting it.

Priscilla ( January 28, 2012 at 10:00 AM )

I love your hair the way it is now. It’s so relaxed and summery/beachy looking.

interpoint ( January 28, 2012 at 2:57 AM )

I really like your hair now! I love the messy bedhead curls you have, it looks so effortless. I think you should grow it out for a while and wait until it gets longer since you’ve had short hair for the longest time ever (:

Denise ( January 27, 2012 at 9:51 PM )

I like the texture now but you look good with either length. Maybe just cut layers shorter and pin the longer layers under when you want to go “short.” I’m sure you know what I’m talking about :). Anyway I’m going through the same thing. I’ve been from hair down my back to a Halle Berry pixie and back again like four times in my life and now my hair is a little longer than yours (but mine is naturally curly). So I feel ya :) good luck and love love love your channel. Who do you style?

Roldana ( January 27, 2012 at 6:40 PM )

I’d love to see long hair on you!

Megan ( January 27, 2012 at 6:26 PM )

GROWGROWGROW! Long hair is soo fun to style, and play with. think of all the stuff you can do,like: sleek secy, high pony-tails, waves, curls, layers, braids, big up-do’s, buns.. most of which you cant get the same effect with a bob. dont give up!

Makayla ( January 27, 2012 at 3:47 PM )

Chop! more elegant!

Veronica Xu ( January 27, 2012 at 1:51 PM )

You are chic– –and for me, short hair is Chic. I also think that short hair is in better proportion with your height, and fits your style.

Debbie ( January 27, 2012 at 1:03 PM )

i like your hair in way, like it now :)

Isabel ( January 27, 2012 at 12:43 PM )

You should let it grow! I think it looks amazing and very flattering for your faceshape. Xoxo

L. ( January 27, 2012 at 9:39 AM )

Hi Christelle.

Your hair looks just sooo good right now. Please don’t chop them!!

With that bed head look you look rally strong and self-confident. Not to forget that it looks soo bohemien (I don’t really know how to write this word. I’m from Germany. Sorry… :).

All I can say is that I just love it! Seriously.

I’m thinking of cutting my hair to this length, too, but I’m a bit afraid of it, due to the fact that my hair are really long right now… :( Let’s see what happends.

So, PLEASE don’t chop them. OKAY?? :)

P ( January 27, 2012 at 7:37 AM )

Chop!!!!!!!!! A little bit but definitely NOT long!!!!

Anastasios ( January 27, 2012 at 6:37 AM )

Hmm, I’d say keep this length or [of course] grow it out. I think the length and the way you style it very much suites your personality (from what I gather here and via your youtube). Like many of the comments so far, I’d agree that with longer hair, you’ve more room to play with it. Good luck!

Elissa ( January 26, 2012 at 5:47 PM )

dear…wait for summer to cut. I do the same here.

Julie ( January 26, 2012 at 4:52 PM )

Grow!!! You look so amazing with longer hair

Adrianna Cardet ( January 26, 2012 at 3:34 PM )

Keep your hair the way it is now! I think it has more versatility than a sleek bob :)

Versaille ( January 26, 2012 at 3:31 PM )

I love the way you are wearing your hair now( wavy bob)i think medium cuts look absolutely stunning on you. Having your hair too long i think will make you look older and too short i think will make you look like a slim Mrs Swan.

Chantelle ( January 26, 2012 at 3:08 PM )

I vote to grow it out! If you don’t like it, or decide it’s not you, you can always cut it after you’ve grown it to your desired length! However, it takes much longer to grow your hair back out again from a bob. It’s always nice to try something new, so I say go for the long hair! :D I’m trying to grow my hair out as well, biotin vitamins help a lot!!! Hope this helps! :)

Alyssa-Marie ( January 26, 2012 at 2:53 PM )

I think your hair look best as it is now. The short bob makes u look older :(

Aria ( January 26, 2012 at 2:53 PM )

I can’t speak for you, but i would definately grow my hair out. I adore long hair! You can create way more different styles with longer hair as with shorter of my favourite hairstyles is the braided hair.

Tifa Canan ( January 26, 2012 at 2:08 PM )

:) Keep it long it looks pretty that way <3

Claudia ( January 26, 2012 at 1:49 PM )

chop chop chop chop! But i like the shaggy look, so a shaggy short bob :D

Mandela ( January 26, 2012 at 12:28 PM )

Grow it! I think you have a beautiful hair and you can wear it in diffrents styles! xoxo

Johanna ( January 26, 2012 at 10:59 AM )

i look fresh and really pretty in short hair :)

emilys ( January 26, 2012 at 10:41 AM )

grow :)

adda ( January 26, 2012 at 9:17 AM )

keep them the length you have now!

Flavia ( January 26, 2012 at 9:08 AM )

I´m brazilian and we just love long hair, like you can see in Gisele Bundchen =D i think you should let your hair grow, at least until your wedding. Later, if you still miss your bob, you cut it, right? you do look lovely in both ways, but the wave long hair looks more fun and young to me.

Fernanda ( January 26, 2012 at 7:39 AM )

MAKE SURE YOU READ THIS COMMENT. I personally like shorter hair better, I think it looks sleek but really cute. BUT. Grow your hair! I had a short bob like yours, and I’ve been trying to grow my hair for a year now. And when I look back on my old photos, I feel the exact same way as you. Just be patient & grow your hair! It’ll be worth it. When you get bored with it, cut it. It’s just hair anyway right? :D

Commentator ( January 26, 2012 at 4:29 AM )

Grow it you will look beautiful on your wedding <3

Pratikchha Rai ( January 26, 2012 at 4:09 AM )

I think you should grow, since you have had shorter than your shoulders for a while now :)

Chanel ( January 26, 2012 at 3:26 AM )

You should let it grow, at least till your wedding day. I’m sure you hair right now would be pretty during your wedding day. Long hair are always fun to play with anyways.

Nudge K ( January 26, 2012 at 2:55 AM )

keep it!!!

tina ( January 26, 2012 at 1:51 AM )

I’d say definately keep the bed hairstyle! It’s so chic. Or cut it real short, like supermodels :)

ps. I just followed your blog, and I’m learning alot from you! I’d love it if you take a chance to visit & join mine when you have a chance. Thanx.

Sooji ( January 26, 2012 at 1:47 AM )


Daphne ( January 25, 2012 at 11:42 PM )

I think u should chop it off! U really suits in short hair! :)

Ellen ( January 25, 2012 at 11:41 PM )


B ( January 25, 2012 at 10:48 PM )

Love the way it is right now!

Btw Chriselle, you’re famous on Tumblr!

Maria ( January 25, 2012 at 10:33 PM )

Grow… I went through an awkward period growing my hair, but it’s definitely well worth it.

Denise ( January 25, 2012 at 10:19 PM )

i always have the same issue! but i say cut it for something fresh,it’s nice to have a change once in a while, besides,hair grows!

Emily Vuong ( January 25, 2012 at 10:13 PM )


Jiamin Huang ( January 25, 2012 at 8:24 PM )

I’m having the exact same dilemma with my hair! I love cute short hair looks, but there are just SO many amazing things one can do with long hair! (braids & buns)

I’d say grow it out. You can always go short in a second, but it takes a looong time to grow it.

Hannah Wilson ( January 25, 2012 at 7:25 PM )

You look absolutely great with your current hair! <3<3<3

Ruby ( January 25, 2012 at 5:45 PM )

Your bob is cute, but I absolutely love the way your hair looks now when it is curly. I wish my hair would look like that!

Sydney ( January 25, 2012 at 2:35 PM )


Nate ( January 25, 2012 at 2:16 PM )

I love you hair the way it is. Just trim it like an inch to keep it tidy. But the bedhead chic look is amazing on you! I wish I could pull it off.

Nadine ( January 25, 2012 at 2:13 PM )

I’m asking myself the same question right now. I used to have a very similar hair cut to your shorter hair but I’ve grown it our past my shoulders. It’s a tough call because your shorter hair did look really good but at the same time you can do more with longer hair. I guess you have to think about which is more important to you: a look you can do more with or one that just all around looks good?

Julie ( January 25, 2012 at 2:05 PM )

Pleaase keep the hair!

The bob is cool, but it ages you somehow.

Kessie ( January 25, 2012 at 1:59 PM )

Let it grow! It suites you really good!!!

Kelly ( January 25, 2012 at 1:48 PM )

I would say grow, but I really understand that sometimes it feels quite boring and you want something new! Love your style! X from Amsterdam

Eva ( January 25, 2012 at 1:19 PM )

the length right now is perfect for you ;)

sandy ( January 25, 2012 at 1:16 PM )

I would say grow! But maybe just because I’m growing my hair at the moment

Chriselle, what ever you do you’re goregous! But I think short hairs are better! Chop! <3

Yaya ( January 25, 2012 at 12:56 PM )

Chop ;)

Serena ( January 25, 2012 at 12:38 PM )

I’d suggest you grow it out. Even though it looks messier and is harder to manage, it gives of a certain natural…gleam of sorts ^^”

Nanni ( January 25, 2012 at 12:33 PM )

Short. Not many girls can pull off shorter hair. In fact, I really admire people who can pull off an androgynous look.

Kay ( January 25, 2012 at 12:19 PM )

I think you should grow it out.

Xuan Vu ( January 25, 2012 at 12:11 PM )

Don’t touch it! Your hair is a perfect length and i love the slight curls/waves!

Summar ( January 25, 2012 at 12:10 PM )


Dagii ( January 25, 2012 at 11:30 AM )

You should definitely keep this length

Rebecca ( January 25, 2012 at 11:23 AM )

Keep the long hair! Well the bob makes you look more edgy yet sophisticated while the longer hair makes you look feminine.. The most important thing is to feel confident and comfortable with the hair you want :)

Delyshya Serafina ( January 25, 2012 at 11:15 AM )

let it grow out chriselle!!!! you look way wilder with long hair!!!

Astrid Marie ( January 25, 2012 at 10:56 AM )

Keep this length!

Viv ( January 25, 2012 at 10:46 AM )

I love your hair just the way it is now. Much more feminine,flirtatious, sexy and glam.
The Bob is nice too but its more stiff and serious.
Besides your getting married. Save it it for now and chop it after your wedding. :)<3

Joy ( January 25, 2012 at 10:28 AM )

Keep the length! You pull off the awkward length so well, I’M JELLY!!

Aneesa ( January 25, 2012 at 10:19 AM )

Grow it out for your wedding, then chop it off after :) Always worth it to have enough hair for a soft, romantic hairstyle on your big day!

Grace ( January 25, 2012 at 10:01 AM )

Grow it, or at least keep the length you have right now! I love your bedhead-hair!!!

Susie ( January 25, 2012 at 9:49 AM )

Grow! I would like to look more styles of yours with longer hair =)

Yuen Ling ( January 25, 2012 at 9:29 AM )

grow it, i think it looks amazing the length :D

wadiie ( January 25, 2012 at 9:13 AM )

grow!! or just let it stay at this length cause it’s so pretty and romantic!!!! at least till the wedding :)

Andreea ( January 25, 2012 at 9:02 AM )

Chriselle, I say embrace the length! Although management is a pain, it’s all worth it in the end. If you do decide to cut it into a bob, I think that looks very cute too. Love you, Chriselle!

Victoria ( January 25, 2012 at 8:57 AM )

You should keep it the length it is now! It suits you! The short bob was pretty aswell, but you look so young and fresh with the shoulder-length messy hair! :))

malin ( January 25, 2012 at 8:53 AM )

I love your look with your curly hair right now! Either stay this length or grow. :)

Carina ( January 25, 2012 at 8:51 AM )

I love the length of it right now – you can do more with it and looks very chic and lady-like! xx

Rachel Sanders ( January 25, 2012 at 8:17 AM )

I love your short hair. It looked really cute :) It’s different from the endless sea of long hair women ;)

Anne ( January 25, 2012 at 7:59 AM )

Let it grow, and have a new look. I bet that once it gets longer you will love it!

Aneirys ( January 25, 2012 at 7:58 AM )

GROW !! just let it like that :)

Charlotte ( January 25, 2012 at 7:44 AM )

grow! as i never seen how it is the long hair chriselle guru <3

ashlee ( January 25, 2012 at 7:37 AM )

chop it baby!

kay ( January 25, 2012 at 7:21 AM )

You look gorgeous both ways, but I say keep the length. I agree with others, I would leave it long for your wedding. Either way you’re stunning though :)

Sarah ( January 25, 2012 at 7:18 AM )

I think your currently lenght is perfect! It suites you really good!! Em I have a thought that the shorter hair makes you look older! KEEP THEM AS THEY ARE! <3

vana ( January 25, 2012 at 7:11 AM )


Kadda ( January 25, 2012 at 5:46 AM )

At the end it´s totally up to you and with wich length you feel best, but I love the length you have now. :)

Jennifer ( January 25, 2012 at 5:00 AM )

Please don’t cut it :o The long, curly hair looks soooo good on you!!

Isaura ( January 25, 2012 at 4:51 AM )

I’m baised because I have a pixie cut!!! I love you’re short hair and I loove you’re long hair, I love to see it straiteden btw!! (pretty please) Anyways, you’re longer hair makes you look younger, not that i’m saying you’re old!

morgan ( January 25, 2012 at 4:31 AM )

keep it at the current length or have a bob! you can pull it off! x

sardius ( January 25, 2012 at 2:02 AM )

Keep growing your hair. If anything just cut the ends an inch or two. But kEep it growing your hair out.

bianca ( January 25, 2012 at 12:59 AM )

short for sure.. you look so sleek and sophisticated

tiffany ( January 25, 2012 at 12:13 AM )

your hair looks great don’t cut it :))

stephanie ( January 25, 2012 at 12:04 AM )

I’d say don’t spontaneously do something you might regret, so let your hair grow, at least for now. If you still like the short look in, say, a month or two, you can still chop it off later, but if you cut it now and then realize you actually did like the long hair more, growing it back will take forever.

Elisabeth ( January 24, 2012 at 11:30 PM )

Keep it! I truthfully love the hair style and length you have now, it truly suits you more! (:

Bienmarie ( January 24, 2012 at 11:14 PM )

long =) patience is a virtue hehe

charm ( January 24, 2012 at 11:01 PM )

i think your hair currently suits you the best !

Elijabeseu ( January 24, 2012 at 10:23 PM )

love the hair right now! you should definitely keep the hair length right now!

Jess ( January 24, 2012 at 9:59 PM )


Nicole ( January 24, 2012 at 9:50 PM )

I love your current look! I know, once hairs are long enough, we want to go for something different from current hairstyle. I agree you carry off both the looks! But bob cut just gives you business-women look. But your hair adds an extra beauty, glamour n sexiness to your face!
If you are so desperate to cut your hair, just control yourself till wedding! Even though it would be quite unique to see a bob cut on a bride, or should I say 8th wonder of the world? lol. just my perspective, never mind! :-D

Jannat ( January 24, 2012 at 9:37 PM )

I think your current length and style is younger, quirky and fun. Your clothing style is pretty mature and well-defined so I think your current hairstyle contrasts with it well.

Tina ( January 24, 2012 at 9:22 PM )

I have exactly the same problem. I wanted to grow my hair long but miss my bob. I think I´m going to do what you´re doing in the end.

You look gorgeous both ways btw!

Nadia ( January 24, 2012 at 9:15 PM )

What you go with, you beautiful either way :) <3

Jazmyne Anderson ( January 24, 2012 at 8:59 PM )


meisha ( January 24, 2012 at 8:58 PM )

I think you should definitely grow it out! You’re soft messy waves are too familiar <3 and I LOVE THEM! So super chic! You're face shape and hair type is actually quite similiar to mine and I used to have it short but, now I LOVE it long.

Allison ( January 24, 2012 at 8:57 PM )

Grow, keep them till your wedding! xx

Aileen Agan ( January 24, 2012 at 8:27 PM )

Keep it at the lenght you have right now . :)
This way you’ll look more versatile and, even though I love your hair short, it isn’t as versatile as your current look .

VP ( January 24, 2012 at 8:25 PM )

I think you should trim a little and that all… I love your curls… ;D

Ginnifer Png ( January 24, 2012 at 8:02 PM )

I like the lenght that they have RIGHT NOW x) !!!

Marie ( January 24, 2012 at 7:53 PM )

I think a longer length would look GREAT on you :)
Plus, if you cut it and end up wishing you had long hair, it’ll take so long to grow it back out, and you’ll probably end up cutting it again. Then it would be a long time before you grow out your hair. But if you grow it out, one day, if you want a change, you can just chop it all off. But I say, stick with what you have, and just let it flow. :)

Annie ( January 24, 2012 at 7:44 PM )

Don’t chop! You will regret of your decision.
Trust me. I’m a victim of this case!

Yen Yi ( January 24, 2012 at 7:43 PM )

I would say keep your hair longer and let it grow! It looks so pretty down and wavy :)

Stephanie ( January 24, 2012 at 7:26 PM )

Keep the length that it’s at. The bedhead look is awesome!

Melissa ( January 24, 2012 at 6:42 PM )

I love the length where you are wearing the aviators and the white blazer

Tash ( January 24, 2012 at 6:19 PM )

Grow grow grow!!!

I love you with short hair, but I want to see what you do with beautiful long hair in your wedding photos. Long hair just becomes so much more… special than short hair in a wedding.

After the wedding, chop it off and revel in less stress (easy hair, and no wedding to plan!). :D

Janiece ( January 24, 2012 at 6:14 PM )

chop it!
you can pull off short hair so well, it totally suits your face shape and personality!

Bella ( January 24, 2012 at 6:11 PM )


JustAnotherOne ( January 24, 2012 at 6:02 PM )

Definetely… grow…GROW!!!

sanctiyago ( January 24, 2012 at 6:01 PM )

Keep’em growin,then cut it in 6 months for the best of both worlds in the new year|!

Abby ( January 24, 2012 at 5:57 PM )

Seriously, a bob looks really good on you. I personnally prefer the bob haircut on you.
I actually had the same question recently, i really miss my short hair, but ppl keep saying i look WAY too young when i have a bob and it’s not awesome to be told you look 15 when you’re 21…

Annabel ( January 24, 2012 at 5:51 PM )

Grow! Especially with your wedding coming up, you can do so much with long hair!
I always grow my hair out and then cut it short for Locks of Love. That way I experience every length =] You should try something like that!

KayNCha ( January 24, 2012 at 5:34 PM )

Keep growing those gorgeous locks dear! You are getting married and it is so pretty to have long hair for your wedding! I went through so many stages of feeling the way you do right now about missing your shorter hair after I grew mine out for what seems like forever! You look gorgeous either way, but I think it is so much easier to have longer hair and I would love to see you keep growing it. I used to grow mine super long, to the middle of my back and cut it boy short because I loved drastic change, but after 6 years of keeping it long, I realized it is so much nicer to have long hair, as you can just put it up in a pony and run out the door if you have no time to do your hair! Whatever you decide, you look great no matter what! xx


Pippy ( January 24, 2012 at 5:33 PM )

Right now, length is more popular! I’d like to see what you do with longer hair!! GROW!!!!

Kate Jones ( January 24, 2012 at 5:29 PM )

your long hair looks very natural and organic. it will be perfect spring time!

mew ( January 24, 2012 at 5:14 PM )

I like it when your hair was short (even shorter than in the pictures above when you would sometimes push your hair back behind your ears as in the Make Me Over event). You have a beautiful neck length and it would be a shame to hide it. On the other hand, it seems a little messy right now because of its awkward length. I’m sure if you do decide to keep it, it would look nice at an even longer length after an even trim. Ii would suggest that you finalize what hairstyle you want for your wedding first before officially cutting it if you decide to.

KC ( January 24, 2012 at 5:06 PM )

I love your bedhead look! The curls and waves in it look so effortless! I say grow it out. And the longer hair will give you more to play with for your wedding! :D

Hi chriselle, you should most definitely keep your hair till you get married! With longer hair you can create more interesting hairdos! Daven will have more options to do up your hair and we’d all hopefully have more hair tutorials about how to create longer bedheads :) my 2 cents! When’s your wedding day?

Sandra ( January 24, 2012 at 4:57 PM )

grow it out! especially since you’re going to get married you want to have options for your hairstyles!

vicheka im ( January 24, 2012 at 4:44 PM )

It does look better now. And can you please, please do a tutorial on how you get your bedhead waves!

Elle ( January 24, 2012 at 4:41 PM )

Don’t cut!!!!!! Not yet anyway think of all the fun things you can do with it! And if you want to after awhile you can cut it all off again.

Kiana ( January 24, 2012 at 4:39 PM )

Grow! I love the longer hair on you! :)

Selina ( January 24, 2012 at 4:34 PM )

I like how it looks in the first four pics : )

Jessy ( January 24, 2012 at 4:33 PM )

definitely to grow chriselle!!

Regie ( January 24, 2012 at 4:31 PM )

absolutely grow it out. You look great with your bedhead and I am really loving it lately. I have even had my hair chopped to that length same as yours to get that look. :)

Compare Auto Insuran ( January 24, 2012 at 4:30 PM )

Definitely grow the hair! it looks more full that way. Don’t matter anyway cause you look pretty whatever you do!

Grace ( January 24, 2012 at 4:27 PM )

definitely leave it at this length or grow it out! you look so much hotter and classier with the longer hair :)

Miranda ( January 24, 2012 at 4:25 PM )

My absolutely favorite is the short sleek look, but I think for your upcoming wedding keep it long, and then cut it back to the short sleek look again afterwards :)

melody ( January 24, 2012 at 4:24 PM )

Since you have your wedding on the horizon how have you pictured your hair on your big day? That should determine whether or not you should cut it again. I think you should let it grow.

Lisa ( January 24, 2012 at 4:22 PM )
Joella ( January 24, 2012 at 4:21 PM )

I am in the same boat. I have a bob with bangs but in the proces of growing them out. I love your waves and this style of cut gives you the best of BOTH worlds ease and legnth….also its a totally chic cut!!

Joella ( January 24, 2012 at 4:18 PM )


Up ( January 24, 2012 at 4:16 PM )

To grow!!! It’s so much prettier on you! :)

Mylene ( January 24, 2012 at 4:12 PM )

grow it out, I think.. even If You do Better with it, But If it’s to much to handle, maybe you should cut it. I’m growing mine out even if does Brother me to wash it all the time. I like it longer. Because Even if It a Pain I still Love it and Maybe I’ll cut in the Summer because It’s SO hot Here in Texas!!

Pamela ( January 24, 2012 at 4:04 PM )

To grow!! I’ve been in your shoes many times. I had a bob for YEARS and just when it was growing out, I decided to cut it again even shorter and I regret it so much. I definitely think you should grow it out because you can always pin it up to create a short hair illusion so I would say long hair is more versatile. If you miss your short hair that much, you can always cut it later when you are more certain about it!

I think we as viewers have seen you with short hair throughout the years. It would be really nice to see you with long hair and maybe that can give you inspiration for looks outside of your comfort zone?

You look beautiful either way so don’t stress out too much about it.

Manny ( January 24, 2012 at 4:04 PM )

I personally love you with short hair, Chriselle!
I think it frames your face beautifully and you look super chic and sophisticated!

Chita ( January 24, 2012 at 4:02 PM )

I’m actually facing the same dilemma!! A bob or shoulder length hair?
Well it takes me a lot of time to grow my hair and I’d like to see it long enough for some time at least but I definitely like the bob more, it just shows how strong and confident the person is, a woman who can still manage to be feminine without the classical and stereotyped long hair :D

Fatine ( January 24, 2012 at 3:49 PM )

NOOOO don’t cut your hair! I love your hair now! you look gorgeous with longer hair! ;)

Yappa ( January 24, 2012 at 3:49 PM )

I want to see you grow it out, just out of curiosity. Just kidding! I really think you look great with short hair, but I like how longer hair frames your face and elongates it as well.


Genie ( January 24, 2012 at 3:44 PM )

GROW! :)

Nancy ( January 24, 2012 at 3:43 PM )

Dear Chriselle,
I was so surprised to read this post! I have just been introduced to your blog a few months ago, so I was only familiar with your current hairdo, but I really (really!!) like it! I would never have guessed that this was just an ‘in between’ phase. If I were you I would keep it this length, but then again, hair grows, so cutting it shorter again can’t hurt. And this might not sound very feministic, but I would also keep in mind what you would like for your wedding. Good luck deciding! I’m sure you will look great whatever you choose! Greetings from Holland

Sabine ( January 24, 2012 at 3:42 PM )

I think it’s gorgeous the length it is right now! Don’t make it too much shorter or longer. I think it’s suiting you at shoulder length or a little above! Just the right amount of edgy and sexy :)

Roslyn ( January 24, 2012 at 3:39 PM )

Keep them long! I love your long and wavy look you do!

Alana ( January 24, 2012 at 3:39 PM )

I would love to see how you look with long hair. I know you’ll enjoy putting together different updo’s to add in with your fashion. GROW OUT YOUR HAIR.. (^.^)

Kathy ( January 24, 2012 at 3:38 PM )

i like your bob hairstyle :)
its just look chic and stylish to me

plang ( January 24, 2012 at 3:36 PM )

I like a lot more how you look now. Although I also like how you looked with the bob cut, I think you look younger with your current look and it is so much more fun.

So, I vote for KEEP THEM! <3

Daniela ( January 24, 2012 at 3:32 PM )

You have a very beautiful and elegant face, it needs to be showed off, so I say chop it, it also gives you a much more edgy and “look-at-me” vibe. Your current long hair looks nice, but it’s kinda tone down your face too much.

Tu Anh ( January 24, 2012 at 3:29 PM )


Andreea ( January 24, 2012 at 3:29 PM )

Grow!! I really love the hair style you have right now, way sexier!! :)

Marylou ( January 24, 2012 at 3:28 PM )

Don’t chop the hair!

Lisa ( January 24, 2012 at 3:28 PM )

I say don’t cut it and just let it grow!

dc ( January 24, 2012 at 3:27 PM )

I think the bob suits you! I agree with Riva though, cut your hair after your wedding! It’ll give you more hairstyle options for your big day :)

Sara ( January 24, 2012 at 3:24 PM )

GROW!!! You will look sexier!

Annie ( January 24, 2012 at 3:24 PM )

I had the same dilemma! I had a very short bob cut before and my husband loved it so much! And he still wants me to have it like that. But now my hair has grown long, he has finally grown to love it too! If you wanna go back to your short hair, i suggest you do it after your wedding! So you have more options! :)

Riva ( January 24, 2012 at 3:20 PM )

grow :)

Joyce ( January 24, 2012 at 3:20 PM )

Everytime that i look picture of my highshcool i remember why i like it my hair short but i preffer to keep my hair long because there is more options to play

Erika ( January 24, 2012 at 3:20 PM )

Grow it, as i am trying to grow my bob too, and it’ll look better on your wedding day as well.. chop it after your big day!

Karen ( January 24, 2012 at 3:19 PM )

I honestly like you better short! It’s sleek, stylish and frames your face! I also like the current length, but not too sure if it gets longer.

ML ( January 24, 2012 at 3:18 PM )

Grow grow grow! :D

Vicky ( January 24, 2012 at 3:17 PM )

I love your short cut as well!!!
Remember your video with Michelle about 7ways to use scarf??
That look the best with you!!! :D

miachelle ( January 24, 2012 at 3:17 PM )

Grow! :) Makes you look younger but the shorter haircut makes you look stylish and sophisticated if that’s what you like :) You look nice either way

Caroline ( January 24, 2012 at 3:17 PM )

Grow it!! or keep it like that!! :D you look amazing with your crazy curls!! just love them! :D

Jacqueline ( January 24, 2012 at 3:17 PM )

I like your hair long it look better on you…..

Morgan ( January 24, 2012 at 3:16 PM )

Grow out your hair!!!
Plus, small tip.
Get some hair stuff, moose, gel, whatever.
Put a small amount in your hand, and scrunch your hair.
More visible curls! :D
Therefore, it wouldn’t look as awkward.


Mai ( January 24, 2012 at 3:16 PM )

Let them grow. I really like your beach waves styling with the mid-long hair! And you look younger with this look. I think the sleek bob wasnt romantic enough and looks too clean and sharp for your face :)

Evi ( January 24, 2012 at 3:16 PM )

I think you are one of the few women who actually look good with short hair without it looking butchy lol not to offend anyone or anything like that, I say CHOP! hehe <3

Mandi ( January 24, 2012 at 3:16 PM )

i honestly think you are beautiful no matter what you do …. but i love short hair n it makes u look young n fresh short is not typical to me so ill say go for short!

rach ( January 24, 2012 at 3:15 PM )

to grow :)

agatha ( January 24, 2012 at 3:15 PM )


Sara ( January 24, 2012 at 3:15 PM )

I think you should keep your hair long. Longer hair make you look younger plus you have the freedom to style them in a bun, ponny tail, etc.

Elina ( January 24, 2012 at 3:14 PM )

You should keep it like that ^^

hasna ( January 24, 2012 at 3:14 PM )

Grow it! You look far better x

Caolan ( January 24, 2012 at 3:13 PM )

Grow it out! Then you’ll be able to give us more tips about hair and such.

Jan ( January 24, 2012 at 3:13 PM )


Elin ( January 24, 2012 at 3:03 PM )
Marta Merino ( January 24, 2012 at 2:56 PM )

keep the shoulder length!


monkeyshines ( January 24, 2012 at 2:50 PM )

I love the longer hair best! It looks so great all bedhead-y like that. I know how you feel though, it gets boring growing it out. You start to crave something different.

Rachel ( January 24, 2012 at 2:49 PM )

It always happens to me too! When I try to grow my hair longer I feel the need to cut them, because in the end I feel better with a short cut. Then if you feel to cut your hair, do it ;)


Elisa ( January 24, 2012 at 2:45 PM )

I promise you, I have been debating with the same exact thing lately!! And I keep getting confused and switching back and forth but I’m considering a much riskier short hair cut.
Anyways, I go with grow! I actually like the length you’re at right now but I think since you’re so used to short hair try something different!

amali ( January 24, 2012 at 2:42 PM )

longer hair! short hair makes you look older :>

U ( January 24, 2012 at 2:41 PM )


DE'ANNA C. ( January 24, 2012 at 2:38 PM )

Love the wavy messy bob Chris! The shorter bob’s too sleek for your changing style…love how you’ve gotten a bit more boho as of late!

Peace. Love. LOL!


Julie Khuu ( January 24, 2012 at 2:30 PM )

Keep it growing, and stay away from old pictures! You look wonderful as it is, however, and I don’t think this length looks awkward at all. You manage to pull it off in a way that many girls (including myself) never could.

Erin ( January 24, 2012 at 2:26 PM )

I love how you look now, with longer and wavy hair!!!! doon’t cut! :)

GiuliaC ( January 24, 2012 at 2:25 PM )

I really feel like short hair style would suits you more!!
To me you’re like a confident, chic, independent woman and all of these characteristics would suit short-hair girl!! And with the beautiful neck of yours.. I’d love to expose them ;p

Pim ( January 24, 2012 at 2:25 PM )

Keep the shoulder length!

Vivie ( January 24, 2012 at 2:23 PM )

I love your hair right now. The curls are awesome. And I prefer the way you look with long hair :) but hey it’s your hair, and if you cut it, it’ll grow again.

Tatian ( January 24, 2012 at 2:22 PM )

KEEP THE HAIR!!! don’t chop it.No matter how many times you feel like chopping your hair down.Long hair is much versatile.You abn play around with it.:)

Morbid angel ( January 24, 2012 at 2:21 PM )

*more lady like

tseq ( January 24, 2012 at 2:20 PM )

for me long hair always seems a little bit lady I think you should grow out :)

tseq ( January 24, 2012 at 2:19 PM )

Chriselle please show us how you get your bed head look! It’s do pretty! & my hair is the same length as yours. I would love to know! Thanks…

Jess ( January 24, 2012 at 2:19 PM )

Grow! :)

Larissa Ayumi ( January 24, 2012 at 2:18 PM )

I like the length it is right now!

Erin ( January 24, 2012 at 2:18 PM )

For me .. its KEEP EM ! I liked your short hair as well .. but the longer hair does give you the great look .. and frankly and being completely and beautifully honest .. does make you look younger .. !
