From Sadie’s email:
I am 19 years old and in desperate need of hair help. I want something that is young, stylish and maybe a little funky. I am sick of having the same long boring haircut. I have almost always had long hair, but I really REALLY would like to try out a short or even medium cut with bangs. The only problem is that whenever I cut my hair shorter than a couple inches bellow my shoulders, it poufs out and becomes straight-ish on top and curly frizzy under. It is a nightmare.
Sadie (love your name, btw), I think you could pull off a shorter look, depending on how much styling you want to endure on a daily basis. Here are two options.

For option #1, Charlize Theron‘s long bob has delicate curls and just the right amount of airy volume. I think this is the shortest Sadie would want to go, considering her hair type and heart-shaped face. The look is definitely sexy and youthful, and would totally accent Sadie’s natural waves. I would highly recommend Sadie using a curl cream to help define her waves and keep her hair from looking like a “poufy nightmare.” Pureology Real Curl would be a fantastic, but another less expensive option is La Coupe Define Curl Shaping Gel.
Now if Sadie isn’t ready to make the styling commitment that comes with a shorter bob, Emma Stone‘s side-parted hairstyle with sideswept bangs could give her a totally different look without sacrificing all of her length. Sideswept bangs are great for heart-shaped faces, and I would love to see Sadie’s natural highlights sweeping across her forehead.
