    Option 2 would be a big change, but would also be fantastic on her!

    i voted for #2! i think with her thick yet fine hair, a shorter do is the way to go to give it more fullness and volume. plus #2 appears more modern, easier to style and you can always grow it out!

    I miss the more extensive commentary :-( What is she looking for exactly? Either cut would look nice.

    I’m voting number two because I think a shorter, fuller look would be very pretty. She’s a lovely woman with a long, thin face; and I don’t think that long, thin hair is the most flattering look for her. I also like a part that’s a little farther out to the side rather than almost centered, the way she’s been wearing it. This will have the added benefit of giving her some volume at the top.

    I say option 2 but just a bit longer that what’s shown in the picture.

    Both are good options, but I vote for keeping it long while you can stand it… (And I agree – the commentary was a big part of Hair Thursday’s charm, Whoorl! Why not even just a paragraph of bon mots?)

    I miss the words as well! Especially as they could be what helps other people in the same situation – cutting down on the need to email HT.

    Ah! Hillary, so cool she’s up here! =)

    I like option one, I think it’s a little softer. But I may or may not be being influenced by the Isla Fisher post that’s also up here.
