Up until last week, I had really long, curly hair that was perfectly suited for lolita-- but I got a little bored of having to spend half an hour brushing out and styling my curls every day, so I chopped my hair off last week.
The problem: now that my hair is no longer, well, long, I can't wear my typical braids or ponytails with my lolita outfits. Since most of my hair acessories were bought specifically to suit those sorts of styles, I'm currently at a loss for what to do with my hair. It doesn't look quite right to wear loli without the hair accessories, and with the exception of a pair of hairclips, the remainder of my bows and accessories don't really look good with my current style. Especially my head-eating bows-- now that I don't have the long curls to sort of "balance them out," they look costume-y and a little silly.
Are there any lolis who have shorter hair--specifically shorter, curly hair!--who could give me some tips as to what works for them, hair-accessory-wise? Or perhaps provide some styles that look nice with minimal ornamentation? For reference, my hair is actually only a few inches shy of my shoulders when straightened, but I don't like to flatiron it much, and when it curls, it's not-quite-chin-length (and it looks like this-- please excuse the smudgy quality, I just wanted to take a quick snapshot of how my hair looks normally!).
Thanks in advance!
