How do I nicely suggest to my girlfriend that she would look better if she cut her hair?

First off, let me say that my girlfriend is by far one of the most beautiful girls I have ever met, inside and out. She's perfect in every way. I'm not trying to change her and this definitely isn't a deal breaker, only a suggestion to her. My only complaint is that she has pretty thick hair that is kind of curly and it covers her face. Her hair is pretty, but I'd love to be able to see her face. She hates pinning it back or wearing any styles because she says anything on her head gives her a headache. She has to push it back with her hands all the time and it always falls back in her face. She hasn't had a haircut in months and her bangs are down to her shoulders now. What do you think the nicest way to suggest a haircut to her is? If she doesn't want one that is fine, but I'd like to at least suggest it.

  • Natural Curly is Very Beautiful, although Very hard to handle, I will give you That.. I have a lot of my own Curl left.
    However, you have said a Mouthful here, dear, by Having a Sour ball and All in your own Mouth about Something that would make her More 'Beautiful,' is okay on my own Part... As long as you Don't go overboard with suggestions.
    Yes, a Trim is fine, tell her you would Love to Treat your Sweet. Suggest that you would enjoy Pampering your Poodle with a Hairstyle so she can still Smile And.. you as well.
    Good luck. xx

  • Say it in a nice and jokey way maybe. Straight and simple you know don't make it sound like a lot cause the more focused and detailed you are when asking her/bringing it up the more it seems like an issue to you. Just say something like "hey beautiful you know how your hair kinda irritates you sometimes, you ever thought of shortening it just a bit so it stops bothering you?"
    If she asks why and acts shocked or what ever just stay come and pretend it just came up in your head a few seconds ago. If it doesn't turn out good then ultimately you can just say "yeah I didn't really think through it all the way just forget about it..., blah blah blah whatever you want to talk about next" in order to get off the topic

  • Curly hair gets even bushier when it's shorter. But you can try letting her know that you'd like to be able to see her face more.

  • Curly hair gets more curly and frizzy/bushy the shorter you cut it. I know because I have it. I'd say that she's just at an awkward stage with her hair. It might be nice to get the ends trimmed to keep it healthy but other than that letting it grow is the best thing. Maybe she can tuck it behind her ears though? If you really want her to cut it, buy he a gift card to a hair salon. She might use it

  • Just next time you catch her pushing her hair back or something: "have you thought about getting it cut?" After that, it's all up to her.

  • How about you buy her a hairdressers/pamper appointment?

    Sit with her and the hairdresser and a proper dresser should be able to thin the hair and make it look glamourous. Say how you think it would like nice like ex and if the hairdresser agrees (bare in mind they take more into account like face shape) 2 against one will sway her. Tell her any shade, any style, it's on you (because a re-style is more expensive than maintenance). Here it will set you back £70-100 to be well done (including dying and the works)

    This way you look like a generous boyfriend, you can voice your views and have a professional back you.

  • Well, you could tell her that you would love to see more of her face. Suggest she get a layered cut to help show it off more.

    How she takes it totally depends on her.

  • Hmm i wonder how you'd look with your hair cut.. i think you'd be a real hottie most female won't be able to pull of the look but you? I think. You'd totally rock it big time , what do you think? Hopefully i helped... good luck.

  • I also have thick curly hair, and it was long, so my "kinda ex bf" was like hey, I think u would look really good with short hair, and he started sending me some pics of nice haircuts... He convinced me XD... Anyways, now I cut it and I really like it, just started telling her that she will be pretty with it and encourage her with some pics! Good luck!

  • Cutting it would make it worse I know because my natural hair is very wavy. Cutting curly hair short just makes it bushy and frizzy. Growing it out would make it better because it would weigh her hair down, making it less curly and you would be able to see her face.

  • Surprise her maybe?

    Get her a voucher or something from the hairdressers and that way she can choose to do anything she wants with her hair.

    Or when you're both alone, look at her face and just suggest to her "babe/darling (or whatever pet name you have) I can't see your beautiful face with the hair style you have now, let me take you hairdressers" or something like that. I probably sound real corny lol but it's something I would like so... maybe give it a try :)

  • Justt tell her that you think she'll look hot in short hair and will she please consider it? I don't think she'll be offended. I love guys with stubble or beard, when I was with my ex, I told to never shave again, just trimm.. most of the times, he listened.

  • I don't know about her, but just tell her nicely. I can guarantee you that the results of that would be a lot better than my college days when my female friends had scissors and needed a hair cut.

  • Next time she does it (and seems annoyed by it as well) casually bring it up to her, I dont see the harm if you do it properly. Just be like "(insert name/nickname), why dont you get it trimmed again if it's bothering you?" but make sure she is in a good mood, that will increase the chance of her having a positive reaction.

  • Just say something along the lines of "hey babe, I really love seeing your beautiful face and your lovely smile but I can't see your wonderfull face when your hair covers your face, so I was thinking of getting your hair shaped around your face so I can see ur lovely face."

  • Just tell her you wish you could see her face more, and ask her if she'd be willing to look at some possible hair styles with you. Looking at them would probably get her interested in cutting her hair.

  • Cut out the "look better" part and say you should get a cool haircut. She sounds like she's got good hair to work with. She can have fun with it. Or you can say you'd love to see her face more underneath the long locks

    • She does have very nice hair. People comment on how they wish they had it all the time. She just hasn't cut it in a very long time now and it's starting to get pretty thick and covering her face. I thinking cutting out "look better" is a good idea too, thanks!

  • How about something like a Dutch Braid, like a braided 'crown', that keeps the hair out of her face, but elegantly displays it, in a very sensual way?

  • Straight up. When she complains again, just say "you should try cutting your bangs". That'll open the conversation up and anything you say should be formed as just ideas for her to accomplish what she wants to accomplish. Because it's ultimately her decision and you want to keep things you recommend Win/Win.

  • Do you know any hair stylists? You could talk to them about the matter and then arrange to "accidentally" run into them when you are out with your lady. You make the introduction and they say to her, "Wow. You are SO attractive. Have you ever considered cutting your hair like this. . . [blah, blah, blah] you be even prettier!"
