You know, that stuff that sits on the top of your head.

We all know it's a bit of a love/hate relationship.

There's no denying it. Your hair can be the difference between feeling like a Disney princess, and feeling like you must have done some nighttime break-dancing on your pillow.

I'm rather emotionally attached to my hair. I'll confess, there have been more than a few times I've cried after a haircut, not because it was a bad cut per se, but because of the shock of it all. I always have a very specific idea of what I want my 'do to look like, and then time again I am faced by the brutal reality that my hair is not the lusciously full and flowing stuff of my favourite childhood princess - no, my hair is thin and fine and altogether rather un-luscious. On the verge of my 20th birthday, I'm proud to say that I think I've finally acknowledged this sad truth.

So, what on earth can I do?!

No, I don't think the answer lies inside the billowy mass of this c-r-a-z-y hair dryer. But I thought I'd include a picture of this awesomeness just because.

Anyway, I have decided that I need to find my optimum style. Not Keira Knightley's Elizabeth Swan look from the Pirate films, because that is just not realistic. Neither is Anne Hathaway's Princess Diaries hair (sigh... I spent so many years hoping my hair would just magically look like that if I only grew it that long...). Nope, I need to find what's right for ME.

And - looking back on this picture of me from Summer 2010 - what's right for me is, I believe, less hair! Tomorrow I'm off the salon to get a thoroughly good chop and hopefully re-emerge with thicker-feeling locks and a style that's more appropriate to my hair type.

I've been frantically pinterest-ing all of my favourite short styles in the past couple of weeks, and compiled a collection of 'do's that have won me over.

The lovely Keira Knightley

Emma Watson looking FAB, but what can you expect?

Lady Mary took the plunge and got the chop too - what would Carson say?

Keira again, from the 2008 Chanel Coco Mademoiselle advert

Gorgeous Gigi Darcy (Allison Paige) from the Lizzie Bennet Diaries YouTube series - check it out here!
It's happening! I'm joining the "short-hair, don't care!" club.

Making the most of my last day with long(ish) hair,
