How Self-Confident Are You?

  • I love myself, totally!
  • I am down with me, but there's always room for improvement.
  • So what if I don't fit in? Uniqueness is where it's at, baby!
  • I'd give anything to be someone else.

My hair is really short. Like, I'm talking slightly more that two inches. I'm having a really hard time making it look nice and I just am feeling plain uncomfortable. Any cute hair suggestions?

Do you have a lot on your mind already? If you do then that might be why. You get easily upset from your history or stress. It might help for every once in a while to take a break and do something you like.  Or maybe it's your temper. if it is then try not to worry on the subject that is upsetting you, especially mean girls. Well, I hope this helps :)
