This is officially Rain's new haircut which we will be seeing a lot of in the coming chapters. Like her long hair, I will probably have her change it around from time to time (more so with different accessories, because there's naturally not as much she can do style-wise), but this is kinda like the new default (like her braid, previously).

It's honestly a good thing I plan so far ahead, because it took years to find a style I was satisfied with. I must've gone through at least a hundred (maybe I'll post the scrapped styles someday). I would design a look and like it for weeks and then one day just be all, "NO! IT'S ALL WRONG!" But I think what made it hardest was that it wasn't supposed to be "perfect". I mean, I had to come up with a shoddy cut first (as "styled" by Kellen) that could be made into a final cut that was both cute and passable, and yet potentially questionable under certain circumstances. It might sound strange, but I still don't think I was completely sure about this look even when I drew this page. But as things go with me working on later pages, it's grown on me (you might notice in the coming pages, that I'll frequently have her facing different directions and angles so I can get used to this).

But enough of my mindless babble: what do YOU think?

Perhaps Emily should consider a career as a stylist. Rain looked more boyish before Emily fixed it than she does afterwards so she's obviously good at it.

questionable?

reply

@LittleLynn84: by questionable do you mean androgynous? before transitioning i had short hair and wore sweatshirts & jeans. i was perceived as female by my behavior. back then for a while i left my hair a little longer in back because of my ducktail.
by the way,as a child my dad had the barber give me a flattop. i hated that haircut!!!

@cathyfan:

By questionable, I really just mean that her hair could raise questions. I won't get into specifics for now, but there are a lot of different ways a lot of different people could interpret things.

I really like Rain's new hair cut. But there's an important question that needs answering. How/where did Emily learn to cut hair?

Maybe she cuts her own hair.

It's okish I guess, I think it might look quite good when it's an inch or so longer :) I don't think I ever personally want to have hair shorter than at least shoulder length again, but I think in my case that has as much to do with my body type as anything, which isn't anywhere near as much of an issue for Rain, being as young as she is and coming from a family that (from comparing Aiken and Vincent at least) isn't overly tall or well-built anyway

I think it's the most feminine Rain as ever been. She looks cuter and girlier than she did with her longer hair, in my opinion. I hope she gets used to it and becomes more confident!

If she says it feels wrong then she should get it back to right as soon as she can. I hope nobody tries to tell her this is better because she so strongly feels that it isn't. This is something she can and should heal rather than accept.

Her hair is so cuuute~ >o< It being chopped off in the first place still gives me that sinking feeling but Emily does damn good work and Rain honestly looks super cute with short hair.

Well, as we say in my family:

"The difference between a good haircut and a bad haircut is two weeks."

Admittedly, my hairstyle is not nearly as important to me as Rain's is to her, but still - her hair will grow on her. (pun intended)

whoa...Rain look really cute with short hair. Which is good because she seems more like one of those girl that short hair works better on. But I just have one question. Where did that hair-clip come from
