Hi there. I just found this forum and I like it so far. I tried to search for "short hair" threads but I'm so impatient when I want answers. My hair is short right now. The top is probably three inches but the sides and back are probably only 1.5 inches. Also, my hair is fine and thin. My questions are: I think the top is long enough, but are the back and sides too short? Does the rip and twist method sound suitable? Would it work on the short parts? Would bleaching it help? Any tidbits of info you've gained through experience would be much appreciated.
