You look more feminine with it up.

It would depend on the occasion, and what clothes you were wearing.

This I think is maybe the second time I ever tried down. Now that my hair is coming back I can hide quite a bit. But I did end up wearing it up as usual. After about 45 minutes of it down, it was getting kind of unruly. I have extremely frizzy hair. 

But I have a wedding coming up. So I may try down for that. Definitely time for a haircut though. Last one was November 2017!! Last time I shaved my head. 👩🏻‍🦲 of corse I have been saying that since February. Lol

I think more feminine with it up too, but also agree with changing for the occasion.

Like an accessory, wear it accordingly. Other than that, try wearing your hair up for a more feminine look.

Could experiment by going halfway between up and down with a pollyanna? You'll get the length from the bottom layer and with the top layer pulled back, it will accentuate the feminine features previous posters mentioned. Might help with the frizz you mentioned too ;)

Only an end trim to even things up a bit and then the down will be the more feminine.

I wish that the hair on the top of my head was longer. That’s my issue with the down. Or even more with the half and half.  I have no bangs because my hair is still like a baby’s hair. I am so grateful to see it coming back but gosh is it slow growing. But it IS growing! That’s what I try to remember. But it’s about 1” long at this point. And only in like 2/3 of the area. The rest is still baby fine hair that’s trying to make the shift. In a year or two styling down will be easier. And I definitely like down more. Especially when I don’t straighten it like I did here. It’s super curly and has lots of volume everywhere but up top. So I still think it looks funny. 

And yes Vicky, only a trim!! Can’t lose the work I’ve put in this far. Lol. Growing hair is a slow process to say the least. It’s like,,,, well it’s like watching hair grow!! 🤣🤣🤣🤷🏻‍♀️

I think down suits your face more, but I agree with the suggestion of varying it up depending upon the situation.

I think changing how your hair is styled is part of the fun of being a girl. I think the down is more feminine on your face. Play with different style and have fun with it!

Half up-Half down styles can be a lot of fun!  When putting your hair up, you can also try pulling hair from the sides and back (and not up and over) so it gives you a more feminine hairline.  That's my trick at least!

      Congrats, Astrid!  Dealing effectively with your dysphoria is always a big plus, and your goals seem well thought-out.  It sounds like you have a good doctor.   I started out on low dose E using a patch, with Finesteride, but my goals were different and the combination wasn't doing much for me, so my dosages were increased after 4 months or so.  So our experiences are not that close, but I'm sure some folks will come by with good accounts that align more with what you want.   HUGS   Carolyn Marie

      I was fortunate to discover that there's a clinic that is licensed to teach electrolysis to student nearby.  As a result, my sessions are $20 per hour (performed by students under professional supervision) rather than $60 to $80, the local rate from qualified clinicians in my town.  I've been doing 2 hours a week for almost two months now, and it's gone very well.  Obviously, the savings is significant.   Might be worth searching to see if there's anything similar near you.   With best wishes,   Astrid

      Today was my initial visit to Fenway Health here in Boston regarding HRT.  As a non-binary (and older: age 71) person with dysphoria, I was interested in low-dose estrogen as a way to address that, and I was pleased that my doctor there agreed that it would indeed be appropriate to begin this, following my next visit in three weeks.  She recommended not taking a T-blocker, at least initially, as it of course carries more side effects. I'm not looking for pronounced body changes (such as significant breast growth or weight redistribution to my hips).   I'm interested to know if others have gone this route of low-dose estrogen, and if so, how you found it?   I know that "mileage may vary" from patient to patient, of course 😊   Thanks!   Astrid

      Hi Mahaney, welcome once again!
    • Jani
      With all the discussion about trying to find a doctor who will see LGBTQ persons I found this story interesting.  Take a listen, its short.  https://www.marketplace.org/2019/11/12/the-doctor-who-left-primary-care-to-help-lgbtq-patients/   "Dr. Crystal Beal left primary care to open an online doctor’s office, QueerDoc. Beal sees patients in Washington and Alaska over video and soon will be expanding to Idaho. QueerDoc provides gender-diverse care, everything from hormones for transgender patients to contraception and letters to change gender markers on identification cards."     https://queerdoc.com "QueerDoc is a totally online doctor’s office focused on queer and gender affirming medicine."  Its just her and another provider at this time.  They don't take insurance.  They provide care on a sliding scale so fees are not the primary focus of her practice.     Jani

      I've been on this site for awhile now and want to introduce myself. I've joined this site with the name Mahaney, which is combination of my given birth first name and middle name. My given name is Moi. I knew I was transgender at a young age. I repressed it until I moved out of my parents house some 5 or so years ago. I decided to wait till I was on my own to fully embrace my full womenhood until I could do so without fearing anyone. My title says I'm M as I'm not sold on my new feminine name. I can't decide if I want to go by the first name Mahaney, or Moira, or my favorite Melissa. Any way Hi everyone.

      I do feel a little better. I’ve done everything that I can today so I’m not going to stress about it anymore today. Tomorrow I have a lot to do. I have to go return my work shirt to the agency because I’m not allowed to take it directly to the university for some stupid reason. I’m sure if I did that they would call the agency just to make it hard for me to get any further assignments. I don’t want my paycheck to be held back for any reason so I’m not taking any chances. And I have to get more time slips because I gave them all to this passive aggressive supervisor under the false pretense of going full time. I expressed my feelings about that to the agency because that was just dirty of her. She’s supposed to contact the agency for them instead of using all mine. What a piece of dishonest trash.     I’m starting to feel the joints more lately and it’s one of the biggest reasons for requiring a bathtub in my next apartment. I really miss just soaking with a decent book or maybe some music and candles. As long as I don’t fall asleep in the water!

      I hear you sister.  Crying is a stress relief but does not make the things that stress us ho away.  I’m looking at a very grim and uncertain future financially so I understand your fears and anxiety’s over it.

      Both knees and shoulders but got now that’s it. It is a challenge some days.

      Welcome to my world, arthritis sucks! Have it in my hands, feet, knees and shoulders, sometimes getting out of bed in the morning is a real process, but sleeping in makes it worse. Getting up at 0500 taking the dawg out for pee-pee time, making cawfee and then feeding the dog is a necessary routine to get loosened up and functioning normally.

      Hi, didn’t have time for coffee today.  I had a medical appointment at 8:15. I have pain from arthritis in my big toe.  To my surprise he’s going to operate on it next week.  So the rest of the morning was spent getting pre-op testing.  Tomorrow I meet with my endocrinologist.  I’ll find out about prescription adjustments.   Willow

      Believe me, I’ve had several good cries over the last week and it’s definitely cleansing but still doesn’t address the immediate reality.     Yes that’s true, I’m just scared that doing what I have to do is going to land me in the hospital which would only compound my current problems. I can’t even be honest about it with potential employers because they will definitely see me as a liability. So it’s a catch 22 yet again.
