Shallow crisis time

I have an intense love-hate relationship with my hair.
One of the biggest hate sticking points comes from a lovely little cowlick I have on my forehead hairline towards the middle. A 'widows peak' they call it. Anywhoo, this makes it hard to have bangs. One of the stylists I went to said he'd remedied that on one girl by shaving it and having the bangs fall over that spot. I don't know if anyone else does that and I don't know if I'm brave enough to shave a place on my head. So my way of changing my hair use to be to get bangs but since that is a bit more intense of a move, I'm pondering something else.
Now that I've given more information than anyone would ever want to know about my hair, I can get to the dilemma I have now. I want to cut it off. I'm sick of never having or wanting to take the time to do my hair to the point where it looks decent. So usually its throw into some sort of braid or just pulled back. So, I think I want to cut it. But I'm shallow still in some small way. The utilitarian in me says, 'yeah cut it off and be free-heck-shave it all off' and the vanity in me responds, 'do you really want people looking at you as one of those kind of people?'
So help a sister out: continue to have frumpy hair, grow it out and learn how to do it better, or chop it. Here are some pictures of some ones I like. The only problem is I'll have to figure out a work around for the bangs across, make them longer and swept to the side or find someone who will shave the cowlick.
Check 'em out:

Option 1:
Option 2:
Option 3:

Option 4:
Option 5: (the safe option)

Vote and tell me what you think! Then I can start to wonder about darkening it. I think I want to, but I don't wan to be tied to the cost to keep it up.

I like the safe option, it's SO cute!!! I can't wait until you decide and post... we miss you. I think I'll chop my hair off too.

I really like option 5 but option 2 is cute too! Good luck, I'm a chicken when it comes to my hair too so don't feel too bad =)

I like #1 and #2, but NOT number 4. Pleas, avoid the 'poof' like a plague! Option 5 is alright, but far too common. I swear, like 75% of women I know have that haircut.

I really like #5, I know it is the safest but I see it looking cute on you.

Wow, when you say chop, you mean CHOP! I say go with whatever one you like best...you will never know if you will like it until you try it out. As for me, I chopped my hair like number 5 a few years ago, highlighted it, and I LOVED it...I just didn't like all the money and upkeep that went into it. Plus I missed my long, flowing hair that I could curl in waves...so now I am growing it out. Good luck! You will look great no matter what you do!

I think you should do your hair the way you think is cute no matter who likes it. As long as you like it who cares. I think I like number 5 the best though. Good Luck!

Option 5 is definitely the cutest.
