Oh Hair Choices [Jul. 28th, 2008|10:22 am]

[Current Mood |curiouscurious]



First off, I won't be turning 19 nor 50 due to the style of hair I get and whichever I pick it will be cherry red on the bottom and my normal red with blonde highlights on the top. Please keep in mind my current reality. I'd have awesome hair every day if I could take time to style it, but with current pain levels that isn't possible. It has to look ok straight, curled, and slightly wavy (air dried). If I can still put it up in a ponytail in the back all the better. I can now.

This last photo is how long I'd like my hair to be eventually.

I like #3 and #6 best, the cut looks similar, just that 3 is shorter and straight. But I said this to someone over on WLS today. Don't come to me for hair advice, mine is long and curly for a reason. :)

I think #5 and #6 are the same haircut one curled and one straight just with different color. I'm liking that cut too, but both are a little shorter than I wanted to go.

Maybe they can be done longer?

I think the best thing to do is bring them ALL of the photos and describe the exact situation. Ask them what they think would work best with my hair texture and go for it!

I know exactly what color I want, so why not let someone who knows hair decide? The salon I picked got rave reviews and one person even drives 40 minutes from Capitol hill to see their stylist out by my house. I have a $10 off color coupon too. :)

I also love #2, but I think you're right. Just tell the stylist that you've found some pictures that you like, which would be best from their experience.

Yes I agree with this whole-heartedly. If you've got a good stylist, engaging their professional judgment and opinion will only do *good* things for you. The best haircut my mom ever got was when she once plopped herself down in the chair, explained her limitations, and then told the stylist to do whatever they wanted. (And then mom moved across country. And still mourns the loss of that haircut/stylist.)

I wish I could be of help, but my hair is straight, straight, STRAIGHT, so I don't really understand hair that is otherwise. I don't dry or style it in any way, sometimes I sleep on it wet, shoot I could go through a wind tunnel and it would still look just the same as it always does. (Which was very traumatic in middle school when curls and poufy bangs were in, but is very awesome nowadays).

I like 2 and 3, I think. Too bad I cut my hair last week, or maybe I'd try one of those!!

THanks for posting these. I think I'm going to try out something between #2 & #4 for myself...

I agree that handing yourself over to the stylist is the best idea. I have yet to find a good stylist and have been going to hair cuttery (shudder) for the last few years. I'm going to treat myself to a GOOD haircut before I go back to work in sept.

I love #2, but yeah I would bring all of them in. I've had better luck the more photos I bring in.
