Hi guys i'm getting my hair cut next week before i go away for a month for trekking and helping out in an orphanage etc for my world challenge trip - i've always had my hair long but obviously i really need it to be a bit shorter for practical purposes!!

Anyone got any ideas on what to ask for? i'm a bit apprehensive about short hair as my hair is very fine and naturally i have a realllyyyyy high forehead lol!:dontknow: I have 3a hair :)

    My advice would be no matter how much you cut off, make sure that it can be pulled into a ponytail. To me, nothing is worse when you're running around all sweaty to have hair that won't fit up. Also, I've found that when it's too short to put up that you are constantly styling your hair.

    I hope you don't mind me posting on the curly teen board, I haven't been a teen in a long time! I just wanted to say I am SOOOOO impressed that you are trekking and helping out an orphanage. YAY!!!! :cheers:

    I would definitely just do the ponytail thing with a cute baseball cap and not worry about having to style your hair. You won't have to worry about taking so many hair products and the cap will keep the sun off your face and help keep you cool!

    Have a GREAT time!!!!! :blob2:
