I'm hating my hair more than usual...

My hair is so frizzy lately no matter what I use on it and is just out of control. The temps have been in the 80's with higher than normal humidity for winter, which isn't helping matters. So I made an appointment to have it cut. I haven't had it cut since July because I decided not to got back to the Ouidad stylist, since she and I can't come to an agreement on how my hair should look. I have an appt with a new stylist in St Pete. (got from the salon recommendations), do you think it would be okay to bring photos of what I am wanting my hair to look like? They are just some styles that are baselines I don't expect to look like any of them but maybe it help show her what I style I would like instead of this frizzy out of control mess I have right now. I don't want to insult her or appear to be rude if I bring pictures.

    I think it's a good idea to bring pictures, as long as the styles are realistic for your hair type.

    I agree. Nothing frustrates my stylist more than for someone to insist on a certain style that their hair is not capable of doing.

    Thanks ladies for replying. I just needed some opinions. I have 3 pictures that are very similar to my hair type and length. Just want to use them for reference. Thanks again!

    Bring pictures definitely. And if you are going to see Cynthia at Practically Frivolous in St Pete, she is not offended by bringing pictures at all. I bring her pictures periodically to change things or learn how to do different parts, etc.
