One month in and a new haircut!

zosiazosia Posts: 17Registered Users
It's been a month since I went back to my natural hair and put the GHD's down.
Today I got a fantastic hair cut by the lovely Neel at Cherry Bomb in Melbourne, Victoria (for any aussies out there!). He cuts it dry, btw.
Hair is quite short but it needed a fresh start.

Thought I'd show some comparison shots from about two weeks in of wearing my hair curly and today :)

First time I walked out of a salon and didn't run home to wash and re-style my hair!
Yay!

    It looks fantastic! The shape is great and it really suits you. Isn't it great to get a haircut you love? I'm going to get mine cut today after about a year of experimenting with growing it out, and I cannot wait to get it chopped off, lol!

    Congrats on a great cut!

    rustina -- i'm curious as to why and how you are cutting your hair. i love your avatar, but i've seen photos in other threads so i know it is much longer. i'm asking as i am considering changing my style -- having layered hair around the front, having the front shorter than the back. now it's more of a blunt cut with lots of pieces (avatar). it's the sides of my hair, the very white pieces, that give me a problem, they either look like cotton candy or like heavy hair. there are some days that they just curl up and it looks fabulous, but not on a consistent enough basis. i talked about it with my stylist and he says it is from the loss of texture in the white hair. (i will never color again, love the color and ease of my hair, so i have to figure out best cut for the texture.)

    can you put some photos here?

    Thanks again everyone! It's also held up well when I styled it myself two days later which NEVER happens.

    Starmie, you definitley should! Neel is brilliant :)
