Hi everyone! I'm new here--recently discovered I'm pretty sure my hair is wavy, not curly as I previously believed.:oops: I'm attaching a picture and asking for advice--I'm going to get it cut soon (keeping the length) and would love thoughts. I basically want big bouncy hair with longer layers, but somehow my stylists always have trouble giving me that. Think almost any country music female singer mixed with Kate Middleton's hair and that's what I'd like.

Also considering investing in Kerastase products--do you use them and like them? Worth the price? Which ones? I currently just use Tressemee Flawless Curls shampoo and conditioner and follow with It's a 10. Then mousse if I wear it down and wavy that day.

TIA!

    Wow, gorgeous hair. You have real spiraling on that one side! I know. It's hard to find a stylist that won't just give you that Jennifer Anniston look if you ask for long layers. I know one thing is you really have to stress NO razoring and ONLY use scissors. No texturizing (unless you aren't prone to frizz. Then it might give you volume, but very few people with hair as wavy as yours aren't frizz prone). Check on the stylist forum for things to ask/look for in a stylist. I'd say your best bet is to check the Deva site for someone trained near you OR this list of curly specialists: Curly Hair Artistry – Global Stylist Listing | Scott Musgrave Hair

    If anyone there is near you I HIGHLY suggest just going to them. It's just a whole world of difference and it doesn't matter that you are wavy not curly. Regular stylists just don't get even wavy hair and they are after everyone to just straighten (for the most part. It's hard to find people who do know how to work with wavy or curly hair to get the most out of it. They'll SAY they will and then they do some choppy layers in which just looks like choppy layers, not a proper cut on wavy hair.). That's why you have not had much luck. I bet they all do this: http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-ZIrvHmLy79c/UZ-nCSTD6SI/AAAAAAAAAb4/XBN7LLkOWdI/s1600/womens-layered-hairstyles-4.jpg It's just not going to work right.

    This is the best video I have seen for wavy hair cutting. I wish more stylists would do this. No texturizing, just long layers, scissor cut. Then they need one step further where they go back in when it's dry and shape it a little with scissors. Take a look. I haven't had the nerve yet to ask a hairdresser to watch it but I'd like to. Heck, I've never seen one yet that has an actual diffusing bowl like that. They just have those flat ones that they kind of lift your hair up with and scrunch with the other, which does very little IMO. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yx7YYTqGex8
