Big Chop and I love it

So I decided I wanted to cut my hair short for the summer, and cut all the dyed black hair. The current color is after several hennas, which also relaxed my hair a bit making going short a lot easier. My stylist is Deva-trained but we when with a more involved cut involving a lot of texturizing. I did this to start growing it long again, but I love it so much I may stay short for a while. Its so easy!

    I put a tiny amount of pomade on and blow dry them to the side. The I run a flatiron over them. During the blow-dry, I clip the hair around my bangs back.

    Mine look like straw if I try to do that!! It's very, very flattering. BTW: You're very pretty and the shorter hair really looks good.

    I like it! It's very flattering on you. :) Very sassy! :D
    My sis has similar features and looks best when she has it cut like that. She's thinking of going shorter again, I'll have to show her your picture. :)

    Nice cut!

    I'm letting my hair grow to about that length (dry, with more curl). It's such a flattering length - you and I have very different face shapes (mine is more chubby) but it is flattering for both.


    Your hair also looks gorgeous shiny and healthy!

    If it smells good put it in your hair, if it tastes good spit it out!

    Aww thanks, ladies. Yeah I'm really feeling this length. I had short hair like this in high school, but the cut was terrible and I had no clue how to care for curls. After that I had an aversion to short hair and grew it long until last year. Now I keep playing with making it shorter, though I think this the shortest I should go with my texture.

    Half empty/half full view? I'd consider your hair to be loooooooong! :blob7:
