hey all~

wow. who knew there were so many people with curly hair... and they have a website... and a forum... :D:D:D geeboz. well the reason i'm here... I'M GETTING MARRIED :D:D:D:D ... in june, and i'm kind of a planner... so i'm starting to look at hairstyles for that.

i think i'm one of those people that marketers for products-for-gullible-people with-curly-hair should hire, because i will try anything at least once. most of the time, my hair looks like a shorter, darker version of something like Taylor Swift's, occasionally it acts badly and i punish it by tying it up in some sort of wierd messy bun on top of my head. even then all my straight haired friends are like "Oh MY GawD! your hair is AMAZING!! i SO wish my hair would do that!!!" and over time i've sort of tuned it out. don't get me wrong, i love my hair, but the hype isn't really all it's cracked up to be.

anywho, i sort of ramble. but if any of you have seen Taylor Swift's new video for her song "Love Story" i L-O-V-E her hair when she's in the corset-dress on the balcony (not the ballroom one)... look it up people.. it's amazing. (not to mention i love the song to.) ok, well that was a lengthly introduction, but hopefully someone here will understand what it means when the conversation goes something like this:

(stylist)"So, how much were you looking to have taken off today? 3? maybe 4 inches?"

(me)"Well, considering the fact that my hair shrinks up 3-4 inches when it's curly vs. when its wet and straight, let's take of a 1/2" and see where it lands us"

(stylist) "Nobody's hair shrinks that much, here lets just take this much off, you'll love it! trust me."


....lol. had that conversation recently... i got up and walked out of the salon. . true story.

    OMG! Good for you. I made the HUGE mistake of letting a stylist do his own thing (never get hair cut while PMSing!) about 7 months before my wedding. MISTAKE!

    Congrats on your upcoming wedding and welcome to nc.com! BTW in case no one has told you it's mandatory to post pics! Especially if your hair is that great! J/K! (sort of :toothy10:)
