New Hairstyle Pictures: Updated with pictures of my cut

Help me choose a new haircut by voting on the most becoming style. The photos can be found in my Fotki Album. I know there are subtle differences but humor me. :wink:

Things about me: I have tightly curled hair, an oval face and plan to dye my hair brown (similar to Subbrock's color). Pictures of my current hair can be found in my hair albums. The password is hair.

Thanks!


Edited with pictures of my new cut.

    All of the girls hair looks so beautiful! It is so hard to choose! But, I would ultimately go with Eva Pigford's cut if I were you! I do think that everybody's dream cut and texture would have to be No. 5 for sure!

    You have such beautiful hair. And I'm so jealous of anyone who can look good in those short cuts. My favorites are #1 and #2.

    I picked style 1. I like that it is short yet you can see some curls in there. Style 2 was similar but it looked a bit shorter so it kind of took off the curl texture. All the others were too short or too straight looking. They were not bad, just didn't call my attention. I guess I like curls :wink:. I love Eva's hair by the way! Very fun and sassy.

    Cehua, why have you decided to cut so much hair? Just curious. Anyway, a short cut will look fab on you since you have an oval face.

    Thanks, jeepcurlygurl!


    Yes, SYB, I love Eva's cut. It is very sassy.



    I think I will go with the first cut. Now all I have to do is make that appointment. I never had short hair before and I think it will be exciting!

    I have always admired women who get their hair cut really short. It gives me the impression that they are very confident, you know? like they don't need that long hair as a blanket of comfort or to feel sexy. Good for you for having the guts!

    I got bored with my hair couple yrs back too and got a chin length pixiecut. First and only time I've had short hair. It was a fun experience because I learned a lot about my hair that I never knew before.

    I did not expect hair compliments. You curlies are so sweet.


    This is what I decided. I am going to bring in a bunch of pictures and have her work out a look that is unique for me.

    I get it cut tomorrow!!!!

    Wish me luck. I have butterflies in my stomach. :P

    Now, all I need is a pair of big hoop earrings........ 8)


    Thanks for all of your help, everyone!

    I'm too late to vote, it's probably already done. If you took in the pics then she probably helped you choose a perfect look for you.

    :arrow: So now we want to see! :D



    PS - did you ever remember the name of the singer you thought I looked like? just curious. :)

    Pictures have been loaded in the "Before and After" folder. The password is hair.

    I had the hardest time getting the pictures on Fotki. Right now I have two pictures loaded but will add more when I have access to a different computer.

    I bought earrings like these to go with my new look:

    I need to practice with different looks. I tried to do a finger-wave but failed miserably. How are those done?

    CurliLocks, I cannot think of her name. I am going to ask my mom. She may know.

    Z-it is because of people like you that I do not look into the camera. :wink: :lol:



    Thanks for all of the help, curlies!

    Your cut looks lovely! :D Congratulations on your new look.

    I used to try different things when I had short hair but it's hard to remember-- have you tried brushing it wet with product in it? I do remember that gave me a wavier look, as opposed to curlier. I also remember that I would use headbands to add waves. 2 or 3 of the soft kind on wet hair. But I'm sure there are better techiques the ladies here will share with you!

    Thank you for the compliments, curlies!

    It has been almost a week and I love my new cut. This morning it looked so nice that I did not even wash it. I am going to save a fortune on hair products. 8)

    That cut really shows off your curls nicely. It's so cute!

    Sure, NOW you update the regular hair board after I search and find it on the 3c's! ;) :D As I said on the other thread: It looks great! :)

    Just found the password, sorry, a bit slow this evening. I think it looks great! It shows off your curls really well and may I add you have beautifully shaped eyebrows.

    About the middle part, did you read the Curly Girl Handbook and see that "straw set" part? Where the girl used little pieces of straws to set her curls where she wants them? I wonder if that would do anything for you as far as setting your curls where you want them? I love that girls hair too.

    Your hair looks fabulous!! Thanks for sharing. :D

    It is a little hard to see, but I think it looks great! I wish I could get to see your face with it too, but I totally understand that you don't wanna show it.

    I am almost a bit jealous of the short cut. I have been thinking of cutting mine too, but my hair type never look as good as your in short in my opinion.

    So what did it feel like cutting it off? Was is "scary"? :wink:

    Anyways, I really like it. :D

  • alguma pessoaalguma pessoa Posts: 619Registered Users
    You guys are too sweet. Thank you for the compliments.

    It has almost been a week and I am still loving it. I now know how to work with it better. I found that it is best not to touch it after I get out of the shower until it is fully dry.

    On another note, I tried the [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/DevaCare-No-Poo-p-465.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=devacurl-devacare-nopoo]DevaCare No-Poo[/buylink] and it felt so good on my scalp.

    I was not scared once I got in the chair but I did keep my eyes closed until the last hair fell. I was afraid I would chicken out. :oops:

    I have more pictures but for some reason it takes a while to load pictures from my desktop to Fotki right now. I will probably update it later.
