I will be getting a haircut from John *UPDATE* After pics

On July 24th, I will be getting my first curly cut ever from John at Fringe salon. I am ecstatic!!! I was thinking about going with something completely different and extreme. However, I realized then that I will be driving to another state just to see him, so I need a very low maintenance cut. I think I am just going to have an overall trim and shape done so it will look better as its growing out.

    Yay! You're finally getting to go?! :) I know it's going to look great. Maybe he can come up with something edgy and easy to grow out? :) I'll be on vacation then, so have fun and good luck! I'll have to search for this thread when I return in August to see how it comes out. Take lots of pics!

    it is exciting to have a hair appointment with someone who's gotten rave reviews!!!
    don't think of it as crossing a state line, just think of it as travel time -- how long of a trip?
    maybe he'll have some ideas that will be good as it grows in?? ask.
    have fun!

    Oh..I am so excited for you!!! The salon is very cool and he is great. We must have photos!!! He thinks all of curly girls on NC.com are crazy - but in a good way.

    He will love working with those gorgeous curls!!!

    My boyfriend will be the one driving me down and i have already informed him that he is going to have to take pictures during and after so there will be plenty. He has accepted his fate as a curly girl's SO.

    Aw, thanks! I am just going to have a trim and shape I have decided. I have one side that is longer than the other so I will be happy to have that fixed!

    I am trying to go out my hair, but in try 3a form my hair is just getting curlier as it grows.

    That's second day hair...that you consider messy and "just got out of the barn"? I'd take hair half as good looking for my first day "going on a night out."

    Good Luck Carmen!! I know he'll do a FAB job he's already got gorgeous healthy hair to work with!!! Say Hello to him from me ;) When xcptnl and I were there he was looking into adding a new line of products. I hadn't tried CJ yet but had the samples. He would love to hear your input on CJ tell him I tried the AF and loved it! He'll be fascinated to see 2 totally diff heads benefiting from this line.

    I think it's great as is! But if you wanted to do something different, I think it would look pretty longer - so that your front pieces are shoulder-length or few inches below.

    You could also do an asymmetrical cut: cut at an angle so that it's longer in the front, and shorter in the back, and slopes downward on the sides. You'd probably have to wait until it was longer for it to work, however.

    My shine was from the Komaza coconut pudding, plus we had great weather yesterday.

    I KNEW I would come back and someone would remember!

    Overall, it was a good experience. John is very nice and very outgoing. Everyone there is full of compliments. So anyways, he basically sat me down and asked about my hair. What I like, what I want to change, and what I want for a style. I basically told him I want longer hair but he could take off as much as needed to give it the shape it needs. I walked about with hair about 3 inches shorter, which saddens me a bit but it will grow back with a better shape.

    It was the first time I used Deva products and I am glad I never wasted my money. My hair was producty feeling and frizzy by midday. I would go back given the opportunity but the price is a little scary to me since I am used to paying <$20.

    My hair feels the same - I think it's the set it free.

    I am ok with the price because I go maybe 3 times a year.

    Your hair is so beautiful I am sure it looks fantastic. I am sorry the amount taken off made you sad!!!

    It was either the set it free or set me up. I didn't like it either way!

    Carmen, do we really need to ask you to post pics?? Come on :blob:

    I'm sure if it didn't need to be done he wouldn't have cut as much. John was hesitant to cut xcpntl shorter remember?? Of course, it's gonna be a shock at first but as long as you keep taking care of those tresses it will bounce back ;) It feels a little weird for the first few days when I get it cut until I get used to it too. Like xcptnl said it's not like you're going for a trim every 6wks you might see him 2-3 times a year and it's so worth it for a quality cut. KM had said in another thread that we wear our hair every day.....

    Pics will be tomorrow. Promise! Its been a long hard day of travel and rain for my hair.

    I agree, he only cut off as much as needed. He said that its in very good condition but does have some dry spots that need to be addressed. It was so amazing to have a stylist who knew what I was talking about and didn't judge me based on my haircare.
