I'm doing it...

I just made the appointment for 11:30am. I don't plan to go THAT drastic. I think i just want to bring it up to more of a bob. My hubs told me last night he has always loved my hair angular. So I'll probably have a little of that going on.
NO ONE knows. Except my favorite wavies:)

    I like wavy hair cut a little longer than chin length in an inverted bob. I think that's a cute cut.

    Something like this. Maybe a bit longer.

    I love that cut wavy! I have actually been noodling doing a big cut and bringing my BSL up to a longish bob. I can't wait to see your pics!

    Ya. See if they can individually cut some curls at the bottom. If you get a blunt straight cut in that shape it's going to look all triangular.

    Once your hair is styled and curly, you can hold the scissors in a more vertical position and individually clip some curls at an angle so the curl wraps around more.

    Picture a "C" if you were to angle the scissors in the middle of the C, from the outside, in a vertical position (angled a little bit so the tip is facing in toward the inside center of the C), it would make the scissors cut the inside of the curl shorter, which would make the outside of the curl loop around more.

    If that makes ANY sense at all. Sometimes I do this when I get home if I get a professional cut. I do this randomly and spaced out around the bottom of my hair. It breaks up the bulk at the bottom so there isn't that clump of curl that sits on top of each other at the bottom.

    It's DONE!! i really can't believe I did it. I love it. I just styled it and OMG it was CAREFREE. I can actually wash and go with this style. It's a little shorter than i had anticipated , but my stylist did say my short layers were shorter than Ginnifers.
    Go to my fotki:)

    Love it! I love the cut. (It looks a lot like mine, hair sister!)

    How refreshing!

    It is refreshing. I feel more me right now.
    So... hubs still doesn't know. My stylist told me to put some sexy undies on with high heels (you know because i have no $$$$$ ) so i plan to do it. I wonder if he'll crack up at me. I hope i don't break a leg. Should i come to the front door looking like that or call him upstairs???
  • solidgoldsolidgold Posts: 1,485Registered Users
    I would say do NOT attempt high heels on stairs after your recent tumble, wavy.

    Plus, it's probably too cold to be traipsing about in just panties and heels. What can I say, I'm more practical than sexy.

    Dark, mine gets straightish when it's that short, too. WE'll just hang out at collarbone length together. :)

    Wavy, it looks GREAT. It's about the length I started at 2 months ago. Wish mine looked like that so I could go short again, haha.

    Routine: Occasionally wash with Lavender baby shampoo. CO wash with Garnier triple nutrition conditioner, use a nickel sized blob as a leave in, scrunch out a little water, scrunch in some aloe gel (FOTE), then scrunch in some Biosilk Rock Hard Gelee (BRHG). Plop with a backwards turbie twist for 10 min - to overnight.

    I'm getting a Deva Cut, my hair is wicked long past BSL (Bra strap length) when it gets that long it gets stringy...So i'm doing whatever she things is best. With he exception of chopping it all off. I want the proper cut for my curls. Not the typical blow out my curls cut and hope for the best...

    Do it, DO it!! it is the most care free cut i've ever had. I just showered and let it air dry and it actually looks ok. I mean i could go out and be fine with it, and it sorta does a flip up:) The curl is pretty much out, but when i style it is there a bit of it. I'm just happy to not have to spend an hour on something that most of the time didn't look all that great.
    And let's just say, i've never seen my husband so happy! he loves it ... well he loved the whole "look", if you catch my drift.
    thank you for all the sweet compliments:)

    LOVE IT!! That cut is SOOO you! It is stylish and cute all at the same time. I'm so jealous because my hair doesn't lay right when it is short. :sad2: I'm actually growing mine out because I get more curl, but I wish that I could do short! I think I have a "short hair" personality! And it would certainly be easier to take care of with all the running I do....

    I, as always, have serious hair envy Wavy. I just love your hair.:love5:
