View Full Version : My Haircut

After lopping off my own longest, splittiest length, I discovered that my haircut was crooked and went to the stylist. After she finished making my ends even, she asked politely if she could straighten my hair. She felt that would best bring out my hair's beauty and show off her handiwork. She promised that she wouldn't hurt my hair. The other people in the salon oohed and aahed; I blushed.

Very pretty, but I like your waves too. :)

Just look how shiny your hair is! You must be taking really good care of it, despite the splits.

Wow!!! It looks beautiful. How did she straighten it?

Wow!!! It looks beautiful. How did she straighten it?

She used the flat-iron with protective spray; she was very fast. Time will tell as to whether or not she hurt my hair, but I just couldn't say no. Truth be told, if this length is the longest my hair can be and still look and feel fabulous, that's fine with me. I imagine that wurly my hair will be right about waist length in the back, a little shorter in front (it's a U).

Your hair is amazingly shiny and looks very well moisturised. I just love the natural variations in your browns and silvers.

Wow, Spidey! What a fabulous treat! So lovely to have a little change once in a while. It's a reward for all the hard work, diligence and patience.

Your hair, whether straight or curly is breathtaking.

Oh my goodness, SpiderMom, your hair looks breathtaking in this photo, and look at that shine, and it looks longer too, despite the trim!

Lovely!

I confess I am drawn to your waves, but your hair is exquisite straight, too.

Very nice, but I like your waves too :) (and those are less damaging I guess)

I think we'll see the loss in length the next time I wash it and let it go wurly.

Your hair is pretty if it's wurly or straight. I aspire to have awesome hair like you.

Your hair is beatiful spidermon. I like it straight or wavy. Both look great! I really like to wear my hair straight sometimes too. It just feels good.:)

Fantastic! I love love love what straighteners do to my hair shine-wise....but I just can't bring myself to do it. Once every 5 years or so LOL!

I think your hair is beautiful either way. But, what fun it must be to have treated yourself to that straightening. Thanks for showing us. It couldn't hurt much at all if you rarely do it.

Darscilla

Wow wow wow! That's why straightening irons are so addictive! I wonder how much damage they really do, if you use a protective spray like your stylist did? I mean, how often would be too often? :ponder: My irons are still in my draw, I haven't got rid of them, but I haven't used them for a couple of years. I used to find the smoothing effect lasted even after the first wash, and omg, the shine...

Wow, your hair is super-shiny! 8) Looks good; I imagine straightening just once is probably not going to cause you problems.

o.k., o.k. -- I'm officially blushing again. I started out writing thank yous to each one of you individually, but I've kind of bogged down under the response. I know there are a lot of threads out there. My sincerest thanks to each of you for looking at mine and taking the time to comment.

So pretty! It was only straightened once - can't hurt, right? You did say she was fast, and that's key.

Wow, gorgeous hair, spidermom!! She did a great job on the cut.

Now that is thud worthy hair! Holy cow it's looking gorgeous! Hope you are enjoying it. I love it when the stylist straightens mine. I don't own a straightener but it sure is fun to have that look once in a while.

Planning to post any pics of the wurly version? :D

Ladies and gentlemen, do not be alarmed. The loud crash you heard was Vel falling off her chair. She is unharmed and will return to regular blathering shortly.

And SM? The next time you post about hating your hair...:whip:

Wow, the shine is really incredible, but it is kind of weird in a way.

I think it's odd there are people who I "know" who I recognize from the back of their head. Having your lovely wurly waves gone is like having a different face.

I love it either way, the shine is so pretty, but the natural wurls are also lovely.

Your hair looks so lovely and shiny! And I'll echo whoever said that it doesn't seem you've lost much length at all. Beautiful. :)

Shiny shiny hair, but I think I do prefer the wilder more natural look the curles give you. Having straight hair myself I prefer curls :)

I'm quite sure we all have hair envy now! That's utterly stunning. Nice to hear everyone else at the salon cooed over it too. They know good hair when they see it.

It seems my stylist likes to show off that she has a long-hair client. She's growing her hair out, too.

I've rarely seen hair that's been ironed that looks so healthy! Gorgeous!

Thank you so much. I never iron it myself anymore. At most, I will allow the stylist to iron it when I get trims every 3-4 months because she loves it so much.

It's wurly today, and I can definitely see the loss in length now (but I'm still happy). I might get a new signature if I can get somebody behind the camera for me.

It looks lovely. =) And I know how you feel. Being a curly/wurly myself it sucks to have so much length hidden by the curls! You are an inspiration to me!

March 20th, 2008, 09:23 AM
How did I miss this yesterday???? :eek: Your hair looks so gorgeous both ways!!! Don't you wish there was some way to straighten it once in a while without worrying at all about damage? I LOVE seeing the true length and feeling the silkiness once in a while myself and pretty much the only time is when I go to my salon too (which has been um probably a year :) )

I love your waves too, you have beautiful hair just to embarrass you further! Okay my mission here is accomplished! (leaves thread now)

I think 1 time does not hurt either.

Hm..I trimmed badly too..zig zag with 1" difference to be exact. But I dont want to go to a salon...;)

OMG, your hair looks amazing, spidermom! I love the cut. I think it's pretty both ways, but straightened you can really see the definition of the hemline and the blinding shine!

Oooo, fun! It looks great --and I bet you can't resist feeling how straight it is all the time, running it through your hands!
Straight or wurly, it's gorgeous and the colour is so pretty. :)

My sister used a straightener on my hair once ( I have pretty straight hair already) and I had broken hair (short spiky at my roots). It does look great and I hope the protective spray did its job.

I believe it! My daughter used a metal straightener on my hair once and I could find burned hairs ever after. The ceramic plate straighteners - not so bad.

My stylist was very fast; I think my hair will be o.k. If not, we won't do it again (even if she does love it).
