View Full Version : 2 Years & 8 Months Later...

It's been 2.8 years since the haircut from Hell. I can't search for my posts for some reason, it says I don't have "permission" but here's the link to the thread I bookmarked: http://forums.longhaircommunity.com/showthread.php?t=79487

So here I was pre-haircut in October 2011:

and here it was straightened:

The photo below is the result of me asking the "reputable" stylist for LONG layers, the upper most layers at the top of my head were only 2 1/2 inches long and he took off 8 inches of length in the back overall. So I went from waist-length to just-under-the-shoulder-length:

And here I am now with a ponytail:

And here it is the way I normally style it, no pony, no clips, no headbands...just nice long natural curls:

Not bad for only 2 years and 8 months.

I still have some layers that are just under my shoulder that will need to catch up but overall I'm pleased and relieved. It was a l.o.n.g 2 years and 8 months!

Gorgeous hair! And it grew quite fast as well. And this is also why I don't get my hair cut (or trimmed) by anyone who isn't me anymore.

Wow! Your hair did grow fast! Would you mind sharing your secrets? It looks lovely.

Love the curls!

Love your curls!

Great growth! I'm amazed at how much the stylist cut off. I guess "normal" standards of long are really warped.

In this first photo I can see your confidence, but in the after photo I can see the uncertainty in your expression. I would have flipped if someone cut that much more of my hair than asked for. The progress is great, and your hair looks beautiful!

Wow, your hair is very beautiful! Your curls are a natural work of art!
