View Full Version : I had a haircut!

Nothing traumatic, though.

I have not set foot into a hairdresser's shop for four years, only once for a tiny trim. I have been self trimming very little, but my hair was no longer in a good shape.

We moved recently so I was a bit apprehensive of unknown hairdressers, but I told her what I want (c. 10 to 15 cm off, U or V shaped hemline, tiny layers for better fall but still updo-able), and this is what she did.

Pics before, with 98 cm:

messy nautilus, one of my staples

messy equlibirium, another staple (you make a normal equilibrium but instead of pinning it as a bun, clip the ends and let the rest fall like a twisted ponytail)

and this was made an hour later, after the haircut:

I'm happy with it. I still have 81 cm in the longest little bit, and the tiny wisps she left, I can take off myself. She didn't wash my hair, only wet it and put in some coneless conditioner, and afterwards, she put oil in my hair, not cones. She did a quick job and I'm glad I can wear my hair open again! But still do updos.

BTW, I'm wearing one of my karizas ;-)

She did a great job!
You have beautiful hair, I'm glad you're happy with the new haircut!

And, btw, I'd love to see more kariza action shots :)

It looks like your stylist did exactly what you asked for. Did you get a recommendation before you went to her?

I like your hair in both the before and after pictures. The cut sure did thicken up the hemline. But in all the pics, your hair color is just plain beautiful!

Wow, you have really beautiful hair! The haircut made it even more beautiful.

Absolutely no recommendations. We just went the main street up and down, and went in when we saw a hairdresser's sign. The girl was nice and they had interesting art on the walls, so we stayed ;-)

I love it.
The more I see hip length photos the more I prefer that length over all others.

Thank you! So kind of you all! I knew you'd understand! It is really an important day for me.

For more than three years, my highest priority was gaining length. Now, I look for healthy ends and an open-wearable shape. My priorities have changed a bit. I'm very happy with my way until now, and I love the new length.

Glad you found a hairdresser who did such a good job (the art on the walls would've swung me too :p ); looks very thick and healthy! :)

Your hair looks great. I did the same thing about a year ago and really enjoyed wearing my hair down for a while.
