I hope all goes well and most importantly that you will like your new cut! Can't wait for the result pics! :)

December 29th, 2010, 10:30 AM
Make sure to post after pictures! Hope you like the cut! :)

December 29th, 2010, 10:41 AM
you have so beautiful shiny, thick hair, i may that hairdresser is trustable, and can do that style without cutting much :)

December 29th, 2010, 11:43 AM
Thank you for the support and good vibes! :flower:
I will definitely post some after pictures later tonight.

I'm sure she'll will do a fine job! It's my favorite salon ...I've had 3 haircuts there over the past couple of years, and loved all of them. I've also gotten highlights, pedicures, & massage there ... never had a bad experience.
I like their hair products too ... organic, no sulfates, no parabens, no weird chemicals, cruelty-free

I haven't gotten my hair done in more than a year ... I'm excited and happy! :) and kind of relieved too ... the layers and shape have been bugging me for 2 months straight.

Good luck :)

Beautiful hair, good luck with your hairdresser appointment! I used to bring pictures too, because sometimes it's hard to explain what you want, and it helps a lot to be able to just show it.

December 29th, 2010, 02:54 PM
Gorgeous hair. Good luck, I can't wait to see the after pictures. Your hair is my dream, too bad I can't have wavy/curly hair like yours. It's wow. :D

December 29th, 2010, 04:07 PM
that looks like some good preparation! good luck and I'm looking forward to pictures :)

My hair feels so pretty and balanced and shapely. I can't upload pics from my phone though so I will have them by tomorrow at the latest. Yay!

I am eager to see the photos!

I like both sets of pics AND YOUR HAIR too ;) I am super jealous of the waves!!! Can't wait to see "after" pics!!

December 29th, 2010, 09:08 PM
Here are pictures, as promised!! I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :flower:
I asked for her to style it straight but I'll do a wavy picture too when I wash it and restyle it! :)





My stylist was so awesome... looked at my pictures and asked me specifically what I liked about them so she could get more details about what I wanted. She talked with me about how she was planning to cut it and what to expect... She asked when I had last shampooed my hair (which was this morning) and she recommended that we only use conditioner on it instead of a full shampoo - which is great because I was planning to request that if she didn't suggest it. :) (I have read a little bit of her blog in the past - seems like she is a fan of less frequent shampooing and occasionally washing with conditioner instead of shampoo.)

After the cut she asked me how I would like my hair styled ... I suggested straight since I never see it straight and I was curious. I asked her not to make cutting adjustments after it was straightened because I've had shape issues at other salons when they did that; she was very accommodating about that and promised to rewet it if any adjustments were needed (they weren't).

She also complimented how healthy my hair was and said it was "like glass." woohooo! I might be doing something right.

Anyway I got exactly what I needed - the shape & length & everything is just perfect :) I am very happy!

As a bonus ... no razor, yet the ends aren't chunky. I have no idea how she did that but I think it means the ends will stay nice and fresh for longer.

Sounds like you had an amazing experience with one very thoughtful hairdress who is a good listener too! it came out great, looks super healthy and very beautiful!!! She is a keeper :) Congrtas and Happy New Year and New Growth !!!

The hairdresser did a lovely job, your hair looks very thick, and such nicely shaped hemline and style. :)

December 29th, 2010, 10:29 PM
Thank you!! I love it too! :flower:

I also realized - now I have 100% virgin hair!!!!!!! No more highlights or henna

Anyway I am very happy and thank you everyone for the good vibes!

December 29th, 2010, 10:32 PM
It looks perfect! Makes me miss my short hair....

December 30th, 2010, 01:39 AM

December 30th, 2010, 06:24 AM
Thats a really beautiful cut! Can't wait to see it with some wave too :)

December 30th, 2010, 08:30 AM
That is a great layered cut!! Your stylist did a wonderful job!! Your hair will grow out wonderfully from this new cut.

December 30th, 2010, 09:18 AM
You look wonderful! Its so cute when you pull it back, too. Show us wavy pictures!! :)

December 30th, 2010, 09:27 AM
That is a great layered cut!! Your stylist did a wonderful job!! Your hair will grow out wonderfully from this new cut.

Too cool! And I agree with everything here. :D I'm so glad you had such a lovely experience and got exactly what you wanted. :cheese: Your hair looks gorgeous! As usual. :cool:

December 30th, 2010, 09:59 AM
Very nice! I had a similar style for awhile while I was growing out my pixie.

December 30th, 2010, 11:06 AM
She cut some cute layers and she didn't take much length off. It looks great!

December 30th, 2010, 11:47 AM
Thank you everyone! I agree the new length is perfect; she took off the minimum amount to make it look good proportionally ....I measured and it's a 1.5" difference in the back and I cant tell any length difference in the front. 1.5" in the back is exactly the amount that I thought would look good too although I didn't specify any inch amount, just pictures. It's still long enough for an updo which is nice but I'll be wearing it down a lot to flaunt it!!

December 30th, 2010, 11:49 AM
Looks good and very healthy! I'm glad you're happy with it :)

December 31st, 2010, 08:08 AM
Beautiful hairstyle :)

I finally wet my hair and got a wavy picture. I like the shape. :) Sometimes it's a crap shoot trying to get my hair to have a good shape.


January 18th, 2011, 12:26 AM
Looks great!

January 18th, 2011, 11:42 AM
Wowsers! Your hair looks so pretty. :D You are lucky to have such gorgeous waves so easily and naturally. I have these long S waves that you can't even notice until my hair gets a ways past shoulders. :p Have fun with your great and perfect cut, and that stylist! :cool:
