    I need a haircut BIG TIME!!!

    Advertisements
    I haven't cut my hair since... Hmm... Last September. Its so long that it has no shape or style anymore. The (natural) curl no longer curls but its not straight. Its weird.

    Its too long to blow dry it straight every day. I need a hair cut but don't know what to ask for. I know I want to keep it on the long side (about my bra strap) but the last 2 or 3 places I've gotten it cut didn't make me happy.

    Anyone have any suggestions as to what I should do with this mess of a mane?

    That's exactly how mine was. I just got brave one day and went to a new place, told her "okay, no shorter than this, I want it to have movement and for it to be easy." I got lucky and I love my cut.

    Hope you find something you like. Remember though, it's just hair and it will grow back or you can get it cut differently.

    I just lopped off about 3 inches. I got more layers and got side swept bangs. At first it was a shock but my ends feel so much better!

    I tend to try and spend a little bit of money and go to an actual spa.. instead of someplace I just walk into. And I don't get the new girls, i pay a little bit more for experience.. it doesn't always work but for the most part I like my hair cuts.

    Pictures please

    I have naturally curly hair and unless it is layered (and I mean LAYERED) it looks like a hot mess. Maybe get some layers in back while keeping the length, that way the natural wave can come through.

    I may have to try that. The shortest I've ever had it is shoulder length and with my round face it didn't look so good.

    Last hair cut she cut about 4-5 inches (it had been a good year since my previous cut) and in long layers but there was no shape.

    I don't mind paying the $$$ for it if it will be something I love but the last few times I haven't loved it. I haven't even had luke warm feelings for it.

    I took these pics for 'Picture Girl' a few months back... November I think and I hated it. Now its about 3 inches above my waist and very BLAH!

    I'd check out some celebrity cuts. I know they have tons of websites that have them. You can just print off the picture and take it to your stylist!

    You actually have VERY pretty hair. However I am all pro-curl but if you don't like it then finding a style that can be easily blown straight would be the best. Like I said, I'm all for layers

    Good luck- and if you get anything done give us pictures! Def go to a hair stylist, preferably one who KNOWS your type of hair!

    Don't get me wrong. I like my curls when they actually curl but right now the curl is flat. Even when I blow it straight it has some curl to it for body.

    I think I'm going to try what R.Adkins and BJo suggested. I've been in a hair funk for a while and I need to get out of it.

    Thanks everyone for your suggestions.
