I was also traumatized by a bad haircut. In 8th grade my mom thought super short would be cute, and I ended up being mistaken for a boy. Not cool.

I still feel like it’s just hair, it grows back, so I try not to stress out about it. Whenever I want a new cut I just ask tell my hairdresser to do something new. She’ll run whatever it is by me, but I haven’t said no before. She’s the pro, I trust her!

I just went for my post wedding chop yesterday!  I went to a friend who also had done my hair for the wedding.  I let her choose what she thought would work best for my hair and face.  I wanted body, volume, shape, but keep my same length (below shoulders). 

She did an awesome job and I love it!!  I’ll try to post pictures sometime but my camera isn’t working too well right now…

Since my hair is so flat that layers don’t help and instead makes my hair look chopy, I talked to my hairdresser and I am going to put in extensions. For once I will have beautiful long full hair. Look in magazines and cut out pictures that you like, your hairdresser can help you change your look based on the pictures and your hair type.

@roxy821: You know what? I think I just had an epiphany because of your post. My hair dresser always gives me layers for volume but when I style my hair it looks SO choppy and I hate it. Next time–no layers!

i’ve used one of those virtual hair style thingys. i think instyle has one on their website. that helped me to visualize what a potential style could look like on me. but whenever i actually change my style, which is rare, i always bring in pictures for my stylist and discuss with her what i like/don’t like and get her opinion since she knows my hair fairly well.

@heatherloveskenny- I am really bas at hair so I never make my layers look full like she does, so I’m hoping to extensions will give me fullness (I hardly have any hair)
