Love. I habe stupid crazy thick hair too. It’s a really drastic a-symmetrical choppy , layered, A- line directional bob. (Lol, I am a cosmotologist!) natural in color. My “hair-spiration” is Frankie Sandford from “the Saturdays!”

The opposite side in short, the back gets longer as it curves to the longer side

@EmilyFall:  I don’t have any pics right now but I usually HATE my hair. It’s medium-to-long, very oily so I have to wash it every day, and very thick and wavy. If I don’t blow-dry and straighten it, it turns into a frizzy mess. Right now it’s really hot where I live so I can’t be arsed blow-drying it, so I’ve just piled it all up on top of my head.

I haven’t seen my natural hair colour since I was 13 – at the moment I dye it chocolate brown, which is a little bit lighter than my natural colour of ‘blah’ dark brown.

in the first pic you look a lot like Rachel Miner!

And I rarely have good hair days 🙁 ive been dying/cuting/ straightening my hair for the longest so yeah not good. But there is potential . I love the bottom of my hair the curls are loose and defined plus it feels healthier. I figure if I’m good to it it’ll look good so I have been laying off the bleach& heat.

I hated my hair for quite  while. It was too long. I felt like a kid. Or at least a college student which was not professional for a teacher who already looks young! It felt amazing to chop it above my shoulders 🙂

@Treejewel19:  Your hair is AMAZING! I love it! 🙂

@weddingbound:  Yours is gorgeous, too!!

I used to love my hair when l lived in my former city and had access to my very dear and trusted friend/expert stylist/colorist who had been taking care of my hair care for more than 15 years. 

After relocating to a small town in a rural area of another state following my marriage to my Darling Husband, I went on a search to find someone who could cut and color my hair in a manner that I would like.  After visits to four salons and five stylists (and some not-so-good outcomes), I finally found someone I really, really like as a person and whose skills are probably among the top in this market. However, my color is still much  lighter than I am used to seeing on myself, and, unfortunately, the cut just isn’t as precise as the one my friend and former stylist is well versed in creating.

I hate my hair right now because I’m trying to grow out a pixie and that’s always a rough process. It’s requires creativity, products, and patience to not look completely frumpy during the awkward in-between phase. Too long to be a pixie, but too short to be a bob. A headband helps keep some of it tucked behind my ears. As long as my ears poke out and the bangs are sideswept enough, it’s not a Justin Bieber bowl cut! Oh, and I keep having to trim the hair at the nape of my neck until the rest catches up to avoid the mullet. Pics soon…

As far as texture goes, I have very straight but very thick hair. When it gets a lot longer it’ll be the perfect kind of hair for interesting layers. Because it’s so thick, it can be prone to tangling and you wouldn’t think so because my hair is straight and smooth. Using conditioner daily helps. Sometimes I wish I didn’t have to fight with my hair to give it body or volume.

1st day fresh hair:

Day 5 hair (right before it gets washed again):

@EmilyFall:  I love my hair. I’m happiest when it’s bra-strap length, but my longest layers are all the way down my back now. I have a hair appointment soon and may keep the length, but ask for way more layers. It’s thick, and I only wash it/style every 5-6 days. I’ve posted fresh hair and fifth day hair above! I’m growing out ombre right now, and I maintain my colour by getting some balayage highlights just for some dimension.

To style, I blowdry with a huge round brush, then use a 1.25 inch barrel curling wand to curl the bottoms.

I love my hair most days. Its long, thick & I use box color to maintain the color — People ALWAYS comment on my hair, and assume its extentions. Im very lucky to have such great hair, although I wish it was a bit more textured and not so fine.

nowadays my hair looks like this:

Its flat! Soooo flat. And so fine it won’t grow more than 2 inces below my shoulders. And it’s “naturally frizzy” so I have to blow dry and style every other day. 

Anybody have advice for really really bad static flyaways?  My hair is fine and thinning (old and medication). When the heat comes on in the winter I always have occasional static but this year is insane!  The hairspray on the brush trick works for one stroke before re spraying. Bah humbug!

@letigre:  i LOVE your hair! What do you do to keep it looking good that long?? I’ve been using Redken’s “Refresh” dry shampoo, which helps fight the greasy look a little, but by day 3 it’s both too greasy and too itchy to go another day! My hair is long (like I can tuck my longest layers into my pants long) and thick, and I would love to only wash it every 5 days! Tell me your secret!Innocent
