I was playing with my new haircut and decided to share the photos.
I’ve had it for about a month now, in fact I’m getting a trim next week. I’m still delighted with it and have gotten really lovely compliments on it.
Here is my “Before” picture at the salon before getting it cut:
And “After.” So you can see how it looked just cut and styled. (Thanks, Chaz, by the way, for a fantastic cut!)
The floor after the cut.
However, almost every morning, halfway through styling it I think “Oh, no. I can’t do it! It looks dreadful.” Or something similar.
Here it is, clean and just dried with no product in it. I’ve used a blow dryer on low while finger-combing it forward.
Hair that I’ve thought of as straight turns out having many more little curves and curls than I ever knew. There are places that go flat while others stick out.
Today I decided to see what else I could do with it. The photo quality isn’t great – I’m just snapping pics in front of the bathroom mirror.
Parted, combed back and slicked down.
Brushed back and out with my fingers with some product, plus a hairband.
A friend at work has been encouraging me to “hawk” it up. With some more product, flat iron, teasing and hairspray, (lots of hairspray), and I managed this!
I don’t think I’m really carrying this one off. But it was kind of fun to try it out.
My favorite style is the one I do every day. After it’s mostly dry (and I’m thinking it isn’t going to work), I tweak it a bit with a flat iron. The magic really happens when I rub a little Got2B In Play Sculpt Paste between my hands and then rub it into my hair. Not too much, but I usually use a bit more on my fingertips and play with some strands across the front, and the pieces around my ears.
The styling stuff is lightweight, smells kind of citrus-y and makes my hair look thick, healthy and not too fussy. Maybe even a little bit edgy.
Not too flat or too fluffy.
Thanks for your visit.
