Same here. I find that a short layered cut makes my fine hair fuller which I need with my narrow face. I tried long bangs the last time I got it done, and I really liked it, so I am going to get the same cut.
haha! That might be one of my favorite things you have ever said! I am sure that you are way prettier than her anyway.
Something else... I don't know may people that can rock a short hair cut like that, and you definitely do!
I'm a huge fan of short hair, actually, but I like it both ways.

I prefer my hair longer, but I have really fine/thin hair too and once it gets too long it looks really stringy and thin. last time I got a cut it was shorter than I've ever had and thought it looked really cute, but then I started growing it out again. I think I just need to accept the fact that shorter hair works better for me but I always associate short cuts with being old even though that's not really the case like it was growing up.
I used to have clip on extensions and they made a big difference for me. I've considered getting the more permanent type, but I know that I wouldn't take proper care of them and I worry about damaging my hair especially since it's so fine/thin and prone to damage.
not to mention they cost so much to maintain.
I've heard the same, but I've also heard that the chemical bond doesn't damage hair as much as a weave would. I've been too afraid to take the chance though.
Corinna - I have a ton of hair, and it's tolerable long if I get it very heavily layered and thinned out. If you have coarse hair, you can have your hair razor cut to do the same thing. (That doesn't really work well on fine hair -- you end up with a lot of split ends). When I had long hair, my hair cuts took about 2 hours but it was worth it because it kept my hair from taking on a triangular shape and I really only had to cut it 3 times a year.
Edited to add: I never blow dried mine when it was long. I just made sure my head was covered really well if I went out in cold weather with wet hair, and then let it air dry at work.
I'm thinking of growing mine out again...
I guess I'm really lucky with my hair. It's low maintenance. Sometimes I don't even brush it before heading out. I do need to find a stylist around here, though. Mine lives in Connecticut, so I would always wait until I take a trip home to get my hair cut. It's been over a year, and I don't plan on going back any time soon.
Robin, your hair is so pretty. You are lucky!
I have long hair that's pretty fine, but I rarely blow dry mostly just because I'm lazy. I don't really do anything to my hair, actually. I assume some day if I get a corporate job I'll have to look more polished, but for now I don't really care.
But also in every other way. You should see this woman slam a cockleshell into her sternum.
Actually you can see it. I think the Thursday show is free.
Mine really is too. But thinning it out helps a lot. My stylist essentially shaves out a bunch of vertical strips of it, before layering it. You can't tell unless you look through my hair close to the roots. It does start to get a lot bushier though after like 4-6 months, which is why I would cut it a few times a year.
With short hair I'm having to cut it like every 6 weeks. Sucks. It also gets really crazy looking within like a month of the haircut, because she no longer thins it during the cuts.
Yeah, I've jumbled around from stylist to stylist but there's one who really gets my hair. I need to go back to her because she works with the waviness instead of trying to make it go straight or whatever. I'm just trying to let it grow a bit more before I cut it again.
Yup, exactly. It took me 6 years to find a stylist who really gets it, and I adore her and don't know what I'll do if she ever leaves the bay area. Currently I'm seeing her out of some awful tiny artist work space in a warehouse in Potrero Hill, even though it's a hassle to go there.
The lady who does my hair is the mother of my daughter's boyfriend. She plays it off like she loves my daughter, but I have seen and heard some of the texts she has sent to my daughter. The most recent one had my daughter calling me and crying. It was really hard for me to sit in the chair and not say anything. I wanted to, but my daughter made me promise I wouldn't. I know I am eventually going to have to find somone new, this chick does my hair well and only charges me $40, but eventually the urge to tell her off is going to win.
Her son is one of those super moody unhappy guys. This is somehow my daughters fault. My daughter quit her job so she can do school full time, it's fully covered by financial aid and they even subsidize her income if she is doing full time of a combo of work, school and volunteering. So she pays more of the bills and grocery expense than the boy does, but batshit crazy lady sent my daughter a text saying "You need to get a fucking job and forget this school shit, I am tired of seeing my son miserable". It's just stupid, hey, I know you are trying to make something of yourself but your drive is making my son unhappy, so go work at mcdonalds...
I know, I need to shop around, it's just hard to pass up the deal. But honestly, sitting there for an hour is more than I can handle. Angry people are not for me. She is always going on about how fucked up her family is, how fucked up her friends are, etc. It's draining.
Ew. Yeah, stop going there. You don't need that kind of negative energy in your life.
