Oh hair...

I went to the mall today to buy some more aproprate makeup and kept on thinking about the "my new avatar" thread. I was looking for a real hairstyle that I can do right now (full time if I can) that would look nice.

I dug around and fell in love with this pic



My length and definitly my style.

You know how I look, so what do you think... simular facial shape, hair style...
BTW I would grow the back out but I love the front.

Mandy

I hate to be harsh here but I think that her hair wouldn't look too good away from the almond shaped face that she has.

Sorry

No dice. She's got the whole anorexic thing going plus the face is all wrong. Find a stylist (that doesn't mean SuperCuts) and see what they have to say.

Ditto what the others said.....I don't think that style would work for you. She has the face of Skeletor and it poofs out a bit on sides to try to take away from her anorexic jawline. You have normal sized face and it would probably end up looking something like a football helmet on you.

I've got to stand with the masses here Mandy. It looks too 'Kate Moss-ish'. Wouldn't work on you.

I think you guys are right, my hair just does not seem long enough right now to be styled very femininly without cutting... oh well. I guess I will have to deal with wigs for a bit longer. While that is a disapointment I will have to live with it. The best things in life can't be rushed anyway right!

Oh the styled you showed is frightful
But your looks are so delightful
And if you just stlye it so
Let it grow, let it grow, let it grow

Your locks they don't need toppin'
Just some hi-lites and you'll be hoppin
As long as you wanted to know
Let it grow, let it grow, let it grow

I think that the hair would look good on you and (best of all) would grow out in an attractive way if you decided to grow the hair out. For you, though, it'll look better if it's not so sleek. Ruffle it a bit. The streaking and style though would look good on you.

I personally can not stand short hair on any women. Long (at least below the shoulder blades), silky and full of body (curly or straight) and to really top it off, RED (Unless you are black, middle Eastern or any ethnicity that has very, very dark features) . Short styles remind me of old women which makes me ask the question, why do most women over the age of saaaaay.......45 (may be a little older) chop all their hair off?

Check out Elgin Charles in Beverly Hills. An ex-gf of mine used to go there. One of the reasons I stopped dating her (the whole high-maintenance, BH thing).

I'd like to make a suggestion you may have not thought of.

Jessica has a clip-on ponytail that she can use when she wants long hair. It looks and works quite well, and it's easily stowable for travelling.

Here's a pic of her normally:



Here's a pic of her with the ponytail (sorry I don't have a better one):

NO! lol. That's Brady, lead singer for Elevation Canada.

I wish it were me though. The guy weights like 140 lbs. I'd be a climbing fool at that weight!

Well I found the photo I was really looking for...




I absolutly love her hair, and when I smile I have nearly the same structure she has, hormones will make the non smile a bit firmer (with some weight loss)...

I dig the short hair, vw. I have short hair, too! If I had pics, I'd show you, but it's like this: back: tapered, hugging my skull, choppy looking; sides: taper wears off gradually until an inch after the start of my jaw, which then my hair follows my jawline; and front: bangs :B

Hey, my hair is freakin' cute. I just wish I could take a pic >:|

but either way you go, I think you'll look good... although I do favor the short hair...... :B

I like both style pictures. I definately think you look great with long hair though! I personally could never carry a super short cut. Like KT said you have to have the whole Skeletor thing going on for a cut that short. Maybe a sassy chin length...like a bob.

The hair is here...

I can not say how extactic I am about it... I feel so pretty with feminine hair. I was thinking I would go to guy hair at times but I love it too much!

The pictures don't really do it justice at all... it looks so nice is person... and makes me quite feminine without makeup, etc. Yes it is a bit short but I am growing out the sides and back to shoulder or mid back so it should look nice...

Enjoy!

As to the poll: Option 3 is, erm, unique, when taken literally.

Hmm, well, in my painfully honest opinion, the pics you posted don't look all that super-feminine... But you pointed out it looks better in person.

Also I have to admit I'm definitely in the long-hair-for-women camp. And I think you'd look best with wavy (maybe even curly) hair, not straight. Straight long hair usually only looks good on really really skinny women.

Except for the not-quite-natural highlights, I think the wig in your avatar is a really good hairstyle for you.

I think the reason that you say it does not look so feminine is because my hair is still not "that long", right now maybe 4 inches at the longest. That really gives the top a "boyish" look, as it gets longer and grows out up top (need about another 6 inches or so up top) it will get more "feminine" in appearance (the long flowing hair you see in most woman, and in the wig).

The hair has a good start now in the style I want it to go into. I can not expect it to grow super long overnight (baring extentions), although 6 inches all over will make a "huge" difference. I plan on letting all the hair in the back and sides grow out (once again the hair at the top is critical). I don't want it this short forever, I just want ti feminine enough to pass without the wig.

Mandy
