Love it. It's taken years off!

My god. You look like your own daughter shock. The old bob was very ageing. The new 'do is fantastic on you. Love.

YellowStripe Fri 13-Jun-14 20:05:20

You are all officially my new best friends!! shallow

Gorgeous!

You look fab! I went from a bob to short hair a couple of years ago - really liberating and I love having short hair.

YellowStripe Fri 13-Jun-14 20:14:06

I've been going shorter for a couple of years - went blonde to hide the grey - but just fancied a real change and wanted to go back brown.

The length is due to the unglamorous reason of horrendous night sweats sad

Can't wait to have a drying time of (hopefully) less than ten minutes!

GiveTwoSheets Fri 13-Jun-14 20:16:12

Wow looks amazing and agree it has taken years off you!

YellowStripe Fri 13-Jun-14 20:16:17

Can you tell I'm thrilled, and no-one at home to share it with!

pissedglitter Fri 13-Jun-14 20:16:26

Cocolepew Fri 13-Jun-14 20:22:17

Love it! You look years younger

YellowStripe Fri 13-Jun-14 20:26:27

Ach, you're all being so lovely. Can't say how different it makes me feel - liberated and younger until the kids come home anyway

Yay! I think that everyone should get all of their hair cut off grin. I did it last year, and it's the best thing I've ever done.

I dry it for 3 minutes wink.

YellowStripe Fri 13-Jun-14 20:39:54

3 minutes? Brilliant!

Can you recommend any product? Wax? Fudge?

ballsballsballs Fri 13-Jun-14 20:45:38

I haven't used my dryer for nearly a year. I keep meaning to use straighteners on my fringe.

Fudge is good, also that putty stuff. You only need a tiny bit.

Nocomet Fri 13-Jun-14 20:48:49

It's brilliant.
Sadly I'd look like this.

My hair hangs straight, it refuses to stay in any style and it needs washing by lunch time.

WastingMyYoungYears Fri 13-Jun-14 20:49:11

My hairdresser used to sell me this for £10 - it gives really strong hold, and can be applied to wet or dry hair (I used to do both in a row).

At the moment, I use this for £20 - I like it as it's apparently more 'natural', but it doesn't give anywhere near as strong hold, and it's double the price and half the volume (so it's quadruple the price confused).

I had a look in Boots recently, I'll probably just try a semi-random wax / paste from there next time.

Ooh, I don't know anything about fudge or putty.
