in desperate need of a restyle and I am rubbish at choosing at style and not that great at doing hair either
My hair is fine, but there is so much of it, it's thick takes FOREVER to dry, whenever I have layer put in it just hangs in great curtainey layers and looks shit. I need something that can be scraped up if needs be (new Mum to the anti-sleep child) help please, I've yet to find a hairdresser who listens to me say all of the above and then just chops in a few layers - WTF!?

my hair is thin but I have masses of it, chop it short but make sure you go to a good hairdresser (think gwynneth Paltrow in sliding doors) you can clip it back, takes 2 minutes to dry and because my hair isn't think I can wet it down and do a bit of a re-dry if its being stubborn. Should mention my hair is dead straight so scrap the above if you've got kinks or curly you'll be straightening for hours.

I kept my hair long enough to be tied up so that I could do so when I 'didn't have time' or whatever and tbh it was a waste. Dry shampoo is a godsend and there are other ways to disguise the 'I haven't washed my hair' syndrome. Might you reconsider the length? I find keeping short hair looking nice much easier than when it was long, and I do not miss the hours drying and straightening it one little bit. And I am less likely to not wash it now because it takes about 3 minutes to wash, 3 to dry, and 3 to run the straighteners through. Bingo.

I am seriously considering chopping it short TBH...it's dead straight aswell.
Have you seen Britain & Ireland's top model...I like Juste's hair but don't think it will look as good on my dirty blonde hair?

just had a look, nice but be careful if you have a small foreheard (I do) you won't suit it really short at the front. Also - if your hair is dead straight you can get the spikey 'chinese hair ' effect. If your hair is thick and has bend in it you can shape short hair, I had a fringe and forever had to curl it under when drying otherwise it would jut out - looks especially stupid if your hair is fine as if you put 'product' on it to flatten you look like a 17 year old boy with too much gel on. I've had my hair this short and it was a bit of a nightmare to keep it flat

when I say 'thick' in previous comment - I mean the actual hair strands, not how much you have of it!
