Overall it's a here, but not really badly. It seems to leave the longest parts too long, and the shortest parts too short. My hair is very curly so thought I could get away with it if it wasn't perfect, it has grown out a bit now but the shortest layers are still too short to tie back, so if I'm not careful I look like I have a poodle balanced precariously on top of my head. Might do it again but longer, and then just take more off the back.
I have very curly hair too so have slowly done it little by little. There are some bits that are too short and other bits are too long but I'm confident enough to sort it out myself now. Has saved me a fortune!
well, for a couple of years anyway. Saved me an absolute fortune but I got sick to death of the look of it in the end.
I always did an adapted version though - first all the hair to the front and cut to jaw-ish length, the sectioned and cut again. Put the front out of the way in bunces, section at ear height, put everything below ear height in ponytail at the top of the section, pulled forward and cut at about fringe length. Then a wee section across the bottom at the back, in a ponytail at the top of the section, pull forward and cut again at about the height of my hairline. After all that I'd sort out my fringe freehand and maybe do a small section behind my fringe for layers around my face.
Is impossible to get any length off otherwise, unless you do it really short of course. My hair is fine and totally and utterly straight.
Double here for me and my DD. I also take care to leave the layers quite long. It's been my saviour after 30-odd years of crap haircuts (a la the 'why can't hairdressers cut curly hair' thread), and has already saved me about £150.
A very big for me. I have a round face and poker straight hair. BUT I do agree that the length of the longest layers is too long, so I put the pony tail on the crown of my head rather than nearer the forehead.
