OK I'm planning to get my hair cut tomorrow but I want some advice before I get it done.
I dont really to hair, it's gets washed and brushed but that's about it. I'm looking at get a layered bob type cut but want to look more Kate Silverton than V Beckham. Is it going to take a lot of work to keep such a look nice? I want a bit more body to my hair (which is fineish, currently past my shoulders and flat as a pancake) but don't want to spend hours on it or have to use much (or really anything) on it to style it.
So am I living it cloudcuckoo land or will this work for me?
Please help!

Layers = blow drying everyday otherwise they lie flat in my experience or stick out.
I'd stick with what you have if you want to keep it simple.

Do people really blow dry their hair everyday? Real people?
Please does anyone have an other suggestions? I don't want the same hair cut again, I've had it (with slight variations) since I was 9.

Just past the shoulders is supposed to be the hottest length right now so maybe leave that. I am having a fringe cut on Sat, how does that sound? You could leave the length to dry naturally, and just blow dry/straighten iron the fringe [like Kate Moss, she leaves it a bit messy]

My hair Needs cutting, it hasn't been cut for a year, I spend 99% of the time with it tied back and I really want a change.

Rowrow - to answer your question - I know a real person (not me!) who delivered her first baby at home, but the placenta was retained. Whilst waiting for the ambulance to take her to hospital she washed and blow-dried her hair straight.

She does this every day and works full time. She goes camping but only where it is possible to have an electrical hook-up to her tent to plug her hair straighteners in. These people do exist.

I have never blow dried my hair in my life. I am 37. It is madly thick and curly and it even takes the hairdresser a good half hour. I have better things to do with my life!

Shower, towel dry, hair gunge, pony tail.

If I want it to look nice (and it can look lovely with a wee bit of effort, did this for my wedding even!) it's wet it, towel dry, hair gunge, plait into two pigtails, leave, take out and shake 2 mins before I get where I am going.

Madly thick and curly sounds great where can I get it wink
Sadly my hair is straight and general looks like I've been dragged backwards through a bush within minutes of brushing it. I agree with the wash, towel dry but go with the leave to dry and then brush and tie back.
Oh and it doesn't get wash daily as that would result in splity, dry, tangling straw.
