I hate the new haircut (so no need to be nice about it).

The pink hair pic on my profile gives you an idea of face shape.

The other one is the new hair so you have an idea of what we are working with!!!

My hair has a natural kink.

HELP ME!!!!!

I have an appointment on Tuesday to rectify it.

Tis quite short at back

i like the colour, you could also get away with dark i feel.

personally i like long hair, so if i was you id grow it, but hopefuly someone else will have good ideas

southeastalien Fri 24-Oct-08 20:35:28

i really like it, it's a nice cut

FlameThrowersKillZombies Fri 24-Oct-08 20:37:53

It makes me look much older and mumsy than I want

southeastalien Fri 24-Oct-08 20:39:29

but the photo makes you look alot younger than in the other one, and you can see your cheekbones

FlameThrowersKillZombies Fri 24-Oct-08 20:45:09

Ah but you haven't seen it today - I will take another pic in a bit and you can see what happened when I washed it wink

fishie Fri 24-Oct-08 20:45:31

i can see why you don't like the new hair, it is a bit too sober. but otherwise it isn't that bad in style, couldn't you just dye it? i have recently got a bob-type style after 20 years resistance and it does look quite nice grrrrr.

your glasses are pointing up at the outside whereas your eyes/brows point down. this makes you look slightly worried. they are great proportion but try them on upside down.

FlameThrowersKillZombies Fri 24-Oct-08 20:46:47

Alas I must wear my glasses rightway up - prescription different in each eye!

I have pink and purple dye sat here... I may play in the morning. It might help with some streaks

giddykipper Fri 24-Oct-08 20:48:27

How about going a bit shorter and flicky out. A bit like Anne Heche in that desert island film with Harrison Ford.

Helpful ain't I!

southeastalien Fri 24-Oct-08 20:49:44

i still like it, it looks shiney too, leave the colour it suits you

southeastalien Fri 24-Oct-08 20:50:06

if you want to be wacky wear bright eye colours

Flier Fri 24-Oct-08 20:53:30

I think if you can get it to flick out, it would funk it up a bit for you. Could you try doing this with straighteners?

It looks like a good cut, and the colour does suit you, but I know what you mean - it's a bit mumsy in comparison with your pink hair lol!

yogabird Fri 24-Oct-08 20:56:09

i like it and it suits you

brimfull Fri 24-Oct-08 21:00:39

don't dye it pink or purple,it makes you look pale

your haircut is fine I think it need some volume though and yes flicky bits would be good too

acoady Fri 24-Oct-08 21:09:51

I like it. Maybe tuck it behind your ears if you want it to look a bit younger?

Furball Fri 24-Oct-08 21:15:19

If you take the sides off

or chop into it

SlasherGoober Fri 24-Oct-08 21:18:20

Straighten it, run some wax through it.
I love you.

WingsofaBatEyeofNewt Fri 24-Oct-08 21:21:18

The colour looks nice.
Have you got straighteners ? Would make your hair look longer in the fringe.

FlameThrowersKillZombies Fri 24-Oct-08 22:33:32

Sorry - lost connection.

I wouldn't do the whole lot pink again - just a few streaks

Urbandryad suggested this

I will play with the straighteners in the morning and see if I can get it vaguely better.

I don't know why I hate it so much - it just makes me feel wrong iyswim.

FlameThrowersKillZombies Fri 24-Oct-08 22:35:09

Think I prefer "take the sides off" pic to "chop into it" pic.

Goober - love you too

RottenOtter Fri 24-Oct-08 22:39:41

i think if you just de- flick it with straighteners and use some ( hate the word) product to make it look more choppy/strandy then it will look fine

part it to one side

FlameThrowersKillZombies Sat 25-Oct-08 09:36:48

It looks like a helmet sad

I am wearing a hat until Tuesday, even on Tuesday I dunno if she will be able to fix it of it is will just be worse and even shorter. My hair is hell.

TheWomanWhoAteTraffic Sat 25-Oct-08 09:47:54

OOh pmsl, when I opened this thread I looked at the picture in the advert and for a brief moment thought 'it looks great'.

I think it's nice, I would try making the sides sweep forward with a bit of a flick.

FlameThrowersKillZombies Sat 25-Oct-08 09:54:23

I've tried flicking, non-flicking, straighteners, products - it has just gone all floaty and mad professorish
