What's your hair like?

I seem to have had a bit of a choppy bob (think Davina McCall)for ages. My hair is pretty thick, can be wavy or straight depending on how it's dry and is blonde. Thinking of either growing it or going short. Looking for inspiration - what's your hair like and do you love/hate it? How easy is it to 'do'? And what's the best haircut you ever had?

'how it's dried' - when will I learn to preview?

repulsive at the moment - like a messy hedge.

It's thick and straight. I keep it in a layered bob which is cut every 4 weeks and also have highlights every other month b/c it is so grey the over-the-counter colour kits couldn't keep up.

i LOVE my hair like this. it's flattering for my age and face shape and easy peasy to maintain. i just put a little styling creme in it and blowdry it w/my trusty babliss ion shine blowerdrier.

currently red, bob shaped with a fringe, only straight when I blow dry it. I get a funny tufty bit on the top when I don't dry it - and as I am slovenly it is often.

I've got long hair which I can straighten with irons or leave and have a bit of a kink. Don't mind either.

What I do mind is the blimmin' moist air which will turn either style to frizziness.

Have tried loads of products. John Frieda's frizzease probably best so far, but any suggestions welcome

blonde shoulder length and boring. side fringe when my hair decides to go right and usually straighten it when i go out.

I have great hair. No really I do! I am told so often, it must be true! Hey - it's the only thing I can blow my trumpet about, so I'm going to!!!

That, and the fact I had it done last night, so today, it's still long, and VERY red, fringe, shoulder length at the sides, tapering slightly to the longest length at the back.

I think people like it because it's thick and has a slight wave, so I can mess it and straighten it and it looks nice either way!

OK. I'll stop boasting now.

My hair is long, half way down my back its straight with layers round the front! It is blonde but has few brownish streaks through it but i am off to the hairdressers very very soon to have my roots done and have more brown streaks put in!
I got my hair cut into a choppy bob when i was 8 mths pregs and i loved it i am thinking of doing it again in a couple of months so much easier to handle cant stand all this blow drying and straightners!
My hair is straight but it has a tiny bit of frize so i feel like i have to straighten it to have normal looking hair ahhhh it drives me mad!

lilsmum Thu 28-Apr-05 21:50:50

long, naturally curly, and highlights through the top only, rest is brown

emmatom Thu 28-Apr-05 21:51:01

Catbert, please just tell me even your lovely hair goes frizzy when the air is moist!!!!

If not, why not?!!!

Toothache Thu 28-Apr-05 21:51:32

Definitely my only redeeming feature is my hair! Long, shiney, wavy, and at the moment, burgundy!

emmatom Thu 28-Apr-05 21:55:20

but does it go flippin frizzy in the damp?!!!!!!

Toothache Thu 28-Apr-05 21:57:50

Er... nope! I live in Scotland.... if my hair went frizzy when it was damp... It'd be permanently frizzy!!!

puddle Thu 28-Apr-05 22:00:39

Mine goes frizzy emma. Just so you don't feel alone.....

Used to have shoulder length naturally curly locks. So curly, in fact, that I was constantly asked if it was permed and they never believed I hadn't.

During the last year I had it so short I did a pretty good impression of a lesbian.

I'm now growing it.

AngelCakeUmm Thu 28-Apr-05 22:03:07

So does mine Emma especially when its damp its awful

emmatom Thu 28-Apr-05 22:03:22

thank you, thank you puddle! I feel so much better.

LGJ Thu 28-Apr-05 22:03:48

Blonder than it was 2 hours hairdresser has just left

AngelCakeUmm Thu 28-Apr-05 22:03:53

Queeneagle did you prefer it short or long?

emmatom Thu 28-Apr-05 22:04:17

and you angelcakeum. I'm going to buy some of that Aussie miracle moist stuff when I'm next in town. Worth a try.
