I've had a few good'uns in the past but it is now long and rather boring. I need to find a picture to take to the hairdressers (will worry about finding a hairdresser later).
1. something with a fringe (have funny shaped forehead)
2. something that looks good with very very fine, very straight hair (it didn't used to be straight, but is now due to the very dry air here. It goes curly if i go to the coast)
3. something low maintenance - it's as much as i can do to keep the stuff clean-ish, so don't want to be faffing around with hairdryer/hair products)
4. pref something that flatters a slightly long oval-ish face
Can it be done? does anyone have any idea where to start looking for piccies?
PS would go for a crop if I could (I know i said no hair products, but if it's short it doesn't seem to be so much bother) but DH has vetoed that plan on the grounds that I used to look scarey when i had my hair cropped.
Have you tried buying magazines and looking through to find a style you like. When you go to the hairdreesers take lots of pictures with you and they should be able to tell you which style wii suit your requirements.
...also for that reason I mistrust the local hairdressers slightly. I've had 2 really bad haircurts here (and one good one) compared to no bad haircuts in the UK. The good hairdresser is a long way away though.
How about leaving it to the experts. I go to Toni and Guy and literally just let them do what they like they just have a knack for suiting your haircut to your hairtype and face.
Well they do in my case. A little more expensive but I've always been pleased with the results.
