think a half head just does the hair on the top (ie the top most layer of hair) whilst a full head does all the hair underneath too

so if your hair is long its just the top most layers that will be highlighted

Or just the left side maybe

or just the front .. after all you only see the back when you have 2 mirrors

lol thanks, i was just wondering cos i was given a leaflet through the door saying half head for £30 so thought id get them done for my birthday. although if i wanted to just have the hair underneath done rather than the top, could i have that done?

I think you'd look divine ks

tammybear, I would have thought you could ask for whatever you wanted, but maybe the underneath bits are harder to do, and they might charge more?
