Drive-by...

...I just got the haircut equivalent of a fifteen minute oil and lube job for a car. When I gave the nice woman my preferences (no shorter than my ears, long enough to be pulled back if possible but not a requirement, and will look good when parted on the side), which, to be fair, were pretty vague, I sat back and let the nice lady do her job. And now, I look like a fourteen-year old. I've always looked young, but this is just bad. Do a google image search on Mary Anne from the Babysitter's Club movie. I haven't done one, so watch out for porn and such. But if you can find it, that'll give you an idea of the blunt, perfectly even dome of hair that I have. It is completely symmetrical and just too lovely for me to post pictures of. I'm considering trying to chop some layers into it myself tonight. Because, really, didn't the all-one-length shoulder bob go out in the '90's? Any thoughts on hairstyles to disguise the mess that is my hair? This all started because my hair refuses to curl ever.

Oh. I see. I googled it. Yes, you probably look sweet and lovely, which is ok, but you know, know what you were aiming for.

I may not be much help. I've longed for straight hair but it curls.

How do you look without a fringe? Can you try blow drying it with some gunk in it and lifting it off your face a little? If you can find someway to lift it off your face, you might fare better.

Hehe, Ive longed all my life for straight hair too!

I hate it when that happens. Ive had it before too, most notably the day before my (first) university graduation! I cried for hours.

Do you have another ahirdresser you might go to for a bit of a fix-up? It might be worth the outlay. Or perhaps get a friend to help you if youre going to take the scissors to it yourself - someone who can see the back!

Good luck!

I quite like the all one length/symmetrical bob. I guess because I used to have one...but for the last few years, have had a layered sort of style. Stupid straight hair.

I'll chop it up for you if you want. It's a little hot here today but we can try....

Poor baby. I'll take some scissors to it, if you want. You will eternally be in the wind. Emily of the Emotive Hair.
