I am thinking I will probably get it professionally shaped as well...I want more layers, but am afraid to start cutting curl by curl. But this ponytail method is GREAT for a quick "get rid of the crap that's bugging you" solution. So far, still pretty happy I took the plunge.

Salia, I am going to take your picture in when I go...that's how my hair used to look and I want it back!!!
