Same question different girl with a curl

Hi all,

I'm new of course looking for some advise. I have had the same hair cut for almost 8 years and am looking for a change. I'm a new mom and get my hair pulled just about everyday. I'd like to cut it shorter but have a few questions/concerns. I'm afraid of how my curl is going to react once cut, I'd like to still wear it in a pony tail every now and then and what style should I go with for my face shape?! All these questions should be reserved for my hair stylist but I have yet to find someone who is competent. Every pro I have been to blows my hair out after my cut. Can I ask them to cut my hair dry? I could use some help!

Thanks so much!

Ana

Did you read the other link? You should totally do it yourself. It's really easy and idiot-proof.

You can adjust the length you cut it--so start off by cutting it longish, to be on the safe side--just by putting an extra hairband underneath the one holding the ponytail, and then slide the second band down an inch, two inches, whatever, then cut underneath it.

DIY works well for curly hair, which is very forgiving about rough-cut edges and actually looks better with a sort of ragged line. I'm guessing that with some of your weight taken out, you will find your wave pattern bouncing up closer to your roots.

Hi JessMess,

Thanks for the reply. What other link are you referring to? I would love to read it.

Thanks for the advise. I'd love to try DIY cutting! It would save me so much time/money. With a 9 month old every penny counts! I lost A LOT of hair after my pregnancy and its still growing back. Especially in the front for all to see. I call them my shorties. I figure if the rest of hair is short it won't look so odd or at least I wouldn't feel so odd.

Thanks again!
