Oh man. The cut looks like it has great shape, but you're right -- it's poofy. The same thing happens to me EVERY time I get my hair cut, to the point that I've started to schedule cuts on days that I don't have anywhere else to go. Then, I can sit at home with my hair up in a ponytail and total forget it ever happened.
Can't wait to see the finished result once you've pampered it!
