Default Amy Adams in the new Night at the Museum movie

It's probably a wig, but I love her hair in this movie.

I doubt I could ever find a stylist who could pull this off, though. If I tried it, I'd probably end up looking like an old lady who went in for a perm.

I think it's the length of the layers; not too short. Someone good could give this cut, don't you think?

I saw an article today and it had a really nice shot of her hair. It's really, really pretty and anyone with thick hair should be able to pull it off.

That's just it--I don't know of a stylist who is has the know-how and skill to pull off a cut like that. Every stylist I've been to lately, even nc.com-recommended ones, leave me with a frizzy, poodleish mess that doesn't look good even when I use my own products and air dry. If they can't handle even a medium-length curly cut, I shudder to think what I'd end up looking like if I asked to have it cut short. One of the reasons I gave up and grew my hair out is that I was getting incredibly bad short haircuts that either failed to cover my ears (soooo not a good look on me), or were too poofy at the crown and made me look like an old lady.

Still, I can dream. lol

I talked to one stylist about going a bit shorter (chin length, versus the almost-to-shoulder length I've been wearing for months), and she said she didn't want me to get "triangle head." That has never been a problem for me because my hair, though curly, is relatively thin, but I took that as a sign that she doesn't know what she's doing with curly hair. The next stylist discouraged me from cutting it shorter because I mentioned that I sometimes pull it back in the summer. Yea, that's partly because of the humidity, but partly because no one can cut it so it looks good! I'm glad she was honest with me, though. Again, I took her comment as a sign that she can't/doesn't want to work with my curls.

I've learned the hard way that just because a stylist is smart enough to flatter her client by saying she has "beautiful curls," it doesn't mean she knows what to do with them.

That reminds me of the cut of Elisabeth Shue's hair in "Hollow man":

I know this is a really old post, but I ADORE this cut and got a reasonable copy of it done on myself. I still LOVE it...it's basically what landed me here in NC!
