Thankfully, it looks much better today -- in other words, my cheekbone length layers did not curl up to my eyebrows today. I guess diffusing is out of the quesiton with this new cut! I'm happy with the cut, but still mourning my longer locks a little -- does this make sense?

That definitely makes sense. I went through the same thing when I cut off my hip-length hair to my collar bone about five years ago. I knew it was healthier, I liked the change, but I missed my hair...it definitely took getting used to. I'm glad you liked it better today, and I bet it looks great. I can't wait to see the pictures.

I am so excited to see how it turned out! I have wanted the same exact haircut for at least three years now, but I'm just too afraid. You said it turned out more round than you wanted, but that's sort of what I love about the hairstyle, it's roundness. Just wanted to say that I'm anxiously awaiting pictures, and I hope you love you haircut

Cyndi,

Let me tell you what I really think.

The before shot is cute and really pretty (I would love to have your hair), but the shoulder-length hair looks so young. I don't know how old you are, but you could pass for barely twenty. With your young, fresh complexion and spunky, bright eyes, you look very "green" young in the before shot.

In the after shot, you look more polished and sophisticated. You remind me of my fav hair person, Amy on Judging Amy (see http://www.cbs.com/primetime/judging_amy/ and note the photo at the top right and not the straightened one with her family). You look more professional for how young your face is, more ready to conquer the world and more established in the world. It's a more springy and fresh style, at the same time as looking beautiful.

Your old look was cute, but your new look is classically beautiful. I understand that it's quite an adjustment, but even if you only keep it this way for a little while, I think the style has personality and looks like something I'd see on What Not to Wear after a makeover.

Hi Cyndi,

I love, love, love the new cut! You have absolutely beautiful hair. I also agree with laurabeth's comments. I got my hair cut like yours a few weeks ago, and it does take some getting used to, but the curls look even springier when shorter. Again, this is a really great look for you!

Laurabeth: I know people usually don't say this .....but thank you sooo much for saying I look older! I was afraid it actually made me look younger. I'm 24 and people still ask me what grade I'm in! They look surprised when I say "I already graduated," and then I say, "...college!," and their mouths usually drop! And I don't even want to mention the number of times I've been carded at the movies! Also, my grandmother tells me I look like that chic from Judging Amy all of the time.

Everybody else: Thanks for all of you nice comments and support!

Cyndi, I also love the new cut! And agree with laurabeth, it's more professional. There is a lot of advice out there on the best way to wear hair to look professional, and sadly most of it tells curlies to straighten their hair. However, I think we can still be curly AND look professional with the right cut, which you now have.

Not only do you have awesome hair, you are very pretty also.

I'm taking your before and after pictures with me tomorrow when I go for a new cut. I loved the updated look -- more of a style, I guess. Please tell me if your cut is long layers, or whatever technique was used. Also, what do you do to get a little bit of height at your front crown area and to keep the hair back off your face? That's my dilemma! What product do you use at home for styling? Love your cut -- you look perfect.

Your new hair looks awesome, and I also agree with Laurabeth that it makes you look older and more professional.

I took the Keri Russell picture with me and the stylist said it was called at a "stack." She left the top layers pretty long to give it weight. I hope that makes sense. I have the same problem with my hair falling forward. I feel like a mop sometimes -- I don't really have a part, it just falls in all directions equally the way a mop does when you hold it upside down. I think I just pushed it back for the picture. I also had more height because I diffused my hair at the salon (she's a friend of my mom's, she cut my hair while my mom's color was processing, so I then styled it using her products). I put in a leave-in conditioner (I don't remember which one) mixed with some biosilk silk therapy and combed through. I then applied some Matrix Styling Glaze (my mom's HG BTW) and diffused, alternating between upside down and rightside up.

I just went off CG, so I just went back to my old styling products...Paul Mitchell The Conditioner and Paul Mitchell Hair Sculpting Lotion. However, my hair deosn't look too good today.

I don't remember what products I used in the before picture, but it may have been PM The Conditioner, some Aveda Brilliant Frizz serum stuff (not sure on name), and biolage gelee.

Cyndi, it looks great! I hope you're getting used to it by now. It looks very chic but fun too!

It does add a bit of "maturity" to your look. I can totally relate to being taken as a school kid (not now, but years ago). I once had this elderly lady come up to me while shopping and ask why I wasn't in school. She proceeded to start lecturing me and my mom, and we explaned that I was way past my school days! LOL Believe me, when you get past 35 you'll appreciate it!

I know what you mean about being mistaken for younger. I'm also 24 and I don't even wait to be carded anymore. I have my I.D. out and ready Two years when I was 22 I went to a movie and before going into the theatre, an usher said "you have to be 17 to see this movie." This was after I had already shown I.D. at the ticket window. I'm also only 5'0 tall and I find that the combination of looking young anyway plus being short sometimes makes people talk to me as if I'm a child. I have a salon appointment for tomorrow, but don't know if I want to go too much shorter. My hair needs some length and weight for control. Maybe a different more "adult" style is what I need. I'm not complaining too much I'll be glad for this when I'm older. Maybe I should have a more sophisticated cut now and then when I get older let it grow out more.
