Cyndi, while you describe the sensation of your hair parallelling a mop, it looks naturally beautiful instead of frumpy, forced, and artificial. Nothing looks worse to me that a hairstyle that says "I spent my life in front of a mirror designing this." I much prefer a natural beauty who embraces who she is and whose hair is gorgeous as yours.

The style you have chosen may be one you don't chose forever. However, it's still new, and sometimes my personality grows with my hairstyle's braveness. I really like the new look for it's 20s spunk and sophisticated mood, without being stuffy. Few can pull it off, and you can!

I think your perceived disarray or mop, as you call it, is self-imposed. Sometimes, I feel like my hair looks messy when no one else would call it that. It's like we're still hearing the insults of curly hair and ignoring the complements.

You are beautiful. Your hair is beautiful. And you are becoming the woman you are.

I wasn't really saying my hair looks as bad as a mop -- that's just the easiest way to describe how it falls in all directinos without a part (kind of like an upside down mop).

Also, I'm not too sure about the fact that I look older. I went to see one of my clients today and the first thing out of his mom's mouth was "OMG - you look five years younger!" Not good!

If I can ask, how old are you?

I'm 24! (I think I said that already but I'm not sure)

I can relate! I think that you look about my age, though, and I'll be 24 next month. The way I see it, when you are this age, you can either look young or look 30! I'd rather look young! I feel sorry for all of the guys our age who are really starting to lose their hair...

I really like it both ways. I'm still not sure which makes you look younger, though (you look the same age in both pics to me)!

I'm impressed that you can keep those shorter, curlier pieces in the front under control! I wish I could do that! My front pieces have a mind of their own.
