Default Need encouragement - got it cut (replied w/ new pics)

Okay so a couple of months ago I cut my hair into a shorter layered bob. It looks GREAT straight but a little "cutsie" curly. I need to figure out a way to do the front so it doesn't look so much that way. If I go the way my cowlick naturally goes it gives it that cutsie look, so I'm going to try doing a few curling iron curls in front.

I really want to go back to mainly curly every day. When I style it I'll post some pics & maybe you guys could give me some suggestions??? Thanks!

Kimmy



I DID NOT use the iron in the front today - i'll try that tomorrow
I really think it needs cut "up" more in the back for a more stylish look

Well Kim, let me just tell you that you have been one of my hair idols since being here. You cut your own hair, change it's color often and anything you do with it is always adorable. In fact, let me make a couple confessions. You were the one that gave me the courage to cut my own hair. I've done it twice now and it's been better than any of the hack jobs I'd been getting. Confession 2 - I found a deva trained stylist not too far from me, I have an appt. this Saturday with her - I've printed off 3 pictures of YOUR hair to bring with me!!

If you don't trust your own opinion, go ahead and trust ours! Play with your hair and post those pics - I can't wait

Although I haven't yet seen pix of your new cut, I'll say that I really like your hair curly. You look great with both straight and curly hair, but I truly think the curls are more flattering, and definitely more unique.

Okay so I went in today to have the back "cut up" more! It was a total spur of the moment decision since I didn't have the kids w/ me all day - I figured why not! Here's the pics!

Thanks guys - I'm liking the cut to.

Kewee - this is "nice & easy" medium spicy brown (has a hint of red in it). It's a little dark but always fades quickly.

Looks great, and not at all cutesy in my opinion (either before or after). Wish my hair had that much curl at a short length.
