Spin Off: Hair Types: Whose Pictures? Please Participate!

Mrfhnl reminded us that the Andre Hair Type pictures are a little confusing and need to be updated.


If Gretchen and Michelle agree that we can update the pictures, the question is which picture should we use.


So, if we were to update the “hair type” photos would you prefer to see pictures of celebrities or pictures of our very own NC.com members.


If you chose "heck yes", would you be interested in a contest to choose which two NC.com member's hair picture(s) to post per hair type?


We need two curlies in order to represent that hair type at a short length and that hair type at a long length (as we all know the look of the curl changes with length).


If you do not like the idea of a contest, how would you choose the NC.com member?


Thanks for voting.




ETA: What do you think of one of these ideas (post comments below)?

Perhaps on the current Hair Type thread (the one with the link to the pictures) we could put links to the individual hair type threads that posted pictures.

For example, when people go HERE there will be links to 3c Pictures and other hair types (as far as I know only 3c and 3bs have pictures).

Does that make sense?

This way may be easier than trying to find new pictures of hair types.

I think that's a good idea. I don't know about a contest - I know the intent is to find the most representative hair of a type, not necessarily the nicest or best hair, but it might feel that way to some people and this site is supposed to be building everyone up. I think there should be a few pictures per type, to show the range, and there should be examples of "mixes" since so many people here fall into this ie. 3b/c, 3a/b, 4a/b and 2/3a. Otherwise, count out people like me who mess with their hair and aren't a "true" anything.

Just an idea, but what about showing pictures of 2/3? There are many curly wavies on here, and it can be confusing to know whether you are a 2, 3 or 2/3. On the same line, I think it would be really helpful to have some really good pictures of 3A and wavy hair for people to be able to tell which hair type they have.

Also (just an idea), what about having pictures of the different letters for wavy hair, like 2A, 2B and 2C?

Or that might be too many pictures...

I think that using NC.com members would be great, if the relevant people were agreeable.

The “contest” is NOT to choose the person who has the *best looking* or *most beautiful* hair because we all know that everyone on this site has gorgeous hair.

I only suggested a contest in the event that Michelle and Gretchen get flooded with pictures of that hair type. Also, some people say they are one hair type and according to Andre’s definition that we use on this site their hair belongs in a different category.

I also think we should leave out the “in between” people and choose the pictures that *most* represent Andre’s definition. It is not the hair picture’s job to show all of the ranges; people can do that on their own threads (e.g., the 3b and 3c threads have pictures of hair types). It gets too complicated if you show all of the ranges and mixes.

No one is going to agree on anyone else's hair type anyway and it's more objective to use celebrities (fancy hair dressing and all.) I think Nc.com members would be better if showing ranges but if it is only for what, 5, 6 pics, then we should just find the best, most representative celebs.

new thought - to give everyone a chance, avoid competitiveness/favouritism and show a range of hair, how about rotating the pics every week/month to show a few different people? So there could be several 3as, bs etc. who get shown and maybe the mixes can then choose their more dominant type and be shown as within that range.

You wavies could do what we did on the 3b and 3c threads. We posted pictures of people who have our hair type.

Right now, there are only celebrities but it would be awesome if we could get our NC.com members to post their picture there (even if it is the back of the hair).

Perhaps on the current Hair Type thread (the one with the link to the pictures) we could put links to the individual hair type threads that posted pictures.

For example, when people go HERE there will be links to 3c Pictures and other hair types (as far as I know only 3c and 3bs have pictures).

What do you guys think of that idea?
We're all born mad. Some remain so.

I just voted for celebreties, but I would be happy to see our very own curlies as exemplars too, if they give permission Rotating, per Amneris, also is a good idea...

Great idea to post the in-between types.... there are many!

Our own NC.com curlies definately.

That way others can get info and ask questions about a particular types products and routines. Two or three pictures as a sticky under each hairtype would keep it obvious. Gretchen and Michelle picking the photos (sorry guys, not looking to give you more work) satifies the impartiality issue.

With the celeb option all we know is that a stylist can make them look good.
I have finally realized I look my best when my hair tells me how it is going to fall, and I just make suggestions.

What do you guys think of my Edit? Is that suggestion non-discriminatory and easier?

Amneris’ idea is good too. Would it be too much work for Gretchen, Michelle, and the web designers to rotate the pictures?

I voted for NC.com members, since members' hair is not only gorgeous, but probably a better representation of how natural 2/3/4 hair looks (without the help of a full-time hair stylist).

BTW, the 3c thread that Cehua linked makes me sooo jealous!! That's my *dream* hair, but I will never achieve it, since my hair is definitely only 3a.
I voted for NC members too, but I would be happy either way

I agree with Plink and badgercurls and you Cehua! I voted for nc.com members because as Plink said, we can then ask specific questions if someones hair looks great. Also as Plink and badgercurls said, we know we are our own stylists!!

This is definitely a great idea.
2b/3a, primarily use Jessicurl and DevaCurl products, Curls Hair Tea conditioner and various gels. I'm modified CG-ish since 5/04.
I'm also neutral. As long as the pics represent each respective hair type(and maybe even the types in between), then I'm fine. But if I have to chose, I'd probably prefer seeing pictures of NC.com members.
A wonderful mix of coils, curls, corkscrews, and kinks.

Michelle and Gretchen are just going to love us! We are really making them work!
If they approved it, of course, NC.com members!
