i've thought about this many times before! i like the before picture of both of them better. in the before picture, they both have wild, natural-looking hair. in the after picture, it looks too producty and "done" for my taste. unnatural and flat.

I voted for the before pic because i like hair to look a bit messy.
I think the before pic is a 'false' representation of frizzy hair, it has probably been made to look like that by a stylist.
If I get up in the morning with my hair dry & productless it looks a lot messier & knottier than that womans!

Exactly. Every time I notice that pic I never understand why the 'after' pic is supposed to be better. Looks very crunchy in the after pic. But then again I didn't care for the MT products I tried.

I thought they looked pretty much the same. The advertiser had to rely on the models making horrible faces in the "before" picture. What was that all about? It's pretty obvious that their expression has nothing to do with what's on their head.

I like both befores. They look more natural.

And those models in the ad are the owner(of Mop Top) and her daughter.

Too funny- I've thought of this many times. I agree that the before is nicer, for all the reasons others have listed.

Definately the before--especially the child's hair.

Definately before for both. It reminds me of my out of control hair!! The after is too much like the wet look for me
