Here's a sad little picture of my DIY inverted bob.

I really do love it! And I've gotten more compliments on this hair style than I ever have in my life!

Thanks! Though I blame the fever. I'm sure if I hadn't had a fever, I wouldn't have tried cutting my own hair, much less by putting it all in a ponytail and chopping away with the scissors

I cut mine into a bob a few weeks ago. I did it on impulse (and I really wanted to try it!). My hair appears much shorter now...I was trying to go for more of an inverted bob. I'm going to let it grow a bit more before I have it touched up some. My invertedness isn't that noticeable.

I really like everyone's new bobs. Very inspiring.

I flat twisted the back going up and shrinkage took care of the rest. LOL! So there you have it, the maintenance and look of the beloved curly bob without the commitment.

I love it and do consider myself part of the "curly bob club".

That is so neat. Your bob is lovely.

I am seriously contemplating cutting my own hair into a bob...I figure if I mess it up, I can always get it fixed. Right now my hair is about armpit length and I notice that I am constantly wearing it pulled back or up in a twisty messy knot. My cue that it's time to cut the hair is when I'm always wearing it up...so I guess it's time!

It will be hard though...because I do get a lot of compliments on my curls. I have a small face, so I actually think shorter hair agrees with me more. Stand by! I need to go get some hair scissors first...don't want to botch it too terribly bad!

I did it....went pretty conservative and the hair (wet) is about shoulder length. Wanted to make sure I didn't screw it up completely before going any shorter. Stand by for final results!

This thread is one of my all time favorites.

I just had 4 inches cut off and when it's time for my next trim - you all have inspired me to do it myself.

I know I promised pictures, but I worked all weekend and I think I'm going to cut a little more tonight anyway. Stand by!

Once you start cutting your hair, it's hard to stop!

Ok, I got pics up on my fotki....Public Home | Curlymomo | Fotki.com, photo and video sharing made easy. (no password).

I think it turned out pretty good for a FREE, self cut! Actually, I like it better than a lot of salon cuts I've had.

So, I really need to get a professional hair cut to get a proper shape and get rid of my relaxed ends...
