If having an exotic name at an exotic sounding salon makes you a good stylist, this Carlos must be fantastic! It sounds like you're heading to Italy for a hair cut!

So what are you going to get done? Just a trim? Lose a few inches?

awesome!! I'm excited for you. I go in on Oct 17 and I know I'm climbing the walls!

I second Laura's question. So what are you gonna get done?

I'm sure you carefully selected this stylist and salon based on many many many points.

I can only imagine how nervous this must make you.
I would be scared sh*tless!!

For me I totally quit with the haircut (style) thing due to the fact that I can't find anyone I trust to do what I ask. I only get trims (little tiny trims) twice a year save for the bang thing.

Best of LUCK to you Rudee you deserve it!!

I have never had a curly cut before so I am super curious to see what he will do. My requests will be to lose some bulk, go for a flowy, cascading look that is neither round nor triangular.....

Plus, I have to talk him into letting me keep my straight bangs

Good luck and heres sending you great haircut vibes!!

Say; what do I do to prep? Just go in with my hair styled as usual?

Should I bring pics?

yes, go in with your hair styled as usual. if you have pictures, that always helps. if you don't, don't worry. carlos is the only stylist i comfortably give free reign to. but it is good to communicate as much as you can with him what you want, and pictures certainly help.

Hi Rudee
Maybe you can take your son along and have him video tape and upload on u-tube ! Just kidding!
On a serious note, could you please take notice of how he cuts your ends? I'm curious to see if it's cut blunt ended or tapered. I think i have figured out one of my hair problems and that my hairstylist has been slithering my layers with the scissors. I think this is what is causing a lot of my fly a ways
HAIR DESCRIPTION:
Wavy, Coarse Porous & Dry

Jeep, my hair has changed even since I last posted pics!! Its insane that almost 20 months CG and my hair is still transforming!

I will try to post some updated (aka curlier) pics soon, then pics post cut.

Ok guys, I am getting nervous. Like literal, queasy nervous, had a bad haircut nightmare last night, nervous.

As kharma would have it, my hair has FINALLY been looking good..... do I postpone the cut?!? But its been a good 6-7 months since I even had a trim and I think thats unhealthy. If the cut is great and perks up my hair I will be THRILLED. But if its a bomb, I will feel like " I KNEW I shoulda left well enough alone...."

I know this is normal and y'all lunatics have been here. Help me decide; or at least talk me off the ledge! My appt is THIS WEEKEND!
