crwritt and rustina, both of you are my hair idols with these pics! I want your length and thickness. Alas, I will have to settle just for the length at some point in the future because thickness I am no longer blessed with.

crwritt, you almost look like you have 2 different heads of hair from front to back. That is so awesome-looking!

I am growing out my shorter top layers. I loved them for about a year including the trims to keep them that way, but now I want to have more of a long bob look and I really need to get those shorter layers down to chin or at least cheek length. Patience needed; not a virtue of mine.
