What's a cut with the word "sauvage" in it?
I went to a Yugoslavian hairdresser who told me that to make the hair coming from the crown of my head stand out more (since usually only the hair on the sides of my head does so) she'd be giving me a "rbalreiauvazzh" cut. "A what?" I asked. "A rbioaer893azzh. It's French for 'wild hair.'"

Now, I know my French, so I understood that the last two syllables had been "sauvage," which means "wild" (as in "natural" or "primitive").

But that first word, which seemed to start with some sort of R, but might not have, because the second time it seemed not to, was completely unintelligible to me. It seemed to only be 1 syllable, so it wasn't "cheveux," the word for hair, or even "cheveau," the word for "strand of hair."

Are there any hairdressers here? People who can ask around? What is this "_______ sauvage" cut actually called? I'd like to look it up on Google and find out more about it! (Since it turned out not looking good at all on me and making my curls go straight in 2 days instead of 4.)

"Coupe sauvage" coup or coupe is cut (like Coup de Grace).

P.S. It was REALLY popular in England in the 80s -- but they called it a "knife and fork cut" because you looked like that was how you'd cut your hair.

A more modern example would be like those cuts like an anime character...if you messed them up. basically shaggy, ragged and sticking up.

Oh yeah, that's another thing I meant to mention: it didn't sound like "coup" or "coupe" either.

So is there anything else, or is that definitely what she was trying to say?

Was she speaking French or Yugoslavian?
Seriously, call her up and ask her. Only she knows for sure. :?:

I have absolutely NO idea of the cut, but maybe you can call her & ask her to spell it for you?
