p.s. just make sure you're firm with the stylist about avoiding the Natasha Kaplinsky mullet look!

I couldn't agree more with you Trophywife, Natasha Kaplinsky has had the same awful pseduo mullet for years, with the same blonde highlights - its so eighties.  Oh for a good stylist (or even a pretty poor one) and a pair of scissors to get their hands on her would surely result in an improvement.

Angelbabes - If your unsure how short to go - think whether you are normally the "adveturous jump in with both feet" type (go for the cropped look) or "a more conservative measured type" (in which case go short).

Also if you have ever had short hair in the past and have some old photos, looking at them may give you some thoughts as to what you definitely do want and what you don't, as both are equally important.

Keep your bangs and get something that you can play around with. So that you can curl it or spike it or do whatever to it easily. Your base color is nice, don't change it...just get highlights or something.

Well it looks like virtually all your hair is coming off at the weekend.

If it looks half as good as the picture you will look absolutely stunning

The only bit of advice regarding going this short is you may need to be very insistent with your stylist given the magnitude of the change. I'd suggest taking the sim picture along so that you can explain exactly what you are after.

From looking at the sim picture I'd say the back would be somewhere about 3/4" long at the bottom of the nape and probably increasing to 1.5" at the top of your ear level.

This may sound daft but one piece of advice that a hairdresser I once knew used to give was to put your hair up (e.g a ponytail or similar) on the morning of the cut such that you get accustomed to the look of short hair before it is cut.

Another thought I'd heard was to make sure you wear an outfit that makes you feel comfortable and special on the day - so that you walk out of the salon feeling good.

 

Its your hair, your choice and your decision
