Conrad, I have this cut and I hate it. I have lots of hair and it doesn't flow right. Instead the inverted bob looks chuncky. I've been trying to grow it out since last summer and it's been a long process. I would really consider the weight of her hair before trying a style such as this one. Trust me, It just doesn't look good.

Hey Conrad,  The beauty of the pics I included is that they are all the same cut with different actions and two different days.  Which I thought showed how the cut can look in real life not just hairmodel world.  The other pic from snippette you mentioned was pretty close just more rounding.  Have fun.  I think this has been a nice distraction during tax season.

Which one do you have?  The Snipette or tba's.  My wifes hair is not really thick or weighty.  Do you have a pick that i could show her?
 
Thanks

Conrad,
 
Wasn't today the big day Smile
 
How did it go?  Did she go as short as you wanted?  Did she get the style she was after?
 
Let me know how it went.

Well, she cut it shorter in the back, kinda of an inverted bob.  It looks greatBig%20smile  Didn't do the stacked thing in the back although, not sure why?  But my wife likes it and that is all that matters.  She called when she left and said that "she(the stylist) cut it all off"  Which translates into a little shorter than last time.  Not sure if the back is undercut or not, i took a break from taxes to go eat at chucky cheese with her and the kids, so i did not get to do any "running fingers thru her hair" to see the length. 
 
She is happy, so i am happy.  Im sure, just like the last time she got it cut, that she will want it to be shorter or stacked in the back on the next go around.  I figure if she likes the cut, but it was not what she asked to have done, we will contact her friend that usually goes to New Orleans to have her hair cut, and get the name of her stylist.  We usually take a trip to N.O. (new orleans) after tax season, so maybe a different person will do something different, if she wants to.  Who knows?
 
Ill try to gets some picks and post them, maybe a few days though, and ya'll can shoot your opinions.
 
End result -  she is Big%20smile, i am Big%20smile
Thanks!

You're hoping she'll go even shorter Wink LOL
 
If she's willing then fine just becareful not to push the issue.  You have to almost make it seem like she though of it. Big%20smile
 
All the best, but i'd be happy if she just got the cut she said she wanted last time.

Found out why the cut was not like the picks.  My wife forgot to put the picks in her car before she went to work.  So she described what they looked like to her stylist.
 
She and I both like the cut, its shorter, which is what she wanted. Big%20smile

Her hair color changes shades quite often.  Nothing dramatic, just more or less highlights, red, brown, blondish.  She did go red one year like Renee Ruso(sp?) in the Thomas Crown affair.  That was a good color on her, and she like it.  I would love to see her blonde, but her stylist said that it would not go well with her skin tone (kinda olive - she tans great!), and that would be wayyyy to much of a change for her. 
Thanks!

Would you mind posting pictures of her other hair styles?  Sounds like she changes often.

Here is a link to a few that I found the other night.  I didnt get a digital camera until about 2001, and the only ones that i could find were from 2005 until now b/c i back the older ones up on disk and they are in my safe.  Not enough time in the day to do everythingLOL
 
 
 
BAsically the same style, just shorter and a different color.  Could not find the Red haired Renee Ruso picks, they were most likely shot with 35mm and i would have to find them and scan them in.....maybe later.
 
Thanks
