    Posted: February 23 2007 at 9:21pm
My wife has finally taken the plunge into a shorter haircut.  Above the neck bob with long bangs.  She loved it and now wants to go a little shorter in the back, i guess an inverted bob or stacked up.  It took her over a year to get up enough nerve to cut it like it is now, and she looks great.  So i am scowering the internet for pics for her.  From a husbands perspective, what can i do/say to ease her anticipation/fear of the shorter cut that she really wants but is fearful of.  I would love to see her with a angled bob that hikes up in the back.  But i dont want her to think that i dont like what she currently has.  Sorry for the ramble, but i hope someone knows what i am talking about.  Her hairdresser thinks the same as me, should i chat with her also about how to ease the wifes anxiety?
 
HELP Please, for my wifes peace of mind and my own.

If she is anything like my wife, you are in a no win situation.

Conrad, If she's thinking of going shorter anyway it will look like you are supporting her decsion. When you show her what you would like, say you like her current style but think the new one would look even better on her. Before you know it she'll have booked an appointment and can't wait to jump in the stylists chair. Go with her for support so you can watch the cut too.Big%20smile Inverted or stacked would be fantastic. Post some before and after picture too if you can.

What is the difference b/w an inverted bob and a stacked bob?
Sorry, but I cant determine what the difference is, any picks would be helpful.  I would love to see  a clipped nape on her, but that would take some time, well take baby steps.

ConfusedHere are some picks that we have looked at.
 
 
 
Inverted? Stacked?
 
 
 
My wife is comming back in town today and is planning to go to her stylist sometime this week.  She got her hair cut last week and complained about the back being too long.  So i am trying to plan on how to show her the images.
 
Thanks in advance for ya'lls help!

Conrad I love the picture from the KL (Kristina Lenko) website. Very cool. If you could get your wife to have that style it would be fantastic.
Just say to your wife that you know she was moaning the back was too long so you went on the internet to try and find the style she had discribed so she could show the stylist when she went back.  Keep it as close to the truth as possible, as lies just get out of control and she will smell a rat.  Plus when you show her the picture you could point out your favourite and tell her that you think that style would look particularly good on her.  You never know your luck, she might agree and get it done. 
 
Good Luck and post some pictures if your don't mind of your wife with long hair , her current style and hopefully the one you want her to have.
 
All the Best Wink

Conrad,
 
I don't blame you for smudging the picture my wife would kill me too.  I have a picture of another style that might suite your wife but i don't know how to post it.  I tried copy and paste but no joy. If you can tell me how to post them, i will post it next time i'm on.
I see she means by a bit too long still. It's that in between length but still suits her.  I have a feeling she would look good with most styles.

At the bottom right corner, there is a "post reply" button (next to the new topic button), NOT the quick reply button.  Click on that and in the center row of icons, there is one that is a tree.  this is the add image icon, just click that and browse to where the pic is, then hit upload and "ok" then it should work.  You cant do it in the "quick reply" mode.  I had to try and figure that out also, i cant wait to see the pick.

 
Thanks in advance.

 As you wife has a sort of fringe (bangs) this might look better on her. What do you think?

Thanks a lot for the pic, my wife loves it!  She wants to know if there are any pics of the other side of her head to see what the other side does to show her hairdresser.  It resembles Sarah Hardings new shorter do, see picks......Does anyone else have an idea of what the other side should look like?

Grease%20Youre%20The%20One%20That%20I%20Want%20Screenshots%20Week%20OneMy wife is currently going from a shorter cut to bit  longer (eye level) to now between earlobe and chin.  I have always liked the inverted bob look but different stylists haven't cut the back correctly so she thinks she doesn't want it stacked again.  Yet when it has been done correctly she looked great and it grew in nicely.  We were watching Grease - You're the One that I Want and she noticed the pharmaceutical rep and liked the haircut.  What I noticed was that when the girl danced and swung around the haircut was angled up in the back.  With some effort I was able to grab some screenshots to print and send to the stylist on Thursday when she goes.  She already took some pics that I video taped off the TV (pretty crappy) and the stylist starting cutting it to grow in that way.  With the discussions that have been occurring I thought Conrad (and maybe even lemonlime from another thread) might appreciate the screenshots for all around views.

Thanks for the photos, can you tell me what her name was on the show, and will try and find some more picks.  I like the way they look, expecially the last row!
 
I will forward to my wife tonight.
