It looks great on you - I'm sure you'll be able to get the back cut to look how you want it.  Perhaps the stylist is wary of doing something too dramatic if you haven't described it clearly enough.
 
Bizarrely I saw a woman last weekend who probably had the style you seem to be looking for (there was still length and movement at the front and sides but the back was cut close - not shaved - maybe 1 inch long about half way up the back of her head. 
 
But I wasn't going top go up to a comlete stranger and ask if I could photgraph her hair.
Its your hair, your choice and your decision

i have to say you have an amazing pair of eyes and your cut is very flattering on you  i really like the short front sooo many girls are getting the cut my wife has with the angle being too long in front this is a classic bob and the back is stacked nicely   i have to say if the back bottom part was about a half inch or so blended into the longer top then it would be the nicest bob i have ever seen    you totally have the face & hair for this type of cut............... A++++++++++++
can we see a back shot straight on?

Long with BLUNT bangs or ALL cut to lip length, I cant decide my favorite!

We have all wanted to ask to take pictures of another persons hairstyle but are always to afraid to ask. You are not alone.
 
I see what you mean about your hair style. I also love the length at the front but she didn't really angle the side up towards the back and layer the back shorter like the pictures you chose.  I still love your hair cut and think it looks great. It makes you look like you have a very elegant neck.
I would love to see a picture of the back as lovebobs has asked.
 
You never know next time you might get what you want,or when it is time for a trim (4-6 weeks) ask her to go shorter again. Show her the picture again and explain you want the back layered with shorter layer to create an angle up towards the back.
 
Anyway i'm rambling. You look stunning as usual. Keep us informed of how it goes. I love seeing the pictures of your various styles.
 
Cheers
S

That is an awesome color.  I wish my wife would color her hair but she refuses.

     Kay, though I'm a lover of long hair, I think your cut looks really good on you. That's a cut my wife had twice while in transition, and it was pleasing. Bob Big%20smile

looks very good that color...

so are you keeping it or is the back going to be cut shorter and higher up?

Alrighty, its getting cut in the next few weeks.


I did a horrible job at photoshop, but this is what I want to go for. Keep the length at the front, but have it more layered in the back. The back hasnt started flipping yet thank god, but I really want to lose some length at the back sides (nice terminology right?)

length right now...


photoshoped. lmao



thoughts? i'm dying it this weekend. lighter this time I think

That looks like it would be great.  My wife is contempating growing out her bangs long like yours to achieve the same effect.....she's not sure what she wants to do!  Here is what she has now.  I would love to show her what yours looks like when you get it done!  I really like the hiked up back!  Thanks and good luck
 
 
 
Here are some picks that she took to the stylist to achieve the back cut.

Definitely think it will look good more layered in the back.  Also think it will look good lighter.  Go for it!

ok. picture time!


so basically i used a color that was a few levels lighter than what i normally use. problem was my hair tends to lighten over time after i color it, so there wasnt really a big difference in the finished color

I'm planning on getting it cut next monday. i know i waited to long, because my hair looks pretty special right about now.

here's the new color when my hair is straitened



these next pictures are after letting my hair airdry

right side (these are the same color, first is w/ flash)


left side (same color, first picture is w/ flash)



back


front



whew! hope this doesnt bore you all. hopefully you can get an idea of the color because there is a mix of pictures w/ and w/o the flash. i cant wait to get it cut!
