About two weeks ago i had my hair shaped into an asymetrical bob. I like it, it looks ok, But its just not funky enough for me!

I want something a lot funkier and shorter? just not sure what to go for or what would suit me.Im willing to try any lengh!

Perhaps bangs to?

Even willing to try a different colour.

Heres some pics as it is now:

The shorter side needs to be a lot shorter.  Over the ear and close cropped.
I love bangs and with your beautiful eyes...they would frame them perfectly.
Maybe you could dye the tips of your hair a color...blue?

Loveshorthair hit it right on.  I totally agree with that.

Thankyou. I would love to go for blue, but i am 27 now and am trying harder to work my way up in my office career so unusual colours are out. Im thinking perhaps a nice shade of red, a lighter natural red.

I love the thought of doing a cut similar to this on you. Would give you the volume and keep the color (which I love)....


These could work also....but quite a bit shorter

With as fine as your hair is, I would suggest going with the shortest one (last one on the bottom). Would give you the volume you need and would still keep you edgy!!! -Brian

I think im going to go for something like the 2nd or last picture. Just need to find a salon i can trust to do it correctly.

I vote as close to the last one as possible. That would give you something different from what you have but it would still look fantastic. Best of luck, after pictures are always appreciated too

Yes.  Agree, more contrast in length form short side to long side... bnbivi00's pic is a good color.  Yours it too light and too 1 dimensional... too flat looking.  Low light in some deeper shades to give depth and feeling.  Image referenced above creates interest through texture and color.

The red faded out very quickly.
I went shorter with the bangs.

Posted By: blondiealyx
Date Posted: December 27 2011 at 9:20am
Hey! well i had it cut. But they did not go short enough yet again. Kind of getting annoyed with it now. I really want to go short on both sides now and leave it long on top with lengh through the top aka like rihanna had at one point. I would love both sides clipperd but the hairdressers dont seem to want to go with it!


Posted By: blondiealyx
Date Posted: December 27 2011 at 10:02am
i would love to go for this style:

Im going to look around for a barber? perhaps someone whos not afraid of the clippers...hmmm

That is a very cute cut-go for it. I have found that it's almost impossible to find a stylist who is willing to go this short on a woman. We lucked out and found a stylist who worked for several years as a barber on an army base, so my wife now gets her hair cut as short as she wants, no hesitation from the stylist. My advise is to find a barbershop who has some women clientel, and they should be able to cut your hair as short as you want it. Good luck, and remember, we love pictures.

Either buy some clippers and do it yourself or go to a regular barbershop...also take some pictures...hard for them to not cut it short enough if you have some pics to show.

Ok well ive got some clippers here.Ive made a mock up by tying back the sides with a band to show how it will look. Im thinking about going for it myself?

I made the top curly aka rihanna style.

Blondie-x,
I would look for a barber if your sytlist would not do the cut you ask for. I do plenty of clipper cutting for my wifes friends who enjoy short hair but have fear of a barber shop. If you look hard and see someone witth a style you like do not be afraid to ask them where they had gotten it cut at. I get my hair cut by a friend who' father owns the barber shop and when I go she is always busy. My wife will at times get her hair cut by her. Bottom line your thought could be what you want, I would go for it.
Mike
