Narcissistic but…

Captures that ebullient feeling of the beloved new Haircut, and makes me think….could I?

    Your eyes would pop. But I do love your hair long as its volume and thickness is such a wonderful counter to your tiny frame.

    This haircut kinda blew me away too – especially as a curly hair girl. I really liked how much movement it had – never stiff always on the go. Kinda the perfect definition of cool. I think every woman should go short once in their life just for the adventure/feeling of lightness.

    (I’m planning on doing it when I can reliably afford straitening treatments)

    I’ve had my hair like a graduated bob with lots of curls and I love it (buzzed up the neck, but angled so as to hover above the collarbone at the front). I need a cut at the moment real bad…I tried to make an appointment in early sept but OCt 31 was the first day my stylist had available. Holy shit super annoying but obviously worth the wait. I’ll take a pic when its cut again, but yah, her styling makes me confident that curly hair can be cut so short with so much goodness involved.

    Ella…you should really look at getting the straightening done at a hair school. My bangs were like 30 bucks, and they said roots to keep on it was 50 or something and it all depended on the length of your hair. That cut has really really short sides, so it would be very little of your hair that gets straightened once its chopped.

    That being said, I love your hair so much it would be weird to see you without its big puffy pillows around you.

    Yah…part of me is really thinking about going straight and shorter…not that short but above my shoulders for a while. With half of it shaved it wouldn’t be all that expensive/time intensive. But, with all the changes lately: 1. New adult/semi-prestigious job 2. finishing school 3. new city 4. new apartment, that altering something that my identity is pretty strongly wrapped around feels ultra dizzying. The hair-school suggestion is a good one, do you remember the name of the treatment? was it Keratin or Japanese straightening?

    Here is what I understand…

    Keratin is more of a relaxing treatment ( I believe Garance posted about it once). You still get some curve to your hair and it isn’t stick straight. I got japanese which results in stick straight hair that will never ever curl again. So straight, that the first week or so is hell cause your hair sticks out like chopsticks straight out of your skull at the angle at which they were treated. My bangs shot forth about 2 inches above my forehead in a flat board until enough new growth could soften the root and allow the hair to hang. From there you have a few weeks/months as the untreated root is pulled taught by the straightened hair. It worked for me, but my hair is way less curly. Also, my horrible first week effect may have been due to the fact that I was at a really cheap hair school. I still think it was worth it.

    Oh, and you can’t get your hair wet for a few days and you mustn’t pin it down/push it back but rather leave it like the sunburst of hay it has become until the treatment has set. If you pin back your hair during the sensitive faze, it will stay with a groove where the pin was. This is all info they didn’t give me until after the treatment which was pretty damn annoying.
