Hair cut

Postby sammykins » Wed Oct 19, 2011 12:48 pm

Hi ladies,

I have just booked an appointment to have my hair cut by someone who is, from what I have read, specialised in cutting curly hair.

I am TOTALLY scared of having it cut. I've always had rubbish hair cuts, most hairdressers just don't know what to do with curly hair and reach for their GHDs quicker than I can say "hello" when I see them!

Now, I've pretty much always worn my hair up because I can't do much with it, and although I am glad I have found someone who apparently knows curly hair, I am also terrified of having a different hair cut. Do I sound weird?!

I'm turning 30 next week, so I though I could start the new decade with a new hair cut, but I'm petrified!!

Any words of wisdom?

Thanks ladies!

Curly hair here, but was a daily GHDer til having DS and have since had to revert back to curls, which are more waves now after years of GHD abuse!

One thing I would advise, as this has happened several times for me, is make sure they know you wear it curly all the time.

I like to get my hair dried straight at a salon just because it makes a nice change and I can never get my hair to look like that. I usually time a hair cut so that I'm going out that evening or something so its not wasted on a night on the sofa in front of X factor!

But the trouble is they dry it straight then do the finishing touches with the scissors, for me this usually means shaping it a bit around the front. So at my last hair cut whilst it looked nice and shaped whilst straight, when I washed it the next day the shorter bits at the front spiraled up to about an inch long and just look ridiculous! So I am now in the process of growing it again so that I can go back and get it cut short but not too short at the front. Grrrr.

Good luck!!

Oh one more thing, my mum who has much curlier hair than me has gone to the same hairdresser for years and she originally chose her because she had massive curly hair herself, a curly haired hairdresser must surely know how to cut curly hair?!

I sympathise with you I have wavy hair which has got worse as I get older. Finding a decent hairdresser is a nightmare! I have rung hair teaching schools to see if they could recommend anyone.

Thanks ladies!

I'm going to be brave and keep the appointment and hope I won't be disappointed!

Teaching schools is a good tip beaglelady, thank you!

And thanks bloomy too - I will make sure he knows I wear my heair mostly curly.

Well, I took the plunge and had it cut quite short (well, short for me anyway!).

I love it! I had it straight for my birthday party on Saturday, but have had it au naturel (curly) since then, and it is lovely. Because it is shorter, my curls are much more defined and bouncy as there isn't so much weigth on my hair anymore.

It is really different and everyone has commented that it really suits me, so I'm very pleased.

I'm going back next month to have highlights put in (probably red or copper!)

I should have done a "before" picture so I could have shown you the difference!
