View Full Version : OT -- Any hairstylists here?

I'd really like a new hairstyle, but I have no ldea where to look. I know stylists usually have those hairstyle books in their salons, but I'd prefer be able to go in there with something I already know I like, rather than looking for something I might not find. My hair is pretty long, about the middle of my back, and sort of layered, shorter around my face.

When I chopped off my hair, I went into B&N and took all the "short hair" magazines off the shelf and looked through them, and then I bought the one I liked and showed it to my hairdresser. And she didn't have the issue, so she bought it off me.

Well, what are you looking to change? The length? Color? If your hair is curly, do you wanna try to straighten it? If it's straight, do you wanna curl it?


Those are all little virtual makeover site things. I don't think they are really -that- useful, but they are fun to play around with sometimes. :rofl:

Oh, also, just do a google search for short hair style gallery, or long hair, or whatever you had in mind. Or, just hair style gallery for a nice broad look to help you narrow it down. :thumbsup:

Whenever I want a change, I always ask my stylist what she suggests. She has never failed me, yet. That is why I pay her the big bucks.

Um, maybe it was just me, but the stuff I came up with on Google was HORRIBLE. It looked like it had all been scanned in from some 80's glam hairstyling book. NOTHING practical. That's why I went to the magazines. At least they were current!

I'm adventurous....I always tell the stylist to do what she wants :wink:

I'm not a hairstylist, but I am a beauty school dropout. Does that count? I like the sites like iVillage where you can actually see the new you.

Oh Hildie, that is great! Isn't that Andrea's hair?

I went to Loreal Paris USA website and used the first model. She has hair colour and face colouring just like my natural. I did a whole makeover after I did her hair colour and makeup. It was a blast! I got my hair dyed and have colours in my make up now that I would never have chosen by myself. I trashed most of my old make up, some of it was really old anyway.

If you have a hard time picking what colours work best for you, try the Cover Girl website, it will give you 4 looks to choose from based on your colouring and what type you are, if you're a romantic, classic..etc.

Hair cuts... I just used a search engine for the length of hair cut that I wanted for my round face shape but when I got to Regis for my hair cut we decided that the hair cut I wanted was too short for a pony tail that I need for excercising etc. so she just did a longer version of it and it turned out great. Hair cuts shouldn't be just based on your face shape, but what all you plan to do with it and how much time you want to put into it every day.
