I don't want to be mean, but I would definitely, definitely have a pro do that cut. My hair was cut somewhat like that for a while, and I have the whole thick hair thing going on too. My stylist knew where to thin out my hair to make it lie flat, where to cut to make it all even, and all of that jazz. Shop around with the picture and I'm sure you can find someone to do that cut for you and make it look awesome. Oh, and I think it would look great on you, by the way. Smiley

Hi there, everyone. As you know, today is the 16th, which means sendouts are on Monday, the 18th. Please PM me if you know you are going to be sending late. Smiley Thanks!

What's the rate on a flat rate box, now? I don't know.  Undecided
44  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Re: Come one come all post your new tattoo IDEAS! on: August 15, 2008 08:50:06 AM
For the longest time I have been thinking about getting a sword and butterfly together somewhere, but I don't think that's really going to happen. It would be a memory tattoo, and after thinking about what that would really mean, I don't think I'm into it. Don't get me wrong, getting tattoos in memory of people is a fine idea, but my tattoo couldn't watch me graduate or walk me down the aisle or advise me when I buy my first house or have kids...and that's why I'm now leaning towards being against the idea.

More recently, I've been thinking about getting cherry blossoms somewhere. Cliched? Ehh, I like them. They would probably be in a more artistic/painted-on type of style rather than a traditional style.

I would also like to get a lyric from "Cells" by The Servant. The lyric is "All I do I wanna do with you"...or "want to"...depends on your preference, I guess. Smiley Anyway, The Servant is a favorite band for a lot of my friends and I, and the song is very beautiful. I really like how it talks about being in love and doing the things you love to do while balancing that with being grown up and having to live a more adult life with mortgages and cooking dinner and such. I also think that if I got it, it would also represent my love for my boyfriend of two and a half years, although I don't want to get something that is only associated with him unless we break up or something.

My boyfriend is thinking of getting some type of half-sleeve devoted to anime and manga, which, while I think it's a little dorky, could also be really cool if he chose the right combination of characters and had a great artist and such. I've tossed around the idea of an anime/manga tattoo as well, but I think mine would be a symbol instead of a character...like the symbol on Ed's jacket in Fullmetal Alchemist. *dork who loves FMA* Cheesy Someone I know has that symbol behind her ear and I think it looks really cool.

The last thing I've thought about getting a tattoo for/about would be my desire to become a social worker and my reasons behind choosing that career path. I had a really awful childhood and teenage life, and while I've been working towards getting over that, I also want to keep it in my mind because it's one of the motivating factors behind my going to school and getting my degree to work in a child protection field.

Oh, wait, there was one more thing, but I'm sure all of us crafters really secretly want one - a crafty tattoo. Mine would be of a crochet hook and a ball of yarn, with some type of crafty text to go along with it.

That was a lot. I'm sorry; I think about things waaay too much. Smiley

I'm no expert on hair, but if you don't want the sides shaved and instead want 3-4 inches on the sides, aren't you kind of looking more for a fauxhawk type of thing? I would keep it long all the way through front and back for the mohawk part, but that really depends on how much effort you're willing to put into styling it...

Depending on the stylist you have, your description might be good enough, since it really sounds like you know what you want and you're pretty specific with it. It might still be a good idea to bring in a picture of the topknot you want to be able to do, though, and I'll look around for some pictures too...however, if you bring in 2-4 pictures that each have different parts of what you want in them, you can show them to your stylist and tell him/her which parts you like as well.

Try hairfiles (http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v480/hairfiles/?action=view&current=hairfiles.gif). They're pretty awesome for that type of thing.

I don't know if anyone checks in here anymore, but I'm wondering if someone can give me some advice. Basically, I went to the hairdresser today and got a decently cute cut, but somewhere in there she chopped one part of my bangs off so it's really short (well, too short for my liking).

This is with the short part being held back with a bobby pin, because it's waay in my eyes and everything.  Undecided I think it looks cute with the pins in, btw, but I have an eight a.m. class this semester, and I'm not going to want to get up and do ANYTHING with my hair.



Anyway, I got to thinking about it, and I thought...hmm. Well, I've always wanted to try out straight bangs, as they seem to be "in" on younger people again.







(Those are the ever-so-beautiful facelikeallama, indieanajess and cats_pajamas, by the way.)

So, I took some bobby pins and stuff and attempted to make a "demo" version of the bangs I'm interested in.





One picture has them farther up my forehead. The other doesn't. Also, I look ever-so-pleased in both of them. I know.

Anyway, my question is: can I pull these bangs off? If I got some, they would probably be a little bit thicker and I would probably then dye a blue or purple stripe in them on the right side, because while I am sick and tired of having plain hair I don't want to go all-out this time.

Any advice would rock! Cheesy Thank you!

Hey everyone - needers, as I'm sure you've probably figured out, sendouts for your thank-yous are tomorrow. If they are not sent out by then, you will receive precautionary negative feedback that will be reversed when you send out your package...so get those packages out the door! Cheesy

It sounds like you guys are having fun! Cheesy It's really weird organizing a swap but not swapping in it - it just feels like I'm just letting you guys do your thing. Anyway, I'm still here, so if you need anything, just holler. Otherwise, yes, ten days until sendouts! Smiley
50  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / My take on the very pretty puffy slouchy hat... on: August 07, 2008 08:10:35 PM
...in purple! Smiley



I love this hat so much. The pattern is so easy to follow, and for someone like me who loves to wear slouchy hats, it looks a lot different than your typical tam. I'm sorry about the blur; I was balancing on the tips of my toes in front of my toilet to take this picture. Cheesy

Here's what it looks like on my head:



And here's my attempt at taking a picture of the side of it; it didn't work very well, but you can see details of the stitching pretty well:



If you've thought about making a slouch hat out of this pattern but haven't found the time yet, you definitely should make some time since it really is an awesome hat. Smiley
