So, I've been considering a rather bold move as of late. I've always had very thick hair, and due to previous dye jobs, it's rather damaged. This means it takes a while to make it look decent if it gets wet. I used to have pink hair, but had to dye it back to natural brown and I'm too nervous to bleach it again. But I miss the funk factor. I'm going to be doing the underneath blue and blonde, but I feel like my hair will just break off if I do. I've got myself psyched up that when that happens, I'm just gonna shave that half off. =D Now, I'm considering skipping right to that step! I've played around with how it would look for coverage if my hair was down and it looks decent, and putting it up was 1000% easier and it looked kickass in pigtails. But I'm hooked on my nerves, so some feedback would be most welcome. What do you guys think? Have any of you had undercuts before? What insight can you give me? I ran a search here and didn't find very much.
ETA: To be more specific, I'd buzz it off so it'd still be brown (I figure I'd have some roots again) and not shaved to the skin, and from around my ears down in the back.
And for reference, here's what I look like:
And to demonstrate why it's so damaged, and to show I can rock some wild looks too:
