Hallo peoples...
I've just recently shaved the majority of my hair off, so I'm looking for some advice. <3
Here are some pictures of my hair past and present...
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f218/Multicoloured_socks/Stages.jpg?t=1189481014
1. About two-three years ago, my hair at the longest it's ever been. (Natural color)
2. After I got it hacked off... (Natural color)
3. My hair last year, with a bit of washed out blue-black.
4. My mohawk-ish.
5. After I hacked all that off. (bleached & dyed burgundy.)
6. What I have at the moment... Growing out & fading.
...So. Now that you've seen those, I was hoping for some suggestions of hairstyles... Some that would look good with my face shape? xD
I plan to grow it out to a bit above my shoulders now, but that will take a while, so anything goes/works! Thanks. <3

personally i think you look really good with it super short in pic 6. i used to have my head shaved and ppl would compliment me all the time saying they wouldnt have the balls to do it and i can pull it off really well. if you happen to like it, id say keep it. you pull it off really well.  Smiley

Hi everyone Grin
I have a question.. I want to cut my hair short in the back and spike it up but I was wondering what product to use? Gel or wax? I can't really see the difference so I thought I'd ask Cheesy Thanks Smiley

wax doesn't seem to really dry when I use it, but gel is heavy. It depends on your hair really

i agree with both said: wax doesnt dry down, and it depends on your hair.
still there is some things worth considering:
wax is more flexible, as it doesnt dry down. means your hair isnt glued, and it feels a more natural and can be restyled during the day (works even better when you cover your hands with a few drops of water). as its more oily than gel, it also doesnt dry out your hair whereas gel does. so if you have dry hair, you probably want to consider this.
with gel, as it dries down, offers more hold which might suit you better if your hair is a little too long for the weaker hold of wax, or if you have very thick hair, or you go for a very fixed, straight look.
i learnt from a stylist i worked with to rather use wax whenever possible, and she tought me, whatever you can do it your hair wehn it's still wet from washing, you can do wax too (sometimes a little more), but everything that needs strong hold is a job for gel.
i sometimes combine wax and a little hairspray, because i widely prefer how wax feels in my hair to gel (could you tell?).

I use something called Mad Mud from Beyond the Zone, you can get it at Sally or sometimes at salons.  It's basically a really thick paste you rub between your fingers to soften it up, then run it through your hair to make the spikes.  It works a lot like wax, but it's not greasy.
There's also something called Rough Paste from Redken that's basically the same thing, but a lot more expensive.

I don't like using gel because it seems to weigh my hair down too much... a few hours after styling it, it always seems to wilt and just look straight and greasy.  Not cool.

You can also make spikes just by using regular hair spray!  You need a lot of it though.  My favorite thing to do is style using the mad mud, then spray with a little hairspray to hold it, and go in with a little bit of wax in selected places to define a few chunks.  The wax I like is also from BTZ, called Air Wax, it's in a spray can that you can spray directly on your hair, but I prefer to spray it on my fingers then rub it into my hair.

Hope that helps.

I live in Iceland so we don't have the stores you mentioned but thanks for the tips anyways Cheesy I will probably get some wax and spray hairspray on it or something. I guess I will just have to experiment Cheesy

I have a question.
I want to have purple hair for Halloween. I don't want it to be permanent (well, actually I do, but I can't, haha). Does anyone know of any good washout dyes? I don't want to use those lame spray on ones, they never look good.
Any tips will be greatly appreciated!
