1  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Re: Beauty Sercrets Here on: June 12, 2006 02:37:56 PM
I would love to have my eyebrows waxed.
1. What qualifies 'good' shape?
2. How do I decide on a salon?

I just use my local more upscale salon... ive never had a BAD eyebrow job.  No ones ever asked for what shape i want- most of the times your brows will have a natural shape already that they go off of. picking a different shape can sometimes look akward. Generally they just clean up the lines and make them look uniform. I say just go for it, youll probably pay around 14-18$ for it. hell, they always grow back Tongue

Oooo thank you for the link! i know the place i get mine at does not sell straight ones, thats why i was curious. Ive never knitted a flat thing on circular needles though- i guess i dont understand how that is possible, but i will see what  i can find.

Thanks for the help, btw Smiley

I have several pairs of circular Skacel Addi Turbo needles, and as everyone knows- they are fabulous. I wanted to know if perhapse they make a straight needle, or if someone can reccomend a high quality brand that they enjoy? Thank you Cheesy
4  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Re: Show off your hair! And questions about hair styles! on: January 14, 2006 12:07:31 PM
I have some questions about extensions...

I made the common mistake of letting a friend cut my hair about a week ago (I have sort of an a-line cut) and she did a great job with the back. But when she tried to layer the front she wound up taking a huge slice out of the front of my hair! So now the front of my hair is just below my chin except for this one part of the right side which was cut bluntly just above my ear and just sort of flops there at my cheek if I don't pin it back. But it looks fine if I part my hair way over to the side (which I do normally anyway) and pin the front part down 60's style. Still, I don't want to have to do this all the time...I miss my hair so much, I was trying to grow that part out and I wish I'd never let her touch it.

So I was seriously wanting to get some extensions in the front. I don't know anything about these, except what little I've read, and I live in a small town so I doubt there would be any stylists around here that would do it. But I travel a lot, so I'd be willing to have someone in the city do it while I'm visiting. I was hoping that they could put a few in the front and layer it so that it doesn't look so noticible. But then I'm worried about the tracks showing. I know I've seen girls with extensions in the front before, but I can't remember what they did to keep those from showing. Do you think this is even worth it?

Here is a picture of my hair now...

The little piece hanging down under my sunglasses is how short she cut the entire piece. I'm in the process of dying it purple right now, but as soon as I finish I'll try to get a pic of what it looks like not pinned.

If extensions are entirely not possible, I need to come up with some type of cut that would blend the front pieces together. But then it would be WAY too short. Maybe bangs? Blah...I just grew out bangs a year ago, I really don't want them back...but maybe it wouldn't be so bad. Any ideas?

There is a type of extension you can get that there is no braid involved and you cant see the tracks, its called UltraStrands......i  have them because my mom does hair and she wanted to try them out, they are actually really awesome.  Each little section of the hair that comes in the pack has this stuff on the end and there is a hot tool used to melt the stuff and then the melted stuff is mushed into a small section of your hair.  I wish i remembered what the "stuff" was.  But anyways, i would really sugest them, i wish i had a pic of mine but my camera is broken. It makes me giggle  because when i first got them people at school were shocked that my hair "grew" so fast just over christmas break.....so i guess they must look super real!

The "stuff" is keritain and these are pretty expensive here where I'm at.  A full head of these extensions will run you about $400.  I guess maybe that just seems like a lot to me bc I'm poor and I get my hair done for free.....

And yes, you can just dye your roots.  It's actually bad to recolor over the sections of hair that have already been colored.  If the color on the section that is growing out starts to fade then you can pull the color through to the ends about 5 min before rinsing it just to freshen it up.

For a cheap and easy, and no-track option, why dont you just get pinchbraids underneath in a few spots to fix it? It wont damage your hair, and you can even do it yourself. The red and black will be easy to match, and it is inexpensive.  I can dig up a tut on how to pinchbraid if you are adventurous, but most hair places can do them for you.

And this isn't cookies, but I found it funny. My mom got a shit load of old syder, so if you boil it, it makes it ok to use again.

What is this mysterious Syder?

You are right, those types of dresses are certainly NOT flattering on everyone. I'm not sure how the time setting difference makes the look 'work' but it does. I think this kinda dress on anyone nowadays would look just a bit off. HOWEVER the dress is still fabulous, and i love WSS <3

I think the entire ensemble could be easily created with an altered 50's style swing dress pattern.

A pattern like this, http://www.sensibility.com/vintageimages/1950s/images/vogue1950s.jpg is rather easy to find, and you can just alter the top to match the same shape as Anita's, i think this would work rather well in a semi-stretch fabric, and you would need to make it snug to hug your top like it does on her.

I guess i would agree that washing my face consistantly - tends to leading to more breakouts for me. I never used to wash my face other than with water in the shower, and i dont now- I never break out unless it is from stress.
