I'm in need of some hair advice.

I'm going in on Tuesday for a cut and want something different... but I'm not sure what I want. Shorter for sure.

The bottom of my hair is quite damaged.. you'll notice in pics. Partially from lack of hair cutting [I haven't gone since Sept], partially due to perm [in Sept], partially due to hair dye [in Feb], and partially due to harsh shampoos [I have psoriasis on my scalp]. So I need something that will get rid of the damage, but not too short.

Here is how I normally wear my hair... hair up in messy bun is my saving grace right now [ignore the sign  Wink]

The rest of the pics were just taken and I'm just sitting around the house so I'm not looking so hot. So don't mind that. Just focus on hair.   Grin

Here's the length. The bottom is darker than the top because of how the hair dye took, but this pic shows it in its extreme because its still partially wet from the shower.

Here's the back. This shows the bottom color a little better.

I am up for pretty much anything when it comes to a cut.
I can't afford to get it dyed right now... I'm just looking for a cut.
So... face shape... curly hair... any ideas??  Smiley

Foreversandals, with curly hair you pretty much have to either wear it really long or cut it super-short--anything in between looks like Sideshow Bob. My face is shaped a lot like yours and I had mine cut in a super-short "Rosemary's Baby" style pixie crop for a long time and it looked really good. You have feminine enough features that you won't look like a boy, just make sure that it's cut into a pixie cut and not some awful boy-style cut with a part or something. Also, a pixie cut is pretty extreme and losing all that hair will be upsetting at first, so you might want to think about it for a long time. Tongue

sarahpanda: Thanks for the tips. I'm afraid to go that short with my hair. I've never had hair that short and I think the jump would kill me.  Undecided
I was wondering if something like this might look good. I can never tell with my face shape or even what my face shape is. All I know is that I have chubby cheeks.  Grin

That curly hair style is stunning.  I'm sure if you brought it to your stylist, she could give you an opinion, too.

For what it's worth, I always thought Regina Spektor had nice hair, even if her bangs were a little short sometimes.  Maybe something like that?

i've always thought chin-length curly hair was super cute and am envious of those curly haired girls who can pull it off.

also, love the hair pictured.  i think it'd look fabulous on.

i care about you a homemade oven mitt's worth.

Just keep in mind, when you cut 1/4 inch off curly hair, it is like you cut and inch off because of how it shrinks up!

Soo, I haven't been on here for the longest time, so I went through about 20 or more pages. Everyone has such pretty hair, I must say.

And I have some questions of my own.

I'm super indecisive about everything, so I don't follow through with new hairstyles for months after thinking about it, but I plan on doing something to it this week. My hair is alomst to the middle of my back, and it's quite thin. I've dyed it 20+ times. Usually from every shade of brown to black. Nothing too exciting. Right now it's brown/back. Quite dark. And soon enough I plan on shaving my head so I can go back to my natural hair and just leave it be for a while. It used to be the naturalish dirty blondish brownish strawberry blonde w/ hues of red color before any hair dying occured. You know, natural multi colors. I've always liked my hair darker, but now it's getting too boring. So instead of trying to go back to my natural color like I have unsuccessfully done before I think I will dye my hair brown on the top, reddish in the middle, and platinum-ish on the bottom. If my indecisiveness occurs again I might just try to go to a dusty brown color which might match my natural color when it grows in and so here's my questions:

1. What type of bleaching products/bleach kits tend to be best for someone with dark dyed hair?
I've had hairstylists do it.. and well it took them hours, and it burned like hell and it never went too light.. I know it's best for them to do it, don't get me wrong. But i've also had them tell me I have very healthy hair for having all the crap done to it that I have.. and I know that I know my hair much better than any hairstylist ever will. And if it gets screwed up I'd much rather blame myself for it than putting my hair into someone else's hands.


2. Do any of you have any tips of how to go about dying your hair in sections like I intend on doing? I know it'll be hard to do and take a while, so I'm willing to do the hard work.

and randomish question.

Is it really so hard for perms to be done on someone who has such processed hair when their hair is still supposedly "healthy"? I've been told it is. and if so I don't plan on doing that to it.

Ok, so I know that was super long, and I apologize. I know a lot of people only go here to look at pictures and words aren't so fun for them. But if you read any of that and answer anything I will be very thankful. Smiley

In response to your question #2 -

Vaseline really helps me when I'm trying to keep a certain color from hitting the rest of my hair. It might take a lot of it because your hair is long, but you could use that.
