Hello darlings!

I need some help, advice, suggestions, a yes or no, etc...

I'm tired of my boring, dark brown, curly, layered hair.

I'm thinking a nice drastic a-line and a lovely V-bang.

However, is that even possible for the type of hair I have?

Not to mention, my forehead measures two inches from my hairline to my brow.

So, I'm pretty sure that it's possible that I can get the bangs, and I read a post from someone on here that they had a small forehead and had more of a U-bang than V-bang.

But would it look right on me?

I have a fat head, so I don't know.
Back to the a-line...

I'm thinking pretty drastic if I can do it.

The longest part would hit either in the middle or below my chest, and the shortest would be a bit of a layer mid-ear, which of course would be fluffed out.

Is it possible for a curly and thick haired, not to mention fat headed girl like me to achieve this look?

Would it look superbly-awesome if I had this cut and dyed two pieces in the front or the whole head a forest green color?

Would the hairstyle look alright if I perhaps... 'forgot' to straighten it?

And even if it would work...

Would I actually look awesomely awesome sporting it?

^Fat head.

^Fatter head

^Less fat because the Brillo pad is covering it.

^Because it's cool?


And for some well deserved comical relief, I bring you....

^ EZ START, donkey in disguise!






Thank you for your time. =)

P.S. Sorry for the outrageously large pictures, my computer is not being very cooperative today.

Your hair is so cute already!  Cheesy

I think A-lines can work for anyone though, you just have to work out how drastic it should be and how you're gonna maintain it. Sooo, my advice would be not to go too drastic straight away, but get more and more of an angle as you get used too your new A-line. I think it would look good as a medium-length A-line, about two inches below your chin, and just to your nape at the back- you can either shave the nape or have it nice and feathery. As for v-bangs, a fringe would look great on you, but a U-bang would probably look even better. It's still a V-bang, just a bit more rounded.

As for having thick, curly hair, the thickness works well for extra volume. Curliness is fine too, but it will look a lot better if you straighten it. I've seen some stunning curly A-lines, but generally the most gorgeous of A-lines are poker straight so you can really see the angle.

As for dye, my knowledge of strange colours is pitiful. But I like the idea of just dying two front bits, or maybe even your new fringe- it's a lot easier on your head not to bleach the whole lot of it!

*lol* I have the opposite problem, in my attempts to have cool punky hair I now have your standard graduated bob and look like Betty Boop  Roll Eyes

Here's all the pictures of pageboys on Google if you haven't already tried there:

And as for what you can say to your hairdresser, my advice would be to say you do NOT want it to look dramatic/ drastic so she knows you don't want a punk-looking a-line, and also stress that you want it blended- that way you won't have an obvious angle in your hair, you'll have lots of layers instead that are a lot softer-looking.

If your hairdresser's a rather punky person and that's why you're getting wild hair, a change of hairdresser might be a good idea... if you go to a preppy hairdressers you will most likely get a preppy look Wink
