A Bad Hair Day
Posted 07 November 2005 - 03:08 AM
I NEED HELP.
FOR MOST OF MY ADULT LIFE I HAVE HAD VERY SHORT WELL GROOMED HAIR WHICH WAS ALWAYS NEAT AND TIDY.
LAST CHRISTMAS I DECIDED TO GROW MY HAIR IN THE HOPE THAT ONE DAY I MAY HAVE ONE OF THOSE REALLY ELEGANT STYLES - A PLEAT OR CHINON, WHATEVER.
IT IS NOW AT THE LENGTH WHERE IT IS DRIVING ME NUTS
IT CAN JUST BE PUT INTO A PONY TAIL (A BIT LIKE THOSE SILLY LOOKING 60 YEAR OLD MEN HAVE) - SO I DON'T LIKE THAT. AND IT IS CONSTANTLY FALLING IN MY FACE AND FEELS LIKE I HAVE JUST WALKED THROUGH A SPIDERS WEB I FEEL LIKE AN OLD ENGLISH SHEEPDOG
WHAT SHOULD I DO, PERSEVERE OR PUT MYSELF OUT OF THE MISERY AND GET IT CUT BACK TO NORMAL.
ANY ADVICE PLEASE

I've had my hair everywhere from waist length to a buzz cut - so I know all the traumas! And really, I only miss my short hair when I'm trying to eat an ice cream cone on a breezy day. Or cross the street without being blinded
Buy yourself one of those big claw like clips that you can take out and put in easily. Or get it cut short and invest in wigs when you want the chignon And thanks for the laugh!

Your hair has just reached a frustrating stage. If you stick with it, you should be able to work with it in another few weeks. I used hair combs and hair bands when I was growing my hair out, to pull it away from my face. It was a different style for me, but I didn't have to do it very long until my hair was more manageable. I now wear it shorter, because my husband likes it this way.

From my first childhood memories I always wanted long hair, and
looking back on photographs of schooldays with these thin little plaits I often
wondered why my mother persevered.
Even into my middle years I would envy women with thick beautiful hair, and long
Now into the latter years of my life I am grateful for what I have, which is a very
short hair do, and a flattering cut for a mature person.
I have been a hairdresser from seventeen years of age, and envied all my clients
who could have swishy bobs and never once encouraged them to have their hair
cut............so persevere, and post a photograph of your long locks when you have
reached the desired lenghth.
Best of Luck,

you round the twist, I would say pull it back with a bow or something. No
other hints as hair is the bane of my life. Drives me nuts!
Elllllllllllllllyyy......maybe you are just the person I am looking for....a decent
hairdresser in London without paying over the top. Caroline, you can't
get a cut and blow jdry in London for less than £58 and that's before the tip!
Harrods charge nearly double.....and you still might not like the cut! UGH!

I get $12 haircuts if that much.
Don't know what to tell you. My hair is strait as a board and usually kept at shoulder length = no fuss no muss. I used to dream of having curly hair until I got 3 perms that looked like bird's nests. Paid more than $12 that time. When in doubt, leave it alone.

MY OH MY DON'T WE SUFFER!!!!!
TOOK YOUR ADVICE SARA AND HOTFOOTED IT TO THE LOCAL SUPERMARKET WHERE I WAS MET WITH A DAZZLING ARRAY OF TORTURE IMPLEMENTS FOR HAIR
UNABLE TO MAKE AN INFORMED DECISION I DECIDED TO GET A RANGE OF SIZES IN THOSE CLAW THINGS, AND OF COURSE THEY ARE IN ALL DIFFERENT COLOURS.
COULDN'T WAIT TO TRY THEM SO WHEN I GOT HOME OUT THEY CAME.
YES THEY DO HOLD YOUR HAIR, BUT AS MINE IS AT LOTS OF DIFFERENT LENGTHS I HAD TO USE LOTS OF CLAWS.
THE EFFECT WAS ASTOUNDING
I LOOKED LIKE A CROSS BETWEEN A MULTI-COLOURED HILDA ODGEN AND SOMETHING OUT OF A HORROR MOVIE
TODAY I WILL TRY AND BE A LITTLE MORE CAREFUL AND HOPE I LOOK MORE NORMAL
THANKS FOR ALL THE ADVICE - AND THE LAUGHS
