hair thursday makeover 21
Oh my goodness, this first one is just packed with polls and options, so let’s get to it.
Salt-n-Pepper color with “an emphasis on the sodium”. Doesn’t color or highlight.
Oily, thick and slightly wavy
Wants a manageable style
Uses whatever shampoo is on sale (I might have shed a tear while reading this part)
I have to admit, I am fully invested in this one. You see, I had the awesome opportunity to meet Heather at Blogher last summer and I luh-huve her.
Look at me. Look at how I’m literally pressing my entire being up against her! She’s just THAT lovely!
Anyway, Heather has been chronicling the grueling process of growing her hair out on her blog, Oh My Stinkin’ Heck, as well as on Flickr.
Take a moment. Have a looksie. Familiarize yourself with her situation. She even polled her readers about whether she should continue growing or cut it off again.
By looking at her most recent photos, I would say she has definitely gotten through the hardest part of the growth process and is on the way to long hair heaven. However, I have to be honest about my feelings. For some reason, I can’t envision Heather with long hair.
Is it because I’ve become accustomed to seeing photos of Heather with short hair? Or is it because I got a chance to experience her bubbly, infectious personality (which totally screams short, spunky hair to me) in person?
Short and spunky!
Soft and romantic…
The questions, people. THE QUESTIONS. I’m up in the air. (Except, I am completely adamant that she continues to NOT color her hair. I love the salt and pepper.)
Remember last week when I said I would be including polls sparingly? Um, well this one is definitely in need of some popular opinion.
The first poll of the day (and decidedly, the most important. Please VOTE, you guys!):
Now, it gets a little tricky. I’ve picked out two styles for each length. Please vote for the corresponding poll to your answer in the first poll. For instance, if you picked that Heather should cut her hair, only vote on the short hairstyle poll. That way, we can keep things relatively fair.
(I swear on your mama, I will count these votes and come after you if you cheat.)
Okay, for those who voted for Heather to keep growing:
And for those who voted to cut it short:
Have I fully confused everyone? Good.
(In my humble opinion, If Heather wants to continue growing her hair, I think she should experience all four of these styles, in the exact order that you see them. First, shape her current hair into a bob, and then grow to shoulder-length with light layering. By then, she’ll be completely sick of longer hair, so she should chop it all off Jamie Lee Curtis-style and then let it grow to the Sharon Stone length. Whew! )
Wow, I need a drink. However, I must press onward!
Dark Brown, never colored
Hair Condition: Normal condition, very thick, a little bit if wave
Owns a flat iron, curling iron, hair dryer, brush, round brush
Likes her hair, but is looking for a hair style, not just a hair cut
Not comfortable with shorter than chin-length
Adrienne is yet another fabulous gal that I know personally. Lucky for me (AND YOU), I think I have a handle on this one.
Like I mentioned above, Adrienne likes her hair but thinks it lacks a specific style. First off, wouldn’t you agree that her hair is gorgeous? Her beautiful, rich chocolate color and the shine is really amazing.
All she needs is a substantial, sweeping layer in the front, light layering around the rest of her hair and a maximum of 3 inches cut off.
How about this?
With the long, sweeping layer in front and the lighter layers cut into the ends, her hair will have tons of body. Adrienne can use a flat iron if she wants, but I really don’t think it is necessary. A blow dryer, round brush and a dab of FF glossing cream will give her a polished look with the perfect amount of shine. Plus, she will still have the length to pull back when she wants. Capiche? Capiche.
Good luck at your appointment tomorrow, Adrienne! I can’t wait to see the results!
