Updates – Part Six

To all the requested participants from the past month, I will get the questionnaires to you shortly. Thanks for your patience.

Now, on with the updates! Remember Ashley?


Ashley was spending way too much time flat-ironing her hair when in fact, she had a naturally lovely wave pattern. I suggested she ditch the flat iron on most days, cut some layers and sideswept bangs, and embrace her naturally wavy hair.



Look at that naturally gorgeous hair. Let this be a lesson to all of you wavy gals out there- Ashley was spending all sorts of time trying to alter her natural style, when in essence, her wavy hair is beautiful! And the best part? This style takes virtually NO time to create.

I’ll just let Ashley tell you.

“I just have to tell you again – THANK YOU! Seriously, every time anyone sees me with my new hair compliments me. Even this lady at the coffee shop I see everyday (but we never say more than hello to each other!) came up to me and asked me what I did with my hair. And told me she loved it.

Thanks for encouraging me to go au natural. AWESOME.”

(I just love these testimonials. They make me feel like I should be on QVC.)

Next up – Kristin:


Kristin wanted an update and 56% of you chose Option #1.


Heeeeerrrrrre’s Kristin!


Cutting the length off really freshened up Kristin’s look, didn’t it? She mentioned her bangs were a little too short, and I would agree, but (as we gals with bangs know) they should be perfect in a few weeks. The cut really emphasizes her beautiful face.

Remember Amanda?


Amanda wanted to know if she should cut bangs, which 83% of you said YES.


Not only did she add sideswept bangs, but added layers around her face and shortened the length. Doesn’t she look awesome? I’m LOVING this cut on her.

And last but certainly not least, Bryanna.


Her options were:


Bryanna cut a few inches off the bottom, kept her golden highlights and looks amazing. She used the whoorl curling technique to soften the curl (like Option #2), which she mentioned was a “subtle difference in method, but a completely different curl”.


At my Hair Thursday request, Bryanna also broke out the flat iron for an additional look.


So sleek and GORGEOUS.

Bravo, ladies! Bravo!

Oh, wait! One last chica! Miss Metalia:


However, Metalia did not follow my first suggestions.


She did, however go for the Nicole Richie bob:


What? No curly blue bob? Shiny orange mullet? People can be so PICKY. GAH.

Looks fabulous, mah dear!

    so lovely, ladies! Makes me sad that it’s so wet and soggy here my hair looks like it belongs on a golden retriever.

    All of the updates are stunning!

    (Granted, the ladies were lovely in their before pics)

    I love the natural wave that Ashley’s now sporting! Awesome!

    Georgous! And now I must go in search of the whoorl curl softening technique.

    Wow, you clearly give great advice, Whoorl! I have naturally wavy hair and wish I could get it to look like Ashley’s! It turns out occasionally, and I will say that Aveda Be Curly helps mucho. It’s just hard to make the ponytail bangs behave when they’re wavy.

    They all look so great. I can’t believe what a difference a hair cut can make. Oh wait, yes I can because you helped me with that too!

    If you had a show on QVC, I would totally watch! :-)

    Yeah I love updates, so satisfying to see what people ended up choosing. Great job Sarah..you indeed are saving the world one head at a time. That sounded dirtier than it should have.

    Gah! I should have asked you a month ago. I am in the middle of a grow out and I am SO sick of it. I am going tomorrow to get some sort of shape added in so that maybe I can live with it while I add a few inches. Maybe then, I can get some of your awesome advice, because on my own, I always end up with either the short Paltrow look (from Sliding doors) or a bob (in varying lengths) so tired of it! You are awesome!

    I agree. My hair has been whispered into submission. It is so much nicer to me now!
    Thanks Whoorl!
