Update — Mir

Remember Mir?


Mir had some styling dilemmas, and if you recall, I was 100% in favor of growing her hair out. (In fact, for all you curly girls who might have missed it the first time, that post was chock full of product and styling tips!)

I recently received a great update from Mir! From her email:

I heeded your advice and found a great stylist who actually knows what to do with curly hair. No more am I a triangle head! (She does minimal layering on the top, then pulls sections straight out from my head and thins it from underneath. It’s like watching a dog be brushed with the Furminator — huge clouds of hair fall away, but miraculously, I never end up bald. It’s mystical.)

The resultant thinned-out hair lays out nicely when worn curly with minimal poof, and can also be flat-ironed with relative ease when I want a change.

Thanks for the advice! I kind of love my hair now!

Take a look at Mir’s beautiful curls now!


To change it up, Mir also works the flat iron like a pro.


Thanks for the update, Mir. You look wonderful!

    Amazing! I’m totally wowed. I wear my curly hair short, because I hate the hassle of having it long and everyone seems to like it shorter, but, Mir, you might have me growing it out again! It looks gorgeous.

    Wow, Mir. You look fantastic (and might I say, at least 5 years younger!). No trace of Mom Hair Cut at all, just super-stylie hip lady. Awesome!

    I may have to go back and find that post, because my hair and Mir’s? Identical. So need to see what was suggested.

    Mir, you look 10 years younger and no more hair hat! My hair is a lot like yours..in the before pic. Can we see what the back looks like now? How is it cut?
