I have super thick, sort-of wavy brown hair that has now grown down to my waist. I'm going away to school in the fall and I want to get a really low maintenance hair cut just because I'm tired of trying to find a way to make it look good every morning. I've been thinking maybe an Emma Watson inspired pixie cut or something of that sort. I'm a bit worried about having to get it trimmed so frequently, as I've read that you should with this type of cut. I also don't know whether it would look good.

No matter what, you are going to have maintenance with a cut. Having short hair, you will definitely need to keep up with trims if you are wanting to keep it short. Whether it is short or long, hair grows at the same rate. It is just more obvious when it grows if it is short. With a pixie cut, there may be more maintenance then you realize. You may have to put styling products in it for it to do what you want. I used to have really short hair, and there was never a “wake up and go” way of life for me. With it being so short, I would wake up with my hair sticking straight up in places and there was no way to fix it without getting it wet in the shower. Even with a spray bottle, it wasn’t enough to tame the messy pieces. With longer hair now, I rarely have messy hair in the morning. And it’s easy to throw up in a ponytail when I don’t want to do anything with it.

I think going short is a great idea! It is fun and cutting your hair dramatically is always a great way to start a new chapter in your life. But if you are wanting a pixie cut or something similar because you want something low maintenance, I would maybe pass on it. For something easy to maintain, try cutting a few inches off. Just enough so that’s you can throw it in a ponytail when you are tired of it, but when you feel like styling it or going out, you still have that option. AND you won’t wake up with crazy hair in the morning! 

Hope this helps! Again, this is only my opinion formed by my personal experiences!

Ok so I have blonde and brown hair and I usually get it professionally done, but anyways I thought I would try and take the brown out myself and it just made it a lighter brown and killed it a little I made a hair appointment with my hair dresser to just dye the entire thing a lighter blonde and get rid of the brown with a cut and I don't know if its ok to re dye it right away or? Cause it will be 5 days since I dyed it last.

It isn’t GREAT for your hair, but depending on the previous damage to your hair, you should be okay. I have had to do multiply bleaching sessions to my hair with extremely strong bleach. My hair isn’t in the best condition, but it’s not falling out either. 

Also, your hairdresser will be able to tell you if your hair is too damaged to bleach it again right away. 

Just be sure to take great care of it after bleaching it! Do deep conditioning treatments! :D

what would you recommend for me to do: i have bleached my hair many times, my natural colour is medium brown, and now it's dark brown, how would I work around getting my hair lighter again? xx

Are you wanting to get to something similar to your natural color? Or are you want something way lighter?
If you are wanting to go all over blonde, I would recommend starting with all over heavy highlights.
If you are just wanting to go to your natural hair color, you can do what is called a shampoo cap. I would probably recommend going to a salon for this. They will mix shampoo with bleach and lather it on your head and rub it for a while until it has lightened enough for the desired color to take, like a medium brown. 

I hope this makes sense and helps! Let me know if you have any other questions :]

Hi. I have medium brown hair, about 3 1/2 inches longer than my shoulders, but it's growing quite quickly. In the summer, I want to get the underneath of it bleached and dyed turquoise, but I'll have to have it brown again by September. I think the turquoise will fade by then, but it will still be bleached. How can I get it back to brown again? Would dye stripping work? And how much ish would it cost do you think, for the bleaching, dyeing, and stripping/other way of fixing it? Thanks!


Actually, you don’t need to get dye that will strip your hair. You are correct in saying that the teal will most likely fade by September and it will still be blonde. When you are ready to color the underneath brown again, just go ahead and put the brown dye/developer mixture straight on the blonde. You can get bleach at Sally’s for anywhere from less than $5-$10 and brown dye for about $5. You probably want volume 10 developer for the dark brown and probably 20 or 30 volume developer when doing the bleach, depending on how fast/how dark your starting color is.
