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!

I'm about to donate my hair, 10 inches of it. It'll be my first time having my hair short in a long time. A few people have voiced opinions that short hair will look bad on me ( I have a round face, not sure if that makes a difference) I really want a cute but different hair do. 10 inches comes right above my shoulders. Help? I really need a new hairstyle. Something funky, but I don't think I want a pixie cut. Thank you!

First of all, don’t listen to other people. Donating your hair is such a wonderful thing, AND as long as your confident and knowledgeable about how to style your hair and what works for you, anyone can pull of almost anything! I promise. 

If you want to leave your hair as long as possible after taking the 10 inches off, try an A-line hair cut, and you can opt to get it stack in the back. 

this is an A-line cut and it looks like there isn’t much stacking going on in the back. this particular cut has a lot of choppy layers, which makes this average haircut really funky!

I really like this one! It has a lot of “wispy” layers. It is also an A-line cut, with the length in the front a bit longer than in the back. This would look especially good on anyone with a round face, as you mentioned you have. 

Another idea is to get a cut like one of these above, but ask the stylist to give you straight bangs. They look great on people with round faces, adding angles to a “non-angular” face shape :]

I hope this helps! Don’t hesitate to ask anything else :]

I’m caught up on my questions!

I’ve decided that I am going to publicly post all of my questions, whether they are anonymous or not, so that they are available for people that may have similar questions. However, if you really don’t want your question public, let me know and I can answer it privately. 

Have any hair related comments/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.
