Yeah, that's what I normally do. Some hairstylists are better than others though, and I've found that alot of them want to "Americanize" the cut to some extent. Alot of them are into blending the hair together and I don't want blended, I want chunky uneveness and such. Even with a picture, many will put their own "spin" on it because it's what they're used to doing

After one week, I wouldn't call it bad per say, but just not as cool. The 4th week, on the other hand...

That's JMO, and it depends on the color of red you use and whether you bleached it first, and your own natural hair color/texture/healthyness, plus the products you put in it, etc, etc.

For example, I wash my hair every other day with a color shampoo which helps somewhat, but I also blow dry it (with a crappy blowdryer) and straighten it (with a really crappy non-ceramic straightener). That definately strips some of the color away. Then I subject it to a mountain of gel and hairspray which probably isn't too good for the color either. I don't know.

Well, in order to do this hairstyle, you'll need it to be cut VERY short and style it yourself ^^ lol Strike that, very short and layered, lol. Of course you'll need to tell the stylist to adjust it by leaving pieces of the hair long (the red parts) You'll first need to find a simple haircut because if you bring this pic in, i don't think they will know where to start since in the pic, it is styled @_@

Hmmm....i guess something along the lines of this would be perfect. (attachment below)

Make sure you get a lot of tiny layers, i suggest asking the people to razor the ends of your hair for that easy jagged look.

Okay *jumps on bandwagon... mmm...comfy ^_- * I'm in desperate need of getting my hair cut. Normally, I have some style in mind, but this time I'm completely lost for ideas! I only come to this thread, notbecause I want to looklike a j-rocker, but because they happen to have the styles I like. I suppose over the years I've always had some sort of j-rockish hairstyle, but these days...well... my hair looks like crud. My old cool style grew out (it was awesome, short at the front on one side, moving down longer at an angle to the right. Then the back mimiced that,and I had shorter layers underneath longer layers so when I tucked the longer layers behind my ear it was like "whoah,new hair cut") Anyhow, I really desire something new, only the catch is, I've got hair down to my shoulders, and it's the longest I've had it in seven years. I'm used to short hair, but I don't want to just hack all of my hair off yet because I wanna see what it feels like to have 'long' hair.

Sooooo, I was wondering if you people could help me =D I want to keep my hair as long as possible, although I have absolutely no problem with shorter top layers. I don't want something that resembles a mullet, or something with everything short with a few longer whispy bits here and there (they get irritating very quickly...) I just miss having hair that I could do something with. These days there's nothing I can do with my hair, I can't change the style by putting in product or anything. All I can do is have it curly, wavy, or straight - and to me, that's kind of boring. I want an actual style!

At the moment, my hair is short-ish at the back, and longer at the front. Anyhow, here are some pics:

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v9...e_/badhar2.jpg Terrifyingly bad hair... in it's 'natural' state, i.e - I hadn't really done much at all to it other than.... wake up that day.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v9...e_/badhair.jpg Me with Evermore! Yay! My hair was only quickly straightened that morning so it still looks like crud

Straightening my hair on frequently to get a desired style right is no stranger to me. I'm used to it, and I'm used to having to put product in my hair every time to style it 'just right'. So don't hold back with suggestions, please! ^_^

Oh, and I was browsing this thread and came across a link to this: http://www.blue-neurose.de/images/ruki25.jpg I really like this hair style because of the messy layers and stuff, only... it's so short, and I think doing a longer version of it would ruin that style.

Anyhow, what do you think? what would I suit? (feel free to browse through my cosplay gallery to see other pictures of what I look like because I know the above two images are horrendous, lol. )\

Now, I think I best click the 'submit reply' button before I stay here talking any longer!

Thank you very much in advance!

Hmmm....from what you're describing, it sounds like you want a Hizumi type haircut. It's not too short and not too long, but has all those messy choppy layers in it. His hair is simple yet unique when styled ^3^ If you want something else, i think i have alternative choices

"The Hizumi Look"

Oooh, thank you Mijakai! I hope I didn't sound too demanding ^_^;;;

I'm curious as to what the alternative choices are though, so if you have the time/wanna put the effort in (if not, I don't mind xD) feel free to post the alternative choices!
