Ok you guys have one hour.

I have ass long hair. Neck length bangs. and its stick straight. I look like a hippie 98% of the time. Nothing wrong with hippies, I just don't like the look. My hair is a moderate brown.

I want to do something dramatic without majorly changing the length. I can't get a perm AND color. I used to get a crown perm to give my hair lift and stop the hippie look without effort. But I want something different.

Whos' got an idea and a link to a pic?

ONE hour ladies! Oh, and um, if I do something dramatic - I'll change my avatar pic for ONE hour.

not really Cathy. I took about 8 inches off the back to get rid of the damage, my husband is spazzing. Its still in the middle of my back and he's having a hissy fit that its "short". lmao!! I had long layers put in a while ago and forgot about that - I think she redid those. For the lift I want - I'm just gonna have to quit being lazy and use dem dere tools evry ones bent talking 'bout. Like straight irons, barrel rollers and a hair dryer! lol

I don't have any advice, but I can relate to wanting a change! I hope you find something you like! I feel like I don't have time to sit in a salon and get my hair dyed. Would love to get a mani-pedi too! Haven't had one since my wedding 4 years ago!!!!

You know the asian girl on Glee? Do that. Long dark brown hair with purple streaks! If you are worried about dying your hair, you can get clip in extensions in purple :)

that was me in the profile pic. bloated me. 7 days of popcorn, turkey legs, - high salt diet will do that... good god I was so PUFFY.

[deleted account]

Oh wait yep its you cool i would really think that cut would suit so much, you have a great face shape for a fringe..it would highlight your eyes and cheekbones.I was the same and i got the cut i recommend for you..i have to say the best hair cut i ever got and i had many in all different styles.

[deleted account]

Okay i would recommend a full fringe or bangs as some say, with a medium bob or shoter if you want to take it a bit shorter..i would go medium as its not to much first cut and them maybe the next time go shorter if you want...let it be a layered bob.Have the fringe blended on each side.Gives a great dramatic look without going crazy with the cut.Is that you in the profile pic?

WOO HOO! Truthfully? This is exactly what I pictured when I saw your face...just with lighter hair tones and more color to it.

And Cathys' has merit too but it looks like work. looking more and more like a crown perm and maybe a shading for the middle to lower parts of my hair...

short is so much easier though sharon. i used to have hair down to my butt, and now it's up to my chin (s) :) it's easy, and i love the way i look with it. only downfall is i can't put it back in a ponytail. i think you could with the pic that i posted. come on!! YOU CAN DO IT!!

I can't do juliannes pic - my kids dentist receptionist has that look - she looks like she backed into a weed wacker - and i hate her. lol

[deleted account]

did you ever have bangs before? their not just leave and go, they require a lot of maintenance especially if you have a natural part separating them.

I like both of those pics...still trying to find one...I think you need longer than a bob cut though....I think mid neck to shoulder length

Not to bronzy with the color, it will make your skin sallow

Ok, I am gonna say do not go chin length...go shoulder with some nice layers and some color.....maybe some reddish highlights? Or even some blonde tone....if you have bangs are on the forhead....once they reach the chin they are NO LONGER BANGS! But, bangs would look real nice on you...not the thick things girls are doing now....just about brow lenth maybe coming down on the sides a bit longer to frame your face....but hey...cut the hair! It will grown back...

I like the haircut that Kati liked also.

It's OK- everyone thinks I look like a stuck-up siamese.

DUDE! How can you ask this???? We have no fucking idea what you look like! I either know you as a cat, or this pic....I would say if you look like the white cat, color your hair bright red and shave a butterfly into the side!
