Is it me or does anyone else have trouble getting her hair to look like the stylist made it look?

Let's face it. I don't have a lot of hair. How hard can it be to make it look like this picture (which I snapped right after my hair appointment)? Answer: Very hard.

Granted, I haven't been able to get to the store and buy mousse, a flat iron, and some putty. Yes, it takes all that just to tame 50 hairs. But still, you would think I could manage this.

I will conquer. My mind is made up. I'm not complaining, mind you. I'm so thrilled to have hair, I don't even care if it's bad hair. But the fight is not over yet.

So I have to know, are you able to make your hair look like the stylist does or do you prefer the way you do it instead?

I'm becoming a woman of a thousand hairstyles . . . .

I NEVER can make my hair look like it does at the hair salon. I think you look beautiful no matter how you wear your hair.

I love your hair here, Di!

I like my hair better when I fix it. You should come over and we'll have a flat iron party. :-)

LOL! I like the flat iron party thing, Denise!

Donna, I can never make my hair look the same, either. I asked my stylist if she would go home with me, but she didn't think that would work. It's hard to find good help these days. . . . ;-)

I can NEVER get my hair the same. I got my hair cut in AZ this last time and she "texturized" it instead of layering. She cut with the scissors straight down instead of eveniy off. It looked strange when she was doing it but she said it grows out better without an obvious need for a haircut and she's totally right! It's been 7 weeks since my last cut and it still looks great. I'm not sure how to get it done like this again here and I think a plane trip just for a haircut is out of the question. LOL

I never like the way my hair stylist styles my hair, so I tell her to just leave it wet. It dries by itself and has more body that way. Diann, I love your hair short like that, but the flat iron would be a must. It's easy to use. Why don't you buy one of those cheap ones and play with it?

I've kept the same hairstyle (for the most part) for the last 4-5 years. It looks about the same when the stylist does it as when I do it at home. It's so trained, I don't know if I could get it to do anything else!

Your style looks great!

I like your picture,

Diann, it costs me way more in hair products and time with short hair than back in the day when I had more of it and it was long. I always laugh because I have to check a suitcase just because of my hair products!!!

That is so adorable!
No, I can NEVER duplicate what the stylist does, despite demanding step-by-step details.

Here's a suggestion for the way your hair is now:

When still damp after shampoo, put a few drops of gel (or mousse) in your hands and lightly run it through your hair. Not too heavy on the stuff.

Then, with your hair dryer on low heat/speed, use your hands to squinch (bunch up) sections of your hair in your fist. Don't hold the heat on it too long, but move on to another section of your head, but don't let it get too dry.

Set the dryer aside and fluff your hair with your finger tips. Let it curl and twist where it wants to go. Play with it. Spray a light misting hairspray (not the heavy sticky stuff) and tweak.

Like everyone else, I can't make my hair look the way my stylist does it, but then again, I'm working from a different angle than she is. Perhaps that's the trick...step out of ourselves and work on the top of our head and then go back into ourselves. Yeah. Right. And I also have bridges to! LOL

I must say, however, that I have the BEST stylist in town who knows how to do great cuts. That way my hair will eventually mimick what she did. And her cuts last a long time, too. I went 9 weeks between cuts this last time! She doesn't make much money that way, but her clients are happy enough to tip well.

Oh, no, Robin! Here I thought short hair would be easier! LOL!

Peggy, wow, thanks for info! That's exactly what my hair stylist did! I should have taken notes. :-) I'll try it the way you've said and see how it goes. Thanks!

Interesting to read how you all do it. Guess I shouldn't have complained about my wigs, huh? ;-)

Diann, ya know ya could have fun with your wigs, ( if ya have styles) when you and your DH, go out, people would wonder who he was seeing at the time

or would that be a bad thing?

I don't use irons, cause would burn myself.
