I'm trying to have a more professional image, since I'm starting a business next month. This weekend, I'm getting a bunch of business suits, and a new haircut.

Here's a picture of me.

Funky flipped out 'do

Very close to my natural texture



Hey, I can't change the poll, but I just spotted another funky cool 'do. What do you think?


These hairstyles would be in my natural red hair color, with some strawberry blonde highlights.

The funky flipped out look is the best, it is kind of easy, while being cute and pretty professional.

They look very simular IMO just differant ways of doing your hair.

I have a short flipped out and love it.

I must say as much as I like flipped out the second hair style i like very much. The first seems very frusterating to me with all the hair in the face which I cant stand

Yep I like the second one

I like the first one better, but if your hair is more like the second one, then I say go for that. If you are fighting mother nature you are going to be frustrated.

Talk to the stylist, see if she can meld the two.

Maybe I can get it cut like the second one, and experiment to see if my hair will take to the first one for some days?

Or how about the short haircut, I just added a link to above?

How fast does your hair grow and are you willing to get it cut often?

My hair is cut like the first one but after a month it grows out and starts to look odd (which is fine because I let it grow for a couple of years then donate it).

My hair tends to grow REALLY fast. Typically, I've gotten my hair cut about once a year. After I start the business, I plan on trimming my hair monthly, and going to get my hair done when I feel it needs it, like every few months or so. My hair is pretty thick, but because of the Lyme Disease I lose a lot of hair, too. My coat always has hairs all over the back. That's been going on for a couple years now, and I don't have bald spots or anything, but the elastic band went from 2 to 3 times wrapped around. It's noticeable to me, but not others, ykwim? It's still thick, though.

I still say the second one. #3 just isnt suitable to a professional image. IMO

I get my hair cut every 6 weeks and it should be 4 weeks but I dont want to put out that $.

Have you asked around and seen who people recomend for hair cutting?

I did and found one gal gave really snazzy styles. She cuts so fast its scary but WOW the cut is

I just wanted to add, I've had my hair like the first two cuts before. It's pretty much my standard cut. It looks cute, but I'm thinking I MIGHT want something new. I'm not sure, though. My fiance doesn't dig short hair...

Start with the flip. It looks easier to maintain while still having some fun. The newest look is kind of tempting, but I think I'm just liking the sunset colors. I'm thinking the newest look wouldn't be good with a long or square face, can't tell what shape yours is from the photo.

The "natural texture" looks like you wouldn't actually be cutting your hair, just styling it differently. From your pic and your other choices, I'm seeing that as too structured for you.

ETA:
The flipped look is also more professional, IMO.

My fiance just showed up... he likes the one that's closest to my natural texture, or the short one. SURPRISE! He thinks it'll give me a new outlook, since I've had the same basic hairstyle for like 11 years, and I'm 25 years old tomorrow!!! Almost half my life has been spent with this same basic style.

Hmmm.... I'm getting it done on Sunday. I'm still contemplating which one. I keep going back and forth.

That picture is actually several years old, but I look the same. I haven't changed my looks dramatically in YEARS. In fact, I look exactly the same as when I was 14 years old.

I have a round face.

Happy birthday. I think either hairdo will look gorgeous.
What business are you going into? I wish you all the luck with it!
Sounds like you are doing well.

I'm starting my own delivery service with my fiance. We applied for the business liscence, are registering it, and have met with the business development center. Now, we're just waiting for me to get my liscence.

We have almost 60 clients lined up, at $50 per month. We haven't even advertised yet.

Most of the clients will be elderly or disabled first or second generation Italians or Swedes. So, I must look "acceptable" and trustworthy to this clientele.

i have the third cut, actually .. and it's funky and cute, but pretty high maintenance. I have to have it trimmed every 3-4 weeks just to keep it style-able. It's pretty easy to style once you get used to it, but be prepared for hairdryer, pomade or mousse, hairspray and believe it or not, a bit of teasing to get the back up. I've gotten it down to taking me 10 minutes to style, but when I first got it .. MAN! It was like 30-40 min. (it doesn't help that i have natural curls and have to iron my hair unless I use a do-rag to straighten it overnight while i sleep )

The second one, I think it will frame your pretty face and accent your eyes. It's also long enough to be versatile if you want to play with it and change your look.
