    Got a new haircut today......

    Went to a new hairdresser's which opened a few weeks ago this morning.
    I told the hairdresser that I wanted something different but I didn't know what. And I got this haircut. When finished she asked me if I use hairgel, I replied no. She asked me if I wanted to try some and I agreed.


    What do you think?









    I think now I'm going to wear hair gel as I think it looks good.
    While searching for some on the internet, I found this website for hairstyles, could be a useful site for me.

    It depends what your hair style was like before hand......its could do with abit of volume, maybe more layers at the front so you can ruffle it up abit when you get time on your own just experiment with different styles, what you like best, what you dont

    definately needs messing up a bit, get a good quality hair product, dont use cheap gels (or any gel for that matter, gel sucks, its all about clay or wax). it looks a bit too lady gaga at the moment, needs a bit more life to it!

    The woman used the word "texture" on my hair.

    Does anyone think I could go shorter, maybe have a crew-cut, if so, do you think it would suit me?

    So what clays or wax would you recommend?

    I have never used any clay, wax or gel on my hair before, but thought about using it when she tried the gel on me.

    Yeah wax is better doesn't make your hair fluffy after half a day. Maybe some VO5 or shockwaves wax.

    I think you could go shorter, maybe your fringe an then it will be easier to style?

    Gel tends to cause a wet look effect that more often than not just makes hair look greasy rather than stylish. V05 matt clay is pretty good - probably a good bet for your hair. Dax wax (red tin) is alright, makes your hair go a bit clumpy sometimes though and its easy to put too much in, only needs a very tiny amount.
    And i'd suggest giving the front some lift, dont have it just flat to your face it makes it look quite limp

    I knew I should have said that my fringe could be more shorter. Oh well, I will tell them next time.

    What about shockwaves control moulding wax?

    I've never had that shockwaves one but it looks good. The Vo5 is good though I mean I'm a girl and have very long hair and I use it to give my hair more volume and it's works really well.

    I've noted down VO5 Styling Wax and VO5 Extreme Style Matt Clay, I'll have to decide between them both.

    I don't like wax as I found your hair needs to be completely dry to use it. Garnier Fructis gel is good for a defined style, and it doesn't look too 'wet' on hair.

    I might be going waaaayyyy overboard, but would it suit me if I dye my hair? I don't know what colour though and I would rather dye it at home instead of spending £££'s at a hairdresser.
