Despite being very happy about my hair last weekend, I've gone and cut half of it off! The main reason being that I hadn't had it cut since...I can't even remember! So when mum came over last week I asked her to cut a bit of the back...and the 3 following hours I spent cutting the rest. And about an hour the next day...I don't know if I can really recommend cutting your own hair. It's difficult and time consuming and difficult.
I went for a slightly modified middy plus, with slightly longer top hair, so that I can get it behind my ears. I don't know if I did it right, but at first it looked awful and choppy (hence the second day of fixing). Now it looks okay even when not curled. But I feel like a boy when it's straight, and it's not even that short!
This is second day hair, so I've slept on the curls one night. When styled like this it looks more 50's I think, but I've got lot's and lot's more experimenting to do!
