I gots my wig smoked...

I used a relaxer on it last night to strip out the perm, figuring based on the results I'd either go with that for awhile or run screaming to a licensed beautician...I liked the results, was impressed with the growth and with a lot of silk and deep conditioner I could have gotten away with it but opted for the free cut I scheduled at Legends in Carytown.

The girl was awesome and thrilled that I did not want to get a bob like almost every other girl in town...We talked through 3 cuts and how to combine then to get a sassy, low maintenance funky style...Here's what I ended up with:

Looks like many cuts I've had before BUT when she was done I was kinda scared...I looked a bit like Dorothy Hamil on a bad day. I tucked most back though and pulled some pieces down in front the ears and had a pixie thing going. It's supposed to have some wispy bangs but they are too long for me to consider them bangs. The above was from trying to spike out the back a bit and is still damp...I failed to take any other style pics and without Shane Rocket's skill I am afraid they are not the best self-portraits. I learned I have to bump the back if I want to spike it or else the crown will go flat.

So I'm tossing it out there...Opinions? Advice? Flowers or Rotten Tomatoes?


  1. A whole garden of flowers, LG!! It's very very cute! And girl, you've got the prettiest green eyes!
    Dorothy Hamil ain't got nuthin' on you!

  2. I chopped mine off! Crew cut.

    I like yours ... the length is just right to play with (meaning different sytles for each day). Messy bed head, flat n straight, slightly wavey ....


  3. I don't know what it looked like before, but I sure do like it now :) Lookin good lady ;)

  4. I like it!

    I waited forty-three years for curly hair and now I have it. Sometimes I wish it would go away.

  5. I think it looks hella cute!

    And I agree with Solo. You have amazing and beautiful eyes.

    Have a great weekend.


  6. Your hairstyle suits the shape of your face, LilliGirl. And your eyes are as gorgeous. You know, that's what I also admire about my wife. She has mastered the shape of her face, so whenever she shops for African American wigs online, it always turns out great on her. Your hairdo looks great, but I hope I see more pics of you wearing a wig. I'm gonna show them to my wife. Thanks!
