Your hair sounds really similar to mine and I have a short blunt fringe (which I think works...maybe it doesn't), so I say go for it! It's worth just having a chat with your hairdresser about what they think will work.

Also, what red dye do you use? I struggle to find one which actually stays put for very long. I noticed earlier that Live have brought out some new range which is apparently endorsed by hairdressers which I may try.

I've been dying my hair red for years, and my favourite home dye is actually Superdrug's own red (can't remember which one.) I used to use Feria but it really fucked my hair.

Booked in for this afternoon. Will probably do the same old thing.

Sorry Carys, only just seen your post about a fringe. Have you thought about a fairly long side swept fringe? That way, you'd get an idea if a fringe suits you, but without the full-on commitment of a blunt fringe. It would be easier to grow out too, I'd imagine.

Having said that, I can't decide whether I look like an idiot with a full-on fringe at the moment or whether a side swept one suits me more. It's hard to be objective when it's your own hair. Whenever I see photos of myself, I just think my hair looks wrong and my face is wonky.
Just be nice to me.

I ended up just paying a fortune (£87! And that's with 25% off!) for the same haircut. At least my hair's all the same colour now, though.

My next haircut's going to cost 8 quid. It's a bob - they can't screw it up that much, surely? I have to cut it: it used to be blue, and before that it was purple, before that pink, before that orange...so you can imagine how much of it is breaking off. Last time I went to a proper hairdresser they were so rude about my blue hair I almost walked out.
five to six, that's what the time is.

I did have very thick, wavy hair, but had some hair loss about 4-5 months ago and now it's prone to looking a bit flat. It seems to look thicker when I leave it to dry naturally, but can look a bit limp if I style it. It's getting me down a bit and I'm crossing my fingers that it'll grow back (and I won't lose any more).

Anyway, can anyone suggest any good hair products for adding volume to long-ish hair, without weighing it down or making it feel greasy? It's probably about four inches past shoulder length at the moment.
Just be nice to me.

I've started going to Supercuts. £10 for a cut and no one makes any comment about my poor hair quality.
