October’s New Haircut

I got my hair cut today at Cameo Salon & Spa by an awesome lady named Lori and her stylist in training Sara. I told her I wanted to keep my length, I wanted layers to add volume, and I wanted a fringe. I told her I liked asymmetrical cuts and points, and I showed her a few images I had looked at for inspiration.

I’m pleased with the results.


(I wish Dave had told me it wasn’t straight in the back when he took a picture for me!!!)

Phaedra approves!

I really love how this works with my eyes.
Of course, the color is what I’ve had for a few weeks, Punky Plum and Manic Panic Atomic Turquoise. I like how Lori was able to incorporate my Turqoise panel into the look.

Edited to add:

The above image is what I used as the basis for my cut. It’s what gave me the idea of what I wanted.

      Hi Lu,
      Thank you ;)
      The brand is called Punky, and the color is Plum. It's fantastic!

      I love it! I'm growing mine out to either achieve something similar or just give up and cut it off! It really looks fantastic on you and yes, she worked around your color just right.

      Hi Mary,
      Thank you :)
      Definitely play with your hair. I kept mine barely grazing the shoulders or much shorter for the past 15 years so this is a nice change. Before that I had hair down to my waist!

      Hi Apriltini,
      Thank you!
      If you're ever in Tampa, I'd definitely recommend this salon and stylist :)

      It's fantastic! My cut looks really similar if I actually take the time to blow it out (which I rarely do because my hair splits really easily) except I don't have short bangs, more like these long sideswept bangs I keep behind my ears more often than not.

      I really love the bright teal bangs.

      Love your new do! I always get layers,and try to keep my length too,and bangs, 'cause I don't want my forhead to show. What is a "fringe"? I am guessing it has something to do with bangs.

      This cut really brings out your eyes! I love the fringe, it's very cool and with that length, you can have fun with it and try on different styles. *hug*

      Hi Amanda,
      Thank you!
      I like the bangs, I haven't had them since last year when I did the Cleopatra style bangs.

      Hi Starlight,
      Thank you :)
      A Fringe is bangs, yes.

      Hi Saila,
      Thank you!
      *hug*
      I was wanting to emphasize my eyes, yay!

      Hi Aralka
      Thank you!

      Hi Suzieduck,
      Aww thank you!
      Phaedra says thanks, too!

      I love it! It really brings out your eyes. The cut really gives it a lot of texture, and works so well with the colors. I wish I could do a straight style. Let us know how much work it take each day!

      Hi Lyndsey,
      Yay thanks!

      Hi Krista,
      Woot thanks!

      Looks awesome! I especially like the diagonal cut of the fringe and the soft layers around your face. Looks like it has a lot of movement. What a coincidence, I was craving a change and got a similar cut yesterday! My hair is about mid-back and curly, but the shape of the over all cut is a lot like yours. =)

      Hi Ella,
      Yay, sounds great!
      Yeah mine in the back only reaches to probably the spot in between my shoulder blades.

      Love the cut… I think it accentuates the colors, which are the best!

      Hi Amanda,
      Thank you :)

      What do you have on your lips there? One of my favorite colors on you yet.

    • http://www.blogger.com/profile/02168093054712781267 Phyrra

      Hi Tally,
      I think it's Bordello. I _really_ like it as it comes across as red on me.

      It looks great!
