    Ok, here they are! Detail photos of my new hair cut: a longer angled bob with lots and lots of messy curly bits. The stylist, who does my sister's hair, did a FABULOUS job and I just love it! I am definitely going to be seeing her again; she did an especially impressive job of interpreting "yay 80s punk rock, nay 90s R&B" ;) It's styled much more fluffy and curly than I do (she used a blow dryer and curling iron, I don't really use either), but it's pretty fun looking this way and I may give it a try for an occasion that calls for it.

    First three were taken at home a few hours after the cut, fourth is with my cell phone taken at the salon just afterwards.

    Hair? Looking forward to seeing it!

  • qpswan replied 7 years ago

    This "spot the difference" was far to difficult for me so I cheated and read the first comment. I went back to the photos to see if the pants or sweater were shorter. Nope. Then it finally dawned on me...THE HAIR!

    Lovely hair, you brave girl!

  • annagybe replied 7 years ago

    Ha! I'm trying to grow out my hair.

    no, no, no...picture 2 was taken 10 years ago, right? ...kidding...lopping off the locks has given you an instant lift!...very pretty!...Yep, your added detail pictures of your cut are beautiful! Your hair looks incredible. It looks healthy and bouncy and and juicy with vitality and totally flatters your face.

  • goldenpig replied 7 years ago

    What an amazing transformation! Looks super fab! Did you donate your hair or save it? I loved your long curly locks but this look is so fresh and stylish too! So excited for you!

  • jayne replied 7 years ago

    That is the absolute cutest cut! You look fab. SO fun and just happy!

  • qfbrenda replied 7 years ago

    Love it! What does hubby think?

  • Kate replied 7 years ago


  • Aida replied 7 years ago

    Thanks, ladies! I'm so glad you all like it as much as I do :D

    Natalie, I didn't donate it this time around but I have in the past (I donated a 1.5 foot braid many, many years ago).

    Brenda, happily hubby likes it! He is looking forward to not having a giant wall of hair in his face when it's windy/we're sleeping/etc. ;)

  • ramya replied 7 years ago

    Aida... the curls look fantastic... pinning this up so that I could show my stylist how i want my curls to be cut next time around...

    I am in love with the curls.

    Only Suz's haircut had left me *this* stunned.

    Now let me catch my breath...

    Stellar haircut! You just elevated your style about 10 notches.
    LOVE it !!

  • replied 7 years ago

    It looks fantastic, you must be so pleased!

  • Zapotee replied 7 years ago

    Holy smokes, can I say this? You look HOT woman!
    I so miss my short hair days. Impossible to do now.

  • ButterflyLady replied 7 years ago

    Oh wow, Aida it looks FAB!! I love it - really pretty and edgy at the same time (and that is some feat!).

  • Deborah replied 7 years ago

    Aida, I tryi g not to gush but seriously this is a stunning cut. Not that you to but your style quotient has just shot of the planet! You look gorgeous! This cut is stylish, youthful and sophisticated all at once....gorgeous!

  • Astrid replied 7 years ago

    It looks amzing! You look gorgeous - it's the perfect cut. I've not been liking my hair these past few weeks, now you made me want to cut it off too.

  • lyn67 replied 7 years ago

    Really that gorgeous! +++ Glad you did it!

  • Sona replied 7 years ago

    totally ultra fab haircut! love the 'edge'.


  • ManidipaM replied 7 years ago

    Superb. And so much fun! Very chic, Aida. And exposes a new area for figure flattery --- your neck!

  • Abie replied 7 years ago

    Just looking at the close up pics. She did such an amazing job. Did she straighten it to cut, or cut it curly? In my experience it is sooo hard to find a stylist that works well with curly hair. The one I see now is the first one I've gone to in ages that didn't start off recommending blow dry + round brushing or flat ironing for me. This one is a keeper for sure!

  • Amy replied 7 years ago

    Oh, Aida! I love your hair long, but I LOVE LOVE LOVE it in this sassy new style.

  • Transcona Shannon replied 7 years ago

    Now looking at the close up pics, I love it even more! This is positively DIVINE on you Aida! So beautiful....

  • Jem replied 7 years ago

    I REALLY love your new haircut! Wow!

  • Jamie replied 7 years ago

    Unbelievably adorable, chic, and modern! I LOVE it!!!

  • Vix replied 7 years ago

    A gorgeous cut on you! [I remember loving the cut you showed in your wedding photos -- you look great in shorter styles.]

    Hope you enjoy the bouncin' and behavin' (or deliberately not behaving) curls.

  • rae replied 7 years ago

    Squeeeeee! It IS a chop! How pretty/sassy/cool!! I can tell you love it, and I love it, too. I am so excited to see how this influences your style!

  • MsMary replied 7 years ago

    Oh my gosh! You look curltastic! I love it!!

  • O replied 7 years ago

    Ok, back here, breathing normally again... amazing haircut, really. I cannot even begin to tell you how much this hairstyle is YOU.

    I cannot wait to see your outfits now - this is such a change that everything will look so different!

  • Diana replied 7 years ago

    Looking good! Look at those bouncy ringlets!

  • san replied 7 years ago

    WOW I love, love, love your new shorter do! This allows your curls to pop.

  • Aida replied 7 years ago

    WOW ladies, thank you!! I'm thrilled you all like the cut so much, this makes my day! Funny story: I ran into one of my close girlfriends yesterday at dinner; we were leaving, they were just getting there, so it was a quick hi-bye. 5 minutes later, she sent me a text saying that she didn't even realize I'd gotten my hair cut until just then because "it looks so right on you" :D I suppose I should've gone back to the bob sooner, eh?

    Ramya, I'm flattered (and will pass the sentiment to the stylist, I'm sure she'll love to hear it)! Hope the cut works just as well for you!

    Zap, you can't wear your hair short any more? :o

    Astrid, I was feeling the same way the last month or so and I think it was just that the cut needed freshening up; sometimes with longer hair we forget how much even a little refresher can improve the look. I was actually debating between this type of cut or leaving it long but with really dramatic layer heights (shorter on top, long on bottom), and ultimately decided I was ready to go back to short hair since it's been a while. I hope you find something that makes you feel better about your hair soon, it's so pretty!

    Abie, she was a curly girl's dream! After confirming that I wear my hair curly (yay for asking that up front!) she did the process I most prefer: wash, do basic cut while wet, cut in more detailed layers while half-dry, diffuse the rest of the way dry, cut in fine details and shaggy bits and final shaping etc. with the hair DRY, then LASTLY got in there with the product and curling iron. Definitely a keeper!

  • Charmian replied 7 years ago

    Aida, this cut looks SO FUN! It is an awesome, awesome, awesome cut for you!!

  • Claudia replied 7 years ago

    Love it!

  • Jonesy replied 7 years ago

    Really, really, really gorgeous!! It looks so good with your beautiful face! Stunning.

    There must be something in the air, because I just got my hair chopped too :). Not as dramatic as yours, but quite a bit cut off. My hairdresser takes the same approach you mention, and she always does a great job with my curly hair.

  • kellygirl replied 7 years ago

    OMG! I love it. You look AMAZING with your bob!

  • Parsley replied 7 years ago

    Ooh la la- You look gorgeous!

  • christy replied 7 years ago

    Oh.My.God. - I love this on you!!!!! I've been fairly absent on the forum lately, but had to log in quickly just to say how much I adore this cut. It's so sassy and fun and such a perfect length for your curls. Will you PM me with the details of your stylist? I'm looking for someone new. Is she up your way or down my way?


  • morethanbeige replied 7 years ago

    OMG, Aida, your hair looks fantastic. Such a stunning cut. So perfect on you!

  • Aida replied 7 years ago

    Thanks Kim, Christy, and MTB!

    Christy,she is more up my way than down your way (Alderwood) but you will LOVE her. PMing you her info!

  • Lena replied 7 years ago

    Aida, your new hair is FANTASTIC!!! Wow. I'm so glad I dropped in and saw your update. Wow. The angle is stunning and the new shorter length brings so much fun and spunk and bounce (not that you didn't have these qualities before).

    Have fun with your new style :) :)

  • Vicki replied 7 years ago
