SO I realy dunno what to do about it. I was thinking trimming the back back some and trying to gow the top out till its all one lenght ... then I would have someplace to work from.

That's sort of what I suggested, but not bothering to grow it all to one length. If you give the back a good cut, say 6 inches or so, you can let those layers grow out while you grow out the top, while keeping it trimmed. Then, when the top is at a good length for you, have the back blended into it. That way you won't have all those in-between stages. Patti and I HATE those in-between stages, right, Patti?

Besides... scroll back... I already posted a ouples times :P

Yea, I knew that, I meant that you were back just in time for girl talk, if I had been talking outloud you would have known that by my tone ...

Most married men don't get embarassed by those things.

That's right--hate them! :angry::lol:

I still say that you (Vincent, not Carla :blink: ) should go short. It's 2006--and you won't believe how easy and quick it will be in the mornings! B)

OKya I have a cofession about my hair... Im not happy with it..

See when I lived in Vegas I had an awsome stylist (not cheap! ) and she did a great job on both my and my wifes hair.... then we moved to Nashville and after living here 6 years still cant find anyone that does a decnet job... so my hair in the back is a mess. Its like 15 layers. Some of it is like 6 inchs long, and some goes 1/2 way down my back. I think every hair stylisit I have been to cut a dif part or somthing.

I'd still cut it about 6 inches or more if you need to to catch up to a different layer. Do you want layers or all the same length. It would be far healthier if you cut it back to a length you can handle and let it grow out again.

The whole family has been soy free since February, gluten free since June 2006.

The whole family went back to a gluten diet October 2011.  We never had official testing done and I decided to give gluten a go again.  At this point I've decided to work on making some gluten free things again, though healthwise everyone seems to be fine.  The decision to add gluten back in was also made based on other things I'd read about the 2nd sequence of genes.  It is my belief that we had a gluten intolerance, but thanks to things I've learned here, I know more what to keep an eye on.  If you have a confirmed case of celiac, please don't go back to gluten, it's a lifelong lifestyle change.

How about 4-6 inches below the shoulder. Still long and easier to maintain and keep healthy.

Well, you have to be comfortable with your choice. Probably the best thing to do would be to find a good salon/stylist. Maybe ask around. Then go in and discuss with him/her what you have in mind. A good stylist will make suggestions, but ultimately do what you want.

I think you should wear your hair like your sons ... longish, curly, and red!!!! :rolleyes::lol:

Go to a salon where you need an appt. Typically, you get a better haircut there ... not ALWAYS the case, but typically. And, remember, you usually get what you pay for!

They use to sell it on late-night informercials back, I think, in the 80's.

This is very premature post as I have no idea whats being discussed yet....only read page one....lots of mispellings by Celia. :lol: Be back later. :D

Uh...not much is being discussed (like a Seinfeld episode - a whole lotta nothin:)...hair....nail polish....menstruation.....the usual :P

the typos - - let me tell you the founding of this thread - I was SO freaked out about starting my menopause thread - what was I thinking - - literally was losing sleep over the fact that people would forever associate me with menopause, whether I was going through it or not - there would be my name - - DINGO GIRL and MENOPAUSE.....so I was freaking out on that thread - saying MAKE IT STOP - going back and forth - - and there goes my friend Cecile, right there - starts another one in that instant. To rescue me from my embarassment....that's what friends are for. ;)

Short is so ..... NOT ME :lol: I did have it shoulder lenght in the late 90's cause it was required to get the job as a manager at an Office Depot store... job was NOT worth it.

somehow this just made me crack up..... :lol: no no definitely NOT worth cutting off yoru hair for a JOB for pete's sake.....

I haven't read this thread yet but when I saw Vincent was the most recent poster in the "40 something women" category ( :lol: ), I thought maybe I'd be allowed to pop in too. haha Hi everyone

HI MEREDITH!! welcome - you don't have to be 40-ish - - we would change the title of the thread but we can't..... ;)

I have tried a few places like that here, wish I had that money back ! heh

I dont get what could be so hard about my cut! :huh:

I'd still cut it about 6 inches or more if you need to to catch up to a different layer. Do you want layers or all the same length. It would be far healthier if you cut it back to a length you can handle and let it grow out again.

My wife said somthing simular that I ahve to cut a chunk of the back off. She pointed to a place on my back liek I can see what she is talking about, so being a wise and married man, I just agreed :lol:

Will I finally did it and had my hair cut like my avitar. I really did. I look just like him, except my hair is a little shorter then his. But it is spiked. I have been thinking about doing this for 3 months and finally got the nerve. I love it. I would put a picture up, but first I need someone to take a photo. My hubby and I are meeting Broncobucs for lunch on Saturday and I will try and remember to take my digital. If there is a good picture I will send it to Floridian to put on for a couple of days. Then I am going back to my smiling avitar!!

Vincent, I LOVE curly hair! That's the only good thing my husband gave the kids, their curls :blink: . Only one daughter (go figure, the one who is just like him) has my straight hair. My son has longish, curly hair and looks so nice! I agree with Carla, why don't you have it like Timothy (except for the gorgeous red colour, of course ;) )?

Broncobucs is going to be here for a wedding and that is why we are meeting for lunch. I finally get to meet his girlfriend.

Vincent, I don't remember my haircut in 7th grade, but I do remember the haircut in the 6th. I was complaining that I needed a haircut and my brother who was 6 years older then me, said he would cut it. He sure did. I went to school with a DA and that afternoon a notice came from the principal that said, if anyone came to school with another one, they would be suspended. I wore mine proudly for awhile, as I was usually not a rebel, but wanted everyone's approval.
