Question
Hello!
I am having a lot of trouble finding a good haircut for me. I hate doing anything with my hair; in fact I usually just step out of the shower and let it air dry. I have naturally wavy hair that tends to get a thin sort of "top coat" of little frizzies.  I have gotten the comment that I look like Emma Watson. Brown eyes, brown hair that tends to get  heavy on the bottom even at shoulder length, and perhaps a more oval shaped face and higher forehead. I'm also 17. Do you have any hair suggestions for me, new looks to try maybe? I appreciate it so very much! Thank you!

Answer
Hi Kaitlin,

If you don't want to do anything to your hair, your options are pretty limited. Light surface layers will make the most of your wavy hair and redistribute the issues of weight around the bottom and a good leave in conditioner and or curl cream like Redken Curvaceous will help with the frizz. Other than that, most styles are going to require some styling attention. i tried to find a couple of photos of air dried hair but i couldn't find any that weren't obviously styled.

I can answer questions on all types of hairstyling, cutting, designing, coloring, corrective color, perming techniques,product knowledge, and in general, anything that has anything to do with hair. PLEASE NOTE: I am a professional designer and trainer. I do hair and teach advanced classes to licensed designers. I do not, under any circumstances, recommend doing chemical services including but not limited to relaxers, perms, color, highlights, or any other chemical service at home. I will not tell you how to use professional products nor will I tell you how to do your color at home. What I CAN do is arm you with current and accurate information and help you to be able to better communicate with your stylist/designer. I can also help you with what you need to do at home to maintain, protect, and treat your hair.
