Your hair is layered and the hair of your favorite rock star
is all one length. By letting you hair grow it will eventually get there. I would let your hair stylist know that you want to let your hair get to all one length and they will cut it accordingly. Even though you are letting your hair grow to one length, a haircut every 4-8 weeks will help get you there faster.

As far as I'm aware you have two choices:
1) Flat iron it every day
2) Use nasty chemicals to straighten it

1 is more work, 2 does more damage to your hair.

It's more important whether you can rawk like that.

1. Your hair will get straighter as it gets longer because of its weight.

2. If that is not good enough, one can use a round brush (with a soft hold gel of course) to straighten the hair. Unfortunately, this takes a bit of work.

3. We all want what we don't have. Rock what you've got and be happy about it while it's still there.

Haha I know I know. People tell me they would kill for my hair, but when it gets frizzy it's just such a pain to deal with. I cannot headbang with it, so I would like it straight, where it can't get frizzy. I have considered using relaxants, but I dunno...

And to j, yes I can rawk like that. I have played guitar for a year.

Gel will eliminate most of the frizz if you aren't using is already?

Or, I don't know if anybody knows matt heafy, but his hair would be cool to have. Can anybody maybe give me tips on how to get his hair? I know my hair is long enough to be his length, but I think it would still be too curly.

Any good womens hair salon that sells product can point you in the right direction.

I'd suggest staying away from the hair iron - her hair broke badly after using one.

Stay away from the relaxers.

Being that you're white, relaxer will turn your hair into a stringy mess.

Why not change the style and not the hair ? Funk/Soul would match
