    If you don't want to Japanese straighten it you can flat iron your hair every morning. I actually used to do this until I got sick of wasting 20 minutes of my life each morning. I have seen your hair and it is very wavy/curly, there isn't a product out there that will do it for you unfortunately. I think you have to resort to something very short for a professional look.


    Of course, except you would just have a widow's peak.

    Sure.


    I wouldn't call it curly. Just very unruly and coarse. It is a rat's nest if I don't do anything to it.

    Have you chemically straightened your hair, if so does your hair become dry?

    I am getting a haircut or straightening my hair today, probably going a haircut because I cut my hair about two weeks ago.

    Anything you recommend? I am hoping my hair can do the the following

    I don't do chemical straightening. I might try it though. I just have a product that I use to pull it straight. I have to use a lot of it though. My hair is nowhere near as curly as yours.

    I have gone through a few products and have not had any success, what do you use? I doubt it would help much :('

    Do you think that hairstyle is possible for me?

    Lush The Big Tease. It won't work in your hair. Your hair is too curly to have products make it straight. Why don't you use a flat iron? I used to, but it does make your hair dry. If you want straight hair you are going to have to deal with dryness and just use a cream of some sort for moisture.

    It won't look right. If you comb your hair to the side it's going to draw attention to that extremely large widows peak. It's just going to read I'm balding regardless if you are or not.

    Funny that Gosling's haircut in CSL is mentioned because I've had this hair cut for a couple months now. I really, really like it. Easy to maintain, but looks good and I get compliments on it. If you're not sure if you could pull it off, talk to your stylist and they can help you out.

    that's what I was thinking and afraid of. Really not sure what would look good with my hairline. it's incredibly frustrating. :(

    patrick gave me some ideas, but i'm still not sure.

    Your hair line is very similar to Jude Law. You may be capable of styling your hair like his youthful self but also search his 2012 hair style to see where it is now. Maybe you can style some where between.

    Lately I have been getting my haircut with clippers (#2) on the sides and back, and scissor trimming the top to a moderate length. As far as styling goes, I either sport a messy spike/fauxhawk for casual occasions/everyday and then for more formal events I part it. I'm looking to grow my hair out, and wear a long style (close to shoulder length). How can I achieve this without looking like a slob on the way to long hair? I haven't had long hair since I was a freshman in high school, and when I did it was a terrible, forward-brushed shag. [​IMG]

    I just really don't know what to as far as maintenance cuts goes. I have really thick, coarse hair that gets wavy when it gets longer. It has a tendency to get poofy and I'd rather avoid this if possible.

    If you want to pull off longer hair right, just go along the lines of a Keith Urban. As far as maintenance cuts, I'd talk that over with a stylist.

    I'm unsure if I want to go that long, and I don't really like bangs. I was thinking more of a pushed back look. My hair is more like this when it gets long:

    I'm going to try to get this length and then decide if I want to go longer or maintain. I've had short hair for so long now. I've had times where I decided to grow it out, but for whatever reason I always changed my mind and went back to my comfort zone.

    Hi all, first post here on SF.

    Looking for some advice, input, ideas, brainstorming, etc. for what to do with my hair.

    I currently get it cut about once every month, short on the sides and back, textured and styled on top. I don't mind the look but I've had it for so long I want to try something slightly different. My gf loves long hair on guys so I'm debating growing it out but I haven't done that since I was about 10 so I have no idea what it's going to look like. One thing to note is that my hair is EXTREMELY straight, to a point of annoyance. I have a hard time getting it to fold over at all when I try to sport the combed back, textured look. It's so straight it just grows from my crown straight down and I'm not sure what it will do if I try to grow it out.

    Also does anyone think I could achieve either of these styles with my poker straight hair?

    [​IMG]

    with maybe this as the in between stage style?
