It's above my shoulders now with layers and no bangs, but face framing layers at the side. I'm pretty happy with what she did. And this hairdresser is a true bargain.
I may have to use a headband when cooking to keep the side layers out of my face, but I can live with that. In a day or two after I wash it, I'll try to get a photo.
I also broke down 3 weeks ago and dyed it. I was watching that Oprah show with Nora Ephron, Geena Davis, and Diahann Carroll when I decided that gray may be natural, but it's not all that flattering. I went a shade darker brown than my natural color and it only took my MIL about 2 seconds to comment on it when they arrived a few weeks ago. I think mostly it's because she wants her granddaughter who was once blonde, to go blonde again, and not be a brunette. Not that she was trying to start anything with me, 'cause that's not her style. But she does have an eagle eye for these things.
