Ok, pretend for a minute I actually look this smokin' hot; this is what my hair does if I scrunch in some curling paste from Aveda, scrunch it, and shake my head to let it air dry:
I actually had this haircut back in the 90s; I remember it took touching up with a curling iron to get actual spiral curls instead of waves.
For a while I had a version of this cut (again, it takes some straightening and then a curling iron to get it to flip a bit at the back, but my hair in general likes to do this thing), but since no one was filming me with a fisheye lens while I did cute things, it didn't seem quite to fit.
Actually, my most recent cut has been a shorter, more angled version of this --- although, alas, not this awesome color. (I wish I was settled in a job and could go back to my manic panic! I looked surprisingly good in teal. Although that was its own level of work.)
Anyway, I was thinking that maybe I've done the angled thing enough? That cut doesn't really look like anything in particular when I just scrunch-and-airdry, anyway, and I've been too busy and beat down to go at my hair in the mornings.
So ... angle the other way to be short in front and longer behind? Ugh, that sounds suspciously like a mullet. Go shorter? I'm worried that without the weight pulling it down it will be curling out in weird ways.
