Jamie is back with more hair questions for Bill.

See here for Jamie's original hair consultation with Bill.

Q: Bill said to send new photos if I had decided to grow out my hair. It is much more healthy now and a medium brown. It had a reddish tint, but that recently faded out. I've been growing it out since about August. I've gotten it to a sort of middle ground between a pixie and a bob, so I'm just confused as to what to do next. Not all the sides have caught up yet. — Jamie

Hair consultation - Jamie

Jamie's hair is in between a pixie and a bob.

A: Jamie, at this point I would shift your part to a messy off-centre part.

This cut could be parted anywhere, but for a strong shift in your look, part it off-centre. Also cut the back off—this will give you a great shape to continue growing.

Soft highlights and lighter ends would add extra character to this cut. This will soften any harshness from the new part, and your eyes will pop.

You might also consider starting to use a molding paste.

Tucking your hair back, away from your face, will also show off both eyes.

This length with messy ends would be super-pretty as well. The slightly darker colour with your hair off your face and tucked back… so elegant.

Then there's the addition of a fringe to open up both eyes. Pow pow…

This colour is pretty sweet as well.

I think this is all for now… please send pictures when it gets to the next length, with or without fringe.
