A big cut for my curly ginger neighbor


Sick and tired of dealing with her thick curls in 90 degree humidity, Martha was ready for an all out chop. I scissor cut my way through this incredible thick red hair. She wanted short and easy. I cut it short on the sides and back, but leaving texture in the ends. The top I left a bit longer, with the most length in the very front for a modern finish. I cut the back to the nape of her neck, and left some disconnected bits around the front and sides to keep it soft and feminine. This cut is perfect for a low maintainance but hip short ladies hair cut.

It was a drastic change for a mama that was fed up with trying to keep her thick hair contained in the early summery heat. It will grow out very nicely, because this shape holds up really well over time, especially with all the weight taken out of the ends from the scissor cut technique.

    I have long curly hair that I’m beginning to get an itch to chop off again. I love this look, but am curious about how different it looks once it dries. I know mine poufs up a great deal; do you have any photos of this haircut a little later?
