09:17 pm - Do it myself haircut XD
The ultimate of being cheap XD

So...remember that last post about the Takarazuka?  Yep, so, call me obsessed -o-  I went to school today in a suit playing and re-playing Takarazuka songs in my head all day and when I came home I grabbed my scissors, borrowed my roomie's full-length mirror along with my own and chopped off a large portion of my hair.
~*~*~*~*~

Length before.


And now~


The hair had just dried from a shower, so it's really frizzy and puffy.


See what I mean?


I tied up half of it and...


Voila~  So much better.




I swear I've got too much hair, I need like, half as much so it stops being so poofy-looking >___<  Just compare this photo with the 3rd one from the top and you'll see what I mean.

Now here's where I'd like to ask for some advice.  I was thinking of going to the a pro hair-cutter either tomorrow or maybe next weekend and get them to cut the front shorter so it'll look like the following:
~*~*~*~*~*~
 
Don't panic, not that short, but here's the original images just so you know what exactly I photoshopped into it.

    
So basically, I want them to leave two strands of hair long by my ears and also the back longer (though for sure I'm going to ask them to thin the darn thing out >__<).

And here's a quickie PS I did on a photo of myself just to get an idea:


Anyone have any idea how much something like this would cost around??

lol wow really not a bad job considering it's diy -- usually those turn out to be disasters, lolol. but it looks good!
i think maybe you cut your hair a little too short for the front locks to be that long.. you look so cute!! hehe.. and so.. professional lol like a businesswoman. neat!
you should also consider donating your hair to cuts-for-cancer or something like that.. it seems that you've cut at least the minimum length requirement of ten inches.. ne?

Yeah that occurred to me right after I had tossed the longest portions of the already-cut hair into the garbage DX My hair's not that great quality anyway, I don't really take care of it, just use whatever shampoo and conditioner's cheapest, and the bottom is stock-full of split ends x__X Actually I was wanting to cut my hair anyway because of all the split ends (it's just at first I was thinking just a trim, after Takarazuka came into the picture...well..ehehe ^^;;).

Know of any good hair-salons around here to suggest?? :D

lol did you have fun cutting your hair? i seem to have this idea that chopping your own hair off gives you a sense of exhilaration.. :P .. did you go wild at first but do it more carefully towards the end, when you pretty much reached the length you wanted to hit? (haha i've often thought about cutting my own hair... :P)
lol takarazuka.. reminds me of ouran actually... cause of the zuka club XDDD
and like you, i never get/got my hair cut in ottawa.. soo... i dunno any places ^^;;;.. my exchange students asked me but i have no clue :P

*laughs* Excuse my language: Holy shit! You are amazingly awesome. I've always dreamed of going to a hairdresser with a picture of my favorite actor and saying 'Make me look like this!" but I've never had the guts.

Firstly, the Takarazuka look suits you really well. If you get it professionally cut, however, be very very careful. If you don't have a good hairdresser, it may end up looking somewhat like a mullet. Thinning = good idea.

Even with a good hair dresser, however, I don't see it costing more than 60$ for the style. Maybe around 120$ if you dye your hair that 'Takarazuka shade' as well?

Again, the look really suits you though <---- jealous of your courage.

I also really like the self-cut you did. You look like a politician, or something. Very professional. And it does look Otokoyaku like. Very elegant!

Hah, for a while last year I was trying to find the Takarazuka suit, but wimped out of buying it. Clothes shopping, ahoy!

Ehehe ^^;; Thanks for all the compliments, now if I can just grow another 7 or 8 inches I'd be all set to audition as an Otokoyaku XDD

I just got it cut today and it was around 50 bucks, not as much as I expected it to be :D The hairdresser didn't cut it quite as short as I wanted it, she told me if she cut it too short, given how poofy my hair likes to be already, there's the risk that it'll end up standing straight up XD I'll post some photos up tomorrow or Thursday.

Haha, a politician! XDD It's funny you say that since that's probably going to be the profession I'll be in given the program I'm studying. So I've got the looks, now for the knowledge part...aka the boring, no fun, tedious and insanely expensive part DX

Oh and replying to your last reply to my previous post on Takarazuka (XDD), I'm so glad I was able to find that blog :DD Today I grabbed a bunch of the photos on there and printed them out wallet-sized to stick into my wallet so I can take the little darlings everywhere I go XDD (Right now my wallet's solely occupied by photos of Kazuki :3).

Take your time uploading (2GB for that Elisabeth one?? O____o Wow!). I've had my fair share of internets choosing not to cooperate and throwing tantrums right when I need it to hurry up so I'm super-grateful that you're taking the time to upload. You've got that Stage Chart with that photo of Mizu Natsuki on the front?!?! (That IS Mizu right? Still trying to get their names matched with their faces in my head >___<). LUCKY~!!! Ooh I'd love to see the photos inside *prepares the drool buckets* I spent all night converting and downloading youtube clips of performances again because I've become so obsessed (it's not my fault :X There's so many of them to look at and admire, just as I think I'm done another one pops up and it's oogling and starry-eyes all over again).

If you want to cut down on the poofiness maybe you can get the stylist to use thinning scissors on your hair to thin it out a bit. A straightener also helps but I wouldn't recommend daily usage of a straightener. If you do, your hair will become dry and damaged in no time.

As for cost it really depends on where you go. I've been to chinatown places where it was around 15-20$ (when I was in high school)... but now I go to the Amalfi Spa in Rideau Mall. I get a student discount there and it costs about 42$ with tx. Pricey, but I go every few months plus they give free bang trims so to me it's worth it because they do a great job all the time.

Thanks for the heads-up! I just got it cut today (at Amalfi Spa) and it feels a lot less poofy now :D Everyone keeps telling me it's so nice and thick and I'm thinking "well be my guest and take half if you'd like..." -____- My rabbit could've made a nest with all that hair XD I'll post some photos up tomorrow or Thursday.

Yeah, you might want to consider going to a hairstylist, but only to get rid of some of the puffiness and maybe thin it out a little...you really did a job for doing this yourself!It looks fantastic...can't wait to see it in person!-James

Have you decided to come and visit me?? Date? Time? Greyhound? Where do you want to visit?? *brings out the memo pad* I'm all ears XDD!!!

Great!I can't wait to see the finished look!Post those pics soon!Yeah, I want to come down to Ottawa on teh Thanksgiving Holiday, if you're not doing anything? Also, I want to make sure that my visit will be fine with your roomie (you know, out of politeness). I'd porbably take geryhound, though I hate the bus, so I'm considering the train (it's 30 dollars more).I think'd I'd leave Friday evening (Oct 6th, I think) or Saturday morning (the 7th). and I'd leave on the Monday towards the evening (Montreal is only an hour or so away,lol).

Sorry, I cannot post a comment with my user's name. I do not know why. Anyway..........Oh, you really look awesome and sooooo cute with the short hair. I cannot believe that you cut your hair on your own because I used to cut my hair by myself to save money but I ended up messing my hair up. My hair totally became disproportionated.....So I made up my mind going to hairdresser every time. I am looking forward to seeing you with the short hair on Saturday!

Really? That's strange...hmm...we can fix that when you come over Saturday so that you can post comments under your username.

Hehe, Takarazuka fanatic XDD We can watch some clips together when you come over, you'll probably get a lot more out of them since you can understand what they're saying XD I just starry-eye at the otokoyaku's and guess at what's going on :3

Wow...That is a lot of hair to lose in one go! do you feel lighter? Are you going to donate your hair for cancer wigs?

Incidentally, I cut my hair today too, but my hair was already on the short-ish side, so it wasn't really THAT huge a change.

My head feels kinda funny...not really lighter but just when I whip my head around or turn really fast there's no hair flipping over my shoulder instead I get smacked in the face by my hair. By the time I realized I probably should've saved the longest portions of the chopped off hair and donate it it was already in the garbage ;____; Oh well, I don't think they'd want hair stock-full of split ends anyway, I don't really take good care of my hair ^^;;

You got a hair cut too? Hehe~ You're hair's always so cute, I wonder who's hair is longer now :\

haha sorry I'm randoming reading back entries ~ hope you don't mind :)

I cut my hair short too! partly cos i was tired of having long hair, partly to do with Zuka. anyway I went from almost waist length to um, really short.

I saw some of your pics from a bday post on your journal I think it was, you're so cute :D Actually I think you'd make a great otokoyaku *-* You've got the big eyes I'd kill to have, mine are all squinty and small, especially when I smile, so everytime I take photos I have to pull one of these expressions O____O Looks super-flattering eh? XDD

*bows* thank you ;p hehe ... I'm, sadly, not quite tall enough to make an otokoyaku :( haha ... I'm slightly over 160cm ;p still, close enough to my love :) [that would be Maya Miki] hehe ~~

and don't worry about your eyes! the siennes themselves don't have the largest eyes around either!
*gets bashed by zuka loving babes*
