I want to do something really different with my hair and I need advice...by jj_jezebelPosted 3 months, 1 week ago
Two of my gay/drag queen friends who are phenomenal with hair and makeup have told me that I should cut my hair so it is long on one side and short on the other side and I like the idea, but I'm not sure what style I should go with.
I have thin hair and a heart-shaped face with a longer chin and I'm planning to dye it fire engine red after I get it cut. My bangs are about the same length as the rest of my hair, but they are cut in a fringe and I definitely don't want to shave or buzz cut either side of my head.
These are photos of how I usually keep my hair and I'm just really bored with it. Do any of you have any ideas about how to do this where I can do something wild and off the wall and edgy while still looking cute and feminine? My mom and my stepdad will both fly off the handle if my new look is something they consider too "butch." I'm 31 and there's nothing they can do to stop me, but I don't want to cause any fights.

I've done asymmetric styles for over a decade now, and I think it's definitely a really fun look. I've got way more of a pompadour style nowadays, but I had an asymmetric bob for a long time and you can see various incarnations of it on my timeline. Personally, I preferred it with an undercut, but if that's too much of a commitment for you now, you can start with a something right around ear length on the short side. I've also had a slanted fringe with it, but it does get kind of fussy to deal with as it grows out.
The most recent photos are pretty close to my current style, and it's shaved on both sides. I personally think this can look pretty feminine if you just keep the top longer, and it gives you a lot of fun styling options (including a mohawk, if you're committed). It gives you a nice options without a fringe, which I think makes maintenance slightly easier.
