Hair ideas

Recommended Posts

J_Perra

I am coming to your ladies for help. I am looking for hair style ideas that would "fit my face". I would prefer not to loose the length in the back, but I kinda fail at this right now. The pics are how I normally wear it, and it's getting kinda boring.

I would experiment with wearing it more forward as it would "soften" your look.  Often it's a good idea to talk to a hairdresser.  Oddly for some of us they are the first we come out to.  You might be shocked by the results but if you are trying to feminize your look hair can help more than most things.

 

Hugs,

Move your center part over to your left side above end of your left eyebrow. and sweep the front hair to the right.  Or do it right to left and catch it up with a cute clip in barrette.  Your face and mine are similar in structure and I have some pictures in my gallery where I played with some styles. 

 

Your bottom picture here shows your hair is a bit thicker than mine and you might be a candidate for side-swept bangs cut by a stylist.  My stylist is the sister of a MTF and loves to work on my hair and chat about the local Trans community.

That's funny. My natural part is on the left. My hair is ultra fine though which sucks. I cannot seem to get it to grow past mid sholder blade in the back. I will check photos out. I wish i was lucky enough to find some local MtF friends. But that is mostly my fault for not getting out. Kinda hard to do with work and raising a 3 yo on your own. I wouldn't trade what I am going through or her for anything though. I liked this, we did it before the dye job. Couldn't stop laughing though.

You made me laugh.  That was a bit more forward than i had expected!:D

I must admit to being jealous.  I have to wear a wig as i'm bald as a coot.  The only advantage to that is it's being pre styled.

I would still suggest a stylist.

Ps the last pic is cute.  Enjoy playing and a style you like will come to you.

 

Hugs,

I agree with the swept forward as the high forehead look is not helping at all. Mine looked a bit similar when styled as yours. I have tended to go with a medium fringe rather than swept to one side as I get irritated by hair over my eyes. I found that the length made my fine hair fall forward over my mouth and I was constantly sweeping it back so now I have a shorter 'Purdey' style (a sort of tapered bob). I find it easier to control and, as we are not living in the 1960's, female.

 

Hair control is perhaps one of the biggest problems I have found (in my opinion) for a woman.

      Thanks Vicky,  I know I have a long way to go, just started this a few weeks ago. I am just so damn happy that it came together as well as it did. Far from perfect, but that’s just me. It’s amazing the amount of relief and happiness I’m feeling right now. And the wife seems to approve so that helps. 😁😁😁

      Hi! and Welcome!
    • VickySGV
      A word of hope and dread, I began my Transition 20 years ago as a CD, which lasted 12 years, and FULL TIME with all the the work 8 years ago, and I am still not finished.  Don't worry about it though, you are living your truth and that is the most important.  A happy, friendly attitude with people will more than offset any little defects we have, but that is the same for all our life. 
    • JustineM
      For the first time I actually put everything together. From the gaff and false boobies 😁 to all the makeup. I’ve got to be honest I saw  my body profile and almost cried. Still need more practice with the makeup but it wasn’t to bad for my first attempt. Also need to grow my hair more or get a wig.

      Gooseberries grow best up north.  In fact, a bush won't grow berries, if it there wasn't at least one hard freeze over the winter time.
    • Ellora
      Ive never heard of Gooseberries, I must try them now.

      Eeeek, Nettle in the nethers! No bueno!   One thing men and women have in common, is they both have need to squat then #2 is involved. 
    • Ellora
      We have heat, and a wide variation. all within a 20min drive. =). In the winter, you can play at the beach, drive 20-30 mins inland and play in the snow =).

      Eeeek! too hot! AC all the way!

      Ace of Base did a cover of Bananarama's song "Cruel Summer." in 1998. The Original song from Bananarama came out in 1984, which dates me back to 18yrs old when it was in the "Karate Kid." Lots of nostalgia for me .

      That sounds so perfect I bet you could make a lot of nice desserts with all the fresh fruit!
    • tracy_j
      Except for the sun it sounds good over there. Here we live with a wide variation, but I like the heat better than most. I'm loving it here at the moment picking Loganberries directly off the bush as a snack between meals lol. The redcurrents are at their prime too! A short while ago it was Gooseberries and soon be time for doing the same with blackberries. I love to pick things direct rather than buying at the supermarket.   Tracy

      I am not sure it is all post transition. I remember a friend joking at a party we were at that I was typically like a woman and taking so long in the loo. On reading a national newspaper here today I did notice an article about there being loads more bacteria in a mens facillity than a womens - surprise surprise lol. The main thing I miss about going in the wild (apart from beware of nettles etc) is that it is less easy to see approaching embarrasment, being low down in the undergrowth.   My visits to the hairdresser are very similar pricewise. She is not upmarket either is styles or price but I love the local meeting / gossip. I suppose the thing I don't miss is the (often) doctors surgery atmosphere of a barbers rather than chatty hairdressers.   Tracy
