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.

      I agree with Tori M, and I enjoy reading as well, one book I really enjoyed early in my transition was "She's not there" by Jennifer Boylan. The one story in the book about how this creep followed/stalked her after the gig (she was in a band), really hit home. I journaled my thoughts during the time period of reading this book in an old fashioned spiral bound note book, still have it.   I agree with SydneyBlue by staying busy, such as listening to or playing music is a great distraction from GD, do things, make things, apply yourself. Get your mind out of "Genderland". Consider this, non trans people don't dwell on these topics to the details we do, it can be very taxing. The faster you can get out of genderland the better, just living your life. Identify your own personal triggers, what initiates such thoughts, if Dysphoria rears it's ugly head, think how can you prevent this from happening again ?   Good luck, it's not easy, reminders can be anywhere..   Hugs   C

      I live in disphoria full time and can say doing constructive things you are good at. For example i try as hard as i can at my Job that makes me feel good. I also think feeling bad can be good because when you achieve your goal makes the victory worth it.

      100% Can confirm this happens. Due to being weak willed when it comes to ruining myself I am trying a 3 pronged attack of: incentives, exercise and food changes. I have a summer dress I want to fit into that hangs prominently in "that" closet. A picture of me running at a parkrun up on the sweet treats cupboard (that I try my best not to fill too often)   I am currently kickstarting myself with the couch to 5k app, I felt great at the beginning of the year when I could complete a 10km ( Doing c25k again, but this time I'm being chased by zombies)    I have ordered a 3wk meal replacement plan that worked in the past until I started feeling good enough about myself to start ordering pizza and fell back to where I am now. The problem when you do not like yourself is that stodgy comfort foods offer that temporary hit of endorphins and nostalgia before kicking you back to the curb. They're also so much cheaper and easier to get hold of than good tasting healthy alternatives. Also for me personally it is a form of subconsious self sabotage and self loathing/transphobia - If I finally start to look how I want to look in the mirror it removes the excuse to stay safely as I am. You just have to keep trying.  💛

      I totally understand about the hospital thing I am the same way. I had to get an ultra sound done earlier this month and going to the diagnostic center was like going to the hospital. They did have things all set up well because there were very few people there.
    • Jackie C.
      Yeah, that's on my list for "things I'd like to do." The GCS cleaned me out though. It'll be a minute before I can afford it. Also avoiding hospitals for the apocalypse if I can.   Hugs!

      There is always fat transfer if you have the funds to go that route.

      Saving now is a great idea, even if you decide not to have surgery, you'll have yourself a nice little nest egg to treat yourself.

      I agree with Jani, those closest to us have the largest adjustment required because of their investment. This, my wife keeps reminding me of, is why she is still not able to accept me fully as I am. It will be a year next month since I came out to her. Everyone moves through the grieving process at different rates.   As for telling your parents, I am again with Jani and Jackie, if there is no real benefit to you in telling them and finding out finally one way or another whether they will support you. It would be much better to build a good solid support system from those you know will likely be on your side, before you come out to your parents, if you're doubting it will go well.

      Hi Holly, I agree with the others, you have nothing to feel guilty or ashamed of in trying to be yourself. As difficult as it is, the decision to transition should be yours alone and your health and well-being should be at the forefront of that decision. It is then your SO's decision if she can maintain the relationship. It is quite a change for both people in a relationship and it will take time to figure everything out. If she hasn't ended the relationship yet, that is a good sign that there is a chance for it to work out. Open and honest communication is the only way forward. Remember that both of your feelings are valid. I have been working on keeping my marriage of 13 years, since I came out last summer to my wife. It is still very rough going at times.   Patti, that is probably best discussed with legal council. I am not certain the ramifications to you if you fail to disclose, both through the courts and your medical board. The one thing you have in your favour with confiding in your attorneys is client-attorney privilege, so there should be no harm in seeking their advice, other than more expense for the consult. If I was in your shoes, I would be keeping my attorney fully in the loop and following their guidance. I can tell you that perjuring yourself is not a great idea, if you are required to testify under oath, tell the truth.
