So many sites online...
Anyone have a favorite place for Printable photos to take to the salon, not that many can copy them....my new 20-ish gal has the cutest pixie cut, wish I could pull that off, but not with fine flat hair.

On real women, not botoxed/photo-shopped movie stars too....

I just use Google images, using the Advanced search option to pull the large format pictures to print out. I usually have an idea of what I want (specific cuts or celebs with that style) and input that search criteria.

Agree that Google Images works well ...

I typed in "hairstyles for women over 50" for example and got so many pictures that were a breeze to scroll through.

But then I ignored them all. Someone I knew at church came in with her hair looking just a little different but much more fabulous. I asked her if she had done something and she said it was a new stylist. I made a beeline for that stylist and let her do her magic. She took a lot of time to play with my hair pulling it up, down, this side, that side. She explained what flattered me the most and why. She also explained what would work with my hair and then gave me a new cut/style that I'm enjoying a lot!

I have been collecting hair styles on a Pinterest Board. I assume anyone can look at it without needing to join Pinterest. The Judy Dench is where I am now.

I just did a wth and went for a pixie cut - very, very short. Shorter than I wanted, but hey, it grows. Now I will find out what my real hair color is and everything that grows out will be non-processed hair, hopefully in good condition.

I think if you are going for a short cut, get a newer, young stylist or someone who does a lot of continuing education of current methods. I was not afraid of short hair, I was afraid of a cut that would make me look "old lady" as so many become helmet head looking.

Actually, for what it's worth, I think flat, fine hair is best for pixie cuts! It gives the hair some actual "life" to it, rather than just kind of drooping down thanks to gravity.

((My grandmother and I both have absurdly flat, fine hair and we both rock a pixie cut. ^_^ ))

But some people aren't good with short hair--ask the salon for someone who is great with short hair and it makes all the difference


ETA: I realize this isn't helpful for your actual question...I really don't know; I usually just go in and say "Cut it all off!!!"

2014 resolution: keep track of sewn yardage!! I'm subtracting fabric given away from my yardage in. Yeah!
In: 94.5 yards

Please excuse my typos...sometimes it is harder to go back and edit on mobile than it is worth!

Did find the most printable photos at Hairfinder.com.
In a pixie I'd feel like a Pinhead ! as I am tall, so going for
longer top, shorter fringy back and sides. Dries a lot faster that way.
Why does aging hair have to change texture so much too, we get enough change with the wrinkles...

You can print off almost anything you find online. If there is not a print button, use Control P on a windows based computer or if that does not work use the print screen function.

As far a a good stylist goes, that is tricky. My hairdresser is in her mid to late 40's and has been cutting hair for 20+ years. She is also a regional educator for one of the colour companies. I know her salon does regular continuing education.

I was asking Franny back in the summer why new stylists cannot properly thin hair. My dd had had a cut (at a different shop) and the stylist used some sort of scissors to chop into Meg's hair. What a mess, she started one inch above her scalp, so Meg had shorts hairs sticking straight up though her beautiful long hair.

The younger stylist at the new chair piped up, that they are not taught techniques like thinning anymore. They are just told to use the funny scissors.

Franny has had to teach her younger stylists how to properly thin hair, and I am sure other techniques that were taught at beauty schools 20 years ago.

FANTASTIC! I printed out a picture of Judi Dench a couple years back and took it in to my stylist. That's the cut for me I said and it is!What a woman....what a graceful way to age...looking human and looking wonderful!

If you have a version of Windows newer than Vista (Windows 2000, 7, etc), you have a wonderful, magical feature called SNIP. It's in your start menu--just search for Snip, and the Snipping Tool will appear on your screen. Pin it to your start menu or your quick launch toolbar (at the bottom of your screen), because you'll be using it all the time. :)

You can use it to take a screencap of anything on your screen, and then save it as a jpg, which you can then import into any program (or print directly from the snip). For haircuts &c, I paste them into Powerpoint and print off the slide for my stylist.

(And I just discovered that there's a highlighter function on the Snip. Who knew?! LOL)

I hate, hate, HATE those thinning scissors. I have really thick hair with a lot of bend and torque and I end up with Krammer hair when used.

I would love to have much shorter hair but when they use those stupid scissors it is actually more work for me to style my hair than when it is a bit longer. Go figure.

It also feels creepy when I run my hand through my hair post haircut and I can feel the stubble. Yuck! I feel for your daughter.
