by TooPatient » Oct 25, 2010 My appointment to get my hair cut is today. I want about 6 inches cut off (that will bring it to about the bottom of my shoulder blades (mid-back)) and gently layered. FI mentioned a "wave".... "It isn't needed but it might be nice." My hair is STRAIGHT -- and fine. Doesn't hold curls well (the horror stories I could tell of attempted perms ...) How do I get a "wave"? Is this something the salon should do or is it something I should get an iron for and have to do daily? I'm open to other style suggestions too -- I don't want to go much shorter than mid back (longer than shoulder length) because I don't want to get stuck with a shorter hairstyle for my wedding next summer. My hair is currently longer than any of the pictures I'm posting (I can sit on it if I'm not careful).
