I was asked for something new and chic but that will show the true spirit of the girl that is going to wear the hair do.
She has amazing curly hair and a friend recently straighten her hair. She looks very nice with straight hair but when you straighten your hair you will notice that a hair cut is needed.
She has a party to attend to and a statement to make and there is no time for a hair cut now.
So my suggestion to her is go ahead and straighten the her hair but to go for something like the Kim Kardashian.
I think that her hair has tons of potential for something like the picture I am showing here and the change is not going to be dramatic. In fact I think she will have a softer and sexier version of her curls.
Remember that if you are planning on a change for a special occasion you should experiment with the new look to see if you are happy with the results.
So my friend I hope that you go for it.
