        Definitely look into getting wet & wavy type hair. This way should you get it wet, it'll still look fab. And if you decide to blow it out, all you have to do it curl it and waa la!

            I don't wear makeup often, but when I do, I use MAC.  I, too, have oily skin.  I am planning on using the MAC Fix +.  Have you tried this before?  It's supposed to set your makeup for the day and keep it fresh. 
             


             

            So I went to the MAC counter at Macys and the women there kept saying that the MAC Fix would only "refresh" my makeup and not make it last longer.  So instead I bought the oil control face lotion and that stuff works miracles!!  At the end of the day my foundation still looks fresh and most of all it's still on my face.  While I was there I also bought the ProLong Foundation and that stuff is awesome.  It really lasts all day and it doesn't wear off.  The only downside is the colors are bit lighter than the Studio Fix Power so they don't have a shade that matches me perfectly.  So I think I am going to try the Studio Fix Liquid Foundation because it’s supposed to last for 8 hours...

                Hey Mistibuard.

                 

                I LOVE this hair. Could you please let me know where you got the hair from and possible the link?

                 

                I want to do a trail run in January and i want hair that will look good straight and wavy!

                I haven't had a weave since 2001 and don't know WHERE to begin lol

                I haven't been as active on this forum...not as active as I am in the Turks & Caicos forum anyway.

                 

                So I'm beginning my trial run with my hair for the wedding. The wedding is in March. My stylist sewed the weave in last night, and so far so good. I have worn extensions before (2006), but it's been awhile. Anyway, I purchased the Indian Wavy hair, so when I get the hair wet while in Turks it'll just be wavy- and still look decent hopefully. Here are some pics. I'll post some pics of how I usually wear my hair and how it is with the sew-in.

                 

                This is me working at a trade show in San Francisco last month.

                    Thanks to everyone for their responses. Unfortunately, growing my hair out is not an option, I am one of those people that short hair chose me (it's genetic, it's not fond of growing but so long).

                     

                    I contacted Debra and hope that it can all work out with her. I am getting married at the Iberostar Rose Hall Suites in MoBay on June 23, 2011. Is anyone else getting married there? If so, has anyone considered their salon? Is anyone using the Salon at their resort?

                     

                    Thanks again!

                      I am getting married there as well.  I have not been to the resort to see the stylist there but Lisa on this site did a review and said it was a decent experience.  I am not sure about short hair though.  Perhaps you can contact the salon and ask then if they can send you a sample of work they've done.  Its worth a try.
