    Charlie – good luck. It is really quite simple once you've done it once or twice!Melissa – I had short hair for the better part of a year. The growing out process was what really had me experimenting with hairstyles as I was hiding the hideous mid-length. Before then I had just left it longlonglong or in a bun.Lady – but your hair is AMAZING!
