streaking isnt very common, having roots a differant colour to the rest of your hair is even rowned upon, how about dip die, colour tint or just simply exploring some new styles? good luck xposted over 1 year ago

I would go to a stylist you trust. They can shape it by trimming it and helping you through the transition. I would say highlights would be more appropriate than streaking it or perhaps just warm up the hue of your hair.posted over 1 year ago
From somebody who has transitioned from short to long thrice in her life, the awkward length gets on your nerves, that is true. But opposite to popular belief, going to a good stylist will help. Just, let the stylist know, that you want to grow them longer, and hence he/she will do the cut accordingly. Have a consultation session.
And if you don’t want to do that (though I highly recommend shaping than color) instead of streaking, maybe coloring your hair in a different hue than your brown, can help in looking and feeling better.posted over 1 year ago
Thank you everyone, I think I will go to a stylist that was recommended and get a cut to thin it out a bit, the back is very thick and “chunky”! Now i am splitting the back of my hair and putting the upper part in a barrette, like a “messy ponytail.” makes me feel a little better for now… ; )
When a hair stylist "shapes" your hair, they are trying not to remove length, but trying to give your hair some sort of shape so that it doesn't look like you're growing your hair out. They may need to take some length off the back to give the top layers time to catch up so it doesn't take on a mullet shape. Usually the back of your hair grows faster because it's not as exposed to harsh drying, sunlight, heat styling, etc.
Adding in color could change it up. Maybe don't do drastic high/low lights, but just some subtle changes maybe a shade or two darker/lighter to add some dimension. Hope that helps!posted over 1 year ago
thank you, that is just what i want...i will be VERY specific with the stylist! ; )
