Well I took your advice from last time and relaxed my principles - I started blow drying and flat ironing and applying various goos at various times. And that's okay but only as long as my hair has been recently cut. So what I need now is advice about how to communicate with my hair stylist that I really do want it flat, flat, flat, flat. Last time she seemed to think she was talking me out of making a huge mistake. [more inside]
My new 12 year old step daughter is really into new hairstyles, the funkier the better. I have seen an amazing 'do on a girl her age and would like to re-create it for her. I have already straw-polled her friends, but none of them had heard if such a style. Description over the page. [more inside]

Which is the correct spelling of these words: hairstyle or hair style? hairstyling or hair styling? hairstylist or hair stylist?
Is there a resource (web, ideally, but books, etc. are fine too) that shows multiple ways to style basic haircuts? I want it to show a picture of the cut (ex. shoulder-length bob), with lots of options as far as updo's, blow-outs, waves, partial ups, etc. I'm not talking about the 1 or 2 styles it shows in a lot of styling books that are available at the chain salons - I want lots and lots and lots. Is there anything out there?
