Hilarie Burton's Hair

Q: I have just barely shoulder-length hair and I was thinking about getting a perm. I want it to look like Hilarie Burton's hair, the whole style of it. Do you think it would look ok? Can they do the curls like that? I have an oval-shaped face. Plus, if I do get it done, what would need to be done so that every day it looks like Hilarie's hair? Thanks.
A: I'm sorry, but I have no idea what specific style of Hilarie Burton's you want to imitate. I also have no way of knowing whether the hairstyle would look appropriate on you because I don't know anything about your facial structure, build, features, etc.
I looked at photographs from several sources, and the most recent photos show Miss Burton with a mid-length layered cut with some razor texturing. If there has been any chemical processing (apart from obvious hair color) then perhaps Miss Burton has had a body wave to add some fullness to the style, which would generally be acceptable for most people with similar styles, particularly if they have fine or limp hair.

So, basically, I have to tell you that you haven't offered nearly enough specific information for me to answer your specific questions. In order to tell you whether or not you would be able to wear a specific style I need to be able to see and analyze your facial structure and features, and have a clear representation of the hairstyle intended.
