I don’t know if anyone of you noticed, but my hair is getting longer. It has been months since I last visited a hairdresser, even since I secretly chopped a bit off myself. The thing is that I am both lazy at making appointments in that category (the dentist, spa, nail salon (I had to file off my own shellac once), the gym (ok, one does not really have to make an appointment for that, but still)) ánd super scared of hairdressers.
Mine kind of helped me grow over it a tiny bit, but now that I am in LA, I feel like I have to start all over again.
A medium to cropped length blunt chop would be my ideal do, no layers, no fuss. The only problem is, most hairdressers do love layers. Last time I told one I wanted a blunt chop, I ended up with more layers than I could have ever imagined. He almost gave me bangs, really.
Now if even Yasmin Sewell’s curls can look like they are bluntly chopped, it mustn’t be so hard to do the same with my super straight non-voluminous hair.
Wanted, a great hairdresser anywhere in LA that does not charge hundreds and can do a simple medium to cropped length blunt chop. Something a little like the image underneath, though a tad bit longer (shoulder length?) and way wayyy messier.
I have added some extra inspiration to my .BEAUTY board on Pinterest.
Perfect silky smooth, 70′s, wavy hair by TONI&GUY backstage at Matthew Williamson. Now my own hair is not long enough to create the same effect, but for the ones that want to try and recreate, it is easy as 1, 2, 3.
We are already half way through London Fashion Week, but there are a few shots left from New York that I want to share. Like this (sweetest ever!) model I snapped backstage at Kaufmanfranco, right before Moroccanoil finished off the ‘messy ponytail’ look with a broad black headband.
Now what do we think of headbands? I personally haven’t worn them in years (I sound so freaking old when I say this and I know I am still super duper young), but I kind of like them when they are worn in a good, preferably minimal way. How about you? Do you wear them? Would you?
