Let me tell you a little something more about my hair. Imagine the exact opposite of the perfect blow-dry, an untamed and tangled bunch of an undefinable color – some call it blonde, I want to believe I am a brunette.

There was a time I used to really style it every morning, smudge all kinds of products into my roots and smear some extra in the ends to make sure everything stayed in place, just to come to the conclusion that after about 10 seconds on a bicycle in Dutch weather would make it look like I did not even take the effort to brush my hair. After a decent while, I just gave up.

Now I just like to put minimal effort into it and sometimes I literally do not even touch a brush. I gave my hairdresser the task to cut it in a way that does not need much work, imagine how much daylight my hairdryer gets on an average weekly basis – zero to none.

It saves tons of time in the morning, which means extra minutes for a good breakfast. After all that is the most important thing to start a new day. Better skip the hair than the yoghurt, right? Do not get me wrong, I believe hair can do a lot (read: a lot) for your look, but I like it this way. A little messiness can do no harm and equals that perfect amount of je ne sais quoi.

  1. Personally, I love styled hair that had a run through the weather. Non-styled hair that had a run through the weather can look dirty instead of messy

  2. Ik hou de laatste tijd ook meer van die effortless-look! Misschien omdat m’n haar nu ook wat beter valt dan vroeger nu het wat langer is en mooi is geknipt. Ik vind het jou in ieder geval heel mooi staan!

  3. So true, ik vind je haar geweldig! Helaas ben ik ‘gezegend’ met haar dat altijd netjes valt :S Sommigen zijn daar blij mee, maar die perfecte messiness ga ik dus niet bereiken haha.


  4. Sabrina, je haar zit super, maar de echte killer is die leren broek!!! Je inspireert ons allemaal met je outfits, maar ik geloof nog niet (helaas) dat we allemaal al een (echte) leren broek/legging hebben, maar ik ben overstag, ik heb er nu 1, dankzij jou!

  5. Hi!

    What size are your hunkydory leather pants? I really want to buy the same but they only had it in M at the store (too big) so I have to buy them from their website. I wonder if the S will still be a bit baggy like yours. I don’t want them to be tight… :-/

  6. Your hair really fits your style, and I totally get what you mean by the bicycle + Dutch weather creating a coupe of its own! Could you please tell to which hairdresser you’ve been? I have the same type of hair and I’ve tried so many different hairdressers in Amsterdam, but unfortunately I never leave completely satisfied.
