Yes, it's me. And this is not a wig!
Believe it or not, I've never had short hair before - a chin length bob was the shortest. I can't wait to style it in all sorts of fun ways! I have to say I kind of shocked some of my friends with it, but really I've been prepring for it for a good while. It all started with Sienna Miller's haircut for Factory Girl, where she played Edie Sedgwick...
As much as I adore this cut, my hair would be way too strong for something like this, so I postponed the radical haircut for some time... Then came Carey Mulligan's pixie...
And I was seriously tempted. She has a similar hair structure to mine, so I started looking for pictures and found this, which I thought would suit my type of thick, heavy hair.
And there I was, part enthusiastic, part scared, but very much encouraged by my hairdresser!
(We have a funny backstory with my hairdresser by the way, he came up to me on the bus years ago, offering me a business card. I had very hippyish blonde hair reaching to my waist at that point, which hadn't been cut in years. A hairdresser's nightmare/dream, depends on how you look at it. :) But that was many haircuts ago, back to the story!)
I just love my new hair! It's so different, so fresh, so easy... If you're yearning for a change, a radical haircut might just do the trick! A word of advice: make sure you look for inspiration pictures with similar hair types to yours - and find a great hairdresser!
