The New Me


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!
(Or let the hairdresser find you on public transport. :)

(Sorry for not crediting the pictures, I've been collecting them for a while 
but didn't plan on blogging them...)

Wearing: Thrifted coat, skirt, H&M shrug, Zara top, Calzedonia tights, 
clip-on earrings from a 1 Euro shop, oh, and you can't see my shoes...)

Great hair! Absolutely gorgeous - and I love the outfit.

Marisa Violeta said...

Oh, I wish I had the courage to do the same!
It looks amazing on you and looks so easy and fresh!

The Waves said...

Oh wow! You look great! I had a pixie cut a few years back and I loved it... and now I'm really missing it! :)

Dizzy Tea said...

You look absolutely lovely! So so so stylish and charming, this cut looks so good on you, and congratulations for your bravery, may I add? I'd never have the guts to cut my llong hair that short, haha! Just beautiful xxx

marianne m said...

Checking out your latest posts, i love your hair color i wish i was brave enough tohave my hair so red, but i only just got reddish brown hair and it was such a big step for me. i am so jealous of your hair right now as well, i could never pull off that short hair my face is too round to pull it off. but i loved carey's and sienna's hairstyles and i love yours. thanks for sharing with us.
p.s i am trying to get my blog a bit more popular lately, wishing to get more people to check it out and in case they actually find it interesting which i hope they do, for them to stick around and possibly follow as well.
my goal is to reach 230 gfc and 60 bloglovin followers one day. and i so hope to make it come true. hope that you could check it out and possible help me out?http:// lureofthedarkside.

Madeline, Girrrllllllll!!!!!!! Your hair looks amazing like that. Not everyone can pull it off, but it sure looks amazing on you. It is very chic,sassy and edgy. this cut really brings out you features more. It has been years since I have worn short hair,but you make me want to cut mine too:-)

Loren Cline said...

So cute. There's something really freeing about a new hair cut, you feel like a whole new person. Is this your natural color? Or are you really blonde underneath?
Or is that rude to ask?

joni said...

Well, I love it!! Mess it up and it will be cute too!

Kira said...

It looks so good, love the cut!

BoulevarddelaMadeleine said...

Love, love your new hair cut. It looks so cute. Yay for change. So much fun.

SkippySays said...

Ahhhh- your hair looks absolutely incredible!!! Good for you girl! I hope I can be that ballsy one day :)

Madeline Quaint said...

Thank you! :)

Madeline Quaint said...

Thank you for both! :)

Madeline Quaint said...

If you're really tempted, you will get the courage - in my case it took me a year I guess. :)

Madeline Quaint said...

:) I'm glad it makes you wish for short hair too! That's a good sign! :)

Madeline Quaint said...

Thank you so much Ipek! If you really want short hair, the courage will come. :)

Madeline Quaint said...

It's very easy to try out a redder hair color - if you don't like it, just dye it again in a week. :) Cutting your hair short is a bit more problematic as it won't grow back for a year... :D

Madeline Quaint said...

Thank you so much! One of the reasons I had it cut was not to hide behind my long hair. :)

Madeline Quaint said...

Not rude at all. :) My original hair colour is dark blonde-light brown. I used to call it "potato" colour. :) I went blonde for years but always wanted to be ginger. It's more a part of me now than the lenght of my hair, as you can see. :)

Madeline Quaint said...

Yep, I'm looking forward to mess it into silly hairstyles. :)

Madeline Quaint said...

Thank you!

Madeline Quaint said...

Thank you so much! :)

Madeline Quaint said...

Thank you! Going to the dentist reqires much more courage, at least for me it does! :D

Lasalleariane said...

I love your hair, you have such a beautiful face no wonder short looks good on you! I change my hair often, i am going for a bob now but in 6 months i may change the color and cut again!


wardrobe experience said...

love your new hairdo. you look great.

Sarah said...

Your hair is gone! I can't wait to see what craziness you take on with your shorter tresses! (:

two birds said...

wow! this cut really suits you. you look gorgeous. i can't wait to see all the ways you play with it!

shyscout said...

You look stunning! The cut really suits you. It makes me want to chop all of my hair off again, but I am trying really hard to refrain and grow it out. That is so cool that your hairdresser sought you out :]

Titine & Totoche said...

Woooow!!! Such a change!!! It's fantastic! (Btw the hairdresser anecdote is great!)
It's so cool & can't wait to see how you style it!!

Feathers & Freckles said...

You look awesome! If I didn't have curly hair, I would definitely chop my hair like this. It's going to be so easy and fun to style :)

Bad Taste Toast said...

Oh wow, I'm a bit late but: you cut your hair?! Such an amzing and radical change, how brave you are! I'm actually not a fan of short cuts, but I think it looks good on you, fresher and cheekier :)

Sarah said...

Your hair looks beautiful.

Madeline Quaint said...

Thank you so Much Ariane! :) It's a great experience to change!

Madeline Quaint said...

Thank you! :)

Madeline Quaint said...

I know! :D I need to buy a load of styling products and get creative. :)

Madeline Quaint said...

Thank you so much!

Madeline Quaint said...

:) Thank you darling!

Madeline Quaint said...

Me too! :D Thank you!

Madeline Quaint said...

:) I'm enyoing it immensely! Yes, it would be difficult with curly hair... But your hair is so lovely at this length, so you really don't need to change it. :)

Madeline Quaint said...

Thank you! :)
