Hairstory

So, I changed my hair again. As this is quite a frequent occurrence, I thought it would be fun to do a little hair history hairstory post looking back at the different hairstyles I've had over the four-and-a-half years or so that I've been writing this blog. Of course, I want this to be a bit of a laugh, and not an exercise in narcissism, so I've chosen as many not-so-flattering Facebook photos as possible. Enjoy my weird face (and hair)!

Wavy and chocolate brown, straight and purple-y brown, long brown extensions, crazy "natural" blonde, long bleached blonde, faux 1920s bob, blunt bleached bob, pastel pink bits, weird faded pink-y red, pink-y blonde (the crappy pink-red took forever to get out!), midlength and red, long red extensions, long orange extensions, short asymmetric orange...

My latest hair style...


I was getting more than a little fed up of the asymmetric cut, as it needed cutting too often to keep it looking non-crazy, so I just decided to have it all cut off short. I'm actually going to have a bit more taken off the length as without styling it looks a bit "mom hair" and I want it a bit more choppy and Agyness Deyn-y. I've also used an ash blonde dye on it to try and get it less orange-y, but it's a work in progress as you can see!

Oh, and I didn't pay for this hair cut. I decided after last time that I'd be happy to be a hair model again, and so went searching on Gumtree and ended up getting my hair cut by a lovely trainee called Harry at Mahogany hair in Mayfair. If anyone is a bit worried about being a hair model, don't be. They ask you what you want and the trainees are supervised every step of the way by a senior stylist. You aren't going to end up with half your head shaved or a mullet (unless that's the look you're after!) Even super posh salons need models for training (the ones I've been to were both really swanky!), so you can get a free haircut in a place where it would normally cost you £££! (But leaving a tip is a nice thing to do.)

  8. this new look is FANTASTIC! not mum hair at all. Makes me want to cut the rest of mine off (to a skin head).
    and i agree about the hair modelling- my sister is now the head colourist in her salon so I've been a hair model about 100 times! Every time my hair has looked amazing.
    wish i had a hair-history but Ive had so many different styles and colours I don't think i have all the photos.

  17. I love the latest do! I don't think it looks mumsy but I reckon it would look great shorter, as you've planned! I am too nervous to go to a hair dresser normally, let alone a trainee, but since my hair is long straight and home dyed its not too much of a problem!
    I did a 'history of silly hair styles' post here!

  27. This looks lovely :) Short hair really suits you actually, I think because you have such good bone structure and massive eyes. I had hair this short once upon a time but I have put rather a lot of weight on since then and my face is way too fat for it now! Good thing about the short hair is that is so quick and easy, and also allows you to be more adventurous with the colour- you don't have to worry about bleaching really, because your hair will grow out so quick anyway. No ratty damaged ends!
