cut your hair, thank me later

Understated, fresh, effortless  sexy...the cool girl. She wears what she wants. From her father's old sweater to next season's prints, always managing to pull it together juuust right. Envied and emulated, she doesn't try to be cool...she just is. Alexa Chung, Kate Moss, Ashley Olsen and Keira Knightly are just some of my go-to's for inspiration. Whether on the street, in the magazines or on the red carpet one common thread runs between this exclusive group of babes...the hair. More often than not its a tomboy, almost androgynous, cut. An asymmetrical shag/bob hybrid. It features a center part and collar bone-grazing, razored ends that's ever so slightly longer in the front. The kind of hair cut that demands an "I-just-rolled-out-of-bed" routine.

So when my hairstylist suggested this type of hair cut I said F-it and let him run with it, well not literally run.with.shears...but you know. Naturally being a blunt bang/long haired gal ever since a horrific pixie cut experience I was biting my nails at first. Once I saw my security blanket of hair hitting the salon floor I started getting butterflies, equal parts nerves and excitement. I remember thinking "life's short, cut yo hair!" Looking in the mirror for the first time I saw the perfect "cool girl" haircut reflecting back. In a city full of blonde, beauty-pageant worthy, weaved-in hair I now feel mysterious. Sexy. I feel like a cool girl.

My Routine...
Quickly run flat iron over ends. Flip head over. Spray dry shampoo into roots. Flip head up. Center part. Srunch/rub roots. Prepare yourself for cat calls and double takes.

Make it Cooler...
Save your shampoo and skip a few days, this cut looks even better dirty. Color? One word. Ombre.

  2. Advertising is your main tool to have the business ready to go. Actually, everybody is busy in their company marketing over the World Wide Web. Unfortunately, online company is scammed with scammers. On occasion the provider hires you freelance, or occasionally it is a site designer which orders the copy google At an identical time, if you decide on the most suitable company having excellent reviews and reputation, you will enjoy well composed works.

  3. I love short haircuts too. Well, i think that the long hair can look great, but it's not my story. I'm to lazy to spend a lot of time and too poor to spend a lot of money to make the long hair look good. So i wear the bob. And happy about that. According to the rating of Essaythinker.com bob is very popular nowadays

  4. What sort of a nation have we progress toward becoming where a college alum with exhaust takes begins their working life troubled with an obligation that will take them decades to pay off? On the off chance that there was ever motivation to defrock legislators, it is for their inalienable failure to evacuate the unnecessary hindrance of obligation that blocks the best and the brightest, the most eager and imaginative among the lesser monetarily enriched. check cashing san diego
