Hair Inspiration

PhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucket
I always knew in the eight years I have been growing my hair, that the day would eventually come for the big chop. That day has now come, I am finally ready for the change (I think). So over the last year or so I have been gathering images. I have always known what the style would be, not too dissimilar to my own, but I am still a little unsure on the length. It will be something somewhere between the above. Wish me luck!

Edit: The haircut has now taken place and thankfully I do like it, thanks so much for your supportive comments... pictures to follow hopefully next week.

Also, I wanted to thank Voucher Codes for including me in The Most Wanted Fashion 100: 2011 Edition. I came in at No 5 in the Up-and-Coming UK Fashion Blogs. What a surprise, what an honour and in amongst such great company. Congratulations everyone!

  4. I love your hair as it is. But understand the need to make changes. Your inspiration is good and as you say not too great a leap from where you are now. Xxxx

  9. Paula, these styles are just gorgeous, ive always wanted to work the razor sharp crop and heavy fringe look but i think it only looks good if you've got darker than dark hair. Can't wait to see you after the chop Michelle has amazing hair which you could totally work to =)

  14. I think it will be beautiful! Just this fall I cut of like 30-40 cm of my hair and it truly was one of the best things I ever have done. So easy but still good looking:) The first pictures look great!
    Love Änglamark.

  18. Ooooh! I understand! I had been growing my hair for 6 years-ish and it got really long (and I even had hair extentions at one point last year to make it super long) but then did the chop into a chic bob at Christmas - it's so good for putting a spring in your step - a change is as good as a rest!

    I think this style will look great on you!

  20. Oh how lovely! I adore the shorter length with the blunt fringe.

    I always get a big blunt fringe when I get my hair cut, always forgetting it looks utterly ridiculous on me!

    Good luck with the chop!

  35. Ahhh, I haven't caught up on your blog in ages!

    Firstly, I can't wait to see your new 'do. Those inspiration photos are so classy, with a great whiff of French sophistication.

    Secondly, the outfit you put together for Spoiled Brat is fab. I love the sweater with long skirt look.

    Finally, erm...you're fab, keep up the good work ;-)
