Bold Hair Inspiration
…when we all want to change our hair! Isn’t it true? The cold is slowly going away, the sun is shining longer and longer, you make long walks in the park…
How do you feel about your hair?
I’m always looking for a way to change it anyway, but at this time of the year things get even worst! Shall I tie them or leave them loose? Shall I change colour or leave them in my natural shade? Shall I shave my sides again or leave them grow?
By the way, I’m crap at styling my hair, what I even say “styling”… I’m crap even at brushing them! I don’t even know how to make my fringe stay in place, how to keep my shaved sides actually shaved and so on. So I have been looking around for suggestion and I’m sharing them with you here and now!!
Just click on the pictures for more photos, tutorials and infos about the various styles!
I really love the bun, especially the messy bun! It suits every style and every colour, from natural blonde to green dip dyed hair! It’s that “just out of the bed” look that makes you look sweeter, and at the same time not too girly because messy bun=doesn’t spend hours in front of the mirror. How wrong is that is something that only us know… shhh!
A nice way to keep your hair in place, and have nice waves afterwards! Braids on your fringe, braids at the sides of your neck, one big braid and so on.
Dip dying and ombre hair
This is something that we have seen a bit too much, but it’s a nice way to give your hair a twist and go straight into summer with energy and ready to have fun!
Hey, I must tell someone… I used to have dip dyed hair when dip dying hair definition didn’t even exist! But my dip dying reason was merely: “i don’t feel like dying my whole hair because I don’t want to re-touch my roots every 20 days, so let’s just dye my tips!”. Guess it turned out to be a good solution.
This has always looked like a good solution for me, and it has always worked well! I have both sides shaved and that means less hair to dry, less time spent brushing it, less volume and less hair (I have a LOT of hair!) and a tidier look when you tie them up in a pony tail. Plus, I’ve been sporting shaved parts of my head for 6 years now, and I don’t even want to think about the hassle of re-growth!
Pros: you can bleach and dye it as many times as you want, it will never get ruined because you are always shaving and re-growing it!
Cons: it grows really quick so it’s baiscally a waste of time trying to dye it every time!
Tools of the trade
Some things can’t be missing in a girl beauty case when it comes to hair!
First of all you need a good conditioner for when your hair go wild. I never use it, but I should sometimes. Then you’ll need hairspray. Hairspray for life! It helps you keep your hairstyle tidy and long-lasting! Even if it’s simply to keep your fringe in its place. One of the best hair straighteners: a must, to straighten your hair, to curl it, to keep your fringe in shape, to give a couple of strokes and make your hair look tidier. A brush to take always with you in your bag: you never know how windy it will be, or if you’re going to come back home tonight or not!
Fuck noes and Fuck yeahs
My version of “Dos and donts”: browsing a lot of picture I came across some awesome Do’s of hair originality and some awful Dont’s of hair mess-ups! Do you agree with me?
Love the bleached+mohawk look! | Yes to dramatic shaving if you have the right face! | The petrol green it’s perhaps the hardest colour to get on your hair but look at the results: amazing! | Braids, braids, braids: tutorials! | White hair + fringe: the ultimate combo! 1+ for the pin-up styling.
Red + shave + mohawk + wtf rainbow heart? Fuck no. | Super short bangs: only Rooney Mara looks good in it! | Pointy fringe: come on, goths are more avant garde now! | Crudelia Demon black+white hair dye: no, because you’re not Crudelia Demon. | Dreads: not acceptable anymore. Please!
What do you think about all these hair styles? Are you going to rock your hair this spring? What’s your favourite style?
