so a new year has bloomed right before our very eyes, my friends.
i feel like only yesterday i was listening to soundgarden and putting all my hair up except two little whispy bangs that would frame my angry face.
where in the world will hair go this year? is it possible that style will come back and i’ll be all like “ugh, those kids wearing that stupid hair cut don’t know that it’s already been cool”. chances are slim. but here is what i think will happen and in no particular order.
now i could vomit in my hand from hearing that freakin show name said (too much press can kill something just as fast as not enough), but i totally dig a well coiffed head of hair, and i think it’s about time we look to putting some effort into our locks. there aren’t many things i’d reproduce from the early-1900s but those framing tresses… i’d do her.
Closely Sheared but Slightly Shaggy Shirley-
long is forever, blah blah blah, but this year is the year of the cut it and forget it girl! if you’ve been waiting to take the plunge this is the year, because everyone is going to reverse mullet this shit. super super short back and longer in the front. i call it the pre-teen lisa bonet. you want some length to get funky with but you love the idea of nothing on your neck but the hot sun.
now i hear the kids talking about that lana del rey and her perfect locks and that is great, but the way to everyone’s heart is through effortlessly shaggy hair. if you can make all the boys in the yard believe that you don’t own a hair brush, good for you. the smart ones KNOW what it takes to look like you care so little.
now i don’t want to hear no bitching about “haley you didn’t include color” or “haley what about streaks in my hair?”. that is for another time and place because i don’t believe color is big in 2012. i think we’ll see people going back to the ol’ natural look. nothin stark or crazy. i could be wrong. i’m probably not.
