trendy trudy and the gang of trail blazers
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.
i was gonna write a blog, but then i got high
enjoy some high hair while i… um… relax
dear dolly - i love you and your adorable dimples!
what up, shorty!
i ain’t scurred of it.
but it’s hard to work towards something and then accept that it might not be right for you. i was a long haired small town girl until i moved to chicago 6 years ago. then i found my style. i had no idea that i was not owning my style until my stylist helped me cut it off, it ALL off.
i played around a lot with the short do and then yearned for a pony. so the grow out began. to make it fun i cut it into a cut little asymmetrical hair cut. ladies (and gents) - if you want attention, get yo’self an asymmetrical hair cut!
where i was
where i am. here is my friend kiki
(psstt she got her hair style idea from beehive, no big whoop)
where i am, close up side.
so how’d it come about? oh man … quickly as i’m usually pretty quick to turn around an idea. so i thought to myself what do i love about my different hair styles. i LOVED my blunt bangs but i love not having anything on my neck so i did some digging.
i totally dig the 1920s bangs, i wanted to really push this into my next hair escapade
i love the soft slope of a 70s pixie! look at how perfect hers is? how could i modernize this?
the first idea was something like this; however, ive got a round face (still got my baby fat and then some!) so until i’m thin this is put on the backburner
then i got nervous about length. what was i doing? grow it out for a year just to cut it. maybe i should keep some length and do a modern halo?
and then i got my legs back after seeing an awesome neck like this!
and some funky attitude like this!
other ideas thrown around were:
(both reblogged: http://weheartit.com/)
growing it out, takes hair-t
ive been a bad bad girl.
ive been tempted to cut the growth… and the temptation was too much. i cannot handle seeing a short cut and thinking that its perfection! all it took was one glance at a short haired chick on the bus and i had an appointment with my stylist. pics to come.
hair is like art. everyone has a style they like… complicated with lots of twists and turns or long and fringe like. i LIKE short hair. i look best with short hair, and honey, why WOULDN’T i have it? why would i work for something that is in style now without knowing if it will be in tomorrow. a good hair style never goes out of vogue (just like a wonderful piece of art).
what’s your hair art style?
man oh man.
it’s been a while, and for that, i do not apologize.
i was on vacation and it was a beautiful thing. and then i came back to a shit ton of work and it was a hideous, monstrous thing. but guess what, i did get a tan. ME? the whitest girl of them all, with a tan!
i got to whip out some of my “summer” lipsticks and give it another go for the winter. i’m sorry but some lipsticks just need a tan… others just need pale skin… but i dont subscribe to this “red heads can’t wear red” bullshit or “dark reds can wash you out” or “orange lipstick is halloweeny”. i think you need to play around with your lip hues to see what is best with your eyes and hair.
love a nude lip for winter. this is my new shizz. ps - this looks GA-reat on brunettes.
(i’m sorry i have to say it. where are her nipples?)
let your hair down
i can’t take it anymore. my hair is straight oo-gly. growing your hair out is the pits. why do people do it? for a pony tail?! yes…a thousand times yes, i want a pony tail. i want the ability to braid it and then let it out and twirl it around my finger.
all of this hair stress has really made me reconsider long hair. i looked dandy with a pixie, trust you me. so - what i’m going to do is go to mexico…. enjoy my thanksgiving…. look for inspiration to work with what i have …. and drink, HEAVILY. come on, it’s getting close to the holidays so let’s all let loose.
maybe if i wait a little bit longer, my bangs will be able to do this… i LOVE this super swept look
hate the lipstick… dig the hair
sarah plain for fall
complication should be my middle name.
i’m heavy on adjectives, i’m heavy on accessories, i’m heavy on thoughts.
i need to shed the extra i’ve decided…turn a new leaf. a simple one.
my next hair cut will have no bells, no whistles, no traffic stopping element, and you know what? that in itself might stop some traffic.
sleek lines and timelessness haven’t ALWAYS been my forte but damn look at these simple beauties who are ANYTHING but plain.
hey hey also note, i have a couple of messages waiting in my inbox that i’ll answer soon! also thanks for the shout out Dirty Hair. blog love to you
That’s why her hair is so big, it’s full of secrets
november is the beginning of the end, y’all. when you live in chicago you know what happens in november: the el stop heating lamps turn on, the fucking christmas lights are strung up and i die inside as i feel the inevitable winter chill bite at my kankels.
okay, okay i’m being dramatic but not all drama is bad. sometimes the big and ugly can be the fire that lights your way to something different. alright so it’s probably not a good idea to live your life in drama, but what about a friday night? a friday night in stupid, cold ass november?
(oh man, can you say delta burke?! LOVE this)
next year for halloween im totally gonna make a costume that involves a wig… like a big, long cher wig. sigh, but this year i’m going as an owl which means im going to tease and taunt my poor locks and spray the shit out of them. my costume is tits. i’ll post pics maybe (probably not).
since i was raised on the ol’ if-you-didn’t-make-it-it’s-not-good halloween costume ideal, i am up to my ears in fabric as im quilting wings and a dress. don’t stress… here are some hair pictures of chicks that look to die for (mmmwwwahhhh hahaha)

foreheaded out of here!
it’s been a hard decision. a decision that took time and heart and guts and a lot of fucking bobby pins.
i am growing my bangs out.
they’ve been quite the pal to me, just hanging around framing my face and occasionally getting long enough so i lovingly blow them from my eyeball. but after 5 years, it’s time for them to join the rest of the hairs and be long and glorious!
growing out bangs could be one of the hardest things i’ve had to do #firstworldproblems y’all! i hate them, they are ugly right now, but i think about the side swept long bob i’ll have or possibly the blunt hippie hair i yearn for… that’ll push me. oh yes, that’ll push me.
bang bangs, you’re dead.
