Following S’ recent blog about Vintage Hair, I realised that I am intrigued about people’s haircuts, hair cutting habits and why we don’t think about our hair as much as we do about clothes/make-up.
Celebrities are always reinventing their hair, and because a hairdresser friend cuts my hair, I worry that I get complacent about it. Scarlett Johannsen’s change from blonde glamour to brown poker straight caused quite a tabloid stir:
I got my hair cut last week. I tend to do this every 8-10 weeks and I travel from London to Sussex, to see a friend of mine who just so happens to be a hairdresser. He has been cutting my hair for about five years now and I have stuck with him because he comes to my home. This means I don’t have to endure staring at myself in a large mirror; I don’t know what it is about those mirrors but no matter how much make-up I put on, the person looking back at me is usually dishevelled. It also means I avoid the inevitable questions about my holiday plans.
But when someone has been cutting your hair for this long you can get complacent because you’re in your comfort zone. I have been wearing my wavy hair in a jaw length bob for some time and due to a short attention span, I am constantly changing the way I style and colour it. I do this to reflect the seasons.
Celebrities do this a lot to keep up with the trends and it is a great way to reinvent your ‘look’. Rihanna is a great example:
Then there are celebs like Jennifer Aniston who really are known for their hairstyles, amongst other acting type things
It should be simple really, we wear our hair every day, so surely we should spend some decent dosh on it and to keep reinventing it in the same way we might our wardrobe. It is that one accessory or piece of clothing that can never be put aside, thinking well maybe I will wear it next season.
