New Haircut!

By  |  41 Comments

If you’ve seen my most recent tutorial, you could probably already tell that I got my haircut, but I wanted to put up a post about it because I tend to get asked questions about my different hair styles, mostly people asking what to tell the hair stylist if they want a haircut like mine. I find the easiest way to show what type of style you want is to bring in a picture for reference, because you could explain a style and know exactly what you want it to look like, but the hair stylist may see something totally different. Having a picture kind of gives you both common ground on what to do with your hair!

I went in with a picture of Victoria Beckham with her short, super blond asymmetric cut. I’ve been wanting to cut off my hair for awhile now simply because when it was long I just put no effort at all into it. My hair has been short for a good portion of my life and I feel like I know how to have fun with short hair more than I know how to do anything but straighten long hair. The hair stylist put all over highlights to brighten up the color and then bleached the roots which really helped to lighten my hair, then cut it into an asymmetric a-line style super piecey cut. I am absolutely in love with it, it’s so much fun and edgy without being over the top.

asymcutThis shot shows the color a bit more true-to-life. The above pictures make it look much more golden, its much cooler-toned than that.




I like this cut too because it’s really easy to make it more funky. Above is what I would consider more toned down for the cut, but after not washing it for two days, you can see it becomes more fun :)

AsymcutDirty hair- the best kind of hair to play with. :)

      I was going to ask the same thing, I have curly hair too but I’m scared it it’s too short it will just explode in a poof and I’ll have to straighten it every day :P

    I love it!! I had this hair style done on my hair about a year ago right before summer and loved it. I had fun with it I really didnt have to worry about it but a quick blow dry on the days that I wanted to tame my curls. LOL

    That looks like the haircut I’ve been sporting for a while now. The back for sure, the front I do bangs to the side or whole like flapper style. You look cute.

    Hihi, I have the same haircut for a while now. It was a fun haircut, but I am now trying the let it grow (yes, trying haha, it’s hard you know) This haircut fits you to! I like this style very much!

    Love it!, question… is it much harder to straighten it now that is short than when it was long?

    Love it! I had my hair cut asymmetrical towards the end of January after I fell in love with Quorra’s cut in Tron Legacy.

    Ah, too bad if I go longer than 24 hours without washing my hair it gets greasy and limp. Like someone poured a bucket of cooking oil on my head.

    And I’ve heard unwashed hair is easier to style, too…

      My hair is the same way, which makes dying my hair a killer since i HAVE to wash it every day. I’ve found using conditioner only on my ends helps a tad, but in the end…my hair does as it pleases..which seems to always trend toward the opposite direction i want it to :(

    VERY fierce! I think a haircut like this comes in handy for days when you just feel like not wearing makeup so your fierce hair makes up for it. It’s nice to see you with something different! I’d say this is your best hair color and style yet! The shape really brings out your features and I think this is a keeper!

    This is kinda gonna sound strange, but have you ever considered modeling, espcially beauty shots? You have avery gorgeous and unique face and I think you’d be really great at modeling makeup! Just a thought!

    Love the haircut! Will you please show what it looks like curly? I have long curly hair and want to do something drastic. This cut is very drastic! I know I do not have the patience to straighten it every day. Can you wear it curly at all?

    Pictures really are the best thing to have when you’re going into a salon. And I feel the exact same way about short hair vs. long hair! When my hair is short, it is usually styled more often.

    i tend to just go to the hair cutters and let them do whatever they want so long as it doesn’t hit my shoulders~

    I love your haircut, it’s beautiful and it suits you really well :)

    I always wanted my hair to be as long as possible, but it ended up always being in a ponytail.
    It was so liberating when I had it cut to the shoulder-length :)

    When I lose some weight, I plan to cut it even shorter. Would you mind if I take your picture as a reference? :)

    I just realised this new hair of yours makes you look EXACTLY like Veruca in Buffy, the werewolf chick in season 4 that makes Oz go all funny. Looks fantastic :)
