Okay, so who doesn't love Alexa Chung? (don't you dare)
So while I could talk endlessly about her fashion icon title, clothes and overall coolness, I come to you today to talk about her HAIR. For me, it just brings the whole lot together. Her unconventional beauty, her style, her attitude, and her hair, it's all too much for me to process.
I've always wanted really cool short hair. I mean I loved my long locks but they were so
DRAB (André Leon Talley biatch!) and did nothing for me. It was bland and didn't bring the kind of attitude or style that my clothes do so I decided that I needed a change. For inspiration, Alexa Chung sprung to mind.
So I went to the salon, showed them pictures of Alexa, and chop, chop, chop... I now have bangs and short hair!! Wippeedeedoopdapday! You shall see this new hairdo sooon :)
Okay last thing, I have one complaint. There's always got to be a 'but' right? I love my new hair but I've always wanted to have the shaggy, tousled look Alexa has but it just doesn't flow that way because my hair is naturally pretty curly. If you look up "how to get alexa chungs hair" (yes, I did do that) her stylist, George Northwood always says rough dry and add a texturizing spray- which I bought especially to do this - and then to use tongs in random sections; when I do that...my hair just blows up into a frizz ball afro, and so I straightened the whole thing then used tongs in random sections. Next day, I just threw the whole thing up into a bun. Lovely.
New year, new me...in the physical sense of the word.
Are you planning on any hair makeovers soon? Let me know :) If you're hesitating, I say go for it!
