Hair today, gone tomorrow

You may have seen me tweeting this week that I got a haircut. I was walking around Covent Garden on Monday afternoon when a woman came running up to me and asked if I wanted to be a hair model. I'd been considering getting a new style for a while now, but wimped out and just got a trim with the Toni and Guy haircut I won as part of my Look Show prize. On Monday morning I'd been on the phone to my Dad saying I was thinking of getting an asymmetric cut, so when the chance to get a free haircut presented itself I thought it must be fate, and I should go for it. So, here's my new hair...



It's a big change from before but I really like it. I'm still getting used to it though, I sometimes forget it's short until I touch my hair and most of it is missing!

The salon was called Òra, and I'd highly recommend it. The staff are all friendly (in a genuine way, no fake being nice like a lot of hairdressers,) and the atmosphere was really relaxed. Even though I was being a hair model, which usually means you get no say in what they do to you, I got asked what I'd like and what I thought of the stylist's ideas. My stylist also worked with the natural wave/curl in my hair, which means my haircut will still work if I don't want to use straighteners every day, which is nice, as I swear a lot of hairdressers are afraid of curly hair and can't do a decent haircut unless hair is straight. So, all in all, Òra is somewhere I'd suggest if you're looking for a good London hairdresser.

  10. A huge change but your hair looks gorgeous! Really suits you :) I had an asymmetric cut about a year ago and it was so much easier to maintain than longer hair - I do miss it sometimes xx

  13. Oh my, what a shock! It looks gorgeous though! Although I must admit the thought of chopping that much off to me is absolutely terrifying, but thats because I've spent so long growing it. It makes your face look so lovely and elfin, and really brings out your eyes.

  18. You look excellent! Can't wait to see how you style it. Do you think getting such a dramatic chop has left you a bit more open to experimenting with haircuts more in the future?

  19. Good on you for taking the jump! I had a v similar hair cut about a year ago!I did love it, and boy did it make styling time SO MUCH easier! However, my hair has grown a lot now and I although so many people said they loved my hair before, I much prefer it (even with the effort) now. I do quite often get tempted to go back to the chop though. You suit it! You pretty thing you xxx

  31. I'm not sure if it's the 60's style peter pan top but i can't help thinking a little 1960's crop would look amazing on you too - like it was like the right hand side both sides - I really like it asymmetrical too though!!!

  39. I think a lot of people think being a hair model gives you no control over what they do to your hair, but it isn't always like that! I model for Saco hair and they always take my likes and dislikes onboard, and always make sure I'm 100% positive about what they want to do before they do it. I guess it just depends on where you go really. I really like this cut though, it's opens up your face more. Lizzie x
