Can you feel the wave of freedom that has taken over our hair lately?? And even more dear to my heart, the curly hair freedom? It’s like the seventies all over again!!!(Or whatever I imagined the seventies to be anyway)
I literally had an instant hair crush for Ari (and a general model crush) not just because her hair made her stand out of the crowd at the Sonia Rykiel show last season in Paris, but also because it takes real guts to wear short curly hair like that. It’s really cool.
So I did what you do when you have a crush, I went and stalked her Insta way deep where you want nobody to find you and pray you won’t like a photo by accident, and I found photos of her with long hair, where she was, OK, ABSOLUTELY SUBLIME as well, but I have to say, not as strikingly special as with her new hair. Just sayin’.
And that’s not even because I’m on the short hair girl team anymore, since I’m presently letting my hair go through a natural phase of growth and that it’s now, mmmmmm, how to describe… A bowl of curls around my head. With sort of bangs. Not so different from Ari but longer in the back. I like it! Chris likes it! (I think it might be because he secretly not so secretly would like my hair to be long (most guys secretly do) but in the mean time, who cares! He likes it !
And Ari is not the only one. Hair is free right now. Long, short, curly, straight, it’s all about embracing it and being yourself.
We have photos here to prove it. You can have fun with your hair, have a curly bang like uber cute Amirah if you’d like (unimaginable a few seasons ago, the curly bang is everywhere! Remember Irina?) and we’ve also seen more and more… Completely shaved cuts, like on the beautiful Jen, which is probably the epitome of hair freedom. I’m all for it.
I think girls (and boys) should have more fun with their hair. It grows fast, trust me, and there is nothing more exciting and fun and life changing than having a new face. And since it’s January, what about a little life change?
I was watching Revolutionary Road yesterday (I don’t know, one these days where you feel like watching a movie that’s gonna make you want to kill yourself. Amazing movie though) and was admiring Kate Winslet’s blonde and I was like, hey, after all, WHY NOT, huh?
Ok, by now, time to whip my free hair back and forth.
