After a few days of styling my most recent haircut, I decided I would like even more taken off. I was back in Sam’s chair yesterday to get an even shorter look.
Standing in the rain doesn’t make for great-looking hair, but it was the best light at the moment. The coat is about three years old from Fabrizio Gianni. The shoes are by Calvin Klein (also old). The Samoe bag was from Finley House Couture in Blowing Rock at least three years ago. The jeans are from Chico’s. The scarf was a Christmas Gift. The wine-colored blouse (below) is a Portofino blouse from Express. The coin earrings were purchased several years ago in the shop at The Martha in Abingdon, VA.
When I told Sam I would like a shorter cut, I researched and found this picture of Sharon Stone on Pinterest. I like this style because it is short, and yet it has movement and softness to it. My hair is much too thin and fine to have a spiky pixie cut, and I certainly don’t want a blunt, harsh looking cut because that can look much too masculine. It’s a good idea to give your stylist a picture of the style you have in mind because your words can mean something entirely different to them. When I look for a picture of a new style, I look for a person who has a cut that appeals to me, but their hair texture and face shape needs to be similar to mine to get an idea of how that look might work for me. The side by side pictures of the cut I wanted and the cut I had helped me analyze how the new one might look with my face shape. I know that my hair will curl some when the humidity returns, but there is still enough length to avoid the dreaded gray poodle perm look.
