I have a scheduled hair appointment coming up in August and I keep thinking that a more drastic change would be nice for fall. I usually get my hair cut like this:
As I have grown older and perhaps wiser, I have determined a few things that do and don’t work for me. I have straight hair, so I look best with sleek styles. A forehead full of thick bangs does not look attractive on me. And I would never have the guts to actually go blonde.
As I started thinking about what styles I might try, I went to the InStyle magazine website and found this great Hollywood Hair Makeover tool so I could “try on” different styles. It is easy; I just registered, uploaded a photo of me, and began trying on the styles of the stars. I can even change the hair color and add highlights. Here are a few styles that I found to be most interesting:
This Kate Bosworth style is as blonde as it gets. Yikes!
Gwyneth Paltrow is very blonde, so I darkened this one.
This one looks great on Posh Spice - and hilarious on me!
I actually sort of like this Rhianna cut, but being an uptight designer, the asymmetry would drive me crazy!
These styles are fun and it is great to see how I would look with them, but most of them require too much maintenance or growing out. Unfortunately, I still don’t know what to do. I keep thinking about going shorter and darker like this:
But then, I'll probably change my mind again tomorrow.
