Its getting to be that time again when I need to get my hair trimmed. My hair has been just about every length possible from Jean Seberg short to mid-back long with tiered layers. Most recently, I cut it straight across myself, tired of the heavy length. Now though, I'm ready for a more stylized look. I've been thinking about doing something a little different this time and have been inspired by the many photos I've been perusing on flickr. As I uploaded these favorites, I realized that they're basically of the same haircut from the 1940's...shoulder-length to long hair parted to one side and curled. I guess the only decision I really need to make is how short I want to go!
and my favorite...Ingrid Bergman
I love the Hollywood studio photos from the '40s. These women all look so dignified, but beautiful. And their clothes really fit the ideal that I'm going for when I think about my current style. Its funny...my husband and I watch a lot of films from this period, but I never realized how much my wardrobe choices had come to reflect it until I started blogging about inspirations.
I tried my own version of the 40's hairstyle above today with my hot rollers (which I love, by the way-they're so easy to use and don't damage my hair.) I'm not going for a period look, but just happen to think that its classic and lovely and timeless. Now I just need to find the right hairdresser:)
