i can't be the only person who leaves it a really, really long time between hair cuts. i mean, we're talking two a year here. i think having long hair it's easier to disguise how badly it needs trimming, but whenever i sit down in front of my stylist, i can tell he's gravely disappointed in me and my split ends. you know that HOB is my new favourite, so when i looked in the mirror a couple of weeks ago and realised i could no longer see through my fringe, i decided it was time for my sophomore trim. my hair looks really simple, but i'm beyond picky about it and also really bad at verbalising how i want it. so my stylist, luca, is some kind of hair god, as i pick up random sections and say "you know...bouncy...layers...not too short", and he manages to make my hair look so good, my friend pavneet said it looked "hollywood on my head". a lot of you comment asking about my hair and how i style it and where i get it cut; my hair is naturally a little darker than these snaps (chloe at HOB takes care of my bi-annual transformation from dishwater to buttery blonde) and naturally a mix of wavy and curly. luca does this brilliant cut where he mixes lots of long layers with soft edges around my head so that they pack a tonne of volume, and leaves me with a huge fringe that he sweeps to the side. (FYI, i was totally rocking this look before zooey deschanel, okay? we both just happen to be more fringe than woman.) the result is something i can style into a classy, curly do like this, or leave unstyled and beachy, bed-heady wavy. my lovely friends dina and alix took these pics - the whistles press day was at claridge's, and we snuck into an empty ballroom to take these.
i'm wearing my monki skirt which i am obsessed with, along with a monki clutch (gulp - please start doing loyalty cards) and my mawi ring. i got it from mawi earlier than day, and i have worn it non-stop every day ever since. do you have an accessory like that, one you instantly fell in love with? i can't be parted from it now!
