Hair inspo

I hate my hair right now. I can't even remember when I had my last haircut, and that is never a good sign. The "style" (if it can be called that) is a bunch of growing out layers with absolutely no shape or form, and the ends are so dry and damaged and need a good chop. I've been putting off going to the hairdresser's because I was so indecisive what I wanted but now I've made an appointment beginning of November so I've been looking at tons of hairstyles. I'm sadly no closer to making a final decision so I thought I'd get your feedback. This is only for the cuts, not colour.




I like this Kate Beckinsale style although it does look somewhat boring too.


I think this one looks cute but it's shorter than I'd like but the form is really fun and versatile.



I love this cut but again, I'd keep the ends longer than this.



Love this! Although my hair would need some major hot roller action to get this exact style.



I love this edgy, badgirl kind of style. I actually used to have my hair like this for a while in uni, but I think for now I don't want to get bangs/fringe again.



Sexy and sweet and innocent all at the same time - but again maybe a bit too boring for my tastes.



Very dated color job but the cut is so pretty and feminine.



I love Blake Lively's hair - although I think hers is a lot of extensions.


What do you think? Or do you have any other great pics or ideas?

    Hi Julia! I think the Kate Bekinsale one would look great on you, the one in the second picture. I think it would be very easy to style using your ghd to get the wavy ends, and you hair color is already great for that look! Anyway, whatever style you finally choose, I´m sure you are going to look great

  3. I like #4 the most. It looks very now, and would look good straight and wavy. Best of luck!

  4. I love Blake Lively's hair and you looked great in your "young hollywood hair" tut. I also like the straight cut in pic #4 but that means you'll need to straighten quite often, which is damaging on the long term.

    ReplyDelete
  5. I love the 3rd and 4th picture, and I think you could do them in a longer version and they would be so versatile. I recently cut my hair similarly and I'm really happy with it!

  6. I really like the edgy cut. But also I like the one above it and and the blake lively one. I think those maybe more versatile as to the edgy one. Im a fan of Penelope Cruz's hair style and Jessica Szhor's also.

  7. J'adore les cheveux de Blake Lively aussi! Et j'avais lu un article où elle disait qu'elle avait des extensions.

  8. What if you compromised between the Kate Beckinsale styles and the choppy, shorter styles from the edgier photos? Maybe get lots of layers with a wide range of lengths? Then you have a lot more versatility between curls, poker-straight/flat iron, waves, etc. Though with your bone structure and pretty eyes, I'm not sure you could make a bad choice with these styles! :)

    I like pic #4 a lot. I'm hoping my hair grows out to look like that. I cut my hair about 4 months ago and its mid way to my shoulders now. Though i dont think i will get the same look because my hair is really thick i might have to thin my hair out to get it.

  16. my vote goes to photo #4!!!

  17. I would like to vote for kate beckingsale. It seems it's the best of 3 worlds: a bit of a curl, a bit of a fringe, and lots of length and texture

    ReplyDelete
  18. sorry i meant the kate beckingsale picture 1

  19. I like the blake lively, the sexy'n'inocent and the dark straight haircut on the girl with heavy eyeliner. :) I hate my hair too, and have so for ages - maybe that's just the way it has be for me. hehe. But it also depends on how much work you put into your hair everyday and the texture off it and shape of your face. :) (but probably already know that). Anyway, I really like your young hollywood hair tutorial and you looked stunning, so we know that a blake lively look works on ya! ;) I always go to dailymakeover.com if I need any inspiration on hair.

    Hope this helps - love your vids!!

  20. 5th pic is my favorite too. I think it would be great for you and you wouldn't necessarily have to use the hot rollers. You could use the curling iron w the glove.

  21. Ich finde das dritte Bild schön, aber auch das vierte sieht richtig richtig toll aus. Ich würde eher zum vierten Bild tendieren. Aber es ist wichtig, dass du dir nicht einfach nur einen Haarschnitt aussuchst, er sollte auch zu deiner Gesichtsform passen.

  22. i think 5, with the highlights at the front!

    I think, you should choose the 4th or the 5th style! Those are the coolest all of them! I think...

  24. Ich glaube eine Frisur mit Pony (muss kein gerader sein) würde dir gut stehen :)

    I would choose # 4 and 6. The rest of the pictures are basically just the same, despite the various lengths and colour. They have the parting in the middle and some layers. They're all curled, loose or tight but I would get a haircut that can still look fun and not boring if you don't choose to curl your hair. Picture 4 has sexy long side bangs and medium layers. With added length to it and volume, this style will look very cute and sexy even if it's straight or without major curling if you're rushed in the morning. Blow dry and go. So simple. Picture 6 I especially like because I personally think bangs or side swept bangs look cute on everyone. You can part the bangs on the side to bring attention to your cheekbones or part it in the middle to draw attention to your eyes. The various all over lengths of layers can be fun if you want to mess it up, like in the picture, can look sleek when straightened, and perfect for beach waves or any waves. You can even grow the hair length without the style being messed up. The only draw back with short layers would be the need to use bobby pins if you choose to put your hair up. I hope this helps! :)

  38. #5 is so cool. I wish I could pull this look off. I would totally rock this. #7 is cute too. Maybe if you picked different colors it wouldn't be so dated. Good luck!! Can't wait to see what you picked.

  40. I REALLY LIKE the 5th one.

    If you can, could you show us some haircuts for curly hair some time?

    ReplyDelete
  41. I'd say 4 or 5, esp 4 since I know your hair is usually straightened, and even if it wasn't, you could probably end up with a look similar to 5's.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I love the blonde under Kate Beckinsale.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I love the last and the 4th. They are all pretty. It seems you really like the long layered look. How about trying something comepletely different? Just a thought. You know, kinda like a totally different Julia. I'm sure whatever you decide will look totally awsome. :D

    ReplyDelete
  45. I like the lengths in #3 and #4. But to be honest, I think you've kind of decided on what style and length you want already. The cuts in all of these photos are basically the same or very similar - long layers all over with some shorter face framing ones (except Kate's, she just has long layers). If you get your hair cut that way, you can pretty much style it to look like any of these girls. You just have to decide how short you want the front pieces, and I like #4 for that.

  55. I agree with Simpleagent..... I do love picture 4 and think it would be a gorgeous cut for you. But after all it is up to you and how long you want the layered lengths. For me it's all about simplicity and I've fallen in love with Anna Paquin's hair. That's just elegant and stunning... Lol! Julia, glad you asked? Hehe! We ALL have opinions (you poor thing) <3

  70. Hey girl! I already have something similar to number 4 without the thinner bottom because I have so much hair haha.. But I love it! I am actually going in today to make the front a little thicker so its more prominent! I love this style because it is completely versatile without forcing one to have shorter bangs and it works with my naturally stick straight hair as well as looks gorgeous curly! I think you'll love it!

    The image second from the last (I believe) where you said the color was a bit dated... The cut is a diaster to live with! I had an exact dupe of this style and it wound up being sooo much more trouble than it was worth.

    The problem with the cut (once executed) is that it looks like an incomplete style. I can usually find the time to style my hair but even on days when I just 'let it go', the style still came off looking like I started to get a shorter cut - but didn't have the nerve to follow through. Ponytails had the bob part of the cut fall loose first, leaving sort of an uneven effect, and the bob part fell forward over my shoulders making it look like I had short hair unless I carefull took the time to actually pull my longer layers over my sholders to show I had length as wee (which is also what the model had to do in this pic too!). Ultimately, it got to the point that I had it chopped even (with the shortest layers) and was much happier until it grew out a little more evenly.

    The cut on the blond (just below Kate) would be my favorite style for you. I love the flexibility of the layers and the overall shape will compliment your face much better than the longer layers. Longer layers tend to drag a face downward. If you're aiming for a look to lighten and add life to your face (while adding youthful texture) this range of cuts, in my opinion, will yield the best (and happiest) results in the end!! :))

    I actually like the edgy one with the bangs...The other ones seem too "regular girl" to me. I would always like the wildest cut, I'm afraid...

    Maybe you could spice up whichever cut you end up getting with some color (Never ever blond in my opinion)

    whatever you choose, I think that those hair pictures are: a)made for special occasions(event, photo-shoot)& are/might be photoshopped as well; b) you have to spend some time to get the result, so be prepared to do that. c) as you mentioned, some of those looks are made from hairpieces.
    So use your own judgment, but don't cut your hair short. just my five cents...

    ReplyDelete
  75. Hi Julia, I think the third or fith one are awesome. I got something simmilar going on but with shorter bangs. The shorter bangs help you play with it more and look good even when they're growing out :)

    I'm actually the opposite of yours, mine is curly and i do go through the same issue, nothing looks good on it so I resort to heating tools to help me shape it.

    Don't be afraid, you're very cute, I'm sure anything would look good on you :)
