Hair update



This is just a nonsensical blog post really, but I filmed a video today for my favorite haircare products and I just liked how my hair was looking. I admit it's starting to look pretty wild and unruly and I should probably get a trim soon; it's at that weird stage where the layers are starting to look wonky. But sometimes I think this can also look kind of cool! I'm currently trying to grow out my top layers, I still want layered hair but I want the top sections to be longer so it doesn't look so "mushroom-y".

I was looking at some pictures a few days ago on my external harddrive and I found some old hair pics. Whenever I look at these I want to go back to this style...




These were all taken during my student days in Montreal. I had the best hairdresser there, the likes of which I'll probably never find again. His name was Benoit and he worked at Salon Pure, but later left. If I could clone Benoit and have such a hairdresser again here in Switzerland I'd not hesitate a second to go for more edgy looks. But for now I'm trying to go for a more streamlined look.

The haircare video with my favorite products should be coming up soon on my Youtube channel.

  7. I found a good hairdresser in Switzerland. His name is Carlos from Jacques Dessange (Sion, Valais). They have few outlets around Suisse Romande area. Sadly though, none in Zürich.

  11. I love how thick and gorgeous your hair is! I think when it's long like that the long layers work well. I love love love the older cut though!! That's the type of cut I want but it's so difficult to find a hair dresser who understands how to do that properly.

  16. Your hair is naturally wavy, right? The edgy look is really cute, but seems like a lot of work/straightening. Also, loving the current reddish color.

    When you have a short hair cut, you look like Tarja Turunen (great singer), i prefer the long hair.

    Wow, I love your look with the fringe (or bangs, whatever you want to call it)in Montreal. You definitely have a face that can pull them off, and they make your eyes look lovely. I say keep the long layers and experiment with some fringe,but you look gorgeous either way!

  32. My modest opinion is that you look better with longer hair. Sexier, younger, more romantic, feminine... That hairstyle you had in Montreal is nice, but I think it looks better on a bit older women. You can always go back to it when you're older, but now while you're still young, you should enjoy your long hair. I guess I'm a bit old-fashioned, but what the heck :)
