Remember how people always say that you have to see things from a different perspective? And how hard it is to suppress a deep sigh and not to give them THE look? Now, maybe they are onto something. At least in this particular case. If I don’t have any time on my hands and I twist my hair up without any effort and attention whatsoever, the result would be very close to the one shown above. The created effect could only be described by me with something close to „nah!“. Let me throw a glance at the picture above however and you will see me saying things like „look“ and all of a sudden I will break into an ode to the oh-so-appealing careless approach. Everything is a matter of perspective, right?
It has been a while since an editorial (shot) caught my attention. Today David Bellemere did just that thanks to a stunning colour combination (and I’m not only referring to the wavy locks here). Most probably this is not going to end up in your „hair cut inspiration“ folder, but I’m quite sure that it is going to be filed right next to it.

I’m going to get right into the middle of things. I never went for a short cut. Not even once. Not even a little. A lot of small and slightly important changes happened over the years. However I never toyed with the idea of really going for a pixie style kind of thing. I do think that it suits some women fantastically. But I also think that it is not my cup of tea when it comes to my hair cut decisions.
There are certainly a lot of reasons which speak against or in favour of a long mane. One of the things I do like a lot are the options that come with it…and well, who doesn’t like options? That being said when I say „options“ I do not mean complicated hairdos which require half an hour, a packet full of hairpins and a ton of hairspray. What I do mean by „options“ is far simpler than that. Think hair parted in the middle and some subtle waves. Outrageously simple to achieve. I’m not going to complain about that…
Just before heading out for a lovely dinner date, I wanted to share this picture with you. In my opinion, this is the perfect proof that slightly wavy and tousled hair can be truly wonderful.

Some things in life appear incredibly simple and yet, they are everything but. Take for example good writing. The author has probably agonized over this and that word, or maybe even the whole chapter, in the end maybe even the whole book. When the reader turns page after page, he is enjoying the ride: happy and oblivious to the amount of time the person behind those words spent in limbo. The same is true for good design, no matter the field. It all seems so evident like there couldn’t be possibly any other way. It all seems so easy. The key word in fashion would be „effortless“, a word that can be very much misleading. Yet the picture above wants me to believe otherwise.
