Another hair dilemma...

The time for my next hairdresser appointment has come again, and I've found myself at my wits' end: what haircut should I get?! Ok, I know it's not exactly a life or death decision, but this time I really struggle with choosing a short style that would suit me and I need your help!

For years, my hair idol was Keira Knightley with her long, choppy bangs, then I turned to the fabulous classic and opted for Audrey Hepburn's soft cut. While the former worked quite well for me (on days I could be bothered to style it), the latter doesn't read well on my mass of fine straight hair. What to do now?

I scoured the interwebs and came up with three options:

1. A mohawk-inspired style. This is similar to my Keira Knightley style from a while back, and I feel these egdy cuts work well with my regular features. I've always had a soft spot for mohawks...

2. Ginnifer Goodwin's pixie cut. Again, a variation on the rocker chic theme. Quite a fabulous one, and I love how versatile it seems to be... It's like at least three different styles in one!

3. Emma Watson's uber short style. I think it looks amazing with her young face and makes her features more interesting. But I've already been called a gentleman in a restaurant by some standing at my back, so maybe that's a bit too extreme?

Which one do you like the best? I'll be making an appointment in a couple of days, and your opinion is much appreciated!


  1. @Marie Ella: I'm leaning towards this option too!

  2. Ginnifer, def. My baby sister has just had a pixie cut and it looks fabulous on her.

  3. I actually don't love Ginnifer's version of the pixie- there's just something about the proportions of it that seem off to me. Granted, you look like you have much finer features and face shape than Ginny, soo...

    The key to the versatility in her cut seems to be the longer layers in the fringe- might I suggest something like actress Michelle Williams' cut?

    It also seems very versatile, but a touch softer. Good luck!

  4. @loveaudrey: Thanks for the opinion, love!

    @Jessica: I like the style on the left more, it looked great from the side too - the one on the right seems a bit off. Thanks so much for the tip, I'm off to look for photos of Michelle! x

  5. I vote for Emma Watson, but I am in the minority :P

  6. @Larie: Ginny is winning so far!

    @Lillian: Emma's very tempting, especially when I consider how much I hate my bangs getting in my eyes... :) x

  7. I have to admit, I'm not huge on Emma's current cut.. so I suppose my vote's for Ginnifer? I honestly can't think of a haircut that would look BAD on you, though! ;)

  8. i really like ginnifer's. it looks really pretty. :]


  9. #2, it's so chic.:D

  10. @Rae, @Carrie and @Marie: I guess Ginnifer it is! I'll post pictures after the cut for you, lovely ladies, thanks to everyone who voted! x
