Stay

Hair and makeup really do play a role in fashion - whether to amp up an outfit or dress it down and soften the look. I've worn big curls, small curls, straight all over, one sided, half pony, side clipped, and with a headband. I've even experimented once on loose braids. And of course, as most of you who have been following me for a while would know, I've been carrying this long, extended love affair with beanies. Indeed, I must concede, how you fix your hair can actually change the way an outfit will look.

Be that as it may, I have for the longest time resisted any and all temptations to put up my hair or wear a bun in my photo shoots or, for that matter, any event I go to.  Call it a pet peeve, call it what you may, I just don't like the way I look with little hair framing my face. I guess it's because of the roundish shape of my face. I feel wearing my hair away from my face just emphasizes a not-so-endearing feature.

But I've been known in the past to change my mind about long-held personal fashion no-nos like wearing bright printed dresses, for example. And so, for the first time in over 150 posts, I'm putting up my hair for this fashion post (I remember I also did so once before for a beauty post.) Big deal? Well, if you do know me well enough, you know that it is for me.

I guess when you're ready, you're ready. And I guess several sessions with Faces & Curves has given me some self-confidence. And yes, this outfit - top from Stiles Clothing and skirt from Superdry - was just perfect for the "new" hairstyle.

  20. I'm sort of the same way when it comes to hair. I'll usually put my hair in a bun during the day but never for photos. I'm a bit weirded out about the way my head is shaped...
    Cute outfit - the of-the-shoulder top looks amazing on you!
