Celebrity Hairstyles

I feel like hair is the last thing I think about when I get ready in the morning. I've even dared not brushing my hair...actually...that's a lie...I should say I've dared brushing my hair. My usual routine involves washing my hair in the morning, and air drying it with the windows down while driving to work. It dries even faster when you're on the freeway, if you were wondering!

Anyways, that familiar "I'm so bored of my hair" feeling was starting to creep up on me again and so I started browsing through some hair sites--the ghd website,, etc, etc, etc...

I'm mainly contemplating getting bangs. Hairstylists seem to be obsessed with side sweep bangs. They always give me this look when I talk about straight bangs, as if only elementary age kids have that hair cut.

If I could manage to keep side sweep bangs like Jessica Alba's on the left I would give them a try, but they always seem to look more like Nicole Richie's hair in this picture where it's almost glued into a curtain like shape and a huge chunk of your hair grows in a different direction than the rest of your hair.

I prefer the "straight and sleek"...The ghd website even has a simple instructional on how to pull this off. Looks pretty good with hair down or up, and the bangs seem to start from pretty far back, so it looks like you have so much hair!

Can be easily changed to hair down with curls.

Anyways, I don't have much patience for hair that isn't long enough to tie back or short enough to stay out of the way, so I'm much more of a straight bangs kind of girl!

Right now I'm obsessing over asymmetrical hems--short in the front, long in the back. The more dramatic the length difference the better! This dress is part of the new collection Bar III at Macy's. I'm really loving their pieces, though the material could be a little better.






I'm wearing a Bar III asymmetrical dress available at Macy's, resin necklace from PONO by Joan Goodman, ear cuff from Zannedelions, and Forever 21 wedge shoes and ring.
