Who has influenced your hair?
Ok, Disney did a survey of British hairdressers to find the top 10 most influential hairstyles. Not surprising Ariel made it into the top 10 (and maybe it’s not wrong with Blake Lively having a very Ariel moment debuting her latest red hair). Top of the list is Audrey Hepburn and her Breakfast at Tiffany’s French roll, with hairdressers saying this is the most requested look.
Also on the list are Marilyn, Twiggy, “The Rachel”, Kate Middleton, Victoria Beckham and Cheryl Cole. Head here for thearticle but it got me thinking, who has influenced my hair the most?
I remember in high school watching Brigitte Bardot and Jane Fonda in their early movies from the 60s and swooning over their enormous hair. That’s where my love of big hair began.
I have had so many hairstyles and colours. I love changing my hair, the way it changes your whole look is why I love hair so much. I almost cut my hair again with the swathe of stars sporting gorgeous pixie cuts. Michelle Williams was my favourite.
Gwen Stefani is a major hair idol of mine. I have no idea how she keeps her platinum hair in such great condition. It’s a special hair quest I need to follow and find the miracle answer. Also, how can she appear in public so frequently and yet never have any regrowth? Her hair is a phenomenon.
For my hairstyles I’m often inspired by hairdressers themselves and the crazy editorial looks they create for catwalks and shoots. I try to recreate them in a way that is easy and wearable.
I would love to know whose hair has influenced your hair the most? What’s your favourite hairstyle? Whose hair would you swap yours for? Who is your hair idol?
