Hair Romance Street-Style – The Parisian Turban

I’ve been thinking of adding a street-style category to Hair Romance for a while. I am always on the lookout for great hair, and I always carry my camera, but I don’t normally shoot in the street.

Except in Paris, one of the most beautiful cities in the world.

I snapped this woman as I was waiting to cross the road at the Pont au Change. I looked across and spotted her turban, which I loved, and had to get a photo of her before the lights changed. She had this quiet elegance about her.

I want to keep her in my style file as this is how I want to look at her age. I adore turbans and plan on wearing them for years to come. With my Chanel sunglasses, and living in Paris too.

Would you like to see more street style hair? I have a few more shots to share but should I keep it as a regular feature on Hair Romance?

YES street style! And you have readers all over the world who I'm sure would send you pics …OMG. Yes. Wonderful idea.

This lady looks great. I'm not sold on the turban look in general but this is really beautiful.

Yes, I like street style shots.

I'm not sure about turbans in general, but this lady is beautiful!

@Megan & @ Emily & @minsurlia – thank you!
Trust me, the turban is one of the most flattering and practical hats you can wear!

Definitely keep the street style feature, and having seen you in a turban several times, I was already sold x

Beautiful… and I love the street style feature!

Definitely! I'd love to see more street hairstyles.

That is a great idea! Especially since we are always checking out other people's style. Or maybe that's just me!

@Sara-May – glad I've converted you to the turban ;)

@Grace – thanks! I'm definitely going to keep it going

@Janessa – fabulous, can't wait to shoot more!

@Avalon – don't worry, it's not just you! I am always checking out other's looks, thats one of the reasons I love blogs so much!

Yes please! Street style gives me so much hairspiration :)


Erica October 6, 2011 at 8:57 pm

Please do more street style hair posts! I see people all the time on the street whose hair I wanted to copy.

North Meets South

Yes, definitely! The best thing about street-style is that it's outside, in the wind etc, on people who are moving around. So many studio shots seem so impractical . .

Yes, Yes, Yes. I love the reality of street-style. I'm personally more street than style but your photos make me feel like there's hope for me yet.

Thanks for all your lovely comments! So excited by the response to a street style hair section! Better brush your hair in case you run into me ;)
