Street style hair from the lens of xssat street fashion. Xiaohan says: Zanita is a blogger powerhouse, her looks are pretty much street style star ready and this outfit is no exception. Pencil skirts are really under rated and they shouldn’t be, they suit most body types, they show off your curves and don’t need [...]



Sleek or textured – two completely different hairstyles I love from the New York runways to inspire your hair.

Here’s a little look back through my hairography, taking a look at some of the short haircuts I’ve had in my hair history. Last week we talked about whether a reader should go for a pixie cut.

I often receive emails about how I colour my hair, which is extremely flattering, so thank you very much! My natural hair is a mousey brown (I think… it’s been a while since I’ve seen it!) and I love being blonde so I only get my hair professionally coloured. Last time I was in the [...]
