Jerry Hall - Vogue

Jerry Hall is one of my all time hair idols. And I got to meet her this week! She was in Sydney with her daughter Georgia May Jagger for the launch of 30 Days of Fashion and Beauty. Who says you need to cut your hair when you get older? Jerry looks incredible and was [...]


The Freckled Fox Hairstyle tutorials

Looking for long hair style inspiration? Look no further than The Freckled Fox. I met the gorgeous Emily while I was in Chicago for BlogHer. She was wearing her hair in a fabulous faux-hawk and wearing 5 inch heels while 29 weeks pregnant. Did I mention she also has three little babies? I have no [...]



Looking back through my Big Hair Friday archives, I can’t believe I haven’t posted these photos before. Brigitte Bardot is one of my hair idols. She has perfectly messy hair – is that an oxymoron? I’m inspired to embrace messy hair, and wear some false lashes with winged eyeliner. Do you have a hair idol? [...]



Happy Friday! I posted this photo on Facebook and asked if anyone could guess the hair idol from their 7th grade photo? It’s none other than the gorgeous Zooey Deschanel. And here are some more pics of Zooey by Ellen von Unwerth. I also love these shots but can’t find the sources from Pinterest. Has [...]

Short hair is a huge trend for 2012, but we all know fashion moves in circles. When looking at current actresses for hairspiration I found myself stumbling across vintage photos that were even more inspiring. I have been obsessed with Pinterest again lately, and have started a new board for Short Cut Saturday.   Pinterest [...]

You’ve got to love Beyonce. Well, I do. I would even nominate her as one of my hair idols. It’s been a big week for her, becoming a mum and all, so I thought she should have Big Hair Friday too. One thing I would like to point out, is that you shouldn’t feel envious [...]



Yasmin Sewell – Hair idol to curly girls. Not only is Yasmin a style icon, she also has idol worthy hair. The secret to her hair is working with her natural curl. Rather than fighting her curls and trying to straighten them into submission, she’s embraced a style that works with her hair. It doesn’t [...]



Last week I stated that short hair is more versatile than long hair. My first argument was that you can play around with colour more often and more easily in short hair, making it more fun. This week I build my case for short hair versatility with the example of the gorgeous Marion Cotillard. If you’ve ever wondered, what can I [...]

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 [...]

I was saddened to hear of the passing of Elizabeth Taylor. She was a true Hollywood great. This Avedon portrait is stunning. By the time she won her first Oscar at age 28, Taylor had been married five times. “What do you expect me to do? Sleep alone?” she said. A true icon. My Dad [...]
