I’m still getting used to shooting street style photography. I love shooting people but I don’t stop people in the street to take their picture. Your response to my first street style hair post was so encouraging. It’s pushed me out of my comfort zone but I’ve surprised myself as I really enjoy it.
When I saw this pink hair I had to stop.
You know who always has fun with their hair? Young hairdressers. They are always testing out new colours and techniques.
I stopped in the street to snap this gorgeous candy pink hair. Of course she was a hairdresser and took me into the salon to see her friend who had stunning violet hair.
One of the best things about having short hair is the ability to do drastic colour changes without major consequences. I mean, if you spend five or more years growing your hair, you’re hardly going to risk damaging it by bleaching and colouring it pastel shades just for fun? But with short hair, there’s no fear. You’ll have cut all that hair out in only a few months time and you could change colour again without worrying about the layering effects of all that previous colour in your hair.
I often hear, ‘I’m waiting for my hair to grow so I can do things with it’, but short hair is so versatile! If you don’t want to colour you hair, simply changing where you part your hair gives you such a different look, or use accessories. It’s all about having fun with your hair.
Do you think short hair is more versatile than long hair?

YAY for the street shots :D!!!! I used to have long hair, right above the shoulders… I love it but I get bored… so I chopped it off :p…. now I use it pretty short a pixie cut and yes I think is more versatile, It make me want to try being blond… platinum blond and If I don´t like it I just dye it again

@Kari – I love Ginnifer's hair too. I don't think you need thick hair to have short hair but your hairdresser will suggest a style that will sit best with your hair.
@cclarebear – thanks love! You could color bug it on the weekend 😉
@Anonymous – thank you! I will keep an eye out for purple hair…
@nicola lynde – I agree, loving these pastel shades. And thank you! xx

I love these pastel hair tones so many girls seem to have these days. They are somehow halfway between candy floss and old ladies with week long do's, but somehow look so fresh on young girls. Great shots.
I also admire you for taking your street photos, it takes courage but offers awesome results.
love the pink hair. love to see purple hair next!
Pink hair is the sh!t. I'd do it if I didn't think it would hinder my employment possibilities hahahahaha
Love that you're doing street photography now – very brave but the pics look great!
I love these short hair posts. Ever since I saw Ginnifer Goodwin's SHORT hair, I've been tempted to try it out. I've had short hair (but more like chin length) my whole life, and I've finally grown it out pretty long (for me). I like being able to put it up in a bun on the top of my head…but I'm still so tempted! Do you have to have thick hair for short hair?
