Sixties Pixie

A year ago, my locks might have given Rapunzel a run for her money but, believe it or not, since my recent cut (live on stage; no mirror - I do like that added element of drama when it comes to my trims), my only grievance had been that my hair was too long (untangling it from my own/other people's elbows I'd become resigned to over the years, but from my own eyelashes - that I can't deal with). So, making full use of my London Fashion Week press pass (more to come on that as soon as I have a minute, but you can check out some of my adventures here), I enlisted the complimentary services of one of Toni & Guy's senior stylists to transform my new 'do from mop to pixie crop (yes, I am now more accustomed to BEING paid to have my hair done, but I was pretty happy with the compromise).

And I love... Aside from the 30 second drying time (and the no-second brush time - a year ago, it was 60 minutes - no joke), the best thing is the effort-free refresh it's given my wardrobe! Everything just instantly looks that little bit cooler, and I can somehow get away with ensembles previously dismissed as too far over the Barbie-does-dress-up line. But my very favourite thing has to be the added pop it gives to '60s style ensembles - now, I'm not saying I'll be packing up my flares and bell-sleeves... (heaven forbid) ...but I am frantically digging out those neglected A-line shifts and mini-skirts - gotta love a bit of fash decade-hopping...

"Shortcuts" to New Season Style...

Every 6 months, we start talking about that "tricky transitional" period between seasons, but I think this month has seen me waste more frantic minutes darting between the Met Office iPhone app and increasing-by-the-second pile of discarded-in-despair clothes on the bed/floor/cat than ever before. But the upside is that all those too-toasty-for-summer-but-insubstantial-for-winter ensembles have come into their own - sleeveless coats and gilets are GO!

And to address the elephant in the post - yes, I have had another little new season makeover myself, c/o my latest hair modelling job - and it's only a tiny bit annoying that Justin Bieber had to go and get virtually the same haircut... and then style it like a troll doll.
