Signature Hair

Anna Wintour has cracked it. She knows exactly what suits her and she’s stuck with it for pretty much all of her life.

Over the years the colour has lightened (wise move Anna, lighter colours are brighter and softer on your face as you age) but the cut has been virtually the same for over 20 years. If you’re smart you can try to date her by the outfits but never by her hair.

If you take a look at pictures of her from the 90’s,00’s and now 16′ she barely looks like she’s aged and part of this is down to that perfected cut.

The other parts are probably made up with exclusive skin treatments made from the slime trail of a north Indian slug collected only on a full moon in months with the letter ‘E’ in them. Not widely available for mere mortals such as you or I.

Up until recently, apart from a brief spell with dip dye in the early 2000’s, I have always had long, dark hair. Naturally curly, sometimes straightened.

My long dark hair was defiantly a comfort blanket. Nothing exciting but it suited me and I knew what worked with it.

Fast forward to last week, Chris has chopped it all off and Emma has dyed it blonde!!

I went shopping straight after, aside from catching reflections of myself and having to take a double take, I struggled for find anything colour-wise that went with my new hair.

Cue panic, had I made a disastrous mistake??
Nope, I now love my new hair so much, And you know what – it grows back! You can mix it up and have fun with your hair and then start all over again. A new cut or colour can instantly update your look.

 

 

If you find a cut and colour that you love, and it works for you like Anna, then stick with it as long as it makes you happy. But if you want a change then go for it, leave signature styles to the people who want them.
