dream hair


A good friend of mine just got a Louise Brooks-style haircut and it got me thinking about hair. Despite my somewhat static hairstyle, I actually have quite a sizable hair inspiration folder. As you might guess from some of these, my mind has been on soft curls for quite some time now... Any ideas on how to make that happen?

  1. As a naturally curly girl, I can tell you it can be frustrating to have those curls! I love your inspiration pics though.

  4. I got a perm a couple years ago when I had short hair. It was so fun! It wasn't one of those 80s jerry curl type perms, but something more soft and natural. If you're thinking of curly hair I would definitely recommend trying it out for a couple months.

  5. Love this hair but it looks like a lot of work. I wish my hair would look as good like those in the photos when I wake up.

  10. Loving this inspiration, particularly Louise Brooks 1920's bob! I've always been drawn to that look. The soft curls are so lovely though. I could totally see you with any of those looks.

  11. Love Louise Brooks! (As you may have guessed from my avatar ...)

    As for soft curls, perhaps Whoorl's loose waves tutorial? http://whoorl.com/archives/9784
