Get yo do’ dipped and yo’ flip whipped

29 Jan

I’ve been growing my hair for about 3 years from a pixie cut, and what a long road it has been! It’s getting close to armpit length and, although long hair looks uber-glam from far away, dealing with it on a day-to-day basis is not all its cracked up to be. More shampoo and conditioner, longer drying time, and longer styling time are a few long hair woes that this lil NON-morning person has a hard time dealing with! So i’m thinking about going with this cute long inverted bob, minus the chunk of purple (or blue, I can’t tell). I’m also thinking about adding some blonde or caramel ombre highlights on the front tips.

HURR

So, what does this have to do with thrifty outfits, you may be asking? As a matter of fact, your hairstyle can be the make or break factor of most outfits, especially the unique finds you purchase at thrift stores. There is a fine line between wearing a supercool outfit with a vintage vibe, and looking like you got caught in a very unfortunate time warp accident. One of the main factors to make a vintage or thrifted piece look modern and cool is a modern or, depending how brave you are, trendy, hairstyle to pull it all together, wether it’s long, short, or inbetween. How about you? Do you mind dealing with the extra work of having long, sexy,  luxurious locks, or do you prefer the no muss, no fuss,  “less sexy-more spunky”  route of short hair? How has a different or fresh haircut worked for you in your style situation?
