Celebrtiy Hair Inspiration

For the majority of my 20's this was my hair--

This pic was back in 2008... maybe 2009, a cute "shag" of sorts that grazed by jawline. It wasn't anything revolutionary, but it served me. Then, after turning 30 I decided it was time to shake things up and go short, ala Stella Tennant

True, not an exact haircut copy, but the general idea was inspired by Stella.  I rocked this cut for several years. Then I saw Scarlet Johansson at the 2015 Ocscars:

And decided it was time to for an edgier do' but took a Tilda Swinton approach:

And like Tilda I then started lightening my hair and ended up with my current blond locks:

Fun right? But, I've started to notice that a lot of middle-school aged boys share this look, ala Justin Bieber:

As you can see, it's still a Tilda-strong style, but it's also getting kind of floppy for me:

So I've decided to play down my edgy look, and am once again seek direction from celebrity style.

Basically, I want to chop off the "swag" party of my current cut. Even though it is super cool, it's also a bit "muppet"-like, which of course my baby girl loves, but can come across as sloppy.  The pixie sported by Jean Seberg is a straight-forward and fresh approach. 

Michelle Williams is a more current celeb that has been rocking a dynamic pixie cut for years. I'm going more for the left-hand style of this spread. 

But, of course the ultimate pixie-style star is 1960's Mia Farrow! I really love this look, and it was what came to mind when I started contemplating a change. 

My cut is scheduled for tomorrow morning, so check back later next week to see the results!
