I was going to do a post on hair salons in Seoul, but maybe that can come as a part 2. I’m going back to Vancouver in 2 days (and so freaking excited!), so I only have time for a quick post!
I’ve been playing around with the idea of cutting my hair, which I’ve been growing out for around 2 years now.
Finally, I set my heart on doing it since winter is here. I just hate the look of long drapes of hair over layers of thick clothes, scarves, and hats.
These were the exact photos I showed the stylist:
I fell in love with GaIn’s hair cut since the day she debut with Abracadabra. I heard it’s a wig but it’s beautiful anyways.
I later stumbled on Sunny from SNSD’s haircut (which I heard, is also a wig… >.<) and quite liked it as well.
A really annoying thing I can’t understand about hair stylists is every time I show them pictures of what I want, they always just quickly glance at it and say “Okay, I got it.”
Then, they always do something totally wrong. I mean, just because you take a longer look at the photo doesn’t mean I will think you are unprofessional.
In fact, it’s just the opposite.
Why do they always have to act like a know-it-all??
After a lot of confusion, the woman giving me a totally different and wrong and ugly hair cut, me having to show her the pictures again and ask her to ‘look clearly’, me having to explain the exact details, and her admitting she ‘misunderstood and didn’t see clearly’ (or just didn’t look at all in the first place -_-), I finally got something similar to what I wanted.
(um please excuse my messy room >.<)
When I walked out of the salon, I totally loved it (and the color). Then I got home and got a closer look, and was totally disappointed because it wasn't what I had in mind. Now, it's kind of grown on me.
It's more like an A-line bob. Bobs are pretty and all, but it was exactly what I didn't want. A bob. I think I got Gain's bangs, but Sunny's side/back hair bob.
I'm sorry the pictures are not so clear. I took them intending to show the makeup more than the hair (it's an upcoming lookbook post ^^).
What do you guys think? Short or long hair?
Here are more hairstyles I considered or may consider next. Any suggestions?
Top: Myolie Wu (Hong Kong actress). Maybe when I feel like going girly.
Bottom: T-ara. Really, really, really love this cut.
Next time I got to the salon, I might trim the front and sides and have a more boyish hair, but for now I’m happy with my cut.
The good thing too is if I clip the sides of my hair behind my ears, it looks like a boy cut when I’m feeling tomboy.
Next time I write will be from Vancouver! I can’t wait to pig out, sleep, and play computer games all day (hey, I work hard during the semester =p)!
And I haven’t been doing Lookbook posts not because I’m lazy (well, I am…) but I’ve been using what time I have to shoot the photos instead. Lookbook post will be coming soon!
