You might hate it if you do.. but you'll regret it if you don't - a BOB hairstyle


Hello everyone

For some of you (who know me by my Instagram account), this is nothing new.. but to those of you who prefer this little blog of mine, here's news: I've got bang-bang... bangs! 

You remember the movie "5th element"?
Most of my folks over here do, since it ran twice a year for some 10 years on TV :)
Hence:

No one saw Louise Brooks
(who was my inspiration)  :)

.
.

Others, more "worldly" folks
mentioned a certain "kokeshi" doll:


..and some just mentioned mushrooms,
medieval monks and wearing a bucket on my head..

.
.

I say I like it.
Back in 1924 issue of "Photoplay" magazine, 
the editors chose to print this article:





I too had that question, and 
I made the choice to get the cut.. and make a serious change.

So, now I look like this
weather it's Mila Jovovich, Kokeshi doll, medieval monk or a mushroom-head
I leave it to folks to decide what they think about it 
(all in all - I don't mind)

When the thought first came to my mind, I was pacing the streets of Brussels (the first time), playing tourist and getting inspired. Second time, I gave it much more consideration (pardon me for being honest here): on a long and dull plenary session about effective presence on energy market - an event that took a lot of effort to sit on.
As I boarded the airplane, I knew something's got to change - just like I new I needed to revert to being a red-head. But, again, it was ages since I had bangs.. seriously, last photo of me "banging" was back in primary school.. but seeing so many vintage-loving ladies out there sporting the look and looking gorgeous - I went under the scissors.
...
The result is making me happy.

  1. I think it's because you have red hair that people thought you looked like Leeloo. Plus, do many people even know who Loulse Brooks is any more?

    I think you look very striking. My grandmother, who would've been a teen in the 1920s, always called that sort of hair style a "Dutch Clip".

    1. You might be right there, Dawn.
      Almost no one around me has the faintest idea about the existence of 1920s cinema, non the less to know about the "stars of the silver screen" and their fashionable hairstyles.

  2. Have fun with your bob--I love your vintage magazine pages with all of the original styles of bobs, there's so many fun looks here, and I hope to read these pages closely too.

      You are more than welcome to download the pages (I purposely leave them in larger form, for printing).

    1. Awww, thanks; doll.
      There was a lot of thinking about it-- and., mind me saying, you are the one of the ladies that inspired me to go along with making the cut. :)

  4. You can't beat a good bob - and that is a REALLY good bob. It brings out your eyes beautifully.

    Colleen Moore, who helped make the bob hairdo popular, is one of my icons :-)

    1. Thanks, Mim.
      I took some old school advice from people: printed out images of Louise and Colleen (both adorable ladies from the best era in cinematography!) and took them to my hairdresser. She did what was possible - for my hair.
      I'm pleased.

  6. You look fantastic!!! I think this is such a chic, artsy, fabulous haircut. It channels the flappers of yore for sure, but looks very hat home in today's world, too, especially in avant garde circles. You are rocking this cut and colour marvelously, my dear friend!

    Big hugs,
    ♥ Jessica
