I think it is pretty obvious that I am obsessed with hair, judging from how much time I spend on it. A good hairstyle and a well made-up face dresses up a plain outfit more than any single accessory can ever hope to do. It’s a personal pet peeve of mine to see someone with an immaculate outfit with lank and greasy hair – why bother putting in so much effort to dress nicely, only to neglect your personal appearance? To me that’s akin to wearing a chanel suit set with slippers.

That said, here are some of the hairstyles I am eager to try out this summer.

Loose waves ala Chloe Fall 2010. Perfect with a loose summery dress, and it wouldn’t look the least bit out of place in the Fall as well.

Marcel waves inspired by Dior. I have always wanted to try 1920’s inspired finger waves, but they are so hard to style! I think nothing channels elegance and timelessness like this hairstyle does. I wish I could turn back time and go to prom with perfect marcel waves.

I am sure I am not the only person that has to deal with frizzy hair during summer time. Take a cue from Proenza Schouler and make it work to your advantage!

A tousled updo like Chanel’s is elegant and casual at the same time. I prefer to do my hair up in summer – it helps me cool down so much, and you don’t have worry about hair plastering to your neck in this humid weather. Gross.

Updos are perfect for drawing attention to hair accessories too!

Alexander Wang’s braids could never get old. I truly intend on trying this out soon – it’s been long enough!

I would rather kill myself and my cat before watching The Hills, but I can’t ignore Lauren Conrad and her immaculate hair. Sure, it most likely takes a team of stylists and the best extensions money can buy to have hair like hers, but I can dream, right?

Not even gonna lie- I would do anything to have hair like hers. It’s pretty much perfect.

Who are your hairspirations? Do you think it’s okay to blog about hair and makeup, or should we just stick to clothes?

    Noooo Jayden WHY! I permed my hair when I was 15 and I regret it till this day. It seriously damages your hair to no end. ):

    I am pretty open about guys’ hair actually. Just no gelled spikes and frosted hilights please. That’s so 2000 hahah.

    LOL! Guys! Hahahaha

    Anws, please, talk about anything you girls wanna talk about!

    I recently (okay, about half a year ago) cut my hair short and I’ve been trying my darnest to grow it out. It now looks slightly neglected (forgive me if u see me!), but I’m doing my best not to go for a haircut. I can be pretty obsessed about my hair too, but for now there’s not much I can be obsessive about… Besides trying to eat well for hair growth and also applying hair mask every once in a while, I don’t know what else I can do.

    One girl’s hair I love is Abbey Lee Kershaw’s. OMG I think her hair is always gorgeous!

    I was debating whether to cut my hair short! I was sooo tempted because I have seen girls rock amazing short/medium hair and it would cut off so much styling time for me. I have yet to muster up the courage to do it, though! Almost every girl I’ve asked with short hair regretted cutting it. I feel like I should go darker though, I am pretty sick of light hair ):

    Abbey Lee Kershaw has such amazing hair. I love her hair colour 😀

    Lol Dawn, initially I really liked my short hair… but you see, after a while I started to want long hair back agn and I realised it takes SO long to grow out… thats when I start to say I “regretted” cutting short hair! But naw, it was a cool experience and I may cut it short after a few years! ^^V But now, I’m really lusting after the GORGEOUS long hair some girls have… Uh, for asians I havent really taken any particular notice of whose hair is nice… Oh! Actually my sister’s hair is gorgeous. It’s so long and thick thick thick ><

    Really? I thought perming would be quite cool! Look at Christopher Lee! Haha! Anyway, I think what you girls can do is to talk more on hair on asian girls too since you have quite a huge asia following!

    Talk about whatever you guys want, just as long as it’s to do with style!

    I actually SHAVED my head a little over a year ago to help raise money for the Leukaemia Foundation and it was one of the best decisions I made with my hair! I found out I look a lot better with short hair than long hair, and my hair grew back so much faster and healthier :]

    Wow! I have always wanted to raise money by shaving my hair too but I have never really mustered up the courage to. Yes, I know it’s only hair…but I would feel so insecure without it. Kudos to you for being able to do something so great. 😀 The most I have done was only to donate some blood

    Haha I’d be scared to donate blood x]

    I love reading posts about hair/makeup and I love hairspiration :) I want long gorgeous hair too .. and I am OBSESSED with the alexander wang braids. One day I will put in extensions, thicken the whole mess beyond recognition, and braid it, AND MY LIFE WILL BE COMPLETE.

    Argh! I hate that most beautiful hairstyles calls for impossibly thick hair. I don’t want to resort to extensions because they look terrible most of the time, but I want big beautiful hair too! ): It’s a dilemma.
