hello short hair

short hair f

I got my hair cut last week, and I am so happy with it. It's amazing to have hair that is manageable – and curl-able – again! I think this is a perfect length for me, as I can still do rolls. What I am really looking forward to, though, is trying some 1930's styles out.

Here I have just done a simple set, and brushed it out – fluffy, bouncy and long lasting curls! I love it SO much! I am enjoying it being black again, for now, too... but I think platinum blonde might just be calling me...

I really really really really really really like it! It suits you much better than long hair which is a surprise as I was a little worried when I read you were going to cut it all off! Isn't it great having a change? xx

so lovely!! i like the sound of platinum blonde - very Marilyn Monroe, although the black is equally as lovely. Finger waves will look wonderful at this length. love the dress too.

Oh my goodness! I love, love, love it! You look fantastic!
I definately liked your long hair, but there's a certain charm and ease that comes with short hair and golly, it's easier to curl!
Can't wait to see your new hair experiements x

Love it! Platinum blonde would be absolutely amazing. This cut and set really makes you look like a 1940's starlet.

Michelle said...

melody said...

looks good on you! though I will miss your long hair :)

Laurabell said...

I'd be sad if you went blonde again. Its so so nice to see a dark haired fashion blogger. I am dark haired and it makes me sad when I see the ideal of beauty as fixated on blonde. You are one of my brunette inspirations!!!

your hair was gorgeous long, but your short hair is fabulous!! you look great :)

abendstern said...

Very nice! Now I think about cutting my long hair, too...

Hannah Percyowl said...

Lovely!
I had long hair for year, but I just feel like everyone else has long hair and short suited me better anyway. Way to go!

Anja said...

Wow, you're looking really good :)

Schnuersenkelrolltreppentod said...

fan said...

It's perfect :) Glad you were brave enough to cut it!

When I started reading your blog, you were blonde, and I loved it right away.
Black is beautiful, but maybe overrated

You're stunning!

Musing on Beauty said...

Really lovely!

Omega said...

Looks gorgeous and elegant, I love it! :)

harbourmaster said...

Miss Tallulah Porkchop said...

*screams* I LOVE IT. It is soooo... stylish.

sacramento said...

Well done. You look so chic and stylish, ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Natalie Mulford said...

It looks amazing! It's always a huge step when getting such a drastic change in length, but it really suits you!

Yours Truly, x said...

It looks wonderful! You look very different, but I have to say, I definitely prefer this style, it suits you to a 'T'!
Wonderful dress too!

Pippy O' Hara said...

You look absolutely stunning with that hair. I love it :))

Esz said...

Lovely! I'm sure its so refreshing to have shorter hair :-)

Nice way to incorporate that background too :-D

Platinum blonde would be amazing on you - that blonde wig you had showed how nice it could look. I say go for it!

LandGirl1980 said...

Awesomeness of the highest order!

Erika said...

I love this style! Gorgeous!
While I'm sure you'd be beautiful in platina blonde, you are just stunning in your black hair. I can totally relate to the wish for a change once in a while, though =)

magnolia said...

WOW, gorgeous my dear. you're the prettiest woman i've ever seen, really. absolutely stunning!

Tegan McIntosh said...

oh my goodness you look absolutely amazing!! that is how I have always wanted to wear my hair but it never goes like that! Jealous!

Sparks In Spring said...

Aww I have the same bracelet too, so pretty!

Radka said...

Looks lovely! But long hair looked lovely on you too :)
I have the same "dilema" now - I like having long hair, but I have very fine hair, which can´t hold curls longer than hour or so... Years ago I had mid lenght haircut, it was so easy to manage and curls lasted 2 days.

Johnny and June said...

Such a success!! The new do is gorgeous!

Anonymous said...

You look really pretty and lovely, but I will be miss your long hair:<

Vickie said...

your hair looks gorgeous & it really suits you. I do have a hard time imagining you blonde, but I'm sure it would look great :)

Charlotta Grönberg said...

How beautiful! Suits you so well xxx

Marnie said...

Lovely cut. I think you have the same bright kind of beauty as Marilyn Monroe, so I'd love to see you as a blonde with your hair this length! You could play her in a movie, really.

Sandra said...

Love the haircut, gorgeous. I also am a fan of your blog.

Colleen said...

Instant reaction: Oooooh I like it!

Thinking of a similar length for myself (currently collar bone length) and this has convinced me to do it!

Paige Turner said...

Oh my goodness, you look delightful, my dear. The cut suits you. I cannot wait to see how your hair experiments turn out.

Cheers!

I love your new haircut and it's absolutely matching your vintage outfits. This dress is gorgeous. It reminds me of one my grandmother owned.
Have a colourful day!

Brittany_Va-VoomVintage said...

I totally love it!! I just went platinum a few months back (my hair is naturally brown) and it's a lot of work to keep up but well worth it, I think! x

anita said...

Wow! Your new haircut is awesome!!! :O

Katha Strophe said...

Fable said...

Looks absolutely beautiful on you! I wish I could pull it off:( Your dress is perfection.

Kerry said...

You look absolutely stunning Esme!

Janice said...

I love your short hair! Can't wait to see some new looks with it.

The Retro Natural said...

I like the cut! It holds curls VERY nicely!! I'm sorta considering a trim or something but I'm still sorta teeter tottering over whether I wanna grow it out more..ah decisions, decisions! If I cut it, I'll want it long again..fickle humans we tend to be!

Ginger said...

Beautiful ! How did you make the curl ? Are they pincurls like on your tutorial ? :)

Lisa said...

Stunning! I love it! Did you freak out when it was being cut? Or were you totally ready for the change?

vio said...

you look wonderful with your new hair!

Sophie said...

Wow, that's gorgeous! I was looking at Claire Foy's hair the other night on Upstairs, Downstairs and thinking maybe it was time for me to undergo a major chop, but yours is even more ravishing! Not sure if I'm brave enough though! I love sparkly hair accessories in dark hair this length. xx

Teresa said...

Gorgeous!
Your hair always looks amazing.

Lainie said...

LOVE IT!! As much as I liked your long hair-I really like this shorter look on you, and this length is perfect for trying out 30's styles! Simple pin curls too!

Margaret said...

I love it so much! I have long hair and I've been thinking about cutting it like yours. You've just inspired me even more. :)

Your hair looks fab. Think seriously before going blonde. I went from black to a lighter shade (in a hairdressing salon) and my hair turned out like straw. After crying for a week I cut it all off. And then cried some more....

You've set it so beautifully and perfectly! Adore it!

I'm glad you really like it too, that is the most important thing, isn't it :p?

Retro Chick said...

Oh that looks gorgeous shorter! I bet it's so much easier to manage too!

I can' stand having really long hair, mine is just past my shoulders at the moment and driving me crazy!

Emily Baker said...

yes, i love it. i love it. i love it. SO glad you made the cut :)

Zane said...

you look so pretty with short hair ;)

AngeliqueDama said...

This hairstyle suits you better than longer hair(in my opinion). You look younger and what is most important satisfied with that haircut! And, I have to say that your black Petar Pan collar dress is adorable! I want the same oneeeeee!(cries)
:D
Hugs and kisses

I agree with everyone else: it looks great on you! And what a lovely blouse/dress! :)

Jo Shiers said...

Hello lovely lady. You look breathtaking. Thank you for sharing your beautiful photos. Jox

IrishRedRose said...

Beautiful length!!! You look marvelous! I recently did the same thing--my hair was all the way down my back and honestly it requires so much care to look decent. I was tired lol.

I have a suggestion--black is classique, you've done blonde before--you know what I'd love to see you do? RED hair! With that extraordinary complexion and eye color of yours, you would be the most gorgeous redhead EVER, with anything from auburn brown to copper to dark strawberry blonde! (though Rita Hayworth-esque auburn would probably win.)

The other thing about red hair is it makes playing with color in one's wardrobe SO fresh and fun!!!

Merry Christmas and *mrowww*

Julia said...

Never under estimate the power of a good hair cut I reckon!

Looks amazing - I would like to see it uncurled just so I can see the type of cut needed to achieve this look as I think have the same hair type.

By the way I am enjoying your product reviews. I really feel like I can trust your opinion and that your reviews are honest and thorough.

Momographica said...

Your haircut is amazingly beautiful and you are so elegant! I love the make-up. Just found your blog, I'll be a follower from now! Merry Christmas! :)
