I guess my hair is pretty. And I guess my hair is pretty fun. And I guess my hair is pretty fun – to play with! So that’s what Cruz did. She played with it. She played with it so hard (TWSS). I’m currently getting the flu out-of-the-way in an organization kick, so thank goodness I was saving these photos.

Also I realize my Intsagram-ing is getting out of hand, so I’m going to pass the blame to the aforementioned chick.

Cruella de Vil – Pony Stylez by hallaek

Do you have me on Instagram? Do you follow me on Twitter? Did you catch me at that perfect time in the night to pry my secretive hair plans out of my cold, shut lips? If you didn’t know then, you know now: I’ve my little pony-ed myself. Some celebs have done it, although only Lauren Conrad comes to mind, but I’ve seen other nameless hotties with rainbow hair posting pictures à la Lookbook. I originally saw the trend and figured, being a natural dark brunette, that a red or blue would be easier on my hair, but I was told otherwise so I figured fuck it – let’s go blonde. (As a blonde with crazy hair my language has become much more crude…that’s a lie.)

I have to thank the very patient Susan at Taz Hair Co. who even mixed together colours to match my likings (but the colours in her tattoos were phenomenal so I knew she’d be the one). And we just happened to find that McDonald’s edition My Little Pony in my basement, kismet.

P.S. These photos and the next batch were taken by Christianne – in case you want to hire her for weddings, or bat mitzvahs, or boudoir photos…
P.P.S. There are some really awesome shoes coming up, and my new friend, Ralph.

SHUT UP, I’M DOIN’ IT. by hallaek

I’m dying my hair red. And I’m not sure the look I’m going for is all that natural. In fact, I would prefer a red that is bright, or cherry-like, or if not those then the other extreme: pinks. Maybe a raspberry…if that’s a thing. I like the idea of dark brows with a hue that is clearly not the root of those brows. And since my brows of late have been much more Russian prosti-tot than normal person, my head of hair is basically crying to be dyed some cray colour. Did I mull over blue? Of course. My first instinct will always be blue since that time in grade six when I begged my mom for blue highlights and was denied – it’ll happen one day, mom! Moving on, red/pink/whatever is the colour this time and I’m a big kid now so suck it (mom). She’s actually in full support, she’s just a blue-bigot. …Why am I talking about my mother?

I like these pictures.

I’ll be asking the advice of the lady who made me blonde, don’t want to mess with my natural beauty or nothin’. And this is the aforementioned she:

She’ll know what to do, right? Whatever, it’s happening.



My idols have short hair. by hallaek

But that certainly does not mean I should. Where am I going with this? My hair has been cut. For the first time in over a year (it was getting a bit too hippie-esque). Anyway, I went way too far. My hairdresser also went way too far when she made the lone decision to chop my bangs off. I asked for a long bang, and would’ve loved a heads up before I looked up and saw my short little baby bangs, but alas… You know those hairdresser bangs? You definitely do. They’re short, and jagged, and edgy (although I obviously disagree, hello italics), anyway whatever they are they only work in haircut magazines, or haircut photo shoots; somewhere where ‘piecey’ cropped bangs look almost cool and not completely ridiculous. (You guessed it, mine look completely ridiculous.)

Tila was dying of laughter as I explained all the facets of my worst haircut to date (WORST), and even a Dove commercial caught me (again, while I was on the elliptical…stop laughing). Dove told me more than 50% of girls/women avoid social situations because of their appearance. I suppose right now I’m going against everything that started this blog, but never once did I discuss hair. Is hair different? Should I say screw it and rock my Liz-Lemon-Dealbreakers-era haircut? Probably. But suck it, I’m going to be self-conscious about this one thing, OKAY. Look to decapitated pictures or, as I pitched to my handy sidekick, “I can use Photoshop now, let’s just put your head on my body for the next month.” She’s not keen.

On to better and brighter haircuts:

Print My Idol

These t-shirts are printed by my friend, Nathalie, from Queen’s. She’s just opened up a store on Etsy where she’s selling them. She’s really cool, like, super cool. Just one of those people who came out of the womb cool and never had to work at being cool like the rest of us suckers. Cool.
I love the look of the huge print on the t-shirts, it looks almost abstract, but you can still support your idol without it being too “graphic tee-y”. Another cool thing? She takes requests. I obviously jumped in with a flurry of old school designer names, and I’m very excited to see the upcoming Roger Vivier and Yves Saint Laurent ones. Who am I thinking of next? My short-haired idols of course: Liz Lemon and Ally McBeal.
P.S. Note the Coco Chanel tee has metallic foil for the ember of her cigarette, how slick would that look with some too-high heels, and blazer! (No pants obviously.)

Check it out: Print My Idol.

All for now, back to the domestic dispute with my fringe.
