    Default New Hairstyle

    Last night, on a whim, I turned my long blonde hair in to a short VERY black bob with bangs. It looks like a wig. I was going for a Snow White look but it's very Katy Perry-esque. Actually, it's exactly like Mia Wallace in Pulp Fiction. I can't decide if I like it or not.

    Also, I find that only half of my wardrobe looks good with the new hair and while I do like the new hair it isn't really my style so I don't know how long I'm going to keep it. Therefore, I don't want to buy all new clothes to go with my new hair color and then have those clothes look weird with my blonde hair. Plus, I'm not quite sure how I want to style it. It could be very Parisian or chic or pin-up depending on the outfit. How would you guys style it? Any advice would be appreciated.

    Makeup tips would also be wonderful since I just bought my fave MAC lipstick and it looks HORRIBLE with the new hair color. I'll need to go makeup shopping again.

    need pics. you can blur out your face if you want to, but it would help to see before & after pics of the hair.

    Skin tone is ridiculously pale with pink undertones. I'll post pics when I get home.

    Wow, what a drastic change. I am curious to see. I'd never have the nerve to do something that drastic.

    Okay, you're going to have to warm things up a bit. Is it a blue black or a flat black color?

    A pale lip gloss that popped and was complimentary when I was pale (still am) with blue/violet black hair was MACs Nymphette. Now that I'm back to a lighter warmer red this lip gloss does not look as good. So you're not going to be stuck wearing red lipstick with black hair but it is a very striking look.

    Pump up your upper eye lashes so your features don't disappear. Use liquid or gel eyeliner on top (thin line in day, thicker at night), lots of mascara. Trick: lift up your upper lashes and also line under the lashes, makes them look crazy thick. Look at the mascara mag ads, most do this! Do a vanilla/taupe eye, don't need much with the eyeliner. Gloss with some color on the lips for day, killer lips at night...red if you can carry it of! Good luck, have fun learning how to re-paint the ol' face!

    I actually envy people who have the guts and poise to carry off bobs like the one you're describing.. I've always wanted to just chop all my hair off but my features are too round and soft. I'm so excited to see the pics... you can be super dramatic with your makeup with this kind of hairstyle. So much fun!

    I was worried, also, because I have a very round face but I decided what the heck! I've been rockin' the long blonde hair look for a while now and like my mom said "if you want to make a change you might as well make a big change."

    Anyways, here are the promised pictures...

    After (not the greatest picture in the world but it shows the results)

    Aww, thank you. I was pretty lucky that my mom had purchased a MAC red lipstick that she didn't like so she gave it to me. I don't think I can wear red all day, though, because I never remember to reapply.

    ITA. In fact, it was how I had pictured it when you originally described it. I think that would look super cool.
