I’ve been wanting to try something more dramatic with my hair for a while so I decided to get BANGS! YAY! I had to get my hair coloured and cut anyway since I haven’t had anything done to my hair since last December. My former hair colourist left town, so I ended up leaving that salon and tried Shibui in South Yarra. Shibui has a very natural focus philosophy for hair, and do colours and cuts that are easy to maintain and look natural for each individual. I had a charming hairdresser, Ashley, who paid a lot of attention to detail when cutting my fringe/bangs. Sean was my new hair colourist and he had a very “no pressure” attitude. I brought in photos of the cut and colour I wanted and I think they both delivered the dramatic change I asked for. Below are some photos of the actress, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, who I happened to see in Scott Pilgrim Vs the World last weekend (awesome movie by the way!). After Googling her images (that sounds weird haha), I was inspired to try her hairstyle for myself. Let me know what you guys think!

My brand new bangs! Bang-on!

Mary Elizabeth Winstead Hairstyle Inspiration. I think Ashley and Sean did a “Bang-On” job!

My hair colour has kind of a gradient with brown on the top and higlights on the ends.

All smiles. I was told the fringe is meant to draw attention to my eyes.

  1. […] If you’ve been following my Twitter (@AboutSusanna), you’ll know that I got my hair cut about 2 weeks ago. I had about 30cm (11″) length chopped off my head!!! My good friends at Shibui – Tommy and Julie – did my hair and colour. Tommy is way fun and I just LOVE my new short hair. It’s now as long as my collar bone, which I guess you’d say is short to mid-length, but its a hell of a lot shorter than before!!! Julie was an ace colourist, did a great job with the lightening of my hair. She used some method which didn’t require me to get highlights but gave a similar affect, which saved me a whole lot of money! Julie knew what she was doing, so even though I asked to go lighter, she knew better. Anyway, after about a week, I did a little selfie photo shoot below. Lemme know if you like my new short hair! (See what I did with my hair the last time I went to Shibui here.) […]
