New haircut!

I finally got a haircut today! I hate going to the hairdresser as I never know exactly what I want so I always end up getting boring haircuts, with not much of a change from the previous one.  Not to mention that I'm never totally happy with the cut I end up getting.

Today, I had a few requests for the hairdresser:
  • add volume
  • make my hair more manageable (thinner)
  • make my face look less long
Here is the result:

        Before                                 After

She suggested to cut straight bangs, and I agreeded, as I never had straight bangs before. I'm not sure if I like it, but maybe it's because I'm not used to it.

Instead of adding layers (like I usually request), she trimmed the top part (near the crown) various lengths, to make it thinner and more voluminous.

Overall, even if I'm not sure about the bangs, I have to agree that it really makes my face look shorter, and I can feel to the touch that my hair is thinner and softer. It will be much more easy to infuse volume to it.


  1. i think the bangs suits you! you look great :)

  2. they suit you! i keep getting the urge to get a fringe (or bangs haha) cut in but i always end up growing them out!

  3. la toupette te va bien!

    c'est dure a ce qu'on veux quoi exactement. Chaque fois que je vais chez le coiffeur, je lui ai dit de couper un peu (comme 2 ou 3 cm). Il coupe le double T-T

  4. @Donna ♥ Baby: Aww thanks! Maybe I just need to get used to them?

    @Helena (XOXO Parisky) : Thank you ^^

    @Emma: Thanks! I've had the urge to get bangs many times too, but like you, I always end up growing them out but they are so annoying LOL.

    @petitechouxx: Merci!! Ahahah oui j'ai déjà vécu ça aussi! Je lui dis que je veux couper les pointes seulement, et on dirait qu'il me coupe le double! x=

  5. It's a cute look! Very katy perry-esque!

  6. omg Gaby I love the new bangs! it gives you an edgy look! i love it.

  7. i like your new bangs! and i am like you- i never know what to tell my hairdresser so i always end up with the same haircut almost everytime!

  8. Love ur new hair cut! u look soo fresh :)

  9. You look good with bangs, suits you! Love it.


  10. Oh I love the bangs! You look really nice with them!! :D

    I'm goin the opposite with my hair haha..I used to have thick bangs..now I'm just parting my hair..aaah its so strange

  11. Edgy!:D The new hair looks lovely, frames your face.:D

    ***** Marie *****

  12. So brave! I know bangs will look awful on me so I don't even consider them when I get tired of my hair.

    But I agree with others: you pull of the edgy look so easily, even with bangs! At least they aren't too short so if you don't like them still in a couple weeks you'll easily be able to grow them a bit and keep them away.

    I think you look so pretty before and after so either hairstyle is nice :)

  13. love the new do! the fringe TOTALLY suits you.
    i used to have a full fringe and i've been wondering whether i should get them again. after seeing your photos i'm DEFINITELY getting it =D

  14. I just found your blog... LOL love the profile description! Pretty much sums me up too :P
    ..and nice hair do..not everyone can pull it off!

  15. Love the new haircut, the bangs really suit you! It's great how you've got such a different look without loosing too much of the length of your hair. x

  16. @BottledBeauty: Aww thanks! I agree it looks a little like Katy Perry (=

    @EveryDay Makeup (becky): Thank you =D

    @Mimi: Thanks ^^

    @iphisphere: Thank you! That's exactly what I needed (=

    @♥Nur KissKat♥ : Thank you =D

    @l-article: Aww thanks! I don't know if I will stick to the bangs, it's so annoying! I guess I really have to get used to it z=

    @Marie: Thank you ^^

    @The Girlie Blog: Yes, I noticed that, it's cool (=

    @Crystal: Well I have never really considered them before, but I reall wanted to conceal my HUGE forehead LOL. But I'm glad they aren't too short because I'm not sure if I will keep them, they are annoying me already xD I've already started to part them LOL.

    @PetitDerriere: Aww I'm glad you decided to get a full fringe after looking at my pictures =D

    @jadore: Thank you!!

    @Alma: I'm glad you love my description (= I wanted something a little different LOL.

    @LilyLipstick: Thanks! Yes I asked to keep my length (=

  17. très jolie, tu as des yeux magnifiques, et je trouve que la frange te vas vraiment très bien;
    Je préfère maintenant qu'avant

  18. you look cute!! I think the bangs suits you and yes, you just have to get used to it. I once got straight bangs too and at first it did feel a bit weird but I grew fond of it. Eventually I got bored though, plus bangs needs constant maintaining.

  19. @agnes: Merci beaucoup!

    @Ms Bubu: Merci hihi ^^

    @Fifi: Thanks! You are right, I'm already bored! It's getting greasy so quickly and it's so annoying... I've already started parting it on the side LOL.
