Make the chop

So if you didn’t already know, Olivia Palermo rocked up half way through New York Fashion Week sporting a new shorter ‘do. Sure she’s naturally beautiful, has impeccable style, amazing bone structure and a wardrobe I’d die for but I am Team Whitney all the way. But, back to the hair. Her cut isn’t as drastic as some others I’ve seen, mainly because she has retained her curls and has enriched her hair with chocolate brown tones. Well done Olivia, you’ve earned a few more points in my books!
Tips for getting the crop:
Tip 1: Try out a short wig to see what you would look like with short hair before you make a drastic decision. Try different coloured wigs as well because your short crop may look better with blonde highlights instead of brown tones, just a thought!
Tip 2: When deciding on the right cut, your new short do’ needs to be manageable and should look great when natural before styles. Therefore, you need to decide upon a layered hair-cut, shag or bob. I suggest Nicole Richie’s hair cut, she has a side fringe that she can move around into different styles and it’s not quite a bob. Rather it’s a modern slant on it. Genius!
Tip 3: If you’ve decided to go through with it, find a great hairdresser that you trust and is continuously up to date with trends. This is very important because a short hair do’ can take you back to the ‘90s and let’s face it; it wasn’t a good era for most. Consult your hairdresser and listen to their advice, believe it or not it is their job.
Tip 4: If you have gone through with the big snip, make sure you maintain your new gorgeous hair. After all, you’ve just cut off all those dry ends, so now is the perfect opportunity to care for your hair.
