My New Haircut – The Razor Chop

IMG_8813

IMG_8814

My hair was long overdue a decent chop. You know one of those ‘wow – you’ve really had your hair cut’ ones instead of a trim that I have to flick around in Mark’s face for about 10 minutes before he realises that I’ve been to the hairdressers that day. So chop I did – well, Jordan at Hershesons on Conduit Street did – and I could not be happier with the results. Shoulder-skimming, textured lock goodness that requires little, if any at all, styling. Just what I asked for. Excuse the bizarre pouty photo, it was the best of a very bad bunch.

It’s probably the shortest I’ve had it since my early teenage years when my Mum used to silently action the hairdresser to cut it shorter than I’d requested to ekeΒ out the length of time till we’d have to see them next. To give it that lived-in look that didn’t appear too perfect Jordan razor cut the whole thing – not a pair of scissors in sight. Using just a razor and an extreme eye for detail, Jordan went round skilfully hacking off the length leaving behind a softer edge that meant that things wouldn’t get too ‘triangle-y’ when I blow-dried it and instead sat in a bed head-ish way. ‘The less you style it, the better’, were his words so all I’ve been doing is snubbing conditioner come hair wash time, adding in a few spritzes of the Oribe Maximista Thickening Spray when it’s damp and blow-drying it in the most ‘I don’t care’ fashion I can. If I need to neaten things up I do stick a few waves in with my GHD’s but it’s nothing too precise.

A truly wash-and-go haircut? I’m one happy chappy indeed.

    Love this length on you Anna. It really suits you! x

  • Bella

    Soooo beautiful! You have perfect shiny hair (envious here :D). I tried this length earlier this year and it didn’t have the same gorgeous effect :/
    LOVE IT ON YOU! πŸ™‚

  • You look gorgeous! I chopped off 30 cm earlier this year and have been loving my short hair (well now it’s more like medium), it’s much easier to get ready, specially for those of us who have zero hair skills πŸ™‚ Love this on you X

  • Bella

    Absolutely gorgeous! It’s edgy, cool and frames your pretty face perfectly! I can’t believe how far you’ve come, LOL, when I first found your blog your hair must have been past your waist. You’re lucky it grows that thick, fast and healthy :).

  • This haircut suits you perfectly! I am in love with how your hair looks like now.

  • It looks stunning and I love that it’s a little more dimensional that a typical blunt cut but still had the same effect! I love getting these shorter, sharper styles so I’ll definitely be looking into whether my salon does the razor-trick.

  • I like the haircut and it suits you, but I LOVED you with your long hair in your older videos. I don’t like the trend at the moment, that everybody cuts their hair on shoulder length, tried it once and it didn’t suit me at all :/

  • I love your new haircut! It looks amazing and really suits you x

  • Lucy Birchall

    You’re hair is looking gorgeous Anna. I love the texture of the cut, it looks so flattering and suits you so well. Wish I could do such a chop yet the shorter my hair, the ‘pouffier’ and curlier and, well, damn unmanageable it gets!

    I love this haircut! I recently got back into wanting my hair to be cut at all as my folks used to cut my hair if I got a C or lower on a test or assignment back in grade school. There was one time where my dad cut my hair so short, I had a legitimate bowl cut and looked like a boy. Quite sad, but thankfully I have control of my hair now!

  • You look beautiful Anna! The length suits your face and I love how the layers fall so perfectly. I had a short chop when I was 19 but was sort of scarred by it and haven’t done it since. It’s taken me a while to get my length back… but now you’re tempting me to chop it all off again! Ay carumba, what’s a girl to do?! Btw I really like the top picture, you look stunning πŸ™‚
