The New Summer Chop!

It seems that everyone from Cheryl Cole to Jordan Dunn are getting their hair cut in the new ‘must have’ summer hair cut!

So much so that it’s quickly becoming the new ‘Rachel’ we saw back in the Friends heyday and not wanting to be too inventive, the word on the street is that this new cut is called the ‘Sienna’, named after Sienna Miller who was apparently the first to start the trend

So far, some of the celebrities who have fallen for this trend have included Cheryl Cole,  Emma Stone, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Jordan Dun, Byonce, Marion Cotillard, Kate Bosworth, Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Lawrence, Scarlet Johannsen, Kara Tointon, Alexa Chung, Rosamund Pike & Zooey Deschanel to name only a few.

Having recently had my hair trimmed at my hairdressers in central London, I was told by the owner that a number of  high profile models he cuts have also asked to have this new style. Mostly making a drastic change to their previously long haired look so they can book more modelling jobs! A daunting task for any hairdresser based on the fact the average model can earn between £1,000 to £20,000 per day on their look alone! So if models are starting to do it, then it’s only a matter of time before we do it right?

There is no denying this new look is fresh, sexy, modern and perfect for the celebrities high cheekbones and long necks. But can everyone pull it off?
I must admit, I have been tempted to cut my hair into this style, but based on the fact I’ve had short hair before which was so incredibly high maintenance I swore never to cut it again & that fact that it made me look much older, I’m happy to buck this trend for now.

However, if you are looking to follow suit, then here are a few points to look for:
1) Add highlights so the cut isn’t too ‘Pulp Fiction’ harsh around your face
2) Make sure the cut is textured/choppy underneath so it gives a more carefree modern look
3) Keep the front long & don’t have a fringe.

Ultimately though if you have a naturally round face, then regardless of what the ‘trend’ is my advice would be to stay clear. Because in the same way you chose clothing to flatter your body, having short hair on a round face will just enpahsise your fullness!
