short & sweet

chantal goya

audrey hepburn
anna karina
grace kelly

nara leao

Getting inspiration from these lovely ladies, as I'm missing my long hair. I have to remind myself of how insanely thick my hair is and how hot I would be had I not cut it.
Who do you think wears it best? Audrey looks beautiful no matter what, especially with short hair, but I've always loved Chantal Goya's cut.

Hello Ashley, I really enjoy your blog it's so beautiful. I found you through Nadinoo...alas I wanted to drop by to say the shorter 'do' is so lovely. I have done exactly the same as you and although it takes some time to adjust it's so refreshing. I also love Alexa Chung's hair and Sofia Coppola.
Enjoy !
Best wishes, Olivia

I have the same problem, I miss my long hair too but know I was really unhappy when it was long. They're all gorgeous women and your short hair really suits you, long hair is quite boring anyway!

It can be hard having short hair sometimes - I've had very long hair most of my life, but many short haircuts too.
But at the end of the day it's too hot and I only have it in a ponytail most of the time, which gives me a headache.
Have you tried curling it for a change :)

oh i always love anna the best. she's like french audrey and sometimes a little more sassy. i love the bangs... i used to always do them but i really can't pull them off with my curly locks.

I love your hair short! I know how you feel though when you miss long hair so much. Anna Karina looks the most gorgeous with the short hair, but then again..don't they all? :D

I've been looking for hair inspiration, so thanks for sharing! (My hair has always been REALLY short, so I'm trying to grow it out to my shoulders.)

I agree with you about Chantal, she's lovely. <3

Audrey is definitely the best! But I also like Anna Karina's hair

My hair is pretty long right now and I'm very tempted to try one of those haircuts (once again). And after seeing your post, I'm even more tempted =))

Beth said...

Don't worry a bit because your hair is adorable! And it doesn't look like you're trying too hard. I think I love the Grace Kelly photos best. She just always looks so feminine.

Casie Jean said...

I love them all, and its making me wish I cute mine even shorter xxx

Lyndall said...

They are all lovely!

I think Anna Karenia is so pretty. I'll have to watch some of her films one day! She's reminds me of a brunette Brigitte Bardot :)

cara said...

i'm going to put my vote in for nara leao. i'm about to make the cut myself, thanks for the lovely pictures!

Anna Karina. Her second look is quite amazing. I took a peak at some of your pictures below. (They are inspiring.) I think you could definitely pull off such a look. Would love to see the "do" you decide on.

Your blog is famous!!

Sara said...

I always regret cutting my hair, but always look at pictures of it shorter and love it.
It looks ten thousand kinds of awesome on you though!

Junaluska said...

I'm rather attached to my long hair, but I love sort haircuts on other people. All of these are so beautiful.
