I used to hate my hair when I was younger because I thought it was too big. Now, I love it. Unfortunately, it lets me done every now and then... I suppose it's what we call bad hair day!

Very nice post!

That I-D editorial is so spectacular. Then again, all of the hairstyles at Christian Lacroix were splendid, as well. Who could possibly resist big hair?

S of HighLighter said...

Great post, I want one of those hair donuts to add some old-school glamor to my summer dinner outfits with a big bun. Also that gold crust updo from the Galliano show is so fairytale-like.

would you like to exchange links? xxx S www.omnislucis@blogspot.com

MISS GLITZY said...

Woow, truly BIG hair...
I wonder if there are any "service instructions" for combing and washing ;)

HAVE A JOYUFL MONDAY!!!

Elyse said...

Yay for big hair! I never even leave the house without my teasing comb! I really like the picture on the second row from the bottom on the right. I'm not really sure what's going on in it but I really like it! Like her hair looks really cool and its like half up and half down? And I think she's wearing bunny ears?

Swell Vintage - Frankie said...

Wow, these are all so inspiring. I WISH I could do hair, I'm rubbish with it. These photos make me wish I was a better maine x

E said...

Susanna-Cole said...

Big hair, I love it! My hair is almost all the way down to my hips, so I really have a lot of hair to work with for crazy hairstyles, the sad part is my hair is just so straight it won't do much, and secondly, I so happen to suck at styling hair. :( But I totally enjoyed looking at all the crazy awesome hair styles in this post, anyway! :D

That Chelsea Girl™ said...

My favorite is the blue hair, haha! Thanks for all the rockin' styles.
