middle partings.

Wednesday 10 August 2011

My hair has never been a fan of change. Difference in humidity, weather or even products can cause a major hair fail, and it is safe to say my hair is a little stuck in its ways. So when it comes to partings, its difficult to shift my regular side part in any other direction without causing a mass of messy, confused locks on top of my head!

*cue creepy picture of me attempting to show my parting...*

When I decided it was time for a change, its fair to say my hair wasn't exactly willing, but after a bit of a struggle, involving a hairdryer and a large quantity of hair spray, I am actually rather pleased with my 'middle-part style'. Having a rather long, thin face means generally I look like a complete idiot with a middle parting, but I find that I can just about pull it off using waves and texture in my hair, as long as there is a mountain of volume at the roots!

A while ago I mentioned I was thinking about ombre-ing my hair and jumping on the typical blogger hair band wagon, and I am still umm-ing and ahh-ing over having lovely blonde ends! I very nearly picked up a highlighting kit the other day, but chickened out... wimp. My main concern is my ends getting all dry and horrible and having to chop them all off, arghh! 

I'm sorry this post is so trivial and meaningless when there are much bigger matters going on in the UK.

My thoughts and prayers go out to all those affected by the riots over the past few days, keep safe and happy!


  1. Your hair looks lovely like this, really suits you :) xx

  2. Love you eye makeup! its gorgeous... hair looks lovely too :) xx

  3. you look gorgeous:) wish I could pul off middle parting this well. Also, I ombred my hair a while ago and it didn´t really cause any damage to my ends. i think that as long as you make sure you condition your hair, it´s going to be fine:) x

  4. This really suits you!!! I always try middle parting in the house and then change it back to side before leaving. Always feel stupid but I love it on other people!!

  5. My gosh Hannah your look gorgeousss! Love your hair like that and it has a beautiful colour! Glad to see your post again!!xx

  6. so jealous, I just can't pull a middle parting off :)

  19. I like your hair like this. Its very pretty and natural looking.
    I have a long face too so I know what you mean about it looking weird sometimes with a middle part. I havent worn a middle part since the 8th grade. lol

  20. I absolutely love your hair like this! I have quite a long face as well so i feel like i look really strange with a middle parting... but you can really pull it off! :) Your hair color is really lovely as well, i think you might regret ombre-ing it tbh! xo
