The Long and Short of It

There has been a lot of change in the celebrity “hair world” recently. Who could have missed Emma Watson’s dramatic change to a short crop?! She was almost unrecognisable. Whether you like it or not, it has generated considerable discussion, with her name top of Twitter Trending.

Also, today Cheryl Tweedy has been papped out in LA with new extensions. Much controversy surrounded her previous extensions last year after she claimed on a L’Oreal advert that her hair “feels stronger, full of life, replenished, with a healthy shine. It’s got its mojo back”. Harsh criticism came due to her obvious use of extensions which gave her this “mojo” rather than any shampoo, and she swiftly got rid of them. Her natural, shorter hair was still as big, prompting the new term Bidi (Big Midi) and she looked gorgeous.

 It seems as though a change in hairstyle can generate as much of a buzz as these celebrities actual talents! Everybody gets bored, but I suppose these women have the cash to be able to change from long to short and back to long again on a whim.

I don’t know why but I seem to think longer hair is somehow more feminine and girly. I would be terrified if a hairdresser came at me ready to give me a ‘Watson’, yet I would also be scared of ruining my hair with extensions.

It seems us women like to mark an end or change with a change in hairstyle. Emma is no longer tied to her Harry Potter contract, and Cheryl is now almost fully recovered from her malaria and idiotic ex-husband. So many more have changed their hair after a relationship break-up. It certainly keeps things interesting! And as the old saying goes…A change is as good as a rest!
