August’s New Hair Cut

Today I went to see my fabulous stylist Lori at Cameo Salon to get my hair trimmed. My fringe was in dire need of a trim. My hair hadn’t been touched since Premiere Orlando when Michael O’Rourke Rocked My Hair. He gave me a cut that Lori called ‘the chameleon.’ Since it was time to trim it, she had to work with the layers that had grown out. She neatened the back, made the layers match around the sides, basically removing the shattered/point cut effect. She gave me suicide bangs with a shadow box, meaning I have the short, straight across bangs with pieces of purple that can fall on top of them. It’s a really lovely effect.

 

As a reminder, here’s what my hair looked like before she trimmed it.

From my Sugarpill Eclectus Parrot Tutorial.

So this shows off my color, which as you know is Manic Panic Atomic Turquoise and Fuchsia Shock.

My Right Side.

My left side.

 

For makeup, all I have on today is:
Supergoop SPF 50 moisturizer
Laura Geller Balance-n-brighten foundation in Porcelain (only dusted on my t-zone and under the eyes
Too Faced Shadow Insurance
Urban Decay Kinky – all over eye area
Urban Decay 24/7 Junkie Liner – to line the eyes. I love this color and it NEEDS to be an eyeshadow.
Anastasia Tinted Brow Gel in Espresso
Smashbox Lash Primer
Milani Runway Lashes Mascara
Evil Shades gloss in FOAD
Urban Decay 24/7 Perversion liner – upper and lower waterline
tarte provocateur in Champagne (highlighter)

I think this shade looks amazing with my eye color.

What do you think of my new hairdo?

        • http://www.icynails.blogspot.com/ Ice Queen

          Phyrra  Thank you for the link. She has a great selection and I think that some of her streaks might be long enough. And she has clip in bangs, too. Yay! :D

          • misfitgirlie

            Ice Queen I’ve bought from her, too, and have been really happy with her stuff.

    • NoorinNJ

      What can I say that hasn’t already been said? You look fantastic! :) 

      • http://www.Phyrra.net/ Phyrra

        NoorinNJ Thank you :) I’m really happy with it!

    • misfitgirlie

      You make me want my blunt bangs back! I had them up until early this year where I just sort of grew them out due to circumstance. I can’t really afford the upkeep of them financially or time-wise right now, plus I’d always go bananas if the trim wasn’t straight. Yours look PERFECT!

      • http://www.Phyrra.net/ Phyrra

        misfitgirlie My stylist, Lori, is amazing. She even is able to account for my cowlick on the right side. Some stylists will let you come in and just trim your fringe at no charge (though I’d still always tip a few when I’ve done this) in between haircuts.

        • misfitgirlie

          Phyrra My stylist, God bless him, is a total kick in the pants and amazing with color. He does great cuts, too, but my hair isn’t too complicated in that regard. Bangs just weren’t his thing…and it irked me that he’d charge me for it, too! That Junkie liner was part of a set, right? It needs to be part of the permanent line!

          • http://www.Phyrra.net/ Phyrra

            misfitgirlie Yes, it’s part of a set and I found mine at Nordstrom Rack, though they’ve been on Hautelook.

      love the cut!

      • http://www.Phyrra.net/ Phyrra

        cinseven13 Thanks Cin!

    • SilkeSquirrel

      It looks great! I liked the previous cut a lot too, but a change is always fun :) I see i’m not the only one, but this really makes me want a blunt fringe again!

      • http://www.Phyrra.net/ Phyrra

        SilkeSquirrel They can be so much fun, but definitely more upkeep than a shattered or asymmetrical one.

    • brightlycoloreddaena

      Oh it looks great!  I love the blunt bangs!

    • brightlycoloreddaena

      Oh it looks great!  I love the blunt fringe!

        brightlycoloreddaena Thank you :) I always enjoy that!

    • mamavalveeta03

      You are SO daring! (and young…when I was your age, I was probably more daring…nah, not really!). Have you ever been blond? And one other question: How often do you change your haircut and color? Doesn’t it take a toll on the condition?

      • http://www.Phyrra.net/ Phyrra

        mamavalveeta03 Yes, I have been blonde :) Also, I created a guide on how I care for my colored hair :)http://www.phyrra.net/2012/04/how-to-care-for-colored-hair.htmlThe biggest thing is doing hair masques, like Redken Cat. But my hair is in really good shape these days :)

    • LillianFunnyFace

      You look beautiful :)

        LillianFunnyFace Thanks Lillian :) I love my short fringe.
