When I saw Ben Cooke, the loveliest and most talented celebrity hair stylist last week we were talking how fab we thought Nicola Roberts from Girls Aloud (something kinda ooh) hair was looking. I love the volume, colour and curls of her hair. I think she is finally really happy being in her own skin, having ditched the crack like fake tan habit she had and embraced her porcelain look. When you feel good on the inside it really does shine through to the outside. Nicola’s hair, which is larger than life is quite cartoon like and I think she is not the only one rocking this cartoon hair. Kelly Osbourne looks like Pebbles from the Flintstones with her platinum white hair in this photo and she has only gone and made herself look more cartoon like with her blue/purple rinse- love it! As for Lady Gaga what can I say – I do think the highlighter yellow really does suit her!
All this cartoon hair does feel very futuristic and like the 21st century as imagined by someone in 1952. I really like this surreal cartoon hair and it may have come about as the whole world has gone loopy with the credit crunch melt down. People are also rethinking how to structure their work and lives with better maternity leaves, working from home and flexible hours. Lots of people have clicked that slugging your guts out for the system will not get you a pat on the back after 35 years of hard graft but often leads to a big fat custard pie in your face. When I see cartoon hair I think of doing your own thing, being creative and saying screw it. Bring it on! I’m off to dye my hair Superman blue/black.
