Already Prettypoll: Style Icons

Here’s a topic we haven’t tackled in a while: Who is your style icon, and why? If you don’t have one, I’d love to hear why, too!

Especially since I went for many years without one myself. I never really saw anyone whose style choices resonated with me to the point that I wanted to emulate them. Now, however, I’ve got three celebs – Halle Berry, Kate Beckinsale, and Kate Lanphear – and two bloggers – Alicia Hannah Naomi (who doesn’t post outfits much anymore, but when she does they look like this) and Margot Meanie – who inspire the living daylights outta me. read more

Or maybe your infant insists on yanking any available strands, so cascading waves are off the table for the time being.

But let’s say you could do anything at all to your hair today, and have it go back to its current state tomorrow. What would you do? Chop it off? Color it wildly? Trade short hair for long? Go natural? Share your hair fantasies. read more
