Someday I will have to open a The Sartorialist just for hairstyles.  I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, a great unique hairstyle/cut is one of the best things a cash-strapped young lady or gentlemen can invest in.


You get to wear it everyday, you can wear it in several different ways, and you can accessorize in a million different ways.

    I think this is a great idea! I have frequently perused your site for hairstyle ideas that are fresh and modern.

      It’s true! I’ve printed up photos from The Sartorialist to take to my beautician.

    This is perfect timing! I was just feeling a little insecure about sticking out with my short hair so it’s lovely to see this)) I agree, this girl looks marvelous.

    Beautiful photo of a beautiful woman. The cut, the coat, the colors, her calm…

    I agree, and I want this haircut. I am old enough to be her mother. I wonder if it will make me look like Judie Dench. How do I get THIS haircut in my town?

    Ahmen to that! And me spend just as much on our hair so why not shoe it off.

    I agree this hairstyle is gorgeous. But as for being the best accessory for a cash-strapped person…I don’t know. When my hair was short and chic it cost a fortune to maintain. PLEASE open a Sartorialist for hairstyles!

    everything is great…..her hair is personal…not a severe cut.. her face … her style… the photo…timeless style…. Bravo

    you are right! her hair is gorgeous!

  13. Elena

    I agree, her hairstyle is amazing and what I like most is that she knows that she is beautiful!

    I’m not a big fan of short hair but i like the way she pairs her scarf with that jacket.

    Throw away the cigarette and it would be perfect!

    Fabulous style for her face and bone structure… absolutely perfect.

    What I like about this haircut is that it was clearly done to suit the hair texture, the face shape and the lifestyle of the ‘wearer’ – not to mimic some notion of what’s ‘fashionable’ in terms of hair style. Hence it is beautiful.

    It is rare to see a haircut that doesn’t scream “short”~ it is simply a breakthrough style which just happens to expose the ears!

    I love the scarf!!!

    Great cut. She really reminds me of Dianne Wiest, around the eyes and mouth.

    I love cute, short hair on girls (and on me!) – it always feels a bit special even if you don’t do much with it.

    I do find it funny though when girls who always wear their hair in a ponytail tell me that they could never cut their hair because it isn’t versatile!

    I couldn’t agree with you more. This hairstyle / cut is fabulous. She has the perfect hair for it. I constantly change up my hairstyle & color and find that I love short the best. It is the best accessory next to a smile on the face.

    Yes! So true, Scott. And also kepping things clean and pressed and heels, buttons and hems in check. After that invest in shoes, handbag and perfume. A true lady.

    Hair should compliment the face and lifestyle of the wearer. It is delusional to think “you” will look better with some hairstyle just because it is fashionable at the moment. Do you want people to compliment your hair or YOU?

  50. Marisa Alma McGinnis

    January 30, 2013 at 12:01 pm

    I don’t like short hair as it is too severe looking, but on her it looks very feminine. She also has the perfect face for short hair.

    Cutting my hair has been (one of) the BEST decisions I ever did as a woman. I chose a cut that is very easy to maintain – I cut it myself with a combination of clippers for the back and scissors for the front. Without fail, I get a compliment almost everyday – regardless of what I’m wearing. It creates a look that is always “striking” and stands out, even if I’m wearing a simple white button down and jeans. I so wish woman would try cutting their hair short at least ONCE in their lifetimes. I have never felt more sexy in my life than right now with my short hair.

      To me has been the same… Cutting my hair has been one of the best decisions I’ve ever taken. Completely agree with you

    January 30, 2013 at 4:14 pm

    one of the things we love about you… you cover high fashion but never forget the “cash-strapped”! such an inspiring aspect of the way you work.

    This style is perfect…If only my hair was curly…

    So true. Hair, eyes, and face are three elements of your life as a designer that will never disappear.

    January 30, 2013 at 7:42 pm

    Start it NOW, PLEASE! This is an emergency. Since leaving Los Angeles & Amsterdam for ‘smaller’ cities I’ve seen women with long split ends or poor cuts and unfortunate color jobs. I’ve also seen young men with healthy hair wasting financial resources on unnecessary hair products used in abundance.
    I stated recently that one state is filled with hair ‘dressers’ who must have graduated at the bottom half of their respective classes in beauty school. Further, I don’t think that they like women. Women so often have beautiful hair, as do men!
    And I never did — so they should glory in it!
    Again, please start Sartorialist hair SOON, and hopefully focus on natural looking hair.

    I agree! Throughout this whole messy recession, my only indulgence has continued to be my expensive haircut; the rest is rags from my pre-recession glory days.

    Super agree about an unique haircut being all you need (i think anyway). Hair is the best accessory and so apt for lazy girls like me.

  62. Stephanie

    January 31, 2013 at 9:44 pm

    I love this look! I absolutely love short hair on women though (draws the attention to different features of the face, depending on how it is layered) and am a big fan of natural (am in my 40s and am starting to get some greys, but won’t colour my hair). I really believe that being creative and unique in the hair department, cut-wise, is all that a woman needs to look beautiful (without makeup, hair colour, hair products, excessive styling, etc.). It also makes general sense from health, economic and environmental perspectives not to slather on the chemicals. Love this! Open a hair blog, please!

    Good plan. I have been encouraging you for ages to find good haircuts. NOT that awful Rapunzel hair that won’t go away.

  64. Sara

    February 2, 2013 at 1:47 pm

    yes please show ‘great’ haircuts..styles… nonchalant especially, lived-in, integrated, good looking for the whole person: not what we may think of as ‘good hair.’ What ever that is!! most of us are not perfect, but are perfectly interesting, and lucky if we are just in our bodies, going about a good day.
