I’ll never forget the summer of 1999 when I chopped 10 inches off my long locks after watching Rene Russo in The Thomas Crown Affair. You can only imagine the look I got from the stylist after asking him to replicate such a sophisticated hairstyle – after all, I was only 19! It was probably my most dramatic hair moment to date, second to the time I got a perm (more on that later). Nowadays I hardly let my hair grow past my shoulders, fluctuating between a short and long bob. I love how fresh and transformative short styles can be. What do you think . . . would you brave the bob?
