Sarah Jessica Parker’s New Hairdo. Should We Follow?

  • Pin it

Known for taking fashion chances and getting by with some style extravagancies, Sarah Jessica Parker has now premiered a new hairdo for the fashpassionate people out there.

The full 80s flavored bouffant do is most likely to do a petite’s justice rather than work on a tall figure and it doesn’t look that hard to reproduce at home. It’s your regular blow dry with a front bump (pardon my non – professional language, I’m a total broomstick when it comes to hairstyling – hence I’m a complete hair accessories addict – it makes any bad hair day go away with a bow and a smile).

Other than that, though she was wearing a mighty bold cobalt blue, the dress was plain enough to allow SJP to keep the highlight on her bouffant hairdo. (similarly hairdressed was Cheryl Cole just the other day) Is this a trends? The new hairdo is the bouffant? (because I can tell you right now, Imma fall back on that one! Not for me, nope, not!)

Its a bit too much hair for me, I deffinatly wont be copying this style anytime soon. Pluse, Im not big into hairspray and you would need a lot of product to hold that in place!

Hilarious! Back in the day only Paulina Porizkova, Brooke Shields or Kim Alexis could wear this fabulously because they were … Super models! SJP – thanks for the laughs! Priceless.

It is a interesting statement hairdo, I do not see it for everyday but mos def for the red carpet like SJP is doing. I do think that she looks great in that blue dress. : )
I won’t be doing it, tis a tad too Country and Western singer back in the good ole days for this chica. : )

There’s a saying that goes around in university… The bigger the hair, the bigger the sl*t.

Personally, I’m not fond of the big hair because it makes SJP looks like her forehead goes on forever!

MarieSali, you’re right about the hairspray! I’ll be calling this “the Hairspray hairdo”! and boy, am I not a fan of hairspray!

keiko, at least you had a good laugh ;)

Ellington I liked the blue dress too, even if I found it a bit too bland for SJP and too revealing?

Trix it’s true about the forehead – but it also adds a few extra inches for SJP – so she looks taller here. I had no idea about the “bigger the hair … ” thing. I guess it’s because it draws attention and maybe people are used to calling girls who like to draw attention on themselves (big) nasty words? Just saying…

Hmm, some weeks ago I watched a documentary about David Bailey. All models and actresses including his wife (very briefly) Catherine Deneuve and legendary model Jean Shrimpton had this sort of hairdo. So I assume they had followers too then right?

I love SJP’s dress and think the hair is fun for once. I don’t like it on Cheryl Cole. Famous name, hardly know whom she is.

Ellington, I adore the old country singers like Tammy Wynette, Loretta Lynn, Patsy Cline etc. And of course big wig headed Dolly Parton in her early days. Oh and not to forget Mrs Cash; June Carter and her family!
