I am a hair chameleon. In the last 5 years I’ve had shoulder length hair, asymmetrical hair, blonde hair, half shaved hair, wispy layered hair, hair half way down my back and now, the Rihanna bob – my personal favourite.
But then again, I guess all of my different hair styles have been my favourite at one point or another. (However I’ll never again do the half shaved look – what a pain to grow back, ugh.)
On my last visit to New York City I got it in my mind that I was sick to death of my current haircut and I just had to chop it off. It was a bit of a compulsive decision – like many decisions in my life – but I knew I had to do it.
Upon coming back to Toronto I started thinking about going just a little bit shorter, more blunt, above the shoulders and inspired by what is now commonly known as The Rihanna Bob. I had a similar haircut when I was eight but I think back then it was known as The Posh Spice Bob.
I teamed up with hair connoisseur Anna Giannini to get the perfect Rihanna bob at the salon where she works, Mosaic Hair Group in Forest Hill. Anna has been working (and teaching) with hair for over a decade and I can definitely vouch for the fact that she knows exactly what she’s doing. Hands down, the best haircut ever.
