Short Hair Sunday: First Look at Short Hair Series with Matt Vee

short-hair-sunday-sarah-ward-by-matt-vee-photography

Earlier this summer my photographer friend Matt Villanueva asked me, “How many ways do you think you could style your hair?” We decided to take this as a challenge and this series was born. Here’s a sneak peek at Look #1: Forward.

We had such a remarkable team involved in the project! Matt is actually a featured RAW Artist as well for an upcoming exhibition on October 15, 2015. Go buy a ticket and support local artists!

Can’t wait to show you the rest!!!

Short Hair Sunday – Jenna Yankun

In an effort to connect the short hair sisters of the world, each week for Short Hair Sunday, we’re going to feature a woman who is embracing her fierceness and femininity with short hair. This week is artistic director and stylist Jenna Yankun, hailing from New York City!

Having short hair makes me feel:
Powerful! and Sexy!

What made you decide to cut your hair?
I got to a point where I felt really strong and powerful within myself and felt I needed to reflect that on the outside. I’ve always felt like cutting my hair off would be freeing and really show people my true self. Plus all the hot ladies in my family have short hair and have been rocking it for decades!

My favorite hair product is:
Lotion, wax, sweat – or anything that makes it a little dirty when it’s not – no ‘fros please!

If you could give one piece of advice to women considering short hair, what would it be?
Absolutely just do it! It’s just hair – it grows back! And you would be surprised at the way people respond differently to you. I’ve done this a few times and the last time I did it because I wanted to move up in my career and to be taken seriously – I literally got approached by my manager to become a supervisor the NEXT DAY! Crazy right? It shows a certain type of courage to be a lady with short hair!

Short Hair Sisters: Short Hair Inspiration From Real Women

Every time you go for a haircut, chances are you take a photo to your stylist for inspiration. Over the years I have taken photos of celebrities to my stylist, as I’m sure you have, too — women like Victoria Beckham, Anne Hathaway, Ginnifer Goodwin. But wouldn’t it be wonderful to derive inspiration from real women with short hair, women without professional stylists on hand off-camera, coiffing their hair to make it perfect for the paparazzi? So today I bring you short hair inspiration from real women.
