Diamond’s Transformation

August 26, 2016

All my life I love Agatha Christie’s detective stories. One of the main reasons is the way how crime is usually committed in her novels. It typically happens in disguise. The murderer, often young, innocent looking lady, appears at a saloon event, with the different dress, hair, makeup and behaviour, pretending to be someone else. The rest of the story is a bit bloody of course, but the part of almost perfect transformation keeps fascinating me.

I believe there is more than one person in each of us. Styling is something that helps to let shine one part of our personality today and the other one tomorrow, according to the actual state of mind and mood. Changing the look is just same refreshing like changing the apartment, city or the occupation from time to time, isn’t it?

New Hair

No matter how I love trying new things,  I used to be quite conservative, when it came to my dark and naturally curly hair. I tried to straighten my hair few times before, but I didn’t like the result that much, so I skipped that for good. Only when I recently got the opportunity to cooperate with the Irresistible me, I decided to experiment with my hairstyle a bit more. I chose to try professional flat iron  and I have to say, I couldn’t be happier with the result.  At my past tries, flat irons made my hair a bit frizzy and it felt like my hair was burning. Unlike this one.

As I believe some kind of waves and volume complement my face best, I created hairstyles that could keep the natural volume of my hair. Each of my transformations, from natural look to the vintage curls and then to big waves, didn’t take more than few minutes, with the Diamond hair styler. My hair was left soft and sleek. For vintage curls I found an inspiration on Youtube and I curled only the top layer of my hair. In each of these easily created styles, I feel so much different, still one hundred percent me!

Free spirit is what describes her the best. More than anything else, she loves to discover new places. The more distant, the better. And that works with her mind too, constantly running somewhere between the earth and the universe, causing her small troubles in ordinary life situations. She loves to spend time on the beach, riding horse and talk to random people. Her style is effortlessly feminine emphasizing statement pieces. Fresh wind in her hair is just one of her accessories.

Waking up late in the morning and staying up till the night is the only certainty in her life. Anything else keeps being highly flexible. She finds inspiration in the era of Art Deco and feels best in the company of other creative minds, that can appreciate humor spiced with sarcasm. She feels she belongs to Paris or to Cote d’Azur. You can run into her in galleries, cinema or in the theatre. It’s all part of her own creative process. Little bit of luxury won’t offend her for sure. Beautiful matters, she would tell you._MG_5836


She is introverted and analytical. Once her vision is clear, nothing else than excellence satisfy her. Purposefully, step by step by step, she brings her ideas to life. During this process, she doesn’t like any distractions. When trying to concentrate, silly jokes or gossiping apparently annoy her. The design she chooses is always very clean and refined. Her home is minimal same like her personal style, but all the pieces are chosen carefully after tedious research.
