The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo haircut! A DIY look.

Hey. I know I’m a little late with this one. I never claimed to be on the cutting edge of book and movie characters. I am slightly ashamed to say I haven’t yet read the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo books or seen the movies. But they are on my list and I really do intend on reading and watching.

When the movie came out, I kept hearing about Lisbeth Salanders haircut. So, what did I do? I googled. And I found these









These are some dynamic short haircuts. They have elements of texture, disconnection, undercut sides, super blunt lines, jagged edges. A bold and edgy cut for the brave lady who wants to make a statement. I  any texture. And I recommend this haircut on medium to thick hair of any texture. I would like to challenge a curly haired girl to try this look because I think it would be crazy bangin!

So, who should I practice on? My sister, Brook. She is a superstar cancer biologist in one of the worlds best labs. And how do you shake things up in a science lab? Have freaky hair. She totally pulls off the hot and freaky scientist lady look.

What I learned from cutting her hair in a The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo haircut is that blunt lines make their point a lot better on very dark hair, but it still worked.











In this little DIY video for the ‘do, Penelope Purple Martin Mojo Olive-Starr O’bersky volunteered to be my model. You think her name is bad-ass? You should meet her in person.

I have been lucky enough to have watched her grow from little kid into a killer young lady who exudes a quiet confidence and personal style. She is a junior roller derby champ who needed a edgy hairdo to go with her fierce skating skills. So, we went for it.

    I LOOOOOVE this look!! Today I tried faking a sidecut with two cornrow braids on the left side…I was worried that a sidecut wouldn’t look as cool on strawberry blonde hair, but I got a ton of compliments & felt super sexy & edgy! I only discovered your site last night, but I’m already addicted! Thanks for sharing your experience, knowledge, & awesome personality with all of us diy fashionistas!

    Sending love from Long Beach, CA!
