Beauty Icon: Charlotte Free

Sunday, November 6, 2011


Ever since I have become enthralled with Jem and the Holograms, candy-colored hair has become more and more appealing! Many people have taken to the pastel colored bottle, and at the helm of this trend is the 20-year-old model, Charlotte Free. Already a favorite among talented designers and photographers, Charlotte has walked the runway for Topshop Unique, Jeremy Scott, and Marchesa to name but a few, and will be covering Wonderland magazine's Nov/Dec issue.

I stumbled upon her by chance whilst making the rounds on tumblr, and was stunned by her famous curtain of pink tresses, sharp cheekbones, and piercing blue eyes.

Bloggers such as Arabelle from The Fashion Pirate and Kate Gabrielle from Scathingly Brilliant also come to mind when thinking of candy-colored hair, and continue to fuel my love of pink and purple hair! What was the most original hair style you've ever had?

  4. Aaaaaahhhhh this makes me want my pink hair back so badly!!! Someday when I have a job that won't require "normal" hair. I wore a wig over it for a while but it was too much of a pain so I finally gave in... but I don't really feel like myself without the pink. :( She is so gorgeous!

  12. Aaaahhh yesss! I used to have pink hair for about a year or so but the bleaching killed my hair. I miss it so bad though! I am thinking I might dye it purple and blue some day soon because I am unwilling to bleach it again but fashion pirate has definitely also inspired me in that choice :D

  17. I LOVE CHARLOTTE! I'm always so happy to see short girls like her that get to walk the runways for top designers. She's really an inspiration to me, along with Bambi Northwood-Blyth. I love how she pushes the envelope with her pink hair. It's so rare and unusual! She's great! <3

  21. She is absolutely gorgeous! The first time I saw her was through an illustration by Danny Roberts (here: http://igorandandre.blogspot.com/2011/02/charlotte-free-charlotte-ronson.html). She pulls off pink hair so well. I totally agree that she is a modern day fashion icon.

  31. She has a gorgeous face and such classic features. While I'm not a personal fan of unnatural colored hair for everyday, I do enjoy it for costume aspects.

  38. She was my inspiration for turning my eye brows pink a while back! <3

    I guess shaving all my hair off earlier in the year was pretty crazy? haha. When I was younger my hair was almost always in a pixie cut with some red or hot pink streaks in it. I also dyed my hair atomic turquoise once but it was too difficult to maintain! :(

  39. Ahh love her !! and her hair!!! I wish I can pull it off...hehe I'm following you now and hope we can follow each other. :)

  45. Ah! Amazing, amazing, amazing. I wish I had the power to pull of such a statement hair style! I'm in the process of going back to blonde and I am tempted by the idea of putting the teeniest, palest bit of cotton candy pink into my tips, just for a couple of weeks of fun.
