Charity Blog Challenge - Not A Hair Out Of Place

One of my gorgeous blogging sisters Hannah from Fabulousy Fat Fashion has decided to do something very courageous and brave and shave off all of her hair for Charity. In order to help raise awareness to a cause very dear to her heart she has asked some of the bloggers out there to write a little something about their favourite hair accessory or style and I of course wanted to help out and join in on the action. 

Here's what she had to say about shaving off her hair and her inspiration behind doing it:

"I have decided that I want to shave my hair off for charity because honestly, I'm not fit enough to run a marathon, I'm too chicken to do a boxing day dip and I'm too lazy to do a sponsored clean!
I currently work for Cleveland College Of Art & Design as Students' Union President and we have been working with the lovely people over at Hartlepool Families First since September on bits and pieces, but now I want to do something really big and really help an amazing charity out who do so much for the local community. I wish I could explain to you all the amazing work that HFF do, but honestly they do so much I'd be writing forever! However here are a few of the amazing things they do. 
They empower the deaf community by putting on health related and social activities. They offer a health bus service to monitor peoples lives and help them to not develop long term conditions. They have a special needs home support scheme to support parents/carers and even offer specialist and stimulating toys and play equipment. They offer one to one support for young adults and children with behavioral issues and additional needs such as autism. There are so many other amazing things that they do, but I would be listing them all day!
So with that in mind, I'm going to cut off my precious hair! Those who know me know how vain I am (not a day goes by without a selfie) and so this is going to be a huge step for me, which is why I'm asking for your support to raise as much money as I possibly can for such a brilliant charity! To donate, visit http://www.justgiving.com/hannahboal or text HCUT88 £ (then any amount from 1-10) to 70070!

Thank you,"

When it comes to our look and personal style one element in our look that many of us tend to take for granted is our hair. I personally don't put as much effort into the way I style my hair as some of my friends do and sometimes I find a solution to this problem is to just wear a hat.

It's no secret that I am a huge Michael Jackson fan and one of the accessories he uses a lot to complete his look is a fedora hat. I absolutely love this look and I too have implemented the traditional head piece into my wardrobe.

These pictures were taken a few years ago now when I was just 21 years old. I decided to put my own stance on his signature look from the video Smooth Criminal. 

The thing I love about this piece is that it really lends itself to many different trends and it can be sophisticated, sexy, stylish and chic all at the same time.  I really should dust this hat off and wear it again sometime soon.

Keep you eye on Hannah's blog to see how she's getting on.
