Fashions come and go, sparkle and fade, and so do hairstyles – the above ‘do is no exception. After recently cycling through magazine tears from my college days, I happened upon this picture-perfect example of pastel-layered locks from the September 2004 issue of W. Seven years later, this spread – hair and styling – remains timeless to me.
Do you have a magazine tear that you’ve held on to? What does it depict and when was it from?
They are in no way fashion related, but I once found an old record store that sold old Rolling Stone, Life, Time, and other various magazines for a dollar. I picked up a bunch. My prize picks are a Life magazine with the first interview with Paul McCartney and a copy of the newspaper from the day they announce Lennon’s funeral services. 🙂
My Paw Paw also saved tons of National Geographics from the early 1950s and 1960s, I got those after he passed away. My friends and I love looking over them and pulling fashion tips from the advertisements.

I absolutely love these photos! Great save, Julie!
One of my favorite tears is not really related to fashion, either, and it’s very random, but I have a Nike ad from around 2004-2005 that shows Venus Williams’ silhouette – super muscular and strong. I pull it out occasionally when I need a little reminder about what ‘beauty’ means to me. 🙂
i’ve always wanted to dye my hair! but im a ginger, so i don’t think the pastels would go as well!
I wish I could do that with my hair. It is so daring – but she still looks feminine. I have magazine cut-outs of vintage-inspired bikinis I wish I could afford to get.
The hair reminds me of a more recent article on another blog where colored powder (eyeshadow!) can be used to achieve this look for a day! I haven’t tried it yet but thanks for reminding that I should so soon! 🙂
I have that exact magazine cutout from the 2004 W shoot taped to the back of my bedroom door at my parents house! It always inspired me to mix classy style with alternative style. This is still my style today!

*Sigh* The model with the pink hair looks so pretty. Two summers ago, my hair was fire engine red and black, artfully done by my brilliant hairstylist. I miss the look, but the upkeep was expensive, so I had to give it up.
I have an entire binder full of mag tears. Most of them are from Teen Vogue. My favorite is a vintage-inspired spread photographed by Arthur Elgort. Also, I died a section of my hair blue freshman year of high school!
