Pink or Pastel hair ? This is my story

Pink or Pastel hair ? This is my story

I did a post a few weeks back about how I wanted to drastically change my hair. I have always either colored my hair blonde or, like for the past few years, just let the blonde grow out and had it sort of an ombre color. Fríða and Sóley from Reaglo ehf, were kind enough to agree to do some experiments on my hair , since  I had NO idea where to begin. Both girls are professional colorists so I felt really comfortable in their hands. Unfortunately I forgot to take a before picture but they bleached my hair and then colored it full pink.                           I went again a few days later. Sonar Reykjavík ( music festival ) was approaching and now I had blood on my tongue. This time we decided to go more pastel and I remembered to take step. 1 and step 2 pictures.                                                   I am over the moon with the end result. It took me a couple of days to get used to looking at myself in the mirror and for the first days I felt like people were staring at my whenever I was out ( they probably were). I recommend trying something different. The girls from Regalo also gave me this shampoo from Maria Nila, that I highly recommend. It has been a few weeks now but the color still keeps really well. Thank you so much Fríða and Sóley!!! The girls are always up to some crazy shenanigans and so if you want to follow the latest hair-trends, make sure to follow them on: Snapchat:…


Current la la Obsession

Current la la Obsession

  I have been absolutely obsessed by Jains album “Zanaka”. There is literally not one song that I don’t like on this album. Jain or Jeanne Galice is only twenty four years old but I feel like her sound is something that has been developed for many years ( maybe it has 🙂 ).   I have her album on repeat these days !!   For more info: http://www.jain-music.com/en/


Marino King Fashion Shoot

Marino King Fashion Shoot

I got an email from Marino a while back now, and I have been meaning to post his photos on here.  I was intrigued as I just got sent these photos of a cool young kid, with no text or nothing, just the photos. As we emailed a bit back and forth I got the sense that he was one cool cat. I promised to post his photos on here and now finally the time has come. I for one will keep an eye out for future works of Marino King.   Instagram : @marinokristjans Photo cred: Þorsteinn Jónsson


Fabulous Fabularum of Helga Thoroddsen

Fabulous Fabularum of Helga Thoroddsen

I am very excited for a new exhibition opening this Saturday. Helga Thoroddsen will be doing  her first solo show at only twenty three years old. We got Lina Batov curator at Listastofan,  to tell us a bit about Helga and her exhibition Fabularum and interview Helga before her big show.   Helga chose a resonant Latin name, which derives from fabula – tale, story, play – fitting for the exhibition theme. Not surprising, it is also a feminine word, that sums up this show perfectly. Almost all of the paintings of the Fabularum exhibition are inhabited by female figures, coming from myths and legends, mostly from Icelandic folklore. As well as some pop personalities, such as Madonna, Lady Gaga and our favorite – Björk, raised to the status of divinity, depicting our modern culture in the fabric of the mythological. Her subjects make strong reference to the religious and mythical, never glorifying it, but as a statement of how religion overtook art for centuries. You may happen to recognize the artist in some of the paintings, appearing in the features of her heroines, melting into her characters. At the same extent she is painting just women, there is reverence and beauty in each of them. Helga’s paintings have something staggeringly real, at the same time they are strongly marked by symbolism, and this contrast is striking and appealing. Additionally a most pleasant thing about her paintings remains a great sense of humor. There is no pretense in her art, but a skilfully crafted sense of joy emanating from her work. It is clear that she loves people and she loves the paint brush which is wielded with skill and intelligence. Soft smiled twenty-three year old Helga comes from Selfoss and likes to think she shares her birthplace with Björk. Freshly graduated…
