Friday Face Off: Hair

Friday Face Off is a weekly meme created by Books by Proxy, and run by Lynn’s Book Blog. You can check out all my past Friday Face Offs here.

“Your hair is winter fire, January embers.”

This weeks theme:  A cover featuring hair

My Choice:  City of Ashes

Just look at that red hair!!!

Least Favorites:

Can we just talk about the cover on the left for a sec? Why is she naked?!?! And What is going on with her hair?!?! Also I get that it is a similar layout to the original cover with the girl above the skyline, but that pose just doesn’t look right with the layout? Its awful!


Unlike last week where I didn’t like any of the covers, I really like a bunch of them this week!

Top 3:



I like this one best because it still has the feel of the original cover but I like this girl better.  She looks like a total bad ass and I love the subtle wings in the background.

Which is your favorite? Do you agree with my choice? Let me know in the comments!!

  1. Wow! Yep – I think this week’s theme is one of my favourites as everyone went with something totally different:)). And you chose a fabulous book for covers! I completely agree with your least favourite – I was already mentally ranting about her lack of clothing when I first saw it. And while I really like your final three – the one I’d already lost my heart to was Arena 2008. I LOVE the deep red stonework with the views of the city falling apart, although there isn’t a girl with fabulous hair in sight:)

  2. What a hoot. As I scrolled through I was having a tough time as only a couple of these covers really jumped out at me, but the two with the red heads in your final choice were the ones. I totally agree with your choice for the same reasons. It is always tough when i haven’t read the book to judge, but those two would get me to take another look.

  3. Love the post idea!! 💙 Clary’s hair is just so vivid in the cover’s. There’s no way they’re bad… but my fav is the seventh from the top 😊 second would be your fav with Lily Collins on the cover 💙 Jen

  4. Wtf is that Noble Mine 2015 cover?! Omg! And I think that’s one of the very very few TV/Movie tie in covers that I like!! (your winner) they actually did a good job with it!
