I get a lot of comments and questions about my hair so I thought I'd run through what I ask for when I get it cut and how I style, etc. It took me years to finally figure out what to tell my hair dresser I wanted and to learn to stay firm on communicating that. Because I know my hair and how it reacts to heat, humidity, cold weather, layers, etc and it's so important to be bold about what you want when you sit in that chair. Here's a bit about what I say to him EVERY SINGLE TIME. Don't assume he/she will remember.
- No layers shorter than my jaw line. My hair is thick and if I have short layers, it puffs up like a triangle. Layers right under my chin frame my face and add dimension to the length.
- Only long layers in the back and keep the length. I usually only get about an inch cut each time I go in and have him clean up the layers. Then, I trim every so often to keep it healthy.
- No thinning shears. To me, these are the devil. If you want thick, full hair then it's best to stay away from anything that thins your hair out even more.
For basic styling: If you're hair is thick and wavy, like mine, blow dry 70 -80 percent (make sure you dry the front pieces all the way) and twist it up into a loose bun on the top of your head and let it set/dry all the way. That's what I did in this pic and the pieces fell as they wanted, but again, a lot of it is in the cut.
Happy Friday!! I just moved in so expect some great before/after DIY home projects coming!
