new ‘do.


It’s been about six months since I sat in a salon chair. I’m so grateful to have an amazing stylist* who’s incredibly patient with my crazy schedule, and hasn’t fired me as a client after all my last-minute cancellations because of unexpected things popping up at the shop. Today the stars finally aligned, and I got a loooong overdue shape-up.

He cut some new layers to remove all the bulk — I have a head full of hair, ya’ll — and gave me a tiny trim on the ends. We skipped the blow-out, and opted for some Moroccan Oil through the ends and an air dry instead. I rubbed in a little Dirt Texturizing Paste when I got back to the shop (I love that stuff, and keep it in my bag for quick touch-ups).

A lot of you have asked about my hair routine, and I’m hoping to share it soon, along with my current makeup favorites. They’re both pretty simple. I’m all about low-maintenance these days!

* For the locals: I go to Spectrum Hair Studio downtown, and work with Bill or April (the husband and wife team that own the salon). Between the two of them, they’ve shaped my coif from super-short bobs to long locks and everything in between for more than six years.
