Helpful Links for Girls With Bobs

I’m having lots of fun playing with my shorter ‘do. I hesitated chopping my hair for so long — even when I really wanted to — because I worried it would be too hard to style and manage. But it’s so easy! Fortunately for my lazy hair skills, the modern…

Tips For Tousled Tresses

  If you spend any time on Pinterest — admittedly, I haven’t recently — you’re likely to stumble on a photo or twelve of Anh Co Tran’s textured lobs and bobs; you’ll recognize them by the cool girl “undone” texture and perfect highlights. I brought half a dozen screenshots of his work…

I’ve been coloring my brown hair since I could drive myself to the drugstore. When I decided to grow out my ombre highlights last year — still a work in progress — I thought I’d give my hair a rest from the chemicals and go au naturale for while. It turns out, I like…

I have two go-to hairstyles: loose and wavy, and messy top knot. I pin hair tutorials like it’s my job, but I never make an effort to try anything new. Like, ever. So let’s not get crazy and call this a resolution, but I’m hoping to mix up my mane now…

my favorite haircare products for highlighted hair

Drastic changes can be tough on your mane. In my case, I’m fortunate to have healthy hair and a stylist who knows what she’s doing with color, so even after three rounds of highlights — both foils and balayage — it’s still in good shape. But my lightened locks definitely…

new lengths

I’ve spent the last three weeks pinning hairstyles. Asymmetrical bobs, long layers, bangs, color and tutorials I’ll probably never try. I’ve waged a war with myself over that age-old question: To chop, or not to chop. I dragged Chad into the fray, showing him picture after picture of blown-out coifs and…
