Hair Chop & Product Magic
I become bored with my hair pretty easily. I like low-maintenance hairstyles, because I don’t have the patience to spend any more than 15 minutes on my hair everyday (and let’s be real – spending 15 minutes is even a rare occurrence). I’m really into the whole wash-dry, quickly-throw in some product and- go hair movement. And that’s why I love going to Gene Juarez where there is no judgement as I plop down into my stylist’s chair and say “I want a fresh cut that is effortless, looks great, and doesn’t require more than 5 minutes to put together in the morning.” Yes, I am a blogger. And yes – I’m pretty simple when it comes to my hair.
I brought in pictures of Sienna Miller’s relaxed yet chic hairstyle and Rose, my stylist, went to work. I’m so happy with the result. You may also notice the wonderful ombre coloring – that is from a previous visit to Gene Juarez (I talked a lot about it in a previous post). However this haircut makes the ombre color pop even more – which is like, total BONUS territory.
My Hair after Washing Out the Stylist’s Wonderful Do
Also: in the photo above, my hair has been perfectly styled by Rose (an amazing stylist at Gene Juarez – recommend her!) – and I know every woman knows the feeling of leaving the salon with a bounce in her step because her hair looks so incredible. However, getting home and trying to recreate that perfection often times results in a mess on top of your head. So, to be completely transparent, below is a picture of my attempt to style my new hair in a similar fashion. I’d say it turned out pretty good.
Ladies With Fine/Flat Hair: Must-Read!
One more thing. I have lots of hair – but it’s incredibly fine. What does this mean? It means my hair gets oily 5 minutes after I shower, it has a hard time holding any style, and it goes completely flat (especially towards the roots) as soon as I step out of the door. However – there are wonderful products you can use to fake fabulous, thick hair! I wanted to share them with you. You can find them below – these 2 products are the reason my hair is able to bounce, hold shine (but not oil) and remain soft & voluminous throughout the day.
