Outfit Deets: Sweater (wearing a small/medium) / Leggings (wearing a small)
My most commonly asked questions are definitely about my hair, so I figured I would do a little update on all things hair for ya! If you’ve been around for a while, then you probably remember my long hair. I pretty much have had long hair my whole life, so you can imagine what a big deal it was for me to chop it all off! I still can’t believe I was brave enough to do it! BUT! I am so glad I did. There are so many advantages to a shorter “do,” one being how much freaking time I save on drying and styling it! I mean…I’m gaining hours of my life back y’all! LOL!
One thing that I wanted to be sure to include here is a quick guide on my hairstyle that includes things like the type of cut I have, the type of color I have, what to ask your stylist if you’re thinking of trying this style out, upkeep, maintenance, etc.! I always find it so helpful when people share this info!
My Hair Style Guide
My Cut: I have a long blunt bob that hits at my shoulders with long piecey layers.
My Color: I have a balayage with a combo of low lights and highlights. Also referred to as a rooty look with cooler ends!
UpKeep: I’m naturally a very dark brunette, so my blonde tends to get a little brassy around the 6-week mark. I use this shampoo and this conditioner to protect my color as long as possible, and then this purple shampoo to combat the brass until I see my stylist again! I don’t use the purple shampoo usually until about week six.
Maintenance: My hair grows fast, y’all! Thanks, Modere! 😉 So, I get my color touched up every 6-8 weeks! Mostly I try to stretch to 8 weeks if I can!
My Hair Type: Very thick with a slight wave! Thick hair will look and feel even thicker if you go short! Not a bad thing… I love it! The wave helps my curls last longer!
I do have a few new tools and products that make styling my short hair easier for me, so I thought I’d share them with you here!
Tools and Products I Use
to Style My Hair
- Revlon One-Step: Hair Dryer + Volumizer – Serious Game Changer! I haven’t used a regular hairdryer in over a year!
- 1.25″ Curling Iron: I use one similar to this but will be purchasing the T3 Single Pass Curling Iron soon!
- Living Proof Heat Styling Spray: Spray on damp hair to protect from heat styling
- Living Proof Flex Hair Spray: My holy grail hair spray! It’s so good!
- Living Proof Frizz Vanishing Oil: Helps combat frizz and adds shine to ends!
I adore this, thank you very much for sharing. As I said on insta, your waves are the absolute dreamiest. We have the same haircut by the way, but mine is parted on the side.
You are so welcome! I’m glad it was helpful. And yay for the same haircut! It’s the best! 🙂

[…] year, and I honestly have not used a traditional blow dryer at all since I’ve had it! I have a full review on it here, plus an IGTV How to video on it here! Such a great price, too, under $60 but goes on sale quite a […]
