The Lob

"A woman who cuts her hair is about to change her life." That's what Coco Chanel once said. 

I don't know what it was, maybe it was the 90-degree weather, maybe it was because of the hundredth hair tie that broke because my hair was too thick, or maybe I really did just need a change. It's been about three years since my last short hairstyle. It may not seem too long ago, but considering how much my life has changed since then, it feels like forever. Here's a look at how long my hair was before the appointment.

In the beginning of July, I went to my hairstylist of over a year. We took about 10" of hair off, removing a majority of the balayage color that I had going on. Many days were spent on Pinterest, trying to find as many pictures as I could to convince me that going short again would not be something I regret. (You can find my "Hair" board here) Bianca has been my one and only stylist since my first balayage treatment, and each visit with her has always exceeded my expectations. If I was going to make this big of a change, she was the one to do it. She was the ONLY one I trusted to do it. I was immediately in love with the cut and I don't see myself going back to long hair for a while, I'm in love! Short hair is so effortless and easy to manage, how could I go back to hours of waiting for long hair to dry or a frizzy mess whenever it gets too humid out?

I'll be doing a tutorial on how I style my hair soon, including the tools and products that I put into my hair. I picked up R+Co products right after my chopping and these have been really helpful in keeping my hair healthy and in check. If you're in the New York City area, or are even willing to travel to get into her seat, Bianca always does an incredible job. You can find her work on Instagram as well as her contact and booking information on @HAIRTHRONE. Stay tuned for my upcoming tutorial as well as another hair update coming soon!
