My hair endures a lot of abuse. Every morning I run, it goes up in a very tight ponytail and then if its a work day I will blow dry and/or straighten it.
I try to avoid washing it too much but when I sweat I usually end up shampooing in order to not look like a total grease ball. My hair is pretty fine and most of the time I just don't want to bother spending the time styling it so I just let it air dry and then it looks like I just rolled out of bed (as one of my co-workers fondly said one day)!
So last week I finally got a hair cut - a good hair cut. Previously I would just wander into any salon and tell them that I wanted my hair "trimmed" and just a straight cut. Well 15 weeks post crappy hair cut, I would look like this...
This time I made an appointment at a salon where a friend works and had her actually style my hair. She added a few slight layers and a bit of a face frame - nothing drastic but a bit more girly and easy to manage. Here is how it turned out...
Perfect! Still long hair - still able to put it up in a ponytail but now I have life in my hair and an actual style! And I love it. Now I just can't get lazy and I have to do my hair everyday!
Now I just have to figure out some good products to use in my hair so I don't destroy it by blow drying and straightening it everyday!
Do you style your hair everyday?
