Time is literally flying by us. Too quickly to keep up with our busy lives, and definitely in keeping up with our looks! I looked in the mirror just the other day and cringed at the sight of my crispy ends and knew I had neglected to get a haircut when I was supposed to.
I made a quick call, was able to get a trim and Voila! I feel amazing and ready to take on the next couple weeks before my next appointment.
Don't fall into the same ugly trap. PreBook your appointment while you are still in the salon, that way- you are set up and you don't have to worry about forgetting to take care of yourself.
Come on! It happens!
Here is your friendly reminder to book your next couple appointments before the Holiday Season! You know you will be in a plethora of family photos, and you need to look good!
Sometimes I wish I could buy a fancy dress, a new pair of high heeled shoes, and have an excuse to schedule an appointment to have my makeup done. I need to embrace my femininity more than just taking care of my son and swiping a floral scented deodorant under my arms.
I want to back comb my hair and wear a heavy lid of eye makeup and go out, somewhere besides the grocery store with a pocket full of coupons and a weekly dinner menu plan.
I want a clutch filled with nothing but powder for my nose and stain for my lips.
I want my man to open the doors for me and strangers to nod and smile.
I just love little kids, and when little kids give other little kids haircuts- it kills me every time. I have had the pleasure of fixing a few of these incidents in my day, and I sometimes wonder what were they thinking and how on earth did they even cut those hairs where they did.
After listening to This Piece, now all my questions have been answered.
I was laughing so hard my laugh was silent, this is just too funny.
Where has everyone been? The ombre was a huge hit two years ago and all of a sudden I am seeing it like it is new or something. Come on Ladies! Get with it!
It's pretty and all, but what we are seeing now is even BETTER!
It is softer, more natural and whole lot more glossy!
I love Sofia Vergara and of course I love her hair.
This is why.
When you look at her in photos you are immediately drawn to her hair- why? Because it is shiny! And! If you look even closer, her foils are placed underneath the top section of her hair creating an ombre-like-look without the harsh lines of the 'melting'. Also, when the light hits it just right it looks natural, which is the whole purpose of the Ombre anyways, right?
I also love that Sofia's colorist glazes her hair with a clear coat for the extra supple shine. Ask your stylist to do the same, I am sure they would love to!
I can't tell you how often it is that I see this style out on the streets. Because it's like... never.
And, honestly, It makes me really sad. Look at how lovely this is.
The center part, splitting her pretty face right down the center, but achieving balance through the height on top and sides with the tousled mess. (Of course, there are certain face shapes and hairlines that just will not allow a center part to happen, and that is okay!)
I am in love. If you are someone who can wear a center part, DO IT!
Then, get creative with it, try pulling just the hair on the sides (by your temples) back and pinning them. Or, get real crazy and backcomb the junk out of it and create a low 60's pony! Get out your eyeliner ladies, because once your hair is done, you know you are going to want to slap that on next!

I think if I saw you in person with your hair parted down the center I would have to hug you. Thanks for listening.
While in Hawaii last week, I thought I would get a little cute with my hair. SO, instead of drying and styling my hair, because, let's face it, I was in Hawaii for crying out loud. I decided to part it down the center, just past my bangs, and braid them up and pin them into a sweet little heidi braid headband.
What I forgot about was that HOT Hawaiian sun beating down on my my nice round head, scorching my said center part.
I, of course didn't notice until I wanted to shampoo my head the next day. I should have opted for the crown braid, and if I had another set of arms and fingers may have attempted to do one on myself.
I should have sprayed some spf of my part. And this where is advise YOU to spf your head!!
Days after, I cringed everytime I looked in the mirror and saw what looked like dandruff, but was my head peeling. So embarrassing.
Crown braid was the way to go, NO part, and no worries of a burnt head.
