Unveiling of My New Hair

Do you remember how I mentioned that I was obsessing about straight bangs in my 5 things about me post? Well, you gals gave me that little push that I needed to feel confident about getting them cut! And the salon I was going to was offering a great deal, so I decided to get highlights for the first time as well.

Aren’t the bangs fun? They’re definitely a completely different look for me. At first I wasn’t sure what to make of it, but after staring at them in the mirror for a little while I’m really loving them. I think I might take some scissors and trim the sides so they’re more straight and less U-shaped though. I’m going to wait until I wash and style it myself to see, but I think if the bangs were straight across instead of slightly curved on the sides they might be more flattering.

As for the color my stylist recommended balayage instead of traditional highlights, for a more subtle natural look and I really like how they came out. Balayage is basically a technique where the stylist handpaints the color directly onto the hair instead of using foils. And since the highlights done this way don’t go all the way up to the roots, they’re much more natural looking and they’re also low-maintenance!

My new hair makes me feel like I’ve stepped off the pages of a magazine! It’s funny how the smallest of changes to your hair can make such a huge difference. Now I just have to see if I can replicate the styling at home.

      Thanks Elizabeth! I was obsessing about this top when I saw it on H&M’s website, and so I was so excited when I finally saw it in stores.

    I love your bangs! I think they suit you so well, and I’m glad you decided to cut them, it makes me want to take more hair risks!

      Thanks! You definitely should :). Hair risks are great because they can be such a drastic change but at the same time they always grow back.
