I’ve had getting a hair cut on my to-do list for forever. And when you’re stuck at home and need a pick-me-up, a haircut is definitely in order. And bonus points, because your mom is more likely to agree to pay.
I’d been super inspired with some of the “french girl” shags that I spotted on Pinterest, in part because they seemed so low maintenance, but still could have some sex appeal. Although that’s something I’m still not even 85% sure how to master.
I haven’t found a stylist in New Orleans that I really click with. They always seem overwhelmed by the thickness of my hair, and the low maintenance way I style. My main rules are that the majority needs to fit in a ponytail holder, and that it can be easily styled with some sea salt spray and wax.
Once you get rid of all the split ends, life seems a little more manageable.
As for the color, I had gotten a bit frustrated a few weeks ago and decided to find a box color, L’Oreal Feria ‘Deep Espresso’, that closely matched my roots. While I love a fully highlighted look, in 10 weeks there’s going to be a baby, so who knows when I’d be able to take a day for a refresh.
Now that my hair is taken care of, it’s time to conquer everything else in my life.
Or take another nap. Whichever comes first.
