let's talk hair

let me start off with saying i’m not the type of girl who’s really into hair and make-up products. i never really learned how to do that stuff, and am pretty super low maintenance when it comes to that. i rarely wear any make-up at all, and usually only do my hair for special occasions. i have been “that girl” at work who’s hair is always in a ponytail. but as i hit 30, i realized that i want to start being more “grown-up” and have started incorporating some things into my non-existent beauty regime....more

Women Need 2 Blow Dryers

It may sound crazy, but many women really need to own two hair dryers, according to many beauty experts.  The dryers with ionic technology, which are in almost every store now, work great if you want a smooth, sleek hairstyle, but not so much if your style is more about having great volume and body.  If you switch your style up, you really need both an ionic dryer and one that is not ionic. Some newer models have a switch to turn ions on and off, but they are a bit more pricey....more

The Great Hair Debate Pt 3: The Hair Diaries

This Happy Blond Blew It...

I just read a timely blog about embracing grey hair on this site. Good blog... just not me. Embracing grey hair is like aging gracefully. Yeah…that’s not me either.  I see women all the time who look amazing with grey hair. Mine just shoot out in all directions.

The necessity of everyday beauty

My hair’s tricky. At least I think it is. I don’t have much, really. It’s fine and has a wave, but past a certain length it looks terrible.
