Most days my hair is spent swept up in a quick pony or thrown up into a sock bun (my fave) but to be honest, I just don’t want to deal with the huge mess it’s become. And maybe it’s the winter blues, but I’ve been feeling so UGH about my hair lately anyway. So when Hair Cuttery reached out offered to pamper me for a blow dry and style before a girls shopping day at Mosaic District, I literally couldn’t google their locations fast enough. With one only 3 minutes from our new place (SCORE) I happily obliged and set up the appointment.
To be honest, I didn’t even know Hair Cuttery did blowouts…I figured they probably did styling for events, like updos, but when I found out they could give me some beachy waves, I was in.
I just want you to take a good look at the before. Look at that face. That is the face of an messy-haired girl who desperately needs a bit of help. And look at the HAIR (#iliterallywokeuplikethis) - it’s so long and awful looking. I don’t typically check it out from the back so it was kind of a shock. Could anyone make that mess look any better? I could only hope.
Luckily, Katelyn (from the Purcellville location) knew what she was doing…and she was able to give me some tips along the way! Basically, she used a 1.5 inch curler then brushed through with her fingers afterwards to create that romantic wave. She recommended I grab the It's a 10 Miracle Leave in Product spray for my tangly mane and I am officially obsessed. It makes my hair super soft.
When she finished my ‘do, I was literally amazed. I shouldn’t have acted so surprised but I had totally forgotten my hair could look this good! Hair in my latest posts have been haphazardly curled or maybe not done at all and I was literally floored. AND she didn’t even mention the thousands of split ends I have. Bless her.
I thought $40 for a shampoo/blowdry/curl was reasonable given that other blow dry salons charge the same. And having it be so convenient to me was definitely a plus. I’ll be back for sure! To find the location nearest you, check out their website.
