With warmer temps comes the desire for all things new - new makeup, new clothing, and new hairstyles! While some people go for a drastic change in summer, I have found my hair happy place (thanks, Nadine!) and have shifted my focus to finding out new ways to style it!
But sometimes, I get into a hairstyle rut. So whenever this happens, I find myself popping into Hair Cuttery to have them play with my shorter locks.
This time, I brought this gorgeous hair chain (yes, it’s a thing and no, I didn’t realize it until recently!) from Headbands of Hope. I talked a little about them in this post, and I love that they have both a beautiful mission and beautiful products. I topped off my look with this intricate, beaded necklace made my Conflicted Pixie, an adorable online boutique that’s local to DC!
While this piece can be dressed up for a date night, wedding or other special occasion, I styled it with a simple maxi dress I bought from GAP last year. And remember how we talked about fashion math? Because my dress is more on the casual end, I had Hair Cuttery do a more romantic, half-up ‘do this time. To be honest, when I went in, I had no idea how I wanted them to style my hair. All I said was, “I want it to be romantic (per usual), and to use this hair accessory.” Then I let them do their magic.
I’m in love with how it turned out! For my next day at work, all I did was let out the bobby pins, throw on a little dry shampoo and ran my fingers through it. I love getting the most out of a blowout.
