I am truly sorry this post has taken SO long to publish. Every time I think I have all the information down, I add MORE! Lol. Hopefully, I now have ANY questions about my hair answered here, though! And for anyone wondering how I do my half bun, there is a complete tutorial on IG TV. (Linked HERE) Literally takes 2 minutes! 🙂
Also, all the products that I use are the EXACT ones. I’m not going to add any just because I “think” they work! And certain ones are better for certain hair types. It all depends! My hair is naturally straight and thick but heavily colored, so I use products tailored to that!
Q: What kind of cut/color do you ask for & how often do you have it done?
A: My haircut is a blunt cut to my collarbone! (I did get it above my shoulders this last time, but normally…) I have NO layers, though. I like the thicker look because it creates more volume, but recommend getting them IF your hair is naturally curly or you just curl it a lot. I wear mine straight 99% of the time!
I go to an Aveda salon, so they have their own coloring products. But I ask for bright, white blonde! My hairstylist foils my entire head with heavy highlights. (So heavy that it basically looks like straight bleach lol) I typically visit the salon every 6-7 weeks. If you’re local, Marcus (my hairy godmother hehe) at The Studio in Hattiesburg does mine!! LOVE him!! 🙂
**I want to add that I have been dying my hair since 7th grade, and it’s still super healthy! There is a right way to do blonde hair, and you have to find a hair stylist you can trust who won’t damage/ruin your hair**
Q: Why did you cut it? *I liked this question haha*
A: After obsessing over pretty extensions for months, I finally caved and got some. AND hated them! Lol. Don’t get me wrong, there are girls who rock em, but they were too much work for me! I had the clip in kind, and it was just such a hassle to securely snap them in, curl them, and try not to do any strenuous activity that would rip them out… Hahaha I just laughed typing that. So I said screw it, I’m going against the crowd and cutting it all off! I didn’t tell anyone except my mom because I didn’t want to be talked out of it! So short hair became the new me, and I’m still obsessed!
Q: How do you curl your hair?
A: I rarely curl my hair, but when I do, I use the Lange wand OR the Micro T3 curling iron. The T3 is pricey, but you can also wand your hair with it and the curls are really pretty! The Lange is great too, though. (I use the 1″ barrel for both) A lot of yall asked for a tutorial on how to curl short hair, so I’m thinking about doing one soon 🙂
Q: How do you get volume in short hair?
A: It’s so much easier adding volume to short hair versus long hair. The more length you have, the more weight that pulls the volume out! If it’s clean, I use Living Proof Volume Spray at my roots and work it throughout. If it’s dirty, my Batiste Dry Shampoo (I SWEAR by this) works wonders! Dry shampoo is one of the greatest inventions. EVER!
Q: What products keep your hair bright blonde?
A: Purple Shampoo 100%! The kind at the salon can be expensive, so I just buy a brand from Ulta that I’ll link below! I don’t use it every time I wash my hair or it would start looking gray! Lol. Also, don’t leave it on too long. I promise it’s working! (I know this from experience)
