I’ve recently received some questions about my haircut & the products I use so I thought I share a post all about hair!

I’ve had short hair for most of my life, but grew it out all during college and kept it long for about 6 years until I cut it short (for good!) a few years back. I’ve always loved having short hair but felt like I needed long hair to be more “beautiful” or only long hair was fun, but it’s not true at all and short hair is just SO ME! #youdoyou The best part is that it’s so easy to style (it takes me only like 5 minutes everyday!) and it doesn’t get all tangled up!! haha. 

Some of my hairstyles over the years: 

My haircut: When you have short hair, the cut really makes a difference!! I have an oval/round face so I get an A line cut (hair is longer in the front and shorter in the back) for a face-framing “slimming” look. The A line cut (remember when Victoria Beckham made it popular in 2006?) is great because it’s flattering for almost all face shapes. You can also adjust the sharpness of the A line cut so that’s is a subtle change in length. Having slighter shorter hair in the back also helps give you a little more volume!

Balayage: I had been thinking about adding some color to my hair for dimension and as soon I came across Kacie’s page on Instagram I knew I had to book an appointment!! I’m very low maintenance when it comes to my hair/upkeep so balayage is the way to go since it grows out well and only needs to be done 1-2 times a year. I got caramel balayage so it’s a little more ‘natural’ for fall and I love how it turned out! Not only is Kacie extremely talented, she’s so sweet and even runs her own salon, Sunkissed Salon!! #bossbabe (And as an added bonus, there is a boba tea place and ton of amazing restaurants in the same complex as the salon!)

Hair Products I use: 

I have fine hair that gets oily REAL fast so dry shampoo and texturing spray are my must-have products for volume. The trick is to put dry shampoo in your hair while it’s clean and that helps prevent your hair from getting oily as quickly as it normally would. I also don’t use hairspray anymore (just texturing spray on my curls) since I find that it weighs down my hair but if you do need hairspray I recommend going with a very light one if you also have fine hair.
