Hair Therapy: Part I

Fabulous A-list hair cutter, Jen Atkin, of the Chris McMillan Salon, bestowed the great honor of chopping (trimming) my luscious locks…. I graduated from grad school yesterday (insert claps here) and was in major need of a little snip-snip for the big day. Not much, just some reshaping so that my hair didn’t appear so “heavy” (split and dead ends weigh down otherwise healthy hair) and my natural curls would spring back to life. The trick is all in the layering! You don’t need to actually take off length, you just need to cut into the hair and layer, layer, layer! This also provides natural volume and body (and God knows we’re all dying for more vavoom!).

As for my bangs, well, they’ve been a bit of a nightmare. I’m convinced that the front of my hair is thinning (as this is the ONLY party of my hair that I actually blow dry. If I didn’t it would be SO puffy and frizzy). So, we’ve decided to let the bangs grow out and just trim them ever so slightly so that they fall just about at my lips, framing my face.

So, here’s my Summer CUT (still long… I don’t think I’ll ever go short!):
