Guess what amazing readers? I'm finally cutting my hair again! For the hardcore readers, you'll remember a little over three years ago when Nick Arrojo (of What Not to Wear fame) chopped it HERE. Three words for you: loved...that...cut! But ugh right now as it's gotten so long and annoying. No joke, I was seriously tempted to take my office scissors to it last week. It gets wrapped around me every night when I sleep. Then when I try to readjust myself, I actually put my elbow down on top of it and yank my own head...ridiculous! So yeah, no more Tangled for me, Disney can keep that idea, ha!
So I recently purchased a Groupon (if you don't know that that is yet, click the link now) for a local Austin salon and this is the option I opted for:
For $45, you get a women's precision cut, Kevin Murphy deep-conditioning treatment, shampoo, blow-dry, and style (a $90 value).
Sweet readers, I'm giddy with excitement and can't wait to a) donate my hair again to Locks of Love (more on that later) and b) have shoulder length (and manageable) spring/summer hair.
And what I'm most excited about is the amazing salon description Groupon used to explain what's in store for me. People, I'm so bonkers excited:
They specialize in precision cuts and inspired styles for all follicular floras and faunas. Mangled manes in need of a meticulous pelt pruning will first be luxuriously lathered in a conditioning treatment courtesy of the Kevin Murphy. A rich, botanical mask packed with key conditioning ingredients, it nourishes and strengthens strands.
I've never dyed my hair so excuse all the differences in color hues above. Real Simple's Beauty Makeover program (more on that HERE) is how I created these cool self images. They're color choices are hard to manipulate...trust me, I did my best. I'm going to keep my little virgin hair color the same. Why? I can't even imagine doing quarterly color updates because I can barely drag myself to get a hair cut. I'm totally not a hair person so yeah, same color...but a fun and drastic cut for sure.
I polled RWD Hubby and he gave his thumbs up on numbers 3 and 8. Which are your favorites? Really, do tell me...because I'll be taking the top three cuts to the stylist and will ask him/her which is best for my face shape and hair texture. So please share in the comment section below which choice you like for me.
My fave picks? I love looks 1 and 3 and I think they're a very similar cut, just styled differently! I think look 4 can also fall into this category as it's most similar to my natural hair texture. I love the idea of blunt bangs so 5, 6 and 8 caught my eye too. And those wispy layers in look 2 are so sexy but I know I'd need to bust out the curling iron or round brush for such tousled and pretty tresses.
I'm just trying to be realistic here because my fancy new hair dryer HERE is even pushing the limits during my busy work week. Plus, I've already had the cut in option 7 HERE so I'm game for something different. But man oh man, I totally loved that cut! Ok, I need your help. Give me any insight, insider scoop, etc on any of the above cuts! Can't wait to hear what you think and of course I'll be donating my 10+ inches to Locks of Love again...unless you know of another hair campaign that rocks your socks off?
