Go For The Bold: Pastel Tresses

Nails, clothes, and makeup are not the only things flourishing in pastel hues this Spring. I am absolutely in love with all the pastel tresses I’ve been seeing all over the internet. As a woman who loves to color her strands, the boldest color step I’ve taken thus far has been platinum blonde. 

For inspiration, check out some of my favorite looks, compliments of Google image search :)

Have any of you ladies ever gone for the bold and ventured outside of the “black, brown, red, blonde” color spectrum? If so, what color did you go for? Did you love it?

Who Says Natural Girls Can’t Straighten Things Out?

It was about that time ladies and gents! I needed a hair cut and my color touched up and for some reason blonde just keeps calling me back. Just wait until summer, I’ll probably be platinum again (or a version of it) lol. My motto, go big or go home!

Ever since I cut my hair short two years ago, it grows back like wildfire! Look at how long it was below when it was just blown out … all to cut it right back off again. This time I went for a layered bowl-esque cut and I couldn’t be happier with the results! 

I want to say something to my natural girlies. Just because you straighten your hair doesn’t always mean you will have heat damage. It’s all about maintaining healthy hair (especially if you have color!) buy having the right products and tools.

Tips:

1. If you have color processed hair (I get mine done professionally), always look for a sulfate-free shampoo. This will keep your color fresh, strong, and healthy.

2. To protect your hair from heat damage when using a flat iron, always apply a heat protecting serum. (Paul Mitchell Skinny Serum and Biosilk Silkening Serum are a couple of my favorites). 

3. Limit the times a week you run a flat iron through your hair. Tie it down at night with a silk scarf or sleep on a silk pillow case to keep your hair tamed and protected throughout the night.

4. If you’re thinking about rocking a short cut and don’t know where to start, take a picture to your stylist of a cut that you like. This way they can get a better visual of what it is that you want! Be confident and rock it girl!

FYI: I get my hair custom colored by a professional stylist at the salon! I do not color my hair on my own and I do not cut it on my own. So I cannot recommend store bought color products. Thank you :)
