Although it felt shorter, because I lost my long, detached pieces in the front of the A-line, the look with
the blended ombres was so fun- and quicker at the salon to accomplish.
I celebrated with a pic on Instagram that hit Pinterest and Twitter all at once (not bad for an old gal).
I even spent a few days leaving it naturally curly. My lifeling quest is to come to terms
with all the natural curl. Someday.
Last month I postponed my hair appt (yikes) because the length in the
back has finally passed the collar of my shirt.
A huge milestone in the growing out phases of a serious stacked A-line. I want to give it
another month to get a bit more length before I trim the edges and shape it again.
The ombre highlights are still here...and I love them.
You may not see that big of a change, but in the back some of these layers have grown two inches or more, and it still has a style that feels fun and fresh.
The ombre highlights are more dramatic with a little more length of the darker shade.
(so easy to touch up to cover gray hairs.....I am in love with that).
Curls created by wrapping hair around a curling wand from Sally's Beauty Supply.
Major love how the wand curls look.
See that silky, shiny hair?
Let me say I did a coconut oil treatment on my hair
as demonstrated here on How Does She. ( great blog!)
(Basically slather on 100% coconut oil, kitchen grade, and let it sit under a shower cap or plastic wrap for 20-30 minutes, or heated for 15. Wash and style as usual). Once you get the hair a little more conditioned, the ends will stop breaking and you will notice the growth better.
I think my hair looks great, and it felt great the minute I stepped out of the tub.
On day two, or after a long nap, you can opt to try a messy updo found on The Small Things Blog.
Not as great as hers, but I love the random feel of it,
and it is perfect for days that I want to wrap a scarf around my neck a few times.
Every day, basically.
Not sure what I am going for, but just a longer, casual do that I can leave down or messy bun up
would be perfect.
Jessica Alba inspired? Maybe.
I love her length in this picture and it looks great with the dark/carmel mix colors.
The quest continues....
I am brushing, massaging, oiling, and loving my locks to promote a little more growth.
We will see how they respond!
