I pride myself on being the type of person who isn’t afraid to try new things. Throw any trend my way and I’ll happily give it a go. But, for some reason, I struggle with being this spontaneous when it comes to my hair. Cause’ let’s face it, there’s no return policy on a bad haircut! But hey, change is a good thing, right? That’s why when I scheduled my last salon appointment, I mustered up the courage to try out a new hairstyle that I’ve been wanting to for a while now. After countless hours of research, I decided to go shorter and much, much lighter than I’ve ever gone before. Two risks at once? Yup, this is a game changer for me.
“Cause’ let’s face it, there’s no return policy on a bad haircut!”
So, what’s my verdict? Well, it’s been more than a month since I walked out of the salon, which has given me ample time to get to know my new balayage “do”. Now I can confidently say, no regrets!
Serious props to my fabulous hairdresser — I absolutely love this cut and color combination! Not only is it super fun to play around with and style, but it also dries well naturally, which is great for gal’s like me who don’t like using hot tools on the daily.
“Now I can confidently say, no regrets!”
Most importantly, I think my favorite aspect of this new look is what it does to my overall aesthetic. ICYMI, my first blog post spoke about how I feel most comfortable and confident in any all-black ensemble. Now that winter has rolled around, I tend to stick to blacks and darker hues. Changing up my hair is my own (more permanent) way of adding a touch of color to my look during the colder months.
I guess my point is, don’t shy away from trying something new — especially if it’s something you’ve researched and have been wanting to do for a while now. No matter how big or small that change is, trust yourself and go for it!
