A New 'Do

Its usually around spring time every year I feel a little adventurous when it comes to my hair. usually that means a little shorter than normal. I know, I'm pretty crazy.

Yesterday, I asked my hair stylist to try something a little 'edgier', without really knowing what I meant by that. Thankfully she is awesome and I love how it turned out!

After--
it's shorter, razored and she used pomade for the textured look.

I love the idea of doing something different with my hair, but anything beyond a blow dry is usually really difficult to replicate at home.
What is it about hair stylists that make styling look so easy?

Here's Day two: my attempt at recreation of the style.

(pictures are bad bc the bathroom light was out so I had to use a hall mirror at work.)

I have a ways to go to get the styling down...getting the back flipped out more and the front a little sleeker.

We are off to a youth group retreat in the mountains this weekend. E is speaking (!) and we're supposed to get 1 foot of snow. I guess we deserve it after enjoying another tough SD winter :-)

I got the baking bug, so I'm taking these along for all the kids.

Happy weekend!

The hair is adorable! I want to know how she did the back of your hair too, I have almost the same hair cut but I love the edgier look! (Which let's be honest, is probably also because I can never keep the back of my hair straight and sleek for long anyway)

Katie, it looks so cute! I think you did a great job on styling it yourself. {I always have trouble with even just blow drying!}

I hope you have a great time at the retreat this weekend. Bundle up!

I always tell my stylist to do something "low maintenance" because I can never ever get it to look the way she styled it, and then I'm stuck with some lame looking hair. Never the less, it always looks fab when she styles it and drab when I do.

So cute, who/where's your stylist? I've been meaning to get my hair cut for far too long now, and I've never gotten mine cut by the same person twice here in san diego.

Also, when I was in youth group, I used to love going on retreats and really connected with the "grown ups" who came along - I hope you have a great time!
