I recently decided to chop my hair. I was getting so bored with my hair and just need a change, so I said why not! I’ve been experimenting with a bunch of new products and finally figured out what work well for me and how I like to style my hair. Now I am here to share my short hair care routine!
How do you get your hair done?
I get my hair done by 2 different gals – one for cut and one for color. Diane Ford has been my go-to for my cut since I was in 7th grade. When I decided to chop my hair, I told Diane I wanted a collar bone length, slightly aline lob (lob = long bob) and I got exactly what I asked for! Diane is truly an artist with hair. She takes your vision and makes the cut work for your face shape and hair texture. She truly amazes me as a stylist. As for my color, I see Rylee Heyza at Beyond Salon! Rylee is phenomenal at what she does. I trust her completely and just give her creative control of my color. She always gives me a balayage and customizes a honey blonde color to seamlessly blend with my natural brunette color.

I use the OGX Anti-Hair Fallout Niacin3 + Caffeine Shampoo. It leaves my hair feeling squeaky clean and gives it a ton of volume. Currently, I’m in between conditioners. I’m almost done with my DevaCurl Weightless Waves conditioner and I am thinking about trying the Living Proof Restore next. Any conditioners out there that I need to try? Leave me comments and recommendations!
I love the TIGI Bed Head Dumb Blonde Purple Toning Shampoo! It smells fantastic and works very well. I use purple shampoo once a week to keep the brassiness toned down.
I love and swear by the Olaplex No.3 Hair Perfector as a once a week hair treatment. It does wonders for dry, damaged, frizzy hair. If you color your hair, you NEED this product in your life. When I style my hair with heat, I use the TRESemme Thermal Creations Heat Tamer Leave In Spray to prep my hair. I also love to use the Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil Heat/UV Protective Primer so the sun doesn’t alter my color.
I am a nighttime shower-er, so after I get out I just brush through my hair with my Tangle Teaser and let it air dry overnight. When I wake up in the morning I usually throw some loose curls into my hair. To do this, I start by spraying some of the Living Proof Full Dry Volume Blast. This gives my hair a ton of texture and grit. Next, I take my Remington Pro Color Care Straight Barrel Curling Wand and throw a few curls into my hair. It has a 1.25” barrel which is perfect for creating messy, beachy waves. To make sure my curls hold throughout the day I spray some of the Bumble and Bumble Does It All Light Hold Hairspray.
