FBFF: Hair Care

Can I be her?

I kind of had a secret desire to be a hair model. I wanted my hair to be that big and shiny. Now I realize it's completely fabricated but we all try to live up those ads, don't we? I guess this topic also relates to my hair journey post.

1. How often do you get your hair cut? 
I am very stubborn with my hair, stylists love me- not! I know what I like for my hair so I don't get it cut too often just in case I don't like it. I also like my hair long so I like to leave time in between for it to grow out. I'm pretty blessed with no split ends so I don't feel that I need a trim constantly so I get it cut maybe two or three times a year.

2. Do you go to the same stylist each time, try someone new, go to the cheap hair cutting chains or live it up in a salon? 
I stay pretty loyal. I went to a stylist at my mom's salon and stayed loyal even when I moved out to New York (she's in California). I was going back often enough that it was fine but recently I started trying salons around New York. I am on a fixed income so I can't splurge. I tried the Aveeda hair school where for $20 students cut your hair but wasn't too happy with it. I got my hair done for my graduation at another place and was not happy. So now I'm going to a chain called Dramatics which is $40 (amazing price in Manhattan) and they don't hassle me. I know how I like my hair so they cut it that way.

3. Do you color your hair? How often? What’s your natural color? 
Nope. "Virgin" hair as I guess they would say. I've joked that when I start going gray that I'm going to dye it bright red (which I might do) but otherwise I like my natural color.

4. The one thing you always do to keep your hair looking great is: 
Oh that's tough... I guess not washing it every day. My hair definitely looks and feels better the less I wash it. I usually go about 4 days (some dry shampoo in between). I've recently fallen in love with heat protectant sprays!

5. What hair trend do you love and wish you could rock?
I've always admired girls who can pull off short hair. I don't think I can pull it off but girl's like Carey Mulligan look so cute with it. I can dream!

What hair trend do you wish you could pull off?

Don't forget to stop by ModlyChic to read all the other FBFF answers this week!


  1. I too wish I could carry off a short 'do...I just don't have the face for it!

  2. Neither do I! Mine is way too round :(

  3. Love Carey Mulligan's hair! It's so dramatic, which is probably why it's such a hard style to pull off. I've been short before, but longer is more flattering. Oh well ... !

  4. Uhm, can I have her hair too?? I'm actually a fan of long hair, even though short hair looks adorable on so many people!


  5. funny you paid $20 for students to cut your hair. My brother got students to cut his hair before but it was free. He either gets free cuts or cuts it himself.

  6. You liked the title of my post and I like the name of your blog! I smile every time I see it! Debbie
