I Cut My Hair!

Seven months in and I caved! OK, it was really more of a trim, but still scissors touched me head. And I’m really glad I did it. Sassoon Salon in Miami Beach asked me to put together a blogger afternoon of hair and makeup, which was a really good time. It’s always fun to get the girls together and hang out. But we also got a lesson in hair trends for upcoming 2014. As the team at Sassoon was showing us the slides of trends (think middle part (I’ve been rocking that!), slicked back, side parts and texture), I couldn’t stop looking at the cool, structured cuts. It made me miss the bob oh so much. Let’s face it growing your hair out sucks. Plain and simple. So when Joseph suggested lobbing off my dead ends with a trim, I nodded my head. And the next thing I knew, my bob was back, only a longer version of it. We really only cut off an inch of ends, but it made me feel that much better to get rid of the scraggle. A few of the other girls chopped off their locks, too, which made the afternoon all the more exciting. Our motto for the afternoon, Go for it, embrace change!

Bloggers doing what we do.

Lessons in hair trends.

Jana of OJ sand Cigs and I are now members of the cult of the black robes.

Kelly Saks of Kelly’s Kloset and Kristen of Living in Color Print before their transformations. I’m so excited they tried something new and exciting.

Lather, rinse, repeat.

Before the big moment.

This is happening.

God forbid a moment of my life go undocumented. #bloggerproblems

Seriously, how stunning is Martha of  Princess Martha? I mean, really!

I’m feeling pretty Viva Glam.

So long, old look. Kristen is ‘do-ing it up.

She totally wins my favorite look of the day.

My look of the day. Blunt ends, one-length bob. I feel like me again.

Steffy went for long and lovely curls.

Unfortunately, it was raining, so Steffy and her brood (her mama and aunt) decided to bag it up. They were seriously hilarious and adorable.

Cheers (with a champagne circle) to a perfectly good girly afternoon. To see more of the pics of everyone’s transformation, search the hashtag #miamilovessassoon on Twitter and Instagram. You can also check out the salon at 660 Collins Ave, in Miami Beach.
