4 inches later…

Last week as I sat down in the salon chair and looked at my stylist, Michael, I said, “I think it’s time for a change.”  He said “YES!” So after a little debating, we settled on a blunt, long bob with a slight angle at the front. I was nervous, but knew I couldn’t style my hair one more time the way it was and that it was high time for a fresh look!

I closed my eyes when he took the first cut, but 15 minutes later I knew it was exactly what I needed. Something really new and fun! After the cut, we lightened my color up quite a bit and it made SUCH a difference! I can’t tell you how happy I am about my new do! The whole thing was good for my soul.  Over the past week I’ve been really enjoying learning and trying new ways to style it!

So I thought it would be fun to share my favorite hair products I’ve been using. If one thing is true about short hair, it’s that products are EVERYTHING!

Gold Teleties

Okay, Teleties are EVERYTHING! I know I’ve shared with you my love for Teleties a thousand times by now, but just in case you forgot, these hair ties are the best. 

They keep my hair perfectly in place while I work out so I’m not constantly re-doing my ponytail. Whether you have short or long hair, you need these in your beauty arsenal ASAP!

Kérastase Shampoo & Conditioner

I have yet to find a shampoo and conditioner that lives up to Kérastase Densifique! I am borderline addicted to this line. I know it’s more on the pricier side, but it’s well worth it! I also use the mouse each time I wash my hair as well. It really does give your hair tons of body. If you have fine hair like me, you will freak over the results you get with this line, trust me!

 Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil Primer

I just started using this product this past week and I really love the way it is making my hair feel. It’s a really great and light primer and I feel like it adds extra shine, which is never a bad thing! 

In the past I’ve had a hard time finding the right primer. It’s always a bit heavy for my hair… This seems to be perfect, plus I love the protection it’s giving my hair as well!

GHD Curve Soft Curl Iron

I am obsessed with this curling iron. It heats up in 14 seconds or something ridiculous like that and works like magic! I love the “bend” it gives to my new cut and I can’t recommend it enough! 

If you are in the market for a new curling iron, look no further.

 Thickening Dry Spun Spray

If you get one thing today from this list, make it this. I’m so serious, you HAVE to try it. It’s an AH-MAZING. It adds texture, volume, and does something magical to your hair I can’t explain. Promise me you’ll pick it up. You will not be sorry!!

Slip Silk Scrunchies

These are the best scrunchies, especially if you are trying to preserve your blowout! At night I will pile my hair on the top of my head with one of these scrunchies. When I wake up my hair has volume and looks fresh. I know it sounds crazy, but try it, I promise it works!

Kenra Volume Spray #25

AKA the best hairspray ever. I actually just ordered another one of these yesterday! I’m telling you, it’s the best hairspray in the market… I even have a travel size I keep in my handbag at all time. I really don’t ever leave home without it!

Have you tried any of these products before?! Also, are there any that you are obsessed with that I need to try? I’m still trying to figure out this whole “bob” thing, so help a sister out! 😉

    I’m a brand new reader and I’m so glad I found the blog! Last Thursday my super long hair had been driving me crazy for weeks so when I read this… I realized I didn’t know why I hadn’t cut my hair already! haha So I called around and got my hair cut that night (it’s still a tad longer than yours). Then I was having trouble styling it because my hair is so soft and silky (not always a good thing!) so it wasn’t holding curl for more than an hour. I came back to this post and immediately went out to buy the Bumble and Bumble spray and holy moly. My hair looks amazing!! So thank you!! 🙂
