New Haircut!

Hi everyone! ♥ Here are a few pictures of my new haircut I got yesterday. I love it! I used to get my hair cut by the same person for about 8 years but I decided to venture out and found a great stylist here in NY. I know I might get some questions on the color, cut, styling etc so I've answered a few questions below. If you have any others just let me know! 


What color is your hair? The overall base color is my natural color (medium brown), which gets lightened naturally by the sun as well. On top of that I have very, very thin golden/caramel highlights just on the top half part of my hair (that's why it looks darker underneath and gives that nice sun kissed look). I also do occasional honey lightening masks at home which lightens all my hair slightly. 

How is your hair cut? My hairstylist did a great job sculpting really nice layers that frame my face perfectly. I always like having bangs or shorter pieces in the front because it gives a nice airy light feeling to the hair (and I think bangs are just so sexy!). When you have bangs, you want to make sure they connect with your other layers, so you dont have too much of a drop between the bangs and the next section of hair (if you like this hairstyle of course). Layers creates lots of nice movement in the hair - perfect for spring and summer! 

The Length: I wanted to keep as much of the length as possible, but still get rid of the dry ends. Since he layered it quite a bit, it feels a lot shorter (and healthier) but looks long at the same time, if that makes sense :) 


How did you style your hair? My hairdresser curled my hair in a backward direction with a large curling wand. I have a tutorial on a very similar hairstyle I did that you can watch HERE if you're interested. When curling your hair, make sure to curl it all in the same direction so that when you brush through it, it will flow nicely together, just like in the pictures below. 

Care & Maintenance: If your hair is fully colored or just slightly highlighted, it's important to deep condition it once a week or every other week, since it will be much drier than normal hair. And I always apply a few drops of Moroccan oil after shampooing and conditioning to lock in moisture. Of course try to use the least amount of heat and/or styling products as they can dry out your hair. Going "au naturel" is the best for our hair in the long run :)

  5. Hi Annie, Love your hair and new cut...Just wondering if you could tell us a little bit about you bangs (like how they are cut etc) because mine have overgrown so I need them cut too. Also I was wondering if you have a preference for which side you have your parting is because I always have mine parted on my right (so if a person was looking at me from the front my hair flows to the their right...I hope you get what I mean :) and so if I part the other way my hair just looks weird as my bangs are cut the other way...) Hope you can help...
    Bye
    Lot of love and kisses from Scotland

  12. Your hair looks fabulous!I have almost the same hair coulour and I'm also thinking of getting golden/caramel highlights,since it looks so nice on your hair!I also wanted to add that I really like you and your blog.You seem to be such a down-to-earth girl,not pretentious at all,but still so pretty and charming :)

    I've come across a few beauty blogs where girls simply love to expose themselves and generally use it as a platform for self-portrayal.They basically show off a lot,present their recent extremely expensive purchases(make-up and clothes),expose their luxurious everyday life and are not in touch with real life.Also many of them tend to overpose in their uploaded pictures,always trying to show of their boobs and back front as much as they can or making the duck face to appear as sexy as possible...I'm sorry if this seems to be judgmental,but it is really like that :) They transfer a very artificial image of them.I was asking myself like girl,do you REALLY think that posing like that is necessary?Especially in public spaces when you show us your outfit?Come on,show us some natural simple photos of you!Not even models in Vogue or Elle pose like that!Get some REAL inspirations :)

    This is the reason why I love your blog.You share your everyday life with us,give us excellent advices concerncing make-up,healthy lifestyle and food,etc,etc and still you manage to be the girl next door which everyone loves and appreciates and would consider a friend.You are very natural,stay like that please :)

  13. Oh and I forgot to say that critisizing those blogs I mentioned above has nothing to do with jealousy - many people tend to consider you that immediately,since they run out of arguments :) I am very satisfied with myself,my appearance and my lifestyle.Of course,I have my flaws and would like to improve this or that,but in general I am quite happy with myself :)Many bloggers and readers have serious issues with constructive critical words and this I find very sad...That's just my point :)
