My Haircut

An updated “My Haircut” 
Here are a few photos of my hair straightened out. This may be a good photo to take in to your stylist, although I would argue that a curled hair photo may even be better since you can see all the layering. 
I cut my own hair, so it’s simply a blunt cut with a lot of long/medium layers. If you are looking for a celebrity haircut look-alike, look for some photos of Jennifer Aniston. 
I used Pureology Hydrate Shampoo and Conditioner, Aquage Uplighting foam, Aquage Beyond Shine spray (to help the flat iron glide through the hair), and finished with a tiny bit of Kenra Volume 25 hairspray.

original post: 9/6/2011

Due to some requests from my readers, I’ve taken side, back and front photos of my hair for you.

Here’s what that looks like on my hair:

(trying to force my hair to go “under”)    

This cut started off as a graduated bob and has just grown out into what you are seeing above. The layers are shorter in the back, to longer in the front. The bangs are simply side swept bangs. The bouncy curled under is a good go-to style for me since my layers are going to flip against my shoulders.

My hair is highlighted with lightener and I have a low-light about every 3-4 foils. See this page for details on my color

    Oooh thanks for the great product rundown! Very helpful! My poor old blow dryer just kicked the bucket, any suggestions on brands or ones with certain attachments I should look for as a replacement?

    Also, I come to your blog all the time for new and fun ways to style my hair in the morning and always get the best compliments! I even linked the one I tried out today on my blog this morning!

      How often do you suggest to get your hair trimmed if you are wanting to stay at the same length? I get a lot of split ends and my hair gets frizzy when I curl it when it’s needing trimmed. But, I don’t want to be getting it trimmed to often. So how often do you trim yours?

      Hi! I use the Yellowbird or Goldbird with fairly thick and fairly long hair, for which I am very grateful. I prefer my Goldbird over my Yellowbird because the Goldbird doesn’t “suck in my hair” since the vent is on the end of the dryer instead of the side. Man oh man does it save time! I can usually dry my hair in about 4-5 minutes if it has been drying in my Turban-twist while I put on my face. If I dry it immediately after getting out of the shower it takes 6 or 7 minutes. I have purchased my hair dryers from Sally’s Beauty Supply. And they are so inexpensive for the great quality! Round about $20, but don’t quote me, with the Sally’s Beauty Supply membership card. If there isn’t one near you I know they have a website, but don’t know about ordering from the site. You could try Ebay too!

    Annika: Your very welcome! I use a Rusk Speed Freak and it’s great. Super powerful and has a variety of heat settings (which is very important). You should never blow dry your hair on “hot”. Always choose the medium option.
    And thanks for the shout out! I’m going to check out your blog now!

    Hi there,
    I’m a new follower/hair-coloring addict.

    I have 2 questions: I’m wondering how does highlighted hair help with volume?

    My other question is, when my hairstylist does my highlights, they never seem to go to the root making it look like I have growth when I just actually had the highlights retouched. Should I say something to her or is it time to find a new colorist?

    Thanks so much for posting these pics! I’m in the process of growing out my A-line bob. Your cut is exactly what I’m hoping to achieve once mine is all grown out :)

  5. says

    I just found your blog and I’m your newest follower! Love how you share your hairstyle and what products you use. I think I need to buy more hair products and I also think I’m going to copy your hairstyle…love it! I have fine hair and I use a straigtning iron because my hair is wavy but I love the bounce of yours so a new hairstyle might be in the future for me!
    Thanks again!

  6. says

    I’m loving your cut!!! Do u think that cut will work if I have really frizzy hair. What products do u suggest for frizziness??? LOVE your blog!!

  7. says

    Yanet: highlighted hair has a texture that helps lift it away from your scalp. The color sort of plumps up each hair shaft.

    Sounds like you need a new colorist. You shouldn’t leave with what looks like regrowth. : (

    I suggest going to and searching for a Redken Certified Colorist (thats what I am). We are all trained the same way, and you will have a chance at getting much better results!

  8. says

    Brandi: check out Redken Real Control Slim Supreme. It’s my fav defrizzer. Completely lightweight too! A good flat iron should smooth out frizz too! See my FAQ page for more info!!

    Love your hairstyle & would love it for myself. I’ve been searching the web for similar styles. Here’s the sad news…I have curly, frizzy hair (a little longer than yours). I’ve tried all the products to tame the friz, tried Sulfate free shampoo & conditioner & even bought a microfiber headwrap & towel. Can’t seem to reduce the friz without a ton of mouse (which I hate the wet crunchy look). Do you have any suggestions? -Amy

  10. says

    I love your hair! Mine is shorter than yours so I can’t do that style but as soon as I decide to grow it back out I am definitely coming here for advice on how to do my hair! :)

  11. says

    Just found your blog and I am so excited. I have already told my sisters all about it. Love all the hair tips, so helpful. Thanks for sharing.

    I actually styled my hair today thanks to you! I have pretty long hair, but I did the same method you showed for this style and it looks good with long hair too. :-) So thanks!

    You are a hair celebrity! I saw you on pinterest and tracked down your blog. Thanks for all the great hair advice. I am so tempted to cut mine.

  14. says

    I found your blog via pictures on pinterest and I love it. I love all the hair how to’s. My hair is a short bob but growing…but it’s so flat now because my layers are long…but I’m gonna try to fluffy curled under look. Maybe that’ll help! KEEP UP THE TUTORIALS! LOVE THEM!

  15. says

    Hi Kate! I just found your blog this weekend (great labor day reading!) I’m wondering if you can tell me more about your hi lites, the level you use, what kinda foils you pull through, etc.

  16. says

    Can you talk to me about what colors I would tell a hairdresser to use to achieve this ashy layered look. I always feel it’s too yellow. I LOVE your color and your cut is where I am at in growing out an angled bob. Thank you!

      I’m not sure where at in south GA ur from but there’s a salon in St.marys ga that sells it. If ur not that way look on the aquage website and it will locate a salon for you, they also sell it on amazon(:! Hope this helps!!

  17. says

    I have to tell you, I have been trying for weeks to figure out how I wanted to cut my hair. Right now its about 2 inches above my waistband and really needs a good cut. So I have been looking and found nothing I liked until I came across your picture on Pinterest and fell in love with your hair. It’s exactly what I want. So thank you thank you for posting these pictures today so I can take them in and show my stylist what I would like!!

  18. says

    LOVE you cut!!! I tried the bouncy curled under look today, I had to use bobby pins I am getting duck bills this weekend. I am going to master this before trying the curling iron look! Thanks for the insipration! :)

  19. Valorie says

    I have been trying to do the bouncy curled under look but every time I flat iron my hair (flat iron as close to my scalp as possible and lifting straight up in the air) I never get that round bouncy look. Its either straight or big spirals. Not sure what I am doing wrong. My hair is growing out from a bob too.

  20. Kirsten says

    When you say your hair is heavily highlighted which contributes to volume, what do you mean? I love your blog btw! Thanks for posting!!

  21. says

    I just discovered your blog today and I am in love! Keep the hair tips and tutorials coming!!!!! I love your hair cut also! I so wished I lived close enough that I could have you cut my hair!!!!

    Keep being so dang cute!!

    Lori: I wash every day. I use a lot of product in my hair so I wouldn’t be able to get a comb through it if I didn’t.

    I’m actually going to do a post on this topic. There are so many reasons for both and it really depends on the person!!

  23. Caroline says

    Kate!! Have you tried Redken Blonde Glam shampoo?? I bought Body Full and the Blonde Glam and thought the Blonde Glam gave me more volumne! You know i’m always looking for some extra body like you!

  24. says

    Could you please, please pretty please do a video on the correct way to apply products? I never know if I’m doing it correctly. I just read your 7 Tricks post, and would love to see the amount to use and how to best apply.

    Hi! I have a question. I have pretty fine hair, and the last few months I have NOT been able to get a grip on my dry scalp. I have never had a problem like this ever. I’ve tried TGel, Selsun, Head and Shoulders. Nothing is a lasting remedy. DO you have any suggestions for a good everyday shampoo and conditioner? Or even like a every week product? Thanks so much! I just found your blog on Pinterest, and I LOVE IT! Can’t wait to hear from you

  26. Regina says

    I’m so glad I found your hair pic on Pinterest! It led me to your blog (which I LOVE) and I’m taking the style photos to my stylist next week! ‘Hope to be sporting a super cute long bob by Friday!

  27. Sara B says

    I also have the same question as Andrea about your color. I always end up looking kinda ashy and can’t get the color like yours that I want. I want Reese Witherspoon blonde!! Help! Thank you :)

  28. Sara B says

    No. I have asked her how to get more blonde (no dark) without looking white trash. She said Reese probably gets her hair done very often and has all over color. I don’t have the money to do that every three weeks.

  29. Sara B says

    If it’s easier I could email you some pics tomorrow to see what you suggest. I just want to look like a natural blonde without the dark underneath and on the sides :). Demanding I know :). Thanks for your help!!

  30. says

    I also found you through Pinterest, and your hair is so cute! One question–do you have any problems with the Aquage Uplifting foam making your hair look greasy? I have very thick hair that often weighs down any volume I can get, so I’m definitely interested in using a volumizing foam, but don’t want to risk it looking dirty by the end of the day. Thanks!!

  31. DawnCowell says

    So cute! I saw your pic last night on pinterest. I am going to the salon tonight and needed something with a little more layering. Do you have thick hair? It can be hard to find styles for thick hair. I love that you listed all of your Redken products. I am a big fan of Redken also! Have a happy hair day!

  32. Kerri says

    love love love your blog! i have always wanted to part my hair like you and have tried everything i and my stylest have thought of and it still always ends up parting down the middle. any tips you think i could try?!

    Hi my name is Lindsay. I came across your blog through pinterest from the bouncy undercurled hairstyle. So Cute!!! Then I saw the posts of your haircut and decided it was time for a change. My hair is super goes bast my mid-back and there is a lot of it. It’s also naturally wavy, course, dry, thick, etc… So, I brought those pics to the hairstylist(first time seeing this hairstylist and first haircut since I moved to Texas in December) and after cutting off 8 inches, I ended up with the aniston!!! It’s cute but not what I was really wanted. Any tips I could tell the stylist? anyways, your style is super cute and I’ve been enjoying your blog. Thanks

  34. says

    Anonymous: call the stylist and tell her. She should adjust it for no charge, but that depends on the salon of course.

    Ask for more of a graduated bob, instead of a long layered bob. That may help get the rounded shape in the back!

    Good luck!

    Hi Kate! im about to get my hair cut it will not grow and im just going to give in and make it look composed with a style that is shorter. Im nervous to make the back short but i want it to be at this “awkward” grown out bob length when i get it cut. Any suggestions to tell my stylist? Also, is this cut hard to maintain i have curly hair (i can blow dry it straight but i can curl it too, and it curls in humidity, but an ugly kinky) Thanks!

    Since asking my question re:frizzy coarse hair, I found your blog about real control slim supreme… hair is also fine, but thick, and color-treated. Is this a product you would recommend? I looked at the redken site and also saw smooth down. Which shampoo would you recommend? It’s so confusing looking at the redken site. Sounds like I need them all!!!! I want volume, but not frizz. My hair is cut very similar to yours. Thanks so much for your advice!

    Hey Kate!I would love if you could post a video on how to blow dry your hair properly! I feel that I have such a hard time with it and I never know if I should be using a paddle brush or a round brush depending on the style I’m wanting to create!

    I just found you hair and tutorials on pinterest and they are a godsend for less than gifted hair fixing people like me. THANK YOU!! I have naturally wavy/curly hair and haven’t had bangs before. Is a cut like yours do-able for my kind of hair or should I avoid bangs?

    Hey Kate! I love your blog! I saw that you are a certified Redken colourist and I had a few questions for you!
    1) I am a natural brunette and I have an all over color from a box in my hair currently (it’s a few shades darker than my natural color) I am really wanting to have more demension in my hair than just a flat color. I do not want blonde highlights at (bad experience with those) What would you suggest I do to achieve that?

    2) I am actually getting my hair cut like yours soon (so cute btw)! And my hair has hardly any texture to it, I have a lot of fine hair if that makes sense, what product/ best way could I have a little more texture to my hair?

    Thanks for answering my questions!!!

  41. Kristie Alderete says

    Hi Kate! I came across your pictures yesterday. Your hairstyle is absolutely precious. I’m a brunette and actually plan on cutting my hair like yours this weekend. I’m taking notes on everything in your blog. I hope it looks cute but like you said, since your hair is heavily highlighted it brings the layers out.

    I actually just got my hair cut like yours :) i love it already. I found your blog from Pinterest, and love love love it!! i always said i wanted to go to hair school after nursing school in order to do my own hair! Thanks for the tips! i love the bouncy curled under.Going to be trying it out!


  43. Brandi says


    I flat iron my bangs everyday and my hair/bangs tend to break at my part. It’s like I have baby hairs all over again. I can’t control them. They sometimes stick straight up. I use the Kenra 18 hairspray to “control” them the best I can. Can I use something to help them not break or even something to help them style with the rest of my bangs?


  44. says

    Brandi: they need protein to stay strong. Make sure you are conditioning them or spraying a leave in conditioner on them. You can also spray that in your hand and rub it over the hairs. But hairspray is good for trying to lay them down. Or you could try switching your part? That might hide them for now!

  45. says

    Thanks Kate, you have the exact style I try to achieve. I now know how to style it correctly. Boy I wish you were my hair stylist…… come to Australia and I will give you a free holiday…. I have ocean views and can hear the waves! Lets make a date now 😛

  46. says

    Kate- I love LOVE your hair and style blog but I have a question for your before I attempt some of the styles myself. What is your natural hair style like? I am growing out a similar bob to yours but my hair is quite thick, wavy/natural curl that I am trying to grow out. I usually am trying to tame it and take away volume, but I do like your styling tutorials. Before I end up looking like a lioness, I’d love to know what your hair is like pre-styling.

    Thanks a ton! Maura

  47. espo_1 says

    Hi Kate, Just came across your blog via Pinterest. I love your hair styles, problem is, I have very fine hair and find it hard to keep any sort of volumized look for more than 10 minutes. I also can’t seem to get it to hold curls. Help?? :)

  48. Alicia says

    Do you highlight your hair with a cap, foil or how do you do your color and what color do you use? I live in Alabama so no chance of using you but absolutely love your cut and color.

  49. says

    Nice! I love your hair! My girl friend’s hair is shorter than yours, so she can’t do this style, but I want to make her hair very stylish. I will tell her to see this article to get some idea for good hairstyle.

    Hi Kate~I have just discovered your blog and I live it! I have a question regarding hair products. My hair is very dry and damaged. It needs a good repair product, what would you suggest? Also, what conditioner would you suggest that is very moisturing and repairing?
    Should I use a deep conditioner?

  51. says

    Kate i love love love your blog. I’m a bit obsessed with all your hair styles and have been trying to do them myself. I have long blonde and I’ve decided to cut and donate it this weekend and using your’s as in inspiration :) Can’t wait!

  52. Brittany says

    Hi Kate ~ I adore your cut! I’ve been looking for a new style and I think this is it! Just the right amount of sassy. 😉 Two questions for you:

    My hair is naturally curly, pretty thick, and there is a TON of it! Will this haircut this poof out like crazy on me, or do I just need the right products to tame it down?

    Secondly – I always use moisturizing shampoos & conditioners since my hair is very full and tends to be a bit dry. Is there a Redkin line you would recommend for hair like mine? Thanks so much!!!

  53. says

    As with everyone above I LOVE your blog. I just got my hair cut and I HATE it. Its just a tiny bit longer then yours. All I can do with it is a slicked back ponytail… Love your cut. I am willing to lose some length… would a cut like yours work at a shorter length?

  54. Kay says

    Hi Kate. I wanted to start by saying I LOVE your blog and am dying to try some of the styles. Unfortunately, I’m in the painful process of growing out my hair and it’s now the length of a long bob (about 3 of shorter than yours) and I feel like I can’t do a lot with it. Do you have any quick “go to” styles for hair just a bit shorter than yours that would look good with “China doll” bangs? Any advice you could give me would be greatly appreciated.

    I have naturally curly hair which gets really frizzy when I blow it out. I use a Chi flat iron to straighten and smooth it. When I go to curl my hair with a curling iron after using the flat iron, my hair doesn’t like to accept the curl I’m trying to put into it. Do you have any reccomendations on getting smooth, frizz free hair and still being able to get a curling iron curl added to it?

  56. says


    I just found your blog and I love it. I want to get my hair cut like yours. I wouldn’t say my hair is really thick but I have a lot of hair. Right now it is really long and I have never colored it before. Based on what you said to others who commented, it has more volume, so I am afraid that mine won’t look as voluminous because I don’t color. Any suggestions?

  57. Martha says

    I went to get my hair cut and brought your style for inspiration. I think the lady must have thought I wanted to length and not the side swept look cause I have actual straight across bangs. I rarely ever get a hair cut or change up my style because I’m afraid the stylish won’t achieve the look I want. Any suggestions on how to fix them?

    Hi Kate! I just discovered your blog from Walking in His Grace. Love your blog and I think it could be a life changer (or hair changer for life)! :)

    I was wondering if you use a razor to cut your hair or just regular shears. I think I have very similar hair as far as straight, medium thickness and similar style cut but I don’t color my hair. I have had my hair cut with a razor in the past and loved the way it took out the heaviness that comes with a bob. Does it matter what method or tools are used when looking for a stylist? Thanks!

    Hey Kate!
    Do you have thick hair? I am wanting to cut my hair like yours (super cute) but I have extremely thin hair. I’m hesitant because I do not have the volume like you do in this pictures.. I’m sure you tease the back right? I can tease my hair just not sure if it’s going to be enough?

    LOVE the hairstyle!! I am overweight and tend to hide behind my long straight hair. Do you think people who are overweight would look good in this hairstyle. i want to goet it soo bad but am too selfconcious (sp?) to not hide behind it but t looks really drab! What do you think?

    I just found your blog today thanks to a friend on Pinterest. I have long, straight hair that is about to the middle of my back. It simply hangs there unless I put it in a boring ponytail. I will be taking these pictures to my stylist tomorrow to get this cut. It appears to be so versatile and easy to manage, yet it’s stylish and modern at the same time. Thank you for the tutorials and tips. Great blog and I will definitely return!

    Hi Kate…I just recently discovered your blog and I’m absoulutely in love with it. Today I actually tried curling my hair using directions from tutorial and very soon I will be trying the messy bun.
    In a few weeks I will be going to my stylist and taking your pics with me….love your hair. I have a lot of hair its just on the thinner/finer side…do you think your cut will work for me and I also have a round face.

    What would I tell my stylist if I wanted to have my hair cut like yours? I like the length in the picture but would also want to go shorter from time to time. I enjoy change. Also, how would I tell her to cut my bangs? What length and where should I part them? I’m thoroughly enjoying the videos!

I went this past weekend, armed with photos on my ipod, to the salon but unfortunately came out with a much different and less desirable result :( I’m so bummed!!

I know you are many miles away but I’m desperate…

    I am a stay at home mom and I have very fine thin hair. Would the products you have listed as what you use be good on my hair or is there something better to use on fine hair such as mine? And what style would work best for some one who doesnt have a lot of time to work on styling hair because I have small kids.

    I love your hair cut and it has inspired me to get mine cut! :) I have long naturally straight hair (to the middle of my back) that is parted down the middle. From the sounds of it my hair texture is similar to yours, medium thickness and somewhat limp. I have never had to style my hair because of it being straight I just blow dry it and that’s it. Do you think I can get a similar look as your curled under bob with just using some product and a round brush when blow drying it? I think this would take less time for me and would be something I would be able to manage. Thanks for your thoughts…I’m nervous to get my hair cut because it has always been long but I love your cut!

    Hi Kate! I am so happy to hear of your love for Christ. And it’s amazing to see that your generosity has and is being noticed daily! I wouldn’t be surprised to see you on tv soon. Love your easy to follow instructional videos. And like everyone else, your haircut. I went today and had my hair done like yours and it does wonders for my babyfine hair!! Absolutely love it! But the stylists always say they are using a light weight product. And my hair goes limp, even with teasing. I have no natural curl whatsoever. I am gong to try your regimen of products. But have also considered a body perm. What are your thoughts. I like to flatiron, or wear a little wavy. My hair damages so easy.
    Thanks, Teresa

    Ok..My stylist suggested some type of a bob cut, I have fine hair. I printed the pictures and ordered the aquage foam. I do hightlights already, so going Friday to try this sytle out.

    Kate, you’re a gorgeous and giving lady to post all these and answer our “dumb” questions. I love that I learned to do the pouf at the crown. I am a hair klutz , I only blow-dry, but am borrowing my teenage daughter’s flatiron. Now I will get one on my own, I lovwe it so much! Just wanted to express my gratitude.

  83. says

    Kate, I found you on Pinterest and just loved your hair! So… I chopped my super long hair off. Showed them your whole post about your hair cut, and I’m pretty sure the woman didn’t read a word. :( So now I have a way shorter, and super choppy haircut. Any advice on how to fix? It’s basically “The Rachel” from Jennifer Aniston in the 90’s. Ahhh… Any help at all??

  84. Erica says

    Hi Kate, I found your blog through Pinterest and am totally hooked! Your hair is amazing and I love your makeup suggestions! Thank you for all of the great tips, advice and pictures. I have a question about hair cuts: My stylist uses “thinning shears”. I’m not sure exactly what they are but I find I have a lot of breakage. Are the thinning shears causing this? Do you use/recommend thinning shears? Thanks in advance.

  85. Edie says

    HELP! Took your photos, etc. to my hair stylist, but what I got is NOT what I asked for! My hair is the same general length, but it wants to flip up rather than turn under. It seems to be too blunt cut in the back. Any suggestions (other than go somewhere else)?

  86. Shannon says

    You are adorable and do a fabulous job of demonsrating this awesome hairstyle. I am so clumsy when doing my hair and need these kinds of specific directions. Thanks!

    I love your hair! As a professional stylist, I was just wondering what face shapes you would say this hair cut could work with. Oval by any chance?

  94. says

    Hello Kate!
    I watch your tutorials regularly and wear my hair like yours, bouncy curls. I’d love to see how your hair is cut now that it has grown longer. Thanks!

  95. says

    So I’m going to get my hair cut tomorrow. I’m thinking a style like yours would look nice on me. My face is about the same shape (though with a little weight, which I’ve been working on loosing- sooo excited!) I need this change soooo badly, especially since weight loss is such a slow go, and I’m desperate to start seeing a difference. I have curly hair, like as tight as your ring finger (if that makes sense?)It’s not really thick, but not fine either. I can style it with an iron, but it is hard to keep it from getting frizzy if there is humidity in the air. I hate how it lays heavy on the top of my head then gets all poofy at my ears, then looks “lumpy” around my shoulders and back. I’m sure I couldn’t wear your cut with out styling every day (unless afros came back in ;)Should I go for it, or am I nuts to try shorter hair?

  96. Anonymous says

    Kate, now that your hair is longer, I would also like to know what type of cut it is “in”. What do you ask your stylist for? Just long layers?

  97. Sandy says

    found you today when I googled “growing out an angled bob”. I have quite a lot of growing to do, but definitely want this style.

    have the pics on my cell phone to share with my stylist.

    Omg thank you so much I’m also growing out an inverted bob and I’m dying!!!! Hair cut is Thursday!! So showing this to my stylist!!!

  99. says

    I love your haircut. Just thought I’d tell you, I had taken a pic of your hair style (that I had found on Pinterest of course) in to my stylist a few months back. He told me that 3 people had brought in that very same picture in all within a week! Wow! Isn’t that amazing! I’m trying so hard to grow my hair out but it just isn’t growing. Any tips?

  100. Brooke says


    I just love your blog! What product/line would you recommend to decrease breakage? One of my sides is shorter than the other from this which has probably occurred from daily hairdrying and flat ironing. Thanks in advance! Brooke

    thank you thank you thank you! you are amazing for doing this :) finally i have a good picture to take with me :) to the hairstylist.

    What a great haircut! I am always looking for cute haircut ideas or hair styling ideas to do. Although I have pretty curly hair, it looks nice straightened as well. Maybe I will try a cut similar to this one. Thanks for posting!

    I am new to your blog. I stumbled upon it trying to find some new hair styles. I am addicted!!! I love watching all your tutorials! Keep them coming. Oh and p.s. I WANT THE AQUAGE UPLIGHTING FOAM!! Where can I purchase it?? I went to Sally’s but they didn’t have it.

    I love your blog! Can you tell me what your updated hair style is? I love the layers.
    Also, what is “dry shampoo” and why do you use it? Thanks!

  105. says

    Thanks for posting this update now that it’s a little longer! Can you make a tutorial for how you styled it like this? It seems like it should be easy, but when I style my hair with a flatiron, it ends up really limp and with no shape to it.

  106. says

    Hi Kate!

    I just love your blog, and you!! I follow you on all forms of social media ( I promise I’m not a stalker, just a fan! ) I was wondering if you could update your current hairstyle with pictures. I am getting mine cut on 2/9/13 and want your look so I can master all of your tutorials! Currently, my hair is long and full of dead ends and needs a fresh, healthy cut. Thank you for all that you do!

    -Shelby Smith,

    Thanks for this post very informative, I feel strongly about it and love learning more on this topic. If possible, as you gain expertise, would you mind updating your blog with more information? It is extremely helpful for me.

    Hi Kate!

    I’ve been reading your blog for a while (I adore it) and I have a question for you. My natural hair color is dark blonde/light brown with reddish undertones, but it’s been dyed so my ends are a gross washed out rust color. I desperately want to go lighter (a little darker than your color) and I’m wondering how I could achieve that? I’ve gotten highlights many times in the past, but it never looks like I have blonde hair and instead just looks like I have obvious highlights put in. Any tips/advice that I could give a stylist?

  109. says

    Oh, also! The last time I got highlights, the stylist didn’t do anything to take care of the rust colored ends, so my highlights were two-toned as they went down the hair shaft. Is there anything that can be done so that doesn’t happen? Do I need to cut off a lot of my hair? I’m a mess. :(

    I really want to thank Dr Ishvara for saving my marriage. My husband really treat me bad and left the home for almost 1 month i was sick because of this,i was not my self again, then i told my friend about my husband case then she told me to contact Dr Ishvara that he will help me bring back my husband he told me what i need to do spiritually to bring back my husband. They cast a spell of return back of love on him. And he came back home for forgiveness and today we are happy again, i want you all who are having relationship, ex and even husband problem, and also getting back your wife to contact Wish you all success.

    I love these details! It’s so helpful when talking to my stylist. Would you be doing an “update” to this page soon?! I know you mentioned you were thinking of cutting it again since its so hot but I would LOVE details before you do! I’m wanting to keep my hair long (about the length of yours) but need a good cut so out isn’t so limp & lifeless! Congrats on your baby boy! We had our Christmas baby this past year(2012) & it’s just magical! You will be amazing!

    i have thick hair that is about the same length as in these photos, its just trimmed no layers or anything special. i usually straighten it every other day or (my hair doesn’t get split ends easily) but school is starting up again for me in a few weeks and i would like to try a different style with it. I have a blow drier, curling iron and straightening iron, but i am not very creative with my hair.
    Any suggestions for easy styles?

  117. says

    How would you describe your layers…I just had my hair cut by a new stylist. I was pretty impressed as she asked me a lot of questions. She talked me out of everything I wanted, and now I’m not really loving the cut. I had wanted long layers, and she said she usually discourages people not to have them in the back and just do face framing.
