    I understand about not wanting to show how you cut your hair, but how about cutting your fringe? I often cut mine, just because I can’t be bothered to go to the salon so often, but some times it comes out better than other times.. =) So I wouldn’t mind some pointers.

    Kate, I always love your FAQ videos. Listening to your thorough answers and funny anecdotes feels akin to grabbing coffee with a friend…who also happens to be an amazing hair stylist. Thank you! I agree with Nienke about pointers-a lot of us are likely doing trims, layers, bangs, etc. on our own anyway, but I respect your decision to refrain. Keep the great styling tutorials coming!

    What size did you get your Tailor and Stylist Emerald skirt in? I went with the next size up but it still feels tight. Is yours tight on you?

  4. says

    I’m so glad someone thought to ask about using matching products. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen a shampoo that intrigued me and passed on it because there was no coordinating conditioner. I think it happened on Saturday as a matter of fact. Sheesh. I think I may go back and buy it.

    Love and blessings!

    I must still be mourning moving away from my beloved stylist. She cut my mom, sister and my hair for roughly the past 8 years. It’s been almost 2 years and I havent found any one comparable, ability and price. Everyone is so much more expensive in California its hard to afford shopping around. I’ve actually scheduled w her while home for Christmas and of course, she worked magic when all I told her is ‘I want bangs’.

    Love these videos! Thank you so much for posting them and everything else you put up on this blog. Love it all :)

    Two things – first, your lips are fabulous in this video; what are you wearing? Second (related to the shampoo/conditioner question), what do you think of conditioner washing (no shampoo, just conditioner used to scrub the oil and dirt out)?

    This is a great FAQ! I also love that you posted the questions and the time they are at the video, because not all the questions applied to me and my hair. Love your blog!

    On behalf of hair stylists, thank you for not posting a DIY haircut tutorial. The reason you know how to cut your hair is because you do that for a living and have been trained at it. I understand people trimming their own bang area or fringe. But no one asks a Dr how to do surgery or teach them to do their own stitches. Some things you just leave to a professional. I have fixed plenty of DIY haircuts and its not pretty. Cutting your own hair is hard enough even if you KNOW what you are doing, much less if you don’t. :)

    Great video! Also, I thought I would let you know that they are now selling Kate Spade handbags at the Nordstrom Rack over by Southpark mall. I bought a poppy colored, large Kate Spade handbag for $179 this past weekend there. You should check it out!

      I’m sorry, not Southpark… SouthPOINT mall, in Durham. I live in Brier Creek, but we will be moving to Charlotte in the fall, so I have the Southpark in Charlotte on my mind haha… brain fart!
