I get asked about my haircut often, and while the cut is very, very important I think the way it’s styled is really the answer people may be looking for.
The cut is simply a slightly A-line cut, meaning it’s a bit longer in the front than the back, with long layering throughout the cut. My hair is a medium thickness with naturally straight, limp texture. Coloring it blonde helps add some volume and texture, and the products I used help a lot with that as well.
I’ve been using Aquage Uplifting Foam for over 10 years. It’s a root lifting spray that goes directly at your roots to help boost volume! Over the years I’ve used different volumizing sprays or products mid-shaft through the ends, but I always come back to Aquage Uplifting Foam.
Likewise, I’ll use different texture sprays over time and one that I’ve truly loved the longest is Amika Un.Done Texture spray. It adds a nice grit and gives definition to the hair, whether curled or straight.
The hairspray I’ve been using for over 15 YEARS is Kenra Volume 25. It’s a strong hold but doesn’t feel heavy on the hair. It holds up fairly well in humidity and can be layered if you need more hold. It was the one product I did NOT want to be without when I did bridal hair when I worked as a hairstylist.
As much as I want to be a long hair girl, a mid-length like this is really my sweet spot. It’s short enough that it’s quick to style and easy to get lots of movement and volume, but still long enough to pull out of my face if I need to!
