My Haircut (and a secret)
links + things
I have to tell you a secret? There is nothing special about my haircut. It is an incredibly simple, straightforward haircut. The bottom is cut straight, with only a tiny bit of an angle left on each front side to compensate for when I tuck my hair behind my ears.
The layers are long, basic, and I’m regularly on a journey of trying to grow out my layers because I like a simple mid-length cut with minimal layers.
When I’m asked, “how would you explain your haircut so I can ask my hairstylist for the same thing?” on social media, I always reply with the recommendation of taking in any photos of the haircut you like (whether it’s mine, or someone else’s) so the stylist can see what you are going for.
“Mid-length cut with long layers” means a lot of different things to a lot of people, so visuals are often the best way to communicate with an artistic person like a stylist!
If you’ll allow me to be totally honest, I think a lot of the reason why my haircut may seem special is due to the color and the styling. The color is the most perfect blonde of my life from Jordan David at Douglas Carol Salon in Raleigh. And the styling is due to years of practice and a true love of styling hair. When I worked behind the chair, I loved doing bridal hair, styling the hair after haircuts, etc. The finished result is just so gratifying. It can really lift your spirits if you’re feeling down. So it follows that I genuinely enjoy styling my own hair too. It comes naturally, and I love using products too.
So with all of that said, I want to tell you (with confidence!!!) that you, too, can style a mid-length cut with long layers with the use of volumizing products, great hair tools, and a little bit of effort to make sure the styling lasts all day.
