At this point in time it’s no secret, I chopped off all my hair! It happened last Wednesday at Adelaide Salon here in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. It’s not that often I make a drastic hair length change like this, so to commemorate the event, photographer Joel Stigliano tagged along to document it.
My long time stylist Casey (who also did my dip-dye) did the honors. I wanted to donate the hair to Locks of Love, and I had so much hair it resulted in two ponytails we chopped off. All in all I think it was about 10 inches we took off.
The style I wanted was an inverted bob, which is longer in the front than it is in the back. Casey took her time really perfecting the shape and when it was done, it was perfect! Very flattering to my jaw line.
Also, for anyone wondering, the best way to cut curly hair is when it’s dry so you can see the natural curl pattern. That’s why Casey’s cutting my hair prior to us washing it.
During my entire appointment, we had this adorable guy watching us. Can you believe he’s just a puppy?! Probably the most well-behaved puppy I’ve ever encountered.
Once my bob was pretty well-shaped, it was then time for color. I decided I wanted to dye my hair back to my natural brunette. While I loved the red, it was too high maintenance for me. Adelaide Salon carries Organic Color Systems which is a vegan line, so I was all set!
After the dye set it was then time to wash, set and dry the curls.
I often get a lot of questions from readers on how I style my hair, so stay tuned next week as Casey walks us through a curly hair styling tutorial!
