If you have been with me for a while, then you know I used to have loooooong hair. My sister Kylie has beautiful long locks right now and I catch myself wishing I had mine back! Although I sometimes reminisce about the times when I had long locks, I really dig my shorter ‘do.  Sometimes having long hair was such a hassle, and was very hard to maintain. Cutting your hair short means a fresh start and a totally new look, and one look that is really in right now is the long bob haircut, but before you go cutting off your tresses and taking the short hair plunge there are a few things you need to consider!

Styling tools switch: The tools you use to style your long hair may not be ideal with your short hair. Big barreled curling irons usually get the boot and smaller thinner irons and straighteners will take their place. The smaller tools allow you to have better control of your shorter ‘do.FullSizeRender (4)

Style time: Shorter hair takes less time to style, which is a total bonus! You won’t have to wake up as early in the morning to style it and it takes less time to dry than longer hair does.

Hair heaviness: Shorter hair has less weight to it than longer hair. This means that if you have natural curls or waves, they will be tighter with short hair. I think that this is a plus because when you get out of the shower all you have to do is work a little product into your hair and you can let your hair go natural!

Saves money: Shorter hair= less shampoo and hair products!

It is drastic: Lots of girls have an emotional attachment to their hair (myself included) so the thought of chopping off your hair can be frightening. But, just remember, it WILL grow back! Buuuuuut..it will not grow back overnight. It takes minutes to cut your hair, but months to grow it all back. It is quite a commitment!

So, before you decide to board the “short hair train” give it a bit of thought!

XOXO, Chels

How to Fix a Bad Haircut

Imagine you’re in the moment, “I want bangs and lots of layers!”  Oops, bad mistake. Your hair already has a lot of layers and you have a small forehead already. …

Imagine you’re in the moment, “I want bangs and lots of layers!”  Oops, bad mistake. Your hair already has a lot of layers and you have a small forehead already.  Now it’s just a mess!  The bangs are too short and you look like you have all different lengths of hair.  What do you do now?!  Don’t worry; I’ve got a few brilliant tips to save you from a bad haircut.

  • If you have too many layers, making your hair look really choppy, avoid the flat iron.  Try curling your ends, curling some more than others to make pieces Chelsea Crockett- bad hair cutshorter or longer.  This gives the illusion of blended hair.  Also, slipping on a headband will camouflage stubborn short layers.
  • Hate your new bangs?  No problem!  Lucky for you, there are so many cute half up, half down hairstyles to get those pesky bangs out of the way.  Try twisting your bangs and pinning them up or wearing a hair scarf as a head band.  If you like your bangs but wish they were longer, try blow drying them from above and brushing them straight down.  Once straightened, they will appear longer.
  • If your cut is uneven, avoid the flat iron at all time.  Try curling your hair or call your stylist.  They will usually fix that for free!

Don’t freak out if you hate your new hair!  There’s always another options!

Love,

Is It Time For A Haircut?

You love your long hair and hate to cut it, but those split ends have gotten out of control!  Oh the struggle of being a girl.  I know haircuts can be scary, but trust me it will benefit you in the long run!  Check out these red flag signs to see if you’re ready for a haircut.

  1. Check out your ends to see if they are getting frayed, frizzy, or split.  This will cause your hair to look dull.  If your hair has lost its shine, then it’s probably time for a haircut.
  2. As your hair grows out, it starts to lose its shape.  If you start to notice that your layers are gone and/or your hair is becoming difficult to style, then a trim is much needed!
  3. If your hair is curly, watch to see if your hair “bounces.”  If your curls have lost their spring, this means your hair is lacking moisture and is due for Chelsea Crockett- naturally curly haira cut.
  4. It’s time for a change!  Do you ever get bored of your daily hair routine or think your look is “typical”?  It’s so easy to spruce up your hair with a slight trim or dramatic cut.

Getting your hair cut isn’t that bad!  It’s actually healthy and can help your hair grow.  Keep your hair healthy and happy!

Love,

Chelsea
