Almost a year ago I decided to do something that I swore up and down would never happen – I stopped coloring my hair. It may not seem like a big deal, but for the girl that started her highlights in the seventh grade, this was unchartered territory. I wasn’t even quite sure what my real hair color was below the years and layers of blonde. But I was tired of the constant appointments, the harsh chemicals on my hair, and I knew that it wasn’t healthy. In part that was the fault of my allergies and stomach issues that then started to show through my hair, but the constant coloring was definitely not helping. Ever since my health problems have shown themselves in full force, my hair just isn’t what it used to be. So I said goodbye to my bright blonde and embraced the natural ombre that was to come. I also stopped cutting my hair during this process, bound and determined to have it grow. For shoots I proceeded to put in extensions just so my hair would do something. In my head it looked better if I had more hair so it would curl, fall in the right spot on my shoulders, just something! But last month I finally broke – it was time for a trim. I sat down in Brian’s chair at PARLOUR NOUVEAU cringing at the sight of the scissors. Then he gave me the news I knew was coming – we’re going to have to cut a few inches. In my head I just thought, okay, I’ll be a bun and top knot person for the winter and it will be fine. But Brian had other plans. He took a diffuser and a wand to my hair and I liked my hair again for the first time in a year. I now understood the importance of a really good haircut, and the freedom of no extensions! I may not style it as good as he does, that’s why I had him do it for all of these photos by ANGELA ZION.
Also, about this outfit! These sleeves. Let’s talk about these sleeves. I love this ASAL SWEATER for fall and it also comes in black. It’s super cozy and soft. I paired it with these CITIZENS OF HUMANITY jeans that my husband called his favorite that I’ve bought. These are the Rocket style and I have them in three different washes. My shoes are GOLDEN GOOSE and my bag is the MARMONT style from GUCCI. I just got these sunglasses by KREWE DU OPTIC and I’ve linked the same style in a different color. My exact style is the Conti in Interstellar 24k. Shop my full look at the bottom of my post!
