New Hair


Give me a pair of scissors and a mirror and this is what happens! I chopped my mop a couple of days ago and this is the result. I'm loving how the shorter cut looks with a bit of wave. It's quick and easy to style (and scrunch!) with a wand, and also seems to give me some of that much needed volume. I also dyed it recently (more like before Christmas!) but hadn't really posted it. I was finally able to get rid of that yellowish tint, so I kind of feel like this is my "starting over" hair. Do you ever take a pair of scissors to your mane? I tend to reach for them whenever I'm having a bad hair day!

  3. OMG! I LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOOOVE IT! I can't believe you cut it yourself! Give me a pair of scissors and a mirror and I'll end up bald! Dark hair is GORGEOUS on you and the length frames your face beautifully! Love it!

  4. I'm so envious of women who have the freedom to chop their hair! My curls make it super difficult to try anything new. Bravo to you for cutting it yourself, though! I'd be absolutely terrified, although I have been known to snip a few split dried up ends that just irritated me to no end haha

    1. Aw, I have zero experience with curly hair (mine is stick straight naturally!) but I can imagine it might be more difficult to cut into a style! thanks girl <3

  6. It's funny that just today I picked up a pair of scissors just like that and cut some face framing layers. You look lovely!

  7. Aww it looks lovely- I wish I could just whack out the scissors and cut my hair!

  8. I love it! I'd never be able to cut my own hair. So many people are cutting their hair into bobs (including me!) - much easier to deal with :)

  13. I also cut my own hair :) Love this color on you! It looks so natural- very sophisticated, grown up and gorgeous.

  14. It looks amazing! I recently chopped 5 inches off my hair, and it is so freeing! I think I may even go shorter! Is that your natural colour? If not, what colour do you use?

    1. Thank you! It's professional colour, 5N (light brown) - this one. It went on top of my weird blonde shade though. This is pretty close to my natural colour... I think my natural colour is a bit more ashy though.

  15. Love the new hair! The curls look so pretty. I'd miss my hair too much if I chopped it off but I get annoyed with my hair at the same time! :)

  16. Wow Dana, shorter hair suits you so well! I'm not gutsy enough to chop my own hair off, I leave that to the pros haha. You did an amazing job :) x

  17. Your hair looks amazing! It's kind of funny how I'm reading this post when just a few minutes ago I decided to cut my hair, finished cutting and while it's air drying I come to this post. haha But you did a way better job than me. And it does feel good, new year - new hair! x

    1. Awesome!! Self hair cutting is a little refreshing, isn't it? haha.

  18. I adore you hair and the new color really suit you :) I just cut my hair yesterday and to be honest, it didn't have the result I hope. But whatever, I'll just have to wait for them to grow back.

  19. Jealous of your skills at cutting hair! I've never tried, but I'm sure it would end with disastrous results, and a trip to the salon anyway to get it fixed, haha!
    Love the hair though! Super pretty!

  25. The cut looks fantastic Dana and the colour is tres flattering! As if you did this by yourself, so talented! I never take scissors to my mane. I just wrap it up in a bun on those bad hair days then wait until a professional is available lol

    1. I am a rebel I guess! haha. I always cut my hair... or have a stylist friend do it for me haha. I don't think I've been to a salon in like 7 years. It's very easy! I guess it helps to not be afraid if you mess it up. ;p

  30. I love it! (and the colour) I trim my fringe (bangs) every couple of works and cut the rest whenever I get around to it... it's in need of losing a good few inches at the moment...wish me luck!

  31. It looks sooo good! I'm getting my hair cut tomorrow and I'm going for a shorter look as well! This makes me so excited to cut my hair now!
