It’s hot! I have thick hair and in hot weather, it just gets gross and uncomfortable. I’ve been growing tired of my ombre, too. So a couple of weeks ago I decided to chop it all off for a LOB (long bob). I also asked for some dimension, color-wise, and we decided to go with a partial balayage. I love how it turned out!
I showed my stylist these photos of Alexa Chung, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Ellie Kemper from season nine of The Office, and obvs asked for him to tweak it and make it suitable for my face shape.
It’s so freeing to have short hair again. My showers are shorter and I use less hair product, although I’m still getting the hang of styling it (I already burned myself with my curling iron). I’ve already fallen in love with Bumble & Bumble’s Surf line. Sea salt sprays never worked on my long hair, but the Surf Spray works wonders on my new, shorter hair! I plan on repurchasing the Shampoo, Conditioner, and Surf Spray in full sizes.
On days when I don’t use my curling iron, I’ll spray Surf Spray in my hair after getting out of the shower and put it up in a bun after about an hour. When I take it down later in the day, I get nice beachy waves an Asian girl dreams of!
I love my LOB! Do you go shorter for the summer?
