A change in seasons makes me want to clean, cut, upgrade, discard, buy something new, and head for the trails. Summer has come to East Tennessee in February this year. The weather has been sunny with temperatures in the eighties for most of the week. I have walked many miles already, and I have “brutally” cleaned the house from top to bottom, including my wardrobe. I’ve added a new color to my closet which I will share with you later. Today it’s all about the hair! It was time to shed the long hair again. The classic chin-length bob isn’t for everyone.
Yesterday I visited with my stylist, Sam Johnson, who owns Design Studio in Johnson City, TN. When I told him I was ready for a change, we both did our research and independently came up with about the same style. Softly layered looks that give me more volume and less width work well with my face shape. I am delighted with the results.
To get the best results from hair appointments, we need to take into consideration what type of hair we have and be realistic about how much effort we want to put into styling it each day. I have fine curly/wavy hair that is getting thinner as I age. When the humidity settles in for the season, it will do what comes naturally to curly hair, no matter how much product I use. A hairstyle is the accessory we wear every day, so I want the best possible option for my shape, height, and personality. I always get dressed up a bit for my appointment so that he has an accurate picture of my style personality. I treat my stylist with respect and never show up late.
The necklace is from Chico’s. The top is from last year by Clara Sunwoo from My Fair Lady. The jeans are a couple of years old by Michael Kors from Stein Mart. The bag and shoes are also not recent purchases. I no longer purchase heels, but I have kept the ones that are most comfortable. I can still wear them for short periods.
Another update I make when the weather changes, is my skincare routine. I started keeping my No. 3 Balancing Facial Mist in the refrigerator this week. I mist my face several times a day with the refreshing cool alcohol-free revitalizing mist. I tend to get red cheeks from the increased activity and heat. This mist from the Balancing Line helps to calm the redness and reduce the breakouts I still occasionally get. I believe in the Beautycounter products and mission so much that I became a consultant.
