What is the Best Hair Length for You?
I currently have highlighted medium length hair. It is wavy and a little on the drier side due to a decade of highlighting. My hair is currently thick as well after years of caring for it. I used to have stringy, thin and damaged hair. So I’ve had different hairstyles throughout the years. After graduating college, I began my “big girl” job search. I studied pre-law and got hired at a mid-size law firm that is pretty well known in the area. This was a conservative law firm and noticed the women had shorter hair. I wanted to look the part so I decided to dye my hair back to my natural hair color and chipped it all off. That was in 2018. As you can see, the year prior that hair style, I had long and highlighted hair. This has always been my preferred look. I love having long hair because it makes me feel feminine and having highlights makes me feel like a bronzed goddess (lol). The lighter hair contrast well with my olive skin tone. As you can tell, I am back to my highlighted hair. I went back about a year later after cutting and dying it brown. Having short and brown hair just “isn’t me”. My current hair is medium length. I am still trying to grow it longer, but with regular trim, it just doesn’t seem possible. Regular trim keeps my hair thick and prevents damage. My current employer (still working at a law firm) doesn’t seem to mind my highlighted hair. I feel grateful that I didn’t have to “conform” ha. So what is the best hair length for you? I say the best hair length is the one that YOU prefer and you feel best in. Granted, with my profession, the long bob with my natural hair color is probably the best option, but I don’t feel best in it. So I wear my hair how I prefer it and you should too.

Secrets to Make Your Curls Last Longer👩🦱👩🦱👩🦱
Everyone loves those beautiful, flawless, bouncy curls. But do you know what's even better? Beautiful, flawless, curly hair that lasts for severall day. I have a long bob and i think straight hair is a little lifeless foe me. So I did find some tips and tricks on how to make my curl last days! 1. Start in the shower The perfect curl starts from the very beginning—the shower. Skip the conditioner when washing your hair, as this can sometimes make the hair too soft and slippery, leading to curls falling out faster. The key to curls that last longer is to have enough grit and texture to the hair to hold those curls in place. 2. Don’t wash your hair right before curling it Although we all love the feeling of fresh, clean hair, curls tend to hold better in dirtier hair. If you’re in between washes and are worried about your hair looking oily, try using some dry shampoo at the roots, to help soak up any extra oil. 3. Prep your hair Before beginning to curl your hair, apply a thickening mousse to your hair. Since hair mousse contains alcohol it will remove some of the moisture from your hair, which further enhances the hair's grit and hold. 4. Use the right hair products You can use heat protectant on your hair before heat styling to avoid damage. Depending on what works with your hair, apply a tiny bit of mousse prior to drying your hair. Or, spray a bit of hairspray before, during and after curling. This will give your hair a rougher texture which will help prolong the lifespan of your curls. Don't hold the hairspray too close to your hair as this will make your curls crunchy and heavy. 5. Cool Them Down One of the most effective tricks on how to get your curls to stay is to let the curl cool down and set before letting it go. 6. Leave The Curls Tight Once your curls have cooled down, unclip them, then toss your head back and gently shake the curls out. Rake your fingers through your hair to gently break up the curls, but be sure to leave the curls a little tighter than you actually want them.

Long hair versus short
Ok I say the style on the right is “short” because to me it is. I’ve had my hair long like the picture on the left for 15 years, and I NEVER once considered cutting it until last year. I just felt tired of my hair, the length, the look. It had been over a decade of the same length and it was time for a change. So I chopped a couple inches off and didn’t go into a panic like I thought I would. And I actually kind of liked it! It was definitely different getting used to shorter hair, from washing to drying and styling it, it was all a new learning curve. IFor the time being I think I’ll stick with the shorter hairdo. It’s easy and takes less time to style which I greatly appreciate when I have to get up early and rush out of the house. but when I see this picture of my long hair I still have times where I miss it so much. Maybe in the future I’ll grow it out again, but that’s the nice thing about hair- it grows!
This blow-dryer will change your life!
It definitely changed mine!! For most of us blow-dryers are a styling tool we use daily, so it is so important to find one that suits you. Having finer hair, I desperately needed a hairdryer that dried my hair efficiently and also allowed me to achieve some root lift with a smooth finish. I started using the GHD Air Dryer, after I tried it in a salon that I worked in. Firstly, I loved how light it felt in my hands and it seemed to dry my hair twice as quick, as normal, giving it a smooth, soft finish. Since using this blow-dryer my hair has been a lot healthier, it holds its style better and I seem to get a nicer finish to the ends of my hair. I normally prepare my hair using Milkshake Incredible Milk, which has some AMAZING benefits for your hair, including heat protector, UV Protection, volume and body. https://www.ghdhair.com/hair-dryers/ghd-air The main benefits are that it has a professional strength motor and patented removable air filter delivering high pressure air flow for fast drying, and advanced iconic technology giving you a smooth, salon worthy finish. It has temperature and power controls allowing you to control the speed and temperature of the dryer, it also has a cool shot button which you can use to set your style into place at the end. Top Tips: - Keep the blow-dryer on a medium speed and medium heat for a controlled blow-dry. - Always have the nozzle facing down the hair, this will ensure a smooth finish. - Use a paddle brush when drying for a smooth finish with some root lift. - USE HEAT PROTECTOR! I have had this dryer for 4 years now and I wouldn’t be without it!!

Medium vs. long? I cannot decided. Help!
A few years ago, I decided to let my natural hair grow and stop relaxing it. I have thick, 4C hair so I went from braids and twists to wigs. Wigs are just so much easier to me. But with that ease came a dilemma: Which wig length is best for me? For transparency, I am not going to bringing my natural hair into the conversation because I just want it to be healthy. The dilemma Long hair: I have to admit that my heart leans toward longer — mostly synthetic — wigs because I just love them. I love being about to do different things with them. Also, long hair makes me feel more feminine. I also always feel like I am getting more bang for my bucks. And if a long wig starts tangling at the ends, then I can make it into a medium wig. 1 wig, 2 looks. (Wig texture: Smooth, but not artificially silky. Loose curls toward the ends. Can get tangled over time. I purchased it from a local wig supply about 2-3 years ago and can’t remember the name of this unit.) Medium hair: It might just be this #Outre - Shawni[products]#[FourStars] wig, but I love the looser curls and the length. It framed my oval face well and made me feel like a queen. I had always thought that I was a long wig always type, but this particular wig changed my mind. So much so that I was thinking of getting backups in different colors. (Wig texture: Smooth with loose waves.) My verdict: I did a previous post about how oval faces can pretty much rock any hairstyle/cut and I think that is why I am so unsure. I love most long-haired wigs on me. (I just really like that Shawni on me, too.) But with the convenience of wigs, if I don’t have to choose, then why should I? 🤷🏾♀️ Which do you think works better?

my hair length journey! (17 inches later)
which hair length is best for me? I think this is a question with a lot of right answers! I have had long hair my entire life. I always believed that my face looked best with hair down my back. I don’t remember what caused that narrative, but my beauty and self esteem was definitely braided into the length of my hair. I think it was seen as a sign of femininity, health, and beauty in my family. after I had my daughter last year, my hair grew about 6 inches in a couple months. I think it was the surge of hormones my body was receiving. suddenly my hair was past my back! I would sit on it all the time, even in a ponytail. I found myself wondering ‘what if I cut it all off?’ this thought had NEVER occurred to me, but suddenly I couldn’t shake it. I started googling shorter hairstyles and looking for inspiration on pinterest. soon, I had an appointment booked. 17 (donated) inches later, I had the shortest hair I’ve ever seen myself with. and surprisingly—I LOVED it. no tears, no great emotions, just, “oh. it looks great!” I was surprised how much younger I looked, and how much friendlier and approachable it made me seem. I had always associated long hair with youth, but something about this length really freshened up my look. styling and washing is SO much easier now. I’m still learning what styles look best with this new haircut, but I’m enjoying the journey so much. if you’re thinking of changing your hair length I suggest, 1. researching looks 2. talking to your hair stylist 3. trusting the process remember, hair grows back! so have fun!!
