I’m the type of girl who likes to put her best face forward, so when I’m at work or going out, I always put on makeup. Eyeliner and lip gloss are my absolute minimum. In fact, the worse I feel, the more I try to wear a cute outfit and put on makeup to boost my spirits.
Even though I take pride in my looks though, I don’t like for my looks to identify who I am, which is why I’ve cut my hair super-short twice in the last two years. I love the knowledge that, despite the fact that I’ve had long, thick hair my entire life, I can cut it all off and still feel and look beautiful. I had very short hair when I met my fiance and we just celebrated our two year anniversary the day before Easter. When I spent two years going to salons and spending a small fortune on products to keep my hair healthy and strong while growing it out, my fiance loved every stage of my hair, from the short faux-hawk I sported when he met me to the bob I wore in the interim, to the long, naturally wavy locks that flowed past my shoulders once it grew out.
When I had my first daughter this past November, I loved my long hair, but when I went back to work from maternity leave, I had all of my hair cut off all over again. I guess a faux-hawk isn’t exactly the traditional “mom haircut,” but then again, I’m not the traditional mom. Either way, it doesn’t keep my five month old from grabbing handfuls every time I blow kisses on her belly. :)
With my hair being such a source of liberation for me, I like to keep it healthy and gorgeous, and Kerastase products are costly but completely worth every penny that I splurge on it with. Anything that helps a woman feel great about herself, in my opinion, is well worth the money!
