So I was getting the short hair itch (again) and decided to go for it and try a haircut I have been eyeing for like 3 years:
Yes, the long angled bob.
The reason I have never gone for it in the past is that I have super frizz ball hair that gets uber poofy when short, humid, or just left el natural. My case in point, from this post:
And that is with like 7 extra inches weighing it down, so that is why I decided to try a Brazilian Blow Out in conjunction with my new cut. I was a little nervous after reading some horror stories online but after a re-assuring informal facebook poll I decided to go for it.
So here is a picture of my hair this morning:
I then headed to Halo Salon to meet with the lovely Veronica.
Yup, this is my hair dresser and she is amazing!! Not to mention photogenic.
Anyways, so we started with the cut she fully dried it and flat ironed it. Then washed it again and applied the chemicals (ewww but I had to try it), V applied it section by section and then let me sit for 5 min or so. My scalp was a little warm and tingly that was about it. Then she blew it dry and flat ironed it (again), except this time my hair turned into pure silk. I kid you not. It is glorious!
The cut turned out perfect, I am not sure it is “the best” look on me personally but I am glad I tried it and am totally happy with the results. The cut is utterly perfect thanks to V’s total OCD ways, I highly recommend her (obvi’s).
If you are local and want to try the blow out thing, V said if you call and mention igoyougo she will give you my special price of $100 buckaroos! (instead of the usual $175)
