My Recent Trip to the Salon (April 2012)

Hey Gals!
I got my hair done last week and I always get questions on what my hair color is or what style I get, etc. I thought it would be fun to share a few pics of my hair make over process.
 I was definitely due for a touch up with my color and cut. My roots were about 3-4 inches grown out. Not cute. I always like lots of layers so that I could have a lot of body to my hair when I style it. My hair was grown out and it was a little heavier up top so I knew I needed a cut. 

What cut do I ask for?
I love big, full, voluminous hair. My hair is thick so it tends to be pretty heavy which weighs down my hair. In order for me to have volume and add height to my crown, I need to have layers. 

I always ask to have my shortest layer start at the top of my lip. I get long trailing layers through out my hair with texturizing on the ends. I don't like my ends to be blunt and straight across so I usually ask for a "point cut". I'm not a hair expert but to me this means cutting up into the hair instead to straight across to add some texture. 

I also ask for layers around my face to frame it. 


I usually like to have a little red undertone when it comes to my hair color. I really liked the color we used last time I got it done so she decided to just touch up my roots. 

The brand of hair color she uses is by Scruples. Honestly I cant tell you the exact color she uses because she doesn't use one color. She mixes three colors together to make a custom color for me.

Here is the end result to my hair make over! All I did was straighten it and tease my roots at my crown. I took a quick picture in my car before I had to go to work. This isnt as good of quality as my regular camera but you get the point. ;)

Thought you gals might like me doing this. I get so many questions about my hair. I thought it would be fun to show the process. Let me know if you have any more questions!
What hair products do I use? 
-Paul Mitchell Tea Tree Shampoo and Conditioner 
-Pureology leave in conditioner
-Pureology Heat Protectant
-Big Sexy Hair Hair Spray
-Kenra Finishing Spray Medium Hold
