Salvaging New Do

So, last night I was headed to Bdubs (Buffalo Wild Wings) to watch the UFC fight.. And, needless to say, my hairstyle that I had done nothing with all day needed some revisions, so here is what I came up with:

Style: Curly, straight, half up
Time: 20-25 minutes.

Ok, I know this style looks simple enough, but since I had no real idea what I wanted to do it took me a while to play with various things with my hair to get something I half way liked. Especially since I was starting with already curly hair and had worn it that way all day.

I brushed out the curls to make them less "plastic/hard" then applied some molding puddy (which I still have to figure out how to use best), then added a little mouse to help the curls.

The top was pulled back in 5 sections, the top middle, then the bangs actually are pinned in 3 sections overlapping, and the opposite side of my bangs is pinned differently as well.

Not my favorite hairstyle, but I enjoyed the different feel it had!

Highlight Dos

My favorite thing about highlights is the dynamic feel it gives a hair style. I enjoy that I can do the same hairstyle I have done before, but because of the highlights I am able to accent something different, plus you can see all the directions my hair goes in any given hair style.

Style: Curly with a bangs poof.
Time: 5-10 minutes (depending mostly on how long it takes you to scrunch it.

New Hair!

I know I have been MIA for a while, but I'm back with a sizzling new hair style!

You can't really tell in the first picture the colors, at least the vibrance of the color.. So, the second picture is a good display of the color vibrancy.

Salon Verde in Harrisonburg is where I got "my hair did" and I loove it! Clearly the color is a new shade of red and some blond highlights... (for a FANTASTIC price I might add) and highlights that will become more predominant as the summer goes :) ... and maybe with a little help later on ;) Also, I had more shape added to the cut and some thinning out cause it was starting to look a little poof ball ish!

Designline Curl Lock

I like this game. My roomie gave me some hair product to try!

While my hair does not look it completely in the picture, my hair is mostly dry... And, the best part is the next morning I had very little upkeep to revitalize my bedhead curls to daytime curls!

I like the smell of this cream, and I like that it can be applied to damp or dry hair!

Surprisingly an A+ curl cream! I would clue you into the cost, but I am not sure, I would guess totally blindly at $15ish. But, I am a fan of this product.

Dry Shampoo!

This is what waterless shampoo from Tresemme looks like after you spray it on... Very weird.
You let it sit for 3-4 minutes then brush it out and "go".

I guess it worked fairly well... 
I mean my hair didn't look greasy which definitely is a plus! However, I was not a fan of the feeling cause it definitely left a heavy feeling on my hair and scalp. 
Although, in a running late pinch. This will come in handy!.. I have yet to try it on curly hair though 
(how would I even brush that out?... Fro, that's how)

Overall rating B+

Cute hair is hard work!.. But better then walking out of the house looking like a crazy person! haha

Style: Half up and straight.. with a slight twist to hold my bangs and hair in place!
Time: 15-17 minutes, it took a while to control that funky fro thing I had going on!

Straight Fro Mess

I know I look upset possibly in this picture.. but I promise I was not.. What I was attempting to show was the lack of definition my hair now has due to the edges deciding to split a little bit, plus the fact that my hair is crazy thick and has grown out a few months now.

PLUS.. it snowed today ( >.< ) which means the air was dryer than usual and my hair decided today would be a fun day to fly away... Gah!

So, I straightened it this morning before church, and since the fly aways were literally out of control (I should take a picture next time) I had to pin down half of my hair. I am talking straightened fro mess!.. Crazy!

Due to the tackling time this hair do took an abnormally long time with 15-18 minutes.

I have a few more product reviews to do this week too!
