Most people assume that, me being an assistant hairdresser, I am really good at styling my own hair. While I probably have more practice than the average joe with a round brush, that doesn’t mean that I don’t get the thing stuck and briefly contemplate where my closest pair of scissors are. I absolutely love making hair full, shiny, beautiful, and curled. I also don’t have the time to do that every day; or even every time that I shampoo (let’s be honest, it’s like twice a week). So for those who like to be a little more ‘on trend,’ we have #TheNewGrungeScene. It’s merely just a more modern way of that relaxed, rebel look we all fell for in the 90’s.
After making a somewhat (entirely) rational, Pinterest-inspired chop to my fairly long locks, I was left with the reality that it would be quite a while to achieve the length and volume I saw get swept away from the salon floor. I'm sure I'm not the only one whose hair seems to grow at a snails pace no matter how many prenatals or Biotin I take! And I knew it would be light years before I was able to fishtail and sock bun like I used to. Something had to happen.
