Happy Tuesday guys! We are frantically finishing packing as we head to Europe tonight! Ahhh! I wanted to do a post talking more about the chop to the long bob! I’m really moody with my hair. One week I want it long, the next I want it short, then I want it blonde, then I’m back to dark. I love that there are so many options to completely change your look that aren’t permanent (cough cough not like my stupid lower back tattoo I got when I was 18 and finally got removed this year!). I have had extensions for a while now! I get them changed every 3-4 months or so. It was about a week before my next appointment when I woke up feeling super impulsive and texted me hairdresser: “Are you going to be pissed if I chop…” Luckily she knows how impulsive I am and didn’t bat an eye so I grabbed some scissors, not even hair scissors just regular old scissors and chopped away! I actually really love doing hair! I used to cut my cousins and my friends hair in high school and they would always have me style it for them, so it wasn’t too out of the ordinary for me to get crazy with the scissors!

I wanted my lob (long bob) to be have a really blunt line to help it feel thick. When you texture up into your hair it makes it easier to style but it doesn’t give it that thickness on the bottom. At least with my hair. I was planning on only keeping it short for the week until my new hair came, but I love it shorter! I feel fresher, and a little sassier 😉 It was just such a good change I decided to keep the lob.

The key to pulling of a lob is volume, and even if you don’t have naturally thick hair you can still get that bombshell volume with the right products and styling. I have a narrow face so for me the key is volume on the sides! If you have a rounder face you want to add volume to the top to create height and the illusion of a narrow-er shape. Here are my three steps for getting max volume:

  1. One of my favorite tricks for achieving full volume is mousse, mousse, and more mousse. Instead of just applying mousse the the roots on the crown of my head, I section off my hair piece by piece while it’s wet at and apply at my roots all over especially the sides!
  2. Curls are my best friend for voluminous sides – Before styling, I always use heat-protectant. The is enriched with Flax Seed Oil and antioxidants and acts as a protective barrier. Blow-dry your hair away from your head to get the desired lift. Once it’s dry, the mousse does all of the work giving your hair full volume.
  3. Once I’ve curled my hair I apply through my ends to give more texture and a piecer look so my curls don’t all clump together. I also applied some lightly around the top of my hairline to tame my fly-aways. It’s infused with silicone so even fine hair can get full volume.

The lob is literally everywhere. Last week Selena Gomez cut hers and it looks so cute; then Cara Delevingne was next – it’s having a huge moment right now. If you are debating taking those scissors to your locks, just do it! You won’t regret it!

XX, Christine

    Your hair looks wonderful! I wish I could achieve this look, but my hair is A LOT thinner. Do you have any tips for quick hairstyles that don’t require heat? I’m a busy lady with thin frizzy hair and sometimes I just don’t have time for a blow-dryer and iron, but still would like to feel good! Thank you for taking your time to post!

    I am loving your LOB! Can you do a full post on your extensions? What kind (tape in, clip ins, bonded) and how you care for them? thank you!

    Your Hair looks so much better, I genuinely love it. I can relate to this post, I’m very moody with my hair and I like to try different styles. Shorter hair suits you better ,to your body type, now I see you not extra long hair extensions. You look gorgeous in both thou. In my opinion you look phenomenal and the dark chocolate is gorgeous too. You’re so inspiring. Xo
