Spring will soon be here and it was time for me to lighten up...shed some heavy clothes and some heavy hair in exchange for some fresh layers and highlights to carry me into summer. I am pretty lucky to have a stylist I love close by. Courtnie is talented, fun and gets my need for months between salon visits..she actually supports it with clever cuts that last and grow out graciously.
Despite my serious lack of hairstyling skills I have a pretty fun Pinterest board called hair love...
Today I had a couple images that were sort of my inspiration for layers and lightness for spring.
I love everything about this image...LOVE the gray tank and undies, her hair colour and soft waves. Obviously I don't have that sweet bod or face but I have a small chance of growing a less full version of that hair...that is maybe I have a chance if I would stop getting my locks stuck in my jacket zipper and having to rip them out ruthlessly!
I can't do those long bangs though...they don't work well with yoga and chasing kids and gardening and every other practical aspect of my life. So I am sticking to my regular shorter side swept bangs with a fringe that Courtnie whips off. Sort of like these...
While Courtnie worked today on my hair I worked on her social media launch.
I am so proud to share her new Courtnie LaFontaine Square1 Salon facebook page and even more exciting her fabulous and quickly growing Courtnie LaFontaine Pinterst boards...ideas and inspirations for every hair type, look and style you can imagine.
Let's celebrate Courtnie with a little contest!
It's been a while friends. So all you have to do is visit her facebook page and give her a like or follow her Pinterst boards, or both for two entries! Once you have done that leave a comment letting me know and I will check up on ya. The comments area is just at the bottom of the post, it's not hard to do.
Enter away and on the weekend we will do a draw and the winner will win a $35 gift certificate to visit Courtnie at Square1 Salon. If you aren't local she will send that special winner a treat by way of a product specially picked for their hair type.
As for my final hair today...I love it. It feels fresh and healthy again and ready for spring break in Mexico. We spent so much time playing on Pinterest and chatting that I had to rush to pick up the kids and left after a quick blow dry and no fancy styling but after the mask she gave me and styling products it's so silky and light again I am thrilled to keep it simple.
All I have to offer is a silly phone selfie but you get the idea...it's layered well and shaped. Best still, it is just a quick blow dry or even an air dry ready away from being ready to fly out the door....easy, peasy Mom hair thanks to Courtnie's talented way with the scissors.
Good luck in the contest friends, enter away, your hair will thank- you!
