So my 7 year-old Nicholas drew a picture of us the other day. I commented on how I liked the brown hat he drew on my head.
“That’s not a hat mommy,that’s your hair! The top half is brown, and the bottom part is yellow!”
Wow. Nothing like a little reality check from a first grader.
I don’t know about the rest of ya’ll, but if I can get at least one body part clean in a day (hair washing and leg shaving is a bonus) – it’s a red banner day in my book.
Needless to say – keeping up with hair, makeup and other luxuries such as a razor or nail polish – isn’t on my radar.
So I enlisted the help of my dear friends at the amazing Ihloff Salon and Day Spa in Tulsa. They were only too excited to help a sister out. (Until Randi saw my roots. I don’t think she really believed I was in dire straits until then).
Randi says the trend in hair this spring is longer layers and a more “bohemian” look than the polished looks of last year. The look is super easy – she just used a large barrel curling iron and slightly curled my hair in big chunks. It took five minutes.
I now have a fresh updated look for spring – YAY! And it’s dummy proof for moms like me. So I want to share my good fortune.
According to Brandi from Ihloff, makeup trends are keeping your look natural, with using a pop of color either on lips or eyes. For daytime, she’s giving me a day smoky eye, using neutral colors, but a teal eyeshadow as an eyeliner which makes eyes pop. For nighttime, she suggests a bright lip – coral is the big color this spring.
Ihloff is donating a haircut/style AND a make-up application (plus the spring line of Aveda makeup!). This is valued at over $300 – and it includes their newest product – Aveda Lash Abundance Boosting Serum which gives you thicker, fuller, longer-looking lashes in just 8 weeks-and is gentle enough for everyday use.
All you have to do to enter is comment on my blog and we’ll pick a winner on Monday, March 5th!
And next time my son draws my hair like that…he’s grounded.
