Check out how almost professional I look today. Miss Sixty dress I found on sale for $79 and Michael Kors maryjanes.



So I went to Muse Hair Salon & Spa this past Saturday to get my hair straightened. My stylist was a nice lady named Kazue who assessed my hair to be puffy with a tighter wave at the back of my head with straighter strands at the front.

Psst! I’m getting my hair straightened today. These are the before pictures.

This is my hair all natural. Just wash and air dried. I didn’t apply any product. In terms of styling I only ran a brush through it this morning.

My hair is naturally wavy and gets dry easily. I’m always on the lookout for the next great hair product to make this bird’s nest a little more manageable. I’ve been flat ironing my hair a lot this past year except this summer when I’ve been putting it up instead. Anything to make it less ugly.

Stay tuned for the after pictures.
