How To Effortlessly Style a Pixie Cut




I don't think I've ever written a post about my short hair!  Well, maybe a once or twice, but I never really talked about WHY I opt to have a pixie cut.  I like having pixie cuts because I have fine, limp hair.  It makes me look younger and it doesn't bog my head down.  When I have longer hair, it just falls flat around my face.  

Of course, it is also important to know that having short hair has its pros and cons.  One of the biggest pros is that it's a wash-and-wear kind of style.  I can wake up and take a shower (including wash my hair), and 30 minutes later, I can just lightly blow dry it for 30 seconds and I'm out the door.  


A root spray like the Dove Root Lift Spray helps a lot in creating volume.  I simply spritz my roots (semi-dry hair) and blow dry for 30 seconds.  I also use a styling brush to create more volume.

The con is that since hair grows fast, you have to maintain the style.  I get a hair cut every 5 to 6 weeks, and my colorist colors my hair every 2 to 2.5 months.

Some people may think that having short hair is boring because it's the same style over and over again, but the girl can style pixie cuts in 3 effortless ways.  See her video below!

China Glaze Winter 2015: Cheers Collection Swatches, Review

Press sample

Hi everyone!  We're still in the middle of winter, and what better way to cheer ourselves up while waiting for spring than to enjoy some winter-inspired shades!  Today is all about China Glaze Winter 2015!  Here are the swatches of the China Glaze Winter 2015: Cheers Collection and my thoughts on them.

China Glaze Coal Hands, Warm Heart
China Glaze Coal Hands, Warm Heart




China Glaze Coal Hands, Warm Heart is a dark base with silver holos and purple micro glitters.  This is great if you want a deeper shade to coincide with the winter months, but want the bling of glitter to avoid looking too dreary.

China Glaze Son of a Nut Cracker is a beautiful coral-orange shimmer.  It has a silver sheen to it that almost looks frosty, but it's beautiful and vibrant.
