My Swing Bob Haircut

 I’m FINALLY getting around to talking about my swing bob haircut. Of all the emails I get, my hair is the one I get the most questions about.

Let me first say I’m flattered that you ask about my hair but I’m like most of us, I wish I could wear it a different way. I’d love to let it grow out but when I do, it starts to look thin.

So I stick pretty close to this cut. I just got a cut and color and so it’s a little shorter than what I like but my hair grows fast. I do back tease the back of my hair with this brush. Yes, I sometimes get carried away and it’s too big. :-)

Here are answers to your questions.

I was given the Color Wow to try and it has made a huge difference on softening my hair. It’s for color treated hair. I use a tiny drop and put it on my wet hair and then blow dry.

I also use a flat iron to straighten and get rid of the frizz.

Here are some pictures I took on two different occasions.

Want To Add Volume To Your Hair?

It’s no secret, I like a little volume when it comes to my hair. I know it’s because I grew up in the 80’s and although my hair is not nearly as big as it use to be, I still like volume.

One of my favorite root lifters is Aquage Uplifting Foam. I use this while my hair is still wet and apply it to the roots of my hair and then blow dry and style.

Want to Add Volume To Your Hair?

Recently, I ran out of Aquage and forgot to order more so I decided to try a product from L’Oreal that I bought at the grocery store. It’s called, BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray and it costs around $5,00.

Want to Add Volume To Your Hair?

This product is used after your hair is dry. I flat iron my hair and then add this product to the roots. I only use it in the back, not on the sides of my hair.

I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised. It worked well and definitely gave my hair volume. It only takes a small amount so don’t overdo it!

It gets great reviews but the only negative is the smell. It bothers some people but it doesn’t bother me, it goes away quickly.

Have you tried L’Oreal BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray? Do you use a root lifter to help add volume?

3 Beauty Products For Women Over 40

3 Beauty Products for Women Over 40

Today I wanted to share 3 Beauty Products For Women Over 40, I’m using and why I like them. All of these products, I received as samples in my Birchbox over the last year. I tried them, loved them, and then ordered them. (Of course you don’t have to be over 40 to use them but they are good for our age.)

These are old news, but I still love my beauty blender. I have an expensive foundation brush, but I always go back to my beauty blender.

3 Beauty Products For Women Over 40

It blends your foundation into your skin in a perfect amount giving you a flawless finish. For maturing skin this is important!

You wet and wring the egg shaped applicator out (I didn’t do this when I used it the first time and then I read the directions) then use a small stippling motion to apply your foundation.

This product I received in my January Birchbox. I have used other brands of dry shampoo and didn’t like them. I tried Klorane and loved it.

3 Beauty Products For Women Over 40

I use a lot of product in my hair so I usually wash it everyday. But with this dry shampoo, I can skip days.

  • It cleans hair without water in 2 minutes.
  • Extends life between shampoos.
  • Ideal for on-the-go
  • Adds volume and texture
  • Received Allure’s Best of Beauty Award

I was told last year to use Benefit’s POREfessional under my eyes to help fill in wrinkles. I tried it and I loved the way it felt on my skin.

I recently realized you can use this as an all over primer for your face before applying makeup. I have to admit, I’m a little addicted to this stuff.

It feels amazing on my skin. I use it as an eye and face primer. The silky, oil-free formula diffuses pores and fine lines for an “airbrushed” finish.

Okay, so these are some products I’m using right now and loving!

I’m looking ahead to March and working on some posts. Is there anything you would like for me to write about? I love to hear from you!

Beauty For the Heart~~I’ve shared with you all recently that I’m studying Experiencing God by Henry Blackaby. It’s such a great study.

This week I’ve been reminded that God loves us deeply and profoundly. He loves us and has given us guidelines for living so we will not miss the full dimensions of the love relationship.

“For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments. And his commandments are not burdensome.” 1 John 5:3

Have a blessed day!

Spring 2014 Hairstyle Trends

I always love to look at hairstyle trends. Not that I’m going to do anything drastic but I like to see what trends are coming our way. There are some crazy ones but here are the Spring 2014 Hairstyle Trends that I like.

2014 Hair Style Trends

The pixie cut seems to still be a hot trend. I love it but I can’t imagine having my hair this short. These women wear it well.

Spring 2014 Hairstyle Trends
The bob haircut still seems to be showing up everywhere. I love the asymmetrical bob and the wavy bob. Both of these styles would look great on women over 40.

Spring 2014 Hairstyle Trends

The deep side part is very trendy. I love this look and it has a softening effect on women over 40 so I think this is a great style.

Spring 2014 Hairstyle Trends

Loose waves are popular and are perfect if you have longer hair.

Spring 2014 Hairstyle Trends

Other trends are the very low pony tail, braids, stick straight hair, soft up dos and the greasy look (Ugh!).

A change of seasons always seems to make me want to change my hair. Are you in the mood for a change with your hair?

My Favorite Hair Care Products

My Favorite Hair Care Products

Yesterday, I shared my angled bob haircut so today I’m sharing my favorite hair care products. I do change my hair care products at times but these are the ones I’m using right now.

I have straight fine hair but I have a lot of it. Because I color treat my hair and use a blow dryer and flat iron, I struggle with dry over-treated hair.

I use Paul Mitchell Thicken Up®STYLING LIQUID. This product makes thin strands look and feel thicker without a heavy product feel.

My Favorite Hair Care Products

I also use Aquage Uplifting Foam. If you like volume this will give it to you. You spray Aquage at the root area for maximum volume and lift. I only use this on the back of my hair.

My Favorite Hair Care Products

I’ve recently started using Macadamia Healing Oil Spray and I’m in love with it!

My Favorite Hair Care Products

Here’s what it helps with~

  • Provides intense nourishment
  • Long lasting tangle + frizz-free finish
  • Amazing shine and manageability
  • Instantaneous absorption
  • Light-weight, non-greasy feel
  • Extends color treatment life
  • Natural UV protection

You can use this on dry or wet hair. I use a small amount before blow drying my hair and it has really helped! My hair feels and looks healthier.

Have you tried any of these products? What do you use on your hair? I’d love to know!

Beauty For the Heart~~I love this verse! “The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.” Psalm 34:18

Have a blessed day!

The Angled Bob Haircut

One of the emails I get quite often is about my hair. What do you call your cut? Could you show us the back? Well, I’m finally getting around to sharing my angled bob haircut.

I guess I’m like most women, I don’t love my hair. I wish I could wear it longer but it starts to look stringy when it gets too long.

But for those of you wanting to see different views of my hair, here you go!

The Angled Bob Haircut

The back is stacked with some layering.

The Angled Bob Haircut

This is the right side. I wear my bangs side swept so they’re cut at an angle.

The Angled Bob Haircut

This is the left side. I generally keep this side pulled behind my ear.

Another question I get a lot is what products do you use in your hair? So stop back by tomorrow and I’ll share what I’m using right now.

Why do we always want the hair that we don’t have? I wish I had long hair with curls!

Beauty For the Heart~~But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:31

Have a blessed day!
