Helpful Links for Girls With Bobs

I’m having lots of fun playing with my shorter ‘do. I hesitated chopping my hair for so long — even when I really wanted to — because I worried it would be too hard to style and manage. But it’s so easy!

Fortunately for my lazy hair skills, the modern bob is all about messy undone texture. My daily styling routine is basically the same as my lob days, but with less hair (which means less time!). My favorite styling product right now is Joico Hair Shake, a texturizing spray with a liquid-to-powder formula that boosts volume and creates cool piecey texture with soft, flexible hold. If I don’t have time to curl or flat-iron, I work a little Dirt Texturizing Paste into the ends so they aren’t frizzy.

If you’re considering a chop, or you’ve already joined the club, here’s a handful of helpful links full of styling inspiration and helpful tutorials:

When my stylist told me she wanted to give me ‘tortoiseshell’ highlights, I nodded and pretended like I totally knew what she meant. I’m glad I trusted her; the warm blended tones work well with my light olive skin and are minimal-maintenance (which is right up my alley).

This little lady doesn’t need any of your help, thankyouverymuch.

I’ve resisted the Nordstrom Anniversary sale, but I would love to splurge on this snake embossed leather satchel. 

If you’re in a funk, Bustle rounded up ‘15 Books That Will Lift Your Spirits.’ Two of my favorites are on the list: Bridget Jones’ Diary and Where’d You Go Bernadette.

If you want something to sip on while you read, Man Repeller has ‘The Only Summer Wine Guide You Need.’

Finally, Teni’s everyday makeup tutorial featuring all drugstore products makes me want to run to Ulta for this $5 eye palette.
