It’s been at least 5 months since I dyed my hair bright copper, and I’m still in love! You know me though…always looking to the next thing. This time around I’m committed to growing out my pixie cut to a copper bob, and I’m looking straight at Emma Stone for inspiration. Why grow it out? I want more styling options! Sure, pixie hair is fun and I love it so very much, but I’ve had it for 6 years and I miss ponytails and curling irons.
I’m about two and a half months into the regrowth phase. I’ve already had to trim my mullet and my bangs once, but I can finally tuck little bits behind my ears. Exciting! I’m totally digging the soft side bang that Emma is rocking in the first picture, so I think I’m going to keep my bangs for now while the rest of it grows out. Growing out a pixie makes it hard to keep up any semblance of a style, so having bangs makes me feel like everything is looking respectable in the interim, haha! Fake it until you make it, right?
Emma Stone nails the perfectly tousled, gently curled copper bob. I’m in serious need of some tips and tricks for how to style this look. My hair is pin straight and baby fine and last I checked, it can’t hold curl without a can of hairspray to save its life. Long haired gals – what are some of your favourite volumizing and texturizing hair products?
Also, I’m pretty sure that the only curling iron I own is the same one that I used when I was like 14, and that it’s shoved in a closet somewhere collecting dust. It might be time to start thinking about investing in some updated hair tools. From what I remember, my last curling iron was caked in hair spray from the good ol’ days of crunchy curls that didn’t budge. Anyone else dabble with those at all? Just me? I’ve got some learning to do!
Ooh this will look so fab on you! My hair has a touch of natural wave, but I am in LOVE with Bumble’s Surf Infusion for getting that messy look. It’s a beachy salt spray, but blended with nourishing oils so it’s not so drying. Though if your hair is really fine you might be okay with Surf Spray, or SachaJuan Ocean Mist.
SachaJuan Root Lift would be great for getting that volume (work it in, blow dry upside down) and I use Philip B mega Curl enhancer when I curl my hair.
My co-worker who recently chopped her straight hair swears by Philip B Maui Wowie for hold, and uses her straightening iron to curl, as that works best for her.
Thanks lady! I actually think I might have a sample bottle of Bumble’s Surf Spray hanging around somewhere…I never had a reason to use it on my pixie but it’s good to know that it works well in longer hair. Thanks for the tips on the SachaJuan and Philip B, I haven’t heard of those brands before. I will definitely check them out! xoxo
Isn’t she just SUCH a stunner? seriously. *sigh* I cut 8 inches off November ’14 and have NEVER LOOKED BACK. I used to use a straightener for my curls, and still swear by it with my bob. I would invest in a wand as well, when you get to that length.. For the life of me, I can’t figure out how to use an actual curling iron. Also, I swear by anything Kevin Murphy (seriously, a hair GOD!!!!) and his Resort Spray – smells like a vacation.
Oh man, I could stare at her for hours. Her eyes and that hair…it’s mesmerizing! Whoa! 8 inches is a ton of hair! Shorter is fun though, isn’t it? A straightener for curls? I never ever would have thought of that! I’ve heard of Kevin Murphy product before but I’ve never tried it…thanks for the tips! <3
These are some serious hair goals – this look is stunning and will look fab on you once it grows out! I use the amika texture spray and it’s amazing but I’ve just ordered some texture spray from Herbivore botanicals that I’m really pumped to try out (all natural, no chemicals, etc) so I’ll let you know how it is!
Eeeee, thanks love! I just have to be patient enough and not get bored while I’m growing it out…that’s always my problem haha. Halfway through growing it out I’ll be in the super awkward stage and dying to cut it all off again! Let me know how the Herbivore line is! I just saw some of their line at Habitat Etc. and was really curious about it. <3
