Gimme Pretty

Do you ever feel gross and ugly? I've been needing a haircut and some good hair products. Truth? I've been using Pantene, Vo5, Aussie, and other shampoos and conditioners that were either really cheap or free (for real free after coupon). I'm also sick of my lipsticks.

I took the day off from work and decided to take care of myself today. I found a stylist close to home at Carlton Hair and she was SO COOL. I got some hair products, a black cocktail dress, and some makeup. YAY for pampering days!

MAC Lipglass in PRRR


MAC Lipstick in Dubonnet (she's so gorgeous)


Back of hair. I LOVE how she took off so much of the weight. She cut about 6 inches off.

The rest of my stash: Joico shampoo and conditioner with some bonus reconstructors (the store I went to didn't carry Kerastase!), Bumble and Bumble thickening hairspray, and Morrocan hydrating mask. Thanks to the Fashion and Beauty Nesties for all your great recs and review!

Looks great! I love that gloss and let me know how you like the mask. I've been thinking about trying morrocan oil but the mask sounds like a good alternative.

Yay for a day of pampering, you totally deserve it! Love the haircut!

Your hair looks like pure hotness!

BTW, I <3 Mac lipglosses. One that seems to get a lot of compliments is the Plushglass in Ample Pink (particularly when I layer it over another lipglass color like Enchantress or Oh Baby). Since we have roughly similar skin tones, I thought I'd pass that along :)

But truly, when I want to pump up shine, I use some cheap drug store bubble gum scented lipgloss that 11 year old girls use. $3 and it's all the shine you can handle.

Hey, I still use Pantene Pro V . . . it's like $7 for a ginormous bottle at Costco :) I love the lipgloss color! I love your haircut too, but I know I'll never be able to style it that nicely by myself.
