Hair trends you’re loving right now?
Face-framing layers and collarbone lobs are flattering and so fun for summer.
You have only 60 seconds to do your own hair before walking out the door. What do you do?
Hair claw clips have been a favorite this summer!  Half up twist/bun with a cute clip to beat the summer heat.

Listen to music and hang out with my cat.
