Split Ends

As a Mary-Kate and Ashley obsessed freak in elementary school, I tried to emulate the twins and their television personas as closely as possible. When it was declared that split ends were gross in Passport to Paris, I immediately checked my hair for breakage and insisted on getting a new haircut.

I also tried to convince my parents that I needed to go on a spring break trip to Paris to find a cute French boy. I only made it as far as Florida.

Haircut 2I was reaching my six-week due date when I was asked to participate in a campaign with Hair Cuttery. I hadn’t been to a Hair Cuttery in years as I regularly see a stylist at another salon, but I was more than pleased with my experience.

Hair Cuttery 4The salon is open late, which made it easy for me to go on a weeknight at a time that was convenient. The assistant salon leader, Kimberly, cut my hair and was extremely knowledgeable about the products.

Hair Cuttery 6I selected the style express package–it included a shampoo, chemical treatment, cut, and blow-dry. I only had a few inches taken off, but I love my new angles and feel so much more confident now that I’m free of split ends.

I also love the volume that she gave me–when I try to blow dry my hair straight myself, it ends up looking like I walked through a wind tunnel.

Haircut 3 With their extensive list of services offering everything from styling to waxing, I’ll definitely be returning to Hair Cuttery.

    My craziest cut is when I got it cut super short, since I always have my hair around shoulder-length. I like your FB page (kelly D Saver)

    I found your post through the Hair Cuttery Facebook page. I also participated in this and got my own hair cut, but I enjoyed your review – it’s nice when we can get salon worthy hair cuts for a third of the price! Cheers!

  11. I went red for a while about a year and a half ago, and would get my hair re-dyed at Aveda Salon’s school every 8 weeks because it’s cheap as can be and typically they do a great job. (After all, the students go on to work in a renowned salon that costs an arm and a leg.) Unfortunately my student-stylist was exhausted one day when I went to get my hair re-dyed. She fell asleep on her break, and left the dye on my hair for an extra 15 minutes. When my scalp started to burn, I immediately went to a supervisor and asked to be rinsed… But not soon enough. My hair turned out FUSHIA. Thank goodness I like bright color so I didn’t really mind, and red dye fades rather quickly. Otherwise we would have had a catastrophe on our hands.

    (I follow you on facebook, and love reading your posts. They’re my simple pleasure while I drink my coffee. So proud of you!)

    Once when I was younger I decided I could rock a bowl cut…NOT cute. I still get made fun of today. Oh, and when I got said bowl cut done, the lady who was cutting my hair accidentally snipped my ear! Ow. It scarred me for life. I followed you on FB, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest!

    All my worst haircuts have been due to the fact of people not understanding my hair which is very course, thick and frizzy!! The worst though was when i got a perm that was supposed to just add shape and instead added frizz and destroyed my hair!! At the moment I am in the process of growing it all out again and have to get it cut often to get rid of the dead pieces. I even have pieces at the top of my head the have totally broken off. Yep lesson learned!! I did find a great girl at my local HC , Krista and she is helping me.
