My New Cut For 2016

I have been itching for a hair change for some time now. Although I’ve been loving my wavy locks lately, I really can’t resist trying different hairstyles—especially after I saw this!

Oh, Khloe! I don't know why, but she always seems to be my hair peg! Image via instagram.com/khloekardashian.

I super loved Khloe’s new look, but what sealed the deal was when I saw Refinery29 label the “sleek and polished lob” as one of the coolest haircuts for 2016 (read it here). I also spotted a few models rocking the blunt, straight cut on some of the S/S 2016 runway shows, so I figured that now was a good time to try this look.

So I headed to my trusty stylist, Jing Monis, for a cut! This is what my hair looked like before I had anything done.

I love my messy-wavy hair, but I really was in need of a trim. I think it’s been about 3 to 4 months since my last cut, so the ends were getting quite dry already. I was scheduled to come in for a dye job also, but I opted for a powerdose treatment instead so I can rest my scalp and give my strands a hydration-boost.

And there goes my hair! After a quick discussion with Jing, we settled for a straight lob with practically zero layers.

I have to admit that it’s the first time that I actually missed the length of my hair! I’m excited for it to grow back, but I’m also excited to look for new ways to style this cut.

Here's what it looks like when roughly dried, so will definitely need to use a flat iron for a sleeker finish.

Like this! What do you think? Sleeker is better, right?

The one thing I noticed is that the shorter style took about 10 years off my face! Haha, so when I don’t wear makeup, I look like a teenager! Not a bad problem, but I’ll definitely have to put on makeup and wear something a little dressier to look more like a modern woman.

And I'm loving the challenge! New hair + new style + new me for 2016!!

  • Sometimes I show him a peg, sometimes I just let him do what he wants. If you’re going to a new stylist or don’t trust him/her completely, it’s always best to show him a photo of the look you want. This way, you’re sure that you’re envisioning the same thing :)
