No Cuts, All Glory.

I admit it. I broke a cardinal beauty rule: don’t cut your hair before a big event. I broke another one too - at the same time – don’t pick this time to try a new stylist as well!

Before heading out on a business trip to NYC, I decided I couldn’t stand another day with my unkempt, desperately-in-need-of-a-trim hair. So, I went to a new stylist. And it was fine. It’s not that I got a bad cut or anything. In fact, I liked it.

But when I had very little in time in NYC to spend on coiffing my ‘do, it became apparent that my go-to tricks weren’t working with my new cut. The 10 minutes I set aside for hairstyling, quickly turned into 45, which made me scramble to get out the door on time. Not so fun.

So, learn from my mistakes… you need at least a week with a new cut before you go to any major event to get used to it and to learn how to style it properly.

What beauty rules have you broken?

  1. I think your hair looks fantastic but I totally know what you mean -- I do this all the time. My most recent impulsive cut was getting bangs in the summer. This is totally a fall look! Bike riding, swimming, golfing and tennis playing do not work with bangs! I've learned the best thing you can do when you're in a hair rut and need a quick fix is to go for a blow-dry -- you get good hair for days!

  2. Hmmm...I don't have any tried and true "beauty routines" but know that it's always a good idea to NOT mess with a good thing. What's that expression""If it ain't broke, don't fix it?!" ;)

    It's not that I didn't like the haircut..I just needed a week or so to figure out how to STYLE it! :)

    I totally agree about a blowout. I always opt for that before a big event.

    Generally speaking a good rule of thumb to follow! Although, sometimes we have to take risks to change things up.
