This blog began in 2010 as part of the publisher’s promotional materials for my travel book, The Single Girl’s Guide to Meeting European Men. The book rose to #1 on Amazon’s Best-Sellers List within two weeks of publication, and is still selling. The blog has been expanded to cover my other pursuits.

Ready or Not

August, 26, 2014

I was feeling like a little end-of-summer change. Last weekend, I went dancing and one of the girls at the club had an adorable short haircut with a luxurious cascade of layers. So I decided to take the snip.

But once I was in the chair, I wasn’t daring enough to whack off length everywhere. So I shortened my first layer by about five inches and tapered it down to blend with my longer strands.

This gave me a lighter, breezy feel for the remaining hot days of summer, and a variety of looks.

I can swoop the new layers across my forehead. Or push them to the side, creating extra volume.

I can also brush them into my hair, spray everything in place, and erase all traces of what the scissors have been up to. We’re on the brink of September. If you feel the urge for a change, this just might just be the right time for you too!

Mollie, my trusty hairstylist, says that Kérastase Volume in Powder is essential for making sure that shorter layers stay looking good, void of a rebellious streak.
