3 Hairstyles for Summer

My mom grew up with short hair and knew little to nothing about styling long hair. So, for my tenth birthday I asked for a lesson on braiding. At the time I still went to my original hairstylist Tracy, who had given me my very first haircut. She was more than happy to grant my birthday wish.

Mastering basic braids – French braid, Dutch braid, fishtail braid – served me well at numerous slumber parties and school dances throughout my youth. I enjoyed the big, chunky braids of my friends with full, thick hair. I was even more fascinated with the braids of my friends whose moms had let them get blonde highlights. But my hair is fine, brown, and somewhat boring. I never loved braids on me.

Fast forward to a few weeks ago… I partnered with Salon Dm3 in Athens, GA and my friend and stylist of six years, Catie McWhirter, to undergo a summer hair transformation. I lost some length and bulk and got some fun, warm-weather highlights. Lastly, I learned three of the easiest hairstyles for summer – no braiding required!

Photo Shoot Preview

I’ve been so excited about my recent photo shoot with Angie Webb of Suburbanite Photography. Angie and I had the opportunity to shoot on location at Osteria Mattone, a restaurant combining the casual spirit of an osteria with the more formal dining of a trattoria. I can’t resist a quick post to share a sneak peek inside the shoot. Today, Angie shared this preview image on the Suburbanite Photography Facebook page:
