Share-A-Haircut this August

*Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. Compensation was received and all opinions are my own. It's that time again!  Heading back to school means we are teaming up with Hair Cuttery again this year to Share-A-Haircut this August. Yes, the girls are already getting ready for back to school. I totally ordered all their school supplies off Amazon this year.  No more fighting in the back to school aisle this year!  Not this time. We did it last year and we are back at it because honestly who can resist taking part in the 17th year of this campaign?  Did you know that 55,000 haircuts were donated to victims of domestic violence by Hair Cuttery this past spring? Yes, ma'am!   Seriously, when did she get this big? Now Hair Cuttery is giving free haircuts to … [Read more...]

Share-A-Haircut for Back to School

August means our thoughts momentarily turn away from the summer fun and think, "Back to school!"  Buying new clothes, school supplies and for many a hair cut is needed.  I know it is true in my house.  We like to start the year off fresh and newly trimmed locks gives us that feeling when compiled with our new boxes of crayons and backpacks. I'm so excited to be teaming up with Hair Cuttery again to help them celebrate 2015 being their 16th anniversary of the Share-A-Haircut program. How does it work?  Simply put, every child 18 and under who comes in between August 1-15 who purchases a haircut at one of Hair Cuttery's almost 900 salons, like my Fifth Element did, will have one FREE haircut certificate donated to an underprivileged child in their own community. I love that last … [Read more...]

Share a Look. Share a Haircut.

There was a time when I wore a lot of black and it was totally a depiction of what was going on inside was showing on the outside.  I changed my hair color a lot and never felt comfortable in my own skin.  I didn't feel confident in anything and so when someone started telling me what to wear and especially how I should never wear my hair, I didn't even blink. That's right.  The classic pony tail was never allowed to happen on my head.  Always down.  Never up.  It was a sure sign of subliminal defiance when I broke things off and wore a bun in my hair one spring day.  Years later, while the memories are still there they don't hold value or sway like they once did.  I revel in black and how powerful I feel when I wear it.  Or whatever I want on any day.  And that includes how I do my … [Read more...]

#MyHCLook

This time of year I am always desperate for a hair cut (anyone else have hair that grows super fast in the fall?) and I'm short on time.  Between all the activities the three girls have with school and outside of that and work and life during the holiday season the last thing I want to do is spend a few hours in my stylist's chair. Then last week I decided enough was enough.  My hair was too long and I needed a cut STAT.  I stopped into one of the many Hair Cuttery's located in my town.  I haven't visited one since I was in college and I'm always a bit shy on switching things up but I was a woman in need. BEFORE #MyHCLook I never actually style my long angled-bob hairstyle before a hair cut.  Does anyone go through all that trouble? After I checked into the salon as a walk-in I … [Read more...]
