I have been in love with the Ombre look for quite a while… For at least six months I have debated about taking the plunge and going Ombre! I have never been one to be very experimental with my hair. When I do get a cut, it’s usually “just a few inches”. I have actually said to my stylist, “please cut the least amount you can for it to look healthy.” My stylist by the way, is also my fabulous sister-in-law, Kelly Murphy, who own Bangs of Boston in the North End!  She is the best and I highly recommend her!

Anyways, I think I had a bad experience when I was pregnant with my first child and I basically cut all my hair off! Then, when reading my first pregnancy book it said right there in black and white, NEVER make big decisions like cutting your hair when you are pregnant. AND sure enough, a month later I hated my hair… and hated it for the next year! So….

This past September I started debating again about my hair (I know, really important, blah blah blah)! I got a little crazy and had Kelly put some extensions in for thickness, along with some highlights. I’m probably the only person I know in her mid-thirties that has never really used color! I don’t know if I should be proud of this, or whether its a little sad!!

But back to my love affair with Ombre! I finally took the plunge on Monday and I am hooked! Love it… Thank you Kelly!!!!

Here is my before shot….


And the after shots!!






If you are in Boston, go visit Kelly at Bangs of Boston!

Current Beauty Routine

I always think the best beauty accessory for summer is great skin! So I pay extra attention during these warm months to making sure my skin is clean and moisturized every day!! Don’t forget the sunscreen, it’s huge in protecting your skin! I like having a moisturizer that contains sunscreen, so that I have one less step in the morning. I also make sure that if I do wear makeup, I take it off before heading to bed. So here are the products I personally use… And I don’t think you have to spend a lot either! Splurge on what’s important to you (my eye cream for instance), and save where you can!!!
