Hair inspiration

HomeSamantha WetterholmComment

So I’m getting my hair cut on December 28th right before I leave for Hawaii. I’ve been needing a trim for a while but I think I want to do something a little more drastic. I’ve read that you shouldn’t get a style that requires daily maintenance when you’re pregnant and about to have a baby, so I think I’ll go with a cut that can be styled when I want to take the time and drawn back into a pony tail when I don’t. 

My hair is very long right now and completely unmanageable. Between the pregnancy hormones, the thickness, and the length, all I can do is throw it up and out of my face. I want a style that can be worn down comfortably but works with my natural texture {wavy/curly}.

These beautiful ladies are my hair inspiration.

I want to go with a below-the-shoulder length with long layers that can be styled with either subtle waves or soft curls. I also want swooping bangs that can be hidden in the rest of the cut or blown out in front to look more like traditional side-swept bangs. While this won’t be the most drastic cut of my life, I definitely want a shorter style with more bounce. I will definitely need my hair thinned out as well. I cannot wait for my appointment! What do you think about these looks?

Stay tuned on Instagram and Facebook for pictures of my new style!
