Last time my @angelodavidhair haircut was for @pantene #beautifullengths but this time it was just for ME! #TressesTuesday #Hair


When an invite to 'Get Gorgeous During NYFW (New York Fashion Week)' hits my inbox and it's from my favorite New York City Salon, I am definitely ALL over it. My love for Angelo David Salon and my Fave Stylist Ivy runs deep, I met them at Getting Gorgeous 2014, and a few months later I went to the salon for a very special haircut - I donated over 13 inches of hair to Pantene Beautiful Lengths (PBL) for women with Cancer. Check out the current PBL #8or8 campaign - where you can either donate 8 inches of hair or donate $8 dollars to help the cause!

You know just how seriously this butterfly takes all cancer related charities! Stay tuned on a Special Luncheon I will be attending later this week.

I hit the Angelo David Salon in between Fashion Week Shows this year and while oddly my hair was super long (almost near my waist), I didn't have enough to donate because I was leaving it a bit longer than last time. The top two photos of the Photo Collage above are the current cut (with bangs), the two on the bottom are from 2014.

This naturally wavy with super thin hair knows better than to cut bangs in summer, so when I want bangs I do them for Fall and this year I decided it was time to re-visit bangs. I did Bangs and long graduated layers to give my hair a bit more volume.

Here is a compilation video of my hair cuts at Angelo David Salon:

MY TAKE:

I definitely trust Ivy completely and it's super nice to be able to just sit back and relax at a Salon and not have to worry in any way. I love the bangs and graduated layers, I definitely needed the refresh, and wanted to break away from always copping out with ponytails, this will force me to do something with it everyday, and I am definitely all about that right now.

I am ready to toy with color and that will be focus of my next visit!

Readers Sound Off: How do you like wearing YOUR hair? Short? Long? Somewhere in Between? Have you tried the Angelo David Salon before? Are you 'hair adventurous' or do you stick to the same style each visit?

  1. First of all, your hair looks great. Secondly, my GF likes long hair, so I haven't REALLY cut it in about 16 years. It's down to my butt!

  2. Love your new look! I like my hair long! I am going to try to be "hair adventurous" next month though when I visit my salon! I just might have to visit The Angelo David Salon the next time I'm in NY! Thanks for the recommendation!

    1. @Michelle I think I have run the gamut with hair lengths so for me it's color next. I highly recommend The Angelo David Salon - you won't leave with hair regret that's for sure!

    1. Pantene is such a great brand! They are who I go through for donating my hair. Been doing that for about 8 years now.

    2. @Once Upon There are a few programs that do this, and Pantene Great Lengths is one of the ones I use when I am ready to donate.

      @Chrystal - That is so great that you have been donating via PGL for 8 years now. Funny since they are doing the #8or8 campaign this year donate 8 inches of hair or $8 dollars! :)

  5. I prefer my hair short though I often end up with longer hair until I can justify a trip out to get it done.

  6. I had long hair for years but I recently took a risk and got it cut short. I really like it! I feel you on the bangs in summer. My hair is naturally curly and the humidity makes bangs do weird things in summer.

    1. @Pam Bangs are never good for us curlies as well as fine hair, humidity definitely makes bangs look weird during summer!

  16. I tend to wear the same hairstyle and haven't had my hair cut in several years. It is currently down to my mid back, so I have enough to donate.
