Hair Share – Pump Up the Volume in Fine Hair



Here’s a great tip from Hair Thursday reader, Ann:

If I had to describe my hair in one word, it would be puny. I am a natural blonde with lots of stick straight hair, and I finally found a product that gives my hair more texture than I’ve ever had, even more than that perm in 6th grade.

A few weeks ago I was in my ninth (9th!) wedding. With my hair being at a semi-difficult between chin and shoulder length, I had no idea what the hairstylist could possibly do to make my hair look formal. But guess what? She totally did. She began sprinkling this powder stuff on and rubbing it into my roots. And before I knew it, my hair could have rocked a sweet beehive. It really had THAT much volume.


It was Aveda Hair Potion and it was amazing stuff. If silky smooth hair is what you are going for, this is not for you. If you are craving a style that you wouldn’t normally be able to get, try this stuff. It was so fun to feel like I had someone else’s hair, if only for a night!


Open Cardigans


I would like to thank the fashion gods for creating trends that coincide so beautifully with my personal life. Take, for instance, open cardigans. With the appearance of my pregnant belly imminent, nothing makes me happier than buying darling cardigans that can be worn well after the bambino arrives. Just add my favorite pair of maternity jeans and a couple of Gap tees, and I’ve secured the majority of my winter wardrobe.
