The Yearly Chop

I'm semi embarrassed to admit that I only get a haircut about once a year with the occasional self-imposed trim.  Luckily I haven't been prone to split ends which has allowed me to get away with this bad habit for so long.

It's always around this time of year that I start to get the urge to chop it all off!  I've gone from super long mid-back length hair to a bob that reaches to about my chin.  This hair cycle of long to short has been my norm since college.  With my wedding day less than 7 months away (eek!!) I can't go for my usual short hairdo so I've decided to do go with something mid-length.  This way I can let my hair grow back to it's current length by the time the big day rolls around.  Win win, right?

My hair inspiration and muse for this  mid-length cut is none other than Olivia Palermo.  I loved to hate her in MTV's, The City; but damn, I have to admit that I have always loved her personal style from day one.  Her sophisticated and oh so chic outfits and her au natural makeup is always spot on.

I picked up a Life Booker deal for a cut, conditioning treatment, and blowout at a hair salon called Tomoko Shima on 14th Street.  I'm excited to go because I've heard (and read) some amazing reviews!  Will update again with my experience!
