DIY Hair Maintenance: It Sort of Worked
For some reason this month is really busy for me and I have very little free time. I’ve also decided to try to save money. (Boots will be hitting the stores soon, after all.) As a time-saving and cost-cutting measure I decided to try a little DIY hair maintenance in an attempt to prolong my next visit to Misty, my beloved hairstylist. I have a bob and highlights that require touch-ups every six to seven weeks. This was a rather spontaneous decision after ducking into a Sephora to escape the brutal heat in NYC. It’s impossible for me to leave that store without a new potion. I justified my new purchases by noting that if I could extend my salon visits from every six weeks to every 8 weeks, it would save me two trips per year. Or about the price of a new pair of boots! I picked up an Oscar Blandi Root Touch-up & Highlighting Pen ($23) in light golden blonde. It comes in a mascara shaped tube and the color is dispensed onto a tiny brush which you paint onto your roots. Then I saw something called HerCut, which is a line of products developed to work with your cut, rather than your hair type. It comes in a bob, shag, long layer, pixie, and blunt cut version. A problem, perhaps, if you have an Alice Dellal penchant for multiple cuts at once.
