14 days of loves: day 1 {B&B Surf Spray}

{From now until Valentine's Day I will be posting one thing each day I "love" right now - in addition to my regular posts.  Enjoy!}

Love for Day #1: Bumble and Bumble 'Surf Spray'
I have always hesitated to buy these salty surf sprays because I thought they would make my hair sticky and gooey.  My hair is prone to get oily anyway, so I don't want make matters worse.  However, my stylist convinced me when I recently chopped 10 inches off my hair that my new haircut would require a little product.  Product.  I never like to hear that word uttered by my stylist as I always feel like I'm being pressured to buy stuff I don't need.  As you probably know, I am really cheap.  So I usually listen to the spiel and then politely say, "Um, I'll think about it." even though I don't really need to.

But my recent haircut, named "the shab" by the fashion mags because it is a cross between a "shag" and a "bob" 

(apparently "the slob" didn't sound as cute) had me feeling like I needed something.   My stylist convinced me that all I would need was this Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray.  A couple of spritzes, whether my hair is wet or dry, and a few "scrunches" with my fingers was all it would take...

And she was right.  I don't blow dry.  I don't curl.  I don't flat iron.  I don't even need hairspray or dry shampoo.
Sure, it does look a little disheveled...but it's supposed to!
Plus, this is on my third day of styling (as I only wash every 3rd day.)  Not too "shabby." :)
I love it.  It's easy, modern, and did I mention easy?  Perfectly easy for a new mama stayin' at home...and sassy enough for a night out.  And I only need one fabulous product.

Another lovely 'love' tomorrow for Day 2!


  1. Love the shab! Not to shabby! I prefer my look it's called the what the f**k. It's what happens when u have loooong hair and no idea what to do with it to get it out of the way particularly when you're exhausted. so u stAnd infront of the mirror and say " wtf am I gonna do with you today, besides not cut u" <3

  2. That must have been a stragne feeling, seeing all your hair cut off on the floor...but I'm loving the new do!! How gorgeous - and how EASY!! Perfect!


  3. i've always wanted to try that stuff but i'm cheap too. i've seen on pinterest that there's actually a way to make your own [in case you ever want to try your hand at that!] LOVE the new cut!

  4. Oh what a fun cut! Man. I have had my hair the same. Forever. ;) I keep thinking about a cut, but then I get scared that I will actually have to do something with it. ;) Looks great!

  5. I love the new cut, it looks really great!!!
