Snip snip, where's it all gone?

Hey Pixies!
So it feels like over the past few months everything's been changing. I've started sixth form, I started Youtube (link on the right!), I redesigned my blog and to top it all off I've cut off all my hair!
So as you may or may not know I've had ombre for about a year and few months and I was getting really bored, so decided to dye it a dark brown. Only this highlighted the massive problem of the fact that the ends of my hair were DEAD. So I decided to take the plunge and have the chop!

(If you like this makeup look, keep an eye out on my youtube channel as I just filmed a 'get ready with me' type thing on it. It will be up in a few weeks so if you'd like to see it make sure you subscribe!)

I am SO glad I did. Despite the fact that I can't shove it in a messy bun when I'm being lazy or the fact that the need for a scarf is now far more prevalent, I am loving having shorter hair!

It is so much healthier and feels so soft. It is ridiculously quick and easy to style and it also makes the colour I dyed it look a lot better.

Here are a few things I've been loving to style it:

After I have washed my hair I tend to use the L'Oreal Mythic Oil on the ends and generally through it. I then spray it all over with heat protectant before I blow-dry it. The one I've been using recently is the TRESemme one.

To gain volume before I blow-dry I tend to opt for either a mousse, this one is by VO5, or recently I've been quite liking the TRESemme 24 Hour Body, Root Boosting Spray. This just ensures that I get the most amount of volume possible from blow-drying it. I have also been falling back in love with the Batiste dry shampoo on second to third day hair as it really gives it a messy, voluminous, bed head look.

As far as styling it goes I've been loving this little barrel brush for blowdrying. When I had long hair I would use a bigger one but I love this one at the moment as it just seems like the perfect size. I tend to wear my hair curly most of the time now and the way I do this is with a hair straightener; these are Remington ones. I am really tempted to ask for GHDs for christmas but I don't know whether they are worth the large price tag when there are other things I would like, do you guys have any advice?

So that's it! I just fancied chatting to you guys about my new hair as it's really new and exciting for me. I am aware that some may not regard this as that short but for someone who's never had her hair shorter than below her shoulders, this was a big deal for me!

Are you considering a new hairstyle or have you had a major haircut recently?
