before after hair cut Girl Talk: Lets Dish Hair
I love hair! I love looking at cute styles. I love admiring great cuts, but I do NOT like spending time on my hair. Therefore, I’d say I tend to be a “boring” hair kind of girl, except when I infrequently get it done at the salon. Then I tell them to have at it, (as long as I can still put it in a pony tail…boring, I told you.)
The above picture is my “before and after” of a salon cut and style. Yes, it’s amazing to me what someone can do with a flat iron. Earlier this year was the first time ever I’ve had a flat iron used on my hair and I felt like a teen ager. My daughters even thought I kind of looked like one and my teen sons kept staring at me.
It looked SO different!
Well, I bought my daughter a cheap flat iron and it just wasn’t the same. It barely works. I know that in order to have salon looking hair, you need salon quality products. I worked in a hair salon for three years during college, and I STILL use the curling iron from my days there. I’ve bought three other ones and I keep going back to that one.
When my Holiday Bash Girlfriends told me about (It’s all about the hair), and how they could not believe the way our new hair dryers and flat irons worked, I was so excited.  Many of them have frizzy, fussy hair and they have never had home products that worked and styled the ways these do. To introduce me to some of the high-end products available on, I was given both  a Thermal Ionic Hair Dryer and Ceramic Ion Flat Iron. My daughter and I can hardly wait to use our flat iron. I am bound and determined to see if I can get that salon look in five minutes or less. is your one-stop shopping site for all of your haircare needs with high quality, discounted prices.
