Last September I chopped off 8 inches and I’ve been loving my shorter hair. For most of my life, I’ve really enjoyed having long hair, but it’s been fun to change my look over the past couple of months. When I went into Spoke & Weal Los Angeles this week I was excited to go even shorter than I had in September. I was ready to embrace New Year, New Hair. Getting a haircut in the new year always feels like a really symbolic way to release the previous year.
I let my stylist Abigail at Spoke & Weal know that I wanted to go a little shorter and I am loving the end result! I love that at Spoke & Weal they do a dry cut because you can actually see how the hair looks and make adjustments as you go. I had initially told Abigail that I wanted to trim 3 inches and when she was done with the initial trim, I told her I wanted to go a little shorter so she cut a few more inches, added texture/layers and framed my face with a few layers.
I love that it takes less time to style my shorter hair and it’s overall easier to maintain. I’ve shared some of my favorite Aveda products in previous blog posts, but I wanted to share my current styling products. After I wash my hair, I spray my whole hair with speed of light™ Blow Dry Accelerator Spray which helps cut down drying time, then I use the smooth infusion™ style-prep smoother™ which I love because it defends against humidity, and in between washes I use the shampure™ Dry Shampoo to instantly revive my hair.

Aveda recently reformulated two of their shampoos and conditioner. I’ve been alternating between both and absolutely love them!
Shampure Nurturing Shampoo and Conditioner:
Aveda’s iconic Shampure Nurturing Shampoo and Conditioner are back and better than ever with a new 96% naturally derived silicone-free formula. Shampure now contains Abyssinian oil, a natural silicone alternative that adds weightless nourishment and softness without greasiness.
Rosemary Mint Purifying Shampoo and Weightless Conditioner:
Aveda’s reformulated Rosemary Mint Purifying Shampoo and Weightless Conditioner are now 97% naturally derived and gently clarify and condition the hair. In a consumer study, 8/10 respondents said the aroma was effective in helping them wake up – like a cup of coffee – feel invigorated and make their minds feel focused.
I absolutely agree! This shampoo and conditioner smells amazing and feels very energizing.
