spring/summer beauty

With summer near (and welcoming east coast humidity and long days spent at the beach), I'm starting to think about what I want to do with my hair again — chop it off again, grow it out, get a keratin treatment? I go back and forth between a 90s Christy Turlington coiffed bob or easy, lived-in waves. The later requires much less maintenance but I do love a sleek blow out. 

Ever since cutting my hair into a chin-length bob, I have discovered a love for hair accessories. Clips, barrettes, bobby pins, hair ties. It's fun way to play with hair (especially on uncooperative hair days), and I love that they sort of act as jewelry, like my new pearl barrette that can dress up any look. 

As for hair care, I've recently gone back to this shampoo and conditioner ('LOVE' for wavy hair) and this hair mask ('NOUNOU'). I'm not sure why I ever departed from this sustainable brand in the first place because not only does it smell amazing, but it's incredibly gentle on my hair, leaving it soft and nourished, even in the driest of months. Also, how chic is the packaging?
