Happy Monday, everyone! NYFW has been crazy busy with lots of running around to shows, events, parties and let's not forget to mention working! Thank goodness to the one and only, Fox & Jane, the only hair salon in New York City that cuts and colors my hair. I've been with them for years and cannot express the amazing talent and team they have! With the new season approaching us this month and the fact that my hair has gotten too long to wear up, (I have *serious* thick hair so ponytails were no longer a possibility due to major headaches - yes, your hair can literally weigh you down.), I was long overdue for a cut & color. Just look at the top of my hair and how flat it looked because of the length! Don't get me wrong. I love having long hair, but it's a healthy change - both for me and my hair. :)
Whenever I go in to get my hair done, I get it cut just past my collarbones. Not too long and not too short, and with layers. I also have been continuously doing balayage highlights, the goal in mind is to get lighter and lighter, but naturally and healthily. Asian hair is extremely stubborn, and in my case, my natural hair is jet black and wants to stay that way! It has taken many sessions to today's results. And I'm not at all the high-maintenance type, especially when it comes to my hair so I try to stay away from major drastic changes.
Which is why I only work with one stylist, my girl Lataye! She not only fully understands my hair type, but she also knows what works for me in terms of personal style and everyday care. I'd rather be doing a lot more with my time than just standing in front of a mirror maintaining my hair all day long. And balayage highlights is perfect for low maintenance - yet it looks seamless and refined at the same time. Lataye's work speaks for itself! And I just love her - she's the sweetest!
I find Fox & Jane's technique and all-around vibes to be top-notch. And when I find a good thing, I stick with it! You know what I mean? Loyal until the end. If you're in the city and are looking to try a new salon, I 100% recommend Fox & Jane. There are multiple locations in Manhattan; East Village, Lower East Side & Upper West Side. There's also one in Brooklyn, San Diego & more recently, Colorado Springs! Give them a try ladies (and gents) - you won't regret it! Take a look down below at the time lapse video I created from my last visit. And be sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel for new videos every week.
I'm off to get more work done and wrap up the rest of the fashion week. Stay tuned for several stories coming up on the blog! I'll be sharing my travel diary from our glamping trip Upstate (it was incredible // check out my Instagram for some teaser shots), plus my experiences & favorites from NYFW and lots of upcoming fall fashion editorials. And an interview or two. Phew! All coming soon! Stay tuned...
