Style Saturday {A Hair Affair}

If I added up all the time I’ve spent washing, drying, curling, styling, spraying, cutting, coloring, discussing, obsessing, loving, hating, and debating my hair, surely it would add up to  . . . more time than I care to admit.  I’ve had all lengths (mostly long) and all colors (mostly blonde) over the years.   Each style tells a story. December 2007 (long, blonde).  Just married and oh, so in love! 526 May 2008 (short, blonde).  Ready for a “change” and chopped it to my shoulders. 622 June 2009 (medium, brunette).  Getting tired of appointments with the colorist and decided it would be better to just do a solid brunette to avoid all that maintenance.  4620_1142864541209_1515349668_369870_6075235_n May 2010 (pony tail always, blondish).  Bummed to discover that the brunette also required maintenance, and faded so quickly, so  . . . going back to blonde- but in the Houston heat, pony tails work best.

Best Super Blonde– Jessica Simpson.  A blonde bombshell. Best Red– Julianne Moore.  Super sexy. Best Brunette– Jessica Alba.  She’s done a lot of colors, but rich brown is my favorite on her.

Best Waves– Gisele Bundchen giselle bundchen Top 10 Richest Celebrity Designers Best Curls– Kim Kardashian kim-kardashian-portrait.jpg Best All Around– Jennifer Aniston.  Just looks effortless and gorgeous always.  Beautiful color always.  I don’t know how she gets it so super-straight.  Remember the really early days of Friends- naturally curly??

Hi! I’m Megan, mom to a thoughtful teenager and spunky young girl. We call Houston home and recently moved into our dream home. I traded my lawyer hat to become a full-time blogger in 2010. I love sharing my passion for affordable fashion, home decor, organization, & fitness to help inspire you to take care of you!


  1. Wow you look great as a brunette too! You could pull off many looks very easily. I do love Jen Aniston of course and Reese's bangs. Reese always has great hair. I tried to have bangs like that and yea, it didn't work. I look stupid with them.

    My hair is in a clippy. Every single day. 🙂

  2. Hands down Nancy O'Dell. Have always envied her hair. I took her picture to my stylist and said I want the brunette version of THIS!

  3. Had the super blond with bangs like Reese for a long time. Now it's grown out, wavy, and dark blondish… going for the Giselle look. I love ALL of your picks. I agree that Jen Aniston's hair always looks great. Such a natural "California girl" beauty.
    I feel ya about the ponytail. I think it's a mom in the summertime thang. 😉

  4. I change my hair all the time too. I was blonde for two years and for my wedding, then went brunette shortly after; now, a year later I'm blonde again! 🙂

  5. I used to change my color a lot too. The past 2 years I've kinda settled on the idea that brown is best on me and why fix what's not broken?! Now I just mess with the style (bangs, curls, braids, etc.).

    I love Olivia's hair too! It always looks so perfect! I'd like to be a fly on the wall while she dries and styles it!

  6. Ok, you are so supermodel. I love you blonde…but I'm a blonde, it's what I know! Jessica is THE definition of bombshell blonde.

  7. Ok, you are so supermodel. I love you blonde…but I'm a blonde, it's what I know! Jessica is THE definition of bombshell blonde.

  8. Ok, you are so supermodel. I love you blonde…but I'm a blonde, it's what I know! Jessica is THE definition of bombshell blonde.

  9. Every hairdo you've sported was awesome! Mines been blonde… blonde… oh! and the same ol' blonde! It's naturally this light and I would love to play brunette for a while but blonde roots would look like I were going bald. And that's no bueno 🙂
