    I just found her site two days ago… and it is addictive! She has me thinking about getting a trim too!

    That is the cutest hairstyle! Once I lose all my baby weight (and maybe a bit more) I'm chopping my hair. This is great inspiration. And I'm pretty sure I repin 90% of your pins 😉

    Wow! Thanks for letting us know! Her hair is fab, and I desperately need some hair tutorials. I can do straightened and ponytail only lol

    LOVE this style! Not sure if you had a ton of hair loss after you had your little one, but i sure did. I had to chop off my hair into a pixie-esque cut because of some crazy bald spots! This is the hair I want SO bad!!! Love her site! 🙂

    I need to cut about five inches of my hair and I've been looking for a blog like this!! Thanks! I need serious hair tutorials to do fun things with my hair!

    Such cute hairstyles, makes me want to cut my hair but it took forever to grow it back out.

    I also saved this as one of my favorites. I'm going to ask my stylist for a longer version of this haircut. I think her highlights make it though! Alas, I'm a brunette…

    I came over from Serenity Now because Amanda gushed about you….and now I find this chain reaction – because now I HAVE to go check out this hair blog! I LOVE me some great hair styles!!

    I love that first shot. My hair is so wavy and thick that it won't hold that kind of volume without an act of God. No matter how hard I try to get it straight, some sort of kink always makes its way back in. I could use her blog! Thanks for the introduction!

    I have seen this pin on pinterest too and totally loved it! I am going to go have to check out this tutorial. Thanks for the post.

    Will have to check her site out! Beautiful hair!! Mine is short now, but I love that style.

    I just featured her last week…she does her 'curly style' the same way I do mine. I love all her tutorials!

    Happy extra day off!

    She's got great hair! I love her haircut in that first photo. I'm in the mood for a messy pony today so I'll see if I can do it following her tutorial. Happy Labor Day to you, Megan.

    I discovered her blog about a week ago and I keep going back to make sure I'm curling my hair correctly! Hope you're doing well.

    I found her blog a little over a week ago and I LOVE it! I've already done a couple of her hair tutorials and they turned out amazing (which is saying alot since I have extremely fine hair).

  22. September 6, 2011 / 12:52 pm

    I had seen that hairstyle about a week ago and printed to give to my hairstylist. I love it!

  23. September 9, 2011 / 1:02 am

    Oh man… these pictures make me wanna cut my hair! Esp since this is the longest I've kept my hair in a while–it's normally been about Kate's length. Oh man…

    I love this haircut/style. I have super curly hair {that was chemically damaged about 2 yrs ago} and is currently in the growing back super slow phase. When I straighten it I'd say the length is about 3 inches longer than in the picture but that part needs to be chopped right off! "Have mercy" — this cut is perfect! Thank you for sharing.
