I have always wanted to try a wet look hair style. So for our latest photoshoot, I asked my hairdresser to do her magic on my hair. And it turned out so nice! I felt like a cool super model the whole day with my sleek hair and I promised myself I would try to recreate the style for the upcoming parties. Hairdressers always make it seem so simple though – it’s a bit too easy to imagine myself walking up to a party looking like an otter – with my wet look hair gone horribly wrong. 

Since I knew my hair would be very sleek I wanted to balance my looks with a soft smokey eye. You know, bring some softness to my looks since my face is already quite robust. How to create a soft smokey eye, you ask? Well, it’s all about the colors. I used warm brown colors with a hint of red (from the KICKS palette). I also left the center of my lid lighter, like a halo eye. That always makes the eye look more open and not as harsh. I chose a warm color for my lips as well. I still can’t get over how much I like brownish lip colors nowadays. Those used to be so horrible, in my opinion. And now I’m wearing them.

I also wore a new foundation, that I finally bought another bottle of. I mean, it’s a new bottle, but it’s an old favorite. This is my fifth bottle, I think.  I know I already have so many different foundations that I could use, but I still missed that Clarins foundation. It’s just a special product. It feels so soft and satiny on my skin. And it’s lasting powers are something else.

And about powers: mine seem to be wearing off a little too quickly. This dark November is tough, I must admit. I find myself being so tired and melancholic. I know I said it’s my favorite time of the year, but nothing ever seems to be so black and white. But I’ll just power through and focus on the good things. That’s what I’ve always done, after all. Besides, the proper Christmas tree is going up this weekend – I know it will definitely give me more energy.

What do you think of this sleek wet look hair style?

Just cut it!

Just cut it.

Sounds simple, but sometimes it’s so hard to get rid of something that is so attached to you. Such as, your hair.

I don’t know why I’ve always felt like I need to have long hair. Like, I’ve actually felt ugly and insecure if it was short. Maybe it has something to do with the two times I’ve cut my hair super short and immediately regretted it. Like, I’ve done it without giving it much of a thought. Which, though, sounds like a typical Charlotta.

But a while back I got to the conclusion that my hair was just not doing me any favors. Cutting my hair much shorter was something I actually had thought about for a longer time – even though the decision happened quickly (like, do you know the feeling when you just need something to happen NOW?). You know I’m all about those natural curls, but my hair was so long and the ends were so damaged, they hardly managed to curl at all.

So I guess I did it for the curls.

Before and after!

And I have no regrets! I love my shorter hair. Which is still long. It’s like short long hair. Or long short hair. Or a long bob? Be it whatever – it curls so much better now and actually that’s what’s making it appear shorter than it is. My hair can now lift itself up.

And I feel quite lifted as well. Making a change to your hair is quite a powerful thing to do, as superficial as it sounds. I am so happy I made the big cut. I feel quite relieved. I don’t need my hair to be long – I just want it to appear healthy and nice.

In these photos you see my hair in it’s natural state – there are no curl creams whatsoever used. Susanna just washed my hair and used some moisturizing curl cream and a light oil. Then she diffused my hair and let it live it’s best life. She even used a sulfate-free shampoo, because she knows how I am. So if you have naturally curly hair and are thinking of going to a hairdresser – I can warmly recommend Susanna.

Thank you Susanna for once again taking care of my hair!
