Rena & Me : Bobbed


So Rena and I switched up our hair to shorter bobs for the summer in an effort to try to stay cool. Her hair is way more manageable than mine though especially when it's humid and it's been really humid in NYC lately. What's your go to summer hair style? Any tips for fighting humidity?

I'm wearing my Firmoo frames here. These are one of the styles you can win in my international Firmoo Eyewear Giveaway which ends this Friday. Rena has some really cute glasses of her own as well.

Love this cut very much. My hair doesn't like humidity either and I am currenly looking for a product my stylist used. I also tried John Frieda serum once before - it did a good job, too, but I would love to find something more natural this time. x

Just an adorable pic of you two. I love it!

Yeah, the humidity here is high all throughout the year. I use a lot of hair cream and hairspray to keep the hair strands from popping out everywhere.

You two look cute with short hair, that pair of glasses suit you well. I have been tempted to go short but dont have enough courage to pull a trigger just yet. Gotta do it one of these days, time for a change.

Love it! I have super long hair and frizzy in the summer. So lots of updo's for me. (:

Rowena, you look so cute and I adore your new hair cut! I've always been a huge fan of bob hairstyles. Yours looks like an inverted bob (LOVE THOSE). You wear it well. Rena always has fabulous hair. You are mean (great) with a pair of scissors Rowena! My hair is FINALLY growing! LOL I had a hair catastrophe awhile back so it's been cut so many times. I had a cute bob! I hope those days hurry and come back. The humidity is horrid here in New Orleans. I think my hair has adjusted to it. LOL I just try to keep products to a minimum. Thanks for suggesting those sites! The Korean cosmetic and beauty market is HUGE! So I'm just scratching the surface. I'll definitely look into those. Thank you! ((hug))

Hi Rowena, your new hairstyle looks beautiful. Rena looks lovely too. This used to be my signature look for years but decided to grow it now. Ive also heard about John Frieda's weather proofing frizz treatment. Try an argan oil serum (I use the V05 version) or mist hairspray on your brush and comb through. I know lots of people who went for bionic hair straightening and for them, frizz is a thing of the past. It makes your hair really slick and smooth. Thanks so much for your kind thoughts on my last post :)

You and Rena looks so adorable. I notice you like to collect dolls as a hobby, by any chance are you going to Blythe Con in NYC on October? If you are I hope to meet you there cause I signed up for it.

Your bob is very cute and similar to Rena's but you both style it differently. I have a bunch of hair products that I have used for frizz but haven't yet found anything that is a match for my out of control hair. I have had the best success with the oils {I used pequi oil, I have friends that like the Moroccan line} but I was told I had too much build up in my hair so I stopped that.

Leslie said...

OMGosh Rowena! You are too cute:) I wish I could do that with my hair.. it would look so silly on me. I have the worst course, straight, and graying hair.. It's always a pain. Yours looks so healthy and beautiful:) ..just like you!

What a cute bob. I've just returned from my holiday and the humidity is always a problem with hair styles - I wish I had the solution!

Both looking mighty sweet!! Live the bob♡

I love the bobs Rowena--so cute--I'm almost wishing I had one, my hair is feeling frizzed a bit despite all the oils, conditioners etc.--I guess it's the season.

Ivana said...

You both look gorgeous, girls :) Bob suits you both perfectly! My go-to summer style is a high ponytail, or even better, a top knot that gets all my hair away from my face and neck!
