It’s such a good feeling when you finally come to terms with the fact that your hair isn’t changing, or going anywhere. It’s the crown you never take off.
According to Dove Love Your Hair Campaign’s studies, only 11% of women love everything about their hair and wouldn’t change anything about it. I am working with them to change that statistic. Embracing the uniqueness of your hair is one of the most important things you can do to creating your personal style and appearance. Which makes it crazy to know that so many women aren’t confident in their hair. In fact, according to Dove Hair’s research, three in four women believe they would have greater self-confidence if they didn’t feel that they were being judged by their hair. Your hair is such an important tool, and you should all enjoy it! I’m partnering with Dove Hair to help inspire women to feel the way I finally feel about my hair. For years, stylists have urged me to try new colors and cuts, and though I experimented—I know what truly feels like, well, me. I’m Italian, but I still like my hair lighter in the summer. As long as the base color is my original color I’m happy getting a little sun-kissed. Long and natural is a part of my look. I love a subtle beach wave, or even a few spritzes of sea salt for some texture. There’s no need to pretend my hair is anything other than what it is—my hair. I love the simplicity of being able to twist my hair up with a paint brush or pencil while I’m busy illustrating. Of course I love a nice done-up or blown-out style, but my everyday, manageable hair makes such an impact on my personal style. I’m a braid girl, a messy beach waved girl. And that part of me will never change, because I love my natural hair.
In collaboration with Dove Hair, I’ve been able to see so many beautiful looks, and felt even more inclined to embrace my own. I urge you to visit Dove Hair on Pinterest to take a peak at some of the beautiful woman, each with beautifully unique hair. Unsure of your own hair? Have a peak at this film, and I guarantee it will change your mind. #LoveYourHair #DovePartner
