6 Things All Girls Experience During A Haircut

6 Things All Girls Experience During A Haircut

A new 'do' for the new you.

You wake up and look out the window with the sun pouring in. It’s finally spring! The seasons are quickly changing and even though you’ve already been adding new shorts, tops and sandals to your wardrobe for the warm weather, you’re probably bored with your everyday hairstyle. You get out of bed and walk into the bathroom. Looking into the mirror, you’re probably wondering why your roommate even lets you walk out of the house on a daily basis with as many split ends as you have. You start to face the truth: you’re due for a new hair style. ASAP.

Since there are endless possibilities for a new cut or color, you pour a cup of coffee and sit down with your laptop and sift through thousands of pictures of Pinterest for your new ‘do’. When you’ve finally found it, you call your favorite hair salon and set the appointment. But from the time you arrive to the salon to the time you get home and can finally play around with your hair the way you want to, you love the experience of getting a haircut.

1. Being in your favorite salon is like being in heaven.

You walk in filled with excitement, ready to show your stylist pictures of what you want to walk out with. Looking around, everything is just like you remembered it: the shiny mirrors, the good smelling hair products and the excitement you feel knowing your hair transformation is about to happen.

2. You only want to see your favorite stylist. No one else. Ever.

You love your stylist because she listens to you and gives you what you want. She knows how to shampoo and comb out the tangles in your hair just right, and she listens to you when you want your hair a little shorter than originally planned. But, she also knows how much you love to talk about your life. Not to mention, you love hearing about her life, too. You might not go out for dinner and drinks like your other friends, but sitting in her styling chair watching her transform your mess of curls into something socially acceptable is just as good.

3. You love your hair being styled by someone else.

When your stylist is done cutting away at your locks, you already know how you want her to style your hair. A blow dry and curls, please! You have to wake up every morning and do your hair yourself, so you might as well ask for what you want while you have the chance. Plus, it feels glamorous.

4. The anticipation of seeing your new do is torture.

While your stylist is blow drying your hair, each minute passes more slowly than the last. You just can’t wait to see what your hair looks like. Although you have a pretty good idea, you still pretend like you don’t know and jitter in your chair until the moment of truth comes.

5. The moment of truth.

Here it is! The moment has come when your stylist will swivel the chair around to the mirror and you can stare at your reflection and run your hands through your hair for the first time since walking in the door. You will either love or hate your new hair, but assuming you will love it, you thank your stylist and smile from ear to ear feeling like a model when you walk out the door.

6. You feel like a million bucks.

You swear on all that is holy you will want to keep this new style for the rest of your life, even though deep down inside you know you will become restless with your hair soon enough. But in the meantime, you strut around feeling like a model. Work it.

20 Small Tattoos With Big Meanings

Tattoos with meaning you can't deny.

It's tough to find perfect tattoos with meaning.

You probably want something permanent on your body to mean something deeply, but how do you choose a tattoo that will still be significant in 5, 10, 15, or 50 years? Over time, tattoos have lost much of their stigma and many people consider them a form of art, but it's still possible to get a tattoo you regret.

So here are 20 tattoos you can't go wrong with. Each tattoo has its own unique meaning, but don't blame me if you still have to deal with questions that everyone with a tattoo is tired of hearing!

SEE RELATED: "Please Stop Asking What My Tattoos Mean"

1. A semi-colon indicates a pause in a sentence but does not end. Sometimes it seems like you may have stopped, but you choose to continue on.

2. "A smooth sea never made a skilled sailor."

3. Top symbol: unclosed delta symbol which represents open to change. Bottom symbol: strategy.

4. "There are nights when the wolves are silent and only the moon howls."

5. Viking symbol meaning "create your own reality."

6.Greek symbol of Inguz: where there's a will, there's a way.

7. Psalm 18:33 "He makes my feet like the feet of a deer; he causes me to stand on the heights."

8. 'Ohm' tattoo that represents 4 different states of consciousness and a world of illusion: waking (jagrat), dreaming (swapna), deep sleep (sushupti), transcendental state (turiya) and world of illusion (maya)

9. Alchemy: symbolizes copper, means love, balance, feminine beauty and artistic creativity.

10. The Greek word “Meraki" means to do something with soul, passion, love and creativity or to put yourself in to whatever you do.

11. Malin (Skövde, Sweden) – you have to face setbacks to be able to go forward.

12. Symbol meaning "thief" from the Hobbit. It was the rune Gandalf etched into Bilbo's door so the dwarves could find his house.

13. “Lux in tenebris" means “light in darkness."

14. Anchor Tattoo: symbolizing strength & stability, something (or someone) who holds you in place, and provides you the strength to hold on no matter how rough things get.

15."Ad Maiora" is translated literally as “Towards greater things." It is a formula of greeting used to wish more success in life, career or love.

16. A glyphs means “explore." It was meant as a reminder for me to never stop exploring.

17. "Aut inveniam viam aut faciam," meaning roughly, "Either I shall find a way, or I will make one."

18. Lotus Flower. It grows in muddy water, and it is this environment that gives forth the flower's first and most literal meaning: rising and blooming above the murk to achieve enlightenment.

19. The zen (or ensō) circle to me represents enlightenment, the universe & the strength we all have inside of us.

20. Two meanings. The moon affirms life. It looks as if it is constantly changing. Can reminds us of the inconsistency of life. It is also symbolizes the continuous circular nature of time and even karma.

3 Must-Have Shoes From The Disney Vans Collection

In celebration of Mickey Mouse's 90th birthday happening this fall, Vans has created a collection solely around our favorite mouse.


This year, our favorite mouse is celebrating his 90th birthday. Mickey Mouse continues to touch the heart of many and shows no sign of stopping. In celebration of his big day, which is November 18th, Vans has created a magical collection for Mickey fans of all ages to enjoy and rock at the parks. This collection is not limited to just sneakers but features apparel and backpacks. However, in this piece, I will focus on the must-have sneakers. Here are my three must-have shoes from the collection that will make Disney bounding at the parks effortless.

1. Add subtle touches of your favorite mouse to any outfit with Vans Old Skool shoe.

Vans couldn't make a collection dedicated to our favorite mouse without going "old skool." These shoes possess subtle hints of Mickey Mouse by using his iconic colors and featuring his name (on the black shoe) or his glove (on the white shoe). These shoes will put the finishing touches on any outfit. From a spirit jersey to an outfit that consists of Mickey's signature colors, these shoes will look perfect and allow you to walk with the magic on your soles.

The classic "old skool" shoe by Vans is not the only classic gracing this magic-filled collection. Another shoe is bringing the dots and the puffy bow Mickey's cute companion is known for.

2. Level up your #MinnieStyle with the authentic gore.

Over the summer, Ciara dropped her new single "Level Up" teaching us all that we should reach for new heights. This includes your wardrobe. As a Walt Disney World local, I love seeing people rock their #MinnieStyle. The hashtag generates over 73,000 posts on Instagram alone and is a great source for inspiration on your next park outfit. The authentic gore shoe will not only bring the dots but the puffy bow that our girl Minnie is known for. If you love Minnie and her dots as much as I do, this is your shoe.

The collection between Disney and Vans have several Disney Style certified shoes to not only take your next park outfit to the next level of style but to a new level of comfort. Who says you can't be cute and comfortable at your favorite Disney park?

3. The classic slip-on in checkered print with a mouse twist will bring the magic to any outfit.

Every park visit for me doesn't always consist of workout shorts and a t-shirt. Sometimes I like to level up my relaxed look to everyday casual chic. These cute classic slip-on checkered Vans are a must with jeans skirts and shorts. The shoes would always go perfectly with a cute t-shirt dress. These shoes bring a perfect hint of Mickey magic to any causal park day outfit.

All the shoes in this collection are park hopper friendly. It doesn't matter if you're escaping the Yeti on Expedition Everest or riding the wildest ride in the wilderness, your feet will thank you later after a long day at the parks.

Since dropping on October 5th, many of the sneakers from the collab between Vans and Disney have sold out in stores and online. If you're lucky enough to get your hands on any of the EAR-resistible footwear in this collection, comment how you're styling it.
