So what did I do to celebrate summer solstice this year?
I got shorter hair for the longest day!
Destiny at Hair We Are Salon is my go-to gal (in all transparency, she’s also my daughter)!
What is summer solstice anyway?
It’s the day I revealed my new shorter haircut, and the first official day of summer- the longest day of the year. In the Northern Hemisphere, this happens on June 21st when the sun reaches its highest peak.
Hold off on the crocodile tears for the Southern Hemisphere. In no way are they left out of this marvelous occasion.
In fact, they get a double dose- like Christmas times two! When the summer solstice happens for them, it’s usually on December 21st during the holiday season- lucky ducks!
Summer solstice also gives us the longest twilight of the year. It’s usually an additional hour or so after sunset.
Summer hair, don’t care.
In this post, I share how Destiny gave me my new summer drip (that’s what the young people are saying)!
I say, “check out my summer fresh!”
My style with whimsy tip:
Bring on the big, bold accessories for a kitschy vibe with summer fun appeal!

Asymmetrical bob haircut
Destiny big-chopped the back of my bob haircut (see my before hair HERE).
My hair is really thick, so she went in with thinning shears to remove a lot of the bulk.
It lays just right.
We also decided to exaggerate this style by keeping one side of my hair longer than the other in this unique, asymmetrical bob haircut.
This cut is so summer-chic! I love that it shows off more of my shaved undercut.
Hair gets lighter.
Skin gets darker.
Water gets warmer.
Drinks get colder.
Music gets louder.
Nights get longer.
Life gets better!
Destiny used foils in my hair to achieve a natural-looking shade of red for a warm summer glow.
I think these highlights show beautifully in the summer sun!
I’ve been using these products to style my new ‘do.
