What does that mean to you? It might mean letting go of people in your life who pressure you to be something other than yourself.

As hard as it may seem, don't worry about losing people. Only cling to yourself.

However you choose to celebrate the holiday, I hope it's special for you and the fathers in your life!

Using different products every time I styled my hair was making the results too unpredictable. I've also started writing down (when I remember) what products I used and how I felt about the results. Here are some styles I've worn over the last couple weeks:
