My Favorite Hair Products and Tools

Beauty

Since cutting my hair above my shoulders last January, I’ve found my hair easier to manage, look fuller, and more fun to play with.

My LASIK Experience

Beauty

I’ve worn glasses since I was in 6th grade. I had to get them for being nearsighted as well as astigmatism. I always hated glasses. They made me feel claustrophobic and always slide down my nose.
