Disney Gave Me Unrealistic Expectations About Hair

and men. But since this blog isn't about men, I'll stick to the part about hair.

I saw that picture above on Pinterest the other day, thought, yeah Disney, thanks a lot. Why is it that when I try to run a fork through my hair it gets stuck and doesn't slide right through? Or how exactly did Belle have a bun, but also have her hair down? These are the questions that I want answers to! 

I may not know the answer to those questions, but working at a salon has taught me a few tricks of the trade. For instance, did you know that even if you're growing your hair out you need to get regular trims to get your ends healthy?

Having hair like a princess isn't so hard to achieve if you know how to take care of it. Here are a couple of tips to help you reach your princess goal.
  • Always condition.Always. 
  • It is essential to use a heat protectant when you're blowdrying, flat-ironing, or curling your hair. 
  • I know it sounds quite simple, but always brush your hair. Some people just need to be reminded. 
  • Keep up with your haircuts. Don't go months between them or you'll hair will never be like Rapunzel.
  • Never experiment with at home color. Here's a true story, I once tried to bleach my friend's entire head out. It looked like a rainbow when we were done.
Getting the princesses color is easy, it's the style that could be hard. But just remember your friend the round brush and all will be okay.

Which princess has the best hair in your opinion? Tell me in the comments below!
