it’s been such a great week, having my little sister hannah back in new york city! i’m so happy she and her husband have moved here! hannah and i actually lived in new york city for a few years together when we were younger, the first few years i was attending juilliard and she was finishing up her high school experience at school of american ballet. we lived in the same dorm building at lincoln center, even though we were studying at different programs. she’s 18 months younger than me, but she was my rock during a lot of my experiences during those years. lots of growing up was done here in the city with her by my side. it just feels right that she’s here once again, and having never lived near family since those first few college years with her in the city, it just makes me so happy we are finally getting this chance! ahh!

once hannah arrived last week, i thought it would be fun to have a sister-sister morning and do a fun little outing together.  a few months ago, Nexxus New York Salon Care kindly invited me to attend the New York City Ballet fall gala with their global creative director kevin mancuso. i had such a good time and have been enjoying trying out some of their hair care products since the ballet.  hannah and i started our sister-sister morning off by visiting Nexxus’ first-ever salon, the Nexxus New York Salon, which is in tribeca.  the Nexxus team kindly treated us to customized hair treatments and kevin gave me a new hair cut involving bangs! (YES! the bangs are back!) we then hit up my absolute favorite place for pancakes, bubby’s, which just so happens to be right across the street! it’s like, could that block get any cooler?!

a few photos from our morning….


kevin pretty much felt my hair and prescribed their Emergencée reconstructing treatment! ha! the treatment helps reconstruct damaged hair by repairing the internal structure of fibers. between having colored it a lot, three babies (post partum hair is super fun – i’m kidding! it’s the worst) and being in the midst of winter, i was like, YES PLEASE! HELP ME! also, the Nexxus New York  Salon has this cool interactive mirror that helps show your hair story, it assists kevin is choosing the best treatment for  your hair, it was awesome. i also always love a good before and after photo, so that part was really fun!

one of the things that impresses me most about the Nexxus New York Salon Care brand is how focused they are finding movement within your hair. throughout my entire hair cut, kevin kept stepping back and having me shake my head around, watching how my hair would fall and then shaping it to keep the fluidity and movement still there.  it was such a different experience. i loved it.



ps. these fancy intelligent, ergonomic chairs were insane! they also have the most incredibly designed sinks with neck rests that almost put me to sleep, it was so relaxing and comfy.


what’s up, sis?!


excited to have the bangs back! and excited to keep on keepin’ on when it comes to growing out the rest of my hair! even if it is taking a bajillion years. ;)


and then some, BUBBY’S!

    You two are such a cuties and very much look a like, esp. on the photos where you’re both smiling. :D
    I love spending time with my sister and am always sad that we live so far away and don’t get to nearly spend as much time together as we’d like to.

  2. Gabrielle

    You and your sister are absolutely gorgeous! Could pass off as twins! Naomi, you suit short hair so much. I wish I had the face for short hair! You also suit long hair too. Lovely photos.

    I just got my bangs put back in yesterday and oh my gosh I feel super sassy with them back in!

  7. Elaine Valdes

    Hi! I’m so glad you and your sister are reunited! I’m currently trying to persuade my sisters to make a moves well. :) You mentioned you wanted to grow out your hair- I would suggest Hairfinity vitamins! They worked wonders for growing my hair and are natural!

  38. Adeline

    Love this post! Although there’s a bigger age gap between my siblings and me, it really made me miss living closer to them. I’m craving for a sister/sister date now!

    I also love both you and your sister’s lipsticks in those photos, which ones are they?

  39. Fannie

    This is too cute! Love the bangs, I’m feeling inspired to give them a try now:)


  40. Lauren Bee

    I’m so glad someone asked who was taking the photos! I was wondering! I obviously don’t look close enough and totally missed the “hidden Josh” ;)

    I wish I had sisters. I’m an only child and I don’t even have any cousins the same age as me. I always feel like I missed out on a special bond.

    Glad you’ve got Hannah close by now. Must be the best feeling :)

  41. Bruna

    You gals’ look gorgeous!I’m a huge fan of bangs, you always look beautiful with them or any other hairstyle ;)


  42. Kristina

    I’m 13 months older than my sister and there is nothing quite like the bond between us. Our husbands are such gems for understanding our special relationship. What fun that you and your sister get to live so close to one another again!

  43. Aah I love these photos! It looks like the best day, Your hair looks amazing, both of you x

  44. Melissa

    Hi, love the pics!! Do you mind sharing where your pretty gingham top is from?

  45. Lisa

    LOVE Bubby’s. And the photobooth helps make it my favorite place!

    Sistertime is always the best time! I hope I will live close to my sister as well, once I have my own place.

  48. kayleigh larkins

    I have heard a lot of people talk about taking a hair, skin, and nails vitamin to help with hair growth. I have some wacky tiny postpartum hairs so I should probably take it, too.
