Can you believe that it is almost time to go back to school?!? Where did our summer go? Hopefully you did something fun with friends or your family. Our family spent the summer traveling the state as our two kids represented Hartsville while participating in their favorite sports.

As we are making final preparations for a new school year, we’ve been sure to add a few beauty checkboxes to our list. I’m happy to share with you, some of our favorite back to school beauty traditions.

A fresh haircut is always on my son’s list, he loves a close clipper cut and loves the American Crew 3 in 1 shampoo, conditioner, and body wash. Guys are always so easy! As for my daughter, back to school manicure and pedicures are always a must and honestly it is a fun tradition. We also love the liquid dermabrasion facial to have a fresh face for the first day! Finally, a little balayage gives a natural enhancement to those summer highlights and she is ready to tackle a new year!

As for mom, I always love a schedule and a routine and sometimes I feel like the summer is a little chaotic so the first couple of weeks always allow me to schedule some pamper time of my own. First up will be a dermaplaning session followed by an hour massage. I always put myself last so I make sure to rebook the next appointment when I am done so that I can recharge myself the next month.

After we have all our checklists completed, we love to have a family dinner the night before schools starts to discuss our goals for that year. I always love getting to hear what is important to the kids and we like checking in to see what we were able to accomplish.

I hope you and your family have a wonderful school year!
