Anna Durrett

Hi, I’m Anna. I’m a mom, blogger, and Boston-based hairstylist who specializes in kid’s haircutting.

I started this blog in 2014 when I was adjusting to life as a new mom and had to leave my job. After the birth of my son in 2015, I decided to leave my job permanently and work as a full-time blogger. This gave me more time to spend with my son. I also had the opportunity to write in my free time and share my parenting journey with other moms who might need some guidance.

“Parenting is a journey—no science can replace the value gained by experience.”

— Anna Durrett

I love reading child development studies because they help me better understand my kids and give me ideas about how to raise them. But that doesn’t mean I stop leading with my heart – I still want my kids to grow up kind and empathetic.

That’s why I want to help you raise your child. You may just need a little guidance to uncover your parenting confidence.
