Welcome to Barefoot Blonde! My name is Amber Fillerup Clark and this is my online diary where I document all things from lifestyle, beauty, travel to fashion. Barefoot Blonde began as a place for me to share my hairstyles and daily outfits. At a young age, I used my hairstyles as a creative outlet to express my personal style and I wanted to share that with others.

After almost 9 years, Barefoot Blonde has now grown into a place where I document my journey as a twenty-something mom and woman trying to understand this crazy thing we call life.

I currently live in Arizona with my husband David, two kids Atticus and Rosie and our dog Chauncey. We are expecting our 3rd child next year, so excited! Being a mom is always my first priority, but when I am not with my kids I am working on my blog or I am running my business Barefoot Blonde Hair. Barefoot Blonde Hair is my clip-in hair extension company. I started the company with my husband in 2016 and it has been such an amazing journey.

The best piece of advice I have been given, is to create a life where you never have to ‘work’ because you enjoy what you do so much. Writing this blog and running Barefoot Blonde Hair has been such a joy to me and I am so thankful to my readers for giving me the opportunity to do what I love everyday.

Here I will share with you my daily thoughts, hair tutorials, travel tips and style advice. From my more personal posts to my beauty posts, I hope Barefoot Blonde inspires you to learn something new, express yourself through your style and celebrate what makes you unique.

What colors do you use in your hair?

I ALWAYS break my base with a 7N and then use bleach with 30 volume developer for the highlights! For every two highlights I pull one lowlight through with the 7N! If that makes no sense to you, thats okay, just tell all of that to your hair dresser!

How tall are you?

I am 5’10
