I realize it’s been a while since I posted. It’s been a little crazy, and I’m trying to figure out some fun new things to do on the blog.
So before I begin, I want to ask for some input…
What’s your favorite thing on the blog? Would you like to see something else? Food? Fashion? I’d love to hear from you! So leave me a comment and let me know the things you like, the things you want to see…whatever your opinion is!
This week, it was definitely time to make a hair appointment to get a trim and fix my roots! Remember when I went dark here?
Have you ever had someone do your hair and you just know that no one will ever do it better? That’s how I feel about Lindsay. I’ve always been so afraid of doing anything drastic to my hair. I know it grows back, but in the meantime, if you’ve had a terrible cut, it’s so frustrating to wait for it!
I’ve always had long, same-length hair that had never been dyed. Boring hair. And I was okay with that. I’m an adventurous person, but I just couldn’t bring myself to roll that attitude into my hair.
When I moved here, she went to our church and was recommended by a couple people who had great hair, so I went!
It took me about two cuts with Lindsay to trust her completely. I started with highlights, and I’ve never looked back!
Seriously, you guys. I just make an appointment, walk in the door, sit in the chair, and say, “Do whatever you think, Lindsay.”
And then I leave, get compliments on my hair for the next six weeks, hand out a bunch of her cards, and start the cycle all over again!
Step 1: Grab a chai and sit my rear in the chair (see the chai in the bottom corner?).
Step 2: Brush out the monstrosity.
Step 3: Chat, chat, chat, chat while Lindsay works her magic. We’re great chatters! She’s such a sweet friend, and I love getting to catch up with her. I think all friends should have mandatory appointments like this to hang out with each other!
Step 4: Read my book while I sit under the dryer. Bonus — I get to catch up on my reading!
Step 5: Wash my hair. OH FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT IS GOOD…wash my hair!! It could quite possibly be my absolute favorite thing in the world to have my hair washed. It feels so good! If I had endless funds, I would probably pay someone to wash my hair every day.
Really, I’m not kidding.
Step 5: The cut — Lindsay’s preference. More chatting.
Step 6: Blow out my hair. Second favorite thing — maybe I’d pay someone to blow my hair dry every day, too. Maybe I should get a job just to pay for this???
Step 7: Show off Lindsay’s handiwork! Even the hairstylist next to Lindsay made about 4 comments about how great Lindsay did. Because she’s fantastic I tell you!
Step 8: Head to Zumba and sweat all of the straightness right outta my hair.
But really, you guys. Have you ever just completely trusted the person that does your hair? It’s so freeing! You don’t have to get it dyed, highlighted, or even a major cut. Just the feeling of total trust changes everything! My hair is healthier, shinier, and stronger, because she knows exactly what she’s doing. She refuses to fry someone’s hair just to follow trends. She knows my hair, knows my preferences, and knows just what to do every time.
I used to hate going to get my hair cut because I had so much anxiety, and I never used the same person twice. I was just getting it cut at some discount hair place, so I would just pick the closest one and use whoever was available first. I figured that I was only doing a plain cut, so why spend the money?
Now I know why you spend a little extra money. It does make a difference. Even when I wasn’t dying it, she just cut it better. She gave me layers that made sense and that flowed well into each other, which meant that even just a plain hair style looked better than before.
So thank goodness for Lindsay — the hair miracle worker and a really sweet friend!
Don’t forget to leave comments about the things that you like and don’t like around here! I really want your input and want to know what you like and want to see more of so I can make sure to include those things!
