A Year of Gratitude #96: NEW HAIR!!!
I went today and got my hair cut for the first time in over a year. I can't even remember the last time I had it cut... it was so very long ago. To say that my hair was in DESPERATE need of a trim and some TLC is an understatement.
Steve got me the name and card for a stylist at the barber shop that he goes to. I decided to call today and see about getting in this afternoon for a cut. Steve was able to come home early today, so I could go and leave Gus here.
When I called the barber shop, I learned that the girl that he had been told to have me call, doesn't work on Thursdays or Sundays. I decided to look on Yelp and see what was close.
Taylor Brooks Salon is just down the street from us, and had been recommended to me from Leslie in MOMS Club. She said they do awesome work and she's been going there for a while. I decided to call and see about an appointment for today.
Thankfully, I was able to get an appointment for 2:30 today with Mary. Steve got home and I took some "before" pictures. I had just put Gus down for a nap, so I felt good about leaving.
When I arrived at the salon, I was given a tour and was treated so nicely. They have a Four Square check in for new clients, and I automatically saved 10% off my total just for checking in! :-)
When I told Mary that I wanted to chop off all my hair, she cringed and suggested that I not cut off too much, and just get it looking healthy. She said for my face, I'd look better with longer hair (which I already knew) and she said she could remove all the dry/damaged hair, touch it up and give me some texture and depth, and it'd look great... and I wouldn't have to chop it all off.
I was in one of those, "I don't give a crap" moods... and I'm glad she was so good about it. I'd be having regrets come tomorrow had I chopped it all off. Thankfully, it's still long enough to be pulled back, but it looks healthier and feels so much better.
I'm thankful that I found a great salon, and thankful that Steve came home early so I could go and get my haircut. It was much needed and so appreciated.
