This little girl cut her own hair because it was "too extra."

so cute and if any of you do this...โ€ฆ...just know, it will grow back

[04/18/20]   Keeping my fingers crossed, Iโ€™m going to start booking people for May.

So....clients are getting antsy & I sent this to one of them this morning because she wanted to know what kind of box color to buy. This is a better, temporary solution that washes out. Iโ€™ve used it, itโ€™s easy and works well & you only need to spray it where you can really see your gray like your part & hairline. My advice is do NOT use store bought, box, permanent color!! You can get this spray at Kings, Target, Walmart, Walgreens.

๐Ÿ˜˜ repost @alicia.the.alchemist ...

Today, I did the most sentimental blowdry yet of my career. I have been blessed to have this client for several years. When she first started coming to me, we would chat a little bit during our time together. Nothing too heavy, just about the weather and how our days were going. Fairly quickly though the verbal communication became less and less and we both enjoyed quiet relaxation time when we were together. I soon learned from her daughter that she was progressing in dementia, which made sense as to why we didnโ€™t chat during our appointments anymore. I really look forward to our time together though. Cut and color every 4 weeks and weekly shampoo and blowouts in between. My most frequent guest. We havenโ€™t made small talk in a few years. Eventually a caregiver started accompanying her to her appointments. My client would sit in the chair and just trust me to take care of her. No consultation needed. She just depended on me to do whatever she needed. Today, as my assistant was shampooing her hair, I was told by her caregiver that my most wonderful client wouldnโ€™t be coming back next week. Her and her husband need more full time assistance and will be moving a few hours away to be closer to their kids. It hit me hard. It hit me even harder when I heard that my client didnโ€™t know that this would be her last appointment with me and that we werenโ€™t going to tell her so that she wouldnโ€™t get sad. I understood. Dementia is complicated and upsetting. But let me tell you, I couldnโ€™t help but cry as I blowdried her hair for the last time. My client keeps her eyes closed during the blowdry as she relaxes so I knew she wouldnโ€™t see my tears, and I turned my chair so no one else in the busy salon would see either. But I privately cried as I gave her the best blowdry I could provide for the last time. I made sure to pull myself together before I turned the blowdryer off which would signal her to open her eyes. I had to blowdry my last section for a while because of that. When I glanced at her in the mirror as I blowdried she sat there peacefully, eyes closed, with a soft smile on her face. I wanted to tell her how much I appreciated her and that I would miss our peaceful visits together. I wanted to wish her the best, but instead I just said โ€œIโ€™ll see you soon!โ€ And I went to the break room and let it all out. I cried so much. And as I told my salon team why I was crying I could see the understanding in their eyes because they have felt the same way about their clients. One of the stylists expressed it perfectly when she said, โ€œAnd people think we JUST do hair.โ€ โฃโฃ
If you are a client of mine currently or have been in the past, please know that the connections I have made with you mean more to me than I can say. Itโ€™s not about hair. I appreciate you and love you all, thank you for letting me be a part of your lives.โฃโฃ
โ€ขI originally posted this one year ago today. I still think about this guest often and am so so grateful for the impact that she and this experience had on me.

[07/14/19]   I remember the (young) good ole days of getting a client under the dryer with hi-lights and then running to shove 4 bites of something in my mouth and now 2 kids and many years later itโ€™s running to pee on turbo ๐Ÿ˜‚ no more holding it for 8 hours... pretty close.....keeping a little tighter for as the night goes on.....

[05/03/19]   Yay! The sun is back. Have a great weekend everyone!

[04/18/19]   So......Spring is a time of renewal, new beginnings, growth....If I've learned anything in my 20+ years doing hair is that, making a change....even a small one, can change how you feel dramatically. You can cut it, curl it, color it, straighten it, put it up, wear it down, scarf it, braid it...โ€ฆ.but whatever you do, change it up once in a while! If I don't know how to do it, I can figure it out, learn it, do it....If you need a change or just need to freshen up for spring give me a holla! text 720-771-4800 for an appointment Let's get ready for Spring/Summer 2019!
