The reason I got into hairstyling all those years ago was to help people feel good. Nothing says bliss as whiling away a few hours being pampered at a salon. They're comfortable, they smell good, the people are nice.
While I spent 17 years behind the chair, I never tired of my job but even when I was getting my hair done, it was always a rush job because you're taking up valuable money making time. Now that I am out of the industry I am doubly aware what an amazing privilege it is to visit a salon.
The sheer amount of wizardry I had to perform to have my days off meet up with a free spot in Alison's schedule.... I was two days away from hiring an old priest and a young priest to exorcise my roots. But luckily the lovely Alison was able to see me last week. Just in time for a series of photoshoots and official events.
While I was making the roots work for me, I wanted that extra level of spit and polish for my up coming events.
Nothing says Glamourous like a plastic bag on your head and a shapeless black gown.
But the end results of shiny, smooth hair are well worth it! Thanks Alison! xox
