Hope you had a Happy Halloween fabulous readers! Once again, I find myself asking where has the time gone? It’s now November and soon snow will fly here in the northeast. Yikes! Not quite ready for that. It's wild card week which means we can talk about anything and I thought that instead of specifically recommending a product to you that I've used, I would talk about a recent experience with a hair-cut.
I have always been loyal to my hair dresser, she’s local, I've known her forever and if she can’t see me, some of the other gals in her salon can. She matches my hair color and fills my grays beautifully but admittedly, I’m not always happy with how she cuts my hair. As most of you know, I have naturally curly hair and my natural part is off to the side. She tends to part my hair down the middle and then cut it (I really think it’s the old school method). Once she’s finished and has styled it, the side where my part is still looks a bit too long and weighted down slightly. I sometimes leave not feeling good about my appearance and I question whether I should consider trying someone else.
Well, a few weeks ago, my daughter mentioned she needed a hair-cut and though she sometimes will go my hair dresser as well, she’s not a regular customer. She suggested that we go to a local SuperCuts to fill our instant gratification need. I was very hesitant to say the least since I truly feel an obligation and loyalty to my hair dresser. However, I agreed to give it a try since my hair dresser was closed and I only needed a cut not a color.
SuperCuts has over 2,100 locations in the US and offers the latest cuts and color services without ever needing an appointment. We both immediately got a chair with two young women and they were fabulous! I told her I wanted some more layers, and come up in length about two inches to give my face some new life. Well, I have to say, what a great cut! She parted my hair where the natural part is and gave me just enough layers so that my curls fall softly and frame my face without weighing my hair down. My daughter also loved her cut and we left feeling great about ourselves and our new looks.
So although we sometimes feel a sense of obligation and loyalty to someone else, in the end, it’s about how you feel about yourself (both inside and out). Oh and, yeah, if you are paying for something, shouldn't you be completely satisfied? I will continue to go to my hair dresser as I consider her a friend and she does know my hair. I may even have to come clean to her about where I went, do you think she’ll take a few tips from me? Or should I send her to SuperCuts for some advice?
So remember, don’t settle for something that doesn't make you happy, it’s okay to try something new, but more importantly, take care of yourself.
