So I got a wonderful email from local artist James Kelsey (you know him, he creates the FAB metal sculptures, that are beautiful as well as relevant) who reminded me to update our blog. I am grateful for this (yes, being told our last blog was 3 month’s old and looks tired, in a nice way of course) because it reminded me how wrapped up I was at work and the need to not forget the basics of my business, of which this blog and website are a huge part.
It also was a great reminder that as people we get wrapped up in the daily grind and forget about ourselves. How many of us forget about updating our look to represent who we are today? Change doesn’t have to come in huge sweeping forms. Even subtle changes representing this growth will do; switching the part in your hair, going from side swept bangs to Betty Page bangs, A-symetrical bangs etc., can totally change a girl’s outlook. Maybe a couple of signature peek-a-boo swatches of color, panels of something you can hide at the office and whip out at night. How bout for those with perfect one length hair this time maybe shattering in the line at the ends for a different kind of movement. It doesn’t have to be a huge commitment… what? Four weeks til it’s grown out?
All these suggestions are great for the commitment-phobe due to their reversability at your next appointment. Trust me, try it! it also helps people not box you into one look when you change it up, even a little. Women are too multifaceted to be boxed in by other’s perceptions.
So I will end this blog with again thanking the universe for looking out for me, and the ‘little’ things in life as well as the ‘huge’. For my loyal friends and family and to you, the Salon’s “Mia Familia”, a big wet air kiss. To James Kelsey for calling us out, thanks for the reminder to stay in the here and now.
