It’s really hard to carve out some “me time,” really hard. So hard that I typically just skip it. That includes getting my hair done. I have been blessed with super think (I mean super think) healthy hair, and I tend to take advantage of that and just let it go. I have been known to go a year + without seeing a stylist. Even on a more “regular” schedule it is like two-three times a year. (I know, I know…)
While I used to be a natural blonde, eons ago, my hair continues to get darker and darker. Although I still have a few natural blonde streaks in it, it isn’t enough for me. So my motivation usually comes when I see a picture of how dark my hair has gotten, then it is straight to the salon.
Things were getting pretty dark up there, so last minute I left the kids with my husband and headed up to Hair Cuttery to take care of business and enjoy a bit of “mommy time.” Getting my hair done is a quite a time commitment - three hours. And it is always fun to see the reaction I get from a new stylist when they inspect my hair. (I am telling you, I have a lot of hair.) It is inevitable that at some point in the coloring process I always hear these words, “I am going to have to mix up some more color.” Makes me laugh.
Wondering how long it has been since I got my hair done? I last had my hair done for my sister’s wedding… six months ago. It was to my chin.
I had a lot of time to observe while sitting in the chair and under the dryer, and I was amazed at how many people came in and out. A couple with a brand new baby, a dad with his young kids, a pregnant mom getting her last trim in before the baby, a couple of teenage girls and many more. It was a busy Sunday at Hair Cuttery.
Most people came in for a quick cut, but some (like me) lasted longer getting a color or other process. (Did you know Hair Cuttery offers a lot more than cuts including coloring, waxing and texturizing services?)
Getting your hair highlighted is such a glamorous process, don’t ya think?
Finally my “me time” was over, and it was time to head home to show off my updated look – lighter, brighter and a little trim. Whatcha think?
While you can walk right into Hair Cuttery without an appointment, and it seemed most people did this while I was there. I actually made an appointment before I went – I don’t like waiting. I also discovered that Hair Cuttery lists its current promotions on its site, so you should definitely check there before you go too!
