Today I decided to finally go back to a salon for my hair coloring needs. You won't see me with 3 different colors in a month in the near future, and yes, that does make me sad. What doesn't make me sad is the customer experience. I used the trusty google machine to find some worthy salon that would give me the biggest bang for my buck, yet not be super sketchy.
Well, I was satisfied. I am consistently unsatisfied in life. My friend Susan and I have even had deep psychological conversations about why I am so willing to change things. I claim that I am perfectly described by the song "Satisfied" in the musical Hamilton. While some of this may be striving for approval, other parts of it may come from the insecurity of being 30 and still single.
Well I know really cool things are coming and I don't just mean the weather! I thought it was time to invest in me. It was time to say, I'm worth more than a $9 box.
My trusty friend Google sent me to Forum Day Spa and Salon. It was early, the alarm cat woke me up at 3 am, my hair was sticking straight up, I had a mysterious cut on my face, and I had one of those allergy sore throats that screamed fall. I dragged myself up and put my short hair in a small ponytail, attempted to makeup over the cut, and grabbed some tea for the allergy throat. I made my way to the salon, still early, and with Starbucks in hand.
I was very pleased with the absolute ball of energy that surrounded my hair and me. Heather Rogers, had originally planned to take the day off, but she, like me, didn't want to go play in the rain. For the first time in many years, I said just do something that looks nice. I am really not that picky. Some stylists probably love that and others probably want to hit you with a hairbrush. I was loved. Not only was I treated amazing, but I loved my hair.
I feel I am not promoting businesses enough so here it is. This stylist is amazing. Real conversations, hilarious, and talented.
