As a self proclaimed hair chameleon, I was feeling uninspired by my faux ombre (aka let your roots grow out for over a year), parted in the middle style (or lack there of) and so last Friday after work I decided to spice things up a bit. Unlike many who enjoy getting their hair done, I find the whole process quite stressful, mainly due to various traumatic experiences (like my bright red hair that I was convinced made me look like a circus clown!) So I took a chance and tried out a funky salon in my neighbourhood (the homemade robot display in the windows enticed me to enter) and for the first time I really bonded with the hair stylist (we talked about everything from animal rights to plastic surgery) and enjoyed my experience thoroughly (and didn't even flinch when the total was displayed on the cash register!)
At the salon I opted for long choppy bangs, chunky highlights and a trim. I feel much more like myself and am excited to see how a sock bun will look with my new 'do!
And because it's impossible to replicate the perfection of the salon, here I am with my new favourite hair stylist, Carla from Character Salon! (You can see my wash out purple streak if you look closely to the left, I was inspired by her colourful locks!) If you're in the Ottawa area and are looking for a new stylist/salon, I highly recommend Carla at Character! (in Hintonburg)
Do you enjoy going to the hair salon? How often do you change your hairstyle?
