The last time I went to the hairdressers, the leaves were still falling so after seeing how horrid my roots looked, I decided that it was time for a change. This past weekend, the fabulous Carly of Character Salon (who rocks purple & teal hair like no other) performed her magic (she's the first hairdresser who has given me perfect blonde highlights without a toner). I was excited when she suggested styling it curly (because lord knows my idea of 'curling' ends up in kinks and burns) and she used a straightening iron and zero hairspray (how does she do it?) to create the bouncy waves. I will try my best to duplicate the style but hair never seems to look as good as when you're fresh out of the salon.
There's something about a new haircut that just makes you feel fabulous, I may soon become one of those monthly 'blowdry' only clients so that I can get that salon look without paying full price.
Another reason I decided to freshen up my hair, was to accept an award on Saturday night. I was nominated for and was one of two winners of the Vagina Warrior Award, recognizing my community work to end violence against women. I was presented with the award at the Ottawa Vagina Monologues show and I was beaming with nervous excitement (I addressed the auditorium after intermission, conquering my fear of public speaking one speech at a time!) & pride.
