They say a new haircut can change your outlook…and I have to say, I completely agree! First, it’s in the moment: the feeling of being pampered; of doing something nice for yourself in the midst of our busy lives. For someone who doesn’t get their hair cut often, maybe every 6 months to a year, it is such a treat to have a luxurious salon experience. It’s like pressing the reset button on a tired mindset (and tired hair). And the glow of the new ‘do doesn’t stop in the chair, but continues as compliments roll in weeks after you submit your locks to the blade. Chop chop!
So, it was about time to trade in my long, dark winter look for a lighter, more summery feel. I strolled down King Street and up a flight of stairs to the most beautiful salon in town, at least in my opinion. Using only Aveda products, Lordis Loft is a sunlight-drenched, tranquil space to unwind for a variety of salon treatments. The last time I visited, I was treated to an amazing Elemental Nature massage: read about it here.
I have only dyed my hair once before, but I decided to get a jump start on the sun’s rays by adding a few streaks of blonde. I never really know what to do with my hair and have had the same cut since middle school, so I’m the kind of person who sits in the chair and says, “do what you think looks best!” The sweet and inspiring owner, Linzie did an expert job with the highlights and cut and I’m pretty thrilled with the results. Hope you enjoy my #transformationtuesday 🙂
