My tale of woe when it comes to salons is long. The ones who speak English well are too costly and often, too bossy. Others push chemical processes and "treatments" so determinedly they never give you a moment's peace. And as for the aunty and uncle salons... less done the better.
Oh, and one final complaint. I do NOT appreciate being asked out by a guy who's holding a pair of scissors to my head. Not only is it unprofessional, it makes me uncomfortable and how on earth do you say "no"?
So when I met Tom of Hair Atelier at the Pantene Blogger's Tea Party (which will get a full write-up when P&G send me my pics - yes, ladies this is blackmail) and had a chat with him I was thrilled to finally meet someone I could trust my hair to. It's long and been with me for a decade. The hair deserves some respect.
The full review of the Hair Atelier will turn up on So Loverly in a week or so (will update), I just wanted to give you girls a sneak preview as, for me, this is a pretty drastic change to my appearance. Already I can see it affecting my styling choices.
Do I miss my long hair? Yes... a little. It made me stand out and while this cut's prettier I feel a little more ordinary. But change is good and hair grows.
ps. My hair's still straight. Tom gave the ends some curl while blowdrying for whimsy. Thank heavens it looks ok when it air-dries straight.
