Back from the Salon


{from my imac/photo booth …in my unfinished & messy office/studio/closet/dressing room}

While I usually wait at the least 4 months to see my stylist …out of nothing but pure laziness, I looked at my hair last Thursday and all I saw was drab, brassy tangles with dark roots {and admittedly, in those dark roots sprouted a few grays, ghastly!}. Granted, I was on my period, which always seems to drain not only my face of color leaving my complexion gray, it makes my hair fug too. I immediately texted Nikki and made an appointment for today, which I’m pretty sure is a record for me. I know this because, of course, I blogged about it on February 17, exactly 2 months ago …and it’s a record because I am really horrendously lazy when it comes to lady maintenance. It’s really a good thing that I’m blonde to the core because I’d hate to see what my eyebrows and leg hair would look like if I weren’t. Beastly, I’m sure.

Go see my stylist, Nikki. She’s amazing {and unbelievably affordable} 818-421-4738 …and tell her I sent you 🙂

    It looks great, you look great!

    I’m exactly like you when it comes to hair maintenance, it almost pains me to have to go get it done and the kicker is the stylist is my best friend. I have decided I’m letting mine go all natural and stopping highlights which totally cuts down on time spent in the chair, but it’s a work in progress!

    BTW, boo to AF last week, I’m in the same TTC boat as you and I also experienced that last week, UGH!

    you look FANTASTIC!! I love the picture with your arms crossed! ‘lady maintenance’ …ugh it can really all get tiring to keep up with all the time LOL {except pedis!!}. I went to get my eyebrows done a few weeks ago, and the lady that I have been going to for two years, and nothing ever went wrong before….BURNED me this time. ack. so now I dont know what to do. Risk it and go to her again. Never get my eyebrows done again. Or find someone new. ahhh decisions.

    longest, no point comment ever. Hold the applause. 😉

    Hope you are having a great weekend!

    Hey Maegan,
    I thought since your into fashion and art you may want to check out my fashion illustration blog. I am having a giveaway of one of my illustrations that was originally published in Mirabella Magazine.

    How do you make your picture move like that!? That’s amazing. And where is your stylist? I’d love to inquire…

    i do the same thing about putting off seeing my stylist until the last moment. Now I am in search for a new one because I moved to a new town but in general the whole process is always so draining for me..ahah! That is why I always get a latte when I am there 🙂

    I love your hair..beautiful. And I love your blog!…It is such a nice break in the day to check your site. Thank you.

    I like the post you did on showing off your closet (so cool!) and I love your DIY projects.

    I thought you might be interested checking out a great DIY earring organizer I made this weekend…because it is about jewelry and DIY 🙂 I had so much fun making it.

    Well I’m sure with your grays you were gorgeous! Love the color. How funny, I just did a post the other day about my “feeling a little grey!” And then I got my hair colored. I took some after pics! I loved how you snapped a pic in the chair!

    The color looks great. I’m currently debating what to do next… I was growing mine out for so long to donate, that I just am drawing a blank now that I have choices.

    Do I dye a darker brown (goodbye, stray grays!)? Go red again (because I love it)? Do some golden highlights (and pretend Seattle sunshine is powerful enough to do it)?

    Seriously at a loss… your input is always welcome.
