Day 115 - Beauty School.
Day 115 - Hey ladies. Yes, this post is mainly for the gals out there in the crowd. Men can keep reading but it might blow your mind on the process women go through to make the tresses look fine. Yes, I'm talking hair today ladies. Normally I create something but I am going to turn over the creating process to my very talented stylist Sondra.
Let me give you a little background, I'm getting old. My hair is starting to show signs that I have crossed the intersection of youth and am headed down the boulevard of grey. I was ok with a little wisp of white here and there until a little girl I know said "Mom, you have SO many white hairs on your head!"
So here I am today, at Grove Salon putting my greying hairs in the hands of an exceptionally talented stylist Sondra. Let's talk hair and color. I didn't understand all the options out there. Sondra walked me through the basics. There is hair color, highlights, dual process and balayage. She recommended baylayage for my hair because it gives an overall natural look to the tresses. I asked Sondra about her creative process and it's super interesting. She first assesses the clients needs and wants. Then she decides the color process. Science is brought into mix so she can provide the perfect color for her client. She then needs to apply the color hair and then use toner, timing and foil to create the perfect highlighting. Let me show you a few photos of Sondra's creative process:
It's a mix of art and science for this change to take place. Stylist have a tough job and after hearing Sondra's creative process it made be appreciate her and her talents even more. It made me realize creating goes on around us everyday and we should stop ask how this process takes place. What can we learn from those around us that create everyday?
I'm going to now go ask my daughter what she thinks of my new color. I bet she will agree that it's perfect. Thanks Sondra!
