Hello Darlings, With a cup of fresh brewed coffee and a soothing end of day bath, it’s sinking in how I avoided the ultimate hair catastrophe. Despite being in the trusted hands of Exit Salon’s Rob and Jan, making a “big change” to cut off 4 inches of my hair was still nerve wracking!
Although I trust my stylist, I was still speechless as his scissors gently skimmed across my hair line. Just like that, 4 inches of my beloved hair were strewn across the floor! Not really sure how to feel, I stared blank at the mirror in front as Jan continued to even out my hair line. No more layers, no more length, just a clean line falling slightly below my shoulders.
With dozens of shoes and no attachment issues, I am contemplating why women are so attached to their hair? And in particular, why is the length such a big deal? After all, hair does grow back! Yet, panic reigns when scissors are involved, to the extent that I would prefer my hair end up green before I would want to lose inches!
The catalyst for my big change is soon I will appear in another hair care video for Dove Canada, showing how their shampoo and conditioner maintain my hair colour. And in the meantime, after a few days living with much shorter hair, I am loving this length! It could have been a tragedy, but maybe most important is that the change was made with friends that I trust (Rob and Jan from Exit Salon recently relocated to join Blyss Salon on Bellair Street in Yorkville – message me if you want their contact info) who made me feel safe and re-assured me the results would be great. Thanks guys!
