A new hair cut

14 Mar

Hi again,

Sorry I haven’t posted again in awhile, but life got in the way I guess. I have been having doctor’s appointments and medical tests/xrays to try to figure out what is going on with my back still. The most recent test was a bone scan on Tuesday which I hope shows something that will explain why I am still in so much pain. But enough about that. Let’s focus on something positive today. 🙂

The other morning (wednesday), I was able to go in to town and get my hair cut. 🙂 I go to Acadamy of Professional Hair Design in Red Deer because they do fantastic work and for a fraction of the cost of regular hair salons. Being unable to work, I can’t really afford to pay the price a regular salon charges so it works out well. Yesterday, I got a really wonderful lady who did an amazing job on my hair. 🙂 I mentioned that I was thinking of getting my hair coloured and she suggested some colours and said she had time if I wanted to get it done right away. I went with one of the colours she suggested and it looks amazing! It is quite neat how a hair cut and colour can make you feel so much better emotionally. 🙂 I feel happier and more confident. 🙂 I don’t have a very good photo of myself yet but here is one that shows the cut really well and sort of shows the colour. I am actually kind of nervous posting a photo of myself here. lol

Now that I have shared a photo of myself and my new hair cut, I really would like to share a little bit more about the lady who did my hair. Her name is Kerstyn. She actually has a business where she is mobile and goes to people’s houses to do your hair/makeup. She is a certified makeup artist and is learning to be a hair stylist at the hair Acadamy. She explained that there are a lot of people who are shut in and can’t get out or moms who can’t get some time to go to a hair stylist. So Kerstyn comes to you. I thought that is such an amazing idea because I know what it is like to be stuck at home and unable to get out of the house. There have been times (even recently) over the past several years that I have wanted to get a hair cut but I just couldn’t manage to get out of the house for that. Getting your hair done is something that somehow makes you feel really good even if you are still in a lot of pain. It is hard to explain I suppose. I just want to share about Kerstyn and her business because I think a lot of people can benefit from it and she did a really great job with my hair. I am very happy with it. 🙂 If you would like to check out her facebook page, here is a link, All About You Feel free to check it out and like her page! 🙂

If you are interested in seeing a before picture, here is what I looked like at the beggining of February before I started getting my hair much shorter (and shortly after I had cut a few inches off my hair already myself). The background on this photo is that I was excited to be wearing my spring coat again and took the photo. I had it cut a bit shorter on Feb 20 before going all the way to what I have left now. 🙂 I wanted to make gradual changes. lol

    Your a such a beautiful soul Heather, and Thank you so much for the amazing words. If you were my one and only client in my career of hairdressing I would consider myself successful. Knowing I had a part in making you feel good is an incredible feeling. Was such a pleasure getting to meet you and can’t wait to get to see you again 🙂
