it's hair day!

today i'm lucky enough to half a day off work to drive to sacramento to get my hair done. yes, i drive 90+ miles because i'm in love with my stylist, brett, who has been doing my hair for approximately 10 years - aka, my longest relationship? ;) i always want to do something "different", but my ideas below may not actually pan out...

after i'm beautified, i'll drive another 100 miles east to continue on to another gorgeous weekend in lake tahoe. hallelujah! have a fantastic weekend!

I remember the day my dear Stephanie, long time stylist, moved to NYC. I might have cried. And then to be uprooted again to Houston? I am so lucky I found a colorist I love, but still haven't found someone who can fill Steph's shoes. Sigh, what we must do for our hair.
Also, I am gearing up for Blogshop- I am a little intimidated...Anything you would suggest for being prepared? xoxo

haha i totally agree - losing is a stylist is so tragic! glad you found a colorist at least!

and for blogshop, the biggest tip i have would be to get a tablet instead of a mouse, if at all possible. amazon has some that are reasonably priced, and i got this one. (they also sell some refurbished ones that are around $40). i practiced on it for about a week before the class, but it's so neat to be able to write on your photos and use a stylus like a normal pen! it is also a lot easier to retouch when you can just sort of draw on the person you're working on.

also, bring TONS of inspiration images in a folder on your desktop - we made so many cool boards that i used up everything i brought on day 1, so i had to grab some more before the 2nd day!

it's really SO much fun, you will have a great time!

Oh, THANK YOU! I have a tablet, and have been having so much fun practicing. I have been drawing a lot of cupcakes. haha. I am so glad you told me about the inspiration folders. Should be fun to put together!
