You need to trust him or her. He or she needs to know how to make you feel beautiful, make you feel good. They need to know what’s best for you. They can not be selfish. They need to take care of you as if you were as fragile as a baby bird. They need to talk to you, and in turn really listen to what you have to say. Communication is key with this person. They are one of the most important people in your life.
No, not your significant other.
Your hair stylist!
I recently visited the gang over at Rock, Paper, Scissors Salon on Newbury Street courtesy of the amazing ladies at Healthworks (thanks again!) They very wonderfully squeezed me in after work on a Friday evening so my hair could look gorgeous for a Friday night out on the town for a Friday night watching the Celts play in my apartment. Hey Colin and some of the girls came over so at least they could appreciate it!
Anyway, I walked into the stylish salon and immediately felt ‘cool’ (surprisingly I don’t always feel cool – I know I know, it’s very surprising.) The vibe you get from the exposed brick walls, to the interesting photographs that decorate the walls, is ‘effortlessly hip.’ The salon manager Tracey was so friendly and made me felt at ease right away (it’s always nerve-wracking trying out a new salon!) My hair stylist was Mia, and not only was she talented and extremely nice (she even got me a coffee from Starbucks when I was waiting for my color to finish – ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! SO friggin nice. I loved it) she was also cute, bubbly and made nice but not forced conversation. I appreciate that when I’m getting my hair done!
And now…the hair. I loved it! It came out great. Subtle highlights, a great cut and a perfect blowout. Mia was thebomb.com. And, I also bought some fabulous products before I left. I NEVER do this. I actually always make fun of my sister Meg for doing this. However, I am a big girl now and hardly own anything to put in my hair, so I bought some hair clay and hair tonic (all their products are made with SPF, so I thought this would be good for the summer!) Overall, I highly suggest RPS.
