Many of you knew I got two doses of the Pfizer Covid vaccine in early 2021 and that the second dose kicked my butt. My second dose was about 12:30 pm and by 10:30 I couldn’t pinpoint what exactly, but something felt off. By 3:30 am the body aches and chills and sweats had keptContinue reading “Holy Vaccine Response, Batman”

We did it!
Folks… we did it! We’ve officially filled our first box to send back to Green Circle for recycling!!! I have no idea how much it actually weighs but I had a hard time lugging it through the salon building to my suite for its scheduled pickup today. Everything in that box would have ended upContinue reading “We did it!”
Well that was one heck of a rollercoaster
I like to think I’ve generally been careful throughout the whole pandemic. During such unprecedented times it’s hard to know what the “right” choice really is, or even if there’s one at all. Are you ready for this rollercoaster with me? It starts on Sunday, August 15. I’ve already canceled my plans to see theContinue reading “Well that was one heck of a rollercoaster”

I’m switching to Olaplex!
A while back I wrote about the differences between Olaplex and B3, and why I was using B3 instead of Olaplex. My main hang up that pushed me towards the B3 over the Olaplex initial was that the Olaplex had the second step that just took extra time we don’t always have. In my previousContinue reading “I’m switching to Olaplex!”

I was due for a color change anyway and this provided me a great opportunity to also test out some colors. These colors were all applied at the same time on February 15. I shampooed my hair and dried it without using conditioner. I applied the Vivids in a triangle shape on the top panelContinue reading “Reds in real life”
As I had to send out yet *another* message to clients about a potential exposure on my end, I was working through some pretty heavy feelings of guilt and feeling responsible for this happening yet again. I mean, if I really was being careful I wouldn’t have to keep having this conversation, right? I knowContinue reading
Appointment Protocol Updates: 3/15/2021
The weather is starting to show signs of getting warmer. We’ve been social distancing and wearing masks for a year and I know we’re all tired of having to do it. But exposures to Covid aren’t going away anytime soon, and almost seem to be hitting closer and closer to home and coming more frequentlyContinue reading “Appointment Protocol Updates: 3/15/2021”
Leaf and Flower shampoo/conditioner follow up
Back on December 16 I introduced you to the Leaf and Flower line I brought into my suite. The rep for the company I had met with before I purchased any stock was telling me about the pretty awesome results that she had gotten using just the L+F shampoo and conditioner, where the stylist sheContinue reading “Leaf and Flower shampoo/conditioner follow up”
