My last hair appointment was March 23rd. With shorter hair I usually go every 6 weeks for a cut and highlights to cover my gray. Two days after I visited Hailey at Bliss — salons were closed. I knew it would be awhile until I could visit again and honestly I was fine with that. I want everyone to be safe.
Hair on a woman is a funny thing. Maybe I phrased that incorrectly. A woman’s hair is one of those things that if her hair isn’t right nothing is right. I honestly didn’t have too bad of a time until the past week and then it was just driving me nuts. I could not get it to do anything and my bangs were in my eyes all the time. Plus it was super humid and my hair + humidity = straight hot mess.
Thank goodness Bliss called me and I was able to go in for an appointment on Thursday. What a glorious day. It might have been circled in red on my calendar.
I was happy with all of their procedures — hand sanitizer, temperature taken, masks required by all customers and staff, staff wearing plastic shields, limited stylists and customers, plexiglass by the counter, no hair dryers, everything being sanitized often. It was odd having a mask on while getting my hair washed, colored and cut but it worked. No issues. But then Hailey is a professional and has great attention to her customers so she made the experience great.
So where did the 23 pounds come it? Somewhere I read a meme that getting your hair cut during COVID-19 meant you would automatically lose 20 pounds. Hailey said I lost 23 even though we really didn’t cut that much hair I would be happy if that was true to counteract the pounds I am sure I have gained due to stress eating.
So tell me– what has been the most difficult thing for you recently? Are you like me and just happy for the little things now? Being able to have my hair cut was certainly a luxury and I am happy that I am now not scaring small children.
