Fall is here, and it is my absolute favorite time of year. There could be two very distinct reasons why I feel more alive in the fall then I do the rest of the year: First, I was born in October, so I always have another year of life to celebrate. And second, this season is all about change (and I must say that change totally turns me on.)
This fall is special for me, though, because just a few days after I turn twenty-eight, I will marry my love, making this season even more exceptional for me for the entirety of my life.
I am typically changing my hair color consistently, however, I have not colored or cut my hair since January, and I don't plan on doing so until a couple weeks before I walk down the aisle. Even stranger than that, I don't plan on coloring my hair again for over a year after I become the "Mrs."
I'm sure it may seem incredibly strange that a professional hair painter would contradict herself in the way of not even keeping her own hair color up-to-date and changing with the seasons, but there is a big and crazy reason for all of this: I want my hair to grow.
If you were to sit in my salon space and observe my daily clients, you would notice a couple of things: One, I haven't seen most of my clients more than twice for the entire year, and two, the majority of them have super long hair. This is all because I tell most of them that I want to see them bi-seasonally, and it all comes down to my theory: "Get your hair done less, and your hair will grow more." I believe that you should change with the seasons, but you should skip a season now and then and give that hair a breather. Let winter be a time of hair-hibernation and instead of spending time in a salon, spend time in front of the fire with a moisturizing masque on your hair and a cup of something seasonally delicious.
Good color should grow out well, making it easier to embrace the look as the seasons change. I will be posting again next week once my hair has been colored so that you all can see my before and after photos and get the down-low of my hair regimen for this wedding of mine! Stay Tuned!
