Hey all! Let’s catch up and chat for a minute!
On Friday, I went to see my hairstylist to discuss short hair options. We chatted and looked at pictures for a few minutes along with discussing what exactly is going on with my hair. Or not going on with my hair. Meh. She made me feel tons better and I scheduled an appointment with her that day. It’s not till next week but it’s going to happen.
And I’m still nervous AF. What if it makes me look even pudgier? What if it makes me look like a dude? What if it’s too short?
GUYS. Honestly, I’m normally never like this about a hair cut because it’s just hair. It grows back. I’ve never stressed over hair cuts or worried about bad styles.
Now I’m a hot mess wondering what I’m going to look like.
However I really trust my stylist and I’m going to go in with confidence and leave the same way. It might take some getting used to but I’m going to rock that short hair but good.
(Let’s give the stylist and salon a quick plug!) My stylist is Samantha Gale over at Gallipot Salon. Samantha is awesome! She’s friendly, chatty, and knows hair. She’ll listen to you about what you want and your needs. She also really understands fine hair and how to work in some layers. The salon is one of the best that I’ve been to in Fort Collins. It’s right in midtown, a few doors down from Black Bottle. They use more natural products that aren’t harsh on your hair. Plus they have a very relaxing hair wash station (with twinkle lights!!) and a dedicated color room where you can look at the foothills as you get your hair colored.
Seriously, the best. The 5 years that I’ve lived here, I’ve been constantly searching out a salon and stylist. I finally feel like I’ve found a solid place! So if you’re still in that search for a good salon check out Gallipot and see what you think.
In other news, I have a tattoo scheduled for next month, one that I’ve been waiting a long time to get. However, I found another functional med doctor in town that I’m thinking of checking out. This place doesn’t take insurance, so everything is out of pocket and it’s on the expensive side.
The initial visit is the most expensive but that visit is also two hours long. Which is awesome.
So I may need to cancel my tattoo appointment and put that money towards doctors’ visits for right now. A little bummed out but also, I should probably be an adult and do the responsible thing.
Getting on the path to healthy needs to be top priority right now.
So let’s chat about you! How are you doing and what’s going on in life?
