Guys. My hair is about to undergo some major renovation and I’M DYING.
A couple of months ago I talked about the kind of cut I was lusting for and you guys gave a bunch of suggestions and a whole lot of motivation. Now, I’m taking action.
I decided to get all the action done from SLaM, relatively new but already one of the best known salons in Dubai for cuts and color. The salon has a really non-stuffy vibe, very industrial (you know how I love a brick wall) and just my kind of place. I had my appointment with Gemma and I’ve never liked a consultation more. She was warm, welcoming and most of important of all, brilliantly grasped everything I said in seconds. I knew she was the one.
This is what we talked and locked down.
Haircut: I’ve decided I want a blunt chop. No angled stuff, no up down action, no layers. A haircut that means business and my heart has confirmed that that’s exactly what it wants. SUPPORT ME. Gemma and I decided that we’d keep my hair length at a couple of inches below my shoulder to balance my face shape (and current size, thanks fried chicken).
Hair color: I hadn’t planned on going for a color change but so many of you pumped me on that I decided I’d do it. Gemma suggested a deep, dark red that would look black in low light but reflect color otherwise. I used to color my hair red (and a lot of other shades too) very, very long ago and always loved it, so I was up for it again like a ninja.
My appointment is now on April 10th and it’s just 4 days out (!!!!!) and I’m losing my mind. I haven’t had such a short cut EVER (not counting the tragic man-bob my mother forced onto my soul in my childhood). I NEED YOUR ENCOURAGEMENT. PLEASE HELP.
I’ll snapchat the salon trip and the revamp process, you can join me there. ID:shehzeen-r
