Is there a better way to get rid of the winter blues than making an appointment at your favourite hair salon in Ottawa, for the purpose of finding a new you? That is exactly what I thought last week when I caught my reflection in the window as I gazed at the snow outside.
It seems I am not the only woman desiring a change in looks at this time of year. As there are only a few weeks of winter left, February is indeed the ideal time to begin thinking of ways to look your best this spring!
Changing our hair, and thus a substantial part of outward appearance, is so easy when we have experts at hand, right here at our favourite hair salon in Ottawa. So why not join the flowers as they bloom, and the sun as it shines, by finding a new hairstyle that suits you perfectly and that will surprise yourself and your friends as well?
As you prepare your transformation from hibernating city resident to spring social butterfly, a great first step is to begin looking at fashion and beauty magazines, or seeking out images of your favourite celebrity, and find a look you would like to try this year.
Since a picture is worth a thousand words, bringing clippings or saving pictures on your smartphone will ensure your hairstylist will see exactly the overall style that you would like to outwardly reflect.
However, an excellent hairstylist has the ability to adapt a particular hairstyle to one’s unique face, bone structure, hair texture, as well as daily morning routine. Indeed, an important question when considering a hairstyle is the amount of time we have to style it each day.
Of course, we are not all Anna Wintour and we are not all driven in a limousine to our hair salon in Ottawa each morning (wouldn’t that be fun for a few days though?)
The funny thing about bringing a picture to my hairstylist is that no matter what hairstyle I set my mind to, I always see women who have just had their hair styled before me leaving the salon and I say to myself: “now THAT is what I want!”
Luckily, I have such great communication with everyone at my favourite hair salon in Ottawa that I can chat away about my hair expectations for a very long time, and everyone joins in the fun. Who knows who I will become when I walk out the doors?
No matter how long or short, wavy or straight, as long as I am happy with the reflection I haphazardly catch in the window, that is all that matters.
