This last weekend I had the chance to go and see first hand at “CHAZ” (recently renamed "CHOP" for "Capital Hill Organized Protest" )...
To say the least, it really was an eye-opening experience. You could feel the energy in the air. There were so many people from every type of communities. It was very inspiring to see all these people (and I don’t like crowds) but I felt totally safe. While all around the country people are hurting in so many ways and angry at for so many (mostly valid) reasons, the positive vibe was surprising - and amazing.
The "Hairline Rescue Kit" Story
Hello! While my February blog was sidetracked after vacation by the sudden emergence of COVID-19 crisis that has kept us shut down since mid-March, you should have been receiving my weekly emails offering the "Hairline Rescue Kits" available for pick-up on Saturdays (and yes, including next Saturday, April 18th and every one after that until we are open unless otherwise noted). As the cover photo today represents, most of us have our hair telling us the same thing - HELP! I have to admit that I was a bit nervous about providing these to our guests at first, but not only has the feedback been overwhelmingly positive, I find myself really benefiting from the chance to stay connected with you during this break. I guess you don't really know how much you miss the daily interaction from behind the chair until you are forced to stay away.
Happy New You!
Today’s blog comes from a different perspective. This is typically the time of year we are encouraged to take our wins and losses of the previous year - evaluate them and then create goals to make the New Year better than before. Well today I challenge you to look a little deeper, because there are no Do-Overs, only “Do it Again”, and make it better.
What I Hear You Saying…
The leaves are turning color and slowly dropping quickly now. There is a chill in the morning air and the midday sunshine leaves us reminiscing for our warm weather. As we enjoy the beautiful interlude between summer and winter, our dry hair is also showing us it’s time for a change. These days in the salon I hear from guests – I’m feeling really DRY! My hair looks MOUSEY! My hair is so FLYAWAY! It looks DULL! Other than the usual culprits due to summer sun and fun – these are the confessions I hear.
How do You Share Hair Loss and Scalp Concerns With Your Stylist?
Later this month, our very own Thia will be traveling to Atlanta for a two-day “Hair Loss Education” as part of a commitment we are making to making Studio 16 your go-to salon for hair and skin health in Central Washington. It’s a topic we’ll be sharing more about in the coming months.
While planning this with Thia, I was reminded of something that we’ve never directly addressed with our readers – how do you have a conversation about scalp issues, hair loss or other hair and skin problems?
One thing I’ve learned over the years is that it’s never easy for my guest – or me! – to start that conversation.
But with our hands and eyes on your scalp every few weeks, we do see everything and are sometimes aware of problems before you are. But we also know that doesn’t mean you want to talk about it in the salon at that point in time.
