“A woman who cuts her hair is about to change her life.” – Coco Chanel
I’ve always loved change, and one of the easiest things to change is hair. Whether it be a cut or colour, it makes a huge difference. After pregnancy and birthing my precious little moon I felt like I needed a change to commemorate the new journey that I was embarking on, motherhood. I wanted a new look, something classy, fun and easy to maintain.
I was lucky enough to have my friends at Suki’s on West 1st help me out with this life changing moment. I say life changing because that’s exactly what a new hair cut and colour can do to you. Cutting off your hair is liberating, I feel like the more hair you have, the more energy it takes from you. And as a new mom, I can use all the extra energy, hahaha. A hair cut can mark a milestone, the end of a story and the beginning of a new one.
I was pampered as soon as I walked through the doors at Suki’s Kitsilano, a warm hello, and a hot cup of tea. I had an in depth consultation with Colour Designer, Ashley and stylist Paola, to make sure that we were all on the same page about what style/colour would suit me best.
Ashley took into consideration that I wanted a colour that was going to be low maintenance, so we went for a warm brown with some honey/blonde highlights and subtle ombre. The colour is rich and you could never tell that the base is actually dyed. Ashley is highly skilled at selecting colours that will complement your skin tone, eye colour, and suit your desired look.
I knew that I wanted to cut off a whole bunch! So, Paola and I decided that we’d go right up to the collar bone, which was just enough length to still tie it in a cute pony tail if need be. As a new mom, this is the perfect hair style for me because it saves me so much time, from washing to styling. I love that whether I style it or not, it still looks good.
A hair cut and colour not only changes the way you look, but the way you feel. After a great hair cut and colour, I feel sexy, confident and unstoppable. And I just want to thank Ashley, Paola and Ken at Suki’s for being a part of this memorable moment in my life.KITSILANO SALON 604.732.9101 1805 West 1st Avenue
