Last week Sassoon Salon generously invited me over to their South Coast Plaza location for a cut and color! Already fed up with my hair and with my hairdresser being so out of the way from me, I thought why the hell not. I wasn't really sure what to expect either, so I was somewhat nervous but was greeted so kindly by Tani, the assistant creative director. I showed her these hair inspiration pictures (one and two) and tried to explain in much detail as possible how complicated my hair is. Natural-born coarse waves are a nightmare in itself.
She then told me her vision for my hair and directed me to my hair-colorist, Adriana. They had an acutely confusing pow-wow using hair-people lingo, but I just told them I trusted them. Four hours later, I left the salon feeling like a cooler version of myself and learned valuable tips that I've never conceptually understood in magazines until they demonstrated for me. Apparently spraying 'surf-spray' throughout your hair is better than leaving your house sans product. Thank you so much Adriana, Tani, and Audrey for the amazing experience.
