Water Works Salon haircut results
Nothing too spectacular to update on here, but I did promise to eventually post a photo of my much needed annual haircut.
I had about four inches taken off, side bangs cut in (they kind of blend in above so it’s hard to tell) and several layers added. I so very much wanted to go with the hairstyle-of-the-moment lob, but I totally chickened out.
And, so far, maybe one person has noticed! Long hair probs for sure.
I left the color the same because I mean, if I can barely find the time and money to get my hair cut once a year, dyeing is just not a viable option. Same for my hesitation to get fringe bangs. I love the look (thanks Jess Day) but the maintenance is just not a viable option for me right now. Maybe later down the road? I chose a style that could grow out past its prime and not look too weird.
I had my hair done by Jessica B. at Water Works Salon and Spa, which has quickly become my favorite in mid-Michigan. I had to interview the owner, Stephanie, for a story about the salon’s expansion to include an academy. Stephanie was incredibly nice, and I’ve never had a bad experience with any of the stylists or receptionists. Niceness goes a long way, people.
Here’s the story I wrote for the paper about the expansion. If you’re interested.
The building is also super cool because – fun fact – it’s actually the city’s old water works facility. The interior is exposed brick and ventilation shafts, so it has an upscale urban vibe with a bit of history. I love local history, which is also why I’m drawn to it.
Also, they offer you coffee as soon as you walk in. Coffee is the way to my heart/ wallet.
It’s not a drastic change, but it’s so nice to be able to brush my hair and not have my fingers get caught in all the dead and dry ends. It looks so much healthier.
Thanks Jessica and Water Works!
