I’m positive I am not the only mother who has pushed a hair appointment back a little too long! Life gets busy, schedules get over-crowded and you simply forget how long it has been since you had a trim or a colour was. This is my life constantly, however, mine was usually due to guilt. I had guilt for the money I’d be spending and the time I was taking for me and not the kids. I needed help moving past my guilt and achieving my hair goals!
The next thing you know the split ends are unruly. You notice that every day is a top knot day. The thought of “doing” your hair is more work than putting on pants each day! This is why Sheena Bligh of Proper Hair Lounge is officially my favourite person in the hair world! She’s that stylist I can share my daily routine with, what I don’t like and walk out looking like a million bucks!
After a good solid year of not cutting or colouring my hair, I sat down in Sheena’s chair and gave her creative freedom to work her magic. This is my preferred way of getting my hair done, it has certainly backfired a few times over the years. However, by the look of Sheena’s hair, I knew she was the lady who could get the job done! She cut off all the dead stuff, the split ends and got me looking fresh again! When it came time for a colour, there was no doubt in my mind who I should be trusting!
There isn’t a magazine, a tv show, or website where the Ombre or balayage isn’t present. It’s the hottest trend since the Jennifer Anniston haircut or the Victoria Beckham short lob. One of the reasons for this trend is because it’s real! We’ve taken real life and made the “lived in” look chic and effortless. It allows us to go longer without having to go to the hair salon because it’s not always possible. Sometimes life happens!
I went into Sheena and told her of my “laziness”. We spoke of the look I wanted and specifically that I didn’t want to look like everyone else. However, I needed something effortless that would work with me, not me working for my hair! We talked Ombre, balayage, hair painting, baby lights, and ultimately letting Sheena do what she does best is the way to go!
The results are in.. this is my favourite hair YET! Especially the way she has styled my hair! It never turns out nearly as amazing as when Sheena does it!
