I've got twenty minutes to write. Well, hum, I could write about salon politics, which seems to be prevalent. Or I could write about a new client I had last week. Luscious, thick, curly hair. Lovely personality--witty, smart, creative and pretty, in a non-traditional way. Her look was in-congruent with what seemed to be an alternative profession by dressing conservatively. Her voluminous hair sat heavy on her head, dragging down her already long face. She was open and clear she wanted to keep length, so we did. We layered, textured, channeled and lifted her hair, which took time. A slight a-line, layered bob was the desired shape.
To see her hair come to life by releasing it's swirls and arcs, and hair flying, an onlooker would think it was a well-thought-out choreographed dance piece. Her hair came to life as we partnered in the dance. We I handed her the mirror to look at the profile, she said, "I love it."
I thought to myself as she left, "This is the type of client I want to attract!"
Everything about the experience left me fulfilled. Boundaries existed, but they didn't color the whole event, and both of us appeared to be free in the time we shared. Beautiful.
