Hair Stylist Appreciation Day

“It is my considered opinion that the hairdresser is the most influential person in any community. When the public goes to a hairdresser, something happens to them. They feel safe, they relax. The hairdresser knows what their skin is like under the makeup, they know their age, they don’t have to keep up any kind of pretense. People tell a hairdresser things they wouldn’t dare confess to a priest and they are open about matters they’d try to conceal from a doctor. When people place their secret lives in the hairdresser’s hands, the hairdresser gains an authority few other people attain. I have heard hairdressers quoted with complete conviction on art, literature, politics, economics, child care and morals. I tell you that a clever, thoughtful, ambitious hairdresser wields a power beyond comprehension of most people.”

John Steinbeck

Today, April 30th, is Hair Stylist Appreciation Day.

Why are Hair Stylist such an unique breed?

This is what I have learned having a Mother who is a Hair Stylist.

Although retired, she is still passionate about her profession. You can see it is her eyes and hear it in her voice anytime she talks about hair or reminisces about her career.

When you are a Hair Stylist it’s not just a job – it’s a lifestyle. That is what I admire most about the profession. Doing something that you love and are passionate about everyday – not many of us can say that.

Fashion Law: Basic Black Heel

A basic black heel – every woman should own at least one pair. It’s a fashion law.

I bought the Proto by Steve Madden – it’s a 4″ heel made of leather and I love the pointed toe!

These heels go with everything – casual or dressy. I love wearing them with jeans. So sexy.

Vidal Sassoon: Hair Icon

Vidal Sassoon

Next month, on May 9th, will mark the third anniversary of the passing of Vidal Sassoon – a hairdresser immortalized in the pages of fashion history for his architectural design approach to haircuts. Some of his signature styles include: angular bobs and the iconic five point cut haircut.

Here are some of his memorable most quotes:

“Hairdressers are a wonderful breed. You work one-on-one with another human being and the object is to make them feel so much better and to look at themselves with a twinkle in their eye.”

“If you get hold of a head of hair on somebody you’ve never seen before, cut beautiful shapes, cut beautiful architectural angles and she walks out looking so different – I think that’s masterful.”

“You either create something and you keep it a secret and you die with it, or you can benefit the craft.”

“I was a bit of a rebel.”

Accessorize Yourself

Accessories are kind of like the cherry on top of a sundae – when it comes to fashion. A great necklace, cuff bracelet or pair of earrings can put the final touch on an outfit.

The great thing is that you don’t have to break the bank to look stylish. I picked up these pieces a while back at Ardene - they look great and are super affordable.

The first piece is my favorite. I’ve worn it with a formal outfit and casual outfit – it looks great against a leopard print. So versatile – I love it.
