It's almost the New Year, 2011! So what resolutions do you have for yourself this coming year? Are you just fulfilling one hope or dream on your list, or are you courageous and tackling all of them. One of my best friends, Rebecca, put it well. In her own words ..."In 2011 I am going to do the things that I am most scared of. The things that I have thought about for years, but never accomplished due to self doubt. Taking risks and re-investing in myself (my brain)." I admire Rebecca's courage and strength and have no doubt that she will accomplish what she sets out to do.

For myself, however, my resolutions tend to be smaller but just as important. But these little resolutions are sure to make a big impact in my life.
  • Take nothing for granted. (health included)
  • Spending more time outside (especially with my k-9 baby boy, Paisan)
  • Traveling more (even if it is to just get out of the city)
  • Spending more time with the people that mean the most to me.
  • Taking more time for myself and taking better care of me.
  • (This is the most important)...LEARNING TO SAY "NO"! (at least to some things :)
This last one I have struggled with my whole life and will probably continue to struggle with. I am a self professed "People Pleaser". It's one of the many reasons I love being a hairstylist...Instant gratification all day long, for both parties. While making people happy makes me happy...I also have to remember to take time for myself, because that makes me happy too! :) The idea is BALANCE!!!

I believe that 2011 is MY year, and I want to be present for all the moments it has to offer.  This coming year, I wish all of you an abundance of Love, Peace, Happiness and Balance!

I hope everyone is enjoying the season and I hope you all have been good so that Santa brings you what you've asked for! :) Take care and I promise to post a lot more frequently in the New Year!!!

The Pineapple Express

A Little Weather Lesson

Here in the Pacific Northwest, we are experiencing the "Pineapple Express". For those who are not familiar with this weather phenomenon, it's quite simple and somewhat interesting. Click here for a satellite image of the P. Express that has been happening more recently in the past few years.

Basically what this means for the good people of the NW, is we get tons of rain and lots of frizzy hair as a by-product of all the wetness in the air.

What does one do to help relieve all this unwelcome frizz???...

You either go with the flow, literally...or you pull out a arsenal of product and cross your fingers. 

My personal way of dealing is using the flat iron subtly to give the hair a slight wavy look, (seen as how it will end up that way), or add some anti- frizz serum to enhance an already wavy or curly look. 

Another great way to deal with the frizz is to put your hair up or at the very least, clip out of your way. I found these great clips on Etsy by Baubles-n-Bows.

Either way, just like the weather, sometimes you can't predict the hair. Chances are, you are better to go with the flow, instead of against. Don't forget your umbrella or your paddle!!!
