Look, Ma! New Hair!

4 Aug

It had been since April since I had last hair a hair cut and color treatment. And it was starting to look rough!



It was too long and way too brassy! So I enlisted the help of my Twitter followers and got loads of recommendations for stylists in the Central Florida area. Thank you, Jessica, for the recommendation!

Mount Dora was quite a drive, but it certainly was a pretty one. I didn’t take pictures, but I thoroughly enjoyed the drive there with the rolling hills and lakes. Who knew Florida wasn’t all that flat?

The Pure Aveda Salonspa is in such a charming building. Actually, the whole town was quite charming, and I think my heart fell in love with Mount Dora.


I’m a sucker for nice bathrooms.


Beautiful salon, right?


Kasey and I talked for quite a while about my goals for my hair for this appointment and long-term. We decided all one color and a cut that would make my hair look healthy again. And… she promised me the bangs I’ve longer for for so long.

Mission accomplished!


Cut and color was only $130, a bargain compared to what I have been paying. I also picked up Color Conserve shampoo and conditioner, which she recommended.


I personally think I look like a completely different person. I think I look more grown-up and more my own age, don’t you think?

If you live in the Orlando area and are looking for a rockin’ stylist, go see Kasey! She’s amazing!

Pure Aveda Salonspa is also on Twitter.

    I agree! I think it might be the bangs. The whole cut just looks really sophisticated!
