This. Week. Wow.

We did it! It’s over. This. Week. Is. Over. I did hilights this week, I did low lights this week, on hair. That is the high of my week. Like my client Vicki, who has the most beautiful hair.

2015/01/img_7653.jpg. Vicki got the flu around Christmas this year, as well as her son. She had to cancel her appointment. I knew it would be a long time before I could get her in. January is my busiest month of the year, I know that sounds crazy, but it’s the truth. So Vicki had to wait five weeks to get her hair done. Who has clients like that? I do. And I wanted to make Vicki’s wait worth her patience. We hilighted and low lighted her gorgeous hair and then curled it with a flat iron. So fun!

I did another clients hair that is growing out from surgery. Lorraine had a skin cancer removed from her forehead. When she came in she was very discouraged, she’s been wearing hats for a few months waiting for her hair to grow back. We cut and hilighted her hair and she is looking great!

On another note, I had a dear client, Paula that had a tumor removed from her brain yesterday. All day I would think about her, I prayed for her every time she came to mind. I was kind of down about her surgery, but I had to work. I had a bride to do. I had to have my game on. Paula made it through surgery. She did it!! Im so proud of her quiet strength and resilience. She had to be awake the entire surgery. And hold still! I can’t imagine!

So back to my bride to be, Shannon. I’ve done her since she was a baby, it seems like yesterday. That is also emotional. Time flies. Here is a sneak peek of our beautiful Shannon.

This week was full. Full of hilights, and low lights. Full of life at its best, and then some. When I knew I wanted to be a hairstylist at the age of five, I had no idea the impact it would have on my life, nor the strength it would take on a day to day basis. I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Have a great weekend everyone!
