WHERE TO GET YOUR HAIR DONE WITH YOUR VINAS

I am pretty much a beauty school dropout (Cue in that song from Grease).

So, thank god there are people who have a handle on this sort of thing. I’ve spent years navigating the many ways in which I can get away with doing or not doing my hair. I’ve come to the conclusion that no matter how you tackle it there is something to be gained and loved in each of these ways to get your new ‘do. Find what suits you best, or try something new.

YOUR VINA IN TRAINING

This is my go-to method for my hair. I recommend this for more laid back cuts like a regular trim. Chances are that you know a vina who does hair on the side or is just finishing beauty school. This is a great way to kick them some extra cash and keep things low-key. Invite them over, and have some wine in the backyard while you get a trim. It keeps the budget in check and your ends happy.

SALON STYLE

There is something so communal about going to a salon, especially one you visit on the regular. There is a busy bustle and bubbly water, followed by a little gossip and deep conditioning treatments. The whole affair can make you feel extra special and pampered. Find someone who understands your hair, and let it become a regular part of your routine. Everyone knows a good hairdresser is just like a good therapist: always there when you need them and full of good advice.

Be careful with this one. How many times have we had a bottle of wine and decided we would look oh-so-cute with some bangs this season? Things can get a little dicey. But, if you’ve got a steady hand and some really nice scissors (order specialty ones online), then you’re good to go.

AT A BEAUTY SCHOOL

Find your local hairdressing school, and make an appointment there for anything, from a new color to trims to whatever else Pinterest can dream up. Everyone there will eventually work in a salon, but they’ve got hours of study and practice to log in. Your appointment will help them out. Who knows – maybe you’ll meet your soon-to-be hairdressing soul mate, and they will have a client for life. Plus, you will be receiving salon services at a fraction of the cost!
