    I have a hair person that I pretty much just let do whatever she wants because I trust what she does. But this last week was pretty much a waste because I can’t tell what she did on my color, even though I know she did something! lol

    Wow, your hair looks awesome! I loved how it came out in the engagement photos, too. I don’t have a regular hair person anymore, but I had one when I was kid, and then another throughout high school and my first three years of college. Eventually I realized that I needed to find somebody closer to my new home, not my childhood home, so now it’s kind of up in the air.

    I have a hair person too! I used to bounce between a high end salon and the beauty school (depending on my $$) but after a tragic cut (a pre-wedding trim turned shag/mullet), I settled with my friend. She is not even licensed or trained but somehow can work magic on my thick, bushy hair. She is a magician! And CHEAP ($35 for full color/highlights and a cut).

    I actually went to the same person to get my hair trimmed my whole life until I went to college. My mom just took me to the guy who cut my mom’s and my grandmother’s hair. When I went to collee I bopped around wherever there was a good deal and now I go to the Aveda salon in Chicago. I only ever get a trim about 2-3 times a year so it’s jut not important to me!

    Your haircut and style looks gorgeous! Ever since I moved out on my own in 2006, I wasn’t able to find a regular hair person until last year. My friend Missy posted pictures of her new haircut and she looked amazing. I asked her who she used, and I went to that person and I was in love. Even though it’s more expensive than I’d like to pay for my hair, she is the only person who really gets what I want and understands my hair. I can’t trust anyone else (I even got a cut from her the Friday morning of HLS because I needed a blowout that would last through the CrossFit workout!). I really like having someone I know I can trust and will always leave me looking better than I thought I could.

    I’ve had a hair person for 3 years, but he’s been failing me lately. It’s like he decided to stop listening and started doing whatever he wants. I never leave with a bad ‘do, but there’s a big difference between “Cut it past my shoulder” and “I thought you’d look better with chin-length hair.” So now I have to find a new hair person, and the tricky part is finding someone I trust enough to not mess it up. Sorry, I’m rambling! The point is: Stephanie sounds awesome! Don’t lose her!

    Your hair looks so pretty! I have gone to the same girl for almost 4 years now. I tell her sometimes what I want and sometimes I let her surprise me. I only do this because I trust her and I have told her before what I definitely don’t want. I like having someone that I know and trust instead of random people doing my hair every time.

    I’m the exact opposite of you: I’ve only had one person cut my hair in my entire life. Since my first haircut, I’ve gone to the same person every single time. I have had other people do my hair (like for dances in high school and whatnot), but I’ve never had anyone else cut it. The lady who cuts my hair grew up next door to my mom, so it’s kind of a family friend sort of thing. She doesn’t always do exactly what I ask for, and now that I live on my own and reeeeaaaalllly need a haircut I’m thinking about trying someone else out, but I almost can’t imagine having anyone else cut my hair!

    I used to have a regular hair guy when I was a kid, then around high school/college, I became a hair nomad. I always thought “I have short, guy hair, how hard can it be to get a decent hair cut?” and went to the cheap chain places. And more often than not, it wasn’t a good hair cut – I guess guys hair is harder than it seems. Then in the past year, I caught a glimpse of my growing bald spot in the mirror, shaved all my hair off, and have had the same hair guy since – me! That clippers has more than paid for itself.

    I’ve always had a hair person. I’ve been going to my current person for 8 years. She is awesome. I change my hair color every time I go in and she is always able to give me what I want.

    I had the same stylist from 2nd grade until about 2 years ago (I’m 30). Now I see a different stylist at a First Choice Haircutters. I can’t make an appointment there like my old salon, but I do know her hours & just go when she’s there.

    My boyfriend does not have a hair stylist and I would say it’s hit or miss with his cuts. One time he came home the stylist had given him these weird layers in the back-he looked like a soccer Mom.
    The next time, the hair cut was so bad that when I got home he was wearing a hat-he later took the hat off to reveal that he had come home after the cut really mad because it looked bad and then proceeded to shave it all off. Men are impossible.

    She did a great job ~ looks really pretty ~ and very long.

    I’ve always had a regular hair-gal. It’s hard to find a new one when they quit or move. Word of mouth is the best ~ I think =) I go every 6 weeks for a color touch-up and a trim.

    I am so jealous of your thick hair!
    I have followed my girl around from salon to salon since college (almost 13 years yikes!) I have had grey hair since I was 16 and color it regularly. She seems to be the only person to make sure it doesn’t turn orange or purple (I have a lot of red tones she says).

    I have very curly, very thick, VERY unruly hair. After years and years of fighting with it, I finally realized that there are hairstylists out there that only specialize in my hair type. I booked an appointment with a stylist when I moved to MD five years ago, and I have never, ever looked back. She’s amazing, and she made me love my hair again!

    • SaraB
      August 24, 2012

      I have the exact same hair type. I usually tell people to imagine having a head full of eyebrow hairs. I actually ended up going to someone who specialized in ethnic hair on a whim (someone had given me a gift certificate) and I never looked back. Every couple years Ill get sucked into a deal or try to do something myself and she always has to fix it. Im lucky she lets me come back, but I love her! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I go every 5 weeks to have my hair cut and high (or low) lighted and get a pedicure now. I schedule 2 appointments out! But I went 4 years without a haircut when I was in residency, had 2 little boys, and was broke. I used to just trim my bangs myself in front of the bathroom mirror:).

    Your hair looks AMAZING.

    Based on your pictures, I think that you & I might have similar hair texture-wise. I don’t know what kind of shampoo/conditioner you use, but I can tell a difference with professional products vs. regular brands. I am absolutely NOT a “products person” either and cannot stand to spend $$$ on beauty products. I used to think expensive hair products were a waste of money, and I will get in these moods where I refuse to believe that there is a difference and buy something on sale from CVS or Walmart, but I ALWAYS end up coming back to the good stuff.

    My hair is natural curly but I blow dry it most of the time. It holds curl well and looks like yours from the back, although not quite as long. I actually use hot rollers to get those curls and they stay all day.

    I started going to the same person throughout high school after too many DIY hair colors, and I’ve loved having someone I can trust to make me feel great and keep my hair healthy. After going to college, I started looking for someone new since I didn’t want to make the trip home for a haircut. Plus, I was less satisfied with my stylist at that point and needed someone new. After a very long search – one that didn’t end until after I graduated – I found my current girl and couldn’t be happier. She’s great but knowing when I’m hesitant to try a new style I’m interested in and finding an alternative or a way to ease into it.

    A lot of people send money on massages or manicures to relax. I consider investing in my stylist a few times a year to be my indulgence to relax.

    My hair girl is my brothers ex-girlfriend of like 8 years! It was awkward at first but she is amazing. I tried someone else but it never looked the same. Luckily its all good now and they are both married with one child! I could never go to anyone else and I am glad she is always super professional!

    I have a hair person, in Montana (where I’m from) and then moved to Texas. You’d think I could find an amazing hair person in Dallas, but I’ve had nightmare hair-people. Too bad your hair person isn’t in Dallas, because I would want to share hair-people ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s always such a relief when you can trust someone with your hair. And yours looks so pretty!

    I used to be exactly like you — never went to the same place for haircuts, didn’t even like making appointments, would just suddenly get the urge for a cut and then just go to whatever walk-in place would have an opening. Until one fated day at a Bubbles Salon when I met my now-stylist, Sarah! I loved what she did so much, I made sure to book an actual appointment with her for the next time. And the next time, and the next time, and so forth. I even followed her to her new salon when she left Bubbles, and now my brother, his fiance, and one of my old coworkers goes to her too. Makes me feel so grown up to have a “real” hair person.

    Of course, since I’m growing out my hair now, I haven’t seen her in like a zillion years. Oops.

    So gorgeous! I wish my hair could do that! My mom has been going to the same salon for almost 20 years back in NY. She went there to get her hair done for her wedding, and has continued to go back every 2-3 months since. When she had me and my sister, we immediately went there too. I switched over to a new stylist after my mom’s original one left when I was 10. She cut/colored/did updo’s for prom/parties – everything! I was so sad to leave her when I moved to Boston, that I would procrastinate haircuts/color touch-ups until I was back home for a holiday break. Only recently have I found a stylist in Boston that I like that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. But I will always go back and see Amy ๐Ÿ™‚

    I also followed in my mother’s footsteps. She ALWAYS had a hairdresser and I always went to her hairdresser. When she would switch (happened 3-4 times in 15 years), I would switch with her. My current hairdresser is amazing! I actually got a Groupon for a local place, but I could not bring myself to “cheat” on Silvana. It’s pricey so I don’t go often, but when I do, I am never disappointed.

    I have had the same hairdresser for nearly 20 years – Michael Jon at Artistic Hair Care & Design in Winter Park. He used to do the hair circuits through the major cities of the world, and then retired here in Florida. You wouldn’t know what a wizard he is to look at him… he’s as quiet and reserved as he can be!… but I will be so sad when he finally decides to hang up his scissors for good! (Pssst! If you’re in the Orlando area and want his number – let me know!)

Keep in mind there was a time when I had dreadlocks and a shaved head so it didnโ€™t really require a whole lot. lol.. I again have a regular hair dresser, but keep the appointments down to about 3 a year.. because she is pricy.. but I love her work.

    I’ve never been loyal to a hairstylist and now I’m even worse that I live in NYC where there’s more choices (a good thing and a bad thing). I seem to be in cycle of not wanting to spend a lot since I’ve never had much difference and then not getting awesome service because I don’t have a relationship with one. I also go wayyyyy to long between cuts.
