Hair to the Throne Salon is now celebrating its Second birthday! This time of year always puts me in an introspective mood, reminding me of the challenges I faced two years ago while trying to open my own Ann Arbor hair salon. Although the challenges were met, new ones will continue to pop up, forcing me to learn and grow in new ways; with new skills to service my clients and be a better hairdresser than I was last year.
The best decision I’ve made this year is going to the Devacurl advanced class in July. Not only did I have a blast in NYC, but I literally took my curly hair skills to the next level. Since then, I’ve been meeting a TON of curly headed folks! This is a lot of fun for me because I’m the girl with stick straight hair that has always wanted some type of wave or curl. Now I get to play with beautifully textured hair more often.
I’ve also been hearing their crazy curly hair stories; Stories about their childhood “triangle” and “mushroom” haircuts; about their high school hairdresser “perming” their already curly hair in order to keep it under control. Yes, I’ve heard this and so much more.
I am grateful for the opportunity to take hair that has typically been considered “out of control”, and give it the love that it definitely needs. The Devacurl products are wonderful in this regard and the more I use them, the more I love them!
So, as we head into 2017, I would like to just say thank you to all of my wonderful clients, some of whom I’ve known for well over a decade, and some who I’ve just recently met. I look forward to providing all of you with your beauty needs. Have a safe and happy holiday season! Much love, Shannon.
