As you know, I’m a natural kind of gal, and after struggling with not liking my hair all my life I have really enjoyed using henna for the past year to create shine and smoothness in my frizzy tangles.
But you know what? As much as I love henna and will continue to use it as my fall back go-to conditioning glaze, I hadn’t had a *real* haircut, one in a salon, in a looooong time and I was feeling heavy and drab.
Lucky for me, right in my hometown a faboo new Aveda concept salon opened up, and I am smitten!
I saw the signage for Vintage Hair Studio out driving past it one day and it felt so perfect, I was drawn in. Something about the logo, the feel, the energy of the place had me thinking… is it time to get a real haircut, and maybe even a color?
Yes. Yes it was, my friends. It was high time.
So this Saturday I went in with lifeless heavy locks that pulled down at my face, and I walked out with soft waves and gentle highlights and crisp fresh ends. I love it! I feel like a girl again, instead of a ho-hum blob of generic brown. I love what the owner, Krisan, has done not only with my head of hair but her entire studio.
If you live anywhere in the Charleston area, I think you simply *need* to check them out. Located at 717 Old Trolley Road in Summerville, they are hands down my favorite salon, and I’m talking better than any salon I’ve tried in the hoity-toity downtown area. I love that she uses 99% natural Aveda products from start to finish, and I loved the open, relaxed, charming vintage feel of her studio. Located nestled between a coffee shop and an italian restaurant, do yourself a favor and make a day of it!

That’s my little secret for feeling like a girl again this holiday season. Soooo nice to be back from boring-ville. A little bounce in your step never hurt anyone, did it? xoxo, Laura
