I hope you all have survived this whole virus in quarantine! I’m sure everyone’s closets are clean, the house is spic and span, and your lawn looks like something out of a gardening magazine.

It has been a long time since I’ve seen my clients. I am doing the happy dance to be back to work. I know many of you enjoyed the quiet time. I, on the other hand, am not good with too much spare time.

I did binge watch a ton of good TV shows, as well as some hair videos for some new ideas.

Also, I recently got to spend some great time with my daughter and son-in-law, my 2-month-old granddaughter and my very active, comic relief grandson. That kept me busy for a short time – and filled my heart.

Now I’m rested and ready. So the questions of the day are: How long is your hair? How grey is your hair? How one-dimensional is your hair from the at-home hair color that you used?

Whatever the case, I’m here for you. The good news is we might be able to try something entirely new because you have sat for too long without doing anything (or maybe doing too much – not on purpose, I’m certain).

Anyway, this shut-down could be a good thing. I know a lot of you couldn’t handle it and had to take hair matters into your own hands. If that’s the case, we can always fix it. It might take a little bit of time and money, but we can fix it.

If it’s just gray and you were thinking of keeping it gray – please don’t! We don’t need to be looking any older than we are.

We’ve had to let too many things go these past many weeks. I am hoping all of you are ready to look human again, to get out of the house and be pampered.

More importantly, I hope you are ready to look and feel like yourself again. I know I am!

Let’s look at this “time off” as a way to emerge fresh and new. And better than ever! Let down your ponytails, take out your barrettes, make your appointment with me.

Just put on your baseball cap and come on! I’ve got the masks, sanitizer, and everything else we need to have a safe, healthy new do! I can’t wait to see you.
