hey.

Welcome to my blog. This is where I document my adventures in life. Hope you stay awhile!

Hair by Lark

Hair by Lark

The two things that I must mention before anything else:

1)  The location that Sara has created is such an ascetically pleasing shop, you walk in off the busy street into a relaxing and beautifully decorated salon that just puts you instantly at ease to lean back and enjoy your time being pampered.

2) Jerica is one of the most talented hair artists I have ever met and have had the grand pleasure of going to. Oh, and to boot she is just a total absolute sweetheart!

I went in after work on the Friday before leaving on a week long trip to Chicago looking for a new hair look, or let's just be completely honest I was looking for a hair look in general, typically I get my hair cut every twelve-ish weeks but with other things going on it had been more like twenty weeks, in other words far-far too long. My hair was limp, lifeless and just all around lackluster before landing in Jerica's wonderful hands. I had sent ahead some of my inspiration images to Sarah so that she and Jerica could see what I was thinking of and they expertly took all of my ideas and images and shined light on the ones that would actually work for my hair type and texture. My wants were: to lighten the color quite a bit but in a way that would be easy to upkeep, shorten the length to something a little less annoying than what I had going on  since I was at that terrible growing out stage where it was constantly touching my shoulders and curling up and lastly a cut that I would have to style to a certain extent daily but overall be able to style without the help of an extra set or two of hands. Now I know that I was asking for a lot but she fulfilled all of my wants like it was no big thing and I absolutely love it. It has been almost a month now since I had it cut and I have actually done my hair in some way almost everyday, for me that is a BIG deal. Jerica really took the time to walk me through the steps of how to style my hair and offered multiple times that I come in and she would give me some mini-tutorials, isn't she wonderful?! Really, what I am trying to say here is that all of you need to go to Lark ASAP or at least call and make an appointment. Hasta!
