I hadn’t had a hair cut and color since the fall and was in desperate need of both. My hair had gotten an out of control, Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm look to it. A friend recommended her stylist and friend, who works from her home.

What pure joy! I walked out of there feeling like a million bucks. My unstyled, frizzy long hair had given way to styled, silky long hair with fabulous flair. She laughed when I gave her loose directions — “I want controlled chaos” — because she knew just what I meant.

As if all of that wasn’t enough of a treat, she also played around with some makeup tricks while the color was processing in my hair. Who knew what a little navy blue eye shadow could do?

Suffice to say I went to work feeling like a hottie. Yeeha.
