This past weekend I was invited by a friend to “get our hair done”. I did not ask for any more information, as I do not know a more relaxing way to begin a weekend than by getting your hair styled by a professional. I was expecting some sort of small event at a hair salon but was pleasantly surprised when I arrived to a spa-like pop-up shop set up by Pantene. While we waited and browsed through the different products on their new line, we were treated with coffee and a nail and candy bar. They then took the time to really figure out which one of Pantene’s new products would be best for our hair.  Since I have been playing around with my hair in the last few months I opted for their colour treated option and I must admit, I am quite the fan!

I also {finally!} learned how to curl my hair using a hair straightener. I know I am about 5 years too late and in all honesty I have tried and failed more times than I care to admit. The hairstylist that was working on my hair was incredibly friendly and as he was working his way through my ridiculous full head of hair, curling with the ease of a professional, I opened up to him and told him about the many embarrassing attempts that I have made to curl my hair with anything but a curling iron. Taking pity on me, he explained the technique in a language that I actually understood.

Amazing hairstylist: “Are you crafty?”

Me: “I like to think so…”

Amazing hairstylist: “Have you ever curled a ribbon with scissors?”

Me:….{mind blown & mouth literally gaping in awe}…..”Seriously?! That’s it?!”

Amazing hairstylist: “Yup”

So the next morning I imaged my hair being ribbon and my curling iron being scissors and I am incredibly proud to say that it worked!
