Ladies, I’m sure we’ve all heard of retail therapy and how if we’re in need of some inspiration, we should call our best girlfriends and head to the mall to indulge. Well I’m telling you to skip the Forever 21 trip, head to the hair salon and replace those shopping bags with a fabulous new hairdo. These days, if a woman wants to look up a new hairstyle, all she has to do is type in a few words on Google or YouTube, and millions of ideas of “do-it-yourself” articles and videos will pop up. I am definitely all for learning how to style your own hair and save money in the process, but I also believe every woman should take some time to go to their favorite beauty salon and get pampered every once in a while.
Long gone are the days where women are solely focusing on raising a family, catering to a man or simply focusing on their career. Women are doing all of the above and much much more, so it’s only right we take the Superwoman cape off sometimes and let others take care of us. Going to the salon is way more than just searching for a new style or seeking proper maintenance for your current style, it’s a culture. It’s taking a trip, stepping into a different world for a few hours and bonding with woman (some complete strangers) in a way that maybe our daily schedules don’t allow us to do. We get to sit back, relax with a glass of Sangria (you know it’s a great salon if they offer you a cocktail) and get beautified.
I know when I’m stressed or life seems to be knocking me down, writing and getting a new hairstyle are my two favorite outlets. Shopping is in the top five, but I’d much rather sit and be catered to than walk around a busy mall in hopes of finding something worth stripping down for and trying on.
How great is it to walk into a place one way, and come out looking dolled up and refreshed? Plus, you can always count on good gossip and advice from the stylists and other gals in the salon. My last trip consisted of the ladies’ opinions on the latest trashy reality shows, why men cheat, and how to avoid drama from insignificant people in life. All in all there’s never a dull moment when you have a group of women from different walks of life in the same place at the same time for the common interest of getting spruced up. So ladies next time you feel like you’re in need of a change, you know where to go.
