After all the hustle & bustle of getting the kids back to school & finally starting to feel like we’re getting settled into a good routine, what momma doesn’t need a little self-care? Any of you mommas out there know how hard it can be to find both the time & the budget to get out & pamper yourself a little, so I was elated when my colorist Edith at Shears Studio told me she was wanting to do a mom’s hair for free this month, & had picked me! (Um, FAVOR! Thank you Jesus! THIS is what happens, when you bring SPECIFIC requests to Him! 😉 ) She has been doing my hair for a couple of years now, & her work is always beautiful! Bonus- I love knowing that when I go to her, I’m supporting a local Christian small business.
Shears has a welcoming atmosphere, & I love the fall touches! It’s always clean & well kept, & Edith & Karen are both always so friendly!

I’m always finding beautiful hair color ideas on Pinterest, so anytime I go to see Edith, I’ve got some inspiration photos ready to share with her. I always lean towards shades of red, but had been wanting to start going more blonde lately, so this was my inspiration:
I was loving this copper/strawberry blonde color on the left, but really wanted the roots to be more of that auburn red on the right, because we all know hair color end fades & changes with time, & I can’t be in the salon like that to keep it up, so I wanted to make sure that as the color fades & my hair grows, it will blend together well.
Here’s my hair before Edith did her magic, almost a full year after she gave me a rose gold bayalage:
Tip: Don’t let your single momma budget cause you to trust that Pinterest post that says the “ponytail method” is great for trimming your own hair between salon visits! I had no idea that layer back there looked like that lol
As you can see, I was waaaaay overdue for some fresh color, & Edith worked her magic with some Paul Mitchell color & fixed my layers for me too 🙂
She always matches my new color to the inspiration colors so well, she is truly gifted at the work she does!
Just look at this beautiful bayalage Edith made out of the inspiration colors I showed her! I’m so in love with my hair transformation y’all!!
