If I had to choose, my favourite physical attribute of myself would have to be my hair. It has been so resilient throughout the years, I've cut it, bleached it, dyed it, permed it (and failed) but it stays healthy and never betrays me! haha
With that being said, I am very particular with who touches my head as I've had some BAD experiences in the past. Rewind to grade 8 graduation when my hair was to my hip and I went in for a TRIM and I came out short of 6 inches and lopsided, needless to say there were lots of tears and I boycotted any hair salons for a good 2 years following. Needless to say I looked something like the girl from the grudge for some time. So these days, only one person cuts my hair and in my recent visit back to New York a few weeks ago, I was able to visit her at her new home, Wonderland Beauty Parlor.
What can I even say about this place?! Located in the heart of NYC's Meatpacking District, when you walk it, it is like you're walking into wonderland. Between the flower wall-neon 'Wonderland' sign, to the fuchsia chairs, glittering chandelier and sea of mermaid dolls, I couldn't get enough! I was introduced to the owner Michael who is the sweetest human alive and slays some heads I'm sure you guys would recognize!
My hair slay was nothing short of amazing, my gal, Sarah Rappolt brought my hair back to life with a blunt cut, long layers all around and framed my face with some layers I like to use for my floating bangs that I often capture in my shoots. So if you guys reside in NY or get the chance to visit and are in dire need of a hair slay, VISIT MY GIRL! You won't be disappointed!
