Hair Goddess.... GIVEAWAY!!!


So I have a big confession for all you that have only known me in the last few years.....
Yes. It's true. I actually spent most of my life as a...... BLONDE!
I know.
For reals I was.

{I'm going to try not to cringe in showing you all this}

I grew up as a blonde, and then started coloring to maintain the blonde once I was in my later teen years, and by the time I got married at 20, my hair was hanging by threads. I had to chop it all off! I spent 3 years in CA completely destroying it, and then moved back to AZ in 2003.
I had started to transition in to a brunette at that point for sheer survival, and that's when I found Karin {signal glorious sound of Angels singing HAAAAAA-LLELUJAH! and trumpets. lots of trumpets}
I immediately knew that Karin was the real deal. She was the owner of the salon where I went and I could just tell this chick had her act together! She was a whiz with hair, she was professional, kind and friendly, and she was not going to do anything that would damage my hair. I saw hair-hope in this woman! :)
And thus started our fantastic EIGHT... yes EIGHT year relationship! I can't tell you how big that is for me, because before that I never lasted with any stylist more than 6 months. I was a stylist-hopper if you will, and I had little hope in any of them. Even the really high end ones - still never turned out well for me. So finding one that I knew I could trust was a life changer.
I have happily stayed brunette ever since!

Not only have I gone to Karin for 8 years, so has my husband! Even he will tell you that he'd never let anyone else cut his hair.
