I know my blog is all about health and wellness but if you remember from this post where I talk about my Thai life, I am a total glam girl. I love getting my hair blown out, I love LOVE wearing makeup (as natural as possible of course) and I love SHOPPING! In my life I have gone through MANY transformations, changes and even diets, at one point in my life I was a raw vegan but I have NEVER changed my hair color. I have been bleaching my hair since I was 13 years old. Since moving to Vegas, I have been pinning images of girls with multi-dimensional blondes of all shades, fades and lengths for over six months. I never thought I could pull it off, like I said I had been the same shade of blonde for over 14 years!
I finally took a plunge and trusted Cameren Morger at Kaya Salon to do my hair makeover after seeing the beautiful color they did via Instagram (total INSPO @kayabeauty). The color combo I wanted can be done but I have seen some pretty messed up fades in my time (dip dye anyone?)
There are millions of salons here in Vegas, when I first moved here I was shocked at the amount of eyelash extension spots and hair salons which for me meant just about anyone can open a salon..I was scared, I won’t lie to you guys, I have literally been bleach blonde for over 14 years, making a change like this is SCARY! I knew I had to make the change because my hair just won’t grow, I had tried Viviscal, not washing my hair, cutting it every 6 weeks, let’s just say I am sick of clipping hair extensions in everyday. I had to take the plunge.
My Before/After Photo:
I die for a salon that takes me away from my everyday crazy cool lifestyle. I am literally always on my phone, laptop or in a gym training a client. My go-go-go never ends and although I have been taking meditation classes the fact I sat in a chair for 2 hours and didn’t work was astonishing. The vibe in Kaya is relaxing, spa like and I just felt so relaxed. My stylist chatted with me and educated me with exactly what she was doing. I may be informed on health and wellness but hair..not my thing. I learned that since Vegas is so hot I need to spray condition my hair daily so it stays moisturized, I needed more B vitamins to thicken my hair and to continue the no washing my hair (I wash my hair every 4-5 days EKK!) She also helped me relax, remember this is a big change for me..
The pictures say it all, I left with a total hair transformation and LOVED, absolutely LOVED the color. I felt like a new woman, and felt a bit more fierce. I never understood why getting my hair done made me feel like a new person but for some reason it just does.
Before I left, I took a little tour and found that Kaya had a SPA! A legit SPA, not a room like the other salons you visit. I wanted to stay for the rest of the day and just lounge in the separated area and get a massage! I think my next appointment will be a massage, facial and blowout, if I disappear you all know where to find me!
Why You Should Make a Change
Like I said, my life has gone through some crazy changes, ups and downs and I haven’t been focused on myself. I kind of in a way stayed in the same tank top, old shorts and squeezing my last bit of BB cream onto my brush for way too long. I needed a change, I wanted to shake things up a bit with my appearance and give myself a new look to reflect how I now feel in the inside. I was for a hot minute feeling depressed and turned upside down post moving half way across the world and now I feel fierce, fit and FABULOUS! If you feel down I suggest getting your hair done, shopping for a new outfit, getting a massage just doing something girlie for yourself, nothing like being a girl!
