FALL CUT AND COLOR / BY ALLIE K
hello there! it’s been a while since I’ve jumped on here so it’s about time for a new post. during my unintended hiatus, i’ve tackled a few personal goals (starting the dreaded closet purge which is the worst), and accomplished some professional goals (presenting on a panel about social media and small business — a big one for me this month!) and sadly blogging is always the first project that takes a backseat. But i’m back because fall is officially here, which means a new season, fresh starts and oh so many good patterns. but more on that later.
today, i’m talking about hair — my hair specifically! September has always been my favorite time of year; there’s something about that crisp air that generates a feeling of newness, and it’s so motivating. i treat fall like a head-start to the new year, and the first thing i tackle come September is making an appointment for a fresh cut and color. cutting off dead-ends, hiding those creeping grays (eek!), and introducing a shape back into my ‘do does wonders for my confidence and overall attitude. with new hair, i feel like i can take on anything!
if you’re anything like my friends and I, finding the right hairstylist in the city is always challenge. luckily i’ve stumbled upon an absolute gem — one who needs to be shared!
meet Allie K: boston hair stylist, balayage queen and all around amazing human being. since my first appointment with her, i’ve trusted allie completely with my hair. she just gets me. when i walked into her salon at the beginning of the month, i gave her full creative control for both cut and color. the result: possibly my favorite hairstyle i’ve ever had! i am obsessed with the honey color, and the blunt cut.
i have a lotttt of hair and Allie managed to take the weight out, giving me a modern cut with movement and versatility. rather than throwing my hair up in a bun (my go-to), i can’t help but wear it down as much as possible!
one more thing? i adore the thoughtful placement of color. those face framing highlights really brighten my skin tone, and i can achieve a brand new look simply by changing my part. i’ve gotten a handful of compliments from friends, colleges and strangers since walking out of allie’s chair — the mark of an amazing hairdresser for sure!
all in all, i love my new look and am ready to conquer what this season throws at me.
if you’re interested in booking an appointment with allie, she is currently accepting new clients at Salon de cheveux in south boston. and please tell her i sent you her way! i promise, you will love her as much as i do!
