A few months ago I started noticing how basic my hair was and having a job that requires me to spend big amounts of time staring at myself did not really help! It was after this photoshoot that I realized how much it looked like a playmobil hair-do and decided to do something about it.
And last week, I finally did something about it!
I went to Mixed Co. in Chicago and got a hair cut and balayage. I made an appointment with John Mouzakis and was not worried at all about the haircut. John comes from one of the top hair salons in Hong Kong and after seeing his work online, I knew I was in good hands. He understood immediately what I wanted and what I did not like… and did a great job! After a few days with my new do, I’m really happy with how much easier it is to style! And he is also pretty cool and full with fun stories! And a very important detail that is very important… he owns a pug (yayyy!). Pugs are so funny and adorable, so we had tons of funny anecdotes to share!
I was a little nervous about was the balayage part! Which was super silly, because Kristen is a top colorist and educator, and her Instagram account (@kristencolorhair) is filled with #hairgoals! And it turned out great (more pics)! This was my first time getting balayage… and what I can tell you is that it’s amazing how soft my hair feels! I was ready to come back home with the a hard and broken hair feeling, but it still feels soft…even after washing it every day for the last week! I really wish I could go back in time to my teenage years and get some balayage!
So, if you guys are looking for a place that will make all your #hairgoals come true (and are located in the Chicago area!) head over to Mixed Co. Salon! Remember to ask for John Mouzakis for your haircut and Kristen for color.
