What I did: New Haircut From New Stylist
When I did it: On the way home from my plane lesson, the day after my birthday (Sept. 25)
Notes: I was so psyched from flying, I pulled off interstate and into a popular shopping center to decide what to do next. Lunch, shopping, home. When I looked up, there was the salon I'd been researching on the internet. Before I lost my nerve, I looked up the phone number, called to ask about walk-ins, made an appointment for 1 hour later and got my hair cut from whomever was available. I was lucky. She did a great job and understood my thick mass of hair. Even though I gave her carte blanche, she chose to keep my hair shoulder length and work with my waves instead of trying to straighten and shorten it.
The Takeaway/What I learned: Use your pumped up adrenaline to fuel other pursuits that you're nervous about
Do Again?: Absolutely
Rave: Very accommodating, knowledgeable and relaxing salon
Words of Wisdom: Trust your instincts, and when you can't trust those, trust Divine guidance and intervention.
