I took this photo at hair competitions in Melbourne a few years ago.
In the hairdressing industry you see a lot of people come and go, it's never as glamorous in reality as it appears from the outside. I never thought it would happen to me; that I would become a hairdressing statistic and leave the industry. But I did. The universe knows best! I lost my passion and I'd always said that if I ever lost my passion for it, I'd give it up. I couldn't do a job half heartedly, my clients would know. I've never been a good liar or actor, everything I feel shows on my face or body language.
Having said all that, I do miss all things hair, especially the people! I still keep up with whats in fashion with hair, it's just something I've always done. When I was working in the salon I was usually pretty fashion forward. My look has generally been whatever everyone else isn't doing. I would like to do things first, and by the time everyone else starts wearing it, I've moved onto the next thing! I dislike wearing (hair or clothes) that everyone else is. I'm not extremely way out though, just a little quirky. Gotta love quirky!
I've found it harder to be quirky when I'm just at home. I tend to dress for comfort and easily get stuck in a rut. What do you wear when you're just at home? I'm also not as worried about what's 'in' with clothes, I just want to wear my own style. What I love and what suits me and things that no-one else has. I find a lot of awesome stuff at the op shops now (thrift store) which I supplement with stuff from my friend's shop or from mainstream stores in Melbourne, when I get there.
So, there's a little more about me! Stay tuned for some posts about hair, I've got heaps of tips and I'm very happy to share them with you!
Have a wonderful week,
