October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month – and of course one of the big trends for supporting the fight for the cure is getting the Pink Hair for Hope. Yes, the infamous pink streaks in your hair! This year I found myself much more aware of the cause, mainly because my Aunt was recently diagnosed. She’s now in remission, which is good, but doesn’t necessarily mean everything is fine and dandy.
So in an effort to help in the fight for the cure, I teamed up with my hair sponsor, Michael-Warrens Salon. The salon is based in Elkhart, Indiana but Michael travels all over teaching the art of hair extensions. He’s the # 1 Cold Fusion artist in the Nation! Ladies, I’ve had hot-glue bonds in my hair before…and they were terrible (those were not by Michael-Warrens by the way!) The Cold Fusion method uses ultrasound waves – NO HEAT – so it’s less damaging and it’s more natural looking! Plus they last longer!
I met up with Michael in Chicago several weeks ago for a hair show with the internationally famous celebrity hair stylist, Nicholas French. Michael put some fabulous pink extensions in my hair for Pink Hair for Hope and then Nicholas French gave me the best cut of my life! Seriously…when he was finished…I looked at it and almost cried. I just thought it was the best my hair has ever looked… I wish I could have him cut my hair every time!
Meeting Nicholas French was quite an experience. He commanded the room and you just automatically respect – he obviously knew what he was doing. While Nicholas French was showing everyone how to cut long hair using me as a model, he proceeded to tell the class about his traveling/styling adventures – one of them being the time he did the princess’ hair. I don’t remember which princess he said…but the fact that he’d done the hair of royalty…and now he’s standing there doing my hair…I almost shed a tear again! Lol…it was an emotional day! And to top the day off…Michael named me their official Pink Hair for Hope Model!
