The Violin Updo Please.....

I have been to at least a dozen hair shows over the years. Even before I got my license, I traveled all over with my mom attending different shows. It was the show in New York City that did it for me. That was the day I realized I wanted to be a hairstylist. Growing up with a mother who is a hair stylist, I never thought I'd end up doing the same exact thing, but I am so glad I made this career choice. It really is what I was meant to do and I thoroughly enjoy it. I love it because I get to make people look great and feel great! But I also get to let my creative juices flow and let my artistic side show. I miss doing hair in Oklahoma City, working 60 hours a week and barely having time to pee! Even though it was stressful and made for very long days, it was what I loved and enjoyed. I'm lucky enough to have a small business here in Germany and enjoy meeting new clients and friends.

Anyway... back to hair shows. There are some wonderful shows out there. One I recently came across was held in Budapest. Check out these incredible hair creations:

These are definitely interesting to say the least, but fantastic at the same time. How creative and artistic!

I would love to attend a hair show in Europe. It is definitely a goal of mine while I am living abroad.

I have actually been a hair model in a couple of hair shows. One was Toni & Guy and the other was for Big Sexy Hair. Toni & Guy did a fantastic job and I loved my hair! I'm not going to comment on Big Sexy, but it was still a neat experience. When getting your hair cut at a hair show, sometimes it's a little more "out there" then you'd expect. That was my case with Big Sexy. But hey, I'm a hairstylist, and we can get away with a lot more!

Have you ever been to a hair show?? What was your experience?

Hope you all have a wonderful Friday!! TGIF!

I stumbled upon one at a hotel I was staying at for a completely different convention once. I didn't get a good look because I was lugging tons of stuff down a very crowded escalator because the elevator was out of order, but from what I did see, it was spectacular. It was all colors and insane styles.

Wow...That's nuts! I've never been to one but my aunt goes to a hair show in NY every year...She's a stylist as well.

You should totally try to get to a show while you're over there. The musical hair is a little strange to me...but whatever works for ya!

Wow cannot believe that they actually have hair shows!!! But how cool... maybe in another life HAHA!

I want to see the pics from when you were a hair model!!!

valerie said...

Those were some crazy hair styles!

You do a great job. I know Kristen was very sad to see you leave. The one time you thinned mine out was wonderful. :)

I've only trimmed my own bangs a few times and regretted it terribly. One time it was just before my best friend's wedding. I was her maid of honor! How could I?!!!

I do hope you get to attend a show in Europe. How fun would that be. I've never been to a hair show.

Have a great weekend.

I saw the violin one on Yahoo news photos! It cracked me up but was impressive at the same time. I've never been to a hair show, but I think it would be interesting!

New Girl on Post said...

Have you ever seen the movie about the hair show? It was called something like Blow Dry.

Do you have pictures of yourself in the hair-show? That'd be interesting to see.

By the way I'm seriously thinking of coming to Germany just so you can do my hair. :)

Laura said...
