I am excited to begin the next chapter of this journey by offering content based on some of the things I feel very passionate about. After much consideration…and moving back closer to “home”, I am going to be posting whatever sparks joy, provokes thought and/or may raise awareness. wellness J
“Maybe the journey isn’t about becoming anything. Maybe it’s about unbecoming everything that isn’t really you.”
After exploring a new area and second location for a couple years…the lost year of 2020 due to the pandemic…facing an unexpected 8 week shut down…I really began to see life differently. Really just see and appreciate the simple things that the chaos of hustling to/from and during work had kept be void of having the time for. Two weeks in, I almost felt panic stricken…paralyzed. My son and I started painting rocks for fun with positive messages listening to the tunes of Jack Johnson (my choice, not his). We ventured out daily..placing these rocks with handwritten notes from him to pass along the good vibe. Soon, we started seeing the rocks appear in posts on our local Next Door App. It was working! A positive and friendly buzz was happening!
From this experience, I gained a sense of community. A feeling. Those people who wanted to focus on the good and find joy in simple things…those were my people. They are, in fact, everywhere. I believe kindness, empathy and a little old fashioned, “You’ve Got This” encouragement can spread like wildfire. It sparked my interest of “WHAT IF?” What if….I could create a place where I share those types of feel good things?! Not just a salon where I do hair, create current/ customized looks thru color and cut design work…but a place to share all that encompasses the idea of beauty and wellness. Teaching the art of self care and self love, how to plan (the struggle for balance is real…why not teach each other), Nutrition and physical movement…even the art of yoga and meditation as a daily practice. All of these things find a place under the umbrella of Hair Alinea. We may begin on the surface but there is always room to grow….hence…A CHANGE IN DIRECTION.
Please read along as I post some of my beloved favorites from CURRENT HAIR TRENDS (CUTS,COLOR,TREATMENTS,NEW PRODUCT FOCUS), SKIN CARE/TREATMENTS AND MY GO TO FOR SERVICES, to exploring BOOKS,NUTRITION, FOOD PREP, WORK OUTS…AND OVERALL BEAUTY AND WELLNESS FROM THE INSIDE OUT.
This is just the beginning. I will share as I feel led to and highlight my favorites when I can. Come along for the ride…It’s going to be a beautiful journey.
