First mistake: I went to a new salon I didn’t know. I had seen her work on Instagram and thought it looked beautiful, but I had never actually met her. I’m newer to the area and had yet to find a salon I loved. Since I was going in for what I thought would be a very simple cut and color appointment, I didn’t see how this would be a big problem. I scheduled an appointment and went in, showed her my inspo pics and discussed the color and cut I was looking for.
