I've never been much of a fancy gal. In fact, I only had a brief stint of highlighting my hair and paying for haircuts before I just went back to my natural boring ways.
Then I had four girls. And as my oldest set of twins got to be about 7, they started noticing salons. They started asking to go to salons. I started having to tell my girls that we can not afford to go to said salons. Then one of my oldest girls (technically THE oldest by 40 minutes) was ready to cut off her long hair to donate it. And the rest of us, including myself, were ready for shorter, easier, healthier hair. Now that I'm a mother to 5, I REALLY needed to simplify somewhere and hair was it. I knew it was time to treat this occasion as special and this was no time to mess with my old DIY ways. It was time to go to the professionals.
Thankfully on our I Heart AZ Friends Facebook page a dear reader of ours, Megan, posted about her haircut specials at her own private salon. We love supporting our readers and this was a deal so good that I could afford. Megan specializes in women's cuts, but was running a children's back to school special and was kind enough to extend her specials to all 4 of my girls.
All five of us headed to Megan's salon on a Saturday morning for our new look.
Megan cuts hair at a location called Signature Salon Studios near Higley and Southern in Mesa. It is a large building with several small salons that each beautician can privately rent. This set up was perfect for my crew. Salon enough, but more private for our crazy bunch. And I loved that Megan is able to set her own hours. If she needs to start a color at 9:00 PM on a Wednesday night she can. This is perfect for women who work or can only sneak away from the kiddos in the evenings.
